What’s that you say? “Minioning” isn’t a word? No, “minioning” wasn’t a word, but it is now, thanks to the hilarious exploits of these anthropomorphic Twinkies.
This latest trailer for the film spin-off of the Despicable Me franchise shows us just how long Minions have been, well, minioning. In the millions of years spent in search of an evil master to serve, they’ve never gotten any better at their purpose in life, yet, much to our delight and amusement, they endure. Minions hits theaters Friday, 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.
Cast: Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Allison Janney & Steve Coogan
