This newest instalment from the creative minds at DreamWorks is a tale about a big blue-headed alien and his quest to be the ultimate villain. One little catch in his plans for world domination is his arch nemesis, fellow alien, Metro Man. The good guy.

As infants from doomed planets, both were sent off in hopes that they would survive. They landed on Earth. Metro Man (Brad Pitt), landed under the christmas tree of and affluent family. While Megamind (Will Ferrell) crash landed in the middle of a prison for "Gifted Criminals". You can guess the type of influence and upbringing they each had.

Cue to several years later, when the two have had a life time of battles, Metro Man winning some, Megamind almost winning others. But when Megamind kidnaps Metro Man's 'girlfriend' Roxanne Ritchi (Tina Fey) for the umpteenth time, Metro Man decides that he wants out. He comes up with the bright idea to fake his own death, leaving Megamind to take over Metro City.

While at the time Megamind is excited at this prospect, he soon falls into the doldrums and realizes he thrived upon the epic battles he and Metro Man had. He extracts the DNA of Metro Man from a few pieces of dandruff, and creates a device that would allow him to create the hero he needs. But when the recipient of this supercharged DNA turns out to be a nightmare, a guy named Hal (Jonah Hill), Megamind has to figure out whether he wants to be the villain, or try out hero work.

And now for our resident kid movie expert, Ro-Roe. She's seen this movie multiple times, and has a few things to say about it...take it away Ro-Roe.

Here's the full trailer for Megamind. Tell us what you think...
