Monsters Avoids Avatar Battle

DreamWorks Animation has moved up the 3D CG-animated feature “Monsters vs. Aliens” two months to March 27th 2009 reports the trades.

The date change avoids a head-to-head collision with James Cameron’s “Avatar” which would have meant the films would be fighting over the growing number of digital 3-D screens.

“Monsters” will now look to take advantage of the Easter holiday, which falls on April 12th. It will also go head-to-head with Sony’s animated feature “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs”.
