Trailer of the Hour: Minions

If there’s one thing we don’t need more of, it’s animated sequels (Unless they begin with “Toy” and end with “4”.). And while Despicable Me 2 pointed to diminishing returns for Gru & co, Minions looks inspired, helped immensely by the undeniable cuteness and charisma of the titular little imps themselves. Not only that, this trailer functions as a short film in and of itself, with the feature-length movie as its sequel. The story that the minions exist solely to serve the most despicable thing they can find leads to some nice visual gags. I’m interested in where the story is going, which is exactly what a trailer is supposed to accomplish.
