Question: It is 1968, and in the trailer it says "42 B.G" which 42 years later would be 2010, which is the first film. But the ending of this movie implies that the minions have been working for Gru since he was a child. So why is "42 years Before Gru"?


Chosen answer: The writers wanted to keep Gru's cameo at the end of the film a secret for the fans of the franchise. So, saying "42 Years B.G" (before Gru) in the trailer doesn't give the surprise away.
