Columbia Pictures' Monster House, the second film to employ the ground-breaking "Performance Capture," innovation developed by Sony Pictures Imageworks, will be released in more than 100 theaters in REAL D's revolutionary digital 3-D format day-and-date with its 2D national release on July 21, 2006, it was announced today by Rory Bruer, President of Domestic Distribution, Sony Pictures.

The imagery for the ImageMovers/Amblin Production of Monster House is being overseen by Sony Pictures Imageworks, which also oversaw ImageMovers' first "Performance Capture" film The Polar Express, a film that was released in IMAX 3-D with the help of Sony Pictures Imageworks.

"Monster House is the perfect film for REAL D's innovative technology," said Bruer. "It literally adds another dimension to the filmgoing experience and enhances the film's entertainment value."

"Moviegoers are clearly looking for new experiences from their local multiplex, and we are delighted to work with Sony Pictures and our exhibition partners to deliver the future of cinema," said Michael V. Lewis, Chairman, REAL D. "This partnership advances our goal of capturing a vast theatrical footprint for REAL D Cinema so that audiences worldwide can experience incredibly lifelike 3D entertainment from Columbia Pictures and our growing roster of content partners."

"As a leader in visual effects and character animation, we are constantly developing new technologies to enable filmmakers to tell their stories," said Tim Sarnoff, President, Sony Pictures Imageworks. "REAL D Cinema truly enables a movie-goer to experience a film versus just watching it, and we look forward to working with them on such an exciting project."

"Monster House is perfect to be presented in 3D," said Steve Starkey, the film's producer and principal in ImageMovers, "as was proved on The Polar Express. I'm thrilled that we once again have this opportunity."
