Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s worldwide blockbuster Despicable Me entertained audiences around the globe in 2010, grossing more than $540 million and becoming the 10th-biggest animated motion picture in U.S. history. In summer 2013, get ready for more Minion madness in Despicable Me 2.
Chris Meledandri and his acclaimed filmmaking team create an all-new comedy adventure featuring the return of (former?) super-villain Gru (Steve Carell), his adorable girls, the unpredictably hilarious Minions...and a host of new and outrageously funny characters.
Now that the everentrepreneurial Gru (STEVE CARELL) has left behind a life of super crime to raise Margo (MIRANDA COSGROVE of television’s iCarly), Edith (DANA GAIER of Bullied) and Agnes (ELSIE FISHER of television’s Masha and the Bear), Gru, Dr. Nefario (RUSSELL BRAND of Get Him to the Greek, Hop) and the Minions have some free time on their hands.
But as he starts to adjust to his role as a suburban family man, an ultrasecret organization dedicated to fighting evil around the globe comes knocking.
Now, it’s up to Gru and his new partner, Lucy Wilde (KRISTEN WIIG of Bridesmaids, TV’s Saturday Night Live), to discover who is responsible for a spectacular crime and bring him to justice. After all, it takes the world’s greatest exvillain to catch the one vying to take his place…
Joining the returning cast for Despicable Me 2 are KEN JEONG (The Hangover trilogy, television’s Community) as Floyd Eaglesan, proprietor of the local hair replacement club for men and key suspect in the most despicable crime to hit the globe since Gru departed the game; STEVE COOGAN (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, Tropic Thunder) as Silas Ramsbottom, Lucy’s boss in the AntiVillain League and a superspy whose surname offers an endless source of amusement to the Minions; MOISES ARIAS (Hannah Montana, The Secret World of Arrietty) as Antonio, the ohsosuave object of Margo’s girlhood affection (and Gru’s supreme annoyance); and BENJAMIN BRATT (Miss Congeniality, Snitch) as Eduardo Perez, Antonio’s father, owner of Salsa & Salsa restaurant, and the man who may or may not be the most macho supervillain who ever villained, El Macho.
