First Trailer for Minions Movie Released

The first official trailer for the Despicable Me spin-off movie, titled Minions, has been posted online, revealing that Gru’s rambunctious henchcreatures actually predated their master. In fact, they actually predated humans as they’re shown to already be at large and looking for someone in charge, during the age of the dinosaurs.

The trailer also shows that the Minions are naturally predisposed towards being underlings, as they’ve sought masters throughout the ages, even going so far as to work under a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Unfortunately, things don’t always go according to plan.

You can watch the trailer below:

Despicable Me Attractions Coming This Spring

Riding high on the momentum built up by Despicable Me (which in turn is riding on the momentum built by the massively popular Minions), Universal Studios Hollywood is preparing a brand new 3D Ultra-HD adventure ride called Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem, with target launch date stated to be this spring.

The Minions, who will be returning to the big screens via a spin-off movie, will also be featured in a new interactive play zone called Super Silly Fun Land.

Minions Take Over Manhattan on Monday

Minions Take Over Manhattan on Monday

Gru’s cute little yellow minions are arguably the best parts of the Despicable Me franchise, and what better to celebrate the debut of Despicable Me 2 on Digital HD (November 26) and Blu-Ray, than by having the Minions take over the 87th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade?

Well, it’s not exactly take over so much as they’re just going to be part of the celebrations doing what they do best: making people happy! Before the big day, they’ll also loiter around the city of Manhattan, sightseeing, shopping, and sampling goodies. If you find one of them, you may even get a photo op.

Below is a list of planned stops for Minion Monday in Manhattan:

Minions Movie Delayed


Sad news for fans of Gru’s cute, hilarious, and mischievous minions, because you won’t be able to watch their spin-off movie on December 19, 2014. Thankfully, it’s just a slight delay as the release has been pushed back to July 10, 2015. The change in schedules mean that Universal won’t have an animated feature for 2014, but it also means the Minions movie will be able to open in the same time frame occupied by Despicable Me 2 this year.
