The US got Despicable Me ages ago and we’ve heard wonderful things about the movie, especially about the minions who have found their way into my post! Despicable Me is a 3d animation by Universal Pictures and features voices from Steve Carell (The 40 Year Old Virgin), Jason Segel (Forgetting Sarah Marshall), Russell Brand (Get Him to the Greek) and Julie Andrews (Mary Poppins).

In a happy suburban neighbourhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbours, hidden deep beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by an army of tireless, little yellow minions, we discover Gru (Steve Carell), planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon (Yes, the moon!) Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. One of the world’s greatest super-villains has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.

Unfortunately we’ve still got ages to wait as Despicable Me isn’t released in the UK until 15th October. In the meantime, here’s a couple of new posters for the movie. If you’ve missed the trailers for it, you can check it out here.
