'Tis the season for animated pictures! With "Wreck-It Ralph" receiving glowing reviews, "Mars Needs Moms" being heralded as the best 3D film since "Avatar" (despite bombing), and "Hotel Transylvania" enduring at the box office, why not make room for one more?

New trailers were released Wednesday morning for "Despicable Me 2," scheduled to come out July 3, 2013. The movie will act as a sequel to the highly successful "Despicable Me." The original film was released in July 2010 with a $60 million opening weekend.

"Despicable Me 2" features many of the favorite voice actors from the first film, such as Steve Carell and Russell Brand, and introduces Al Pacino as the movie's main villain. The film is produced by Illumination Entertainment and distributed by Universal Pictures.
