Minions trailer

Go into any kids store and you don’t see the main character of Despicable Me on t-shirts. You see his minions. So it was not a surprise when Universal announced a few years back that those crazy yellow guys would get their own movie.

Fast forward to today and the first Minions trailer is here. The film, directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, features the voices of Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm and doesn’t open until July 10, 2015. So, it’s a little surprising but you can already watch the Minions trailer and see some new images below. Read More »

Despicable Me

They look practically indistinguishable from one another and often blur together into one massive horde, but the Minions have emerged as the most recognizable characters to come out of the Despicable Me franchise. Even those who wouldn’t be able to pick the films’ ostensible protagonist Gru out of a lineup are familiar with the creatures, and they’ve even proven popular enough to inspire their own spinoff.

Much of their popularity comes from their distinctive look: they’re small, round, yellow, and abso-freakin’-lutely adorable. But they didn’t always look that way. Directors Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud revealed in a recent interview that in fact, these little guys started out looking less like cheese puffs and more like big ugly orcs. Hit the jump to learn how they evolved.

‘Minions’ Spinoff Pushed From 2014 to 2015

Despicable Me 2

This year has been a tough one for animated films. The Croods, Epic, Monsters University, Despicable Me 2, Turbo, and Planes all opened in the space of six months, and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, Free Birds, and Frozen are due out in the next several weeks. But so far at least, 2014 is shaping up to be a bit less crowded.

Earlier this week, Pixar announced that they were moving The Good Dinosaur from 2014 to 2015, leaving the company without a feature next year. Now Universal Studios is following suit, pushing their Minions spinoff from holiday 2014 to summer 2015. Get the details after the jump.

Jon Hamm Minions

Despicable Me was a hit, and this summer’s Despicable Me 2 is sure to be a hit as well. So Universal is well on their way to production on next year’s spinoff, Minions. They’ve already landed Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock as Scarlet Overkill, an evil woman attempting world domination, and now they’ve added an Emmy-winner to her ranks.

Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm has just joined the film. He’ll play Overkill’s husband, an inventor, who may or may not share his wife’s ambition for the domination of mankind. Either way, they’ll both have plenty of little yellow men to worry about. Read more details about the film’s plot below. Read More »

Sandra Bullock has shown a willingness to mix things up over the years, trying her hand at everything from comedy to drama and playing everyone from wacky free spirits to steady, soothing presences. But the one thing that never really seems to change from role to role is her “America’s Sweetheart” reputation.

Which is why her latest role seems like such an entertaining change of pace. Bullock has signed on to voice the badass lead villain of Minions, the Despicable Me spinoff centered around the adorable little henchmen. Hit the jump to keep reading.
