Scoff all you like that this teaser doesn’t clearly articulate a plot (and remember, the first Despicable Me teaser was really pretty unclear too). The creators of the insanely marketable Minions have made a movie about pets, and it will make millions. And I’m talking just from my wife.
Plus it stars Louis C.K. Man, I remember the days he couldn’t get anything made and the studio recut Pootie Tang without his consent. Now his voice is going to be in a bazillion talking toys, and I will probably own all of them…whether I want to or not.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
