Minions was always going to finish off its opening weekend in first place, but it just broke records as the 2nd highest opening for an animated movie ever!

The Despicable Me prequel debuted to $115.2 million domestically, beating out Toy Story 3 for the No. 2 spot.

Minions’ American premiere over the weekend brings its international total to a whopping $395.7 million, although globally the movie has already been released for two weeks now.

Still, in addition to Bob, Kevin, Stuart and Sandra Bullock‘s success, Universal can now brag about having three $100M+ openings in 2015, with Furious 7 and Jurassic World!
