After teasing its upcoming 3-D animated tale of supervillainy, Despicable Me, with three short trailers and some scattered images, Universal Pictures is now making an all-out promotional push for the movie.
In addition to debuting the first full-length trailer, Universal has also released a series of HD stills from the movie. And you can play a Despicable Me game on the official movie site, as well as download a free ringtone and phone apps. Here's the official synopsis:
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 deep beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by an army of tireless, little yellow minions, we discover Gru (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.
One of the world's greatest super-villains has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Dana Grier), and Agnes (Elsie Fisher).
Despicable Me also stars the voice talents of Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Kristen Wiig, Will Arnett, and Danny McBride.
