Watch: Fun TV Spot for Disney & Pixar's 'Monsters Inc' 3D Re-release
"Get ready to take the ride of you life!" I love Boo. Disney & Pixar have put out a TV spot for the upcoming re-release of Monsters Inc in 3D, arriving on December 19th just before the holidays. While it's only 15 seconds of footage we've all seen before, my love for Monsters Inc is so strong, I have to share it anyway. Plus it's rather interesting to note how they're selling 3D nowadays, using black bars and animation outside the frame to illustrate an illusion of 3D even to 2D viewers. Kinda smart, but obviously not the same as the real thing. This is such an outstanding movie, and it builds even more anticipation for Monsters U next year.
Pixar's Monsters Inc, directed by Pete Docter (who went on to direct Pixar's Up), and co-directed by David Silverman (later of The Simpsons Movie) & Lee Unkrich (later of Toy Story 3), was first released in early November of 2001. It is Pixar's fourth movie, following Toy Story 2 released two years prior. The story involves Sulley and Mike Wazowski, scarers for Monsters Inc., whose lives are changed when a little girl named Boo wanders into their world. As listed on this poster, Disney/Pixar's Monsters Inc 3D will arrive in theaters December 19th, a mere five days after The Hobbit lands in theaters in 3D. We'll keep an eye out.
