‘Despicable Me 3’ hits year’s biggest opening weekend in PH for animated film, grosses P93.6-M

Universal Pictures and Illumination’s new comedy adventure Despicable Me 3 ran off with a Philippine box-office haul of P93.6-M to open a No.1 and grab the biggest opening weekend for an animated title in 2017.

Bowing two weeks earlier in the Philippines ahead of the US, Despicable Me 3 proved to be a worthy successor to its previous two blockbuster installments, reinforcing its formidable brand as a family franchise. Its successful launch in PH is the biggest in the region, grossing more than in Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.

  1. SM Mall of Asia
  2. Trinoma
  3. SM Megamall
  4. SM North EDSA
  5. Glorietta 4
  6. Power Plant
  7. Greenbelt 3
  8. Alabang Town Center
  9. Fairview Terraces
  10. SM Southmall
  11. SM Baguio
  12. SM Dasmariñas

  14. Fisher Mall
  15. SM Marikina
  16. SM Fairview
  17. Eastwood
  18. SM Clark
  19. Shang Cineplex
  20. Bonifacio High Street

Illumination Entertainment continues the story of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions in Despicable Me 3.

After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down the latest bad guy to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis. But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother—a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin’s despicable footsteps—one former super-villain will rediscover just how good it feels to be bad.

Now playing across the Philippines, Despicable Me 3 is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
