Since the dawn of time, the Minions have been desperately looking for a master. From dinosaurs, to cave men, to Dracula, to Napoleon, the Minions have sought out the biggest and best of masters from around the world. The trouble is, their optimism and perseverance - while commendable - is nothing compared to their utter ineptitude. The Minions have a terrible problem with either killing their boss, or letting their bosses die in some way. But with the 1960s in full swing and the Minions currently unemployed, they travel to a villain convention to find a new master, and uncover a conspiracy to steal the crown from the Queen of England.

The Oscar winning actress has topped the magazine’s annual list.
People has named Sandra Bullock the world’s most beautiful woman for 2015, the magazine announced on NBC's 'Today' show. Gracing the magazine's May cover, the 50 year old actress said she thought “that's ridiculous” upon hearing of the honour, adding that she’d so far told no one.
Sandra Bullock is People’s most beautiful woman for 2015.
"Real beauty is quiet. Especially in this town, it's just so hard not to say, 'Oh, I need to look like that,' " Bullock explained to the mag. ”No, be a good person, be a good mom, do a good job with the lunch, let someone cut in front of you who looks like they're in a bigger hurry. The people I find most beautiful are the ones who aren't trying."

She may not be up for an Oscar this year, but Jennifer Aniston was awarded the Montecito Award at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, which is currently running in California. She looked sleek and starry as she accepted the award.
It's a wonder why the prehistoric tribe of Minions have managed to survive so long with limited access to their staple diet of bananas and very little in the way of intelligence. But they make it their life's work to follow and serve the most despicable of villains in return for their care - though, as time goes on, it seems there are fewer and fewer baddies left in the world, ever decreasing down to the Minion's own ineptitudes. From dinosaurs to vampires, Minions have always been loyal to the evil they serve, but after each tragic and accidental death, they are forced to move on. Stuck in a tight spot with no master to serve, they find themselves bored and depressed; that is until head Minions Kevin, Stuart and Bob decide it's time to set out on an adventure. Through blizzards and mountains, never-ending fields and deadly oceans they travel until they reach New York in 1968. They hitchhike to Orlando's annual Villain-Con and it's there they find their new mistress, Scarlet Overkill, and their only hope of saving Minion-kind.

With the dramatic success of the 'Despicable Me' franchise, Universal Pictures has made the wait for 2017's 'Despicable Me 3' more bearable with a spin-off featuring everyone's favourite villain lackeys...
Since the continents were all combined as Pangaea, the Minions have existed and lived to serve a despicable master - or so says the trailer of 2015's 'Minions'. The spin-off from the highly popular 'Despicable Me' franchise focuses on the most iconic supporting characters of modern animation in a film of their own.
According the film, the Minions have existed for longer than mankind

The Minions are a prehistoric race with a love of bananas and not the biggest brains individually. Together, their life's mission is to serve the deadliest villain around - but they are not very good at keeping them safe. From the scariest dinosaurs, Egyptian kings, Napoleon and even vampires, Minions have been around to assist the world's tyrants with their dastardly deeds, but it wasn't long before they tragically ran out of baddies to aid. Bored, desolate and miserable, three Minions named Kevin, Stuart and Bob decide enough is enough and set out to find a new master. Trekking through freezing mountains, sprawling pastures and never-ending oceans, they finally arrive in 1968 New York - 42 years before they met their future partner Gru.

The Gravity star emerged as top of Hollywood's female earners, but just how did she reach this accolade?
The results of Forbes annual celebrity rich list are in and it is with a certain amount of surprise thatSandra Bullockwas the highest paid film star of the past year. Bullock raked in over $51 million (that just over £30 million) and it seems that the 50 year-old has made some very shrewd decisions over the past years over which films she attached her name to, and not all of them looked like sure-fire box-office smashes, on paper at least.
Sandra's box-office success has exerted a gravitational pull on all cash in her vicinity.
Gravity, directed by Alfonso Cuaron and also starring George Clooney, cost a whopping $100 million to produce thanks to its almost exclusive reliance on extensive special effects. Yet the film excelled with audiences and critics alike, scooping seven Oscars as well as a host of BAFTA’s. Bullock also duly received an Oscar nomination for her role as the astronaut caught in a potentially catastrophic disaster in Earth’s orbit. Gravity drew $716 million in global box-office takings, awarding Bullock and co-star Clooney a tidy sum for their efforts which included a gruelling shooting experience whereupon the leading duo were suspended from wires and trapped in claustrophobic space suits.

