Monsters Vs. Aliens
There weren't a lot of horror films or TV shows honored during the 36th Annual Saturn Awards, presented last night, June 24th, by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films, but those that were certainly are deserving.
As Dread Central's resident awards show junkie, it is my mission to make sure our like-minded readers don't miss out on any opportunity to participate in such events if they are so inclined. On tap for today: the ShoWest 2009 Fan Choice Award. Along with voting for the movie of your choice, you can enter Fandango’s Fan Choice Sweepstakes to win a trip to the star-studded show in Las Vegas.
With no kids of my own, I really have no idea if It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is appreciated by modern audiences or if it's just my generation that gathers around the TV each Halloween season to watch it one more time. If your kids (or the kid inside you) complain there's nothing "cool" to watch, how about checking out Monsters vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins from Outer Space?
We didn't provide a ton of coverage of Monsters Vs. Aliens when it was released theatrically, but considering 3D technology is such a hot topic nowadays, we thought this latest bit of news about the film's DVD format was topical and timely: Despite the fact that 3D showings accounted for 58% of the CG-animated film’s opening weekend box office take, home viewers won't have the same choice as it's only being released in 2D on DVD and Blu-ray.
A whole bunch of films have been granted ratings recently, among them a film or two I’m surprised took this long to settle on a letter for.
I’ve been waiting for something to see from the upcoming animated film Monsters Vs. Aliens since the first word came down on the film, but information has been slow in the coming, to say the least. Finally a trailer has arrived, and thankfully it was worth the wait!
Activision has just announced a new game based upon the new Dreamworks Animation 3D film Monsters Vs. Aliens. The film itself, due out in March of 2009, is a comedic homage to the classic 50's monster movie which pits a gang of misfit terrestrial monsters against an unstoppable alien force.
A young girl is turned into a monster when she is struck by a metiorite. She's taken to a government facility where she meets other monsters, who are called into action to defend Earth when we're attacked by aliens.

It’s a very small bit, and unfortunately the video is not embeddable, but if you head on over to Sci Fi Wire right now you can see a very cool behind-the-scenes featurettes for Monsters Vs. Aliens, the upcoming animated monster movie from Dreamworks.
Either Dreamworks has a lot of confidence in ToyQuest or they’re not too thrilled about their first 3D animated film, Monsters Vs. Aliens.
Aside from some initial early rumblings about what the film will be about, it’s been a while since we heard a peep from Dreamworks Animation regarding Monsters Vs. Aliens. Today their vow of silence was broken to USA Today and a new pic has been revealed.
While I’m just as excited as the next guy to see how James Cameron follows up the untouchable success of Titanic with his 3D live action/CG hybrid Aavatar, luckily I won’t have to miss it opening weekend because its competition just moved out of the way.
