Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment invite you to their first 3D CGI movie, “I’m a Despicable Me.” Produced by CHRIS MELEDANDRI (Ice Age, Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hears a Who!), I am a little villain is the story of the greatest super-villain who finds his godfather when three innocent little girls enter his life.
In a beautiful suburb surrounded by white huts and rose bushes, there is a black house lying in the middle of a deserted lawn. This house hides a terrible secret, unknowing and unpredictable by anyone in the neighbors. Surrounded by an army of minions, the evil Gru (voice – Steve Carell) is plotting the robbery of the century, of astronomical proportions. He’s going to steal the moon! (yes, month !!).
Gru has a special pleasure in committing all kinds of bastards. Armed with an arsenal of rays that shrinks, freezes, and helped by a fleet of war vehicles in a permanent alert state, Gru harvests everything in his path. That’s until the day he gropes with the giant will of three orphan girls looking at him and seeing what nobody has seen before: a potential father! The worst villain in the world has overcome the greatest challenge in his life: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.
