After a lackluster first half of the year for the film industry, the tide has turned. “Despicable Me 4” debuted on the eve of the Fourth of July, benefiting from the extended five-day holiday weekend. This strategic release timing significantly boosted its box office performance. The latest installment from Universal Pictures’ beloved animation series has attracted a large audience, swiftly surpassing the $120 million milestone in the US box office. The commercial success follows closely on the heels of “Inside Out 2,” signaling a resurgence in cinema attendance.
