Despicable Me 2 Breaks Overseas Box Office Records


despicable-me-2_edited-1

It seems like Universal/Illumination is in a really comfortable spot these days. In spite of the fact that Despicable Me 2 has yet to open in the US, the CG animated comedy feature has already made $41.5 million from a mere seven international territories. The film is already at no.4 internationally, only a few million behind Disney/Pixar’s Monsters University, which has already opened in 37 overseas territories (netting $44.2 million in the process.)

Despicable Me 2 actually went straight to No.1 in key territories such as the UK, France, French Switzerland, The Netherlands, and Belgium. The film was only beaten by Man of Steel in Sweden and Australia. It is Universal’s top opening of all time in the UK, with an opening gross of $15.2 million, and the No. 1 opening of 2013 so far.
