Reese Witherspoon, Kiefer Sutherland and Hugh Laurie are among the host of big-name stars lending their voices to DreamWorks Animation’s blockbuster hit Monsters vs Aliens, which oozes its way onto DVD and Blu-ray on 26 October.

Kids, young and old, will want to watch over and over, as Witherspoon’s sweet Susan gets turned into a 50-storey giant, and then locked up in a secret government facility filled with other top-secret monsters, including brainless B.O.B. the blob, mad scientist Dr Cockroach Phd, and The Missing Link. But when the Earth is threatened by an alien attack headed by the dastardly Gallaxhar (The Office’s Rainn Wilson), its up to Susan and her monster club to save the day. Phew!
