The highly anticipated sequel to Finding Nemo, Finding Dory was another huge success for Disney at the box-office this passing weekend.

The Ellen DeGeneres/Albert Brooks  starring follow-up took 13 years to find its way to cinemas and broke a long held record. If estimates hold, it will hold the highest grossing weekend ever for an animated film, taking $136.2 million - beating the long-held number by Shrek the Third of $121 million 9 years ago.

Reviews have been predictably ecstatic which will only add to the films legs over the coming weeks; it currently stands at an impressive 95% on Rotten Tomatoes.

It was also a solid weekend for The Rock and Kevin Hart, as their buddy flick Central Intelligence, a rare non-sequel or comic book movie, opened strong with $34.5 million. Both men have huge social media followings and pushed the film on their channels, galvanising their fanbases. It cost a modest $50 million to produce.
