The article reports that DreamWorks Animation Inc. will be postponing the release of the three-dimensional animated motion picture "Monsters vs. Aliens" by one week to May 15, 2009. The postponement of the motion picture release was done to avoid a direct showdown with the three-dimensional animated motion picture "Avatar," by James Cameron. "Monsters vs. Aliens" is an irreverent, modern-day update of the classic 1950's motion picture and is being directed by Conrad Vernon and Rob Letterman.
