Release Date:




According to the Hollywood Reporter, DreamWorks Animation's MONSTERS VS ALIENS has
been slated for domestic release
May 15th, 2009, a week earlier than previously
announced. Helmed by Conrad Vernon and Rob Letterman, the film is in production and will
be distributed domestically by Paramount Pictures. MONSTERS VS ALIENS -- now
confirmed as the official title with the release date -- will be the first DWA film produced in
stereoscopic 3-D. May 2009 is shaping up to be a crowded month for tentpoles -- and
3-D. James Cameron's 3-D stereoscopic film "Avatar" is slated for May 22, which was the
planned release date for "Monsters." Also, Walt Disney Pictures' "The Chronicles of Narnia:
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" opens May 1.

"We think this is the best spot for us considering the competitive landscape and release
schedule for other animated as well as 3-D product that year,"
said Anne Globe, head of
worldwide marketing and consumer products for DWA.
"Not to mention the fact that this
date worked unbelievably well for us on 'Shrek the Third' as well as other films."
With two
anticipated 3-D stereoscopic films set to debut during the frame, the digital-cinema
community also is watching this release window. Joshua Greer, president and co-founder
of 3-D provider Real D, said his company is on track to have 4,000 3-D-ready
digital-cinema screens installed in the U.S. by May 2009, though that number might
increase. "Monsters" is described as a reinvention of the classic 1950s monster movie into
an irreverent modern-day action comedy. Lisa Stewart will produce the film.
