DreamWorks Animation presents Megamind, starring Will Ferrell as Evil Genius Megamind and Tina Fey as Roxanne Ritchi, the Lois Lane-esque love interest, and Brad Pitt as Metro Man in the only animated film to cast the super hero genre in an entirely new light.
Like all other Evil Geniuses who have come before him, Megamind (Will Ferrell) has been trying to conquer the planet for decades, battling the seemingly immortal, and incomparably charming, superhero Metro Man (Brad Pitt) in a cyclical struggle of planning, confrontation, and inevitable defeat. That is, until the day Megamind accidentally kills his nemesis . . .
Triumphant, Megamind gloats for a minute, but the glow of victory quickly fades. Without anyone to fight world domination seems like a daunting responsibility and there's little point to a dastardly plan. The despondent Evil Genius decides that in order to pull himself out of his rut he must create a new and even stronger superhero to oppose him. But this creation—a muscle-bound, fiery caped crusader called Titan (Jonah Hill)—quickly develops different ideas, waging his own destructive war against the world. Our headlining super-villain must make a decision: Can he defeat his own diabolical creation to save the world? Can the world’s smartest man make the right decision for once? Can the Evil Genius become the Hero of his own story?
