Despicable Me 2 Reigns Again, Leaves Pacific Rim at Bottom of Ocean

If you were to compare Pacific Rim reviews to Grown Ups 2 reviews, there would be little doubt as to who would win the box office this weekend.

But in another example of the public disagreeing with the critics, Pacific Rim came in third place this week to a now twice-victorious Despicable Me 2 and Adam Sandler's Grown Ups 2

Even though Despicable Me 2 took an almost 50 percent cut in revenue its second week out, it still beat Guillermo Del Toro's robots... handily.

Just goes to show, you can spend $190 million on making a movie and it doesn't mean you won't get beat out by a giggling Twinkie.

As for last week's big flop? Well, The Lone Ranger came in a distant fifth, being topped by The Heat, in its third week at the box office. Ouch.

This weekend's Top 10:

1. Despicable Me 2, $44.7 million
2. Grown Ups 2, $42.5 million
3. Pacific Rim, $38.3 million
4. The Heat, $13 million
5. The Lone Ranger, $11 million
6. Monsters University, $10.6 million
7. World War Z, $9.4 million
8. White House Down, $6 million
9. Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain, $5 million
10. Man of Steel, $4.8 million
