Another Record Falls

With an able assist from Cartoonland.

Universal smashed another record on Saturday as it became the first to cross the milestone.

Universal’s $4bn international box office success is powered by the accomplishments of Jurassic World, which remains active on $1.009bn internationally, and Fast & Furious 7, which reached $1.161bn.

Universal and Illumination Entertainment’s Minions remains a potent force and added $22.8m over the weekend to settle on $785.3m. ...

Both Universal and Diz Co. have had banner years, and their animated product has made big contributions to their bottom lines.

And of course, that doesn't take into account all the merchandise, games, and the secondary markets that contribute heavy coin to both conflomerates' bank accounts.

Minions contributed THE MOST to Uinversal's bottom line, from their film division. It's made more than Jurassic World or Furious 7 for Universal--especially since it cost half what the other 2 films did. And then, as you stated, the merchandise. I hope Illumination gives their entire crew hefty bonuses. They deserve it.
