Will Independence Day 2 Destroy Finding Dory at the Box Office?

21 June 2016 9:50 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After several weeks of underperforming sequels, including Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, X-Men: Apocalypse, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Pixar's Finding Dory helped breathe new life into the summer box office with a whopping $135 million opening weekend. This weekend, the lovable yet forgetful fish squares off against four new movies all opening in wide release, 20th Century Fox's Independence Day: Resurgence, Sony's The Shallows, Stx Entertainment's Free State of Jones and Broad Green Pictures' The Neon Demon. While Independence Day 2 will put up the biggest fight, Finding Dory will most likely prevail at the box office for a second week in a row.

Finding Dory's opening weekend haul breaks Shrek the Third's $121.6 million record as the biggest debut for an animated movie, while also surpassing Toy Story 3's $110.3 million mark for the biggest debut in Pixar history. Finding Dory, which features a star-studded voice cast including Ellen DeGeneres, »

Pixar reaches Peak Cuteness in this clip with Baby Dory

20 June 2016 1:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you thought Pixar had already reached max adorableness with Boo and Wall•E and Squirt, Finding Dory proved you wrong on that account. Big-eyed Baby Dory is Pixar at Peak Cuteness. The sequel to Finding Nemo opens with a sequence featuring Dory’s parents patiently supporting their little memory-challenged blue tang. Trailers and other promotional footage for Finding Dory held back from revealing Baby Dory (we did hear her voice, supplied by young Sloane Murray in her first screen credit). Now Disney has released a clip from this opening scene online so you can melt at the sight of widdle Dory on your computer. Also in this clip are Dory’s mom and dad, voiced by Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy, who became Pixar’s way of excellently representing parents raising children with a learning disability.

Finding Dory Breaks Box Office Records with $136.1 Million Weekend

19 June 2016 12:18 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

While there have already been plenty of massive hits at the box office in the first half of this year, a number of sequels have been underperforming as of late. Both X-Men: Apocalypse and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows came in far below their predecessors over the past few weeks, although last weekend's The Conjuring 2 opened on par with the first movie. This weekend, Finding Dory breathed new life into the summer movie season by opening with $136.1 million, the third highest debut this year.

Box Office Mojo reports that Finding Dory opened in a whopping 4,305 theaters, the 12th widest release of all time. Warner Bros' Central Intelligence opened in a distant second place but still performed well, earning $34.5 million, earning a solid $9,835 per-screen average from 3,508 theaters.

19 June 2016 11:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Disney’s stellar 2016 at the box office just keeps on going, with Pixar sequel Finding Dory enjoying a whopping $136.2 million domestic opening, surpassing Shrek the Third’s $121.6 million haul to set a new record for the biggest ever animated debut in North America.

“In a funny way, the 13-year separation between the first and second movie was serendipitous,” states Disney domestic distribution chief Dave Hollis (via THR). “It’s part of what created a want-to-see, need-to-see movement. And it’s the 17th consecutive Pixar film to receive some variation of an A CinemaScore.”

Finding Dory Breaks Thursday Box Office Animated Movie Record

17 June 2016 11:02 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier this week, we projected that Disney Pixar's Finding Dory was on track to take in a predicted $116 million in its opening weekend at the box office. While we'll have to wait until Sunday morning to see if those numbers hold up, the animated sequel has already broken a record at the box office in its Thursday night sneak preview screenings. Finding Dory has taken in an estimated $9.2 million on Thursday night, the highest total ever for an animated movie.

Deadline reports that this tally shatters the previous record set by Universal's Minions, which earned $6.2 million from Thursday screenings last summer, en route to a $115.7 million opening weekend. It's possible that, with this strong start on Thursday, Finding Dory could break the record for the biggest opening weekend ever for an animated movie, set by DreamWorks Animation's Shrek the Third ($121.6 million) in 2007. Finding Dory's $9.2 million mark also bested Pixar's Toy Story 3 ($4 million, »

Bringing your movie mom on your show can lead to awkwardness...especially when she unveils Tmi... Diane Keaton was a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in an episode that aired Friday. The 70-year-old actress, who plays Dory's mother in Finding Dory alongside Ellen DeGeneres, 58, who reprises her role as the main character, played Who'd You Rather?

