Minions Movie Released Today
The extremely popular Minions from the Despicable Me franchise have their own spin off film released today and you can expect the same antics from the lovable yellow creatures that you have seen in both of the Despicable Me films. The popularity of the Minions is worldwide with children from every corner of the globe dreaming of having their very own Minion friends.
The film reflects on the history of the Minions showing how they were created and their previous evil masters before Gru which is referenced in the film as B.G. The trailer gives a peek at some of the evil masters that the Minions have had in the past from a T-Rex to Dracula to Napoleon, showing how the Minions helped their masters meet their unfortunate demise.
The film is based around three main Minions Kevin, Stuart and Bob who set out to find the Minions a new evil master. The film shows their epic journey towards finding their new master. Eventually they find the world’s first female super villain, Scarlett Overkill (voiced by Sandra Bullock). As the film progresses it comes down to Kevin, Stuart and Bob to save the rest of Minionkind from annihilation!
The film's voice cast includes Sandra Bullock, John Hamm, Michael Keaton, Steve Coogan, Alison Janney, Katy Mixon, and Jennifer Saunders.
Here are a few things we learned from the trailer for the new Minions film:
1) While the first teaser showed a slew of minion masters that included the T-rex, Napoleon Bonaparte, and even Dracula, it seems that there is a longer list of masters that they failed: a caveman, and even a group of kangaroos.
2) It has been established in the first trailer that the film will take place before they met Gru from"Despicable Me." It's no secret that he's not their first master either. More details about this film's evil genius has been revealed though, and to start off, according to Coming Soon, their first potential human master is Scarlet Overkill, voiced by Academy Award Winner Sandra Bullock.
3) As seen in the latest trailer, their first mission was to steal Queen Elizabeth's crown, and they were even successful, with a clip of Bob being crowned king. That didn't fare well for Scarlet, however, so she sent the Minions to a torture room, except that the torture did not go as planned, either.
The official synopsis of the film is below:
"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.
