The New ‘Minions’ Trailer Is as Great as Its Soundtrack Choice
The latest trailer for the upcoming Minions movie has arrived, and it depicts the lovable yellow creatures on a quest “to find the biggest, baddest villain to serve.” You can watch it for yourself above.
The movie takes us all the way back to “42 Years B.G.” -- aka, before the existence of Despicable Me’s super-villain, Gru. Queen and David Bowie’s “Under Pressure” plays in the background as the Minions find themselves under quite a bit of...well...pressure, attempting to find an evil mastermind to lead them and running into dinosaurs and vampires along the way.
Finally, the Minions come across Scarlet Overkill (voiced by Sandra Bullock), who tasks her pint-sized cohorts with stealing the English crown from Queen Elizabeth. Of course, the adventure isn’t without its mishaps and mayhem -- some of which involve the royal corgis.
The new ad definitely gives us more insight into the upcoming film's plot than the spot that aired during the 2015 Super Bowl. However, we'll have to wait until July 10 when Minions lands in theaters.
We’re not the only ones celebrating the release of another movie in the Despicable Me franchise. With some added encouragement from soundtrack contributor and "Happy" singer Pharrell, Pantone Color decided to debut a brand-new color inspired by by the Minions. Pantone described the appropriately dubbed “Minion Yellow” as “an illuminating, energetic, friendly and fun-loving yellow shade that immediately calls out to you.”
