A Monster in Paris Trailer

"He's not a monster!" This isn't directed by Luc Besson, but it is produced by him. A new English-language trailer has debuted recently via TIFF's YouTube for A Monster in Paris, a 3D animated adventure about a monster who lives in a garden in Paris and his love for a beautiful, young singer. The English voice cast includes Vanessa Paradis, Catherine O'Hara, Danny Huston, Adam Goldberg and Bob Balaban. This actually looks quite fun, it reminds me of Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs in a way. I don't like re-dubbing with English actors either, but it doesn't look as bad as Arthur and the Invisibles. Check out this trailer below!

Watch the official English-language trailer for Bibo Bergeron's A Monster in Paris, via YouTube:

Paris, 1910: having unintentionally unleashed a monster from an eccentric scientist’s greenhouse, Emile the projectionist, Raoul the inventor and Lucille, an enchanting cabaret singer, embark on this 3D laugh-out-loud adventure with brilliantly crafted animation, action, comedy, romance and musical numbers.

A Monster in Paris, or Un Monstre à Paris, is directed by Bibo Bergeron, an animator/storyboard artist, who last co-directed Shark Tale in 2004 and The Road to El Dorado before that. The screenplay is by Bibo Bergeron & Stéphane Kazandjian. This was produced by Luc Besson and Europa Corp. It's set to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival next month, but doesn't have a U.S. release date yet, so stay tuned for an update.

    That movie seemed to be all over the place. Not sure about the flea, i don't think I can warm up to him as a "nice" monster i should feel sad about. Music sounded okay though.

      Produced by Besson: good. Bibo Bergeron: also good, (I really liked The Road to El Dorado), but you're right, this is all over the place. Solid rental me thinks but it might one day make for a good double feature along with Besson's live action Adele Blanc-Sec.

        The trailer might be all over the place but Maybe the film will not be. Going to give it a chance as it appeals to me. Music was very enjoyable.
  • Looked kinda dull and boring. Meh.
  • Love the visual style. 
    • Me too, the city looked amazing.

    I'll wait to the DVD just to see it in it's actual language

    the french trailer reveals more about the 'singing flea' and he is way more in depth than this percieves him to be, and the song behind the action in this trailer was alot more enchanting on 'Frank's' part in the original language! But I am still thrilled to see this in English!!
    •  I'd definitely like to see it in the original French, even though this dub seems very well done. I was a bit surprised at how little they covered the monster, so I hopped on over to see the French trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnCJTv5Az4A The French trailer did a better job of introducing the premise of the movie, it seems very charming. After seeing both, I'd say the English trailer is trying to make the film more appealing to boys, by focusing on the male cast and the monkey, and not so much the woman and flea musical act.

        "After seeing both, I'd say the English trailer is trying to make the film more appealing to boys" I think that's a very astute assumption.

    Shark Tale... Road to El Dorado... this is the guy they want to invest in to make a feature film? Good god, man. These bean counters need to wake up and smell the coffee. Try investing in some real talent for a change.

    I've seen the movie last week and it's very good ! And, despite it's a french movie, the original langage was english ! But I agree, the french teaser is more better. It's really a funny movie, very touching with an amazing music ! It's far away from american blockbuster. This trailer try to sell it like a Dreamworks things, and it's a bad idea. It have his own identity, why hide it ??

    A giant singing flea... huh yea... easy pass.
    • Jericho
      for some reason..i heard the same thing about talking toys when someone was told about toy story 
  • Nathan Cook
    I will give it a chance. Looks like it could be alright. I enjoyed El Dorado. Mostly. And it's not like they're similar subject matter, so perhaps this'll be better? Shame about it being CG, though, and not hand-drawn.
  • Loser
    Looks sweet, charming and fun
  • Robotprophet
    awwww. looks good!
  • Harvestman
    A musical monkey, a "monster who covers his face with a mask", cute girl who sings and a man named Raul, all taking place in Paris. Looks like a really nice little "Phantom of the Opera" story (Im thinking of the webber version of course) kinda story. Of course its not a animated version of the opera ghost but it sure has a few references, and thats what mede me interested. Im in!
  • Alienor
    Just saw it and I love it! I think the English trailer doesn't sow how good the movie actually is. The music's haunting me now and I can't wait to get the DVD!
