If you are a child, a child at heart, or actually have a heart, then you are probably very anxious to see what Despicable Me 2 is going to bring to the big screen next summer. If it is anything like the first one, you can expect evil plans, the evil plans going awry, and a whole lot of cuteness from Gru’s adopted daughters and his minions. The film is set to be released July 3, 2013 and it is expected to be a summer hit in the box office.

The newly-released Despicable Me 2 trailer indicates that there is going to be an other-worldly influence in the plot line. Two of the minions are babysitting the girls and once they hear a noise, they go to investigate outside. They are very scared and shaking in their little boots, but it turns out that it was just a mangy cat in the trash. What they did not expect was that they would be abducted by aliens. Yup, aliens are apparently going to make their presence known this time around. I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that Gru stole the moon in the first film.

Despicable Me 2 will see Steve Carell, Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove, and Kirsten Wiig reprising their roles, but will also introduce Al Pacino as Gru’s nemesis this time around. How exciting! Let’s just hope the minions can get out of this sticky situation.
