... Minions is on course to earn a massive $45 million-plus on Friday for a weekend opening in the $115 million range, the second-best showing of all time for an animated film, not accounting for inflation.
Friday's estimated take includes $6.2 million from Thursday-night previews.
Overseas, where the Illumination Entertainment and Universal prequel began rolling out in select markets two weekends ago, Minions is already a blockbuster and will cross the $200 million mark on Friday. It has opened No. 1 in 43 territories. ...
Funny how Minions is getting only so-so reviews, yet its box office projections keep going up ... up ... UP.
Yup. There is definitely cartoon fatigue setting in.
