Guillermo del Toro's $190 million robot vs. monsters epic "Pacific Rim" didn't take the top spot at the box office this weekend, but, fortunately, neither did "Grown Ups 2."

The honor went to "Despicable Me 2." The animated family film, which opened July 3, took in $44.8 million over the weekend, its domestic total now up to $229.2 million. "Despicable's" now on pace to overtake the box office of "Monster's University" and "Man of Steel," making it one of the summer's biggest hits, second only to "Iron Man 3."
