movie facts

It is the first animated movie to make a billion dollars worldwide (and did it in only seven weeks), that was not produced by Disney or Pixar, and the first of the Despicable Me franchise to earn a billion. It is also the first movie to make a billion, that was produced for less than $100 million and the highest-grossing prequel of all time. Universal's promotion of the film was intense, spending $26 million on television advertising alone. It is the most profitable of all movies ever made by Universal Pictures.

about the movie

Minions is a 2015 computer-animated film. It was made as a sequel to Despicable Me franchise but as a prequel to the story in the first movie. Critical opinion was mixed, but the film was liked by both young and old. Costing just over $70 million to produce, Minions did well in the United States, grossing nearly $400 million. However, it was phenomenally popular overseas. It has grossed over $1.2 billion worldwide and a sequel is planned for 2020. Produced by Illumination Entertainment for Universal Pictures, it is the 17th highest-grossing film of all time and third highest-grossing animated movie. It was directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda from a screenplay penned by Brian Lynch.
