The AMC and Cinemark theater chains are expanding their popcorn bucket offerings with new collectible Minions-inspired merchandise for Despicable Me 4.

The popcorn bucket craze reached new heights in 2024, starting with the sandworm-inspired collectible for Dune: Part Two before Deadpool & Wolverine debuted multiple wild buckets of its own.

Animated movies have also jumped on the trend with Disney bringing a pair of buckets inspired by characters from Inside Out 2.

Despicable Me 4: Where To Buy Cinemark's Popcorn Bucket

Not to be outdone, Cinemark has its own line of Despicable Me 4 popcorn buckets and carriers honoring the film's release.

One of them is a unique container called the "Baby Popcorn Carrier," which is a blue strapped bucket that can be worn over the shoulders like a baby harness. It even includes a grey-striped scarf reminiscent of the one Steve Carrell's Gru wears.

This was made available to Cinemark Movie Rewards members upon purchasing tickets for the movie starting on June 16 (per Instagram) while supplies last.

They were also available through a giveaway with Regal Movies.

This set includes a "Bop Bag," a Despicable Me 4 mini-poster, a souvenir popcorn bucket, and a medium drink.

Although it has not been officially announced by Cinemark yet, the chain's X (formerly Twitter) account reposted the video with the caption, "Looks familiar," teasing an announcement possibly coming soon.
