Despicable Me

In theaters July 9

Carell voices the bumbling supervillain Gru in this animated family comedy. Gru's master plot — steal the moon! — is derailed when he's forced to babysit for three orphaned little girls. The first film from animation studio Illumination Entertainment, this flick promises gags, thrills and heartwarming toddler-supervillain bonding — although if it's anything short of adorable, whoever picked that title is going to have big regrets.

Despicable Me is the fourth animated film to be released in 3-D this year; others include Shrek Forever After and Toy Story 3
