With $44.8 million in domestic ticket sales, the animated sequel “Despicable Me 2″ outdid the debuts of the Adam Sandler comedy “Grown Ups 2″ and Guillermo Del Toro’s monsters-versus-robots action flick “Pacific Rim.”
Sony was pleased with Sandler’s second-best movie opening of his career with $42.5 million in sales.
But the third-place finish of the big-budget movie “Pacific Rim” with $38.3 million represented a disappointing start for Warner Bros. and partner Legendary Entertainment.
