This opening has taken some of us by surprise. Maybe we didn’t think it could do as well as it did, but this weekend’s receipts were big! The update of the classic 1991 animated musical is destined to set a number of records, including the biggest start ever for a PG title (Finding Dory was the past champ with $135 million).
Women drove the record numbers of ticket sales. 72 percent of the audience were females, while 28 percent were males.
The movie had a monstrous debut with $170 million-plus from over 4,210 theaters at the North American box office, one of biggest openings of all time.
