"Monster House" & "Nightmare Before Christmas" Make 3-D Returns

by | August 24, 2006 | Comments

A pair of well-received (and mildly spooky) animated films are primed to make their theatrical comebacks … and in 3-D, no less. Sony’s "Monster House" will pop back in on October 6th, while Disney’s cult classic "The Nightmare Before Christmas" arrives on October 20th. (Did I mention that they’re both in 3-D now?)

From The Hollywood Reporter: "Sony Pictures is high on 3-D. The company will re-release its summer animated film "Monster House" for a two-week 3-D engagement before Halloween. Set to bow Oct. 6, the film, from exec producers Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg, will have a two-week 3-D engagement on Real D screens nationwide. Sony plans to release the film on more than 100 screens in advance of its DVD release, set for Oct. 24. "Monster" will come off the limited screens before Buena Vista unveils "Tim Burton‘s The Nightmare Before Christmas" on Oct. 20. "Now we get the opportunity to see ‘Monster’ in 3-D in the theater to remind people what a good movie it is before the DVD comes out," Sony’s president of distribution Rory Bruer said."

I still haven’t seen "Monster House," so this sounds like a perfect excuse to do so — and (like most of you) I really love "Nightmare," so that ticket purchase is a no-brainer.
