This Was the Worst 4th of July Box Office Weekend in Decades

These flicks seriously fizzled.
Independence Day Weekend is typically one of the biggest box office boosts of the year. Unfortunately this year's Fourth of July releases Tammy, Deliver Us From Evil and Earth to Echo failed to bring the big-screen fireworks.
Due to bad weather, World Cup competition and, most importantly, a group of less-than-thrilling prospects, this was the lowest grossing Fourth of July weekend since the 1980s, when adjusting for inflation.
Take a look at our video above to find out exactly how Melissa McCarthy's new movie Tammy compared to last year's monster hit, Despicable Me 2. (Spoiler Alert: It did not do well…)
Sorry Melissa, looks like those minions are just too cute to compete with!
