"Despicable Me 3" easily topped the holiday weekend charts.
Edgar Wright's heist movie "Baby Driver" coasted to $30 million in its first five days in theaters, with $21 million from the three-day weekend to take second place.
Rounding out the top five were holdovers "Transformers: The Last Knight" in third with $17 million, followed by "Wonder Woman" with $15.6 million and "Cars 3" with $9.5 million.
In sixth place was "The House" with $9 million, which is one of the worst openings of Will Ferrell's career.
