Eight New Clips from Despicable Me
06.28.10 by BJSprecher
The official press junket for Universal's foray into family-friendly animated features, Despicable Me, was held this past weekend in Los Angeles, and to coincide with the event eight new clips from the 3-D CGI movie have been released. The story follows the supervillain Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) as he attempts to outdo his main competitor in supervillainy, the more dastardly Vector (Jason Segel), by stealing the moon and win favor with his disparaging mother (Julie Andrews).
With the mad scientist Dr. Nefario (Russell Brand) designing weapons for him plus an army of faithful, if not very bright, minions at his command, it appears as if Gru might just succeed with his scheme. However, when Gru takes in Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Dana Gaier), and Agnes (Elsie Fisher), three little orphaned girls who see in Gru a potential father-figure, his life is turned upside down.
All of the new clips can be viewed in the player below, along with the two clips released last week.
Despicable Me was directed by Pierre Morel and Chris Renaud and also stars the voice talents of Kristen Wiig, Will Arnett, and Danny McBride.
