Minions: The Rise Of Gru’s $10 million first-day sales have been surprising and impressive. It seems that the second movie from the world of minions will be a good success.
Minions: The Rise Of Gru is the second part of the minions world. The first installment was released in 2015 and had a $115 million opening. Minions first appeared in Despicable Me; But their popularity was so high that Illumination Company decided to introduce these creatures in a separate work and show their adventures on the screen.
Now, seven years later, Minions: The Rise Of Gru has begun its limited theatrical release. Unlike the previous episode, which focused on the minions, this episode also features 12-year-old Gru. It seems the minions have finally found their evil master. According to the summaries of this episode, in this episode, the teenage Guru tries to become a member of the group of supervillains; But he faces their rejection and decides to prove himself to the supervillains.

Ten million dollar sales of Minions: The Rise Of Gru
Sales of Minions: The Rise Of Gru reached ten million dollars on the first day of release. Is this a disappointing sale for Illumination? Not yet!
One thing to keep in mind is that Minions: The Rise Of Gru is a limited release. Illumination Company plans to increase the number of Minions: The Rise Of Gru animation theaters to 3350 theaters at the same time as the 4th of July, the American Independence Day, and after some time, add another 1500 theaters. Such screening procedure is quite standard in America. Usually, companies decide how much to maneuver on advertising and wide release of the film with the sales they get from the limited release.
The thing that makes Illumination hope to sell the second part of Minions is the popularity of the lovely yellow creatures among children and teenagers. Perhaps this popularity has brought the sales of 3.55 billion dollars for all parts of this franchise.
Also, unlike the average scores of the critics, the audience has given an A score to the animation Minions: The Rise Of Gru, which shows that they are completely satisfied with this work, just like the previous episodes. (All parts of this franchise have been graded A.) This satisfaction makes the company still hope for the magic of these yellow creatures.
Although the animation Minions: The Rise Of Gru sold 10 million dollars on the first day of release; But it should be noted that the animation Lightyear had a lower opening than the second part of Minions and sold almost half of Minions.
So far, only Sonic the Hedgehog 2 has managed to have a good opening weekend with disappointing first day sales. It remains to be seen if Minions: The Rise Of Gru can make a good weekend sales like other parts of this franchise or not?
