stronger than Top Gun and Jurassic World, the yellow creatures in overalls recorded 600,000 admissions for their first day of operation.
A comeback. With 600,000 admissions on its first day of release (including 95,000 previews), the animated film The Minions 2: Once Upon a Time Gru, made the best start of the year. They dethroned the mastodons Jurassic World: the world after and Top Gun Maverick.
First imagined as simple comic commas to humanize this endearing antihero of Me, ugly and mean released in 2010, the Minions roundly stole the show from their master. Seven years after the first film, we find Kevin, Stuart, Bob and their friends in 1976. Released Friday in the United States where it also made a triumphThe Minions 2: Once Upon a Time Gruwhose broadcast was delayed by two years by Universal because of the pandemic, explores the origins of the franchise’s main character.
In this part signed Kyle Balda, the young Gru is 12 years old and dreams of only one thing: to become a super-villain like his idols of the moment, the Machiavellian Vicious Six. Will Karnage (whose French voice is provided by Gérard Darmon) is the undisputed leader. When he has just stolen an amulet with terrifying magical powers, hidden deep in the equatorial jungle, his colleagues betray him and take the precious loot away. As the gang has made a name for itself on the name of the Vicious Six, it becomes urgent to recruit a new member to maintain its reputation.
The critic of Figaro Olivier Delcroix, rate the film as a “focused on 1:20, this little jewel of slapstick signed Kyle Balda plays the full card of non-stop action, sprinkled with a subversive and referential humor, which backfires like the final bouquet of a merry fire artifice.”
