Pacific Rim is opening strong at around $13.5 million for Friday. However, Grown Ups 2 looks to take the weekend as it opened with $16.5 million with terrible critical reviews.
Despicable Me 2 held REAL strong at $15 million and still has a good chance to finish number 1 at the BO. Pacific Rim is headed toward a $35-$38 million dollar opening weekend. The film has grossed $7.8 million in overseas money already as well.
