Starting as supporting roles in the Hollywood blockbuster, Despicable Me, Minions managed to become one of today's most popular cultural icons. And Minions have once again swept the world with their latest film performance.
Since the premiere of Despicable Me 3 on July 7 on the Chinese mainland, the movie has made 922 million yuan ($136.62 million) at the box office, as of July 24.
This is not at all suprising, I went to watch this animation movie last Sunday, seeing people flocked with family or children just to watch it.
Naughty and funny, they usually have one or two eyes.
They mostly speak incomprehensible gibberish, which is partly derived from several other languages, including Bahasa Indonesia, French, English, Italian, Spanish and Hindi.

In such a simple and clear character setting, they have garnered hundreds of thousands of fans around the world.
