This week’s biggest release is on Netflix where season 2 of The Crown premieres. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything worthwhile on home video either.
Steve Carell played double duty in this third instalment of the Despicable Me franchise, portraying both Gru and his long-lost twin brother Dru. The film grossed just over a billion dollars worldwide, more than any other Despicable Me film but not quite as much as Minions did back in 2015. The bonus content included on the disc skews mainly to the younger crowd, featuring a lot of Minion appearances.
This adaptation of Vince Flynn’s novel hit theatres in the wake of It‘s release and was thoroughly trounced by the horror film, making just $14.8M of its $36M in that opening weekend. It wasn’t really a flop, but there’s no word yet on whether a sequel is in the works. There are 15 more novels to work with if Lionsgate decides to go that way. The 4K Blu-ray home video release includes five featurettes and a Q&A featuring stars Dylan O’Brien and Taylor Kitsch.
