Teaser Trailer and Poster for DESPICABLE ME 2

By Matt Goldberg


Despicable Me 2 teaser trailer and poster. Teaser trailer and poster for Despicable Me 2 starring Steve Carell, Jason Segel, and Al Pacino.

Universal has released the teaser trailer and poster for Despicable Me 2.  There aren't any plot details or even footage from the film, but that doesn't mean the marketing campaign can't begin 15 months before the movie opens.  So how do you sell a movie without the movie?  The minions!  By being adorable, the minions can sell anything.  Granted, this is really more of an announcement trailer, although I have no idea why they're "singing" the Beach Boys' "Barbara Ann".  I can't remember if that was a thing in the first movie or not.

Hit the jump to check out the teaser trailer and poster.  The film features the voice talents of Steve Carell, Jason Segel, and Al Pacino.  Despicable Me 2 opens in 3D on July 3, 2013.

Here's the early official synopsis for Despicable Me 2:

Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s worldwide blockbuster, Despicable Me, delighted audiences around the globe in 2010, grossing more than $540 million and becoming the 10th-biggest animated motion picture in U.S. history.  In Summer 2013, get ready for more minion madness in Despicable Me 2.  Chris Meledandri and his acclaimed filmmaking team create an all-new comedy animated adventure featuring the return of Gru (Steve Carell), the girls, the unpredictably hilarious minions...and a host of new and outrageously funny characters.

New US Despicable Me 2 Poster

We've already had a glimpse of Despicable Me 2's Minions in teaser trailer form. We've caught a glimpse of the little blighters in the movie's trailer. Now, here's one grabbing the glory all for himself in this new poster that's debuted over at Primary Ignition. Because who doesn't love a Minion, right?

This one, Phil, seen here executing the classic Top Gun towel-off, is no doubt kitting up in boiler suit and protective goggles for another day of not really assisting Gru (Steve Carell) and gadgets wiz Dr. Nefario (Russell Brand) in their hairbrained schemes. Facing off against them this time is a new, as-yet unnamed nemesis voiced by Al Pacino.

Despicable Me directors Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud return for the sequel to oversee a voice cast boasting the talents of Carell, Pacino, Brand, Kristen Wiig and Steve Coogan.

Opening in the US on July 3, Despicable Me 2 is out on Albion's fair-to-mild-with-snowy-patches shores on June 28.

The Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2, and Minions Movie Posters

Illumination: Every Despicable Me Poster, Ranked

In 2010, Illumination Entertainment turned Steve Carell into the genius supervillain named Felonious Gru, gave him an evil lair of countless yellow Minions, dropped three kids into his life, and turned it into a phenomenon. Despicable Me was a box office hit and grossed more than $543 million dollars, launching three sequels, two prequels, and more Minion merchandise you could shake a banana at.

What helped the franchise get going were eye-catching posters, which hinted at details in the movie as well as artists who put their love of the movies right back into fan-made posters. Looking through a decade of Gru and company, it's easy to see why the series was such a big hit.

10 The Official Original

By March of 2010, folks had a trailer and this poster to drool over. It shows off Gru and his kids, Vector on the left with Dr. Nefario balanced on the right, the countless Minions, all with the moon centered. Even in the void of Minions, you can already see personalities starting to show. The moon, being Gru's target in the movie, is almost overwhelming in the sky but not as overwhelmed as Gru seems to be trying to corral the children in.

9 Minonpaloza

What is better than one minion on a poster? A Where's Waldo's worth of Minions! Here's an attempt to shoehorn even more Minion personalities per square inch of a poster. One and two-eyed variants, staring off into different directions, smiling, and grinning. One is even crowd surfing, and the more you stare at the poster, it feels like you're witnessing a mosh pit. The one in the lower left has seen some stuff in his days and on the other side, one was caught mid sneeze.

8 Minions! Minions!! Minions!!!

This Despicable Me 2 poster has no text, even though someone left room for it, but the squares with Minions give a very Bradey Bunch feel to it. Each of the yellow fellows' quirks shines and begs to be made into never-ending merchandise possibilities.

The child trio at the bottom looks a little bored with the whole situation and Gru appears to be seconds away from bashing El Macho over the head, but the Minions above are in their own little world. Or is it their own big movie?

