Somebody once told us the world was gonna roll Shrek The Third’s prodigious US $121.6M opening in cinemas, a record for animated films that has stood since 2007.
Now, we know who will next bear that honour: Disney-Pixar, with their cinematic leviathan Finding Dory.
Industry watchdog Deadline also predicts the aquatic feature will draw in US $55M alone on Saturday local time, which is another record in and of itself.
*Sigh.* Go wild.
“You just know that movie whether you like it or not. So there’s basically a generation of people now that they feel like ‘Nemo’ is their movie. It’s just part of the zeitgeist of them in their formative years, so that’s just the luck of the draw.”
