Gru and his minions are recruited to trounce an evil supervillain in this hilarious sequel to the hit animation. Last time we met shiny-domed, pointy-nosed, spindly-legged megalomaniac Gru (Steve Carell), he was tamed by a trio of adorable orphan girls. But Gru's life of happy domesticity as an adoptive father isn't going to last. He's abducted by Lucy Wilde (Kristen Wiig) of the Anti-Villain League and whisked to the organisation's HQ in her cool underwater car. Here the League's supremo, Silas Ramsbottom (Steve Coogan), explains that Gru's detailed knowledge of the evil mind is needed to help defeat a sinister new supervillain named Eduardo (Al Pacino). What's more, he'll get to play with lots of great new gadgets and weapons! Steve Coogan and Al Pacino join the starry voice cast of this sequel to the much-loved 2010 box office smash. Expect to see plenty more of Gru's scene-stealing little yellow minions too!
