‘Minions’ Trailer

I have never been too into the Minions, those daffy pill-shaped things from Despicable Me and its sequel.  As you can tell from the picture, whatever the goal the animators were aiming for, any sort of realism wasn’t one of them.

That being said, what I find interesting is that, despite the fantastical nature of the Minions and their world, Egyptians look more accurate than they will probably be–considering that Joel Edgerton will be playing one (though Christian Bale playing Moses isn’t much better)–in Ridley Scott’s upcoming Exodus: Gods and Kings.
