Dreamworks’ upcoming animated film Monsters vs. Aliens is shaping up to be their funniest release yet.  Sure it’s directed by Rob Letterman, the writer/director of the abysmal Shark Tale, but the man seems to have learned a lot since then.  At the very least, he’s assembled an awesome cast of voices… Seth Rogen, Hugh Laurie, Stephen Colbert, Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, Kiefer Sutherland, Will Arnett, and Rainn Wilson.  Sweet.

Even more important than the cast is the writing, and judging by this new trailer (as well as the first one) it looks to be hysterically funny.  When is the last time an animated movie mentioned boobies?  (And no, Heavy Metal doesn’t count.)  And it’s in 3-D!  Monsters vs. Aliens will be unleashed March 27th, 2009.

What do you think of the new trailer?  Is Pixar’s throne at risk?  Maybe not in regard to the film’s ‘heartfelt’ quotient… but it sure looks funnier than anything Pixar’s done in a while…
