Despicable Me 2 held on to the top spot at the box office for the second straight weekend leaving second place up for grabs between Pacific Rim and Grown Ups 2 and like most things involving our country these days, America let us down once again. The Adam Sandler “comedy” opened up to $42.5 million which is on par with what the original opened up to in 2010. Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim, which got off to a strong start at Friday midnight showings and was a hot topic on Twitter all weekend, fell off as the weekend went on and could only manage $38 million. Let’s just pray that the rest of the world is more forgiving (i.e. intelligent) when it comes to the robots vs. monsters flick.
