In Theaters This Week (6/30/2017): Despicable Me 3, Baby Driver, The Big Sick, The House

Amy Poehler and Will Ferrell in The House

Each Thursday we look at what is going to be coming out in theaters this weekend, show you the trailers for the big releases, predict the box office winner and just generally give you enough of a carrot to pull you through the rest of the work week.  June 30th has four new options for movie goers (three if you don’t have kids).  Minions, Will Ferrell, Edgar Wright, and a unique romcom await you at the multiplex.

Trailer Time: Despicable Me 3 Trailer #2 (2017) *Of COURSE He Has a Twin Brother*

I really liked the first Despicable Me a whole lot more than I thought I would.  Despicable Me 2 was just a blast and boosted me into Minion Mania!  Then Minions came out, and I was over the whole thing and was hoping it would all just…..aaaaand Gru has a twin brother.  His name is Dru.  They look like pudgier versions of the Woody Harrelson twins introduced in Now You See Me 2.  That was a franchise killer.  Just saying.  Despicable Me 3 releases June 30, 2017.

Trailer Time: Despicable Me 3 Trailer #1 (2017) *Despicable Three*

I really liked the first Despicable Me a whole lot more than I thought I would.  Despicable Me 2 was just a blast and boosted me into Minion Mania!  Then Minions came out, and I was over the whole thing and was hoping it would all just…..oh and here’s the Despicable Me 3 trailer and I’m sure Minions 2 isn’t far behind.  Thank you, Disney and Pixar, for (mostly) carrying animation.  Despicable Me 3 releases June 30, 2017.

Move Review: Minions (2015) *WAY Too Much of a Good Thing*

Minions

Frosting is delicious.  It’s awesome.  If you have a spoonful of frosting, you think….oh sweet merciful heavens, this is outstanding.  By spoonful two, you’re thinking….well, I still like frosting but I feel like I’m reaching saturation.  Spoonful three and you’re mind is screaming THERE ARE STILL 90 MORE MINUTES LEFT IN THIS MINIONS MOVIE…..  Point is, something meant to be used to make something ELSE better, may not be a great thing all on its own.  In my analogy, you’re more than likely to be projectile vomiting frosting.  I’m not sure if that’s worse than having to sit through 104 minutes of Minions.

Trailer Time: Minions Trailer #2 (2015) *Despicable Me Spin-Off*

I love the Minions.  They’re utterly ridiculous and completely hysterical.  In Despicable Me 2, the Minions really stole the show and so it’s no surprise that we’re getting an ALL MINIONS film!  I can’t wait for this, but I hope they don’t try to rationalize them by giving them a detailed origin.  They’re Minions and they do crazy things and seem to have hair-trigger death wishes for each other.  Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm and Miranda Cosgrove lead the voice cast that will not me speaking Minionese (in which I am fluent).  Minions rampage into theaters on July 10, 2015.
