MONSTERS VS. ALIENS

When Susan Murphy (Reese Witherspoon) 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 by General W.R. Monger (Kiefer Sutherland) and held in a secret government compound filled with other “monsters” like herself. This ragtag group consists of the brilliant but insect-headed Dr. Cockroach P.H.D. (Hugh Laurie); the macho half-ape-half-fish The Missing Link (Will Arnett); the gelatinous and indestructible B.O.B. (Seth Rogen); and the 350-foot grub called Insectosaurus. Their confinement time is cut short however, when a mysterious alien robot lands on Earth and the motley crew of Monsters is called into action to save the world from imminent destruction.

B.O.B.’S BIG BREAK

B.O.B. (Seth Rogen) and his monstrous crew are on a mission to bust out of Area 52, the government’s top-secret holding cell. Led by mad-scientist Dr. Cockroach P.H.D. (Hugh Laurie) and macho amphibian The Missing Link (Will Arnett), the trio outwits grizzled General W.R. Monger (Kiefer Sutherland) to make a triumphant escape…almost.

Monstrous Marketing Campaign

The MONSTERS VS. ALIENS DVD and Blu-ray debut will be supported by a monstrous marketing program including an extensive advertising campaign that will generate hundreds of millions of impressions across national television, print and online media outlets. In addition, DVD and Blu-ray messaging will be extended further through promotional alliances with a wide range of companies including Carl’s Jr.┬« and Hardees Restaurants┬«, Chuck E. Cheese’s, Energizer, Hostess Snack Cakes, Litehouse, Tyson Foods and Wrigley.
