They’ve just premiered the fourth trailer (the one that they showed us at ShoWest) for Despicable Me and we’ve got it for you below! Although this film isn’t exactly up my alley, if it’s half as good as the trailers, I’m there! Silly? Yes. Stupid? Possibly. Fun to watch? Sure seems like it!
The film features the vocal talents of Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Will Arnett, Kristen Wiig, Danny McBride, and Julie Andrews. The film is directed by Chris Renaud and Pierre Coffin, and will be released in theaters on July 9, 2010.
Despicable Me centers on a villain named Gru, who plans on taking over the world. 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. That is until the day he runs into a trio of orphan girls who mistakenly take him as their potential father figure.
Even though Gru’s the villain, he’s not all bad, which is a nice twist on the usual kids story (and a good message to send out to out little ones). I honestly don’t know if it’s intentional or not (someone help me out here) but his minions look, sound, talk, laugh and push each over exactly like the little characters in the video game “Worms,” violence and all. Am I wrong?
What do you think of the trailer?
