You know how sometimes a secondary character in a film or tv show will break out and become a huge hit all on their own? Think of Lavern and Shirley (originally on Happy Days) or Fraiser (from Cheers). We loved the movie Dispicable Me and thought the characters of the children and Gru were awesome. But those minions – they were adorable and mischevious and we could have watched a whole movie just of them!
Well, we must not have been the only ones who felt that way because on July 10th, the MINIONS movie is hitting theaters and it looks hysterical!
The MINIONS movie traces the history of the minions from the dawn of time when they were just single cell organisms to more evolved creatures looking for dispicable masters to serve. Through a series of unfortunate events, the minions can’t seem to keep a master for long and fall into a deep depression.
But minion Kevin (remember him??) won’t stay down and sets out to find a new master bringing fellow minions Bob and Stuart with him. Eventually they find their new master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award® winner Sandra 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.
