Gru Has A Brother In Second 'Despicable Me 3' Trailer

Despicable Me 3

The second official trailer for Despicable Me 3 was released on Wednesday, giving eager audiences a glimpse into the return of the much-loved minions to theatres in 2017. In that one, we met the spiky-haired super villain in shoulder pads named Balthazar Bratt, played by Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award victor Trey Parker (co-creator of Comedy Central " s global phenomenon South Park and the Broadway smash The Book of Mormon).

It appears the first trailer was merely for the opening act, as Gru's failure against Parker's Balthazar Blatt is now revealed to have gotten him fired from the Anti-Villain League. Though we only get a brief look at the film's new villain, it's safe to say that Balthazar will serve as Gru's most formidable nemesis to date.


With a supporting voice cast that includes Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Steve Coogan, Julie Andrews, and Jenny Slate, Despicable Me 3 should be one of the summer's big family hits when it debuts on June 30. Universal and Illumination Entertainment are counting on this third movie for continued success.

Despicable Me 3 introduces a new character to the franchise: Gru's twin brother, Dru. Despicable Me made more than $500 million worldwide, with Despicable Me 2 greatly surpassing that, coming in at just under $1 billion. The first installment grossed $543M globally in theaters, but since then, each of the films in the franchise have hovered around the $1B mark. The prequel film Minions was released in 2015 and earned $1.159 billion at the global box office.
