Despicable Me1 10 New Despicable Me Clips

Universal Pictures will unleash its first 3D animated venture, Despicable Me, in theaters this month and we have just under eight minutes of new footage from the movie for you to check out.

Despicable Me finds the unaccomplished but nonetheless determined criminal mastermind, Gru (voice of Steve Carell), planning the most elaborate heist in history – stealing the moon.  Naturally, an unforeseen obstacle arises in the form of three young girls – Agnes, Edith, and Margo – whose intrusion into Gru’s life brings out the gentler, paternalistic side of the diabolical thief’s personality.

Horton Hears a Who! screenwriters Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul wrote the script for Despicable Me, while Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs story artist Chris Renaud and animator Pierre Coffin handled directorial duties.  The film features the vocal talents of several comedic types, the likes of which includes Carell, Russell Brand (Get Him to the Greek), Jason Segel (Gulliver’s Travels), and Jemaine Clement (Men in Black 3).

You can watch all 10 new clips from the flick below:

The “bad guy gets in touch with his gentler side” plot of Despicable Me feels a bit like Shrek to me and the cartoony animation in this new footage is a step below the quality of Pixar’s most recent work in Toy Story 3.  Still, the humor seems decent – the jokes that involve fart guns and Gru’s pants getting pulled down will go over with the kiddies – and I like the absence of excessive pop culture riffs.  If nothing else, Despicable Me looks like this year’s Monsters vs. Aliens – nothing particularly memorable or substantial, but a fun enough way to pass a few hours with your young ones.

What do you think?  Does Despicable Me looks like a laugh-out-loud heist flick?  Will you be seeing this one in 2D or 3D?  Sound off in the comments section below.

Despicable Me arrives in regular and 3D theaters in the U.S. on July 9th, 2010.

  2. Love it wen the little girl says”is this considered annoying plupluplu” and wen shes like “its so fluffy!” im gonna see this one!!!!

  3. Yeah, the problem is they show so many scenes that by the time you watch the film you’ve already seen most of the funny stuff.


    • Isn’t that what happens with most comedies?

      • Joshua,

        Unfortunately, yes.


  4. I definately want to see it, however it’s just one of those movies I’ll wait to come to DvD first.

  5. Probably not 3D unless it gets good reviews. I do want to see this though. Carell has a great cartoon voice. Loved him in Horton. Plus Jermaine being in it only boosts it up more.

  6. Youre right Vic,but i like the funny parts in this one!!!! They always show the BEST parts in trailers though……

    • Mate, this is probably the BEST film I’ve watched all year.
      I’m 19.

  7. What’s the little girls name? The one who said it so fluffy. I love her!!
    I would like to know her name if anyone knows.

    • Agnes is the little girl’s name.
      Its so fluffy, I’m gonna die!!

  8. If you know her name just post it as a comment. thx

  9. “Naturally, an unforeseen obstacle arises in the form of three young girls – Agnes, Edith, and Margo…”

    I guess, she’s Margo.

  10. Nope, she’s Agnes. (:

    • Ha Ha, my bad… Wrong guess… :p
