Philippa Woodward talks to Richard Blackwood, Nigel Lindsay and Jimi Mistry at the Special Megamind Gala Event

30 November 2010

The Fan Carpet were lucky enough to attend the London Gala event of DreamWorks Animation's Megamind 3D. The film stars Will Ferrell and Brad Pitt as rival super powered beings. Kate Garraway of ITV's Daybreak introduced the film to a packed auditorium full of fans and celebrity guests.

The brilliant and diabolical super-villain Megamind who has been attempting to conquer Earth for over 20 years but, each time, he's been thwarted by his arch nemesis, the caped superhero Metro Man.  But all that changes one day when Megamind accidentally kills Metro Man in the throes of one of his evil plans.  Suddenly finding himself without a foe to overcome, the despondent evil genius decides that the only way out of his rut is to create a new super rival.  He's a bigger, better and stronger opponent than Metro Man ever was. But when the former good guy begins to wage his own war aimed at destroying the world, Megamind must decide:  Can he defeat his own (now) diabolical creation?  Can the world's smartest man make the smart decision for once?

Our presenter Philippa Woodward braved the freezing winter conditions of the Vue Cinema in London's Leicester Square to talk to Richard Blackwood, Nigel Lindsay, Jimi Mistry amongst others.

When asked if he was excited to see the film, Richard Blackwood, who is currently playing Donkey in the stage production of Shrek said "It's been a long time since I've been to one of these premieres, I'm more excited to have my son here to experience it."

Richards co star in Shrek the Musical, Nigel Lindsay said "I'm very excited, I've got my two children upstairs and they're looking forward to it. I've looked at it on the web and it looks fantastic."

When asked if he was a fan of Will Ferrell, Jimi Mistry said "I've pretty much seen everything he has been in, so I'm really looking forward to this, although he'll be in a different guise."
