Despicable Me 2

The money train known as Despicable Me 2 continues its torrid pace, as the film retained the #1 box office slot to make $44.7 million this weekend. Adam Sandler and his buddies also scored another hit with Grown Ups 2, as the comedy debuted at the #2 spot with $42.5 million.

Even with all the hype and expectation, Pacific Rim finished third with a respectable $38.3 million. The problem is the film cost $190 million, and the real question is if the film will turn a decent profit for Warner Bros.
