Despicable Me 2 Giveaway!

Enter to win a Despicable Me 2 Giveaway from

Did your family fall in love with Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me in 2010?

Well, you weren’t alone; it grossed more than $540 million and became the 10th-biggest animated motion picture in U.S. history. The sequel, Despicable Me 2, hits theaters on July 3rd. It’s time for Minion madness!

I don’t know about your family, but my kids have not stopped bugging me about seeing Despicable Me 2 since they saw the trailer a few months ago. Chris Meledandri and his genius filmmaking team have created a comedy adventure featuring the return of super-villain Gru (Steve Carell), his sassy girls, the goofy and hilarious Minions…plus a host of new and outrageously funny characters.

Despicable Me 2 stars the voices of Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Benjamin Bratt, Miranda Cosgrove, Russell Brand, Steve Coogan, Ken Jeong, Elsie Fisher, Dana Gaier, Moises Arias.
