Despicable Me 2: what would you make your minions do?

  • 19 June 2013
Despicable Me premiere

Friendly evil genius Gru and his little yellow minions are coming back to the big screen: Despicable Me 2 is out later this month.

So we're sending Martin to catch up with the cast at the London premiere.

The film stars the voice of Steve Carell as Gru, the loveable super-villain who adopts three girls from an orphanage.

We asked what you would do if, like Gru, you had hundreds of yellow minions to carry out your every request.

Here's a selection of what you had to say.
