Double bill of animated features. In 'Despicable Me' (2010), trying to outdo his main rival Vector (voice of Jason Segel), serial villain Gru (Steve Carell) hatches a plan to steal the moon, aided by his army of genetically altered corn pops.
About to set his dastardly plan in motion, and bristling with his arsenal of freeze-rays and sci-fi gadgetry, all goes according to plan until the arrival at his door of three little orphan girls, Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Agnes (Elsie Fisher) and Edith (Dana Gaier), in search of a father figure.
In 'Despicable Me 2' (2013), now living a life of domestic bliss in suburbia with adopted daughters Margo, Agnes and Edith, Gru's world is turned upside down when he finds himself abducted by agent Lucy Wilde (Kristen Wiig) of the Anti-Villain League on the orders of boss Silas Ramsbottom (Steve Coogan).
All is not what it seems, however, for with the world threatened by the new and dastardly supervillain known as Eduardo (Benjamin Bratt), it falls to the unique talents of Gru and his Minions to step up to the plate and finally save the day.
