After four movies’ worth of mini yellow henchmen and conflicted supervillains, maybe, just maybe, the “Despicable Me” franchise has come to an end. But probably not.
The original “Despicable Me” had the smallest debut but ultimately went on to gross over half a billion dollars ($543 million) at the box office.
But the more impressive thing about this franchise is the quality of all the films. Aside from the “Minions” stand-alone movie, all of the “Despicable Me” films have received critical praise.
And by the time you get to movie three in a franchise, a good film is something to be thankful for. “Tokyo Drift,” anyone?
The real winner this weekend is “Baby Driver,” bringing in an estimated $21 million in its first week out. By the end of the holiday weekend, this film will most likely have made its money back. And what’s more, the word of mouth surrounding this film is spectacular.
With 196 reviews tallied, “Baby Driver” has 97% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes and for good reason.
“Every scene is excellent to behold, from the many excellent car chases to him just getting coffee for the crew,” IGN’s Terri Schwartz said.
As for next week my spidey senses are officially tingling.
