Review after the jump…
Congratulations, kids! We did it! Toy Story 3, one the best animated, and live-action, movies of these past few years has become the highest grossing animated film of all time. The film has brought in more than $920 million worldwide, surpassing Dreamworks Animation's Shrek 2 ($919.8 million worldwide) for the title. All I can say is, daaaaaaaamn, that's a lot of cheddar in Woody and Buzz's pocket.
/Film points out that the price of 3D tickets must also be considered when comparing these box office numbers. Shrek 2 didn't have the benefit of charging theater patrons $20 a pop to see more stuff jump out at them. A film like The Lion King made $783.8 million worldwide in 1994, a number which would be adjusted to $1.54 billion today. Daaaaaamn, that's a lot of cheddar in Mufasa's pocket. Oh wait, he died in the film. RETROACTIVE SPOILER ALERT!
The sick bastards over at Holy Taco whipped this poster up. Looks entertaining, but I always thought Buzz Lightyear was a Spaceman, not a Rabbit.
Toy Story 3 ruled its second weekend at the box office, bringing in $59 million. An estimated 57% of its revenue was from 3D screenings.The film easily crushed its closest competition, Grown Ups ($41 million) and Knight and Day ($27.8 million) thanks in no small part to the fact that Toy Story had a more substantial plot and more realistic, likable characters. Get it? It's ironic because Toy Story is a cartoon about toys!Ugh, never mind. (Empire Online)
Toy Story 3 lead the box office this weekend, bringing in an estimated $109 million. It was the largest opening ever for a Pixar film and the third largest opening so far in 2010.The success of Toy Story should come as no surprise to anyone who pays attention to movie trends. The box office numbers simply prove what we here at Screen Junkies have known for years: kids love Tim Allen. (Coming Soon)
I'm Jake! Howdy, howdy, howdy!
In this exclusive, behind the scenes look at Toy Story 3, Ned Beatty and Michael Keaton join an ensemble cast for the most powerful chapter to date in the beloved franchise. When Andy heads off to college, adventure fanatic Buzz Lightyear (Tim Allen) takes his toy friends on a river-rafting trip into the dangerous American back-country. During a chance encounter with a group of locals, an offhand comment about moonshine by Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear (Beatty) leads to a violent sexual assault. The trip soon descends into a nightmare in which both nature and mankind conspire against the toys, putting their lives and perhaps even their souls at risk. (LatinoReview) Watch Ned Beatty's powerful performance in Toy Story 3 after the jump.
Think you can pull the wool over MY eyes, Pixar?! I knew this video for a supposed Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear was a Toy Story 3 ploy the second I hit play. Sure, it looks authentic, but if this bear really existed I would have owned the crap out of it back in 1983. It doesn't even matter that a bear with the word "hug" in its name doesn't even give hugs but instead just receives them (like a normal stuffed animal?), or that the grindhouse-esque commercial cuts off right before the bear slaughters the little girl in her sleep and then goes for the rest of the family. I simply had to have everything I saw advertised, or mother got the hose again. Check out the surprisingly well-done video after the jump. It must have taken the Pixar geniuses months to render the fuzzy tracking at the bottom of the frame.
The toys happily welcome Pervert the Octopus to the group. Nothing makes me giddy like a Pixar trailer. Those (evil?) geniuses always knock it out of the park, and Toy Story 3 looks like no exception. All of our favorite toys are back, and they're mixing it up with a new batch of playthings when they're donated to a day care center. You'd think the rest of the movie would follow Woody and Buzz as tiny tots jam them into various orifices, but instead it appears they're loving their new home. In The Closet Ken, voiced by Michael Keaton, convinces himself he has feelings for Barbie inspite of the new cowboy arrival, and Pervert the Octopus offers up massages (with happy endings, no doubt). Everything's right as rain until the toys find out their abandoner, Andy, is looking for them. They decide to break out and go in search for the owner who cast them aside like yesterday's garbage when he decided to go better himself at college. What a selfish prick. You don't deserve these special toys, Andy! They're too good for you! You hear me, Dad?! Oops… That's an issue I need to take elsewhere. Check out the trailer after the jump. Toy Story 3 hits theaters June 18th.
Disney-Pixar are slowly dumping out Toy Story 3's toy chest to reveal 14 new characters from the upcoming sequel. Today we meet Ken. He combines the masculinity of Dirk Benedict with the fashion sense of Jim Jay Bullock. It looks like Barbie's finally found real love after G.I. Joe's crippling PTS drove a wedge down the middle of their happy union. Good for her. I can't see anything wrong here. From Disney-Pixar:Grab your binoculars and join Ken on a safari! A swinging bachelor who’s always on the lookout for fun, Ken sports the perfect outfit for his eco-adventure: light blue shorts and a leopard-print shirt with short sleeves sure to keep him cool in the hot sun. And after his exciting expedition, Ken will be ready to hit the dance floor in style. His accessories include matching scarf, sensible loafers and a fashion-forward gold belt. Dozens of additional Ken outfits sold separately.You're gonna have to keep a leash on this one Barbie. One that matches the chaps preferably. (HeyUGuys)
