This summer, from the biggest global animated franchise in history, comes the story of how the world’s greatest supervillain first met the iconic Minions, created the most hated movie crew and faced the most unstoppable criminal force ever assembled. in Minions: The Rise of Gru.
Long before he became the master of evil, Grove (Oscar nominee Steve Carell) is a 12-year-old boy on the outskirts of the 1970s who plans to take over the world from his basement. It is not going very well. When Gru intersects with the Minions, including Kevin, Stuart, Bob and Otto – a new Minion sports bra and a desperate need to thank – this unexpected family joins forces. Together, they build their first nest, design their first weapons, and try to complete their first missions.
When the infamous supergroup supervillain, Vicious 6, ousts their leader — legendary martial arts fighter Wild Knuckles (Oscar-winning Alan Arkin) – Gru, their most loyal fanboy, is interviewed to become their youngest member. Vicious 6 is not impressed by the derogatory, wannabe evil, but then Gru overcomes them (and infuriates them) and suddenly finds the deadly enemy at the top of evil. With Gru running, the Minions try to master the art of kung fu to save him, and Gru discovers that even the bad guys need some help from their friends.
