Not that long ago the first trailer for The Minions Movie hit the interweb. It’s good. It’s also nice to see the back story of Kevin and the rest of the minions before they found their latest master, Gru, in 2010.

It does seem that the synopsis that has been going around for a while is actually correct
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 the history’s most ambitious villains. After their ineptitude destroys all their masters, including T. Rex and Dracula, 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 the Minion and two other volunteers set out to find a new one. 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.
