Which film will be the top dog domestically?

 

Some info from previous installments:

 

Despicable Me: $56.40m/$251.51m. 4.46 multiplier. 81% Rottentomatoes. Jul 9,'10 release.

Monsters, Inc: $62.58m/$255.87m. 4.08 multiplier. 96% Rottentomatoes. Nov 2,'01 release.

 

When it comes to the sequels.

 

Monsters University is being released on June 21st with World War Z. 

-Less than 2 weeks later-

Despicable Me 2 is being released on July 3rd with The Lone Ranger.

 

MU has a full 2 weeks before being impacted by Despicable Me 2. It's also being released along side WWZ, which shouldn't have a problem with it's opening weekend since it's a different demographic (ie, Wall-E n Wanted).

Despicable Me 2 is being released during 4th of July weekend. 

 

So, which do you think will take the summer for top animated film?

If I can't have this be a VS thread, then I'll edit it to Despicable Me 2 OVER Monsters University.

Gonna go with Monster University on this one.


"You can have all the faith in spirits and the afterlife, heaven and hell, but when it comes to this world, don't be an idiot, because you can tell that you put your faith in God to get through the day, but when it comes time to cross the road, I know you look both ways."

 

"How happy is the blameless vestal's lot! The world forgetting, by the world forgot. Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind! Each prayer accepted, and each wish resigned."

I want MU to win but those Minions are everywhere in movie theaters. And the kids love them. Both I can see going over 300 though.

Domestically, Despicable Me 2, though both will be huge hits.  Worldwide, Monster's University, probably.
