On paper, the Despicable Me franchise doesn’t exactly scream ‘box-office spectacular’.
Who would have thought a series focussed on a super-villain named Gru and thousands of tiny yellow creatures would spawn numerous feature length films, the last of which - Minions - grossed over $1.1 billion?
After four years, the main-series is finally back for Despicable Me 3, with Steve Carrell, Kristen Wiig, and Steve Coogan all back for the sequel.
Universal has released the film's second trailer, debuting Gru’s richer and equally evil twin-brother, Dru, who is also voiced by Carrell. Notably, the Minions only make a fleeting appearance once more, the main concern being the brothers.
During the first trailer, we were offered an extended look at Balthazar Bratt, the child star turned ‘80s style supervillain voiced by South Park’s Trey Parker.
Other actors to feature in the film include Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, and Nev Scharrell. Despicable Me 3 hits cinemas in summer 2017.
