Okay, all you cynics out there. We know exactly what you're thinking when it comes to "Despicable Me 2." All those little "cuddly" minions and their "hilarious" nonsensical dialogue. The cutesy story about a bad guy turning good due to the love of children. The corporate tie-ins. We get it. You're determined to hate on this thing. We're right there with you.
Or, you know, we would be. Exceeeept, check out the new Apple Trailers clip for "Despicable Me 2," you guys. Because it's just so gosh darn cute and fun that even the most cynical fan will love it despite themselves.
Dang it, it's hard to be darkly edgy when they keep putting out stuff like this!
So what do we learn form this trailer? Well, Steve Carell's lovable supervillain Gru is back in action, as he's drafted (or kidnapped, depending on how you look at it) by the Anti-Villain League to defeat a new menace that threatens the world. And since his new League partner is voiced by none other than Kristen Wiig, chances are this installment will be even funnier than the first.
Oh, and there's plenty of minion hijinks as well, so if you're still upset over Twinkies being phased out, then this is your lucky day.
"Despicable Me 2" hits theaters on July 3, but that's cool. It gives you all another three and a half months to pretend to be cynical. Good luck with that!
