US Box Office Weekend 24 June 2016: Independence cant beat Dory

By Robert Hyde | Date 26th June 2016 | Views: 296 times

This week 2 sequels battled it out for the top spot, but despite already having a week on release Finding Dory beats Independence Day Resurgence with ease. Finding Dory, from Pixar and Disney, very easily makes it a second weekend at the top of the US box office with $73 million weekend gross.

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.
