North America box office experiences big score with 'Minions'

Animated comedy "Minions," a prequel to the "Despicable Me" movies featuring three tiny, villainous creatures, scored big at the North America box office over the weekend according to relevant sources.

The caper, which tells the story of lozenge-shaped, yellow characters whose goal is to serve the most despicable master they can, debuted in the top spot with a haul of $115.2 million.

"Great marketing, a perfect release date and multiple high-profile product tie-ins made this a guaranteed hit and perhaps one of the most perfectly realized movie spin-offs ever."