The 50 year-old actress earned $17 million more than her closest competitor.
Sandra Bullock's past year has been a success to say the least, and after starring in two blockbuster hits, the Academy Award-winning actress has topped Forbes' list of highest-paid Hollywood actresses from June 2013 to June 2014, earning a staggering $51 million.
Bullock is the highest earning actress from this past year
Bullock achieved this honour with two rather memorable roles from the last 12 months, with the first coming in the form of FBI Special Agent Sarah Ashburn in the smash hit comedy 'The Heat, which she stars alongside Melissa McCarthy as Detective Shannon Mullins.
Sandra Bullock's stalker allegedly had a notebook filled with pictures of the actress and writings suggesting he had been watching her house for days before he broke into her Hollywood home. Bullock was awoken on 8th June to discover a man outside her bedroom door and recently obtained documents show the extent of Joshua Corbett's obsession with the 'Gravity' actress.
A series of search warrants obtained by a US entertainment website detail the terrifying encounter actress Sandra Bullock endured when a stalker broke into her house at the beginning of June.

Bullock's terrifying encounter was revealed in detail this week.
When Sandra Bullock’s home was invaded last month, the star had a narrow brush, but stayed safe by locking herself in the bedroom. It turns out that she came closer to danger than we thought – definitely too close for comfort, as she was separated from her alleged stalker by just one door.
Bullock allegedly came face to face with her crazed fan.
There is more to the story. Plenty of chilling details of Bullock’s encounter have been outlined in the police’s search warrant, recently obtained by TMZ. According to Bullock’s account, on the night of the encounter, at around 1AM, she heard a noise coming from inside the house. Doing the sensible thing, the actress went over to close and lock the bedroom door. Which she did, but not before she saw her stalker, identified as 34-year-old Joshua Corbett, standing in the hallway in his dark getup.
Sandra Bullock's intruder may be suffering from severe mental health problems.
Joshua Corbett, the man accused of breaking into Sandra Bullock’s Los Angeles home has pleaded not guilty to charges he possessed a stockpile of weapons and his lawyer insisted that he suffers from serious mental health problems and had no intention of harming the Oscar-winning actress, according to TMZ.com.
Sandra Bullock's intruder had a stockple of weapons
The 39-year-old pleaded not guilty to charges of burglary, stalking and possession of a machine gun following his arrest last week but now faces 19 additional charges after a weapons cache was discovered at his home. He faces up to seven years and four months in prison if convicted of the three original counts but could face a sentence of up to 12 years should he be found guilty of the latest charges.
A whole arsenal of guns has reportedly been found at Corbett's home.
The case of Sandra Bullock’s alleged stalker is getting increasingly complicated and very, very scary. The man, who stands accused of breaking into Bullock’s home earlier this month has been found to possess “an arsenal of weapons”, including seveal illegal machine guns.
At the time, Bullock locked herself in a room in the home and waited for the police.
Joshua James Corbett, 39, was arrested after being found at the Oscar-winning actress's home in Los Angeles on June 8 while she was also there. At the time, Bullock hid in one of the rooms in the house, locked herself in and waited for the police to arrive after her 911 call.
Sandra Bullock isn’t the first celeb to have crazed fans sneaking around her house
Oscar-winning Hollywood actress Sandra Bullock has just recently discovered how far some fans will go to come into contact with their idols as a man broke into her Beverly Hills home in the early hours on Tuesday. Since being arrested, the man who has been identified as Joshua Corbett who is aged 39 and resides in the San Fernando valley, Los Angeles.
A man broke into Bullock's Beverly Hills home while she was inside.
Despite the apparent exclusivity and subsequent security that Beverly Hills affords inhabitants, Bullock’s run-in with the obsessive fan proves that they will often go to ridiculous measures in order to gain recognition from the subject of their adoration. It also presents a worrying security concern as a lapse in mental health often fuels these celebrity obsessions. Most famously, John Hinckley Jr’s assassination attempt on then President, Ronald Raegan, was seen by Hinckley as a way of courting the attention of actress Jodie Foster. But to have a fan invade one’s personal space and most intimate of dwellings is a unsettling notion for most people, never mind those of the celebrity calibre. Here are a selection of unfortunate celebs who’ve been subject to break-ins, robberies and warped fans who got a little too close for comfort.
The 49 year-old actress jokingly played along with the speculation that she is dating the 'Captain America' star: "We've since married and it started breaking apart, so we separated."

