Released: July 29
After smashing the opening weekend cume for an animated movie in the States – amassing $135m to beat Shrek 2’s accomplishment and topping the Disney/Pixar’s record set by Toy Story 3 – this looks like it could drown the competition through the competitive month of July.
The one thing forgetful blue tang fish Dory (Ellen DeGeneres) can remember – before suffering from memory loss every ten seconds or so – is that she somehow became separated from her parents as a child.
With the help of her clownfish friends Nemo (Hayden Rolence) and Marlin (Albert Brooks), they all embark on an epic journey across the oceans to try to find her Mum and Dad.
And with sensational reviews Stateside that tags it as ‘funny, poignant and thought-provoking’ it looks like this sequel is going to add an entertaining chapter to Finding Nemo’s much-loved story.
It also looks set to provide another massive hit for Disney/Pixar in the process.
