Megamind trailer debut

The trailer for Dreamworks’ upcoming animated comedy Megamind has debuted on YouTube. It fills us with about as much confidence as other animated Dreamworks features. Take that for what you will.

The film, originally titled Oobermind, features Will Ferrell (or at least his voice) as the eponymous supervillain who finally defeats his arch nemesis Metro Man (Brad Pitt). With no one left to battle, Megamind invents a new foe named Titan (Jonah Hill), who eventually decides to become a supervillain himself. Tina Fey also lends her voice to the character of Roxanne Ritchi, a local reporter.

The teaser trailer for Megamind features the same kind of comedy as other Dreamworks features (Madagascar, Shrek etc.), which is to say, it hinges on dated pop cultural references.

Judge for yourself. Hit it!

I’m don’t exactly love it, but I am willing to give the film the benefit of the doubt. After all, the impressive voice talent speaks for itself (geddit).

Megamind hits Australian cinemas December 9, 2010.

Discuss: Did you know that Robert Downey Jr. was originally slated to voice Megamind?
