Minions charm their way to the top of the box office

The lovable Minions found themselves at the top of the box office this weekend by a healthy margin.

The third film in the Despicable Me franchise scored the largest opening day ever for an animated 3D film with $46.2 million and went on to an opening weekend of $115.2 million, the second biggest ever for an animated feature. Globally it has already pulled in $395.7 million.

2. Jurassic World

Jurassic World is still going strong and had another impressive weekend with $18.1 million. This brings its domestic total to $590.6 million and a global haul of $1.46 billion.

3.Inside Out

Pixar is just a never ending winner it seems. Inside Out, it’s latest animated film, took third place with $17.1 million and a new domestic total of $283.6 million. Globally it stands at $435.4 million.

4. Terminator: Genisys

Terminator:Genisys dropped 49.3 percent in its second weekend to end with $13.7 million. This brings its domestic total to $68.7 million. Globally it stands at $224.81 million.

5. The Gallows

The Gallows came in a little under expectations to land in fifth place with $10 million.

Next week’s big releases are Ant-Man and Trainwreck.
