Trailer Time: Despicable Me 3 Trailer #2 (2017) *Of COURSE He Has a Twin Brother*

I really liked the first Despicable Me a whole lot more than I thought I would.  Despicable Me 2 was just a blast and boosted me into Minion Mania!  Then Minions came out, and I was over the whole thing and was hoping it would all just…..aaaaand Gru has a twin brother.  His name is Dru.  They look like pudgier versions of the Woody Harrelson twins introduced in Now You See Me 2.  That was a franchise killer.  Just saying.  Despicable Me 3 releases June 30, 2017.

Trailer Time: The Big Short Trailer #2 (2015) *Batman vs. Banks!!!*

I have a brother and a bunch of friends who talk the language of finance with fluency.  They know their stuff.  I have, after years of consideration, decided that I have a special form of autism that applies whenever dollar signs come into play.  I not only barely understand it, but it interests me about as much as the mating habits of ferrets.  That being said, if Michael Lewis is writing a book about money, I’ll read it like a Grisham novel.  Moneyball, Liar’s Poker, Flashboys and The Big Short are all somehow so gripping, despite my lack of interest in the subject matter that I could not recommend them more.  For The Big Short, I was originally taken aback that Adam McKay was the director because he’s Anchorman, Talladega Nights, comedy director Adam McKay.  But maybe you need a comedy director to tell this incredibly weird story and the talent he has! Pitt, Carrell, Bale, Gosling, Leo and more!  This looks fantastic and is going to be a big player come Oscar time.  Read Variety’s synopsis and get ready to play some more Moneyball come December 11th.
