Illumination has released a new trailer for the upcoming movie of the little and charming yellow minions.
Set in 1968, the latest trailer for Illumination’s “Minions” has Kevin, Stuart and Bob hitchhiking to Orlando for “Villain-Con,” touted as the biggest gathering of bad guys.
They needed a job and through a henchman placement specialist agency, they found one working for Scarlett Overkill (Bullock), a sexy super-villainess with an inventor husband (Hamm).
The nearly 3-minute trailer offers some glimpses into the characters the Minions were involved with before meeting Gru.
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.
Directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, ‘Minions’ stars Steve Carell, Sandra Bullock, Michael Keaton, Allison Janney, Michael Keaton Jon Hamm, Steve Cougan and Jennifer Saunders.
“Minions” hits theaters July 10.
