'Finding Dory' Threepeats On Top and Spielberg's 'The BFG' Flops

'Finding Dory' stayed atop the box office for the third weekend in a row.

After defeating 'Independence Day: Resurgence' last week, the Pixar animation release is enjoying another week on top despite a strong debut from 'The Legend of Tarzan'.

'The Purge: Election Year' came in third while Steven Spielberg's 'The BFG' badly flopped earning just over $22 million. The film was made on a budget of $140 million budget, so it may not even recoup its production costs.

It will rank as one of the biggest flops of Spielberg’s career. That's especially notable because 'The Purge: Election Year', which cost a mere $10 million to produce in contrast, finished millions ahead of it.

And rounding out the top five was the holdover, 'Independence Day: Resurgence', with $16.5 million. The follow-up to the hit has made $76.3 million domestically.

The complete holiday weekend box office:

1. Finding Dory: $50.2 million.
2. The Legend of Tarzan: $45.5 million
3. The Purge: Election Year: $34.8 million
4. The BFG: $22.2 million.
5. Independence Day: Resurgence: $16.5 million.
6. Central Intelligence: $12.5 million.
7. The Shallows: $8.8 million.
8. Free State of Jones: $4.1 million.
9. The Conjuring 2: $3.8 million.
10. Now You See Me 2: $3.0 million.
