Megamind Movie by Dreamworks

Megamind is an upcoming 3D animated movie produced by Dreamworks. The film was previously titled Master Mind, and later on Oober mind, before being retitled to Megamind. Megamind is directed by Tom McGrath (who once brought us Madagascar and its sequel) and is borrowing the voices of Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill and Tina Fey. Dreamworks will release the movie Megamind on November 5, 2010.
The story revolves around a supervillain who unwillingly becomes the new acclaimed hero.

Here's a first look at Megamind (Will Ferrell) and Metro Man (Brad Pitt):

"When super villain Megamind (Will Ferrell) defeats his archrival Metro Man (Brad 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 purpose for him. So he creates a new superhero rival, Titan (Jonah Hill). Unfortunately for him and the world, the new hero wants to be a super villain too. The new villain begins his rampage, and Megamind sets out to stop him, beginning a path to redemption in the process."

Supervillains usually make for more interesting characters than superheroes because they don't have the same moral limitations. So I'm quite glad that the focus of this new Dreamworks is on Megamind. Megamind will transform into a hero, but I'm sure he'll a kind of nasty funny superhero!

Yeap, I'm already fan of Megamind!
