When I first heard that there was going to be a Despicable Me spin-off starring the Minions, I admit to be doubtful – though he end credits of Despicable Me 2 were pretty funny.
Now, after two trailers (check out the second one after the jump), I’m really looking forward to watching the little yellow guys navigate their way through a feature-length adventure. Minions premieres on July 10th.
Minions Official Trailer 2. It’s 1968, and the Minions are headed to Villain-Con, the biggest gathering of evil anywhere. Here they meet Scarlett Overkill, first-ever female super villain voiced by Sandra Bullock. In Theaters July 10, 2015.
The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. After accidentally killing off so many of them—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without a master to serve and fall into a deep depression.
But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he—alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob—ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow.
The trio embarks upon an adventure that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock), the world’s first-ever female super-villain. They travel from frigid Antarctica to 1960s New York City, ending in mod London, where they must face their biggest challenge to date: saving all of Minionkind…from annihilation.
Featuring a soundtrack of hit music from the ’60s that still permeates our culture today, Minions is produced by Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and is directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda. Brian Lynch has written the screenplay for the 3D-CG comedy adventure, and Chris Renaud serves as executive producer of the film.
In Theaters – July 10, 2015
Cast: Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Allison Janney & Steve Coogan
