Despicable Me 2 remained on top this weekend with another $44.8 million, putting it over $229 million for it’s two weeks out. In second place was Grown Ups 2 with $42.5 million, the second best opening ever for Adam Sandler and up from Grown Ups 1. Pacific Rim took third with $38.3 million, unfortunately not the blockbuster many of us hoped it would be. It was the best opening for Guillermo Del Toro though but as much as we nerds love him, mainstream audiences maybe don’t quite get his unique brand of awesomeness yet. The Heat and The Lone Ranger rounded out the top 5. Nothing else really moved up or down to drastically but with four movies on the way this week, expect some shuffling over the weekend.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
