New trailer for Despicable Me 2 starring Steve Carrell, Kristin Wiig, and Al Pacino has plenty of minions

03.19.2013

Gru and crew are back! Today, we have a new trailer for DESPICABLE ME 2, which brings back Steve Carrell as the not-so-villainous lead who is constantly conflicted with his evil intentions, especially with three daughters and an army of yellow, pill-shaped minions (who will be getting their own feature next) in tow who constantly appeal to his better side.  The second adventure brings in a host of new co-stars, including Kristen Wiig, Miranda Cosgrove, Russell Brand, Steve Coogan, and Al Pacino

I enjoyed the first one for the most part and would happily partake in a sequel, especially after suffering through ESCAPE FROM PLANET EARTH recently.  Say what you will about the goofiness of it all, but the first film was leagues beyond a lot of the kids shlock we have to endure on a regular basis. 

Take a look:

This looks like a decent follow up and something I could take my kid to and not feel like opening a vein halfway through.  For parents that can be a hell of a win.  Plus, as simple and generic as they may be, those damn minions are f*cking adorable.  I'd be happy to have one clean my house and wash my car and...okay, maybe I just need a maid service.  But still.  F*cking adorable.

DESPICABLE ME 2 hits theaters on July 3, 2013.

Minion Mania!

The Minions absolutely, positively, are the best things about the first one, and they look like they're stealing this film too. I remember going to see this one because there wasn't much else out at the time, and I laughed hysterically. The ' cute little orphans save the Big Bad' was cliche, but the interaction between those characters and the Minions was priceless. Especially the Minion set who decided to become a Nuclear Family and have stayed that way, apparently. I'm sitting here giggling

BRING'EM ON...I have a ' Minion Of The Month' poster hanging in my bands practice space. ....I'm going back and watch this one again.

I want to see/hear Al Pacino's villain. I enjoyed the first film, I think it was fresh and different enough from the kid-aimed animated movie crop. The thing is it will be easy to end up pandering with the Minions. The main reason I'm against a solely minion-based film is that they're called "minions" - an army of fools isn't much without the king of fools to lead the way. They need to have Gru in charge. My favourite thing about the first film was the casting of Julie Andrews as Gru's

Kristen Wiig Is Returning... not new.

Not that it matters, but Wiig was in the first film too.
Nonetheless, just watched this trailer with my 4 year old and she was laughing hysterically. Looks like we're going to this one b

Along with Megamind, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs & How To Train Your Dragon, Despicable Me is one of the movies I will more than happily sit through with my kids. Love those minions.
