Sound Off: Disney-Pixar's 'Finding Dory' - So What Did You Think? Now that you've seen it, what did you think? "She just kept swimming." Disney his released the latest Pixar Animation Studios movie, Finding Dory, the long-awaited sequel to Finding Nemo (first released in 2003). Directed by Andrew Stanton and co-directed by Angus MacLane, the animated adventure brings back the blue tang named Dory, and her two clownfish friends Nemo and Marlin, for another trip across the ocean. The voice cast features Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O'Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Hayden Rolence, Ty Burrell, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy. So how is it?

Interview: ‘Finding Dory’ Director Andrew Stanton on Sea Lions, Sigourney Weaver, Easter Eggs and More A couple weeks ago, I got a chance to chat with writer/director Andrew Stanton about his new Pixar film Finding Dory. The film hit theaters this past weekend and earned an estimated $136.2 million, breaking the record for the biggest animated opening of all time.

The One Thing That Bothered Me About ‘Finding Dory’ Finding Dory is out in theaters this weekend, and it looks on track to break the record for largest opening weekend ever for an animated film. The film currently sits with a 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and /Film’s Peter Sciretta has called it “more emotional and funny than its predecessor.” I enjoyed Finding Dory, though I certainly didn’t find it a better film than its predecessor. It borrows story beats liberally from the first film (as well as other Pixar films), but what it lacks in originality it tries to make up for in heart.

Legend of Tarzan Image Gallery & Box Office Predictions Warner Bros. Pictures and Harry Potter franchise director David Yate’s upcoming Tarzan movie, The Legend of Tarzan, has long been regarded as a wild card in the 2016 summer box office derby. Movies featuring Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Lord of the Apes have been around since the silent film Tarzan of the Apes was released in 1918; similarly, the Tarzan film franchise is one of the longest-running (and successful) series in Hollywood history.

‘Finding Dory’ Breaks Single-Day Animated Record With $55 Million on Friday Disney-Pixar’s “Finding Dory” continues setting records, bringing in $55 million on Friday for the biggest single day at the box office for an animated movie. It tops the previous record of $47 million held by DreamWorks’ “Shrek the Third” in 2007. The sequel to “Finding Nemo,” playing on 4,305 screens, is also on pace to have the biggest opening weekend of all time for an animated film.

13 movie sequels that bombed at the box office "Finding Dory" might be the first true winner among sequels this year, after 2016 audiences have been largely anti-sequel. HitFix looks back at 12 movies that were supposed to be successful follow-ups but ended up bombing at the box office.http://www.hitfix.com

'FINDING DORY' To Continue Disney's Insane Year, And Save A Sluggish Summer Season It has begun, folks.A film that basically flew under my radar until a month or two ago (I'll admit it, I don't really get excited about cartoons), but has sat atop many "Most Anticipated Film Of The Summer" lists, FINDING DORY, began its hot run last night.Deadline is reporting that the film had a stellar $9.2 million preview showing last night, which dwarfs the $3.7 that last year's INSIDE OUT made for Disney/Pixar on its preview night. That film ended up making $90.4 million in its opening weekend, with a final domestic haul of $356 million.
