‘Megamind’ trailer, starring Brad Pitt, Will Ferrell & Tina Fey


Last year, it was announced that Brad Pitt had signed on to do voice work the animated film Oobermind. I hadn’t really been following the production, but I remember hearing that Brad had joined Will Ferrell, and that Brad was the voice of the superhero. I wasn’t expecting this though – this sh-t looks hilarious. The project was renamed Megamind, and Ferrell plays Megamind, and obviously, the film is about Megamind. It seems like what would happen if they made a cartoon about Dr. Evil. That’s probably how they pitched it, actually.

Anyway, Brad has voiced the “hero” Metro Man, and Tina Fey is the voice of the lady in distress. There’s additional voice work by Jonah Hill. The film is directed by Tom McGrath, who also did Madagascar. It comes out in theatres in November.

Thanks to Seriously OMG WTF for the heads up!

    Oh, they had me at ‘Incredibly handsome master of all villainy’ and ‘I’m shaking in my custom baby seal leather boots!’

    Great cast and Will Ferrell sounds hilarious.

    Can’t wait; definitely a MUST see for me!

    This looks like a movie my kids and I will enjoy, yay!

    Brad is a great actor in comedies, dark comedies, etc. When he gets a chance to be funny he’s fantastic. The rest of the time…meh hehe.

    This doesn’t look awesome to me. But then again, neither did “cloudy with a chance of meatballs” or “how to train your dragon”, but they both did ridiculously well in the box office and with the critics, so I guess I’m not good at determining what makes a funny kid’s movie.

    Loves a bit of Ferrell I does 😀

    Oh wow! Three celebrities I loathe! I’ll pass………

    I gurantee this will not be a box office hit!

    Couldn’t agree more Jen. He was funny when he guest starred on Friends & the best part of Burn After Reading. The serious roles however not so impressive.

    Voiceover: I’m totally with you. I don’t find this clip the least bit amusing and didn’t find those other ones you mentioned amusing either. I guess I don’t get today’s humor in kid’s movies. Just stupid shit to me.

    I see Megamind is going to be my new favorite villain, sorry Darth Vader.

    Aww that looks fun..for the kids and adults..It must be a hoot as a parent to do an animated film your kids can watch.. Plus when they hear your voice through the characters.. Priceless..

    I can’t wait..

    Will Ferrell still rocks!

    Would it kill His Highness to button his shirt properly at such an important event? I think he did the same thing when he visited the White House. No class whatsoever.

  13. whatever says:

    LOL that someone noticed his shirt was unbuttoned at the top. Miss Manners, the etiquette police from the Victorian era, has arrived.

    How dare he? Off with his head!!!

  14. Majosha says:

    whatever: Exactly! See, I knew I wasn’t the only one who would notice! We’re kindred spirits! OMG!!!

  15. Shells says:

    I think whatever was making fun of you, Majosha.

  16. dizzybenny says:

    they had me until the 3D part!
    uunngh!! I’m already sick of that fad.
    Anyone else?

    brad does a shitty job

  18. lisa says:

    let’s see the movie is not out and from a clip Brad has done a terrible job.. I laugh because some of these same kinds of people did the same thing when BAR and IB were viewed.. Well his performance in both films was awesome..

    Why bother reading about someone you don’t like for whatever reason. And to know so much about a person you don’t like.. right down to a button on a shirt being undone.. LOL

    Strange.. but predictable..

  19. Majosha says:

    Shells: I was being sarcastic, but thanks for pointing out the obvious.

    Angie has sucked the hot right out of Brad, sigh.
