Last month, Samsung announced plans to unleash a 3D starter kit, which would feature a 3D copy of the DreamWorks film, “Monsters vs. Aliens”. Now it looks like Amazon is selling that kit.
The Samsung 3D Starter Kit includes two pairs of the company’s active 3D glasses. However, we are really clamoring for the title that it comes with, which is the 2009 animated release Monsters vs. Aliens.
Slimy cartoon monsters coming at you sound like a pretty cool way to kick off the at-home 3D experience. According to Samsung, the kit will be compatible with select 2010 Samsung models, including the C7000, C8000 and C9000 series LED-LCD HDTVs, the C750 series LCD HDTV, C7000 and C8000 series plasma HDTVs, and BD-C6900 Blu-ray players.
Monsters vs. Aliens is about a young woman (voiced by Reese Witherspoon), whose brush with a meteorite turns her into a monster. Other famous voices include Seth Rogen, Hugh Laurie, Kiefer Sutherland, Stephen Colbert, and Paul Rudd.
This is the first official Blu-ray release for the new 3D format. DreamWorks also plans to unleash the entire Shrek series later this year.
