Despicable Me 2 script
Synopsis: Now that Gru (Steve Carell) has forsaken a life of crime to raise Margo, Agnes and Edith, he's trying to figure out how to provide for his new family. As he struggles with his responsibilities as a father, the Anti-Villain League -- an organization dedicated to fighting evil -- comes calling. The AVL sends Gru on a mission to capture the perpetrator of a spectacular heist, for who would be better than the world's greatest ex-villain to capture the individual who seeks to usurp his power.

EXT:
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.

TITLE CARD:
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

their guns.

A SNOWMOBILE lifts off the ground and flies up to the magnet.

Other vehicles and small buildings begin to pull away from

the ground.

Then--

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.

DESPICABLE ME 2 CINCO & KEN DRAFT 2.

INT:
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

Headquarters.

We see the back of several heads watching the footage.

There’s a heavy sigh.

SILAS:

Three weeks and we’re still no

closer to cracking this?

No response.

SILAS (CONT’D)

Right... bring him in.

LUCY (O.S.)

Yes, sir.

EXT:
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.

EXT:
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

castle.

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.

AGNES:

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.

EDITH:

Haha! Yeah!

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.
