Ellen DeGeneres, reigning queen of daytime TV, has extended her concurrent reign as box office queen.
The Disney-Pixar animated film Finding Dory, which features the voice of DeGeneres the title character, has topped the US box office for the third week in a row.
DeGeneres’ Dory is a wide-eyed, blue tang fish who suffers from memory loss every 10 seconds or so.
The one thing she can remember is that she somehow became separated from her parents as a child. With help from her friends, she embarks on an epic adventure to find them.
Dory is expected to finish the four-day holiday weekend with an estimated $50.19 million gross.
That would bring the film’s domestic gross to a total of $380.5 million and make it the sixth highest grossing animated feature in history.
This puts the film on course to eventually become the all-time biggest animated hit if it surpasses the $441,226,247 earned by Shrek 2 in 2004.
The rest of the top five all-time list is 2. The Lion King ($422,783,777) 3. Toy Story 3 ($415,004,880) 4. Frozen ($400,738,009) 5. Finding Nemo ($380,843,261).
