The Rise Of Gru At Home




Peacock, NBCUniversal’s streaming site, has confirmed that “Minions: The Rise of Gru” will begin streaming on the platform on September 23. The sequel will begin streaming alongside 2015’s “Minions.” The smash-hit sequel will begin streaming less than three months after its cinematic debut on July 1. Those who don’t want to wait until the end of September to see the latest Minions escapades can digitally purchase the film.

The “Minions: The Rise of Gru” streaming date comes at a time when the film’s box office and theater count continues to decrease. As of this writing, the “Despicable Me” spin-off is currently playing in 2,457 domestic theaters (via The Numbers). This number will likely continue to decrease as prospective “Minions” viewers flock to premium video-on-demand to purchase the film. Once the film is available to freely stream on Peacock, it’s safe to imagine that the sequel will wrap up its theatrical run.

Those who want to stream the “Despicable Me” trilogy will be disappointed to know that the box-office hits aren’t available on Peacock. The first two films in the franchise are currently streaming on Netflix. “Despicable Me 3” is available for rent. While the entire “Despicable Me” franchise won’t be available on Peacock altogether, “The Minions” films can be viewed alongside “Jurassic World Dominion,” Universal’s other summer juggernaut (via Box Office Mojo).