7 Drama Is Life With The Dull Bits Cut Out

The only minimalistic posters on this list, and what it doesn't have in pazazz it makes up in style. With only three muted colors, worn textures, and a silhouette that envokes Alfred Hitchcock, this poster by Deviant Artist miserym would be an excellent addition on any wall. While the minimalism approach leaves out other characters, Gru and his nose are obvious. But it's the chosen color scheme that hints toward the Minions without having a single goggle-covered eye. A collection of these with all the characters, in different color profiles, would be a great gift for any fan.

6 Somewhere A Pixar Lawyer Just Perked Up

One could conceive a Toy Story and Despicable Me crossover as the amount of green three-eyed Minions or yellow single-eyed alien toys would be unheard of. A world where Woody becomes a favorite toy of Margo with Agnes flying Buzz around? It writes itself and while it'll probably never happen, Wolf Chung took a stab at what a simple poster would look like. The shadow makes it obvious that it's Gru (who else could pull of that nose?) whose hand is pulling a prison-themed Minion from the alien-filled claw machine, it's a Toy Story homage if there's ever been one.

One of the reasons this isn't farther up the list is the perspective and positioning of the Minion being pulled. It makes it look off as if it's too long or at the wrong angle but it's a minor issue to such a great piece.

5 One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other

This Japanese poster for Despicable Me 2 is basic except for the addition of the purple-haired Minion, which turns out to be Kevin turned evil by El Macho. Somehow on this poster, it's this evil anti-Minion and El Macho who stand out among the havoc of the Minions around them. There's so much color in this poster, but it's not distracting and nothing is hidden or gets lost. Still, it's the non-humorous bored-to-death look of Evil-Kevin that makes this poster a stand out.

4 I'll Be Banana

Minionator: Banana Day is the crossover nobody expected to want but Saan Irfan made it happen. The first one was about a Minion who is sent back in time to kill Gru's mother only to fail. In Miniontor: Banana Day, that same Minion is back, but this time it's out to save Gru from another, more powerful, Minion sent back to kill Gru before he's old enough to become an evil genius. The rest of the Minionator franchise kind of dies down after that, reusing the "more Minions from the future" troupe but Banana Day has a soft spot as a favorite in all of our yellow cyborg hearts.

3 Join Today! Become A Minion!

Based on World War I and World War II propaganda posters of Germany and Russia, Reddit user IronRectangle used a small color palette and sharp lines to create this Pro-Gru poster. Gru's silhouette blocks out the moon, an obvious reference to the moon, but the color makes you think about the Japanese flag. The other brilliance of this poster is that it's also an anti-Illustrator poster - let that sink in for a moment.

2 Bello Like The Banana

This official '80s inspired Minions poster looks like it belongs in the music video for Weezer's "Take On Me" cover, hanging on a young Rivers Cuomo's wall. The neon colors, the dark background, lines coming from somewhere, lines going around the Minion, lines coming out of the Minion's head to match its spiked hair, and neon-like lines creating the word "Bello." Why a triangle? Maybe to represent the three main movies or maybe it's just another totally rad '80s symbol that looks totally tubular.

1 One Poster Stands Above The Rest

At first glance, one may pass this Despicable Me 3 poster off as propaganda or minimalist, but it goes deeper than that. Artist Russ Gray worked for Universal and creative director Ty Mattson to create a style guide and artwork for Despicable Me 3 marketing including playing cards for McDonald's Happy Meals. This piece, however, has an '80s spy movie vibe more than a war propaganda poster. The profiles of our hero and heroine, the black and white-suited brothers very reminiscent of Mad Magazine's "Spy vs Spy" comic, and antagonist Bratt pointing at the Dumont Diamond. It sets up the movie without giving anything away, but it tells its story, and Gru nose a good story.

Everything Wrong With Despicable Me 2 In 16 Minutes Or Less

I enjoyed 2010's "Despicable Me" immensely, so I approached "Despicable Me 2" with a wary eye. "Despicable Me" told a funny, sweet, self-contained story about a guy named Gru (Steve Carrell) who renounces villainy and embraces fatherhood. It ended on a note that required no further speculation. Satisfied viewers like me sang "So Long, Farewell" to Gru and his crew. Reps at Universal looked at "Despicable Me's" $251 million dollar domestic box office gross and sang "Never Can Say Goodbye." So, another summer weekend brings another summer sequel.

