Two New Character Posters For Megamind Surface In The UK

Dreamworks’ Megamind has managed to put two things I don’t particularly enjoy, Will Ferrell and 3D, into something I’m actually pretty intrigued by. The film takes a shot at the superhero movie from the opposite side, putting the “villain”, so to speak, at the forefront of the film and the “hero”, who is obnoxiously smug here, into the second fiddle chair.

UK film site HeyUGuys has their hands in Dreamworks’ pocket this week as they’ll be getting new character posters each day, starting with this morning’s images for Ferrell’s character, the titular Megamind, and David Cross’s Minion, comprised of a fish controlling a mechanical gorilla body. Awesome.

They also had this detailed description of the story, which also stars Brad Pitt and the incomparable Tina Fey:

Synopsis: From the studio that brought you “Shrek,” “Madagascar” and “Kung Fu Panda.” The brilliant and diabolical super-villain Megamind has been attempting to conquer Earth for over 20 years but, each time, he’s been thwarted by his arch nemesis, the caped superhero Metro Man. But all that changes one day when Megamind accidentally kills Metro Man in the throes of one of his evil plans. Suddenly finding himself without a foe to overcome, the despondent evil genius decides that the only way out of his rut is to create a new super rival. He’s a bigger, better and stronger opponent than Metro Man ever was. But when the former good guy begins to wage his own war aimed at destroying the world, Megamind must decide: Can he defeat his own (now) diabolical creation? Can the world’s smartest man make the smart decision for once? Can the Evil Genius switch sides and become the Hero of his own story?

Here are the first couple of character posters, but expect to see several more as the week progresses. Check them out below, and see the movie November 5th.
