'Despicable Me 2' Trailer Features Eminem, Kristen Wiig (Video)

Steve Carell returns as Gru -- but with some new duties -- in the sequel to the 2010 hit animation.

Despicable Me 2 - P 2012

Loveable villain Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) is back in an all-new trailer for Despicable Me 2, released Tuesday. 

Gru is getting some surprises in his life. One is Margo (Miranda Cosgrove) texting a boy. The other comes in the form of Agent Lucy (Kristen Wiig) of the Anti-Villain League. 

After Lucy uses a lipstick taser on Gru, she carts him off to a secret underwater meeting, where he is asked to help take down a fellow villain. Of course, he gets some cool new cars, gadgets and weapons that would make even James Bond drool.

In the two-minute trailer, set to Eminem's "Without Me" (a potentially controversial but oddly fitting choice), viewers get a taste of the same comedy that made the first film so popular. Namely, the minions.

Universal's Despicable Me 2 is set to be released July 3.
