A popular Minion trend has forced cinemas to begin ‘banning people from entering’. 

It all started when a bunch of fans, predominately lads, began turning up in formal suits to see the highly-anticipated movie, Minions: The Rise Of The Gru.

Although thousands online find it ‘hilarious,’ Odeon has taken action and posted a sign outside its venues, reading: “Due to recent disturbances following the #GentleMinions trend, any group of guests in formal attire will be refused entry for showings of Minions: The Rise of Gru.”

A spokesperson told The Independent that the company was left with no choice but to take action.

“Due to a small number of incidents in our cinemas over the weekend we have had to restrict access in some circumstances,” a representative reportedly told the publication.

The trend became so popular that the film’s official account even took part, captioning it ‘Bobspeed you gentleminions’.

Minions: The Rise Of The Gru is the fifth instalment in the Despicable Me franchise, which follows the backstory of the young Gru.

The movie’s synopsis reads: “In the 1970s, young Gru tries to join a group of supervillains called the Vicious 6 after they oust their leader — the legendary fighter Wild Knuckles. When the interview turns disastrous, Gru and his Minions go on the run with the Vicious 6 hot on their tails. Luckily, he finds an unlikely source for guidance – Wild Knuckles himself – and soon discovers that even bad guys need a little help from their friends.”

Minions: The Rise Of The Gru is available to watch in cinemas from July 1.
