Yesterday at ShoWest in Las Vegas, Dreamworks previewed the film ‘Monster vs. Aliens’, the first computer animated film to be shot in 3D. Traditionally these computer animated movies first have a non-3D version that are later dimensionalized, this new, “ultimate 3D,” is shot entirely as 3D. To film in this manner costs the studios an extra $15 million, but they say that the experience, though costly, will be worth spending the extra money to see it. I don’t think an extra $15 million is that much really, but that’s because I’m loaded. I mean, I typed this article with $100 dollar bills on a keyboard made out of diamonds.
This film, a spoof of the cheesy 50’s sci-fi movies, is set to be released March 27, 2009 and will feature the voice of Reese Witherspoon.