Gravity won the Golden Trailer award for Trailer of the Year.
The trailer, entitled Detached, depicts Sandra Bullock and George floating through space, before Bullock crucially loses hold of a life line whilst on a mission outside the space station. The trailer, much like the film, appears to be wonderfully simplistic with the action taking place entirely in space. However, it's certainly a breath-taking trailer with the drama evidently playing out between Sandra Bullock's and George Clooney's characters.

Claiming that the clip "redefines entire movie," the fan-edited footage takes a closer look at how Sandra Bullock's character could have been saved (sooner) and what the object that smashed her little workstation and sent her spinning into space may have really been.

Everyone has seen that haunting/touching spin-off Inuit fisherman Aningaaq scene, directed by Cuarón's son Jonas, but this new "alternate scene" is about to blow your mind with the possibilities of the movie's other 'secrets.'

The official Academy Awards after party was a glamorous affair.
The Governor's Ball once again played host to the biggest names in filmmaking this year as Oscar winners, nominees and guests filled the glamorous after party with celebration.

On a remarkable night at the BAFTAs, some remarkable performances were overlooked.
The Baftas delivered on certain promises, collating some of the world’s biggest stars and funneling them down a red carpet, giving a select few the chance to present an award, and, creating talking points as the perennial battle between who should have won and who did win continued to flare.
Chiwetel Ejiofor and Michael Fassbender in 12 Years a Slave
Gravity was the night’s big success story as it was when it debuted at Venice all those months ago. The case for the film’s British credentials were never in doubt – BAFTA awards home soil movies and, given that the space thriller’s special effects were delivered by a British team in England, Gravity’s passport is a U.K one.
But that doesn’t necessarily mean the coveted Best Director nod should have gone Alfonso Cuaron’s way. Despite the pure, exhilarating brand of entertainment delivered – almost old-school Hollywood – it’s hard to look past Steve McQueen for his work on 12 Years a Slave when looking for someone more deserved of individual recognition.
Yes, 12 Years reeled in two magnificent awards: that of Best Actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor and Best Film. Despite these high-profile gongs, though, there were other categories in which the slave drama missed out on, and almost certainly didn’t deserve to.
The supporting actor categories leap out as key pieces of evidence in the case of 12 Years a Slave. Barkhad Abdhi’s ascension this past 12 months has been a joy to watch, and his performance in Captain Phillips was touching and terrifying in equal measure. But he wasn’t better than Michael Fassbender as Edwin Epps – the evil plantation owner with a scary infatuation with Patsy, played majestically by Lupita Nyong’o.
And, like a seasoned radio professional, that neat segway leads me on to the Best Supporting Actress win for Jennifer Lawrence, which was – despite her current popularity and GIF-worthyness – a ridiculous decision. To put her role in American Hustle above Nyong’o’s in 12 Years was a travesty; to put it above newcomer Nyong’o and Sally Hawkins’ turn in Blue Jasmine is nothing short of wrong.
