Despicable Me 2 Trailer Looks Like Fun


The first one was an unexpected surprise – it had a terrible teaser, but the movie itself felt like the sort of thing a classic cartoon should be, like two polar opposite versions of Wile E. Coyote fighting each other while additional complications (fatherhood, goofy Minions) got thrown at them from the periphery.

Universal realized a bit late how marketable the Minion characters were, but now that they know full well, there was a danger they’d be the whole show here. Based on this new footage, though, it looks like things are well balanced, with Gru and his insane weapons and goofy-cute foster kids just as fun (the Minions are getting their own spin-off movie, after all).

Watch it after the jump and decide for yourself. I can tell it’ll look better in 3D, but it still works. And in yet more evidence that everything which once terrified parents eventually becomes kid-safe…yes, that’s an Eminem song. Still no indication of Al Pacino’s villain perfomance, so I guess that’s a big reveal they’re saving.
