'Monsters Inc. 2' for November 2012
APRIL 24, 2010 - Pixar's Monsters Inc. 2 will come out of the closet in 3D on Nov. 16, 2012, Walt Disney Pictures announced recently. Another Pixar picture, The Bear and the Bow, gets a title change to Brave and a new release date, June 15, 2012.
Marking Pixar's fourth sequel following Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3 and Cars 2, Monsters Inc. 2 will mirror the holiday launch of its predecessor, only it won't open as early due to DreamWorks Animation's The Guardians (working title) occupying the Nov. 2, 2012, slot.
The first Monsters, Inc. was Pixar's fourth tremendous success. It made its debut on Nov. 2, 2001, and raked in US$62.6 million its first weekend (or around US$85 million adjusted for ticket price inflation). It went on to gross US$255.9 million (which is comparable to nearly US$350 million today), and it didn't hit DVD until Sept. 17, 2002.
Previously scheduled for Christmas 2011, Brave is reportedly about a defiant Scottish princess, and it continues Pixar's June release strategy. Pixar's next release is Toy Story 3 on June 18, while Cars 2 zooms in a year later on June 24, 2011. Source: Boxoffice Mojo
