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).

The key members of the family, the Minions, are not so prominent in this film (probably because they...
