The Secret Life of Pets solved the mystery, animated style, of our four-legged friends, proving Man’s Best Friend to be the most popular guests at the box office party. Heading back to his natural habitat, The Legend of Tarzan brought the jungle to movie lovers who wouldn’t be caught dead in an actual jungle. Still finding plenty of reasons to party, Finding Dory found success for the absentminded bluefish along with a happy home beyond the sea (still well within impressive box-office range).
Although Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, they didn’t have too much trouble getting audience members, both male and female, to make a date in their honor at their local movie theater. The Purge: Election Year voted horror both legal and lethally entertaining, at least for its onscreen participants.
Animation was proudly represented this summer weekend, secretive pets were solid winners and a blue fish continued finding gold. A legend was still lookin’ good, politicians were being purged of their sins and sinful comedy came cruising into town for the special occasion.
