Theater Counts: Secret Life of Pets debuts in 4,369 theaters

July 7th, 2016

The Secret Life of Pets

The Secret Life of Pets will debut in 4,369 theaters this weekend, according to Universal’s announcement on Thursday. That’s 64 more than Finding Dory opened in, and a hefty 542 more locations than Zootopia. Fandango reported this morning that Pets is tracking ahead of Zootopia, which opened with $75 million back in March. Perhaps another $100 million animated opening is on the cards?

Looking ahead to next weekend, Sony report that Ghostbusters will launch in 3,700+ theaters next week, in line with expectations for a big push for the supernatural comedy reboot.
