LOS ANGELES — It’s a good time for animated animals at the box office. “The Secret Life of Pets” follows “Zootopia” and “Finding Dory” as the latest success this year, opening to a massive $103.2 million according to studio estimates Sunday.

The Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures film cost only $75 million to produce, and features the voices of Louis C.K. and Kevin Hart.

“Pets” unseated “Finding Dory” from its three-week run in first place. The little blue fish actually fell to third place with $20.4 million, behind “The Legend of Tarzan” which took in $20.6 million.

The raunchy comedy “Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates” also surpassed expectations with an estimated $16.6 million for a fourth place debut. The film, distributed by 20th Century Fox, cost $33 million to make.
