Minion Meet & Greet for Despicable Me 3

Despicable Me 3 is coming out this Friday and it’s one of the biggest family films of the summer. Gru is back and better than ever with his 3 adorable girls and his minions that function like his 3000 additional children.

Despicable Me 3 is the 3rd movie installment in the Despicable Me series. The franchise “has grossed over $955 million domestically and 2.7 billion worldwide with the first three movies (including spinoff Minions).” Despicable Me 3 was an inevitable next step and is expected to smash the box office.

What’s Despicable Me 3 About?

After failing to capture the most wanted villain Balthazaar Bratt, Gru and his wife Lucy are fired from the Anti-Villain League. Soon after, he learns that he has a long-lost twin. With an abundance of new found time, Gru travels to Freedonia to meet Dru. Dru is a blonde-haired version of Gru and tries to convince Gru to join the dark side again. Sibling rivalry ensues and the lovable villain gone good, Gru, has to face his sibling, a former 80s child star villain, and what he wants his own future to look like.

Steve Carrell plays dual roles in this movie as both Dru and Gru. South Park’s star Trey Parker joins the all-star cast of Kristen Wiig Miranda Cosgrove, Russel Brand, Jenny Slate and more! There is so much to love about animated movies and their random love of hodgepodge casting.

Meet a Minion Red Carpet Event 

To celebrate this beloved series, we are having a minion red carpet event on Friday, June 30th and Saturday June 31st! Be sure to arrive early to Stars and Stripes Drive-In Movie Theater with your family, grab some food, meet your favorite minions, and watch the premiere of Despicable Me 3!

What We are Excited to See in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

What We are Excited to See in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

 

On May 5th, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is zooming into Lubbock theaters and we could not be more excited. Last year, the Hollywood Reporter quotes that Guardians of the Galaxy was projected to gross $65 million, but smashed the box office expectations with a 94.3 million dollar US 2014 opening weekend debut.

With opening day of the highly-anticipated sequel creeping around the corner, we thought we would share a few things we are excited to see in Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 2:

1. STINKIN’ CUTE BABY GROOT

 

This one is obvious because everyone just about lost their minds when they saw the adorable sapling sprout in place of beloved Groot. We can’t get enough of this cuddly, baby, tree creature. For you Baby Groot skeptics out there, according to an article in Polygon director James Gunn states that making “Groot a baby was never a marketing ploy. Instead, Gunn said that he has troubles writing an adult Groot for the sequel” and that Baby Groot molded easily into the group.

Well, we can’t saw were mad about it. And we aren’t mad at they decided to put a tiny outfit onto his tiny, branchy body.

 

2. A Killer Soundtrack

In the first movie, the nostalgic, cassette mixtape had everyone over the age of 30 exuding soft giggles and reminiscent sighs of yesteryear. “Set to the all-new sonic backdrop of Awesome Mixtape #2,” Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2’s soundtrack is bound to be an awesome partner to the first. If their trailer theme song, The Chain by Fleetwood Mac, is a taste of what is to come, give us a heaping plate full and about 20 extra servings.

 

3. Family Oriented Sentiment

We are suckers for the plot line that focuses on a squad of misfit characters teaming up to save the world. There is something so relatable about the hodgepodge of characters, their quirky personalities, and their bantering group dynamic. Its familial feel broadens the definition of family. 

Also, we are interested to see what the father/son relationship looks like between Peter Quill and Ego, the (quite literal) Living Planet. Hmm…

 

4. Yo, Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell

Although Kurt Russell and Sylvester Stallone won’t be sharing the screen together like they did in Tango & Cash, we are excited to see these stars added to the impressive cast list. With slight mystery around Stallone’s character and Kurt Russell as a literal astronomical force, it only adds to the anticipation.

We hope you are as excited as we are. Don’t just go to a regular movie theater in Lubbock to watch this epic movie. Watch Guardians with us at Stars and Stripes Drive-In Movie Theater in Lubbock. Get your tickets today.

See you soon!
