Despicable Me A U film should be suitable for audiences aged four years and over, although it is impossible to predict what might upset any particular child.

U films should be set within a positive framework and should offer reassuring counterbalances to any violence, threat or horror. If a work is particularly suitable for pre-school children, this will be indicated in the ratings info.

The Despicable Me series has been a massive success for Dreamworks, and of course the little yellow Minions have been part of that success, they get a sequel movie later this summer and today be get the first trailer.

The first Minions movie went on the gross $1.5 Billion globally so a sequel was perhaps inevitable, and it looks like the world of the Minions is going to come crashing in on the Despicable Me world as we get to see how Gru (the evil mastermind) teamed up with them.

The movie stars the voice talent of Steve Carrell as the central character of Gru and Pierre Coffin and the (voice!) of the Minions.

With director Kyle Balda behind the movie who is a veteran of the franchise we should have a good film on our hands, he is assisted by new comer to the series Brad Ableson.

The trailer os of course funny, and the film makers have an incredible talent for making us laugh with just the characters actions.

The film is set for a release later this summer on 10th June.