"Despicable Me 2" is as serviceable as it is unnecessary. Therein lies the rub for me. Here I sit on the fence between 2-1/2 and 3 stars, unsure of where I will fall. On the "thumbs down" side, there's dissatisfaction with a returning hero who is far blander than his original incarnation; he's been neutered by the one thing that made "Despicable Me"'s ending so satisfying. On the "thumbs-up" side is a series of clever touches made with love and attention by cast and crew. These moments are so good I almost feel despicable for being undecided. So this review is a battle between Evil Film Critic Odie and Emotional Moviegoer Odie. You have a luxury I currently do not: You can look at the star rating above and see who won.

The opening of "Despicable Me 2" is an example of its brash cleverness. An entire intelligence team and their outpost is attacked by a huge horseshoe magnet straight out of that Warner Bros. cartoon subsidiary, The Acme Company. Almost everyone and everything is pulled comically into the sky and relocated, save for a port-a-potty and its terrified inhabitant. This act of vandalism attracts the attention of the AVI, an organization that tracks and reports the kind of villainy Gru partook in back in the days of  "Despicable Me." The AVI sends out agent Lucy (Kristen Wiig) to ask Gru to use his powers of villainous deduction to figure out who's behind these extreme demonstrations of magnetic personality. Lucy's idea of asking nicely is electrocuting Gru with a "lipstick taser" before tossing him into the trunk of her superspy car-slash-plane-slash-boat.

Before his Meet Cute with Lucy, Gru was living a boring, domesticated life. Now retired, the only despicable act he is perpetrating on society is a series of horrific tasting jams and jellies. It drives his colleague Dr. Nefario (Russell Brand) to resign and take a position with a new villain. Gru's new project will help his undercover operation as a vendor at the local mall. Lucy believes the mastermind AVI seeks is one of the other store owners at the mall. Suspects include a hairdresser, whose appearance conjures up images of "Shampoo" recast with Paul Williams, and an extremely masculine Mexican restaurant owner whom Gru thinks bears strong resemblance to a bad guy named "El Macho." Since El Macho es muerte (his death scene will put hair on your chest), Gru is immediately suspicious.

Al Pacino was supposed to play Eduardo, the guy Gru thinks is El Macho. Al left the movie, but his accent apparently remained. Benjamin Bratt picks up the most over-the-top Hispanic accent since Tony Montana and runs a marathon with it. His line readings are a blast, though some viewers might find Eduardo somewhat politically incorrect. Whether Eduardo is El Macho isn't important; he brings much needed spark to "Despicable Me 2," upstaging Gru at every turn. In fact, until the climax, everyone upstages Gru. Carrell's accented line readings are still a pleasure, but I wanted more of the old Gru's scheming.

"Despicable Me 2" does offer a few flashes of what endeared me to its hero in the first place. Gru's suspicions about Eduardo increases tenfold when his eldest daughter Margo (Miranda Cosgrove) feasts her eyes on Eduardo's teenage son Antonio (Moises Arias). Gru's amusingly unsuccessful (and rather mean) attempts to keep Margo from growing up have a familiar ring of disaster for any dad raising a daughter. Gru even brings his freeze gun out of retirement to cool Antonio's raging hormones, though he aims it at the wrong parts of this lothario.

While Gru worries about Margo's love life, she and her sisters Agnes (Elsie Fisher) and Edith (Dana Gaier) worry about his, even setting him up on vHarmony (or whatever that dating site is that caters to the wrong side of the law). When Agnes sees Lucy, she correctly pegs that Gru has a thing for her. This potential Mommy subplot is designed to inject emotion into "Despicable Me 2." While it works for the most part (Agnes' big, expression-filled eyes are the animators' most glorious creations), nothing in the sequel comes as close to yanking my heartstrings as the moment when Gru, literally caught between the moon and New York City in the original, sees that pink ballet recital ticket floating in space.

"Despicable Me 2" lags on occasion, but every time I found my attention waning, the filmmakers did something wicked to goose me. Many of these moments involve my second favorite thing about "Despicable Me," Gru's minions. The cheerful little yellow creatures with overalls become integral plot points this time, undergoing a Gremlins-style metamorphosis to the dark side courtesy of our mystery villain. This leads to a nod to Philip Kaufman's "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" that, dare I say, is worth the price of admission. The minions also figure in the second dressed-in-all-white homage to '90s music to appear in a 2013 summer film. I laughed so hard I almost spat out my soda. It was at that moment that I found myself torn about my star rating.

