They may be bumbling sidekicks, but the Minions proved that they can rule the box office all on their own: The Despicable Me prequel debuted to an estimated $115.2 million this weekend, giving them the second-biggest animated opening of all time.
After this weekend, we’ll most likely be able to add Minions to Universal Pictures’ long, long list of box office accomplishments this year. The tiny yellow sidekicks are on track to make about $100 million (or more) in their debut, adding to the more than $141 million Minions has made internationally so far. Only three other films have opened domestically in the nine-digit range this year, and two of them (Jurassic World and Furious 7) have been from Universal.
In The Gallows, Cassidy Gifford, Reese Mishler, Pfeifer Brown, and Ryan Shoos star as high schoolers working on a play gone terribly, paranormally wrong. The foursome stopped by the Entertainment Weekly Lounge at Comic-Con to talk about their own creepy experiences on set.
There is exactly one truly creepy sequence in the entirety of The Gallows, the latest in a string of exhausting horror flicks courtesy of producer Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity, Insidious, Ouija). The scene in question finds terrified cheerleader Cassidy (Cassidy Gifford, daughter of Kathie Lee) desperately trying to regain her composure after boyfriend Ryan (Ryan Shoos) disappears and strange ligature marks begin to appear around her neck.
