ARCTIC CIRCLE - DAY
Snow and ice as far as the eye can see. What looks like a
windowless MILITARY BASE surrounded by barbed wire fences
sits in the middle of the wasteland.
TOP SECRET RESEARCH LABORATORY. ARCTIC CIRCLE.
At the GUARD GATE, two RUSSIAN GUARDS play poker using an
overturned barrel as a table.
Russian Guard 1 shows a five of diamonds... and four Aces.
The other Guard folds. Russian Guard 1 LAUGHS and drags in
the pile of coins.
While he SPEAKS IN RUSSIAN and does a celebratory dance, the
coins fly up into the air. Russian Guard 1 stops dancing and
sees that the coins are gone. He accuses the other Guard of
stealing them. Russian Guard 2 swears he didn’t take them.
Russian Guard 1 grabs a shovel and wields it menacingly,
until it flies up into the air. They both look up to see
where it’s gone. Then the metal barrel they were using as a
table flies up, knocking them over.
Russian Guard 2 looks up to see a GIGANTIC MAGNET SHIP
LOWERING DOWN FROM ABOVE AND HOVERING OVER THE LABORATORY.
A watchtower guard shouts. A door below opens as a bunch of
Guards run out and point their guns at the magnet ship.
Then...WOOSH! All of their guns are pulled up towards the
ship, including the guards themselves, who are strapped to
A SNOWMOBILE lifts off the ground and flies up to the magnet.
Other vehicles and small buildings begin to pull away from
THE ENTIRE LAB STARTS TO GET PULLED UP OUT OF THE GROUND.
CLANK! The lab makes contact with the ship. It flies up and
down, shaking the scientists and guards off. They fall to
the ground. The magnet ship flies away with their lab,
vehicles, and weapons.
The remaining guards and scientists are strewn across the
snow with the remnants of the damaged base. We see a portapotty
door open. A Confused Guard is sitting on the can
reading a newspaper, having missed the entire incident. He
closes the door.

AVL HEADQUARTERS - NIGHT
SECURITY FOOTAGE of the research station named PX LABS being
carried away by the magnet ship plays on the screens at AVL
We see the back of several heads watching the footage.
There’s a heavy sigh.
Three weeks and we’re still no
closer to cracking this?
Right... bring him in.
SUBURBAN STREET - DAY
Gru steps toward camera, holding some sort of menacing gun,
which he loads and cocks. He pulls the trigger, which shoots
out an inflatable unicorn balloon.
Smiling, he ties it to the windowsill next to some others.
GRU’S BACKYARD - DAY
A banner reads:
"Happy Birthday Agnes!" and a massive
backyard party is in full swing. The yard is decorated with
pink balloons and streamers, and a BOUNCY HOUSE shaped like a
AGNES and several other LITTLE GIRLS slide down a slide.
They are all dressed as princesses, but Agnes is dressed as a
princess riding a unicorn.
This is the best party EVER!!!
Edith, dressed as a ninja, emerges from beneath a table and
climbs across the monkey bars as a series of jousts, blades,
and boxing gloves come up from the ground underneath her.
She jumps down, narrowly avoiding a bear trap.
DESPICABLE ME 2 CINCO & KEN DRAFT 3.
Two LITTLE GIRLS fish in a small kiddie pool. One of the
girls pulls up a toy duck and then razzes the other girl, but
then a LIVE PIRANHA jumps out and eats the toy duck.
A BOY and a GIRL sword fight. The Boy does a bunch of fancy
moves. The Girl waits for him to finish and then pounds him
on the head with a club.
