VIDEO. The "Gentleminions", these fans in costume who disrupt the sessions of "Minions 2"


In some British cinemas, the attitude of these young gentlemen in suits, far from being cute, has pushed exhibitors to their interest.

Under their air of children of hearts in their Sunday best can sometimes hide real troublemakers.

In any case, this is what the TikTok videos on the “Gentleminions” reveal.

Since the release of the film "The Minions 2: Once Upon a Time Gru", thousands of videos of young people filming themselves to go and watch this film abound on social networks.

All have one thing in common: they are dressed to the nines, in a suit and tie, to attend the screening.

Is this a nod to Felonius Gru, the iconic super-villain of the "Despicable Me" saga?

Or a reference to an Internet meme, showing a young man dressed in pajamas for his wife's funeral, but in a suit for a banal everyday event?

On the origin of the new challenge that packs Twitter, the theories are going well, and the main concerned seem unable to agree on the question.

One thing is certain, Generation Z was impatiently awaiting the release of the film, postponed for two years because of the health crisis.

On TikTok, the hashtag #minions totals 8.3 billion views and that dedicated to Minions 2, nearly 100 million views, while the film was only released on July 1 in the United States, and is about to be released. release in theaters in other countries, such as July 6 in France.

Screams, throwing bananas (emblematic fruit of the Minions, small key characters of the film), songs during the film, pogos... The attitude of the Gentleminions turns out to be problematic.

So much so that the police have sometimes had to intervene in some countries.

In the United Kingdom, several cinemas have even been forced to take drastic measures, choosing to ban access to theaters for all teenagers in costume.

Universal, the distributor, did not react to the disturbances, and contented itself with congratulating the enthusiasm of its young audience on Twitter.
