New ‘Monsters vs. Aliens’ Trailer Spoofs Sci-fi Panic

A while back, we introduced you to the characters of Dreamworks’ forthcoming film, Monsters vs. Aliens, an animated feature where the government is forced to turn to monsters to defeat a race of invading aliens. The premise is cool enough and the cast is heavy on humor: Seth Rogen, Will Arnett, Paul Rudd, Hugh Laurie, Reese Witherspoon, Rainn Wilson, and the added bad ass touch of Kiefer Sutherland. Oh, and the mix of bad ass and jokester that is Stephen T. Colbert.

Now, the new trailer for the 1960s sci-fi spoof is online and looking for laughs:

This looks like another hit from Dreamworks. It’s got a great cast, and if the jokes in the trailer are any indication, it’s a got a great sense of humor and finally exposes the truth about having to have your butt scanned before speaking to the president.

What do you think? Does the trailer make you want to check out Monsters vs. Aliens? Would you have your butt scanned just to enter the war room? Will there be a character with Alien Hand Syndrome?
