Today we have three brand new trailers for your viewing pleasure, for the Despicable Me spinoff Minions, Michael Fassbender-starring Western Slow West and Robert De Niro comedy The Intern.
First up is Minions, the highly anticipated prequel/spinoff to Illumination Entertainment’s monumentally successful Despicable Me franchise. It focuses on three of the gibberish-speaking yellow folk – hilariously named Stuart, Kevin and Bob – who, 70 years B.G. (Before Gru), are recruited by the diabolical villain Scarlett Overkill (Sandra Bullock) who plans to take over the world.
Check out the new trailer below, which gives us more of a look at the types of villains they tried to serve over the years:
Minions hits cinemas on June 26th.
Switching things up a fair bit, the next trailer we have is for the upcoming Michael Fassbender Western Slow West, which also stars Ben Mendelsohn, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Game of Thrones’ Rory McCann. The film follows a 16-year-old boy (McPhee) on a journey across 19th Century frontier America in search of the woman he loves, while accompanied by mysterious traveler Silas (Fassbender). It’s written and directed by the awesomely-named first-time feature director John Maclean.
I’m always up for a new Western, a genre that’s sadly few and far between these days. Have a look at the trailer below:
Slow West is set for UK release on June 26th.
Last up we have the first trailer for the new fashion-themed comedy The Intern (not to be confused with the terrible Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson Google comedy of a similar name), starring Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway. The plot follows 70-year-old widower Ben Whittaker (De Niro) has discovered that retirement isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Seizing an opportunity to get back in the game, he becomes a senior intern at an online fashion site, founded and run by Jules Ostin. It comes to us from rom-com stalwart Nancy Meyers (What Women Want, It’s Complicated).
Watch the trailer below:
The Intern is set for release on October 2nd.
