by at .  Updated at . Comments

It's a good time to be a cartoon. This holiday weekend, the minions of Despicable Me 2 brought home the bacon with a thorough box office beat down of The Lone Ranger

Despicable Me 2 minions

Beat down might not be strong enough words for what happened. Obliterated perhaps? Whatever you call it, The Lone Ranger's $29.4 million absolutely paled in comparison to the whopping $82.5 million brought in by Gru and company.

Steve Carrell was actually a part of the other success story of the weekend as well, starring in The Way, Way Back.

The summer vacation-themed ensemble film - while in very limited release - brought in $575,000, good for an average of $30K at each theater, best of the weekend.

Here is your your Top 10:

1. Despicable Me 2, $82.5 million
2. The Lone Ranger, $29.4 million
3. The Heat, $25 million
4. Monsters University, $19.6 million
5. World War Z, $18.2 million
6. White House Down, $13.5 million
7. Man of Steel, $11.4 million
8. Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain, $10.1 million
9. This Is The End, $5.8 million
10. Now You See Me, $2.8 million
