'Minions' Scores Second Biggest Animated Opening of All Time


Minions proved to be anything but at this weekend’s box office.

The Despicable Me prequel led the rest of the field by debuting at number one with an estimated $115.2 million.

With its impressive debut, Minions scored the second biggest animated opening of all time, surpassing Toy Story 3‘s opening haul of $110.3 million but falling $6.4 million short of Shrek the Third‘s colossal $121.6 million.

Minions may not have scored the biggest animated opening of all time, but it did capture the biggest animated opening day by pulling in an estimated $46.2 million on Friday.

And here we thought The Lion King was number one. SMH.
