I received my film cell montage (The Dark Knight Mini Montage Film Cell) a few days ago. It looks great and is in mint condition. I love the choice of cells. I also; like how sturdy and protective the shipping package is.
Thanks again for your prompt and courteous help. Have a great week.
Toy Story 3
Toy Story 3
This article contains indepth information about Toy Story 3, the third installment in the Toy Story series.
Story 3" is an upcoming American 2010 computer-animated 3D film and IMAX 3D
film, being produced by Pixar Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney
Pictures. It is the third installment in the Toy Story series and is
scheduled for release on June 18, 2010 in the United States and July 23, 2010 in
the United Kingdom and Ireland. Lee Unkrich takes over as director. Ken
Schretzmann is the editor.
Andy, now nearly an adult, (18 years old), is just five days away from heading off to college, and his remaining toys, including Woody and Buzz Lightyear, are worried about their uncertain future as many other toys (such as Bo Peep and Wheezy) have been "yard saled" over the years.
Andy plans to keep Woody and put the others in the attic and places them in trash bags, but his mother sees this trash bag and takes it outside, not knowing that the toys are inside it.
Woody goes to save his friends but it turns out that the toys escaped and are hiding in the back of the Davis's car, thinking Andy has thrown them away. Jessie thinks that the toys should take charge of their own destiny, and convinces them to stow away in a box of other toys headed for donation to Sunnyside Daycare, while Woody attempts to explain to the toys that they were accidentally thrown away. Before they can leave, Andy's mom closes the back door and drives to Sunnyside to donate some old toys.
The gang arrives at Sunnyside just as the children leave for recess. The Sunnyside toys welcome Andy's toys with open arms, including the leader of the daycare, Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear (A.K.A. "Lotso"), and a smooth-talking Ken doll, who falls in love with Molly's Barbie doll. The toys are keen on starting a new life at the daycare, except for Woody, who has suspicions about the daycare because of the Chatter Telephone, and also thinks that the toys shouldn't turn their back on Andy so quickly.
The toys think Woody should stay with them at Sunnyside, but Woody reluctantly leaves to find Andy. Woody escapes from Sunnyside using a hang glider, but ends up losing his hat and getting stuck on the branch of a tree. Woody is soon taken home by a sweet little girl from Sunnyside named Bonnie, who takes him to meet her own toys, including Trixie the triceratops, Mr. Pricklepants the Hedgehog, Dolly, Chuckles the Clown, and Buttercup the Unicorn. As Woody tries to recuperate himself and continue his search for Andy, Chuckles explains to Woody the dangers of Sunnyside.
Chuckles tells Woody that himself, Lotso, and Big Baby, one of Lotso's henchmen, were once owned by a loving girl named Daisy. However, one day, she accidentally left them at the countryside. They returned to Daisy's house to find that Daisy's parents bought a new Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear for her, leaving Lotso feeling betrayed and confused. The toys went to Sunnyside where Lotso and Big Baby quickly rose to power and transformed the daycare into a toy prison, while Chuckles was taken home by Bonnie.
Woody quickly realizes that he must save his friends and get back to Andy before he leaves.
Non-speaking characters include Bullseye, Big Baby, Totoro, and the Monkey.
Several of Andy's other toys (such as Bo Peep, RC, and Wheezy) from the first two films appear in the movie, during a sequence of home videos showing younger Andy playing with his toys.
According to the terms of Pixar's revised deal with Disney, all characters created by Pixar for their films were owned by Disney. Furthermore, Disney retains the rights to make sequels to any Pixar film, though Pixar retained the right of first refusal to work on these sequels. But in 2004, when the contentious negotiations between the two companies made a split appear likely, Disney Chairman at the time Michael Eisner put in motion plans to produce Toy Story 3 at a new Disney studio, Circle 7 Animation. Tim Allen, the voice of Buzz Lightyear, indicated a willingness to return even if Pixar was not on board.
Jim Herzfeld wrote a script for Circle 7's version of the film. It focused on the other toys shipping a malfunctioning Buzz to Taiwan, where he was built, believing that he will be fixed there. While searching on the Internet, they find out that many more Buzz Lightyear toys are malfunctioning around the world and the company has issued a massive recall. Fearing Buzz's destruction, a group of Andy's toys (Woody, Rex, Slinky, Mr. Potato Head, Hamm, Jessie, and Bullseye) venture to rescue Buzz. At the same time Buzz meets other toys from around the world that were once loved but have now been recalled.
In January 2006, Disney bought Pixar in a deal that put Pixar chiefs Edwin Catmull and John Lasseter in charge of all Disney Animation. Shortly thereafter, Circle 7 Animation was shut down and its version of Toy Story 3 was shelved. The following month, Disney CEO Robert Iger confirmed that Disney was in the process of transferring the production to Pixar. John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter, and Lee Unkrich visited the house where they first pitched "Toy Story" and came up with the story for the film over a weekend. Stanton then wrote a treatment. On February 8, 2007, Catmull announced Toy Story 2's co-director, Lee Unkrich, as the sole director of the film instead of John Lasseter, and Michael Arndt as Screenwriter. The release date was moved to 2010.
Instead of sending Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, and John Ratzenberger scripts for their consideration in reprising their roles, a complete story reel of the film was shown to the actors in a theater. The reel was made up of moving storyboards with pre-recorded voices, sound effects, and music. At the conclusion of the preview, the actors signed on to the film.
Dolby Laboratories announced that Toy Story 3 will be the first movie that will feature the Dolby Surround 7.1 audio format.
The film's first teaser trailer was released with the Disney Digital 3-D version of the film Up on May 29, 2009. On October 2, 2009 Toy Story and Toy Story 2 were re-released as a double feature in Disney Digital 3-D. The first full-length trailer was attached as an exclusive sneak peek and a first footage to the Toy Story double feature, on October 12, 2009. A second teaser was released on February 10, 2010, followed by a second full-length trailer on February 11 and appeared in 3D showings of "Alice in Wonderland". On March 23, 2010, Toy Story was released on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack which included a small feature of "The Story of Toy Story 3". Also, "Toy Story 2" was released on that day in the same format which had a small feature on the "Characters of Toy Story 3. On May 11, 2010, both films had a DVD-only re-release which contained the features.
Mattel Thinkway Toys and Lego are among those who will make toys to promote the film. Disney Interactive Studios has also produced a video game based on the film which is to be released June 15 2010.
Toy Story 3 was featured in Apple's iPhone OS 4 Event on 7 June 2010, with Steve Jobs demoing a Toy Story 3 themed iAd written in HTML5.
Pixar designed a commercial for a toy, Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear, and formatted it to look like it came from an old VCR recording. The recording was altered with distorted sound, noise along the bottom of the screen, and flickering video, all designed to make it look like a converted recording from the 1980s. A Japanese version of the commercial was also released online.
On Dancing With the Stars' May 11, 2010 episode, the Gipsy Kings performed a Spanish language version of the song You've Got A Friend In Me. It also featured a paso doble dance which will be featured in the film. It was choreographed by Cheryl Burke and Tony Dovolani.
So far, early reviews for the film have been extremely positive. Peter Debruge from Variety gave the film a positive review saying: "This tertiary adventure delivers welcome yet nonessential fun, landing well after its creators have grown up and succeeded toying with more sophisticated stories." Michael Rechtshaffen from Hollywood Reporter also gave the film a positive review, saying: "Woody, Buzz and playmates make a thoroughly engaging, emotionally satisfying return." On the Rotten Tomatoes website, it was given a 100% on the tomato meter and a score of 8.8/10.
