Despicable Me 2

After a little casting snafu saw Al Pacino replaced at the last minute by Benjamin Bratt, the July release of Despicable Me 2 is still on track, and the hype machine is kicking into full gear. A brand new poster has just been unveiled featuring Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) looking over an impressive sea of his little, weird, yellow followers, the minions (who are also getting their own movie). The animated sequel from Universal and Illumination Entertainment introduces audiences to Eduardo (Bratt), a new super-criminal causing problems for The Anti-Villain League, which decides to recruit Gru to help them eradicate this new threat.

Here's the new poster for Illumination Entertainment's Despicable Me 2 from IMP Awards:

Despicable Me 2

Despicable Me 2 is directed by Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud and written by Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul, who all held the same positions on the original film. Steve Carell is reprising his role as the despicable Gru (along with his three adopted daughters) with Al Pacino voicing his nemesis for the sequel. Plenty of minions will be back and wackier than ever with Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment bringing the film to theaters on July 3rd, 2013 in 3D, just in time for the summer holiday. Good stuff?

"Steve Carell is reprising his role as the despicable Gru (along with his three adopted daughters) with Al Pacino voicing his nemesis for the sequel." May want to update that with Bratt rather than Pacino.
