It looks like Gru isn’t the only one who loves Minions! Minion Madness has swept over the nation with Despicable Me 2 shattering home entertainment industry records, bringing in $80 million in the first week of sales. That also doesn’t count the worldwide box office earnings of close to $918 million.
So if you have been living under a rock or in a cave since 2010, then you should have heard of Despicable Me. Despicable Me is a hilarious animated comedy that premiered in 2010, with a all-star cast.
Gru, his adorable girls, and the mischievous Minions are back with a cast of unforgettable new characters in the blockbuster sequel to the worldwide phenomenon. Just as Gru has given up being super-bad to be a super-dad, the Anti-Villain League recruits him to track down a new criminal mastermind and save the world. Partnered with secret agent Lucy Wilde, Gru, along with the wildly unpredictable Minions, must figure out how to keep his cover while also keeping up with his duties as a father.
