"The movie business is macabre. Grotesque.
It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."
-- Federico Fellini

photo for Minions The breakout stars from the “Despicable Me” franchise headline their own movie. The story of Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolved through the ages, perpetually serving (and accidentally eliminating) 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 embark upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (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.
