Minions: The Movie

Minions: The Movie – Minions: Le Film

Minions is a 2015 American 3D computer-animated comedy film, serving as a spin-off/prequel to the Despicable Me franchise. Produced by Illumination Entertainment for Universal Pictures, it was directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, written by Brian Lynch, and produced by Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy. The film stars the voices of Coffin (as the Minions, including: Kevin, Stuart and Bob), Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Allison Janney, Steve Coogan, and Jennifer Saunders with the narration provided by Geoffrey Rush. It was first foreshadowed in the end credits of Despicable Me 2 (2013), where Kevin, Stuart, and Bob, three of the Minions, are seen auditioning for the film. Minions had its premiere on June 11, 2015, in Leicester Square, London, and went into general release in the United States on July 10, 2015. Critical response was mixed: some critics praised the comedic aspects of the film and the performances of Bullock and Hamm, while also felt that the title characters were not able to carry the film on their own, and that the villains were flatly characterized. The film has grossed over $1.1 billion worldwide (outgrossing each of the Despicable Me films), making it the 11th highest-grossing film of all time, the 2nd highest-grossing animated film, and the highest-grossing non-Disney animated film. A sequel is announced to be released on July 3, 2020.

Les Minions est un film d’animation américain réalisé par Kyle Balda et Pierre Coffin, sorti en 2015. Il s’agit d’un film dérivé et d’une préquelle de la saga Moi, moche et méchant. A l’origine de simples organismes monocellulaires de couleur jaune, les Minions ont évolué au cours des âges au service de maîtres plus abjectes les uns que les autres. Les disparitions répétitives de ceux-ci, des tyrannosaures à Napoléon, ont plongé les Minions dans une profonde dépression. Mais l’un d’eux, prénommé Kevin, a une idée. Flanqué de Stuart, l’adolescent rebelle et de l’adorable petit Bob, Kevin part à la recherche d’un nouveau patron malfaisant pour guider les siens. Nos trois Minions se lancent dans un palpitant voyage qui va les conduire à leur nouveau maître : Scarlet Overkill, la première superméchante de l’histoire. De l’Antarctique au New York des années 60, nos trois compères arrivent finalement à Londres, où ils vont devoir faire face à la plus terrible menace de leur existence : l’annihilation de leur espèce.
