Currently, box office receipts are showing good signs, and there could not be a better time to release a big film, especially one targeted at a family audience. We are here talking about the latest animated release of Universal and Illumination, Despicable Me 4, which will open at the ticket window on July 3, 2024, and this is the best time to release this film[1]. The over-expected response to the recently released Inside Out 2 has sent expectations sky-high for Universal’s Despicable Me 4, and as a popular family franchise film, the vibes surrounding the film clearly point towards a great debut.

The heart of Despicable Me is the family audience, and the success of the previous films depended on it. This time too, there is a lot of affection for the fourth installment among the family audience, and this attraction will be shown openly at the ticket window. Considering the promising buzz and pre-sales, production and critics expect a $70-80 million opening weekend for Despicable Me 4 across the United States and Canada, undeniably a solid debut for a medium-budget animated film. Notably, these are just rough numbers, while there is every possibility that these numbers will be much higher on the final table.

It will be a good debut, but this medium-budget film will also do well in the long run. It doesn’t matter that there is a lot of competition around the film, including Inside Out 2, A Quiet Place Day One, Twisters, and more. I believe Despicable Me 4 will surpass all its competitors, so rivals should be worried about this, not Universal.

Talking about long-run projection, then everything is indicating good. Not just domestic but also overseas markets are looking quite promising. Reviews will have no impact on this film. Regarding numbers, Despicable Me 4 will end its box office journey with $300 million domestically and $800 million globally. Read Also: Is The Bikeriders Hit or Flop?

As a medium-budget film, the projected numbers for Despicable Me 4 are quite outstanding and indicate a sure-shot blockbuster and huge money-making film for Universal Pictures. Despicable Me and Minions is a goldmine for Universal, and once again, the numbers prove it. Although Despicable Me 3 has crossed the $1 billion mark at the box office, it will not be easy for this fourth film to touch these numbers. But many times in the past, films have been seen performing more than the projected numbers, so it is expected that Despicable Me 4 will also do something like this.
