Minions in the US box office was the number one film over the weekend! And that was with only so-so reviews (Minions reviews round-up).

It seems the cute fun loving creatures where better at winning over the public than the hardened reviewers!

In its first three days, Minions took $115.2 million, which is better than either of the Despicable Me (where they first appeared; Despicable Me 2 made $83. 5 million).

Internationally the film is also doing well. Minions, now in it’s third week the the UK was still the top movie with takings of $6.5 million. Overall in the UK is it is just above what Despicable Me 2.

Check out the three video features, above, about the main characters of the film; Scarlet Overkill (voiced by Sandra Bullock), Hert Overkill (voiced by Jon Hamm) and of course the three Minions.
