New MONSTERS, INC. Poster Has An Eye On The 3D Re-Release!!
The Kidd here...
You had to know a concept like this was coming to get you primed and ready for the 3-D re-release of MONSTERS, INC. landing in theatres now later this year, just in time to take advantage of the hole in the holiday schedule where a family film usually resides.
Today Disney and Pixar released a new one sheet for the MONSTERS, INC. 3-D featuring Mike Wazowski (with one I/eye) sporting the glasses he'll need to experience his flick once again on the big screen...
We can bicker all we want about whether or not the 3-D conversion adds anything, but it's still a way for new generations of audiences to get to check out some of Disney and Pixar's films on the big screen for the first time ever. The Pixar films lend themselves to the post-conversion a lot better than the traditional 2-D animated features, so, between FINDING NEMO and this, I'm looking forward to taking my kids to see the movie magic of them on something bigger than our TV.

Question: Who pays to watch a decade old movie again in 3D while paying even MORE the 2nd time around? Hint: P.T. Barnum described these people as being "Born every minute."

Monsters Inc was average by Pixar standards.

But, God damn, Cars 2 was a steaming pile of crap. Just one big toy commercial. It should have been a direct to blu.

This is an unnecessary re-release just to "remind" audiences of Monsters inc, to prepare them for the upcoming unnecessary sequel.

I thought I read somewhere that they re-released some of the older cartoons (Snow White, Bambi, ect) years after their first run. If that is true then perhaps this whole money grab thing isn't nothing new and shouldn't be looked at as the greed that it is. Maybe they really do just want to share the magic with a younger generation. Either way when can we get Goodfellas, or American History X 3-D. Play an old movie that I actually wouldn't mind seeing on the screen again. I wouldn't mind some curb stomping in 3-D.

Disney used to re-release their animated films all the time. It's not really something new for them though with the advent of home video>dvd>bluray it's become much less common.
Sept. 4, 2012, 6:45 p.m. CST
I will not support crap like this with my money. All they can do is re-release old stuff instead of coming up with new things

Brave should have been amazing but blew...

I don't get how anyone enjoys him when he hosts the Oscars...maybe it's an Emperor's New Clothes sort of thing? He just sucks.
Sept. 4, 2012, 7:24 p.m. CST
Gone with the Wind, Sound of Music, King Kong, etc, etc all had multiple theatrical re-releases. It is probably done less now at any time in history because of home video. There are a few movies i would go see in the theater again but Monsters Inc is not one of them. But apparently a big demand for these as recent 3D rereleases has shown.
Sept. 4, 2012, 7:38 p.m. CST
I guess I'm one of the few who enjoyed Monsters Inc. had to fight the tears at the scene where he goes back to Boos room at the end. Probably cause i love kids. meh. I might go see this.

. . . I remember thinking it paled in comparison to most of the other Pixar flicks. But we dug out the DVD for our 3 year old twins over the weekend and I liked it a LOT. More than I did at the theater opening weekend. But of course now it's been played 5 times and I'm sick of it . . .

. . . what the hell is the next Disney animated film going to be? Dying to see if they can make something my girls like as much as Tangled.

Why is everyone forgetting that Wreck it Ralph is coming out in November. Just in time for the holiday season. It is Disney's next animated flick. You're all acting crazy. I'm so pumped for that movie. It looks like the first Video Game movie that will hopefully be worth a damn. Everyone needs to stop acting crazy.
Sept. 4, 2012, 11 p.m. CST
Disney is doing Wreck-It Ralph this year, but your girls will probably be more interested in Frozen next year.

Now it's just a lame recycled poster. http://www.reald.com/images/pages/mva_1sheet_reald_340.jpg

a backwards G until I was 22. I'm 24. Again, don't judge. I didn't think it through.

Lack of depth perception and what have you. It's the same thing for people that have vision problems in one eye, no 3-D for you.

for ripping off his movie treatment "Excuse My Dust" for "Monsters Inc?"
Sept. 5, 2012, 12:18 a.m. CST
Downfall of Pixar? Disney! Pixar left Disney originally because they wanted them to churn out sequels to their hits. Don't know why they went back, because that's exactly what's happening.

Makes the poster kinda ironic [self-sarcastic?] when you consider the WTF expression on his face. And THAT expression is what makes it better than the MvA poster. The happy expression in MvA poster makes it a gimmick, while this one a gag/joke done right.

Anything with CGI is much more easier and less expensive to transfer to 3D than regular animation or live action movies. The reason is, with CGI everything is basically three dimension already, so all they have to do is go back and pivot the scene a little to the right or left to create the "other eye" image. Then when combined with the original film and used with shaded glasses, we get the 3D stereo effect. It will be a long time before Disney gets around to converting their animated classics to 3D, if ever. Also, can someone please tell me how to change my AICN password?
Sept. 5, 2012, 10:33 a.m. CST
How do they do these conversions? Do they convert the finished image (post-conversion 3D) or do they render two slightly different viewpoints (native 3D)
I imagine it would be next to impossible to maintain or reconstruct the rendering pipeline 11 years later in order to render from two angles. But hell, they do have virtually unlimited funds and computing resources.
Sept. 5, 2012, 10:42 a.m. CST
I'll be at this for sure. This might be my favourite Pixar. Only saw it once, can't wait to see the ending with the doors "warehouse" or whatever it was in 3D

Thinking back to seeing this in theatres... was the first time I felt like CG imagery could pass for "real"... Abominable Snowman looks like a "real" puppet
The twist being that I thought it looked like "real" puppets or claymation. Given the design and colouring of everything in the movie, this should be pretty understandable. Also, I think it's pretty awesome that they used basically the same abonimable snowman design from the old stop-motion Rudolph christmas specials.

Agreed...I loved that effect in the first Kung Fu Panda. Not sure if it was intentional or not but the Tai-Leung jail-break scene had a couple shots where the CGI looked like models ala "Nightmare Before Christmas" and it just sold the whole thing for me immediately. I completely freaked out on that movie and I'm not really a Jack Black fan at all. It's also not surprising that good CGI is actually more expensive than good practical - when used as a convenience to save money/work/effort, it can often be mediocre but when it's used to create art, it's a purely amazing medium to create within and absolutely caters to nuance and subtlety. have you seen 'Puss in Boots'? fantastic movie but beyond that, it has truly amazing visuals and tiny details with the most realistic movement i've seen in a cgi flick..truly amazing how far this tech has come since the days of 'The Last Starfighter' and the old Cray supercomputer!

Take my buddy Bigfoot. When he was banished he fashioned an enormous diaper out of poison ivy. Wore it on his head like a tiara. Called himself King Itchy.
