#CrossoverInsider: Holiday Shopping, New Releases, Anniversary Wrap & MORE!

Who could have imagined that a group of little yellow gibberish speaking creatures would be so popular. When Despicable Me was released in 2010, featuring the voice of Steve Carell as the lead villain Gru, it was the aforementioned little yellow creatures that stole the spotlight- the Minions. In fact, they were so popular that they got their own movie (aptly titled “Minions”) in 2015. With the maintained success of Despicable Me 2 in 2013, it was no surprised that a “three-qual” was announced. Despicable Me 3 is the headline new release this week along with seven other titles. Below is a brief synopsis of each new movie;

Despicable Me 3: featuring the voice of Steve Carell- Gru meets his long-lost, cheerful, and more successful twin brother Dru who wants to team up with him for one last criminal heist. (Family/Animated) (DVD and Blu-Ray) Also available to rent @ 2 Doors Down in Manitouwadge!
