monsters_inc_ver5Almost a dozen years after its original theatrical release, Disney’s animated classic, MONSTERS INC., is returning to theaters this week for a limited run after being remastered and converted to digital 3D. One of the studio’s most popular and financially successful titles, the film was co-written and co-directed by PETE DOCTER and featured the voice talents of BILLY CRYSTAL, JOHN GOODMAN, JOHN RATZENBERGER, STEVE BUSCEMI, JAMES COBURN, BONNIE HUNT and JENNIFER TILLY. Flush with an abundance of crazy things that go bump in the night, the movie went on to inspire spin-offs and a huge amount of lucrative merchandising. A veteran stand-up comic turned accomplished actor, BILLY CRYSTAL delighted audiences as the voice of the one-eyed Mike Wazowski and when we interviewed him for the original release of the film, he talked about the call from Pixar honcho JOHN LASSETER that he just couldn’t refuse.
