Weekend Actuals: ‘Secret Life of Pets’ Leads For Second Weekend w/ $50.8M; ‘Ghostbusters’ Not a Bust w/ $46.0M; ‘Infiltrator’ Starts w/ Weak $5.3M

Universal’s The Secret Life of Pets held onto the top spot at the box office this weekend with $50.83 million, edging out the anticipated all-female Ghostbusters remake from Sony which debuted with $46.01 million. Broad Green Pictures’ The Infiltrator proved a dud with a $5.30 million debut. And Disney’s Finding Dory became the highest-grossing animated film domestically of all time, overtaking 2004’s Shrek 2 (without adjusting for inflation).
