Hold on to your hard hats people as the new trailer for Universal Pictures & Illumination Entertainment's Minions feature has dropped onto the web!

Taking place in the swinging sixties and without a great evil leader to follow, three daredevil Minions - Kevin, Stuart and Bob set out on an epic journey to discover a new dastardly master!

The adventure will see the Minions cover America, Antarctica and London, England in order to find the world's first female supervillain Scarlett Overkill (Sandra Bullock) and drag their Minionkind out of their deep depression and the prospect of total annihilation.

Lets have a wee look, shall we?

Has that tickled your fancy? Have you even watched it at least? Aah I see, you just wanted a -

Setting The Scene

The opening scenes set up a nice little joke regarding hitchhiking into the big city...

The Big Time

...then the Minions get picked up by a family on their way to Villain-Con...

...then some easy exposition leads them to the glory of...

Scarlett Overkill

So bad her name must appear twice.

Who lets the Minions know that if they work for her, all of their dreams will come true...

...which leads to the Minions being told a devilish bedtime story by the queen of villains...

...which you'll have to watch because it's pretty cool and I don't want to give away!

All in all, I'm thinking Minions is shaping up to be one of this summer's sleeper hits.
