‘Megamind’ Premieres In NYC


Brad Pitt and his eldest sons Maddox Chivan and Pax Thien managed to tear themselves away from their temporary new home in Hungary (where pseudo-wife and mama Angelina Jolie is bizzy directing her first film) to make their way to NYC last night for the premiere of Brad’s new animated film Megamind. Costars Tina Fey and Ben Stiller were among the other attendees at the film’s premiere at the AMC Lincoln Square Theater in Manhattan last night … here are a few photos:

Between them, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie would probably agree most of their filmography isn’t suitable for the eyes and ears of their six children. So after Pitt finally made a film he could show his children, he made sure they enjoyed the perks of being the offspring of a Hollywood superstar – by bringing them to the premiere. Clearly in ‘dad mode’ in his casual clothing compared to his usual formal premiere style, Brad brought eldest sons Maddox, nine, and Pax, six, to the New York screening of his latest film Megamind. Pitt and his partner Jolie usually attend premieres either alone or a couple, so it was quite a surprise to see the actor with children in tow. After the boys watched the new film before their schoolmates will get the chance to, they also took home some Megamind-themed memorabilia. Dressed in an all-black outfit of leather boots, jeans, shirt, woolly hat and thick jacket, Pitt looked dressed for a walk in the park, rather than a glamorous night out.

In all honesty, I’m really more interested in seeing the new Disney film Tangled than Megamind but I might be talked into seeing it if one of my friends is insistent (Darion’s always dragging me out to see questionable films). I dunno, tho … none of the promo trailers have really grabbed my attention. Firstly, I don’t usually find Will Farrell all that funny. Secondly, the animated version of Tina Fey’s character in this film looks … creepy. Still, I’m certain that many young viewers will get a kick out of Megamind, chief among them … Brad’s own children. I think it was really cute that he brought his sons as his movie premiere dates. What do y’all think … is Megamind the kind of film that YOU’D like to see in theaters?

    Yes! The powerhouse of comedians – Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Jonah Hill, David Cross — that alone is enough to convince me. And I don’t always find Will Ferrell funny, but I’m sure he brings this animated character to great heights.

    I’ll have to disagree with you Trent – Tangled looks like a pandering mess while Megamind seems to have a distinct personality. I hope Darion drags you out and you’re open to enjoying it. Plus, I think the promos are getting better – did you see the most recent one where Brad Pitt’s and Will Ferrell’s characters are pitted against each other like a political ad? Brills.

    I’m actually interested in seeing both ‘Tangled’ and ‘Megamind’. Both have thier own appeal, and both seem like they would be good movies to see.

    From the trailers I actually think Megamind looks very good, and as though it would be a good movie to just watch and laugh. I have chuckled at some of trailers, but then I’m easily amused so that may be why. I was actually surprised that I wanted to see this film, since I am not a Will Ferrell fan at all(He usually is very annoying to me) as long as I don’t have to see him, I’mn sure it will be good. It looks like a cute film!

    As for Tangled, that too caught my interest. Well at first I thought it was stupid, but as more trailers came out I thought it would be a fun movie to watch. Not to mention that Mandy Moore is voice acting for it, so that is also another reason I want to see it.

    It’s usually the movies that one thinks they will hate(or at least when it comes to animated movies) that one really ends up enjoying. Honestly, I’ve learned not to hold to much hope for any movie lately, and usually that allows me to enjoy them better :)
