The trailer for the Minions is coming!

It’s due on Tuesday. There’s also a poster and a revised 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. 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”.

Which sounds encouragingly bonkaz!

The Minion movie – what we know so far

despicable_me_2_3

If you read this blog even occasionally you will probably know about my adoration for the Minions from Despicable Me. So I’m excited that they are going to get a film of their own.

It’s due to be released in Summer 2015. Pierre Coffin returns as director. Sandra Bullock and John Hamm star as Scarlet and Herb Overkill.

The plot sounds promisingly bonkers:

Minions are yellow henchmen, who have existed since the beginning of time, evolving from yellow single-celled organisms into beings who have only one purpose: to serve the history’s [sic] most ambitious villains. After their ineptitude destroys all their masters, including T. Rex and Dracula, they decide to isolate themselves from the world and start a new life in Antarctica. Sometime in the 1960’s, the lack of a master drives them into depression, so Kevin the Minion and two other volunteers set out to find a new one. They arrive at a villain convention, where they compete for the right to be henchmen for Scarlet Overkill, a stylish and ambitious villain determined to dominate the world and become the first female super-villain.
