MegaMind will debut in theaters on November 5, and DreamWorks Animation is trying to break an interesting record to celebrate their new movie. On October 2, the studio will attempt to break the Guiness Book of World Records mark for "Largest Superhero Gathering" at location L.A. Live (800 W. Olympic Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90015) in downtown Los Angeles.
Star Will Ferrell will be in attendance, and the event will start at 8 AM PST on Saturday, October 2, with a "mega-breakfast" set up for attendees. They will attempt to break the record at 10 AM PST. Take a look at the official details below:
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.
We'll be sure to keep you posted on any further MegaMonth events as soon as we have more information.
