First look: Despicable Me

A second promo for this animated 3D feature.

PHjxikjouWlymqUniversal Pictures has released a new trailer for its upcoming 3D animated feature Despicable Me. Directed by Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud, the film – a joint venture with Illumination Entertainment – sees an evil super villain named Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) plotting to steal the moon. However, standing in his way are three orphan girls, all of whom are prepared to stop this schemer in his tracks.

Check out the trailer below, courtesy of trailer addict.

Despicable Me stars Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Danny McBride and Julie Andrews. It is scheduled for release on 09 July 2010.
