Illumination Entertainment’s “Minions: The Rise of Gru,” the fifth installment in the popular “Despicable Me” franchise, is on track to open at $65-75 million over the weekend of July 4.

The film has great reviews and is the only new opener, but still faces a number of titles that are still going strong, including “Top Gun: Maverick”, “Jurassic World: Dominion”, “Elvis” and “The Black Phone”. “.

However, early projections can be deceiving, especially with kids’ movies this year, as we saw “Sonic the Hedgehog 2” easily beat predictions, while “Lightyear” fell significantly below expectations earlier this month.
