trailer break: ‘Despicable Me’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

I’ve already seen this, but Universal is embargoing all commentary on the film from critics who’ve seen it till June 28th, so I can’t say anything at all. Not even that an embargo on this movie makes very little sense.

But I can say this, and I would have said this even before I saw the film. I’m so tired of all the sequels and remakes and reboots and adaptations from TV and comic books… even when they’re good, because I’m so hungry to see new stories and new characters and new everything. And this, at least, does offer that: it’s a totally original story! Written originally for the screens of cinema! What a concept!

Also: That totally does not sound like Steve Carell as Gru, does it? Neat.

Despicable Me opens in the U.S. and Canada on July 9, and in the U.K. on October 15.
