Don't Watch: First Trailer for Steve Carell's Despicable Me
This trailer is a bunch of bullshit. It's not actually about the painfully stereotypical ADD child that causes mayhem in Egypt. Instead, it's about a deplorable evil mastermind named Gru, voiced by Steve Carell, who plans to steal the moon. But a trio of orphan girls, named Margo, Edith and Agnes, are the one thing that could make him rethink his evil plan. That's what this is really about, but besides a Hitchcock-like silhouette at the end, this trailer for Despicable Me doesn't even show us what Gru looks like or any of that story. And considering I hated the rest of it, well, the only thing I can say is that it looks terrible.
