Megamind: November 5
Paramount Pictures releases this science-fiction comedy from DreamWorks Animation. Will Ferrell provides the voice of the title character, an evil genius whose plans are always thwarted by his opponent, Metro Man (voiced by Brad Pitt). Tom McGrath directed from a script by Alan J Schoolcraft and Brent Simons. Tina Fey, Jonah Hill, and David Cross round out the voice cast. The trailer makes the film look better than the company’s latest SHREK movie but not as good as HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON. Can it surpass Universal’s DESPICABLE ME, which also asked audiences to identify with a bad guy trying to enact incredible schemes? We’ll have to wait and see…
NOTE: This trailer from Comic-Con reveals more of the plot than the more familiar theatrical trailer.
Release date: November 5
