New Despicable Me 2 Trailer Lands

More Minion action

Despicable Me 2

Illumination Entertainment and Universal know what we want to see from the Despicable Me sequel. We want adorable Minions. All right, we also want Steve Carell’s chucklesome Gru, but mostly? Minions. And that’s exactly what we get in this new teaser for the film. Check it out in HD at Apple’s trailer pad.

There’s a definite sense that the Despicable Me 2 team are taking the comedy teaser approach to selling the new movie, with a series of brief interludes starring the yellow troublemakers.

This time, we’re treated to a Halloween-themed vid (including the iconic theme music) that sees two of the creatures spooked by something outside, then scared even more by an ominous light from above.

What we haven’t got yet is a clear idea of what the plot will be, but honestly, it’s good they’re not giving too much away at this early stage. And it's possible that the idea of Minions being snatched by something is a hint at the story.

With Carell, Russell Brand, Kristen Wiig, Mirada Cosgrove, Dana Gaier and Elsie Fisher all back for this one (joined by new voice Al Pacino), Despicable Me 2 will arrive on June 28.
