Sandra Bullock provides the voice of a super-villain named Scarlet Overkill in the Despicable Me spin-off, Minions. Set 42 years B.G. (Before Gru), the Minions movie tells the story of the goofy yellow guys’ search for a super-villain to work for. The new trailer finds the minions heading to Orlando, Florida to check out Villain Con where they meet – and go home with – Scarlet Overkill.

Minions is opening in theaters on July 10, 2015.

The Plot:

The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters—from T. Rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression.

But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he—alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob—ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow.

The trio embarks upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Bullock), the world’s first-ever female super-villain. They travel from frigid Antarctica to 1960s New York City, ending in mod London, where they must face their biggest challenge to date: saving all of Minionkind…from annihilation.
