What the earlier Despicable Me 2 teaser trailers lacked in information, they made up for in cuteness. The puffy yellow minions were all over those, performing “Barbara Ann” and investigating otherworldly visitors. Now a full-length trailer has arrived, and while it’s not quite as adorable (that’s just what happens when you shift focus away from the minions), it tells us far more about what this movie actually is.
Steve Carell is back as the voice of supervillain Gru, who’s recruited by the Anti-Villain League to help defeat a powerful new baddie. Al Pacino, Kristen Wiig, Miranda Cosgrove, Steve Coogan, Russell Brand, and Ken Jeong also lend their voices. Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud return as directors. Check out the new trailer and poster after the jump.

In July we posted the teaser trailer for Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me. And while the computer animated film is supposedly about a trio of orphan girls cause the normally deplorable Gru to rethink his plan to steal the moon, the trailer focused on something else entirely: a world which has had famous landmarks stolen and completely replaced by giant blow-up replicas. The main character of the movie – Gru, who is voiced by Steve Carell, made a little more than a cameo appearance. It wasn’t even clear if the footage or characters from the trailer was even part of the movie at all.
Last month they released a second teaser trailer which focused more on the world’s #2 super-villain character Gru, and his attempts to break into a secret lair of the world’s #1 super-villain Vector. Today a third teaser trailer dropped, and I’m more confused than ever. What is this movie about again? A studio press release informs me that the creates in the trailer (and pictured on the movie poster, seen after the jump) 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!
Hardworking and devoted to their leader and his mad exploits, the Minions are content to serve as his crash test dummies along the way. After all, Gru is planning the biggest heist in the history of the world…to steal the moon!
The voice cast line-up is pretty impressive, with a handful of Judd Apatow regulars with a couple nice surprises: Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Kristen Wiig, Will Arnett, Danny McBride, Jemaine Clement, Miranda Cosgrove and Julie Andrews. However, you don’t really get to hear any of these voices in action in the new trailer. Watch the trailer after the jump, and leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Earlier today I posted a complete listing of all the major 3D movie releases being developed for the next 4 years. One of the films was Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me, a computer animated film about a trio of orphan girls cause the normally deplorable Gru to rethink his plan to steal the moon.
I kind of like the stylized character design. The voice cast line-up is pretty nice, with a handful of Judd Apatow regulars with a couple nice surprises: Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Kristen Wiig, Will Arnett, Danny McBride, Jemaine Clement, Miranda Cosgrove and Julie Andrews. However, I’m not that impressed with the plot of the film, an unfortunately the two and a half minute trailer doesn’t even really show the film’s despicable main character Gru. Watch the trailer after the jump, and leave your thoughts in the comments below.
