Megamind trailer online

Megamind.jpgFinally we get to see a full Megamind trailer, which unfortunately doesn't tell us the story other than the opening set-up, or perhaps that's a good thing?

Watching the trailer and reading the blurb seem to suggest rather different stories, and the appearance of Brad Pitt as Metro Man doesn't seem like a role that will run for too long.

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?

So the bad guy turns into the good guy, saves the day and decides he actually kind of likes it. Perhaps.

The trailer shows little of the story, perhaps the run up to the final battle of the pair, but it's a great trailer none the less, and the Megamind character looks loads of fun.

The film stars a host of names with Will Ferrell playing Megamind and Brad Pitt playing Metro Man while Tina Fey the news reported caught up in the diabolical scheme.
