With Cars 2 a little over two months away, I thought I’d switch things up a bit. Here are the headlines Mater towed in today.
Three Vintage Cars 2 Posters Premiere: With each new Pixar film, I always seem to look forward to the eye-popping "vintage" posters released. CinemaBlend.com has obtained high-resolution images of three brand new one-sheets. The Cars 2 posters were seen hanging in the atrium when we visited the studio, although I’ve never seen them in detail like this!
New Ratatouille Box-Art: Can you see the trend here? Disney/Pixar has been re-packaging its library of films to follow a certain aesthetic. See the new cover of Ratatouille on Blu-ray (re-released July 5, 2011) for example; just like Toy Story, Toy Story 2 and the new Cars Blu-ray, one side features the film’s protagonists while the other features the logo on a colored background. Expect this trend to continue with re-packagings of Up and TS3. How do you feel about the uniform box-art?
