Toy Story 3 passed the $300 million a the domestic box-office and $400 million Worldwide on Monday. The film is now Pixar's second highest grossing film, behind Finding Nemo.

We've eventually added to our video archives Tom Hanks's speech at the AFI 38th Life Achievement Awards honoring Mike Nichols. The ceremony took place on June 10, 2010 and aired on TV Land on June 27.

Jon Seda talked to Collider.com about The Pacific, his part in Larry Crowne (in which he plays a cop) and Tom Hanks. Here's what he said of him :

"Tom Hanks, he's just so respected [in Hollywood] and when you meet him and you get to know him, you realize that you have even more respect for him because here he is in this level of Hollywood but he keeps everything real. He's down to earth and he's a great guy to work with. It was just an honor."
