  • 'Toy Story 3' to screen 3/16 at ShoWest

    Disney has set two big screenings for ShoWest 2010: "Toy Story 3" and "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time."

    The Pixar sequel will be screened March 16; the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced "Persia" will be shown March 18, the final day of the four-day exhibition confab in Las Vegas.

    "The opportunity to showcase the story of 'Prince of Persia' and the beloved characters of 'Toy Story 3' in front of the important professionals of the motion picture industry and owners of theaters demonstrates the significance of this audience to forthcoming blockbusters," ShoWest managing director Robert Sunshine said.

    This morning I show the in-progress Toy Story 3 to around 3000 of my closest friends, who happen to be here in Vegas. Gulp.

      Entertainment Weekly: Pixar does it again

      (sigh of relief...)
      Before showing the movie, ShoWest presented John Lasseter with a special ShoWest Big Ten Award, commemorating Disney and Pixar Animation's ten movies released to date, all enormous hits that have grossed $5.5 billion worldwide. After giving a speech, Lasseter presented the premiere of Teddy Newton's short Day & Night which will be running in front of Toy Story 3. The short was shown in 3D and it's another fairly innovative dialogue-free short involving two 2-dimensional "Schmoo"-like creatures who display 3D animation scenes on their bodies. The general idea is that one is always showing daytime scenes, while the other is always showing night, and the short cleverly juxtaposed the two things as the characters interacted.

        One more positive reaction to the TS3 screening today:
        *

        Today at ShoWest in Las Vegas Disney and Pixar held the first ever screening of Toy Story 3. The movie wasn't 100% finished and we saw it in 2D but it's a great, great addition to the Toy Story films. We're not allowed to review it but I wanted to share my initial thoughts with you guys.

        I can't talk about the plot of the movie but it is just as funny, sweet, adventurous, sad and goofy as the previous Toy Story movies. Lee Unkrich put his co-directing gigs behind him and gave us a fantastic end to the series. All of the toys were present (except for a few, which is explained in the film) and the movie looked great.

        Like I said I can't talk about the plot but the story about how we outgrow the things we grew up with seemed to hit a lot of people in the theater. The last act had some around me crying, probably thinking back to when they had favorite toys of their own growing up.

          at ShoWest 2010

          Dolby Works with Disney and Pixar to Create a
          New Audio Experience for Digital Cinema Audiences
          and Exhibitors

          LAS VEGAS, Mar 16, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- At ShoWest 2010, Dolby Laboratories, Inc, announced it is working with Walt Disney Pictures(R) and Pixar(R) Animation Studios to deliver a new audio format, Dolby(R) Surround 7.1. Disney(R) and Pixar have stated that Dolby Surround 7.1 will be launched in select theatres with the release of Toy Story(R) 3 in 3D this June.

          "For 40 years Dolby has not only provided content creators with the tools to create a more realistic audio experience, but has also enabled the exhibitor to deliver audiences the ability to experience the content as the creator intended," said Page Haun, Senior Director, Marketing, Cinema Market Segment, Dolby Laboratories. "The release of Toy Story 3 in a discrete 7.1 mix will raise the bar for movie theatre owners and their patrons."

          Dolby Surround 7.1 brings a more exciting sensory experience to audiences for 2D and gives content creators control over audio placement in a theatre when mixing 3D movies. The ability to compose audio with visual elements of 3D allows content creators to immerse the audience deeper into the movie with dramatic realism.
