Illumination has released a full trailer for the next Minions movie, The new upcoming film is called Minions: The Rise of Gru. This movie will tell the untold story of Gru when he was just 12 years old who has a dream to become the world’s most famous supervillain. If you’re a fan of these movies, then you’ll probably love what this next movie has to offer.
The story is based in the 1970s, and this is the synopsis:
“Amid a flurry of feathered hair and flared jeans, Gru (Steve Carell) is growing up in the suburbs. A fanboy of a supervillain supergroup known as the Vicious 6, Gru hatches a plan to become evil enough to join them. Luckily, he gets some mayhem-making backup from his loyal followers, the Minions. Together, Kevin, Stuart, Bob, and Otto—a new Minion sporting braces and a desperate need to please—deploy their skills as they and Gru build their first lair, experiment with their first weapons and pull off their first missions.
When the Vicious 6 oust their leader, legendary fighter Wild Knuckles (Oscar® winner Alan Arkin), Gru interviews to become their newest member. It doesn’t go well (to say the least), and only gets worse after Gru outsmarts them and suddenly finds himself the mortal enemy of the apex of evil. On the run, Gru will turn to an unlikely source for guidance, Wild Knuckles himself, and discover that even bad guys need a little help from their friends.
Teeming with Illumination’s signature subversive humor, pop-culture sophistication, full-hearted emotion, bold music sensibility, and over-the-top action,
Minions: The Rise of Gru has a brilliant voice cast. As members of the Vicious 6, there is Taraji P. Henson as cool and confident leader Belle Bottom, Jean-Claude Van Damme as Jean Clawed, Lucy Lawless as Nunchuck, Dolph Lundgren as Svengeance, and Danny Trejo as Stronghold. The film also features Russell Brand as Dr. Nefario, an ambitious mad scientist, Michelle Yeoh as Master Chow, an acupuncturist with mad Kung Fu skills, and Julie Andrews as Gru’s self-absorbed mom.
The movie also comes with the voice of Pierre Coffin as the Minions and a “killer ʼ70s soundtrack courtesy of Grammy-winning music producer Jack Antonoff.”
The film is directed by returning franchise filmmaker Kyle Balda (Despicable Me 3, Minions) The movie hits theaters on July 3rd.
