Minions on my mind

A package from a well known Internet store arrived today and that got my mind thinking about an upcoming movie.

When I tell you the package had Despicable Me 2 in it, you should be able to work out the movie that I was wondering about.

Ok, I will assume that you haven’t got it yet. The answer is Minions! Yes, our little yellow friends are getting their own movie.  It was meant to be out next December but the distributor decided to hold it back until 2015. This sounds like a good idea as the summer release window tends to do a lot better than a Christmas one. This assumes that the film doesn’t have any Hobbits in them.

Millions of minions spring to mind

Im not 100% sure that this is the actual synopsis but it seems to be the most circulated one. It seems to be set before they move onto Gru

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 1960’s, 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.
