Universal Picture’s hit the top chart last weekend with its $60.1 million (US) ticket sales from over 3,000 theaters in its weekend opening. The first from stars the voice of as ‘,’ a frustrated villain that plans to steal the moon until three orphan girls came into his life.

The Distribution Head of Universal, Nikki Rocco, says that the movie exceeded the studio’s expectations for an opening weekend. He believes that a number of factors such as jokes for the kids, humor for grown-ups, and heartwarming story for adults worked in favor of the movie.
