Neither Leap nor The Emojoi Movie are setting turnstiles ablaze with their box office grosses. That honor would go to this cartoon:
Illumination/Universal’s Despicable Me 3 has made the Gru-vy leap past the $1B worldwide box office mark. With Thursday’s grosses, the Kyle Balda/Pierre Coffin-helmed pic has taken $741.4M at the international box office and $259.05M domestically. ...
There have been two other billion-dollar movies in 2017: the well-loved car epic The Fate of the Furious and a faithful remake of an animated classic, a movie entitled Beauty and the Beast (Let's hope they cut* the original crew in on some of the massive take, since animation artists created the blueprint from which the remake was constructed).
And it's good to keep in mind that the one billion-dollar summer movie from last year was the animated Finding Dory. And the billion dollar winners from the summer of '15? The partially-animated Jurassic World and fully animated Minions.
* I'm joking, of course. This is Hollywood were talking about. The boys and girls at the top share the wealth with nobody unless there is a .357 Magnum pointed to their heads.
