It's official... the 'Despicable Me' franchise has become the highest-grossing animated movie franchise of all time.
The first trailer for ‘Despicable Me 3’ is with us, and it not only introduces us to the franchise’s brand new villain, voiced by ‘South Park’s’ Trey Parker, but it’s packed full of 80s references. With ‘Despicable Me’s’ predecessors, and the ‘Minions’ spin-off, having grossed a combined total of just under $2.7 billion, Illumination Entertainment are rather confident that ‘Despicable Me 3’ will continue this success, especially since it’s pretty much more of the same. Trey Parker definitely has the credentials to increase the absurdity and silliness of ‘Despicable Me 3’ with his character Balthazar Bratt, who is a former child star that is still obsessed with the character he played in the 1980s.
‘Dory’s’ financial success is something of a high point for Pixar over the past couple of years because neither ‘Inside Out’ or ‘The Good Dinosaur’ managed to reach the same milestone. While ‘Dory’ reviews were generally positive, it wasn’t as universally adored as many of their other movies. In total, ‘Finding Dory’ has taken $1,001,480,568, making it the fifth highest grossing animated film of all time.
It’s no secret that animated movies tend to bring in big business at the box office nowadays, as Illumination and Universal’s ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ has proven. Released in early July, ‘The Secret Life of Pets’has now taken over $800 million worldwide, currently sitting on just shy of $805 million, according to Box Office Mojo. Looking at ‘The Secret Life of Pets’ and its fairly modest budget (in comparison) of $75 million, it perhaps makes its feat a tad more impressive.

A changing of the guard could be coming, as ‘Minions’s’ monumental box office success over the last few months has paved the way for it to topple ‘Frozen’s’ record haul. Currently, ‘Frozen’ holds the record box office haul for an animated film with $1.27 billion. Last weekend, via Entertainment Weekly, ‘Minions’ opened to $20.1 million in China to earn the biggest opening day haul ever in the country for an animated film.
‘Inside Out’ has passed yet another milestone at the box office. Having been roundly lauded by critics and audiences alike it has now become just the fifth Pixar film to pass $700 million. According to Variety, ‘Inside Out’ has amassed $343 million at the US box office, which means that it is currently the highest grossing animated film of 2015. ‘Minions’ is lagging behind with $321.5 million at the US box office.
