This week sees the release of Despicable Me 2, and as is increasingly the case in Hollywood, there’s a TVO connection.
The hotly anticipated film had us sold as soon as we watched the first film and fell in love with Gru, Margo, Edith, Agnes and, of course, the Minions, the latter of whom are also getting their own spin-off movie next year.
Joining Steve Carrell, Russell Brand and Kristen Wiig this time around is none other than Steve Coogan, as Silas Ramsbottom, the head of the Anti-Villain League. We’re not sure if it’s intentional or not, but we’re rather impressed that the character has a vague look of Steve about it… if he put on a heavy amount of poundage, anyway! Check out those jowls!
Anyhew, the film has already seen release down under this weekend, and will be followed by its UK release this Friday.
Preview screenings are already taking place across the country, and US fans won’t have long to wait either: it is released there on July 3rd. You can see the trailer below.
