Universal Pictures just sent us the "Minion of the Month" to promote their upcoming 3D CGI-animated film, Despicable Me. I guess I'm going to get one of these once a month until the movie comes out in July. Cool - more stuff to post! You can also go to the movie's website and check out some games and other activities like Minion "Break In" (similar to Brick Breaker), Create A Minion, and Tic Tac Takeover (a version of Tic Tac Toe). After the jump, you can check out the entire picture of our first minion, Bring It Brenda.
In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden deep beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by an army of tireless, little yellow minions, we discover Gru planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon (Yes, the moon)! Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. One of the world's greatest super-villains has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.
Despicable Me was directed by Chris Renaud and Pierre Coffin. It stars the voices of Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Will Arnett, Kristen Wiig, Danny McBride, and Julie Andrews.
The film hits theaters on July 9th.
