‘Despicable Me’ was a box office smash, earning £358 million worldwide, and its sequel was Universal’s most profitable film – ever. I mean, come on: cute little orphans, heart-warming story line and a villain you can’t help but fall in love with. It ticks all the boxes.
However, there’s one character, or rather a whole bunch of them, that completely stole the show: Despicable Me’s Minion.
With their trademark goggles, dungarees and sheer yellowness, these guys have found their way onto T-shirts, Halloween costumes, phone covers – and now, these cute little guys have got their own movie.
Coming to cinemas summer 2015, the Minions are on their own, before they ever met Gru, and in search of a big, bad boss to serve. Unfortunately though, they seem to keep…well, getting him killed. Dinosaur burnt up lava, Dracula torched in the sun, Napoleon blown sky high by a cannon: these guys just can’t seem to get it right. How on earth did Gru survive so long?
