Steve Carell returns once more as the voice of ex villain turned dad turned superhero Gru in "Despicable Me 2." Whilst the first movie showed Gru trying to live up to his evil image by stealing the moon, this time around Carell's character has to deal with more conventional issues. [UPSOT] The film also sees the return of Gru's mischievous yellow little helpers, the Minions, which proved a big hit with cinema audiences in 2010. And two bigger sized versions joined the actor during promotional interviews in London. However Carell warned us that Minions and interviews are two things that don't work well together. SOUNDBITE: Steve Carell, voice of Gru, saying (English); "You're going to interview the Minions? All I can say is good luck to you. This will not end well. That's, I'm just, I 'm not cursing it, but it's a bad idea. You should not do it." So was he right? Lets see. [UPSOT] Well, they weren't too bad after all. Even outrageous looking yellow cartoon characters can be on their best behaviour, when it comes down to it. What else they're up to you can find out for yourself, when "Despicable Me 2" opens in UK cinemas on June 28.
