DreamWorks Animation's Megamind Gets an Impressive Poster
The superhero movie will never be the same. Quite a bold tagline for a movie not many seem that excited about. Although I didn't really enjoy the latest trailer for DreamWorks Animation's Megamind, this new official poster from SuperHeroHype is actually quite impressive. I just like the design with the characters positioned the way they are, simple but fun, I thnk. I'm actually kind of surprised because I really don't like the character design in this, but this poster got my attention. However, I think they may be overselling the "Ferrell vs Pitt" aspect because isn't the actual plot about how boring it is for Ferrell after he defeats Pitt?
A satirical take on superhero movies, in which a notorious villain loses his oomph after he accidentally kills his nemesis Metro Man. Megamind is being directed by DWA's own Tom McGrath, of both Madagascar and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa previously. The script was co-written by first-time writers Alan J. Schoolcraft and Brent Simons. This will be DreamWorks Animation's third feature film this year following How to Train Your Dragon in March and Shrek Forever After in May. Paramount will be releasing Megamind in theaters everywhere starting on November 5th this year. Anyone planning on seeing it or just skipping it instead?

I hate to say it, but it looks like they are having a dreamworks-face contest.

i adore dreamworks, remember what general motors use to say about toyota or IBM use to say about microsoft, and look now. dreamworks is coming up and pixar better look out. how to train your dragon was epic. and im really looking forward for this flick in 3D.

umm... there is nothing impressive about this poster... at all lackluster character design and an uninspiring story to back it up

nothing impressive about it. sometimes it looks like Alex gets excited about anything without too much thought. I have only one comment about this terrible poster: http://migre.me/TzjN

Dreamworks blows. Its all cheap fart jokes without any emotional withstanding. Dragons was close to an exception, but the predictability just threw me out of it. Pixar was king, but I don't see it continuing its rein now that its in sequel land.

Looks more like "The Great Gazoo VS. Jay Leno"

Good poster? They have the same exact face and expressions. Oh wait, its Dreamworks....nothing out of the ordinary here.

This poster is bright and eye-catching. Let's just hope that this movie isn't lame.
