This weekend saw the release of two of this summers most anticipated films, and sequels, in Finding Dory and Jason Bourne, and the forgetful little fish won the weekend.
Finding Dory debut weekend in the UK stands at &pond;8.1 million, and excellent opening by all means and not only one of Pixars highest in the UK but also one of the top animation openings.
Compared to 2003s Finding Nemo, and despite the more negative reviews, the film opens higher, but compared to ticket sales Dory (1.1 million) is half a million below Nemo (1.6 million).
Jason Bourne comes in a comfortable second place this week with £7.6 million which is the highest of the series to date.
The BFG falls from the top where it debuted last week to number 3 this week, although if you take in the whole week it is the top grossing movie (Monday - Sunday) with £9.1 million, total gross for the movie is £14 million.
Highest gross and longest run on the top 10 is The Secret Life of Pets which has now grossed £30 million over 6 weeks.
