Of course, it’s the everlovin’ yellow minions, so you can’t expect them to sing the right lyrics. All you’re going to hear, aside from the accompanying party horn, is gibberish and the types of fruits that minions love to eat. But hey, it’s the minions! Even without words, the guys are fun to watch.

Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me 2 in theaters July 3rd 2013

Universal Pictures unveils plans to release Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me 2 on July 3, 2013, per Coming Soon. The movie is a sequel to Illumination’s CG animated 3D movie Despicable Me, which opened July 9, 2010.

Last summer, Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment teamed on a memorable CG animated project filled with delightful little yellow happiness, three adoring little girls, and a number of the world’s greatest super villains. …doesn’t exactly sound family friendly, but we can put a spin on anything! The result was the very successful Despicable Me, which helped usher in a seemingly never-ending string of 3D movies. Now, Illumination and Universal are planning to get Despicable all over again, bringing a sequel to the franchise into our lives, hitting theaters for an anticipated launch July 3rd, 2013. Whether or not we’ll have flying cars by then, and/or if 3D will continue to be so popular, we don’t know. But as long as we get to hang out with the minions again, we’re happy!

Just a few short months ago, Despicable Me was owning box office reports left and right. Sadly, like with all great films, it was eventually no longer available in theaters, leaving a bunch of sad fans with tears behind their 3D glasses. However, and again like with all great films, there’s always the big DVD and Blu-ray release date to look forward to, where you could then just watch the film again and again from the comfort of your own couch — perhaps above a giant shark tank, if you’d like. For fans of Despicable Me, the wait is soon over, as Universal Studios Home Entertainment has announced the official date for the home editions, December 14th. Check out the full press release after the break – and get ready to get evil!

Despicable Me is despicable today says Universal Pictures

One of the world’s greatest super-villains has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith, and Agnes. Never before has dastardly and evil Gru been faced with such a task. Shrink rays, freeze rays, combat vehicles… sure. That’s all commonplace. But being a father figure to a grouping of sweet kids? That’s new on the list. Such is the story of Despicable Me, the creation of Universal Studios and Illumination Entertainment which reaches theaters today, July 9th. The 3D and CG animated film stars Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove, and Julie Andrews. Critics and fans, alike, are expecting big things from the film, though it does have stiff competition with Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story 3, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and The Last Airbender. I think it’s time to give evil, and Gru, a chance!!

In one of the closest weekend box office races of the past few months, there was a near three-way tie for the top spot, as Date Night, Clash of the Titans, and How to Train Your Dragon finished within $1.7 million of each other. Date Night took the top spot honors, which also relates to toon fans, as it stars Tina Fey and Steve Carell, each stars of upcoming animated films — Carell stars in Universal’s Despicable Me, and Tina Fey, who also starred in Ponyo, will appear in DreamWorks’ Megamind. The CG friendly Clash of the Titans took the biggest drop, losing 50% of its audience from last week, where as DreamWorks Animation’s How to Train Your Dragon held strong in it’s third week.
