The animated movie "Despicable Me 3" started in the North American box office much worse than the early forecasts promised him and the studio Universal calculated. By the end of the premiere weekend, he earned only $ 75.4 million in his homeland, that is, ten million dollars less than predicted.
However, the global collection of the cartoon has already exceeded $ 192 million, which is generally quite a good result for project with a production budget of $ 80 million. It should be noted that "Ugly Me 3" has yet to start in many promising markets for it. In particular, in Germany, France and China, it will be released in early July, and in South Korea and Japan, the cartoon will be presented to viewers only at the end of the month.
In second place at the end of the weekend was the movie "Baby Drive", which started with a result of $ 21 million. The third place was taken by the movie "Transformers 5: The Last Knight", which earned another 17 million dollars. Worldwide receipts for this movie exceeded $ 400 million.
Also note that this week, the total earnings of the movie "Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales" exceeded $ 700 million.
