New ‘Minions’ Movie Trailer Is a Blast, Sandra Bullock Revealed as Villain

So now we know that Sandra Bullock will play the villain in Minions. Let’s see how she compares to Steve Carrell, who played the villain in the forerunners to this film, Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2. But Steve Carell has since found success in more serious roles.

The Minions are looking cuter than ever. Though the villain Gru and his 3 daughters will be missed, the Minions were the coolest things about those movies anyway. Minions will be an origin story about where the Minions came from and their history. And hopefully they’ll give us a clue as to what language is native to the Minions, since they tend to use a confusing variety of words from many languages.

Besides Sandra Bullock and Jon Hamm, the film has Michael Keaton, Allison Janney, and Steve Coogan in roles that have not yet been disclosed. The 3 star Minions of the film are all voiced in funny, squeally voices by one of the film’s directors, Pierre Coffin. Expect to catch it in theaters this July.
