For the Despicable Me fans out there, in addition to Despicable Me 2 which is due out soon, there's a side-quel coming, featuring the Minions as main characters. It's due for release in December of 2014. Linky Actually, it's a prequel. In it, we learn that the Minions have existed throughout all of recorded history, serving various super villains (and ending up destroying them via their clumsiness). The prequel is set in the 1960s where the Minions set about finding a new villain to work for (this is before they ever meet Gru of course). The villain will be played by Sandra Bullock. The minions film also has its own Twitter feed, @MinionsMovie banana?
