Dory this week grossed $76.3 million globally, now released in 41 countries, this brings its total gross now over the half billion mark to $538.2 million.
There are still many countries where the film has not had a release so the film making it to billion mark is probably at this stage a certainty.
Highest new film of the week is The Legend of Tarzan which shows up in 20 countries and has a debut gross of $56.9 million.
The week had a number of new releases but with the good weather and holidays throughout the world nothing managed to capture the market, or maybe it was the lack of summer blockbuster? The rest of the new releases are as follows: The Purge Election Years at 5, The BFG at 8, Ice Age Collision Course at 9, although it must be said that these film all had single digit country release and are no where near saturation yet.
Here is the top 5 global box office for this week.
An excellent weekend gross of £9.5 million sees the film enter ahead of the weeks other big film Independence Day Resurgence.
Despite having the connection to the Despicable Me franchise The Secret Life of Pets for a new franchise makes an very good debut, in comparison it is far higher that the first Despicable Me but lower than the franchises other films.
With the summer holidays in the coming weeks this could have staying power, and there is little competition until mid July.
Also new this week is Independence Day Resurgence which makes its debut at number 2 with just over £5 million, its been 20 years but the original debuted to £16 million.
Last weeks top film, The Conjuring 2 The Enfield Case, falls to number 3 with a total gross of £7.7 million after a £1.5 million second weekend.
The Jungle Book is once again the top total grossing film on the box office with £45.6 million and the longest run on the box office with 11 weeks.

The film is still playing strong in North America but is yet to open in some key territories including most of Europe.
The Pixar and Disney film total global gross is now sitting at $396.8 million, the one billion mark is surely a reachable target? Also new this week is The Shallows which makes a debut at number 7 with $16.7 million from a single territory, North America.<> Highest total grossing film on the world box office is Warcraft which has now grossed $412.1 million during its run.
Here is this weeks world grossing top 5
The film has now takes $286 million in the US during its first 10 days of release and with the summer now in full swing the film could have great staying power.
20 years after the original film hit cinemas in 1996 Independence Day Resurgence gets a release, but rather than the first film being a massive hit this limps into second place with $41 million.
Independence Day took $50 million on its opening weekend so not only is this film $10 million lower but there is 20 years of inflation to take into consideration.
The summer might not be kind for this sequel and with bad reviews it could have a speedy exit in the coming weeks.
Also new this weekend in America are: The Shallows at number 4 and Free State of Jones at number 5.
