Despicable Me 2 BluRay comes home for the holidays

DM2_BD_3D_coverGru, his adorable girls, and the mischievous Minions are back with a cast of unforgettable new characters in the blockbuster sequel to the worldwide phenomenon.  Just as Gru has given up being super-bad to be a super-dad, the Anti-Villain League recruits him to track down a new criminal mastermind and save the world.   Partnered with secret agent Lucy Wilde, Gru, along with the wildly unpredictable Minions, must figure out how to keep his cover while also keeping up with his duties as a father.

The holiday season just got even brighter with the news that Despicable Me 2, the $872 million worldwide box office phenomenon and the year’s #1 comedy, arrives on Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D Combo Packs, DVD and Digital HD including UltraViolet on December 10, 2013, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. The film will also be available on Digital HD November 26, 2013, just in time for families to watch on the go as they gear up for holiday travel.  In addition to more than 45 minutes of hilarious and insightful bonus features, Blu-ray Combo Packs will include, from the makers of Despicable Me, three all-new mini-movies starring the film series’ breakout stars, the mischievous but lovable Minions.  For a sneak peek of these mini-movies, and other great weekly offers from Despicable Me 2, call Gru at **DM2 (**362) from your mobile phone

Despciable Me 2 Minions in ManhattanThis past Thanksgiving since I’m based in Manhattan I was there when a brand new Despicable Me 2 float joins the 87th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade  in celebration of the home entertainment release.   Despicable Me 2 rolled out a deliciously decorated cupcake parlor inspired by the hilarious and heartwarming film and featuring Gru, the reformed master criminal turned devoted dad, and a gaggle of his unpredictable helpers, the Minions.

Fandango wants to send your family to see Despicable Me 2

Fandango-logoI love Fandango… I have purchased dozens and dozens of tickets via their website over the years – its a pretty standard thing in NYC – hundreds of people try to see a movie on opening weekend and there is only room for about 140 people in any given place maybe 300 if you’re lucky… but really going to the movies in NYC is an event – you first have to buy the tickets (for me thats where Fandango comes in)… then you have to get to the movie and wait… and wait – because you want good seats right? how about the standard arrive to the movie before time is now up to an hour and change before a mega movie and just around an hour for your standard popcorn flick.

It used to be you needed to get there 2 hours early to buy your tickets then wait – thankfully Fandango solved that problem – If you havent heard of Fandango – I bet you’ve seen their commercials its the great paper bag puppets.

If you don’t like the idea of buying your tickets before you get to the show (I’m not sure why I’m writing that sentence because then you most likely don’t read blogs) but you still could use their website for great things like Showtimes, Reviews, and Trailers. Fandango is one of my most used apps.

Its great to distract a small child with the coming attractions for some kids movie about to come out – like…. Despicable Me 2!
