Steve Carell Steals the Moon in New Clips from Despicable Me

by at . Comments

Despicable Me opens in theaters on July 9th, and Universal Studios has released 10 new clips to promote the film, starring Steve Carell!

In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru (Carell), planning the biggest heist in the history of the world: He is going to steal the moon!

Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad.
