Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment just unveiled a whole batch of images from Minions showing off Scarlet Overkill (voiced by Sandra Bullock), her husband Herb (Jon Hamm), Madge and Walter Nelson (Allison Janney and Michael Keaton) and, of course, our main Minions, Kevin, Stuart and Bob.
Minions is set pre-Gru. The little yellow guys have been serving the most despicable villains since the dawn of time, but the trouble is, they have a hard time keeping a master. In an effort to get the minions out of a leader-less depression, Kevin, Bob and Stuart step up and set out on a journey to find a new villain to follow. Check out the new Minions pictures below. The film opens in 3D on July 10th, and also features the voice of Steve Coogan.
Here’s the official synopsis for Minions:
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 (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.
