TO celebrate the release of one of the most eagerly anticipated animated sequels ever - Despicable Me 2 - the Wigan Evening Post and Empire Cinema, Robin Park, have teamed up to offer you the chance to win tickets to see the film in a fun and easy-to-enter competition.

We’ve got two family tickets (for two adults and two children) to give away and all you have to do is find Gru’s maniacal minions dotted about Friday’s Wigan Evening Post and tell us how many we’ve hidden away.

In the film Gru and his minions are recruited to trounce an evil supervillain. Last time we met shiny-domed, pointy-nosed, spindly-legged megalomaniac Gru (Steve Carell), he was tamed by a trio of adorable orphan girls.

But Gru’s life of happy domesticity as an adoptive father isn’t going to last. He’s abducted by Lucy Wilde (Kristen Wiig) of the Anti-Villain League and whisked to the organisation’s HQ in her cool underwater car.

Here the League’s supremo, Silas Ramsbottom (Steve Coogan), explains that Gru’s detailed knowledge of the evil mind is needed to help defeat a sinister new supervillain named Eduardo (Al Pacino). What’s more, he’ll get to play with lots of great new gadgets and weapons!

Email your entry - marking the subject field ‘Minions’ - to before Wednesday, July 3.

Usual competition rules apply.

If you aren’t lucky enough to win, you can book tickets to see the film by ringing the Empire ticket line on 08714 714 714.
