What can we expect from the coming Despicable Me 3 Movie


If the first two Despicable Me movies are of any indication, then we all know we are sure to get plenty of good comedy. Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig are once again leading in this third installment in the trilogy. One thing I researched is that Steve Carell will be playing dual roles. In this third movie, Carell’s character (Gru) has a long lost identical twin (Dru) and there will be some type of sibling rivalry. A double dose of Steve Carell generally means a double dose of comedy. The Despicable Me franchise is known for adding A-list actor(s) and actress(s) in each of its new movies to give each one a different spark. This time around they have added South Park creator Trey Parker (Balthazar Bratt) into the mix who I believe will be the villain. I am truly excited they brought Trey Parker in on this movie. I expect there to possibly be even more adult comedy in this third film than any of the first two movies. One things is for sure, when you hear the names Trey Parker, Despicable Me 3 and Steve Carell you think comedy.


I feel the Despicable Me movies have always been a family oriented franchise. Children and adults of all ages can come and enjoy these movies. Having a South Park creator come aboard this third installment, you can guarantee there will be more humor geared towards adults. Although this movie is rated PG, I am sure that there will not be a lack of adult humor that parents can enjoy. For some, the addition of Trey Parker may be nervous to let their children see this third installment. However, with the rating of PG, I feel very strongly that this will once again be a movie for all ages. You can read more on: Despicable Me 2017.


I expect to come out of this movie having learned something. In the previous two movies, there was a moral lesson that was taught throughout the film and I am sure this movie won’t disappoint in that area. In the first movie, we learned that Gru needed to be happy with himself. Constantly trying to gain his mother’s approval was what kept getting him into trouble. The girls came along and taught him to be happy with himself and to love others. The second movie continued the theme about loving others as well as adding the theme of protecting your family. For this third movie and the introduction of Dru, I can expect to come away with a family-oriented lesson as well.


Will this be the third and final film in the Despicable Me movie franchise? In my opinion no. Why you may ask? The first Despicable Me spin-off movie, Minions, surpassed both Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2 combined, making over $1 billion dollars. As long as this movie does well at the box office like their spin-off movies, I can almost guarantee this will not be the last Despicable Me movie. Speaking for myself, I can only hope not, but once again I could be very, very wrong.

Video Game Consoles

A video game console is a device whose primary function is to allow users to play video games on a monitor or home theater. Video game consoles are different than arcade games or home computers. Originally, video game consoles were designed only to play games. They can now be used to play CDs, DVDs, connect to the internet or watch TV channels.

Early Video Game Consoles

The first consoles acted like computers that specifically ran video games. Many of the early consoles could only run one game. As the technology became more advanced, the consoles were created to accept different game cartridges. You could plug the console into a television to display the game. Controllers that plugged into the console let players control the action. Early controllers were often joysticks or trackballs.

Modern Video Game Controllers

The newer controllers are as varied as the modern consoles. Today, controllers are wireless. They don’t contain long wires that can trip users or pull the console off a shelf. Each brand of video game console usually only works with the same brand’s controllers.

Steering wheels may be used for games that involve driving. These have motion detectors that sense when you’re turning. Buttons on the wheels control functions such as speed.

Dance pads are pressure-sensitive surfaces that you stand on to control the game with your feet. These are ideal for using with dance games like Dance Dance Revolution.

The Nintendo Wii balance board makes playing games that involve surfing or skateboarding more realistic. It can also serve as a scale or give feedback about the player’s equilibrium, which is helpful when you’re playing fitness games.

Movement trackers use cameras to detect the player’s actions. These don’t require controllers at all, so they leave your hands free. Motion controllers include a stationary motion sensor that sits somewhere near the TV or monitor. The handheld controllers communicate wirelessly with the motion sensor. This lets players mimic the movements of their video game character while holding the controller. All of the modern video game consoles have some type of motion control.

Classic controllers are held in both hands. They have buttons and may have a tracking ball or joystick as well.

Popular Video Game Consoles

The most common brands of video game consoles are Sony Playstation, Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox. The manufacturers improve these consoles every few years. The more recent consoles allow players to interact with each other over the internet while playing games. They can also play other types of media.

Handheld video game consoles contain the controls, speakers and display screen in one unit. These portable systems allow you to play games wherever you go. Some handheld consoles can have the games streamed wirelessly from the main console. You can also download apps that let you use your smartphone to control the main console.

If you’re a gamer, you may want the latest video game console. Some people also prefer to get their hands on vintage consoles as a throwback to their youth. The newest consoles tend to be the most expensive immediately after launching. You’ll often see a price drop if you wait a few months before buying it.
