4 November 2014 7:23 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Universal Pictures has released a new trailer for Illumination Entertainment's Despicable Me spin-off, Minions, and it actually looks pretty damn funny. I've enjoyed both Despicable Me films, and this spin-off is sure to be a huge hit for the studio. Minions have become quite popular over the years, and I don't know a single kid that doesn't love those yellow troublemakers. 

Below you will find a full detailed synopsis along with the enjoyable trailer. 

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. 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.

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 »

First Minions Trailer and Images Highlight the Despicable Me Creatures’ Origin Story

3 November 2014 6:38 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Universal has released the first Minions trailer and images.  The 3-minute trailer covers a lot of ground, from the Minions apparent origin rising out of the sea to serve a T. rex, to the arrival of three Minions in 1968 New York to find the most despicable master: "The trio embarks upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Sandra Bullock), the world’s first-ever female super-villain."  Like many, I am a sucker for the little yellow creatures---i got a kick out of the short clip that dives into the Minion mythology. Hit the jump for the Minions trailer and images.  The voice cast also features Jon Hamm.  Directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, Minions opens July 10, 2015.

The Minions Are Back In This New Trailer For Upcoming Spinoff

3 November 2014 6:26 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Universal has released the first trailer for their Despicable Me spinoff, Minions. Directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, the film features the voices of Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm and of course, Steve Carell, who will be reprising the role of Gru.

Set to Queen’s Under Pressure, the trailer offers up a pretty good idea of what’s in store for us, and I think it’s safe to say that fans of the loveable yellow creatures will be very pleased with the origin story that the studio has cooked up for them.

Though not much footage is shown, Minions appears to be just as cute and adorable as you’d expect, with the same style of humor that was found throughout the Despicable Me series. Admittedly, it does just look like more of the same, but given how entertaining these guys are, I don’t think that should be much of a problem. »
