'Monsters vs. Aliens' 3D Blu-ray Hits UK in March – Only From Samsung

Overseas customers who pick up a 3D capable Blu-ray player or TV from Samsung will have first dibs on nabbing 'Monsters vs. Aliens' in 3D.

Samsung loves 'Monsters vs Aliens.' They showed it off at their CES press conference, even going so far as to bring Jeffrey Katzenberg up on stage to talk about 3D. They had it on display on almost every 3D display at their booth. Now they’ve taken it a step further.

Samsung’s 3D components hit UK shelves in March, and they’re coming with a bonus. Anyone who purchases a 3D capable Samsung television or Blu-ray player in the UK will get a copy of the 3D 'Monsters vs. Aliens' Blu-ray.

There has been no announcement for US markets, so it looks like our friends overseas may be getting a DVD release before us. It’s hard not to be a little jealous, but pack-in items being what they are, you may end up with a few copies of 'Monsters vs. Aliens,' just like in the early days of DVD when they couldn’t give out enough copies of 'Lost in Space.'
