'Minions: The Rise of Gru' has become the fifth highest-grossing foreign film of all time at the local box office, according to Universal Pictures Vietnam.

Last week, it set a new Vietnamese box office record as the first animated film to surpass the VND100 billion milestone after 10 days and became the highest-grossing animated film ever in Vietnam

However, the film's popularity has not shown any signs of cooling down.

It has topped Vietnam's box office revenue for three consecutive weeks, attracting more than two million moviegoers to theaters and earning more than VND160 billion ($6.83 million) after 20 days of release.

With such resounding successes, it has proven to be the hottest blockbuster this summer by becoming the fifth highest-grossing foreign films of all time in Vietnam alongside longtime Marvel's Avengers franchises.

'Minions: The Rise of Gru' revolves around Gru's ambition to become the world's most evil villain and his journey of confrontation with the villain group Vicious 6. The film contains many profound and meaningful messages about friendship.

It is the sequel to the spin-off film 'Minions' (2015) of the 'Despicable Me' franchise by the Illumination animation studio.
