Plot:
“Minions are yellow henchmen who have existed since the beginning of time, evolving from yellow single-celled organisms into beings who have only one purpose: to serve history’s most ambitious villains.

After accidentally destroying all their masters, including a T. Rex, Genghis Khan, Dracula, and Napoleon, they decide to isolate themselves from the world and start a new life in Antarctica. Sometime in the 1960s, the lack of a master drives them into depression, so Kevin comes up with a plan to find a new one.

Joined by teenage rebel Stuart and little Bob, they arrive at a villain convention, where they compete for the right to be henchmen for Scarlet Overkill, a stylish and ambitious villain determined to dominate the world and become the first female super-villain.

Travelling through New York City, they end in London, where they must confront a threat that wants to eliminate all Minions.”

Minions is scheduled to be released on July 10, 2015.
