The GATE and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment want you to enjoy some time with the Minions, and Gru, this holiday season with a chance to win one of five copies of Despicable Me 3 on Blu-ray.
After a side story telling the origin of the now ubiquitous, gibberish babbling yellow Minions, Despicable Me 3 goes back to the story of a reformed supervillain and his new wife navigating the waters of parenthood while trying to save the world. While Despicable Me 3 doesn’t aim as high as its two proper predecessors in the narrative or emotional departments, it’s still a lightweight bit of fun that the 3 to 8 demographic will lap up happily and adults will get a few hearty chuckles on the side.
Arriving this week on DVD and Blu-ray: the classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s debuts on Blu-ray starring Audrey Hepburn as the one-and-only Holly Golightly; Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph joke it up in the comedy, Bridesmaids; Disney’s animated classic, Dumbo, celebrates its 70th anniversary; plus reviews of Terry Pratchett’s Going Postal and Thor.
This week’s new releases on Blu-ray and DVD include: Paul, the tongue-in-cheek alien comedy starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost; the animated Disney film, Mars Needs Moms; and the stoner comedy, Your Highness.
Opening at a theatre near you this weekend, Kristen Wiig stars in what could be the break-out comedy of the season, Bridesmaids; and Paul Bettany battles vampires in the disastrously reviewed action film, Priest.
