The trailer and poster for Monsters Inc. 3D attempts to lure you back into the closet

Well, the 3D rehash-rollercoaster continues, this time with MONSTERS INC. 3D, following just three months after FINDING NEMO 3D debuts. On one hand I can see the merits of re-releasing these films as kids and adults both love them, but on the other it really does reek of a lazy cash grab.  That term is getting a little tired, but it does ring true for certain occasions. I'd much rather wait for the unnecessary sequel, MONSTERS UNIVERSITY.

I love Pixar films and think the studio produces some of the finest animation work in the industry, perhaps the best, but there just isn't a good enough reason to re-release these in 3D.  I'm all for re-releases in general as it can be beyond awesome to catch an old favorite on the big screen again, but let's face it, with both MONSTERS INC. 3D and FINDING NEMO 3D, we're basically filling the coffers and nothing more.  However, if it makes you and/or the kids happy, then that can be enough and I'll leave it at that.

Get back in the closet:

Here's the synopsis:

Lovable Sulley (voiced by John Goodman) and his wisecracking best friend Mike Wazowski (voiced by Billy Crystal) are the top scare team at Monsters, Inc., the largest scream-processing factory. The main power source in the monster world is the collected screams of human children—and at Monsters, Inc., an elite team of scarers is responsible for gathering those precious natural resources. Believed by monsters to be toxic, children are strictly forbidden from entering Monstropolis. But when a little girl named Boo (voiced by Mary Gibbs) accidentally follows Sulley back into his world, he finds his career in jeopardy and his life in utter chaos. So pals Mike and Sulley plot to rectify the mistake and return Boo to her home. But when the trio encounters an unexpected series of complications, they become embroiled in a cover-up catapulting them into a mystery beyond their wildest dreams.

MONSTERS INC. 3D starts scaring up your dollars on December 19th, 2012 and MONSTERS UNIVERSITY will creep onto screens June 21, 2013.
