Megamind opens in theaters today, and Dreamworks movie execs are pulling out all the stops. Who has reaped the coolest benefits from the new animated release? FarmVille players. Oh, and Justin Bieber.
Justin went to the L.A. premiere of the film last week, where he met one of his idols Will Ferrell, who voices the movie's main character. The former Saturday Night Live comedian appeared on Jimmy Kimmel recently, where he talked extensively about the 16-year-old pop star.
"Still kinda buggin out about this," Justin wrote on his Facebook page along with a link to the video.. "Huge Will Ferrell fan. That's the dude. We live our lives in 3D. haha. Make sure you check out his new movie MEGAMIND this weekend. EPIC."
Dreamworks has also done something really cool for the release of the film by teaming up with Zynga, the maker of FarmVille, to hook players up with a special Mega-Farm in which users can see special content from the animated movie. Two special items will also be available to those who visit Megamind's farm: a special Mega-Grow formula that helps to instantly grow crops and a collectable decorative item that you can put on your own farm.
The Mega-Farm will be up and running until midnight tonight, celebrating the release of the movie, which also includes the voices of Brad Pitt, Tina Fey and Jonah Hill. Justin already saw the movie at its L.A. premiere, but will you be checking out the animated film this weekend? Are you a fan of FarmVille? Have you peeped out Mega-Farm?
