Despicable Me becomes highest-grossing animated franchise of all time

With its fourth entry – Despicable Me 3 – edging towards $950 million at the box office, making it the biggest film of the summer, Universal and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me franchise has now topped Shrek to become the highest-grossing animated franchise of all time.

The series, which launched in 2010, has grossed a combined $3.622 billion around the globe, with its last three instalments all surpassing $900 million. Leading the way is the spinoff Minions, which earned $1.159 billion back in 2015. For comparison, the five Shrek movies earned $3.511 billion between 2001 and 2011.

Both series do have further instalments planned, with Minions 2 slated for release in 2020 and Shrek 5 planned for either 2019 or 2020. Puss in Boots 2: Nine Lives & 40 Thieves was also originally due to hit cinemas in 2018, but has been removed from DreamWorks’ release schedule and is yet to receive a new date.

French Box Office Holds Steady During First Seven Months of 2017
Paris– Powered by Hollywood animated blockbusters and action-packed franchises, the French box office held relatively steady during the first seven months of 2017 compared to the year before, with 122.3 million admissions.

Illumination MacGuff’s “Despicable Me 3,” directed Kyle Balda and Pierre Coffin, is the year’s highest earner so far, having grossed more than 40 million euros ($46.9 million) from 4.7 million admissions.

Box-office figures for the first seven months of 2017 show only a slight 1.7% drop compared to the same period in 2016. Last year, France scored its second-biggest box office performance of the last 50 years with 1.39 billion euros ($1.63 billion) grossed from a total of 213 million admissions, thanks to a mixture of U.S. pics and the latest installments of popular French comedy franchises (namely, “Les Tuches 2” and “Camping 3”).

Bo Report: Sony's Spider-Man reboot flies high

'Spider-Man: Homecoming.'.

Sony.s $US175 million bet on rebooting the flagging Spider-Man franchise looks like paying off as Spider-Man: Homecoming smashed opening records for the series in 56 international markets last weekend, including Australia.

That obliterates the $5.3 million debut of The Amazing Spider Man 2: Rise of Electro in 2014, which finished up earning just $16 million.

With school students on holiday around the country, it was no surprise to see Despicable Me 3 seize the top spot at Australian cinemas last weekend, while Transformers: The Last Knight nosedived.

The House, notionally a comedy starring Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell as a couple who persuade a friend to set up a casino in his half-empty mansion so they can send their daughter to college, failed dismally, mirroring the Us debut.

Lady MacBeth and Monsieur Chocolat struggled on debut despite glowing reviews, continuing a generally grim run for independent releases this year.

Second Opinion – Despicable Me 3 (2017)

Despicable Me 3, 2017.

Directed by Kyle Balda, Pierre Coffin, and Eric Guillon.

Featuring the voice talents of Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Pierre Coffin, Trey Parker, Steve Coogan, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Nev Scharrel, Jenny Slate, Julie Andrews, and Russell Brand.

Synopsis:

Gru meets his long-lost charming, cheerful, and more successful twin brother Dru who wants to team up with him for one last criminal heist.

There’s a tender moment in Despicable Me 3 (the latest entry in the franchise from Illumination’s Christopher Meledandri, voice of the mischievously cute Minions and co-director Pierre Coffin, and director Kyle Balda) where Gru (a once again returning Steve Carell) tells his young daughter that “sometimes you expect to find a unicorn but instead get a goat, and that’s life”. Well, much like how goats can actually be adorable, Despicable Me 3 can be another charming burst of fun inside the gadget-infested scene of superheroes and villains.

Film Review: ‘Despicable Me 3’ Reemerges as Despicably Dull

Chicago – This is it. The point where Gru and his Minions went from mildly irritating to excruciating. The series will undoubtedly entertain the children it’s intended for, my twins probably would have liked it if they had been able to come. But pity the poor parents who have to sit through another film full of Minion fart noises… which seems to last for roughly three whole days.

Rating: 1.5/5.0

The movie starts off with Gru (voice of Steve Carrell) and his now wife Lucy (Kristen Wiig) being drummed out of the anti-villains league after letting a super villain named Evil Bratt (Trey Parker) slip through their fingers. Bratt was the child star of an 1980s sitcom who let his mischievous TV alter-ego go to his head after he hit puberty.

Now I happen to love the 80’s, but every joke here is of the worn out seen it a thousand

‘Despicable Me 3’ Makes Double Trouble with Steve Carell’s Gru vs. Dru

‘Despicable Me 3’ Makes Double Trouble with Steve Carell’s Gru vs. Dru
The continuing challenge for Illumination’s popular “Despicable Me” franchise is what to do with Steve Carell’s Gru now that he’s no longer a supervillain. The solution in “Despicable Me 3”: Gru experiences a mid-life crisis and flirts with being bad when he meets his long-lost twin brother, Dru (also voiced by Steve Carell), a flamboyant opposite in every way.

For Illumination, it was an opportunity to draw more out of Gru through Dru in a yin-and-yang way. This allows Gru to get his mojo back by teaming up with Dru to steal back the world’s most expensive diamond from the young supervillain who cost him his job: Balthazar Bratt, a failed child star from the ’80s who never got over the cancellation of his show (voiced by “South Park” co-creator Trey Parker).

Steve Carell doubles your fun in Despicable Me 3 – he not only voices Gru, the bald-pated baddie turned goodie, but Dru, his blond, long-lost twin and a villain-in-training with an even more delightfully bizarre accent. The yellow band of fart-tooting Minions are back (their group sing of Gilbert & Sullivan is not to be missed), as is Kristen Wiig as Gru's wife Lucy Wilde, still trying to bond with his three adopted daughters.

Illumination’s minions are back in the franchise that made them stars, “Despicable Me 3,” and they’re still all dudes. Pierre Coffin’s army of yellow goons have always been exclusively male, and though it might sound chauvinist the animator and voice actor has an explanation. “Seeing how dumb and stupid they often are, I just couldn’t imagine Minions being girls,” Coffin told TheWrap nearly two years ago, when “Despicable Me 2” hit.
