Another Teaser For ‘WALL•E’

June 27, 2007

walle.gifThere is now a second teaser trailer for Pixar’s 2008 robot movie WALL•E. This one is located in the video game for Ratatouille which opens this week. The trailer is a commercial for a fictional company, Buy n Large, selling WALL•E units.  It also has a website address,, but it doesn’t work…yet.  This film is about a robot doing what he’s made to do, but will soon discover what he’s meant for.  I’ve got the trailer below, so check it out.

‘Ratatouille’ TV Spot

June 17, 2007

ratatouille.gifPixar’s next big thing is Ratatouille, about a rat with aspirations to be a chef in Paris.  I can’t wait and luckily it’s only about 2 weeks away.  Until then, take a look at the new TV spot for the movie.  It’s more or less a cut down version of the trailer, but it’s still worth a look.  Check it out.

First Look At ‘Wall*e’

June 17, 2007

walle.gifI reported last week Pixar’s list of movies to come and on that list was Wall*e.  Simply put, it’s about a robot looking for a home.  The trailer is supposed to be showing with the upcoming Ratatouille, opening June 29,  but  has got the teaser on their site. (Click to check it out)

We don’t get much from the teaser, but the animation looks incredible.  I’m definitely looking forward to seeing this one in 2008.

Pixar Preview In Latest Time Magazine

June 11, 2007

pixar logoI’ve been a fan of Pixar for a long time. They have made some major headway in the cg animation department over the years and usually churn out good films. Their most recent work, Ratatouille, will be in theaters June 29 and I can’t wait. It’s about a rat that wants to be a chef. Well, that is a simplistic summary. Looks to be good. It seems they already have three other films in the works, too.

I found out, via Cinematical, that in the latest Time Magazine there is talk about these new projects, but if you don’t want to wait, Dark Horizon’s has the scoop over on their site.

The first is Wall*e.  It’s set in 2700 and it’s described as “a space-set remake of a 1931 Charlie Chaplin film about a blind girl wooed by a tramp she mistakenly believes is a rich man.”  Also, the main characters aren’t humans they are robots.

Next is Up, a “‘coming-of-old-age’ story which follows an elderly man befriends a clueless young Wilderness Ranger and gets into lots of globe-hopping, ass-kicking adventures with villains and beasts whilst still eating dinner in the early afternoon.”  Sounds interesting.

And finally there is Toy Story 3, which is still being written so there’s not really synopsis.
