The new Minions movie arrives this summer – and here’s the trailer.

If you’re looking to pinpoint what the biggest films of the year will be, then save some of the smart money for this one. Minions: The Rise Of Gru is heading to cinemas this summer, and given that the first standalone Minions film cleared $1bn worldwide, don’t be surprised if this repeats the trick.

This time, the voice cast – as well as featuring Steve Carell – has added the likes of Michelle Yeoh, Taraji P Henson, Danny Trejo, Julie Andrews, Dolph Lundgren, Lucy Lawless and Alan Arkin. Kyle Balda directs, alongside co-directors Brad Ableson and Jonathan Del Val. And we now have a first trailer for the movie.

Here’s a glimpse as to what lies ahead…

And the synopsis too…

This summer, from the biggest animated franchise in history and global cultural phenomenon, comes the untold story of one 12-year-old’s dream to become the world’s greatest supervillain, in Minions: The Rise of Gru.

In the heart of the 1970s, amid a flurry of feathered hair and flared jeans, Gru (Oscar® nominee 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.

The movie lands on July 10th 2020.
