LOS ANGELES, Nov. 3 (UPI) -- Universal Pictures on Monday released the first full-length trailer for a movie featuring everyone's favorite villain sidekicks, the Minions.

The Despicable Me spinoff goes back -- way back -- to the time of dinosaurs, when the minions first started their careers assisting the world's most evil villains.

"Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters," the official film synopsis says.

"Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters -- from T. rex to Napoleon -- the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression. But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he -- alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob -- ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow."

The three minions arrive in New York City in the 1960s and find the world's first female super-villain -- voiced by Sandra Bullock -- to serve.

The film also features the voice work of Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Steve Coogan and Allison Janney.
