A new teaser trailer for the spin-off film featuring Despicable Me‘s Minions has been released.

The promo clip will be shown during NBC’s coverage of the Super Bowl this Sunday (February 1), where 30-second advertising spots have been sold for an average $4.5 million (£3 million) each.

The Minions’ spin-off movie, simply titled Minions, will open in UK cinemas on June 26 this year before getting a US release a couple of weeks later on July 10. The plot sees minions Stuart, Kevin and Bob recruited as henchmen by a super-villain and her husband, voiced by Sandra Bullock and Jon Hamm, who are hatching a dastardly plan to take over the world. Steve Coogan, Michael Keaton and Allison Janney also lend their voices to the film.
