In a press release announcing a deal with video game company THQ, DreamWorks Animation has announced a new name for the upcoming animated superhero comedy Oobermind. The new title is MegaMind. Here’s a fresh synopsis for the film (set to be released on November 5, 2010):
When super villain MegaMind (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 point for him. So, he creates a new superhero rival, Titan (Jonah Hill). Unfortunately, the new hero wants to be a super villain, too. Caught in the middle, star reporter Roxanne Ritchi (Tina Fey) asks the tough questions: Who can we turn to? Who has what it takes to stand up to this menace? Who will defend the innocent? MegaMind! That’s who.
