Despicable Me 3 Box Office


Despicable Me 3 won the box office with a gross that wasn’t despicable at all. Get the details and check out the Top 10 for this weekend’s movies below!

Despicable Me 3 is the fourth movie in the Despicable Me franchise, which includes the Minions spin-off. The new installment finds Steve Carell’s Gru discovering he has a twin brother named Dru… also voiced by Carell. Returning voice actors also include Kristen Wiig, Miranda Cosgrove, Steve Coogan and Julie Andrews. With a long holiday weekend, parents are taking their kids to the theaters, powering the animated flick to the number one spot with $75.4 million.

Baby Driver, Edgar Wright’s dream project starring Jamie Foxx and Ansel Elgort, performed in line with expectations. It debuted in second place with $21 million, but when grosses from its early Wednesday opening were added in, the amount climbed to nearly $30 million. In any case, Transformers: The Last Knight secured third place and $17 million, which brought its total to more than $100 million in two weekends.

Wonder Woman lassoed the number four position with $16.1 million. And not surprisingly slowing down in its third week, especially given the new competition, was Cars 3. It took in $9.5 million this time around to rank fifth.

Rounding out the Top 10 were Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler’s new comedy, The House. Amid mostly poor reviews, the film still opened in sixth place with just $9 million. Meanwhile, The Beguiled nabbed seventh with $3.3 million, followed by The Mummy in eighth with $2.8 million. Taking ninth was Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, with $2.4 million. And just making it into the Top 10 in the last spot was the Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyes On Me. It earned $1.9 million.
