Kevin, Bob, Stuart and the boys collectively known as the Minions are in the holiday spirit. And why wouldn’t they be?
After that Minions trailer teased what is going to be their first solo movie, we’d be singing Christmas carols too right about now!
Universal and AMC have partnered to give us this holiday greetings video from our favorite part of the Despicable Me movies – all while getting us uber-psyched for their arrival on screens next summer.
The spin-off movie (we’re so sure it won’t be one that could land on our 9 worst movie spin-offs in history) promises Sandra Bullock (as the super villain they eventually hook up with) and Jon Hamm, in an as yet not described role.
Universal Pictures also gave us a full synopsis of what to expect from the movie that lands July 10, 2015.
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. 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 new evil boss for his brethren to follow.
The trio embarks upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (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.
