"Gru's back in the game with cool cars, gadgets and weapons!"
Promotion on Despicable Me 2 began over a year ago with the release of a short teaser trailer and escalated to more trailers and TV spots, most of which simply depicted the tiny, yellow Minions from the original, 2010's Despicable Me. Finally, a new trailer has arrived online that actually delves into the sequel's story, which sees Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) recruited to be a part of the Anti-Villain League in order to bring down his nemesis, the character voice by Al Pacino that has yet to be revealed (and does not appear in the trailer). Still, if the trailer proves anything, it's that if you liked the first Despicable Me, you'll probably like the second which is good news especially if you have kids, since they won't want to miss it.
Despicable Me 2 also features the voice talents of Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Miranda Cosgrove (iCarly) and Russell Brand (Arthur).
