On The Spot – Despicable Me 2 Australian Premiere

On Wednesday June 5, Event Cinemas Bondi Junction became Gru’s headquarters to celebrate the Australian premiere of the animated hit Despicable Me 2.

DM2-Premiere-8Regardless of all the State of Origin fever, lots of fans arrived early to get the best spots in the house as superstar Steve Carell alongside co-star Miranda Cosgrove were hosting the premiere.

Before the arrival of the two stars, some “yellow visitors” were greeting the fans, the media and the guests as the Minions hit the red carpet, dancing, playing with kids and posing for photos whilst waiting for their Boss Gru (Carell).

DM2-Premiere-2Around 6 pm fans welcomed Miranda Cosgrove, who was kind enough to stop for almost everyone along the way, posing for pictures and signing autographs for her loyal fan base.

Minutes later, the place went down as the Minions welcomed Steve Carell himself, who tried to stop for as many fans as possible, posing for pictures and signing on his way in. Unfortunately after a while, Mr. Carell was forced to skip some people as they were behind schedule for the film screening and his media commitments.

However, we were lucky enough to have a very cool chat with both stars, about the film and much more, and we must say that Steve Carell and Miranda Cosgrove are some of the nicest celebrities we’d ever had the chance to talk to. That’s the spirit!
