THE WEEKEND BOX OFFICE REPORT

The Minions infested the box office over the 4th of July weekend. Despicable Me 2 broke the record for the highest grossing 5-day weekend with an estimated $142 million worldwide.  This film beat out the first Despicable Me by nearly $30 million.  This proves the world of Gru and his Minions has what it takes to rule the box office and I have a strong feeling we'll be seeing a lot more of them.

Even with Johnny Depp, big stunts, and a beautiful wild west backdrop, Disney couldn't woo fans to fall in love with a classic American hero over the holiday weekend and The Lone Ranger opened with a disappointing estimated $48 million worldwide.  Considering a reported budget of approximately $215 million, this is one of Depp's worst openings to date.

When a condescending FBI Agent played by Sandra Bullock and a reckless Police Officer played by Melissa McCarthy partnered up in a crude chick flick comedy, who knew they now boasts a total gross of over a cool $86 million in two weeks? The Heat conjured up another $25 million this weekend and took 3rd place at the box office.
