A couple of years ago, I walked into a screening of the first Despicable Me not knowing anything about it and not really expecting to get much out of it. Little did I know that it would actually be a very surprising film, even making my top ten list of 2010. Now that we’re faced with a sequel, the aptly-named Despicable Me 2, I’m actually finding myself anticipating an animated film, something that hasn’t happened in quite some time.
Today, thanks to First Showing, we have a new Halloween trailer for the film that features comedy, suspense, and even an alien abduction. From this trailer, it’s hard to pin down just what the film will be about, if it even has anything to do with it at all. Last time we saw these characters, Gru had adopted some kids that he was originally going to use in one of his schemes, so presumably it will pick up somewhere from there.
Unfortunately, the plot is still being kept a secret for the time being, so we’ll just have to keep guessing as to where the story could possibly go from where the original left off. Hopefully the filmmakers will deliver something that’s just as memorable this time around.
Despicable Me 2 hits theaters next summer on July 3, 2013.
