First Full Trailer of 'Despicable Me 2': Gru Is Kidnapped
Gru is back in the game as the first full trailer for "Despicable Me 2" is released online. Set to Eminem's "Without Me", the video starts out as the so-called world's greatest villain sends his adopted daughters to bed, hinting that Gru now deals with the things father does, including a daughter texting with a boy.
His peaceful life, however, is turned upside down when Agent Lucy Wilde of the Anti-Villain League visits him and asks him to come with her. Initially denying the request, Gru is then unwillingly put in her car trunk and to an underwater hideout. Gru is then assigned to help take down a fellow villain, armed with some cool new cars, gadgets and weapons.
Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud are back as directors for the "Despicable Me" sequel, with Steve Carell returning to voice Gru. Kristen Wiig, who voiced Miss Hattie in the first film, lends her voice for Agent Lucy this time, with Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove, Al Pacino, Steve Coogan and Ken Jeong also joining the voice cast ensemble.
Written by Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul who provided the script for the first film, "Despicable Me 2" is set to invade U.S. theaters on July 3.
