Despicable Me 3

Pierre Coffin, director of the two previous films and voice of the Minions, returns to co-direct the third installment starring Kristen Wiig, Steve Carell and South Park's Trey Parker.

Gru (Carell) faces off against Balthazar Bratt (Parker), a former child star who grows up to become obsessed with the character he played in the '80s, and gets into some sibling rivalry when he meets his long lost twin brother, Dru (also Carell).

Despicable Me 3 / Reviews

The Despicable Me films aren’t exactly Pixar classics, but they’re sweet-n-simple stories about a bad guy who learned to be good for the sake of his three adopted daughters.

Unfortunately, Despicable Me 3 exists only to sell out.
