Universal Studios have released the first trailer for Minions, the Despicable Me spinoff on Tuesday.
Directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, the movie will feature the ever famous and adorable yellow troublemakers that were introduced in 2010’s “Despicable Me”.
It will star Jon Hamm as Herb Overkill and Steve Carell returning for a Gru appearance. Hiroyuki Sanada will play sumo villain and creator Chris Renaud is expected to be providing voices for the minions. Sandra Bullock will voice a villain named Scarlett Overkill.
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.
“Minions” is set to hit Philippine theaters on July 2015. It is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
