The first DreamWorks movie to hit theaters was the action flick “The Peacemaker” in 1997. The production studio signed two of the biggest names in Hollywood at the time, George…

It is in this tradition that DreamWorks Animation is releasing a movie that represents an intersection between two of the hottest trends in the world today: Bollywood musicals and monkeys.
DreamWorks Animation is ready to clean up at the box office again. They’ve snagged the film rights to the Oni Press comic Maintenance.
Megamind was big at the box office this weekend, and moviegoers who saw the film were also treated to a teaser trailer for Kung Fu Panda: The Kaboom of Doom. Jack Black returns as the voice of Po, an anthropomorphic bear who is skilled in Chinese martial arts.
Megamind is going to suffer for being the second animated superhero movie. In fact, it follows a long line of Dreamworks being second to Pixar (fish, monsters although they did beat them to insects). I’m not saying it’s The Incredibles, but Megamind is the best Dreamworks animated movie and certainly the best animated movie this year.
Dreamworks Animation has released the first five minutes of their upcoming film Megamind starring Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Tina Fey, and Jonah Hill. The trailers seemed a little too The Incredibles-y to me, but this new footage has peaked my interest. Just the fact that Brad Pitt and not Steve Carell is voicing the film's hero, Metro Man, is intriguing. Carell must have been busy on one of his fifty-thousand other projects.

Guillermo del Toro has inked a deal with DreamWorks for his first animated film: Trollhunters. Based on a children's book authored by del Toro himself, the story will be geared toward kids (duh) and will focus on…wait for it…trolls!
"I wanted very much to develop a story that could be written for kids but dealt with a genre that was scary," he tells the Heat Vision Blog. "It essentially combines fairy tales with modern times and is about how difficult it is to be a kid. Normally, kids are idealized in animated films. But the growing pains, married with the notion that there is a world right next to us that is completely plagued by creatures of ancient lore, it's thematically fitting with the rest of my stuff."
No word yet on whether these trolls will deny the holocaust and claim Obama is a secret Muslim Homojew, or if they'll just stick to living under bridges and eating bones. (Heat Vision via Empire)
Stroke humor in its purest form. Dreamworks has released a full length trailer for their new animated film Megamind. It wants so very badly to be The Incredibles, but without the voice talent of Coach, a.k.a Craig T. Nelson, it's pretty much S.O.L. They could have at least tried for Jerry Van Dyke. The trailer plays out more like a teaser that pimps the voices of Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Tina Fey, and Jonah Hill. I had to read the film's official synopsis to get a firm grasp of the plot, and the major turning point isn't even revealed in the trailer. Also, can we please put a cap on how many animated movies an actor can lend their voice to? Brad Pitt was a good get, but Jonah's shuffled up to the microphone in his P.J.s far too many times recently. Check out the trailer after the jump, and the synopsis so you can fill in the blanks. Megamind takes over theaters November 5, 2010.
