The brand new Minions movie The Rise of Gru takes a look at the lovable villain as a child growing up and trying to perfect his craft as a villain with some resistance from the (super)powers that be.

So, Gru takes aim at the villains to prove his worth as the 1970’s bad guys give chase to recover a powerful stone that young Gru steals from them. However, his Minions trade the valuable stone for a pet rock.

The new movie opens in the summer and features the voice talent of Steve Carell and Russell Brand.
