Four New Retro Character Posters for Monsters vs Aliens

We were just sent over four new retro character posters for DreamWorks Animation's upcoming Monsters vs Aliens animated feature. I'm sure I don't need to explain that these are designed to look like classic movie posters. While the story is new, the film is an animated throwback to those kind of classic movies. DreamWorks' concept for this was to combine the classic monster movies with classic alien movies, and thus we now have Monsters vs Aliens. So check out these four new posters below and don't forget to pick up your 3-D glasses to see the 3-D trailer during the Super Bowl next weekend.
Providing their voices for the film are Hugh Laurie as Dr. Cockroach, Reese Witherspoon as Ginormica, Will Arnett as The Missing Link, Rainn Wilson as Gallaxhar, and Seth Rogen as B.O.B. (not pictured).
Monsters vs Aliens is directed by DreamWorks filmmakers Rob Letterman (of Shark Tale previously) and Conrad Vernon (of Shrek 2 previously). Oddly, DreamWorks never revealed who the writers were, which makes me a bit worried that this was a studio-wide collaboration. Paramount will debut Monsters vs Aliens in both IMAX 3D and regular theaters on March 27th, 2009 next year. See everyone in theaters!