This is where you came in. While I remain disappointed that the sequel gives me a subdued Gru and an uneven pace, I keep remembering things about "Despicable Me 2" that make me smile. For every meh moment, there's almost 2 well-conceived gags or lines. The voice talent remains top-notch, with Wiig, Bratt, Steve Coogan and the returning Russell Brand as stand-outs. The 3-D, as far as I can tell, is quite good, especially during the closing credits. (Full disclosure: like some of Gru's minions, I've only got one working eye, which turns 3-D into 2.25-D.) Some of the minor plot points pay off big time. I'm as enamored of the Pharrell Williams songs in this one as I was in the first film (and they're well used). And directors Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud, and screenwriters Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul milk a few sweet moments of genuine emotional heft from the relationship between Gru and his kids.

With all that in mind, I have decided to award three stars to "Despicable Me 2." Besides, the Evil Film Critic has to win sometimes.

Movie Review: DESPICABLE ME 2

By ABBIE BERNSTEIN / Contributing Writer

Posted: July 4th, 2013 / 12:11 PM

Rating: PG
Stars (voices):
Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Benjamin Bratt, Miranda Cosgrove, Russell Brand
Ken Daurio & Cinco Paul
Pierre Coffin & Chris Renaud
Distributor: Universal

Release Date:
July 3, 2013

Between the 2010 release of the original DESPICABLE ME and its new sequel, DESPICABLE ME 2, the filmmakers seem to have figured out that their primary selling point is not their main character Gru (voiced by Steve Carell), now a reformed villain and not the, well, despicable figure he was in the original. It’s not even the trio of cute little girls he adopted last time around. Rather, it’s Gru’s minions, those strange little goggle-wearing, Twinkie-shaped-and-colored beings who babble in their own language, giggle uncontrollably and act like the Three Thousand Stooges, though they attempt to obey Gru’s every order and adore the kids.

Gru is pressured by the Anti-Villain League (think James Bond’s handlers) to smoke out a still-active villain. To this end, Gru is paired up with chatty but adept superspy Lucy (voiced by Kristen Wiig), which immediately has his kids thinking of wedding bells, no matter how much Gru insists he has no interest in any kind of romance, ever. Gru is sure his new nemesis is the formidable El Macho (voiced by Benjamin Bratt), though the evidence points elsewhere and Gru may be swayed by personal concerns. Whoever is behind it, there is indeed a nefarious plan afoot, and minions begin disappearing.

The main plot tracks well enough, with Gru and Lucy diligently seeking their adversary in absurd surroundings. The balance between Gru being a loving father and retaining his hauteur and villain’s logic is handled well, while Lucy is personable and eccentric, without slipping over into being annoying. The focus is off the little girls, so there’s nothing as indelible this time around as the original’s “It’s so fluffy!”, though the unicorn motif remains.

The big set-pieces belong to the minions, who sing (albeit mostly in nonsense-word minions-speak), dance, have romantic fantasies, dress up in weird costumes and continue to slap, smack and poke each other with glee. These creatures are so cheerfully absurd that even though you may feel a little bit like a sucker for succumbing, chances are, you will actually laugh out loud a few times, especially if you like bizarre song parodies (there is at least one number you’ll never hear the same way again).

There are some bits here that very small children will find scary but tolerable and everybody else will find amusing. The filmmakers deserve special credit for noticing that the opposite of yellow is purple (if this doesn’t make sense to you now, it will when you watch the movie). Mainly, DESPICABLE ME 2 sidesteps its predecessor’s jolting tonal shifts. We don’t have to see Gru fight with himself over his paternal feelings nor go through any sort of predictable cul-de-sac character drama to get to the good stuff. The visual humor is continuous and there’s a pleasant light touch all round, so that writers Ken Daurio & Cinco Paul and directors Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud all seem to be on surer footing this time around.

The voice cast seems to be having a very good time, with Carell doing his Eastern European best as Gru, Wiig being enthusiastically nerdy as Lucy and Bratt displaying a pleasingly goofy side as El Macho. Russell Brand entertainingly reprises his Hammer-esque Dr. Nefario. Directors Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud once again supply the squeaky, warbling minion voices.

Overall, DESPICABLE ME 2 is fun. It doesn’t try to tug at your heart nor terrify you – it’s just happily silly entertainment that genuinely is for the whole family, from tykes to those actually shelling out the money for the tickets.
