‘Minions’ meet ‘Godzilla’ in new promo, pics Sandra Bullock’s villain

A new ad for Toho Cinemas sees the Minions of Despicable Me meet Godzilla in a new animated teaser, like the classic Bambi Meets Godzilla sneak, just months after the studio announced a new Toho Godzilla film for 2016.

The Minions have their own movie (with Sandra Bullock) coming in 2015, which deals with the creatures origins as they seek out and serve the most despicable master they can find. Academy Award winner Bullock will lead the voice cast of the human characters as Scarlett Overkill, the world’s reigning super-villain of the 1960s and Jon Hamm co-stars.

Godzilla 2, a follow up to the blockbuster reboot by director Gareth Edwards, is currently set for 2018 as Edwards is helming the first Star Wars standalone film, Rogue One. Several of the creatures from the classic Godzilla series (Rodan et al) are rumored, but nothing is confirmed.

Minions also stars Michael Keaton, Allison Janney, Katy Mixon, Loraine Newman, Hiroyuki Sanada, Steve Coogan, and Jennifer Saunders with Kyle Balda and Pierre Coffin directing.

Minions arrives in theaters on July 10, 2015.

Full synopsis:

The Minions, breakout stars from “Despicable Me,” are presented in an origin story that showcases their unpredictable personality and physicality, and pairs them with equally memorable human characters. As it turns out, Minions have existed since the beginning of time. They have evolved from single (yellow) cell organisms into the familiar beings we know, and they live for a collective purpose: to seek out and serve the most despicable master they can find. Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock will lead the voice cast of the human characters as Scarlett Overkill, the world’s reigning super-villain of the 1960s.
