After being #1 at the box office for only one week, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse was knocked off the top spot by Universal's Despicable Me with an impressive $60.1 million for its three-day opening.

The 3D animated feature was the big news this weekend as it exceeded expectations and had the biggest opening for an original animated movie not made by Pixar or DreamWorks Animation.

But don't worry about Eclipse, as it came in #2, raking in another $33.4 million, totaling the film's cumulative box office numbers to almost $250 million in the first 11 days of release.

Fox's Predators and Disney's Toy Story 3 came in third and fourth places.

Pretty impressive! What did U see this weekend?

    Predators, every time I saw some one get gutted I though of you Mario pedio.

    Is this movie actually funny? The first time I saw the previews I thought it looked like shite.



  3. 3

    Jeez…when other big movies dropped to number 2 or 3 after a week, you always call them a failure, and say they are tanking. But not your beloved Twilight…oh no…can't say anything bad about that. PAthetic that an almost 40 year old man acts like a tween over these movies.

    "Despicable Me Eclipse Twilight Saga". That phrase doesn't even make sense. Maybe if you said "eclipses" or "eclipsed". My God, do yourself a favour and hire a proofreader. How can you ever be taken seriously when you write at the level of a fourth grader?

    what a great movie! it was hilarious! i loved it!

    I will never see this movie because it pisses me off. You can't even turn on the TV without seeing a commercial for this every two seconds. And really, they needed to have stupid breakfast meals at Denny's?! It's ridiculous. So no, I won't be supporting this film. Like anyone cares, LOL!

    Saw Despic Me last night at the Drive In with my 8 year old son. LOVED it…much to my surprise. Was expecting typical animated film, but there was much more involved. You don't need an 8 year old to go and see this film.

    it's the heat wave…..too hot for the pool and beach so families with little kids all went to the movies.
