Despicable Me Takes No. 1 Spot at the Box Office, Beats Eclipse

Box Office: Despicable Me Outshines Eclipse

Evil rules! Villain Gru and his army of minions took control of the box office over the weekend with Despicable Me. The animated flick landed in first place, raking in $60.1 million for its debut. That number exceeded studio expectations and was enough to unseat Robert Pattinson and the vampires of Eclipse, which fell to second place with $33.4 million.

Coming in third was the other big new release, Predators which earned a solid $25.3 million. Rounding out the rest of the top five was Toy Story 3 with $22 million and The Last Airbender with $17.1 million.
