'Finding Dory' box office crosses $900 million worldwide
The biggest movie of the summer keeps getting bigger.
Disney announced Tuesday that as of Aug. 15, Finding Dory has officially made more than $900 million worldwide. The Dory-centric sequel to 2003’s Finding Nemo has raked in the cash since opening on June 17, and not only is Dory the biggest domestic movie of the summer, but it’s also the biggest domestic movie of the year with $476.9 million total.
Internationally, it boasts $423.5 million and has yet to be released in territories like Italy and Germany.
Dory has already surpassed Finding Nemo’s original $817 million worldwide run, and it should soon pass Nemo’s lifetime gross of $936 million, too. So far, it’s broken records left and right, and it’s both the highest-grossing domestic Pixar title ever and the second highest-grossing Pixar movie worldwide (unadjusted for inflation). Plus, when Dory opened earlier this summer, it set records as the seventh-biggest domestic opening and the biggest animated opening of all time.
This has been a banner year for Disney, and including Finding Dory, it currently holds the top four global releases of 2016. No other studio has released a movie this year that crossed $900 million worldwide, and now, Disney has four of them: Captain America: Civil War ($1.15 billion), Zootopia ($1.02 billion) and The Jungle Book ($949 million).
