Top 10 Movies At The US Box Office This Weekend

The latest Despicable Me movie is in theaters now, and it was a big hit at the US box office this past weekend. Estimates posted by Entertainment Weekly show that the animated film Despicable Me 3 featuring the voices of Steve Carrell and Kristen Wiig brought in $75.4 million domestically for the June 30-July 2 period.

That’s well ahead of the No. 2 film this weekend, Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver, which pulled in $21 million. Rounding out the top five were Transformers: The Last Knight ($17 million), Wonder Woman ($15.6 million), and Cars 3 ($9.5 million).

Going back to Despicable Me 3, while it was far and away the No. 1 movie this weekend, it was the second-worst start for the Despicable Me/Minions franchise so far. It’s below the openings for Minions ($115.7 million) and Despicable Me 2 ($83.5 million), but ahead of the first Despicable Me ($56.4 million). Also of note is that Despicable Me 3 played in 4,529 theaters in the US, the most ever for the franchise. Still, it’s expected to be a massive movie, and it could cross $100 million over this 4th of the July holiday weekend.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
