Weekend 4-Day Actuals: ‘Finding Dory’ Three-Peats w/ $51.4M; ‘Legend Of Tarzan’ and ‘Purge: Election Year’ Strong w/ $46.5M and $36.1M; ‘BFG’ Small w/ $22.7M

With Independence Day falling on a Monday for the first time in several years, Disney’s Finding Dory led the four-day box office for a third straight weekend with $51.43 million. It’s quickly closing in on becoming the highest-grossing domestic release of the year with $381.78 million through three weeks. Of the three new releases, Warner Bros.’ The Legend of Tarzan started better than many analysts expected with $46.58 million over four days, Universal’s horror sequel The Purge: Election Year continued the franchise’s success with $36.13 million, and Steven Spielberg’s new fantasy adventure The BFG underwhelmed with $22.71 million. Meanwhile, Fox’s Independence Day: Resurgence couldn’t be rescued during its namesake holiday weekend, with a 47 percent drop to $21.68 million.
