Dreamworks is at it again, bringing us another wacky animated family film.

When super villain Oobermind (Will Ferrell) defeats his archrival Metro Man (Brad Pitt), 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 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 Oobermind sets out to stop him, beginning a path to redemption in the process.

Wooooowww... Brad Pitt lending his voice to an animated character? This is a first! We can't believe he'd step down from his pedestal of greatness to be like the common-folk and do an animated film... when there is probably no critical acclaim to be had.

We know he can be funny, so we're hoping he does a good job. The rest of the cast had us tingling as well, since we're huge fans of Will Ferrell and Jonah Hill. You just knooowww this will be funny. The concept is cute and original, although we've already seen the CGI superheroes/villains thing done in The Incredibles. Shmeh....
