The new Monsters vs. Aliens movie from DreamWorks is to invade cinemas a little earlier than expected.
DreamWorks and Paramount's movie Monsters vs. Aliens will be released into US cinemas on March 27, 2009. The film had been previously slated for its US release on May 15th 2009.
"I believe that next generation 3-D will make our CG films even more special and unique," Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO of DreamWorks, boasted to SFcrowsnest.com. "We are thrilled to have Monster vs. Aliens as the first opportunity for audiences to enjoy this exciting new movie experience. Moving to a March release date, which has proven to be a great slot for family films, allows us to roll out our first 3-D project on the maximum amount of screens as the year's first big event film to hit the market in this new format."
"We are really excited to be distributing Monsters vs. Aliens, the marriage of a new technology with the classic family entertainment audiences have come to expect and love from DreamWorks Animation," spluttered Rob Moore at Paramount. "This new immersive 3-D experience will fully exploit the latest in exhibition technology-and with the March 27 release date, we'll be able to take full advantage by showing it in as many theaters with this advanced 3-D capability as possible."
Monsters vs. Aliens, which aims to reinvent the classic '50s monster movie into an irreverent modern day action comedy, is being directed by Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2) and Rob Letterman (Shark Tale), produced by Lisa Stewart (I Think I Love My Wife) and co-produced by Jill Hopper and Latifa Ouaou.
