Despicable Me Opens To Huge Numbers

Well this was a surprise! The Steve Carell 3D animated film Despicable Me opened up to $60.1 million its first weekend in theaters. This was the best opening for Universal since Fast & Furious was released a year and a half ago. The Twilight Saga: Eclipse dropped to the #2 slot with $33.4 million in its second weekend, bringing its US total to over $237 million. The Predators reboot came in third with a very solid $25.3 million. With a budget of just $40 million, this Fox Sci-Fi film will make a very tidy profit.
