Minions Outshine the Grown Ups

The appallingly cute minions were heard shouting “Despicable Me 2” beat a bunch of grown-ups and robotic creatures from the #1 spot at the domestic box office this weekend, where $44.8 million resided. Growing up may be hard to do, but on the storytelling scene, it can be extremely profitable. Despite weak reviews, Adam Sandler and friends had a “Grown Ups 2” cool for summer party this weekend, showing up at the #2 spot and celebrating with $42.5 million (beating the $40 million the original film earned in 2010). Moviegoers traveled along the “Pacific Rim,” taking the scenic route to the edge and back before finally arriving at #3 with $38.3 million. “The Heat” cooled off a bit at the sultry #4 spot with a steaming $14 million. The “Lone Ranger” found friends other than Tonto hanging out at the #5 setting where $11.4 million was waiting.
This weekend offered a trip to the pacific filled with action, adventure and odd machinery, grown up entertainment and friendships of the animated, western and successful sequel kind. Comedies appeared like a cool breeze, summer continued to soar and the heat consumed movie theaters everywhere, in spite of the air conditioning!
From seaside days to starry nights, summer under the superstars continues to shine…
