The movie earned over $200 million over the Fourth of July holiday weekend out of which roughly $125 million came domestically.

People have now started the trend called #GentleMinion of going to see Minions: The Rise of Gru dressed up fully in suits. The trend is basically young people dress in their finest attire and book entire theaters to throw literal bananas on the screen later and cheer unconditionally throughout the film. The fans of the original Despicable Me, which came out over a decade ago, are members of Gen Z who were the original targets of the franchise. They are now showing up to the new origin film dressed up fully in suits. While Universal Studios approved this trend, theatres are not happy with it.

Fans reacted to the trend on social media

Multiple theaters are banning the #Gentleminions moviegoers but Universal Studios finally addressed the trend. We don’t blame them as The Rise of Gru has had the biggest opening of the Despicable Me franchise, leading to Universal Studios even announcing a Despicable Me 4 for July 3, 2024.

Thanks to the viral TikTok, Minions: The Rise of Gru was a massive hit at the box office.
