‘Despicable Me 3’ Trailer: Get Ready for Twin Magic
It’s not guaranteed, but there’s a legitimate chance that when all is said and done that Despicable Me 3 reigns supreme as the top-grossing movie of the 2017 summer box office. The previous sequels, plus the Minions spinoff, have grossed more than $2.6 billion worldwide, and each of the last two made well over $300 million in the United States alone. Despicable Me 3 looks like it will offer plenty of what fans of the series crave: Those goofy gibberish-spouting Minions, wacky misadventures, and plenty of Steve Carell’s lovably evil Gru, plus now he’s got a twin brother (or, as he calls him, “a tween broothur”) to contend with as well.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
The team who brought you Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, returns to continue the adventures of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions. Despicable Me 3 is directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, co-directed by Eric Guillon, and written by Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio.
This doesn’t look wildly different than any of the previous movies, and I guess that’s the point; a lot of people love the Despicable Me formula, and the filmmakers plan to give that to the audience in as high a dose as they can possibly handle. Despicable Me 3 — excuse me, Despicable M3 — opens in theaters on June 30, 2017.
