Families are delighted as they react to the Minions: The Rise of Gru trailer at Cineworld

You know the saying, it's good to be bad? Well, that certainly applies to the latest animated extravaganza Minions: The Rise of Gru. Steve Carell returns to voice the irrepressible baddie Gru in this sequel to the blockbusting Minions movie, which mixes things up by taking everything back to the 1970s.

Rest assured, the madcap Minions haven't changed at all, poised to delight families with their hilarious slapstick antics and unmistakeable nonsense language. The Minions sequel also introduces the anarchic villain's collective The Vicious 6, boasting voices from cult B-movie actors Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren.

With Minions set to be one of the biggest animated adventures of the summer, we invited families to Cineworld to film their response to the trailer. We don't want to spoil it, but you can expect some delighted reactions and plenty of laughs as Gru and his Minions unleash wonderful chaos once again. Check out the video below.
