Megamind teaser trailer online
The trailer for Megamind doesn't really do much for me, but maybe it will for you. I feel it's a showcase for one actor's voice, and tells us that this actor will be playing the leading role, and that there's going to be comedy where he thinks he's great, but he's not.
That's about it for the teaser. So while some are shouting about how great it is, I'm feeling decidedly underwhelmed.
Here's the blurb for Megamind:
Megamind is the most brilliant supervillain the world has ever known. And the least successful. Over the years, he has tried to conquer Metro City in every imaginable way. Each attempt, a colossal failure thanks to the caped superhero known as 'Metro Man,' an invincible hero until the day Megamind actually kills him in the throes of one of his botched evil plans.
Suddenly, Megamind has no purpose. A supervillain without a superhero. He realizes that achieving his life's ambition is the worst thing that ever happened to him. Megamind decides that the only way out of his rut is to create a new hero opponent called 'Titan,' who promises to be bigger, better and stronger than Metro Man ever was.
Pretty quickly Titan starts to think it's much more fun to be a villain than a good guy. Except Titan doesn't just want to rule the world, he wants to destroy it. Now, Megamind must decide: can he defeat his own diabolical creation? Can the world's smartest man make the smart decision for once? Can the evil genius become the unlikely hero of his own story?
You know that blurb reads much better than the teaser suggests, and I wonder if they should have held off on the teaser in order to deliver something a lot stronger and that showed more of the plot, after all this falls way short in my mind. It's just a vehicle for Will Ferrell to talk over for a few moments. See what you think:
The full film sounds much better and delivers a nice twist to the super-villain idea, but not the teaser. I wonder why they even bothered.
