'Megamind' trailer: Ferrell, Fey, and Pitt go animated

Posted on

I’m a sucker for blockbuster movies geared toward little kids. A few weeks ago I saw Despicable Me, and I giggled as much as the 7-year-old next to me during the trailer for Megamind. (Yeah. It happened.) And the worst part? After Yahoo! movies released this extended trailer — as seen by Comic-Con audiences — I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to wait until November to see this movie. And here’s why:

1. It’s not your typical superhero movie. “What if the bad guy won?” Well I don’t know what! Because the bad guy NEVER wins. I’m already intrigued.

2. Will Ferrell is funny even if when he’s not making NSFW jokes. Did anyone else see Kicking and Screaming?: “They’re like 4-foot whirling dervishes. I don’t even know what a whirling dervish is but that’s what they’re like.”

3. Tina Fey voices Roxanne Ritchi, the movie’s heroine. And I have to admit she’s the heroine of my own comedic life. Basically, they had me at Tina Fey.

4. And last, but definitely not least, Brad Pitt. I know only his animated self appears in the film (le sigh). But I could listen to that voice all day. Yum.

What do you think about the trailer, PopWatchers?
