Despicable Me 2
The year 2013 was unquestionably a memorable one for animation film lovers. Not only did most of the animation films strike a chord with cinephiles, they also did amazing well at the international box office.
To start with, Despicable Me 2 released in 2013. It was the most awaited animation film of the year and it certainly did not disappoint. The sequel to the hit 2010 animated film Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2 saw Gru deal with a powerful new super criminal after being recruited by the Anti-Villain League.
However, understandably, it was not Gru’s heroics which were loved the most by viewers but the antics of the yellow Lilliputian Minions. Interestingly, an animation film titled ‘Minions’ is in the pipeline and will act as a prequel to ‘Despicable Me 2’. Imagine how awesome it would be to watch a film featuring film only these cute-as-a-button minions; sadly though, the film is slated to release in 2015.
‘Despicable Me 2’ is the fifth highest-grossing animation film of all time and the second highest-grossing 2013 film, behind Iron Man 3, making it the highest-grossing 2013 animation film.
