New trailer and poster for Despicable Me 2

The minions are back

Despicable Me 2 isn’t scheduled for release until 2013, but that hasn’t stopped Universal getting the drop on their competitors by releasing an early teaser trailer as well as a new poster for the animated sequel.

But how do you tease a film without showing the audience a scrap of actual footage, or giving away so much as a single plot detail? You rope in some of your most loveable characters, and get them to sing a song!

Enter the minions, who proceed to perform Barbara Ann by The Beach Boys, in their own inimitable style. Well, we say inimitable, but you’ll probably spend the rest of the morning pissing your colleagues off with your own rendition…

Check out the new teaser below…

So there you have it. We know absolutely nothing more about the film than we did before we watched the trailer, but it put a smile on our faces nevertheless. And you can’t say much fairer than that on a Friday!

Featuring the vocal talents of Steve Carell, Jason Segel and Al Pacino, Despicable Me 2 will open in the UK on 28 June 2013. In the meantime, you can see the new poster below...

What classic tune would you like the minions to cover next? Suggestions below, please.

      Ah the minions, funny wee buggers, they were great in the first movie, my 2nd favourite cgi/animation characters, only bested to Mike Wazowski.

      Hahaha, brilliant, so funny! That has just made our entire office belly laugh. Great start to a Friday morning and genuinely excited at the idea of a sequel next summer :-)

      I wonder if they'll manage to make it as good as the first one, which was genuinely vastly entertaining for people of all ages. Just like a Pixar film should be apart from it not being a Pixar film.