Movie Review – Finding Dory (2016)

17 June 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Finding Dory, 2016.

Directed by Andrew Stanton and Angus MacLane.

Featuring the voice talents of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olsen, Ty Burrell, Hayden Rolence, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, Idris Elba, Dominic West, Bob Peterson, Kate McKinnon, Sloane Murray, Bill Hader, Sigourney Weaver, Brad Garrett, Allison Janney, Vicki Lewis, Austin Pendleton, Stephen Root, and Willem Dafoe.

Synopsis:

The friendly-but-forgetful blue tang fish reunites with her loved ones, and everyone learns a few things about the real meaning of family along the way.

Pixar Animation has always made feature films that cater to adults just as much as they do children, but in the past decade or so, the studio has really been maturing beyond probably their own expectations as to the meaningful and emotional stories that they can tell with their impressive childlike imagination. Dory was for all intents and purposes a supporting character in Finding Nemo, with »

Diane Keaton Reveals Exactly What Went Down After She Tried to Kiss Justin Bieber

17 June 2016 8:40 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Diane Keaton stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday and opened up about the last time she was on the daytime show, which, in case you forgot, was completely unforgettable. Diane dropped by back in November 2015 and ended up getting the surprise of her life when Justin Bieber came out on stage. After nervously giving the "Sorry" singer a hug and trying to go in for a kiss, Justin snuck away again, leaving Diane adorably flustered. So what exactly happened after their meeting? Diane told Ellen that she tried to reach out, but Justin "didn't reach back." She then went on to discuss her love of wine, why she prefers chewing on liquor store ice, her maybe fling with Leonardo DiCaprio, and why she's "sexually frustrated" these days. Trust us, you don't want to miss this. »

Finding Dory Has Arrived! Tanner's Pick For What to Watch this Week

17 June 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

This weekend we catch up with some of our favourite underwater friends as Nemo, Marlin and the gang return in Finding Dory! It seems like only yesterday when Finding Nemo was playing in theatres but it was actually 13 years ago! Yeah I know, I feel old too. Dory is about a forgetful fish (Ellen DeGeneres) who with the help of Nemo and Marlin (Albert Brooks) begin the journey to find Dory’s parents voiced by Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton.  Technology has come a long way since 2003.  A couple months ago, I was lucky enough to tour Pixar studios as they were putting the final touches on Finding Dory. All the animators, designers and creators were so excited about all the new ways they were able to bring this movie to life. From the details of the fish, to how realistically the water moves, to bringing newcomer Hank the octopus to life, »

Film Review: Finding Dory

16 June 2016 9:03 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Before we get to Finding Dory, let's take a minute to discuss Piper, the latest short from Pixar Animation Studios

In what may be the most adorable animated short yet, Piper is a simple, heartwarming story. There is such attention to detail when looking at the ruffled feathers of our titular character. Growing up takes courage, and we watch this little guy discover how to feed himself. It's difficult to say more without robbing you of a reason to watch, but try hard to fight the urge to say "aww" out loud. But, don't hold it against yourself if one sneaks out.

Synopsis: Written and directed by Andrew Stanton, Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) is a wide-eyed, blue tang fish who suffers from memory loss every 10 seconds or so. The one thing she can remember is that she somehow became separated from her parents as a child. With help from her friends Nemo and Marlin, »

