With a worldwide box office gross of $935, Despicable Me 2 succeeded where its adorable super-villain Gru failed: world-domination!
Hence it’s not surprising that distributor Universal Pictures is very keen on getting another sequel out as quick as possible. When is "as quick as possible," you minion-seeking hooligans may inquire?
The answer: June 30, 2016.
If that sounds like too long of a minion-less stretch, don’t worry: The Minions spinoff will be out next year, July 2015.
Universal also announced the release date of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, another adaptation of Dr. Seus' beloved classic. In contrast to Ron Howard’s 2000 version, you won’t see Jim Carrey chewing scenery in heavy make-up.
The new, animated Grinch and will try to prevent Christmas November 17, 2017.
