Steve Carell‘s lovable super-villain Gru makes a return this summer and by the looks of the brand new trailer for Despicable Me 2, it’s going to be a bigger, starrier event than the original. It finds Carell’s reformed bad-guy-turned-father-of-the-year recruited into an organization of good guys led by Kristen Wiig and an old, posh, stuffy Steve Coogan.
Though the trailer doesn’t show any footage of Gru’s new nemesis, it’s been confirmed that he will be voiced by Al Pacino. So, if anything, you can expect a lot of evil vocal histrionics! HOO-HA!
The most promising aspect of the trailer is its funky 60s spy movie style. It seems that the makers of DM2 have taken a page out of Pixar’s playbook for The Incredibles. And that’s no bad thing: expect more gadgets, more adorable Minion antics and also a plenty more action.
