Honourable Mention: Minions

Minions seem rather popular but, as I haven’t watched the Despicable Me films I am absolutely behind the curve. That said I knew that I would have to, at some point, do an Honourable Mention of their first feature, which was directed by Kyle Balda and Pierre Coffin, and released in 2015.

The opening of the film gives a potted history of the yellow chaps and their quest to serve the most despicable being alive and, at one point we get them serving a vampire in the Dark Ages (described as partying all night and sleeping all day). Celebrating his 357th birthday, they bring a cake and banner, wake him from his slumber, open the curtains and…

and... dust

And that is that, probably less than a minute of appearance but enough to get a mention here.

The imdb page is here.
