Gru’s little henchmen are off on their own, and they’re doing much better without him – at the box office at least.
Taking the top spot this weekend was "Minions" bringing in an estimated $115 million. That’s the second best debut weekend all-time for an animated film, just barely falling behind “Shrek the Third” which brought in $121 million in its debut.
The Minions’ $115 million debut is also the fourth best open this year. Which is saying something, considering this summer had two of the top three opens all-time.
