Despicable Me was quietly one of the best animated films of the past five years. Illumination Entertainment was put on the map with the original film’s success and now Gru’s back for another bout as our anti-hero.
A story about a maniacal villain turned good when he adopts three little girls was even better on screen and it looks like Gru’s time as “bad-guy-turned-good” isn’t over as he’s back to save the world, again.
Despicable Me 2 brings back Steve Carrell as “Gru” but also brings along Kristen Wiig, Al Pacino, Steve Coogan, Russell Brand, and Miranda Cosgrove.
Gru’s next adventure is out on July 3.
*as a sidenote, how great is Eminem’s “Without Me” laid over the trailer? Perfect choice.
