The Washington Post

"Despicable Me 2" nearly tripled the take of "The Lone Ranger" at the domestic box office, grossing $142 million over five days.

The terrorists-take-Washington thriller took in a mere $25.7-million, less than the recent similarly-themed "Olympus Has Fallen."

The surprise hit home invasion thriller raked in $36.4 million.

The animated cave family was a hit with audiences, raking in $44.7 million.

The magical adventure raked in $42.2 million.

The action adventure raked in $28 million, which is hardly a fairy tale ending.

The take on the old fairytale starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton earned the top spot at the weekend box office.
