‘Megamind’ Pairs A Big Brain With A Fishhead In MTV’s Fall Preview

MTV’s Fall Preview week of exclusives continues today with a look at the hottest upcoming movies of the next four months. We know what you should see and why you should see it, and we’ve got it all right here. Keep it locked to MTV News and MTV Movies Blog for continued updates throughout the week!

What’s It Called:Megamind

What It’s About: An alien super-villain manages to finally kill off his superhero arch-nemesis… only to discover that his life no longer has any purpose. In his depression he creates a new hero for him to match wits against… only the newcomer decides to use his powers for evil, thus forcing our downtrodden super-villain to protect the people he once sought to dominate.

Who’s In It: Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, Tina Fey, David Cross, Justin Long. Directed by Tom McGrath.

Why You Should Care: Honestly, the year has been pretty crowded with first-class animated films, to the point that this is the second one in 2010 to feature a super-villain who is forced to turn over a new leaf. That being said, “Megamind” features a dynamite cast and a cool story of its own. Day one ticket purchase right here.
