Second Despicable Me Trailer is Still Despicable. Funnily So.

Apple has the second trailer for Steve Carel’s CG movie “Despicable Me”, in which Carel plays Gru, an evil supervillain who delights in terrorizing kids with balloon animals and other despicable-ish stuff. But there’s one problem: as evil as he is, Gru isn’t the most evil supervillain out there. That title belongs to Vector (Jason Segel), Gru’s archnemesis. Check out the second trailer for the movie. It’s not gut-busting funny, but seems like a good enough time at the movies.

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 beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru (voiced by 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. The world’s greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.

Featuring the voices of Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Will Arnett, Kristen Wiig, Danny Mcbride, Miranda Cosgrove, and directed by Chris Renaud and Pierre Coffin.
