Minions: The Rise of Gru is one of the most interesting additions to the Netflix schedule for January 23-29.
On Monday, January 23, the streaming service will add Minions: The Rise of Gru to its available content. Kyle Balda directed the film featuring Steve Carell as the villainous Gru. The movie also stars Taraji P. Henson as the cool and confident leader of the Vicious 6, Belle Bottom, and Jean-Claude Van Damme as Jean Clawed. Additionally, Lucy Lawless as Nunchuck, Dolph Lundgren as Svengeance, and Danny Trejo as Stronghold. The film grossed more than $930 million at the box office and was generally appreciated by fans and critics alike
“In the heart of the 1970s, amid a flurry of feathered hair and flared jeans, Gru is growing up in the suburbs. A fanboy of a supervillain supergroup known as the Vicious 6, Gru hatches a plan to become evil enough to join them. Luckily, he gets some mayhem-making backup from his loyal followers, the Minions. Together, Kevin, Stuart, Bob, and Otto—a new Minion sporting braces and a desperate need to please—deploy their skills as they and Gru build their first lair, experiment with their first weapons, and pull off their first missions,” reads the official synopsis.
“When the Vicious 6 oust their leader, legendary fighter Wild Knuckles (Alan Arkin), Gru interviews to become their newest member. It doesn’t go well (to say the least), and only gets worse after Gru outsmarts them and suddenly finds himself the mortal enemy of the apex of evil. On the run, Gru will turn to an unlikely source for guidance, Wild Knuckles himself, and discover that even bad guys need a little help from their friends.”
