Global Box Office

We've got a sci fi movie heavily crusted with visual effects and a Pixar movie at the top of the list.

International Weekend Box Office -- (World Totals)

Independence Day: Resurgence -- $102,100,000 -- ($143,700,000)

Finding Dory -- $37,000,000 -- ($396,900,000)

The Secret Life of Pets -- $15,200,000 -- ($15,200,000)

Warcraft -- $5,900,000 -- ($412,200,000) ...

The trades tell us:

... The Secret Life of Pets is another slow-burn release. Going out in just the UK/Ireland and Norway this weekend, it played 70 dates for $15.2M worth of kibbles. After playing the Annecy festival recently and screening for European exhibs in Barcelona last week at CineEurope, Pets is pawing at new franchise potential for the Despicable Me/Minions partners. ...

Finding Dory now has an offshore cume of $110.3M after making a $37M splash in 37 markets this frame. There is much more to come for Disney/Pixar’s little fish as release is staggered across key plays over the summer and into September. Overall, excluding China, Dory dropped by 35% from last weekend in like-for-like markets. ...

Landing in 57 offshore markets, Roland Emmerich’s UFO return (sans Will Smith) Independence Day Resurgence scored a $102.13M opening this weekend. That is just within the $100M-$150M range we had heard on the disaster pic ahead of its bow. With an overall B CinemaScore, domestic audiences gave Resurgence a $41.6M start. ...

And it looks like Illumination Entertainment has another winner. And bragging rights to no money losing features??
