New Megamind trailer sure seems like a Megamind 2 trailer

Sep. 9, 2010by:

Well this is interesting.

From the first trailer for Dreamworks' MEGAMIND, we got the impression that Will Ferrell's Megamind and Brad Pitt's Metro Man would spend the duration of the film duking it out, taking their childhood rivalry to the streets of Metro City.

But this new trailer shows a whole bunch of new plot points that make this seem more like a sequel to the first movie. In this trailer, Megamind actually seeks out the help of Metro Man, now down on his luck and playing awful songs on the guitar, to defeat a new hero/villain in town spawned from Jonah Hill's character, who previously only appeared to be Tina Fey's sidekick in the initial trailer. Now Megamind must stop being a villain and save the day himself.

It really does seem like a sequel concept to me, as I'm sure the first film could have been entirely about the Megamind/Metro Man rivalry, but I'm curious to see if this ends up being better or worse than DESPICABLE ME.

Extra Tidbit: Megamind's minion is actually named "Minion" just like Gru's Minions.

Seems like fun, but I don't get the same positive vibe i did, when watching the Despicable Me trailer. I'll wait and see

To the writer:

Mr. Tassi, we all know you get orgasms when you see Pixar movies...but please spare us that seething, anti-Dreamworks tone, especially if you're going to devote an entire article to their film.

Reserve Judgement

Everyone's always so quick to write off a Dreamworks movie. The trailers have been consistently funny. They didn't change the story, either. That's what it's been from the beginning. The Metro Man dying thing happens at the beginning of the movie. So, no, this has nothing to do with a sequel.

That literally made my soul hurt. It seems tonally confused, and just a mash of some other films, with no real style. Pity, has a great voice cast.

Dreamworks needs to stop pimping the voice cast.

C'Mon Dreamworks...

Let me say first off this movie looks pretty bad. I feel bad because it does have some good actors in it. Brad Pitt especially. but the characters are all pretty much making the same face. theres nothing really unique about them and dreamworks always has a weird way of making the same kind of looking characters in diff movies.Jonah Hills character looks so retarded. his body is much to long and big and his head is to small its not funny it just looks annoying. This really does look like a bad

This really does look like a bad ripoff of the incredibles with characters similar to monsters vs. aliens another bad dreamworks pic. dreamworks just cant seem to get it together.

I guess, but in the clip Mega Mind fires a beam at Metro Man and he is shown to be a skeleton after being hit by the beam. And, if he did fake his death, why reveal it in the trailer? How much of the film do they intend on giving away?

I thought Metro-Man

was killed in the previous clips. Wasn't the original idea that Mega Mind finally defeats his arch nemesis and then can't figure out what to do with himself? Not only do I remember reading that synopsis, but it was actually in the original trailer. Why is this film different than the one they advertised in the last trailer?

It does appear that Jonah Hill's villain is mentioned in the official synopsis, as a hero meant to replace Metro Man, but I still don't understand why they would show Metro Man as alive. The original footage starts with the concept that Megamind killed Metro Man, so why give away the suggestion that the death was faked? Isn't that something that could have been saved as a twist in the film?

Definitely get a sequel vibe from this, which if the original does well, then we will be hearing of a sequel soon. The trailer was funny and it looks like a fun time. At the end of the day, isn't it what it's all about?

This was the original plot synopsis I read way back before the first trailer was ever released, so I'm glad that they actually stuck to it.
