THE big movie release for children this week is MONSTERS VS ALIENS (PG).

When California girl Susan Murphy is unexpectedly clobbered by a meteor full of outer space gunk, she grows to 50ft and is instantly labelled a "monster" called Ginormica.

She is captured and held in a secret government compound.

And it seems the army has been quietly rounding up other monsters over the years, including insect-headed scientist Dr Cockroach, half-ape, half-fish The Missing Link, indestructible BOB and 350ft grub Insectosaurus.

Witherspoon says of her character: "Susan is a great character, and it's fun to see somebody become a superhero - to suddenly have that kind of super strength. Don't we all sort of dream about those things?"

And Laurie, who does the voice for Dr Cockroach, says: "I love doing animated projects. You wear your own clothes.

"I love the freedom of messing around and trying to create something in a voice. It's exciting and a fun challenge.

"But also, now these animated films have sort of really become the summit of modern entertainment."
