‘Minions’ Murder Their Masters In First Trailer

Written by on November 4, 2014 


While Steve Carell‘s Gru was at least the initial selling point of the Despicable Me franchise, focus quickly turned to the legion of little creatures known as Minions. Their popularity has soared enough that they earned their own spin-off feature, and now we have the first trailer today. Whether you find them lovable or can’t stand them, one might be surprised at just how promising of a sell this preview is.

Coming from directors Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda we witness how the minions have, perhaps inadvertently, wiped out their masters throughout the ages. As someone who was lukewarm on the last two films featuring the creatures, this one looks surprising funny, at least judging these first few minutes of footage. Hopefully the rest of the story will follow suit and one can check out the trailer and poster below for the film featuring the voices of Sandra Bullock and Jon Hamm.

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 opens on July 10th, 2015.
