Which film will be the top dog domestically?

 

Some info from previous installments:

 

Despicable Me: $56.40m/$251.51m. 4.46 multiplier. 81% Rottentomatoes. Jul 9,'10 release.

Monsters, Inc: $62.58m/$255.87m. 4.08 multiplier. 96% Rottentomatoes. Nov 2,'01 release.

 

When it comes to the sequels.

 

Monsters University is being released on June 21st with World War Z. 

-Less than 2 weeks later-

Despicable Me 2 is being released on July 3rd with The Lone Ranger.

 

MU has a full 2 weeks before being impacted by Despicable Me 2. It's also being released along side WWZ, which shouldn't have a problem with it's opening weekend since it's a different demographic (ie, Wall-E n Wanted).

Despicable Me 2 is being released during 4th of July weekend. 

 

So, which do you think will take the summer for top animated film?

 

[Turbo not included for obvious reasons..]

If I can't have this be a VS thread, then I'll edit it to Despicable Me 2 OVER Monsters University.

Gonna go with Monster University on this one.

Domestically, Despicable Me 2, though both will be huge hits.  Worldwide, Monster's University, probably.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is the most well-written and visually spectacular film of 2014.
