Despicable Me 2 (U)

Sat 11 January 11.00am,

Gru and his minions are recruited to trounce an evil super villain in this hilarious sequel to the hit animation.

Last time we met shiny-domed, pointy-nosed, spindly-legged megalomaniac Gru, 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 of the Anti-Villain League and whisked to the organisation’s HQ in her cool underwater car. Here the League’s supremo, Silas Ramsbottom, explains that Gru’s detailed knowledge of the evil mind is needed to help defeat a sinister new supervillain named Eduardo. What’s more, he’ll get to play with lots of great new gadgets and weapons!
