Sometimes studios fall ass backwards into good fortune, and that was the case for Universal with “Despicable Me.” Not only was the original movie a smash hit that started a franchise, with a sequel in 2013, and another planned for 2017, but those little yellow creatures were also a huge audience favorite. Now, “Minions” are getting their own chance to shine in a standalone movie and a brand new trailer is here.
While Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Allison Janney, Steve Coogan, and Geoffrey Rush lend their voices to the movie, the yellow guys who can make sounds, but barely form words, are the real stars of the show. And they do have a goofy charm that is pretty undeniable, and there are some pretty great gags through this spot which opens with a trip through history, before settling down with the plot that involves stealing a crown or something. Anyway, you’re not here for the plot but for the jokes, and there are plenty.
“Minions” opens on July 10th.
According to Average Socialite, Minions Premiere in Los Angeles will be held at Regency Village Theatre on June 27. The UK Premiere will be at Leicester Sq. in London on June 11, according to CelebIntelUK.
The information is being shared by The Tracking Board and while I’m labeling as ‘rumoured project’, I really hope this is true.
