Well, would you just take a look at that beauty of a picture coming our way from Dreamworks animation? The little boy in me is just tickled pink to see this. And the adult in me has the money to spend on it. This is our first look at the upcoming Dreamworks release Monsters vs Aliens, which will be filmed in Ultimate 3D.
The story is set to follow a government collected group of monsters including Ginormica the 49 1/2ft woman (Reese Witherspoon), Dr. Cockroach Ph.D (Hugh Laurie), blobular B.O.B. (Seth Rogen), Missing Link (Will Arnet). Also lending their voices are Kiefer Sutherland as General W.R. Monger and Stephen Colbert in the role he was born to play – President of the United States. Rainn Wilson will handle bad guy duties as the alien Gallaxhar.
When this film rolls around, be prepared for a touch of sticker shock. The film seemingly will only play in 3D equipped theaters and will have a few bucks tacked on to help cover the 15 million bucks that it cost to create this new, exciting form of 3D animation. Dreamworks is excited about the new Ultimate 3D, and promise a perfect picture. You’ll still be looking stylish in those dorky glasses, though. Stay tuned for reviews and more photos as the boys at SXSW are rumored to be getting a special preview very soon.
This film sounds like its going to be a lot of fun in a spoofy, 1950s sort of way, and with Dreamworks at the helm and new technology floating their boat, how can it not be great? I really love the look of the characters so far in this first image. I’m excited, are you? Monsters vs Aliens looks to do battle across your cinema March 27th, 2009.
