Briefly: Universal is getting in on the animation industry with a film called Despicable Me. See the trailer here for the film, which presumably follows the misadventures of a criminal mastermind starring Steve Carell, Danny McBride, and Julie Andrews, among others.
I hope the film is good. The trailer was very odd; the animation is very fresh and stylized although it seems like they may be going a bit overboard with the slapstick comedy. We'll see come its release.
