By tomorrow, Disney/Pixar’s Finding Dory will cross $200M becoming the fastest animated pic to do so in one week at the domestic B.O. Previously, Toy Story 3 (final box office $415M) and Minions ($336M) accomplished that feat in nine days. Through five days, Dory counts $177.7M. Yesterday, the Andrew Stanton-Angus MacLane directed movie racked up $23.1M, the highest Tuesday ever for a feature toon, and the sixth highest grossing Tuesday overall. Dory beats previous toon Tuesday record-holder Minions ($16.8M). Disney’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens owns the best Tuesday B.O. record with $37.4M. This weekend, Dory is poised to hold on to her top spot at the weekend box office with a $60M second weekend, beating 20th Century Fox’s big summer sequel Independence Day: Resurgence which is looking to gross between $45M-$52M.
