A new trailer, poster, and images are now online for Despicable Me 2. The new trailer shows Gru (Steve Carell) being kidnapped by the “Anti-Villain League”, and being recruited in order to defeat a new super villain. Gru seems to have softened considerably since becoming the father of Margo, Agnes, and Edith. Unsurprisingly, the best jokes belong to the minions, and although Despicable Me 2 looks okay, I’m still more excited to see the minions’ spinoff.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer, poster, and images. The film also features the voices of Kristen Wiig, Al Pacino, Miranda Cosgrove and Russell Brand. Despicable Me 2 opens in 3D on July 3rd.
