Check out the first trailer for the Despicable Me spinoff, Minions
The first DESPICABLE ME was fun and original. The second one was pretty rough, but the only bright spot was the loveable Minions (I love their rendition of ‘I Swear’). Well, Universal is a smart studio and they realized they had a gold mine with the loveable Minions, so they gave them their own movie. And despite my best efforts not to laugh, I just couldn’t help it. They’re so darn cute. And if they keep the 60’s setting, I’ll be thrilled. Check out the first teaser trailer below and see for yourself.
The official MINIONS synopsis: 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. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without someone 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 a thrilling journey 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. MINIONS features the voices of Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm Michael Keaton, Steve Coogan and Allison Janney. The Pierre Coffin directed film hits theaters on July 10th, 2015.
