Stu­dio: Il­lu­mi­na­tion En­ter­tain­ment Di­rec­tors: Pierre Cof­fin, Chris Re­naud Dis­trib­u­tor: Uni­ver­sal Pic­tures Re­lease Date: July 3 Box Of­fice: $873 mil­lion [$363 mil­lion] Rot­ten Toma­toes Rat­ing: 75% Synop­sis: Gru (Steve Car­rell) the love­able grouch—as well as his adopted daugh­ters and army of yel­low Min­ions—is still strug­gling to ad­just to fa­ther­hood, and things get even more com­pli­cated when se­cret agent Lucy Wilde (Kris­ten Wiig) shows up to re­cruit him to the Anti-Vil­lain League, which needs him to use his evil insight to put a stop to a mys­te­ri­ous new crim­i­nal mas­ter­mind (Ben­jamin Bratt). The Odds: This CG se­quel is a strong con­tender, hav­ing re­ceived largely pos­i­tive re­views and achiev­ing global box of­fice dom­i­na­tion (it is the third high­est-gross­ing film of the year so far). While se­quels rarely make the nom­i­na­tion cut, the some­what weak com­pe­ti­tion leaves the door open.
