Minions Synopsis
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. After accidentally killing off so many of them—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without a master 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 an adventure 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.
Featuring a soundtrack of hit music from the '60s that still permeates our culture today, Minions is produced by Illumination's Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and is directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda. Brian Lynch has written the screenplay for the 3D-CG comedy adventure, and Chris Renaud serves as executive producer of the film.

I have some bad news for fans of the dumb little yellow helpers known as Minions from the Despicable Me franchise. While it was originally announced that the characters would be getting their own spin-off movie in December 2014, today it's been revealed that the title has been pushed back more than half a year.

The premise used to establish Minions explains that the henchmen have been around for decades, and this story picks up in the 1960s, long before they teamed with Steve Carell’s Gru. Without a true evil leader to follow, three depressed minions go in search of a “gig,” and end up serving Scarlet Overkill (Bullock), a “stylish, bad-ass super villain.”

Following the upcoming Despicable Me sequel, the Minions will have their chance to shine in all their yellow glory. Of course, where there are Minions, there must be a villainous master to serve. And that's where Sandra Bullock comes in. The Heat star and Oscar winner has been tapped to voice the lead villain voice in Minions, which is expected to arrive in theaters late next year.

Despicable Me Minions Are Getting Their Own Spinoff Movie Despicable Me Minions Are Getting Their Own Spinoff Movie
If there were any breakout stars in the Illumination Entertainment animated feature Despicable Me, it had to be the Minions. Gru's babbling bunch of yellow helpers not only proved vital to the day-to-day life of his evil underground lair, but they also proved to offer some of the more amusing moments in the film, which had Steve Carell, Jason Segel and Miranda Cosgrove among the voice-stars. How would the Minions do with their own movie? It looks like we're going to find out.
