Univer­sal-Il­lu­mi­na­tion Direc­tors: Kyle Balda, Pierre Cof­fin Release Date: July 10 Box Of­fice: $1.15 bil­lion world­wide ($334 mil­lion do­mes­tic) Rot­ten Toma­toes: 54% Synop­sis: Min­ions have ex­isted from the dawn of time, al­ways serv­ing the forces of evil in their bum­bling way. In the swing­ing six­ties, they signed on with the ne­far­i­ous Scar­lett Overkill – a femme fa­tale bent on world dom­i­na­tion. The Word: “Small chil­dren will adore the fre­quent phys­i­cal hu­mor and fast-paced, color­ful chaos set to a Swing­ing ’60s sound­track. It oozes fam­ily fun at ev­ery turn and is a candy-coated spec­tac­u­lar. ... Adults hop­ing for a some­what smarter an­i­ma­tion may need to look else­where.” — David Moyni­han, Dig­i­tal Spy
