This looks awesome. Even though I am in my 20s, even I gotta admit that those little guys are hysterical to watch. Remind me of the Marx brothers and the three stooges.November 4, 2014 at 10:17 am #165305
Can’t wait, I love the DM movies, the first two were so much fun and the Minions are adorable!November 4, 2014 at 10:24 am #165306
I am not really a fan of the Despicable Me movies, and without my favourite character Gru played wonderfully by Steve Carell, I am not sure if I will enjoy this. I’ll still see it, but most likely when it comes out on home video.

^I don’t know, I like that they realize what their biggest draw is, and they are running with it. I’m not even sure if I’ll miss Gru, because the last one wasn’t anywhere near as interesting as the first one.

I can watch the Minions play chess and I’ll laugh my ass off. Can’t wait to see this.July 1, 2015 at 12:12 am #165309
UK box office: Minions makes millions
Minions has just scored the biggest debut weekend in the UK for an animated feature. Most people would struggle to pick Stuart, Kevin and Bob out of a lineup, yet the trio has bested Toy Story, Shrek and all the other big guns from Disney, Pixar and DreamWorks.
With a debut of Â£11.59m, Minions has beaten the opening weekends of animation powerhouses Toy Story 3 (Â£11.49m), Shrek 2 (Â£10.61m) and Shrek the Third (Â£10.33m). Despicable Me 2 â€“ the previous best in the franchise â€“ began with Â£9.95m.
Brazil was also a No. 1 bow, setting the record for the biggest opening weekend of all time for an animated film with $7M at 550 dates. Minions also has 54% market share there and is over DM2â€™s start by 60%. A four-week school holiday period starts tomorrow in Brazil where, contrary to last year, there is no World Cup competing for eyeballs.
– Set the record for the biggest opening weekend of all-time for an animated film in Brazil, UK, Indonesia and Malaysia.

Minions are horrible…July 1, 2015 at 2:24 pm #165312
It will make loads of money, but probably will probably be the exact same as the previous installments. Which may or may not be good, depending on who you are.

The only reason to use Minions and Inside Out in the same sentence is because both happens to be animated.July 2, 2015 at 11:46 pm #165314
I barely get through any commercials featuring those annoying little jabbering Twinkies, I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to get through a whole movie about them.July 3, 2015 at 7:45 am #165315
The cultural appeal of the minions is one of the most baffling and annoying recent phenomena that I can think of.July 3, 2015 at 8:15 am #165316
Seeing this on soon (hopefully). Love those Minions!July 5, 2015 at 2:44 pm #165317
