WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Finding Dory easily topped the chart with 136MM, roughly 25MM in excess of projections. It could be Disney's fourth billion-dollar film this year (which in turn depends on where The Jungle Book finishes worldwide). Central Intelligence placed with 34MM, about where Kevin Hart and Dwane Johnson bro comedies open, and should profit nicely against a 50MM budget, especially with The Rock juicing foreign markets. The Conjuring 2 showed with 15.6MM on a 61 percent drop; that's probably not bad given the competition and 71MM domestic so far against a 40MM budget is probably alright as foreign markets have already taken in another 116MM. Now You See Me 2 takes the fourth slot with 9.7MM on a 57 percent drop and has a much longer journey to profitability. Warcraft rounds out the Top Five with 6.5MM on a 73 percent drop in its second fram; with only 37MM domestic, the epic 339MM coming in from overseas is saving this from being a nuclear bomb against a 160MM production budget. Below the fold, 364MM in overseas grosses are also bailing out X-Men: Apocalypse.
