Either it's still too early or Universal Pictures is afraid to show us any real footage from Despicable Me. Releasing the film's second trailer, we aren't given that much indication of a plot, and only hear about one line of dialogue. The film isn't out until next summer, so I guess we can assume that Universal is seeing this preview as a second teaser trailer; which it most definitely feels like.
Despicable Me Trailer
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 beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru (voiced by 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.
The world's greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.
