June 6 (UPI) -- The third official trailer released Monday for Minions: The Rise of Gru shows the minions brazenly taking over a hilarious and wild commercial flight.
The minions boldly take over the cockpit, making gibberish and silly announcements to the passengers, and the minion flight attendant sparingly gives out peanuts, before the flight speeds off the runway, then points straight upward in a shocking turn.
The studio Illumination's third trailer for the Despicable Me spinoff film. featuring Steve Carell as the voice of Gru, also showed Gru as a 12-year-old boy, and other adventures.
In 1970s suburbia, the 12-year-old Gru is "plotting to take over the world from his basement," but wants to become a "super villain," according to the studio's film synopsis.

"With Gru on the run, the Minions attempt to master the art of kung fu to help save him, and Gru discovers that even bad guys need a little help from their friends," the official synopsis reads.
