Despicable Me

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.

International Despicable Me Teaser Trailer

Despicable Me

The last teaser trailer for Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s upcoming computer animated film Despicable Me had a lot of people scratching their heads. Who are these little yellow guys with glasses, gloves and blue overalls, and what do they have to do with a film about an evil villain who is plotting to steal the moon? One of the many things I learned during my visit to Illumination Entertainment’s Santa Monica-based offices is that the moo cow trailer was originally supposed to be the initial teaser trailer, which might have made a lot more sense.

Yes, these yellow creatures are part of Gru’s army of not-so-bright Minions which help him carry out his diabolical plans (unless of course, they get their hands on a Moo Cow Toy). A new international teaser trailer has been released on Times Online which further explains their role in the story. Watch it now, embedded after the jump.

Despicable Me

Last week, I journeyed to Santa Monica to visit the offices of Illumination Entertainment. Started by Christopher Meledandri, the producer behind Opportunity Knocks and Cool Runnings, who helped acquire and oversee Blue Sky Studios, the computer animation studio which produced the Ice Age series and Robots. Meledandri produced Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who, The Simpsons Movie and The Fantastic Mr. Fox before jumping ship to form a new company, Illumination Entertainment. You probably haven’t heard of them yet, as they have yet to release a film, but they are hard at work developing projects for computer animated, live-action and they even claim to have a stop-motion animated project that is on the verge of being announced. The plan is to do an average of two films a year for Universal, over the next five years. Their first film to hit the big screen will be Despicable Me, which is the reason for my visit.

A small group of press, including myself, were invited to Illumination Entertainment to talk to Meledandri about this new company, his upcoming projects (which include another Seuss adaptation The Lorax as well as the Russell Brand Easter-themed family comedy I Hop), and to visit the editing bay of Despicable Me to see some early footage from the film put together.

After the jump you can read my report, or watch the video blog which I recorded with Steve from Collider.com immediately following the visit. Most of which I’m going to say below is in the video blog, but I should also point out that I’ve included a transcript of our roundtable conversation with Meledandri below as well. Anyone interested in reading more about this emerging new animation company will want to check that out. I really do think that Illumination will be a company to watch in the coming years.

Despicable Me

Universal Pictures has announced that three-time Grammy Award winner Pharrell Williams will write original music for Despicable Me. This marks the first time Pharrell has composed music for a film. Oscar winner Hans Zimmer and Heitor Pereira are writing the film’s score. This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise as the catchy song at the end of the original teaser trailer was an original composition by Pharrell with MeOh!My. You can listen to the whole 4 minute version of that song embedded after the jump, followed by the official press release.
