BOX OFFICE: FINDING DORY Stays At #1 As THE BFG And THE LEGEND OF TARZAN Crash And Burn

It's been another interesting weekend at the North American box office with two huge blockbusters once again failing to find an audience and Pixar remaining on top with their latest sequel, Finding Dory...

It seems like most people are enjoying the nice weather instead of the latest cinema releases this weekend, because while Finding Dory has remained at #1 for a third week, newcomers The BFG and The Legends of Tarzan haven't done well. Earning $41.9 million, Pixar's sequel has now taken its domestic haul up to $372.2 million and looks set to end the four day weekend with $50.5 million. 

Had The Legend of Tarzan not had a budget which ballooned to $180 million, it could very well have been considered a hit, but a debut with $38.1 million for the weekend and $44 million for the four days barely scratches the surface. It appears as if this is another 2016 movie which will only get a sequel if it makes up for its lacklustre performance at home by doing well overseas. Warcraft and Independence Day: Resurgence are in a similar position, with the latter struggling to reach $20 million by Monday.

 
Steven Spielberg's The BFG (an adaptation of the Roald Dahl children's book) has been the biggest failure though, crashing and burning wth $19.6 million over the weekend and $23.6 million by Monday. The ambitious movie cost over $140 million to make a reality, but it seems as if parents decided to take their kids to see Finding Dory instead. Now, The BFG looks to be one of Spielberg's biggest flops.
