Movie Trailer Review


By our guest blogger, Jeremy Wilkinson

DreamWorks has yet another CG movie on the way. It's called “Megamind” and it features the voices of Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Tina Fey and Jonah Hill. The new teaser trailer doesn't give much insight into the movie. Megamind (Ferrell) narrates a bit, saying how evil now has a “secret, incredible, totally handsome weapon.” AC/DC's “Highway to Hell” kicks in and the trailer continues with shots of Megamind.

The teaser is...okay. It might make kids at a theater giggle, but there isn't much here. The main draw of this movie, however, will not be the trailer but rather the cast and the fact it is a DreamWorks film. Ferrell is a good choice for the lead role. When he can bring his manic energy to a role, he usually can work well with the script given him. The trailer's too short to send up any red flags about him (though Ferrell does seem to be channeling Mugatu for this role).

DreamWorks has a good track record with CG movies. Most are box office successes, even when the films were not well-received by critics. It's almost certain children will want to see this movie. But, whether it's worth a trip to theaters instead of waiting for the DVD remains to be seen. If their past movies are any indication, it will at least be worth a single watch.

Watch the teaser trailer for "Megamind" below. What are your thoughts?
