|Minions premiere July 10, 2015|
The Minions movie may not be out for another eight months but it's never too early to get a glimpse at the lovable scene-stealing sidekicks from the Despicable Me animated series. As expected the trailer released by Universal is full of their slap-stick humor that helped generate over $800 million dollars in worldwide ticket sales for Despicable Me 2.
The minions are in search of a new master. They have a long history of servitude from Dracula, Napoleon even a dinosaur. Stuart, Kevin and Bob end up in 1968 New York in hopes to serve the world's first female super-villain, Scarlet Overkill (Sandra Bullock).
Minions also stars the voices of Jon Hamm, Allison Janney, and Steve Coogan.
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.
