At the end of Despicable Me 2, one-time dastardly supervillain Felonious Gru (Carell) seemed to have hung up his ‘evil’ cape for good. Having settled in the ‘burbs with his feisty super agent wife (Wiig) and three adorable, unicorn-loving, adopted daughters, he’s now out to actively fight crime, not cause it. Until, that is, a long lost, enviably hirsute twin brother (also Carell) pops out of the woodwork to tempt Gru back to the dark side… Eagerly anticipated by everyone from toddlers to adults, this animated threequel also voice casts Trey Parker (co-creator of South Park and The Book Of Mormon) as an ’80s-obsessed baddie with truly villainous shoulder pads. As if that wasn’t enough, one final word will sell it to you: Minions!

The mass evacuation of more than 330,000 Allied troops from the beaches of Dunkirk in May 1940 was one of the most dramatic and pivotal episodes of the Second World War. In his latest feature, director Christopher Nolan (Interstellar, The Dark Knight trilogy) plunges viewers into the thick of it with what he describes as “the most visceral experiential two hours that audiences can hope for”.
Told from three points of view – land, sea and air – Dunkirk unfolds with a palpable sense of dread and tension, evoking the very human and immediate desire to survive.
With cinematography from Hoyte van Hoytema (Interstellar), a score from Hans Zimmer, and an all-star supporting cast that includes Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy and Mark Rylance, this is the must-see spectacle of the summer.
