His fashion sense is dated, his devious villain tactics may be a bit unconventional, but you can’t deny he’s got style. Who is he? He’s Balthazar Bratt, the latest criminal that will wreck havoc in “Despicable Me 3.”
Illumination Entertainment released the trailer for the latest film in the animated franchise, which sees the return of Steve Carell as super villain Gru, Kristen Wiig as his wife Lucy and the adorable and wild Minions.
This time around “Grucy” (Lucy’s couple name for them that Gru hates) will go up against the nefarious villain Balthazar, voiced by “South Park” co-creator Trey Parker. Balthazar is a former child star who’s turned to a life of international crime and is still obsessed with the character he portrayed in the ‘80s. The formidable nemesis uses a Rubik’s Cube as a weapon, has a powerful keytar, moonwalks and dresses like a rockstar.
“That’s not a monster… That’s a man wearing shoulder pads!” yells a government official.
Gru’s three adopted daughters Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Dana Gaier) and Agnes (Nev Scharrel) are also set to return, along with Russell Brand as Dr. Nefario.
The animated picture is directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda and co-directed by Eric Guillon. The script is written by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio.
“Despicable Me 3” arrives to theaters on June 30, 2017. Check out the trailer below, set to Michael Jackson’s “Bad.”
