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.

Despicable Me 2. Pixars not exactly on a good streak with sequels.

I want MU to win but those Minions are everywhere in movie theaters. And the kids love them. Both I can see going over 300 though.

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