Illumination presents: 3-movie collection [videorecording]

Videos and DVDs
Triple collection of animated comedies from Illumination. In 'Sing' (2016), Buster Moon (voice of Matthew McConaughey) is the highly optimistic koala proprietor of a venerable theatre. But as the splendour of his theatre begins to fade and Buster's life ambition with it, he must quickly devise a way to save his playhouse. Despite the reservations of his sheep friend Eddie (John C. Reilly), Buster decides to hold a singing contest in the hopes of raising enough money and attention to save his ailing theatre. With most of the town signing up to take part, the most promising contestants are Rosita (Reese Witherspoon), an overworked pig housewife, Mike (Seth MacFarlane), an arrogant, larger-than-life mouse, Ashley (Scarlett Johansson), a punk-rock porcupine, Meena (Tori Kelly), a stage-frightened elephant, and Johnny (Taron Egerton), a British gorilla pressured by his father's criminal exploits. How will they fare? And will Buster be able to save his theatre? 'The Secret Life of Pets' (2016) follows the adventures had by a group of New York pets after their owners leave the house. Pampered terrier Max (Louis C.K.) is shocked when his owner brings home a huge, sloppy mongrel named Duke (Eric Stonestreet) from the dog pound. An intense rivalry quickly sparks between the two pets, with a jealous Max desperate to regain the attention he once had. However, the duo must put their differences to one side when cunning rabbit Snowball (Kevin Hart) begins to build an army of neglected ex-pets intent on getting revenge on all happily-owned pets and their owners. With the help of the other animals in his Manhattan building, Max must put a stop to Snowball's evil schemes before it's too late. Finally, 'Despicable Me' (2010) follows an arch-criminal who has a change of heart. Trying to outdo his main rival Vector (Jason Segel), serial villain Gru (Steve Carell) hatches a plan to steal the moon, aided by his army of genetically altered corn pops. About to set his dastardly plan in motion, and bristling with his arsenal of freeze-rays and sci-fi gadgetry, all goes according to plan until the arrival at his door of three little orphan girls, Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Agnes (Elsie Fisher) and Edith (Dana Gaier), in search of a father figure.
