Premiering this weekend on HBO was “Megamind”, 2010’s animated movie featuring the voices of Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Tina Fey, Jonah Hill and David Cross.
It poses the question: What would happen if Evil triumphed?
Ferrell stars as the titular large headed, blue skinned evil genius with a penchant for mis-pronunciation. He escapes his dying planet at the same time as Brad Pitt’s Metro Man escapes his. Together they grow up as polar opposites… Metro Man the heroic champion of the city, and Megamind his despicable arch nemesis.
When Megamind succeeds in his plan to kill Metro Man, he realizes the true meaning of “Be careful what you wish for.”
