Since July 2009, three different teaser trailers have been released for Illumination Entertainment‘s computer animated feature Despicable Me (you can see them here: one, two, three). Each one is a little bit more confusing then the last, none of them showing what the movie is actually about.
Well, today Universal Pictures finally decided to do the full reveal, releasing a two minute and 42-second full length trailer which gives you a better look at the characters, story, and comedy of the upcoming film. I’m really digging the production and character design. Watch the movie trailer now, embedded after the jump. As always, leave your thoughts in the comments below.
In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden deep beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by an army of tireless, little yellow minions, we discover Gru (Steve Carell), planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon (Yes, the moon!) in Universal?s new 3-D CGI feature, Despicable Me.
Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad.
One of the world’s greatest super-villains has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.
Despicable Me hits theaters on July 9th 2010.
