THE ROCK FATHER’s 2015 Movie Preview showcases select titles heading to theaters this year, as provided to us by studio representatives. 

MINIONS is the prequel to the DESPICABLE ME franchise, and a prime example of giving the audience what they want – more Minions! Set for release this summer, I have a slight connection to this world through helping MEGA Bloks launch their new line of DESPICABLE ME/MINIONS building sets. More on that very soon. Check out the film profile and trailer below!

MINIONSMINIONS (2015)

Theatrical Release Date: July 10, 2015
MPAA Rating: TBD
Director: Pierre Coffin & Kyle Balda
Written By: Bryan Lynch
Cast:   Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Steve Coogan, Allison Janney
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.  Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without someone 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 a thrilling journey 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.
