Despicable Me 2 Kicks Box Office Butt!

Published

on

Moviegoers went gaga for Universal’s yellow minions this weekend, with Despicable Me 2 grossing a whopping $142 million in five days.

But the news should come as no surprise to the film’s stars, Steve Carell, Benjamin Bratt and Kristen Wiig. HipHollywood sat down with the hilarious trio who confessed this movie is more despicable than the first.”I’m so excited and happy”, said Wiig, who plays agent Lucy Wilde.  “It’s so sweet and the girls are so good and Steve is so funny, and it’s just a feel good funny movie.”

And while Carell is more doting dad than despicable villain this time around, he believes audiences will still love his character, Gru. “There are still elements of his personality he can’t dispense with,” explains Carell. “But he’s trying to be a good dad and heal his villainous ways, and use them for the cause of good as opposed to evil.”

So who’s bringing the evil this go round? Benjamin Bratt, playing El Macho, and he’s absolutely hilarious. Check it out!

Despicable Me 2 is in theaters now!

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
