'Megamind' trailer: This is the braintrust?

Posted on

If Will Ferrell, Jonah Hill, Brad Pitt, and Tina Fey were going to lend their voices to one movie, did it have to be something so derivative? Megamind, formerly known as Oobermind, is about a supervillain (Ferrell) who gets bored after he defeats his good-guy rival (Pitt). I feel like this trailer is “upcycled” material from other films:

“Loving You”? Sorry, that cannot be disassociated from South Park‘s “Big Gay Al’s Big Gay Boat Ride” for me. Even though that episode came out in 1997.

Are you getting an Incredibles Lite vibe from Megamind, PopWatchers? Or do you think Megamind will be a fun spin on the superhero genre?
