After a slow start to the year for the film industry, things are looking up as Despicable Me 4 hit theaters just before the Fourth of July. The latest installment in the beloved animated franchise has already crossed the $120 million mark in just five days since its release.

The movie began with a solid $27 million on Friday and quickly gained momentum, reaching an impressive $126.5 million in just five days. This success can be attributed not only to the holiday weekend but also to the extensive promotion campaigns carried out by Universal Pictures and Illuminations.

The collaboration with the NFL and various promotional activities aimed at engaging audiences of all ages have played a significant role in the movie’s success. Inflatable sculptures of Minions and Gru, costume characters, food and beverage items, and theater wraps at CityWalk have all contributed to the film’s high engagement.

Family movies have been dominating the box office this summer, with Despicable Me 4 leading the pack. The success of family-friendly films like this one showcases the enduring popularity of animated franchises. As Jim Orr, distribution chief for Universal, puts it, “This is one of the most beloved franchises in the history of film and animation.”

With its impressive box office numbers and its ability to resonate with audiences of all ages, Despicable Me 4 is proving to be a big hit this summer. The success of family films in recent months underscores the enduring appeal of movies that cater to audiences of all ages.
