A first trailer for Minions sequel Minions 2: The Rise Of Gru has debuted. Click below to watch it:
Minions offered up an origin story as to how the adorable yellow stars of the Despicable Me franchise came into being. It made over a billion at the box office and now a sequel comes, this time telling how they met their master Gru.
Set in the 1970s, we meet Gru as he applies to join super-villain collective the Vicious 6, who have just ousted their leader, legendary fighter Wild Knuckles.
He fails, but things quickly get worse after Gru outsmarts the group and suddenly finds himself the mortal enemy of the apex of evil. Now he's on the run, with the minions for company...
Steve Carrell returns to voice Gru, with Taraji P. Henson, Michelle Yeoh, RZA, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Lucy Lawless, Dolph Lundgren, Danny Trejo, Russell Brand, Julie Andrews and Alan Arkin also in the voice cast.
Kyle Balda, Brad Ableson and Jonathan del Val direct, working from a script from Brian Lynch.
Minions 2: The Rise Of Gru will be released into UK cinemas on July 10th.
