Recapping Last Weekend
The Conjuring 2 easily took the weekend box office crown in its debut last weekend with $40.4 million in receipts. Fellow debuts Warcraft ($24.2 million) and Now You See Me 2 ($22.4 million) took the second and third spots, respectively. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows saw its receipts fall nearly 60 percent in its second weekend of release to take the fourth spot over the weekend at $14.4 million. X-Men: Apocalypse rounded out the top five with $9.9 million in ticket sales in its third weekend of release. It looks like the latest film in that franchise will struggle to make back its $178 million budget.
Opening This Weekend
13 years have passed since Finding Nemo became a worldwide box office smash. Finding Dory will likely satisfy those who have been patiently waiting for this sequel as well as those who are just looking to see a fun, family-friendly, heart-warming movie this weekend. Director Andrew Stanton returns to direct this adventure film featuring Ellen Degeneres’s Dory setting out on an adventure with fish friends voiced by Albert Brooks and Hayden Rolence to find her parents.
The Boston Globe says this film is as good as Finding Nemo. The Minnesota Star Tribune says Pixar has created another classic with this one. Slate has a deeper look at the film that encourages everyone to “just keep swimming.”
Todd M. Thatcher predicts an opening weekend of $117.3 million for Finding Dory.

It’s safe to say that the idea of pairing Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart in a movie is a brilliant one. The Guardian calls Central Intelligence “broad, brainless and impossible to dislike.” The film does the opposite of going over the head of A.V. Club, who says it is “a dud with a few good laughs.” The Statesman, on the other hand, calls this buddy cop comedy “fun, frothy and refreshing.”
Todd M. Thatcher predicts an opening weekend of $34.1 million for Central Intelligence.
