The Dreamworks Face takes center stage in new Megamind poster

Jul. 1, 2010by:

Good Lord Dreamworks, do you do this just to mess with us now? Because it’s literally impossible you’re this oblivious to what people say about your movies. 

It’s long been a running joke when comparing Dreamworks and Pixar that Pixar thinks of brilliant, creative ideas, and Dreamworks has a series of animals doing things animals don’t usually do while all wearing the same smirk on their faces. This is best demonstrated by this comic here.

Well, in this new poster for Megamind, the smirk takes center stage as the company's animators can’t seem to figure out how to keep virtual eyebrows level with each other. Granted, we’ve moved on from animals, but still, come on guys, this is getting embarrassing.

That being said, I think MEGAMIND looks pretty decent, but I am rooting for DESPICABLE ME to be the better film with a similar concept.

Dreamworks are a fucking factory. They have 3 movies coming out this year... and yet, Pixar still out-gross them even though the ratio of movies is 3 to 1 for Dreamworks. How about some HEART and SOUL in your movies, why don't you?

Poster is about as unoriginal as posters can be, but I actually think this looks like a fun move. I probably won't see it in the theatres, but it looks fun nonetheless.

This looks so incredibly uninspired and dull. Just another entry in the "mindless CGI kids movie" category by Dreamworks. If they spent more time making films like How To Train Your Dragon, I wouldn't hate them so much. But it's hard to forgive them for their many other transgressions.

Refresher course! To help us predict the outcome of Megamind, Let's go ahead and break this down, folks:

A Bug's Life > Antz
Monsters Inc. > Monsters Vs. Aliens
Finding Nemo > Shark Tale

Pixar is an anamoly.. seriously.. how many movie studios pump out a hit critically and financially for every single film in it's existence?

Dreamworks had some brilliant films (Shrek, How to Train your Dragon) and some really solid ones (Ice Age, Madagascar) but followed them up with some bad sequels that made them look like they were cashing in.. especially with the 4th Shrek film (my god already).

I'll be checking this out.. since their last 2 movies (Cloudy and Dragon) I loved... but

Not to correct ya again, but Ice Age was 20th Century Fox. It's easy though to mix up all the ones that aren't PIxar though, which says something about Pixar's quality vs quantity.

In what little credit you gave Dreamworks, it seems you still gave them too much.

I'll give you short circuit but wall e is sweeter and way less annoying.

I compared the two though and i definitely think while they do the same smirk there's a warmth to pixar's characters and a weird hollow student feel to Dreamworks.

JH has it right. The term Dreamworks Face, IMO, is more a reference to the terrible, amateur character designs and flat personalities, in addition to the cheesy smile.

I didn't make that collage, if I had I'd have left Wall-E off it, because the Short Circuit comparison really has nothing to do with the pic's message.

It's not a 'Dreamworks face', it's a [link] [link] face', and it's been in cartoons for quite a while.

Ha it seems Pixar is guilty of it as well. One of the Toy Story 3 posters had just about every toy on the poster doing the Dreamworks face.

Aside from the whole Pixar vs. Dreamworks thing, just as a stand-alone animated movie, this looks entertaining. Obviously they're not trying to compete with Up, let's just put it that way (a movie which had a talking animal, by the way. Oh and can you say Finding Nemo? How about talking toys? GET OVER IT! All these hollow arguments against Dreamworks are getting old because every other animation studio is guilty of the exact same things. Needless sequels, talking animals, pop-culture

Dreamworks went through a very lazy phase for a while there, and overdosed on talking animals. Recently with How to Train Your Dragon and possibly this movie, they seem to be expanding and bouncing back, but you can't deny there was a pretty big quality gap for a while there.

Pixar hasn't made a needless sequel yet in what I believe would be most peoples opinions. You are right though that all animation companies do have talking animals and pop culture references, but I think Dreamworks has had to rely on those references to be successful, sort of like the EPIC MOVIE type movies needed them.

As a teaser poster, it's kind of cool. They need to get more creative for the final though.

"As a teaser poster, it's kind of cool"

HAHAHAHAHAH!! You've got to be shitting me. That comment sounds so desperate and insincere. It's one thing to hate Pixar; but it's just pathetic to defend tripe like this poster.
