We’ve got an early look at teaser artwork for Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me franchise spinoff, Minions. Check it out below!
Minions serves as a big screen origin story and showcases the unpredictable personality and physicality of the popular yellow characters.
As it turns out, Minions have existed since the beginning of time. They have evolved from single (yellow) cell organisms into the familiar beings we know, and they live for a collective purpose: to seek out and serve the most despicable master they can find.
Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock will lead the voice cast of the human characters as Scarlett Overkill, the world’s reigning super-villain of the 1960s while “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm is also attached to voice a character.
The 3D-CG comedy adventure is produced by Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and directed by Pierre Coffin. Brian Lynch has written the screenplay for the film, which is co-directed by Kyle Balda. Chris Renaud serves as executive producer of the film.
Minions hits the big screen July 10, 2015.
