DESPICABLE ME 2

On his appearance on the Empire Podcast this year, Steve Carrell admitted he doesn’t mind that his character, Gru, is not really what the audience are going to see. The legions of kids are there not for the evil mastermind’s pointy nose and ridiculous voice, but for the minions, which explains both the spin-off movie they’re getting (with Sandra Bullock voicing another genius with plans for global domination) and these seemingly never-ending yellow-tinged tie-ins.

Straight away, your little one will want a ‘Fart Blaster’ (don’t worry, it’s banana-flavoured) ($39.99)

then a mind-bogglingly creepy armchair ($79.99)

then this appalling swimming-aid-shaped outfit (£34.99)

as well as a bobble hat ($21.99)

and, if they’re feeling generous to the big guy, a gruesome Gru mask (£32.99).

I was in the States just before the first Hobbit came out and spent more time in Denny's eating from their separate Hobbit menu than I probably should have. I did acquire a taste for Pumpkin pie though, so every cloud. More
