Thursday Night: Minions Have Explosive Start

July 10th, 2015

Minions made an explosive debut on Thursday night, earning $6.2 million from evening showings, which is more than any other film earned for the entire day. However, those numbers will be wrapped-up into its Friday numbers, which we will talk about tomorrow. How good is this? To put this into perspective, Despicable Me 2 earned $4.7 million during its Tuesday night shows and that film went on to earn $84 million during its opening weekend and had a total opening of $143 million. Granted, that film also earned better reviews and opened during July 4th weekend. Even so, a $100 million opening seems very likely. We will know more by Saturday.
