MegaMind's MegaExclusive Teaser Trailer
Ferrell, Fey, Hill and Pitt get animated

18 March 2010  |  Written by Alastair Plumb

Master mind, Oobermind, and now MegaMind: whatever you’ve known him as, one thing’s for certain, he’s pretty damn evil and stuff, and he’s got a really big blue head (and ergo, a really big brain). Oh, and he’s being voiced by Will Ferrell. Awesome!

The latest Dreamworks piece, it’s due to hit our screens December 3 this year (we know, nine goshdarn months away) and this is the latest, oh so very bloody exclusive teaser trailer, just for you.
 
The basic premise of the film (for those of you not in the know) is that a big ol’ supervillain (Ferrell as MegaMind) accidentally defeats his age old nemesis Metro Man (voiced by none other than Brad motherflippin’ Pitt) and finds himself at a loss at what to do.

Cue much wailing and the gnashing of the teeth, until he has a clever idea of creating a new good guy enemy – called Titan (played by Jonah Hill) who ends up going… bad as well. And MegaMind has to do something about it… and be a good guy in the process. Urgh. Nasty.
 
With additional voice talents coming in the form of Tina Fey (swoon) , it’s got to be good. Got to be. Seriously, you had us at Will Ferrell.

RE: You're kidding right?
If trailers are still putting the best bits in to entice people to the film, this is going to be about as good as dying horribly.   "You're kidding, right?" My thoughts exactly. More

RE: You're kidding right?
'Goshdarn' and 'motherflippin''? Were you trying to make it sound contrived and ridiculous or was that just a happy coincidence? More

You're kidding right?
Exactly how I feel about this trailer. What, are we supposed to laugh at that? Hey, the movie could be good but, come on! More

RE:
Yeah me too!! It could have been great like the very underated Mystery Men!!!  This just looks like the typical Dreamworks style of over the top movement, loud noises, flashing lights and a god awful dance number to a terrible black eyed peas song. All style, no substance.   And...Will Ferrell is really starting to shit me!! More

Not really feeling this one yet, I was more excited when it was a Ben Stiller vehicle. More
