Directed by David Yates, this adaptation follows Tarzan (Skarsgard) after he has left the jungle to live in London with his love Jane (Robbie).

Tarzan, who changed his name to John Clayton when he moved to London, returns to the jungle to help investigate suspicious activities at a mining encampment down there.

Falling to third place, “Finding Dory” is no longer our front runner.

The Disney film made just under what “Tarzan” made, earning $20.35 million this weekend.

But we can’t deny the success of the movie. Just in North America alone the film has made over $422 million in one month.

The film is a follow up to the 2003 “Finding Nemo” where Dory was a main, and one of the most popular characters in the film.

The film stars the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Ty Burrell, Ed O’Neil, Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy.

A new release makes its way to the fourth spot, the comedy “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates.”

The Fox film earned $16.6 million in its first weekend of release.

The movie follows two party crazed brothers (Zac Efron and Adam Devine) who must bring the perfect dates to their sister’s wedding in Hawaii or their family will cut them off.

The brothers place an online ad to find dates hoping for a wild getaway, but end up finding themselves hustled by the even crazier duo, Alice and Tatiana (Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza).
