This little promo is more a parody of Super Bowl ads than an outright promotion for the upcoming Minions movie, set for a July 10, 2015 release date. If you like the Minions and you like silliness, you ought to love this spot.
Over the past few months there have been a handful of other promos for the film. This first one, which was released back on November 4, 2014, gives the best description of what the movie will be about, which is pretty much the evolution of the Minions from the dawn of time. The little, yellow guys apparently exist solely to serve the worst masters that have existed in Earth’s history. Isn’t it odd, then, that they all seem to be so good natured and fun loving?
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.
