Synopsis:

In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden deep beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by an army of tireless, little yellow minions, we discover Gru (Steve Carell), planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon (Yes, the moon!) in Universal’s new 3-D CGI feature, Despicable Me.

Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad.

One of the world’s greatest super-villains has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.

Here’s the trailer.

Don’t you love the “dart gun” part? That cracked me up.

Love that word minions–describes those cliquey followers vacant between the ears….

Melissa P. @Mel4Him June 24, 2010 - 9:44 am

This movie is going to be hilarious. I love the Stutter video clip. We went to the movies a few weeks ago and they were advertising this movie with those characters. They were blow up characters and when you whacked them they each said something. lol.

My kids are really itching to see this. They are cracking up at the previews and they keep reminding me, “July 9th, mom, July 9th!”

I love the minion clips, we actually saw trailer 3 when we went to see Harry Potter, and Lucas was laughing hysterically.

But, this is the first time I’ve seen the stutter clip with the minions – love it! <3

Can’t wait to go see this movie with the kids!
