Attention readers in the Los Angeles area! Ain’t It Cool News has just reported: If you live or will be in the LA area on Saturday October 2nd, Will Ferrell and Dreamworks want YOU to join them for the largest gathering of superheroes. Ferrell is hoping the stunt will gain publicity for his new animated film Megamind, opening November 5.
Megamind is the latest from Dreamworks Animation, and is a twist on the Superman story. The all-star voice cast includes Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Jonah Hill, and Tina Fey. With a unique premise, and a very funny trailer, Megamind has the potential for being a hit just like Despicable Me.
If you’re interested, plan on arriving early to beat traffic. Or you could just strap on a rocket pack. Just don’t hurt yourselves.
Official press release:
Will Ferrell (aka Megamind), DreamWorks Animation and Guinness World Records
WHAT: Join Will Ferrell and 1,500 of his closest costumed superhero friends as they attempt to make heroic history and claim the Guinness World Records title for the Largest Gathering of Superheroes. The Mega-event hosted by DreamWorks Animation is open to all caped crusaders wishing to join the fun.
To qualify for the record attempt, all interested participants must arrive dressed as an easily recognisable superhero that has appeared in a published book, comic, television program or film, as stipulated by the record guidelines. The feat will be judged by official Guinness World Records Adjudicator and Spokesperson, Stuart Claxton and will require a minimum of 1,501 superheroes to break the current world record.
The world record attempt will mark the kickoff of MegaMonth, an official month dedicated to Mega-events across the country in celebration of the release of MEGAMIND on November 5th.