Review: 'Finding Dory' is a slighter sequel, but with some strong Pixar work

16 June 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

2016 has not been particularly kind to sequels at the box office, and audiences seem to be rejecting films that were overtly created to satisfy a studio need rather than an audience want, a trend I am happy to see. Pixar has had mixed luck with their sequels, creatively speaking, but seems to recognize as a company that story should drive these decisions above everything else. Andrew Stanton’s Finding Dory, co-directed with Angus MacLane, has to be considered a victory based on how well it justifies its own existence, telling a story that is built on a solid emotional foundation and driven by new encounters with characters we genuinely adore. Finding Nemo is rightly considered one of the crown jewels of Pixar’s overall history, a thematically rich story that took full advantage of the remarkable technical muscle of the studio. Albert Brooks and Ellen DeGeneres is one of the most unlikely comedy duos I can name, but they were perfect together as Marlin (Brooks) and Dory (DeGeneres), two fish who teamed up to find Marlin’s missing son. Warm and funny and emotionally devastating in places, Finding Nemo sums up everything that is exciting about what Pixar does as a studio. Finding Dory, on the other hand, serves as a reminder that Pixar is made up of human beings, and it’s not some monolithic perfect machine churning out one perfect thing after another. More than the first film, I can feel how hard everyone’s working here, and while the end result is enjoyable, it’s also far more overtly calculated than the first. Let’s be honest… it’s hard to make a sequel under any circumstances. The real problem that Pixar has is that they’re competing with their own history at this point. It helps that they had this great defining characteristic for Dory, her complete and utter lack of short-term memory, which was mined for so much humor in the first film. This time, they open the film with an extended sequence in which we meet baby Dory, who pushes the definition of the word “cute” right to the breaking point, voiced by Sloane Murray, as her parents Jenny (Diane Keaton) and Charlie (Eugene Levy) work with her to make sure that she’ll be safe no matter what, and honestly… just typing those words… it chokes me up all over again. It’s a more subtle gutpunch than the opening of Up, but it cuts right to the heart the same way the single shot flashback at the end of Finding Nemo did. One of the things about Pixar’s story department is that they emphasize the fundamentals of structure, both for the film as a whole and for the individual set pieces, and often, they lay out how a film will end for you way before you get to the ending. Their films end the way they end because they have to; that’s how carefully they structure these things. They are great at setting up narrative inevitabilities that work because they satisfy. That’s what structure can do for you as a storyteller; used properly, it creates a satisfying sense of something coming together, all the pieces dropping into place. There’s one main problem I have with Finding Dory. It doesn’t ruin the movie for me, but it’s still a problem. Part of what made the first film so special was the way it emphasized the vast expanse of the world’s oceans as part of what Marlin’s search for his son so dangerous. The second act of that movie is smart and thrilling and really travels. Here, as soon as they start the search, they narrow it down to an aquarium on the California coastline, and in one quick scene, they bypass the entire ocean. Once they arrive at the aquarium, there are some really great new characters and things build and build, with terrific comedy and action sequences, and the ending really does its job. Even so, I feel like this massive short-cut is such a big narrative cheat, clumsy in a way that is surprising for Pixar. It’s like a huge fart at the end of a flawless ballet performance. It takes nothing away from the overall accomplishment, but it sure does land with a thud. Both Brooks and DeGeneres are just as sharp here as they were in the original, but Marlin and Nemo (Hayden Rolence) are side-lined for much of the film. There's a lot less of them in general. DeGeneres carries most of the weight of the movie, and she's excellent. I am an immediate fan of Hank (Ed O’Neill), an octopus who is determined to live out the rest of his life in Cleveland. Brilliantly animated, he’s funny and touching all at once, and his relationship with Dory is the real backbone of the movie. Kaitlin Olson (whose new pilot The Mick confirms that she is one of the great comic catastrophes working right now) and Ty Burrell both get some big laughs as a nearsighted whale shark and a beluga with a malfunctioning echolocator. Idris Elba and Dominic West lean into their natural accents as a pair of seals who take great glee in depriving another seal access to their rock, and they’re very funny. There’s even a fiendishly funny use of Sigourney Weaver. On a technical level, it’s gorgeous work, and comparing this to the original should give you some idea of just how far we’ve come in the 13 years since the first was released. There’s a short film attached to this one called Piper that is stunning, told with photo-realistic animals in a photo-realistic environment, with no dialogue whatsoever. It’s all performance, and it’s startling how good it looks. While I can’t help but feel like there’s a ham-handed fumble of some key story points, Finding Dory does enough right that it won’t matter. Family audiences are going to eat this up, and I do think that when the film lands its emotional punches, it is remarkable. Say what you will, but Pixar understands innately that making their audience feel something deeply is the greatest magic trick in movies, and all of their work as technicians and artists are always focused on making that happen. Finding Dory may be familiar magic, but there’s magic in it all the same. Finding Dory is in theaters everywhere tomorrow. »
