The film is helmed by Tim Hill, director of the blockbuster Alvin and the Chipmunks and produced by Chris Meledandri’s Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me). Despicable Me Gru (Steve Carell) is your average guy, at least that’s what everyone else thinks. He has a secret that is known by very few; he’s a criminal mastermind! He hasn’t been in the news for a long time, since he stole the Times Square JumboTron. He wants to be in the news once again and be recognised for the genius he is, to do so he’s about to steal something big. Something very, very big; the Moon! To steal the moon he comes up with an ingenious plan. With the use of a shrink ray, Gru is able to shrink the moon, but before he can do so, a cunning super nerd named Vector (Jason Segel) steals the shrink ray from him! Now he must battle Vector in order to become the super villain that he wants to be known as. Gru adopts three young girls to help him with his plan in stealing the shrink ray back, but doesn’t count on the fact that he may soon become a father to the girls, and have a moral decision whether to live his dream, or become a good dad. The Grinch You Better Watch Out! He’s green … he’s mean … and he hates Christmas! The Grinch is a bad tempered hairy green creature, who lives inside a cave atop Mount Crumpit, overlooking the village of Whoville. As the Who’s of Whoville frantically prepare for their yuletide celebrations, The Grinch decides to put a stop to Christmas once and for all, and steals all their presents and decorations on Christmas Eve .. only to finally come to learn that the true spirit of Christmas goes much deeper than tinsel and toys. The hilarious Jim Carrey spectacularly brings The Grinch to life in this magical live-action comedy which is based on the wonderfully quirky and well-loved book Dr Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas .
