The latest Despicable Me movie is set to release this June 22 in theaters. If you haven’t yet seen the series, the films star the infamous Felonious Gru, which is voiced by Steve Carell. The films are wildly popular on social media, and TikTok videos are becoming a big hit.
The film has a TikTok trend
A TikTok trend for Minions: The Rise of Gru has sprung up following the film’s release. In videos posted online, teens wear suits and go to movie theaters in droves. The video trend has also prompted cinemas to ban the trend. Some cinemas have even banned it following videos of disturbances during screenings.
The film’s premise, about a girl who towers over everyone around her, became an instant hit on TikTok. Its title and premise made the film highly specific. In the film, Jodi, the character who’s taller than her peers, complains that her life is much harder than everyone else’s. Similarly, TikTok users show just how much harder their lives are than Jodi’s.
Similarly, the film’s emotional focus has inspired many TikToks. Several videos parody the movie’s protagonist Dominic Toretto randomly stating “family is stronger than anything.” As a result, the film’s popularity on the app reflects the reactions of viewers to its themes.
The film’s TikTok trend has also made it possible for a broader audience to become aware of the film’s content. This trend also helps drive moviegoers to streaming services and box office.
