Minions

(2015)

The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression.

But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he—alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob—ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow.

The trio embarks upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock), the world’s first-ever female super-villain. They travel from frigid Antarctica to 1960s New York City, ending in mod London, where they must face their biggest challenge to date: saving all of Minionkind...from annihilation.

Featuring a soundtrack of hit music from the ’60s that still permeates our culture today, Minions is produced by Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and is directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda. Brian Lynch has written the screenplay for the 3D-CG comedy adventure, and Chris Renaud serves as executive producer of the film.

‘Minions’ Takes Down ‘Jurassic World’ with $115M Box Office Win

‘Minions’ Takes Down ‘Jurassic World’ with $115M Box Office Win

Last weekend at the box office, it looked like Jurassic World had secured the top spot for the fourth weekend in a row, with a narrow victory over the animated hit Inside Out. When the actual figures were tallied, the results were flip-flopped, with Inside Out barely beating Jurassic World. This weekend, the race wasn't close at all, with Universal's Minions easily taking the top spot, earning a whopping $115.2 million.

While the critics' reception was mixed on Minions, with a 54% "Fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes, that didn't stop audiences from coming out in droves for this animated spinoff of the Despicable Me franchise, which provides an origin story for these delightful yellow characters. The comedy pulled in an impressive $26,784 per-screen average from 4,301 theaters, and its $115.2 million opening weekend is the second highest opening weekend ever for an animated movie, behind 2007's Shrek the Third ($121.6 million). Minions may be the last summer movie to crack $100 million in its opening weekend, but it's possible that Ant-Man (July 17) and Pixels have a shot at cracking that milestone. Minions also gave the powerhouse Universal Pictures yet another box office record, as it became the only studio in history to have three movies open north of $100 million in one year, following Jurassic World and Furious 7.
