Minions march to box office success with $120M debut.

The Illumination and Universal’s Minions franchise continues to thrive, with Despicable Me 4 dominating the Fourth of July box office by raking in an estimated $120 million in its first five days, including a weekend total of $72.4 million. This strong opening is in line with expectations and marks a successful start for the fourth installment in the main franchise, and the sixth overall in the Despicable Me/Minions series, which holds the title of the highest-grossing animated franchise of all time. The trend of releasing films around the Fourth of July began with the first Despicable Me in 2010, which opened to $56 million. Subsequent films in the series followed suit, with Despicable Me 2 opening on July 3, 2013, and earning $143 million in its first five days, and the threequel in 2017 starting with $120 million over the holiday period.
