A teaser trailer gave us a glimpse into the world of Megamind in March, but a new 2:30 trailer fleshes out the universe of the DreamWorks Animation effort in a bit more detail.  Featuring an all-star voice cast of Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Tina Fey, and Jonah Hill, the film tells the story of what supervillain Megamind (Ferrell) does with his life once he actually succeeds in vanquishing his superhero nemesis, Metro Man (Pitt).

Or at least that’s what the plot synopsis says.  I still haven’t seen the theoretically central concept in any of the released footage (not necessarily a bad thing).  Check out the gag-heavy trailer after the jump.

Here’s the official plot synopsis

Megamind is the most brilliant supervillain 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,’ an invincible hero until the day Megamind actually kills him in the throes of one of his botched evil plans. Suddenly, Megamind has no purpose. A supervillain without a superhero. He realizes that achieving his life’s ambition is the worst thing that ever happened to him.

Megamind decides that the only way out of his rut is to create a new hero opponent called ‘Titan,’ who promises to be bigger, better and stronger than Metro Man ever was. Pretty quickly Titan starts to think it’s much more fun to be a villain than a good guy. Except Titan doesn’t just want to rule the world, he wants to destroy it. Now, Megamind must decide: can he defeat his own diabolical creation? Can the world’s smartest man make the smart decision for once? Can the evil genius become the unlikely hero of his own story?
