DESPICABLE ME

USA, 2010 (MIFF 2010, Next Gen)

Director: Pierre Coffin, Chris Renaud, Sergio Pablos

Just because he's a bad guy doesn't mean he's a bad guy.

Having to suffer the indignity of being the world's number two supervillain is gruelling enough for Gru - a sinister, nasty stick-in-the-mud who's planning on stealing the moon - but when he inherits an orphaned group of girls who want him to play daddy, all the freeze-rays, shrink-rays and henchmen in the world won't save him.

Universal's dastardly new 3D CGI adventure romps into the secret underground lair of Gru and his goggle-clad minions as he tries to take over the world, take care of the kids and take the number one supervillain spot from his arch enemy.

Features the diabolical vocal talents of Steve Carell, Russell Brand, Will Arnett and Jason Segel.
