Steve Carell, Taraji P. Henson, & More Step Out for 'Minions: The Rise of Gru' Premiere

The stars of Minions: The Rise of Gru are stepping out for the premiere of their new movie!

Steve Carell, Taraji P. Henson, and Michelle Yeoh hit the yellow carpet for the premiere of the new Despicable Me franchise movie on Saturday (June 25) at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, Calif.

Fellow cast members in attendance included Danny Trejo and Dolph Lundgren.

In the latest release in the Despicable Me franchise, Minions: The Rise of Gru centers on a pre-teen Gru who is plotting to take over the world from his basement, and it’s not going particularly well.

When Gru crosses paths with the Minions, they build their first lair, design their first weapons, and strive to execute their first missions, and when the Vicious 6 oust their leader, legendary fighter Wild Knuckles, Gru sets out to join the group.

Minions: The Rise of Gru will be out in theaters on July 1 – watch the latest trailer here!

FYI: Taraji is wearing a dress by The Attico.
