With this new fourth domestic trailer pumping up audiences for The Lone Ranger, Disney has finally hit a real sweet spot in selling this new endeavor from three of the key figures who made Pirates of the Caribbean a big hit a decade ago.
See Buzz. See Buzz glow. Glow, Buzz, glow!
The emotional crotchpunch that was Toy Story 3 may have had a cathartic ring to it, but Toy Story lives on.
Another sequel will probably roll around eventually, but for now, the characters of Pixar's first feature film endure in the Toy Story Toon shorts. So far, these shorts have been attached to Disney releases, but this year, Toy Story of Terror brings Woody, Buzz, and the rest of Andy's old toys to television.
Welcome to Level 7.

Hungry? Starving for even the smallest morsel of real, corroborated info-sustenance regarding Star Wars: Episode VII?
Well then we've got the tiniest table scrap to throw your way today, as Lucasfilm has announced – oh-so officially – that production on the first installment of the next Star Wars trilogy will take place in the United Kingdom, where each and every live-action Star Wars movie has done at least a little bit of shooting.
Most everybody loves their mama, but rarely does a major motion picture remind its audience to appreciate all the work of doting mothers the world over.
Yet here we are, with a new promo for Monsters University taking a very strong pro-mom stance.
It's been four years since Disney bought Marvel Comics outright, and plenty of fans have given up on seeing a Marvel property get the big screen animated treatment.
These folks gave up too soon, as Disney Animation has announced its first Marvel animated project, scheduled to hit theaters in 2D and 3D on November 7, 2014. Not only that, but thanks to Walt Disney Animation Studios, we also get our first look at images and footage from this Marvel movie.
Short version: Iron Man 3 made a lot of money this weekend. A lot. In fact, the only movie that's ever made more in its domestic opening was The Avengers.
You won't hear a single word of English in the whole thing, but a new international trailer for The Lone Ranger is by far the most effective look at the mega-Western yet.
This Friday, May 3rd, Marvel Studios cuts the ribbon on Phase 2 with the nationwide release of Iron Man 3.
Hard to believe that it was just five years ago (almost to the day) that Tony Stark first declared "I am Iron Man." That first film in this series marked the kick-off to Marvel's shared universe of cross-pollinating franchises, and last year's The Avengers represented the culmination of Phase 1.
When last we saw Stark, he was enjoying shawarma with his fellow superheroes after saving New York from alien invasion and nuclear devastation. In Iron Man 3, though, Tony's been unmoored by his Avengers experience, obsessed with improving his armor to defend from the next inevitable threat. When that threat arrives in the form of Iron Man's comic book archnemesis the Mandarin, it's worse than Tony could have imagined, and our hero must battle this unprecedented foe while also defending against a dangerous and powerful new technology.
Robert Downey Jr. reprises his starring role as genius billionaire playboy philanthropist Tony Stark, joined once again by Gwyneth Paltrow as the love of his life Pepper Potts and Don Cheadle in his second turn as Tony's best friend/fellow superhero James "Rhodey" Rhodes. These franchise fixtures star alongside new additions Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin and Guy Pearce as Aldrich Killian, a fellow tech-titan with eyes on Pepper and plans for a new innovation called Extremis.
IAR Managing Editor Jami Philbrick was present at the Iron Man 3 press day in Los Angeles. Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Ben Kingsley, and Guy Pearce were on hand to discuss the sequel's relationship to The Avengers, some big character arcs, bringing Mandarin to the screen, improvisation, suiting up as big-time superheroes, green screen, new director Shane Black, and Tony Stark's cinematic future.
The latest trailer for Monsters University reaches deep down inside, but instead of letting the scary out, it goes for the funny.
