    The weekend was very kind to last week’s one and only new release, Oblivion. Otherwise, the charts have remained more or less static since last weekend.

It sounds like Nemo won't be getting lost this time; instead, Dory, the friendly-but-forgetful fish voiced by Ellen DeGeneres, gets top honors in the aptly titled Finding Dory, due to arrive in theaters on November 25, 2015.
