Events scheduled across the country, which include Mega regional contests, Mega marathon weekend races and Mega food festivals. MegaMonth is Dreamworks Animation's month of Mega events. These events are Mega-big, Mega-bold and Mega-fun!


MEGAMIND (Will Ferrell) is the most brilliant super-villain the world has ever known...and the least successful. Over the years, he has tried to conquer Metro City in every imaginable way - Each attempt, a colossal failure thanks to the caped superhero known as "Metro Man," (Brad Pitt) until the day Megamind actually defeats him in the throes of one of his botched evil plans. Suddenly, the fate of Metro City is threatened when a new villain arrives and chaos runs rampant, leaving everyone to wonder:  Can the world's biggest "mind" actually be the one to save the day?  

RELEASE: On November 5th, in 3D - the superhero movie will never be the same! This film has not yet been rated
