Dolph Lundgren makes his family film genre debut with the whole brood.
The Rocky IV star, 64, spoke to PEOPLE as he enjoyed a family outing at the premiere of Minions: The Rise of Gru in Los Angeles, where he was joined by his fiancee Emma Krokdal for the first time at an event like this.
"She loves it. I took them out last week and got these yellow outfits," Lundgren said. "I met her three years ago and she hasn't been to a premiere because of COVID, so we're really enjoying it."

He and Krokdal, 25, color coordinated in matching yellow looks with his daughters Ida, 26, and Greta, 20, also in attendance.
"Yellow team to see the Minions," Krokdal captioned photos from the premiere, where she and her future stepdaughters sat in seats decorated as the Minions.
Lundgren explained that he is handling the wedding planning that has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. "It's just because we lost two years," he said.
"Hopefully we'll go to Scandinavia next year, and you can't do that in winter, otherwise you're in the middle of a snowstorm," added Lundgren. "So hopefully we'll do it maybe next spring or so in Norway or Sweden."
The Aquaman actor got engaged to Krokdal, a Norwegian personal trainer, in June 2020 and shared the news on Instagram with a photo of his bride-to-be showing off her engagement ring. "Something very special happened here in Sweden," Lundgren wrote in the caption.
He was married to Annette Qviberg from 1994 to 2011.

In Minions: The Rise of Lundgren voices Gru Svengeance, a roller skating member of the villainous Vicious 6. He told PEOPLE about his decision to take on a more family-friendly role than what he's known for.
"I think being relevant as you get older in this business can be difficult. Obviously, doing that certainly helps," Lundgren said. "And it's also fun to go there with my daughter and see this movie because it's very different from my usual movies."
Minions: The Rise of Gru hits theaters on Friday, July 1st.
