The first teaser trailer for DreamWorks Animation’s Megamind is out and besides a star-studded cast, it looks like superhero fun for the whole family. DreamWorks Animation is truly giving the competition a run for its money this year with three releases (the other two being How To Train Your Dragon & Shrek Forever After) to overwhelm Pixar’s big fish (Toy Story 3). It will be interesting to see how everything plays out considering the first feature hits theaters this weekend with critics and bloggers drooling over How To Train Your Dragon.

Megamind features the voice work of Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, and Ben Stiller. The great Hans Zimmer composed the film’s score, which is even more reason to get excited. Latino Review provides the film’s synopsis:

“When super villain Megamind (Ferrell) defeats his archrival Metro Man (Pitt), the world should be his oyster. But instead Megamind falls into total despair. It turns out that life without a rival is life without a point for him. So, he creates a new superhero rival, Titan (Hill). Unfortunately, the new hero wants to be a super villain, too. Caught in the middle, star reporter Roxanne Ritchi (Fey) asks the tough questions: Who can we turn to? Who has what it takes to stand up to this menace? Who will defend the innocent? Megamind! That’s who.”

That would actually make a great plot for The Joker in Batman 3, if they make an unlikely decision to return the character. Regardless, the story seems quite different from the trailer, which is promoting itself as more like The Mask than what you read above. Will Ferrell acting like a pompous, attention-loving maniac is pretty appealing and has worked in the past (Anchorman). With a great cast around him, it should be yet another hit for animation. Check out the teaser below:

Water Cooler Trivia: After this weekend, DreamWorks Animation will have released twice as many films (20/10) in three fewer years than Pixar.

Megamind hits theaters November 5, 2010. The movie should cap off a successful year for DreamWorks, which also includes How To Train Your Dragon (March 26) and Shrek Forever After (May 21).

  1. I agree, Pixar is king of the animation world. And even though Dreamworks has released twice as many films as Pixar, it doesn't really matter. It's quantity over quality that counts.
    As for this trailer, I'm not a huge Will Ferrell fan, and this teaser doesn't offer much to be interested in. I plot sounds cool, but I'm not seeing it in the trailer. Also, I like Brad Pitt, but the plot synopsis makes it sound like his characters killed off pretty early on, so I get the feeling they're just using his name for marketing.

  2. I agree with you both…Pixar FTW…quality over quantity. But there are more than one way to be successful, and as much as we hate to admit it, financially DreamWorks kicks the crap out of Pixar by over $1 billion.

  3. Hah, yeah “quality over quantity”….I got my q-words backwards. I fail :P

  4. Gah! this has a pretty promising concept as well as a cool cast though i hate that dreamworks constantly relies on retro music and dancing to be funny or entertaining. See: Shrek, Shark Tale, Madagascar, twice in Monsters vs. Aliens. The part when the president dances and plays keyboard and when the cockroach guy dances to get past the security thing. Not comedy. I hope dreamworks aren't surprised when they don't win oscars.

  5. If I understand correctly, Dreamworks isn't under Disney's wing correct? Whereas Pixar is. So I say, good for Dreamworks. Anyone that can give Disney a run for their money is only helping to increase the quality of animated films available to us. That aside, I hate Will Ferrel, but the premise of this story sounds like it could be fun and a little bit profound. I'm looking forward to it,
