Posted by Luis Cuevas on Jul 8, 2013 - 2:42:55 PM

HOLLYWOOD—“Despicable Me 2” took top honors over the Fourth of July weekend at the box-office. The animated feature starring Steve Carell as a evil mastermind named Gru and his minions took the No. 1 spot with $142 million. Universal had previously estimated the film to gross $82.5 million, but the film far exceeded their expectations, becoming one of the highest grossing animated films.
