Minions Trailer Tracks The Little Yellow Guys Through The Ages

14 May 2015 9:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After stealing the show in both Despicable Me movies (which is plotting a third installment for 2017), Gru’s adorable, unintelligible henchmen are finally getting their own spinoff. In Minions, arriving this July, it appear that the little yellow guys have a much more complicated backstory than you might have thought. As the latest trailer for the pic reveals, the Minions have been looking for a truly evil master to serve since the dawn of time.

The cute and colorful preview sets up a huge history for the Minions but mostly takes place in 1960s New York, as the goofy mischief-makers find themselves in the employ of Scarlet Overkill (Sandra Bullock), the world’s first female supervillain. Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Allison Janney and Steve Coogan are all also in the cast. Here’s the illuminating synopsis:

13 April 2015 2:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The middle of Spring actually means a new selection of summer blockbusters to look forward to, and with a ton of big-budget films slated to come out within the next few months and beyond, the summer of 2015 looks like one to remember.

From the new Mad Max (which is already on our end-of -year top ten list event though we haven’t yet seen it) to Avengers, Poltergeists, male strippers, talking teddy bears, and a reboot of the Jurassic Park franchise, this summer’s trips to the theaters will be jam-packed with sequels and new tales. From May 1st right through to the end of August, some of the movies on our list could wind up on year-end “best of” lists or even receive some Oscar talk by December.

Grab your calendar, because Wamg has a rundown of this summer’s films we’re most excited about, so check them out below! »

And the Cannes line-up is…?

26 March 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.

With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.

Official teaser announcements have started to roll this week, led by the confirmation on Wednesday that George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road would premiere in an Out of Competition screening on May 14.

Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.

For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »

First Look at Sandra Bullock's Scarlet Overkill in Animated 'Minions'

2 February 2015 8:25 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

From the wonderful teaser trailer to the most recent TV spot, Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment have given us plenty of glimpses at Minions, the animated spin-off of Despicable Me. However, so far we've pretty much only seen the titular little yellow guys in action. But that changes today as we finally get a first look at Scarlet Overkill, the villain voiced by Sandra Bullock, who becomes the minions' new evil boss, before they end up meeting Gru. Director Pierre Coffin says, "Scarlet is an unusual supervillain. She is a dangerously charming woman, which could not have been easy in the late 1960s." Here's a couple photos of Scarlet Overkill in Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda's Minions (via USA Today): Illumination's head honcho Chris Meledandri adds: "Scarlet Overkill has fantastic hair, wears great clothes and has a lethal uppercut. When we turn her loose on the world, she »

Super Bowl TV Spot For Minions

29 January 2015 4:28 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The Minions were the breakout stars of the Despicable Me movies, so the fact that they’re getting their own movie later this year probably shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise!

The spinoff focuses on Kevin, Stuart, and Bob. While the Minions have been scene stealers in the past, whether or not they can carry their own movie remains to be seen. The Super Bowl TV spot below is a lot of fun though, and while it doesn’t contain footage from the movie itself, it should help viewers fall in love with adorable yellow characters if they aren’t already.

Minions was co-directed by Kyle Balda (The Lorax) and Pierre Coffin (Despicable Me 1 & 2), and written by Brian Lynch (Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem 3D).

It’s fair to say then that if you liked any of Illumination Entertainment’s previous movie, you’ll love Minions!
