The fourth time is still a charm for the Minions.

“Despicable Me 4” wowed moviegoers on its second day in theaters Friday, earning the No.1 spot in the box office and more than $27 million in ticket sales, The Numbers reported.

The animated comedy, which serves as the sequel to 2017’s “Despicable Me 3” and the sixth overall installment in the “Despicable Me” franchise, is slated to rake in $120 million at the end of the five-day holiday weekend, according to Deadline.

“Inside Out 2” remained in second place, with sales of $10.6 million. The Disney-Pixar flick just passed the $1 billion dollar mark in the worldwide box office, faster than any animated movie in history, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
