The movie will start out with a look at Megamind who is sent down to Earth and how he ends up living among criminals and deciding that being a super villain is his destiny.
DreamWorks has generously given away the first five minutes of "Megamind". Posted on Nick.com, the spoilery video reveals how Megamind grows to be a super villain and how his rivalry with Metro Man starts during their childhood.
After a long feud, Megamind accidentally kills his archrival Metro Man. The world should be his oyster at this time, but it turns out that life without a rival is life without a point for him. So, he creates a new superhero rival, Titan.
Unfortunately for him and the world, the new hero wants to be a super villain too. The new villain begins his rampage, and Megamind sets out to stop him, beginning a path to redemption in the process.
Will Ferrell voices Megamind, Brad Pitt is cast as the voice of Metro Man, Jonah Hill provides the voice of Titan. Tina Fey additionally supports the cast to voice Roxanne Ritchi, a star reporter who is caught in the middle of the fight between the super-powered heroes.
DreamWorks will drop this Tom McGrath-directed PG animation in theaters across the nation on November 5. The studio has been actively campaigning "Megamind", holding the largest gathering of costumed crime-fighters in Los Angeles earlier this month with Ferrell joining the event.
