Universal opens its sequel Despicable Me 2 on July 3, 2013. Steve Carell is back in the lead with Kristen Wiig and Al Pacino joining him in the voice cast. The original pic from Chris Meladandri’s Illumination Entertainment was a big hit, grossing $543M worldwide in 2010 and spawning an Orlando theme park ride Despicable Me Minion Mayhem, based on Gru’s cute little yellow henchman. The latest movie wrapped production at the same time Illumination began prepping a third film in the series, a Minions spinoff set for December 2014.
