Megamind – A new look at DreamWorks evil genius

Posted by LiveFor on March 14, 2010

This was the film that was originally called Oobermind and was going to have Robert Downey Jr voice the main character. That got changed and Will Ferrell got the job. Now we have a better look at the main character (the only other outing has been on a poster from August last year).

“When super villain MegaMind (Will Ferrell) defeats his archrival Metro Man (Brad Pitt), the world should be his oyster. But instead, MegaMind falls into total despair. It turns out that life without a rival is life without a purpose for him. So he creates a new superhero rival, Titan (Jonah Hill). 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.”

It is due out on the 5th November 2010.

Oobermind loses Downey Jr gets Will Ferrell

Posted by LiveFor on August 17, 2009

oobermind-550x268According to Variety DreamWorks Animation’s Oobermind will now be featuring the voice talents of Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill. The film is set to be released in the fall of 2010.

Ferrell will be playing the title role that had been slated for Robert Downey Jr. He is a super-villain who wants all his nefarious dreams to come true when he defeats good-guy rival Metro Man (Pitt). The only problem is that he has nothing to do after beating his most vaunted adversary. To occupy his time, Oobermind manufactures a brand new superhero, Titan (Hill), but he wants to be bad, so Oobermind suddenly has to become good.

Apparently, Downey left the production due to scheduling conflicts. Tina Fey is already attached to voice a reporter who tries to make sense of this superhero situation.

Oobermind, Iron Man 2 and Spider-Man 4 Posters

Posted by LiveFor on June 3, 2009


I posted a few posters yesterday from the Licensing Show (Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Rango, Avengers and more).

Now AICN have some more photos of other new posters from the show.

My favourite is the one above for Oobermind. This is the superhero film being produced by Ben Stiller, that I’ve mentioned previously.

When super villain Oobermind (Robert Downey Jr) defeats his arch-rival Metro Man, the world should be his oyster. But instead, Oobermind falls into total despair. It turns out that life without a rival is life without a point for him. So he creates a new superhero rival. Unfortunately, the new hero wants to be a super villain too. Who can we turn to? Who has what it takes to stand up to this menace? Who will defend the innocent? Oobermind! That’s who.
Neither the Iron Man 2 or Spider-Man 4 tell us anything new about the films, but it is nice to see them. I just wish they’d try and do something a bit cooler with the Spider-Man posters.

Robert Downey Jr is Oobermind

Posted by LiveFor on May 28, 2009

I first mentioned this back in February. Now Variety have the news that Robert Downey Jr. and Tina Fey have been case in a 3D Animated feature for DreamWorks called Oobermind.

Downey will voice a supervillain who finds life a little dull after vanquishing his good-guy rival Metro Man. The superhero-themed film, based on a script (previously called “Master Mind”) from Ben Stiller’s Red Hour Films, will open 5th November 2010.

I do like the sound of this and Downey Jr and Fay are both quality actors. I just hope it is a bit better than recent DreamWorks animated films (Kung-Fu Panda, Shrek 2 & 3 etc) as they have not been too good. Presumably the name was changed from Master Mind as that character exists in the DC Comics world.

Looks as if Dr Horrible will have some company with a villain being the lead.
