‘Finding Dory’ Tops Foreign Box Office With $50 Million

Not content to simply shatter records in North America, Pixar’s “Finding Dory” topped the foreign box office, as well. The fish adventure racked up a hefty $50 million overseas.

In addition to the film’s $136.2 million domestic bow (a new high-water mark for animated film debut), that puts “Finding Dory’s” haul at $186.2 million globally. Disney, Pixar’s parent company, did not release a budget, but most Pixar films cost roughly $200 million to make.

“Finding Dory” opened in 32% of the international marketplace, including such territories as Australia ($7.6 million in ticket sales), Argentina ($3.5 million), Russia ($3.4 million) and China, where its $17.5 million bow ranks as a new best for a Pixar release.

New Line’s “The Conjuring 2” snagged second place on the charts, amassing $41.9 million from 57 territories. The horror sequel opened to $6.7 million in the United Kingdom, $1.9 million in Spain and $1.7 million in Russia. Globally, the film’s total stands at $187.9 million, a strong result given its $40 million budget.

Universal and Legendary’s “Warcraft” took third place with $41.2 million, buoyed by China, where it earned $23.5 million in its second weekend of release. Domestically, the video game adaptation has eked out $37.7 million, but the film has been saved from financial ruin by foreign audiences, who apparently have a greater enthusiasm for orc and human clashes. The $160 million production has earned $377.6 million worldwide, giving it a chance of turning a profit.

The top five was rounded out by “Now You See Me 2” with $15.8 million and “Me Before You” with $13.5 million. Their worldwide totals clock in at $91.1 million and $82.3 million, respectively.
