This bank holiday weekend marked the annual Bupa Great Manchester Run and this year the event featured some very special participants from Universal’s upcoming DESPICABLE ME 2 … the Minions!
The Minions had a lovely time at the run, they jogged with other runners and had their pictures taken with some of the athletes. There was even a giant Minion hot air balloon!
“Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s worldwide blockbuster Despicable Me entertained audiences around the globe in 2010, grossing more than $540 million and becoming the 10th-biggest animated motion picture in U.S. history. In summer 2013, get ready for more Minion madness in Despicable Me 2. Chris Meledandri and his acclaimed filmmaking team create an all-new comedy adventure featuring the return of (former?) super-villain Gru (Steve Carell), his adorable girls, the unpredictably hilarious Minions…and a host of new and outrageously funny characters.
Featuring the voice talents of Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Al Pacino, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Elsie Fisher, Russell Brand, Ken Jeong, Steve Coogan, Nasim Pedrad, Moises Arias. Directed byChris Renaud & Pierre Coffin.”
