Monsters vs. Aliens: An IMAX 3D Experience

bigImage When California girl Susan Murphy is unexpectedly clobbered by a meteor full of outer space gunk, she mysteriously grows to 49-feet-11-inches tall and is instantly labeled a "monster" named Ginormica. The military jumps into action, and she is captured and held in a secret government compound. The world learns that the military has been quietly rounding up other monsters over the years. This ragtag group consists of the brilliant but insect-headed Dr. Cockroach, Ph.D.; the macho half-ape, half-fish The Missing Link; the gelatinous and indestructible B.O.B.; and the 350-foot grub called Insectosaurus. Their confinement time is cut short however, when a mysterious alien robot lands on Earth and begins storming the country.

As a last resort, under the guidance of General W.R. Monger (on a desperate order from The President), the motley crew of Monsters is called into action to combat the aliens and save the world from imminent destruction.

The film marks the theatrical debut of DreamWorks Animation's InTru 3D, the studio's proprietary production process of authoring its animated films in 3-D from start to finish.

The film has been digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. The film has a simultaneous release to conventional digital 3D theaters and IMAX 3D theaters.
