trailer break: ‘Megamind’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

So, it’s to be Despicable Me meets The Incredibles, then? I can take it.

Sucks, I suppose, to be the second movie of the year about an idea that probably seemed wildly original when it was in conceived only to be thrown back in your face when you learn that someone else had a really, really similar idea probably around the same time you did. D’oh!

Director Tom McGrath is a vet of Madagascar and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa: here’s hoping Megamind is more like the former, which was sweet and clever and funny, and less like the latter, which was amusing but superfluous.

Gotta say: I wonder if Brad Pitt was the best choice for the square-jawed hero. I like him a lot as an actor, but his voice isn’t all that distinctive. Maybe that’s gonna be part of the point…

Megamind opens in the U.S. and Canada on November 5, and in the U.K. on December 3.
