A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Villain Con – A Clip From Minions

One of the funniest things from Despicable Me films have been the Minions, and now the little fellows are getting a prequel movie of their own… which shocks me a little because I thought Gru created them.

Minions are yellow henchmen, who have existed since the beginning of beginning, evolving from a yellow single-cell organisms into beings who have only one purpose: to serve the most ambitious villains. After their masters were destroyed, they decide to isolate themselves from the world and start a new life in Antarctica. Sometime in the 60s, the lack of a master drives them into depression, so bravest 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.

Minions invade theaters July 10th.
