MEGAMIND Synopsis

Packed with high-flying action and non-stop laughs, DreamWorks Animation’s Megamind puts a whole new hilarious twist on the superhero movie.  Super villain Megamind’s (Will Ferrell) dreams have come true when he captures the damsel in no distress (Tina Fey) and conquers the city’s protector Metro Man (Brad Pitt), gaining control of Metro City.  But when a new villain (Jonah Hill) is created and chaos runs rampant, the world’s biggest “mind” and his comic sidekick Minion (David Cross) might actually be the ones to save the day. 


MEGAMIND: THE BUTTON OF DOOM Synopsis

For their first day on the job as the new protectors of Metro City, Megamind (Will Ferrell) and Minion (David Cross) are selling off the gadgets from their evil lair.  But when one seemingly harmless “button” unleashes the gigantic robot MEGA-MEGAmind, the duo will have to resort to their old tricks to restore order in this all-new action-comedy from DreamWorks Animation.
