Sequel to ‘Minions (2015)’, ‘Minions: The Rise of Gru’ is rocking at the box office, and the film has generated immense buzz in the audience, especially film receiving excellent response from the family audience, and this is a reply to those people and productions who were saying that due to the family content, ‘Minions 2’ will not be able to survive at the box office. Not only survived, but the medium production of Illumination became a profit gainer film for the makers.
Is Minions The Rise of Gru Hit Or Flop?
As per reports, ‘Minions: The Rise of Gru’, released in more than 4900 domestic theaters on July 1, 2022, has collected $48.20 million on its opening day and $108.51 million on its opening weekend at the domestic box office. Overall, ‘Minions 2’ has so far collected $369.69 million regionally and $569.93 million overseas, for $939.62 million worldwide against its medium production budget of $85 million.
Beyond expectations and fighting with situations, ‘Minions: The Rise of Gru‘ opened excellently at the box office, and it’s currently the 2nd biggest opener film of ‘Despicable Me’ franchise, after ‘Minions 2015’ ($115.71 million). Not only this but ‘Minions 2’ also completed its total budget in just opening weekend, and critics and experts have seen this film as a long-running film despite Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Love and Thunder’, ‘Nope’, and ‘Bullet Train’ was released. Without a doubt, ‘Minions: The Rise of Gru‘ is a huge blockbuster film at the box office, and it is also 4th highest-grossing film of 2022 global.
Talking about the critical response, then ‘Minions: The Rise of Gru’ has received mostly positive reviews from the critics and audience, and it’s received a 6.5/10* IMDb rating based on 76k+ votes, and on Rotten Tomatoes, it scored 70/100% based on 181 reviews.
A notable thing is that ‘Minions: The Rise of Gru’ has performed well at the box office with a normal budget due to its family-friendly content, while last month Pixar’s big production ‘Lightyear’ was also released and despite being a spin-off of a well-known franchise, due to the non-family-friendly content, the film was a total failure at the box office. So the makers who make fun of family-friendly content should learn something from ‘Minions 2’ and focus on family-friendly content.
