"Despicable Me 2" Tops Box Office
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.

“The Lone Ranger” starring Johnny Depp and Armie Harmer was a miss for Jerry Bruckheimer. The film made less than $50 million over the weekend, giving it the No. 2 spot. “The Heat”, the action comedy starring Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, continued to do well at the box office coming in at No. 3 with $25 million. “ Monsters University,” the animated prequel came in at No. 4 with $19.5 million. “World War Z” starring Brad Pitt went on to grab the No. 5 spot with $18.2 million.

The indie release, “Fruitvale Station” starring Michael B. Jordan will also be released this weekend. The film took the grand jury prize at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
