Illumination Entertainment and Universal have unleashed a new international poster for their upcoming animated movie Despicable Me.
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.
The movie is co-directed by Pierre Coffin (Gary’s Fall), Chris Renaud (No Time for Nuts), and Sergio Pablos (Tarzan). The screenplay was co-written by writing partners Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul (Bubble Boy, The Santa Clause 2, Horton Hears a Who!, College Road Trip).
Despicable Me features voice acting from Steve Carrell, Kristen Wiig, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, and Danny McBride, among others, and comes out July 9, 2010.
