First poster for Despicable Me spin-off, Minons

Despicable Me 3 is on the way - but before that, we get the Minions spin-off...

For all the talk of Star Wars, Avengers 2 and such like, we'd argue that Minions is the box office juggernaut to watch out for in 2015. With Despicable Me 2 taking nearly $1bn at the global box office, primarily powered by the little yellow critters, Universal and Illumination Entertainment will expect that barrier to be broken come the release of the Minions spin-off.

The film is due in cinemas next July, with Despicable Me 3 already scheduled after that. And a first teaser poster has been released to confirm that release date. We're likely to get a first teaser trailer at some point over the summer, we'd imagine.

For now? Here's that poster...

Well my niece for starters, loves "Da Mignions"!

Just FYI, you probably want to fix that typo in the header ;)

Personally, I can't understand why we've had a sequel to (in my view) a mediocre at best movie and are now getting a spin off featuring the most annoying "comic relief" since Jar Jar Binks. And also another sequel.

And yet, everyone seems to have forgotten Megamind, which I thought was a far superior movie.

The header typo is kinda glaring, might wanna get on that quick smart.

My boys are crazy about these buggers. I have to say, they're really well-developed comedy sidekicks, and having now seen Despicable Me 1 and 2 about 5,000 times, I love 'em too! :D Tip: The DVD of the first film has 3 or 4 short Minion cartoons on it as a bonus, which are hysterical too.

I'm having flashbacks to early French classes.
"...nous minons, vous minez, ils minent."

Flog 'em, flog those minions for all the money they're worth!

Megamind was great. But the answer is simple.

Orphans. Little yellow orphans.

Oh and 3 little orphan girls.

Yeah my kids love em. I tolerate em for my kids, though sometimes I laugh right along with my kids. My wife loves em too. Why can't Gru and Megamind team up already?

The minions are a very smart (and lucrative) creation. They're all cheeky, silly 4 year olds, except they're invincible and can get up to any mischief imaginable, and they come in an absolutely infinite variety.
That they talk nonsense, like Mr Bean, is a clever stroke.

I find them funny - but for a whole movie? Not sure about that.

The poster looks like 'minions in the city', doesn't it?
