The Pacific : new trailer

September 14, 2009

A new trailer for the miniseries The Pacific has been revealed by HBO. The miniseries will air in March 2010 and is based on two books, "With the Old Breed" written by Eugene Sledge and "Helmet for My Pillow" by Robert Leckie, who are both former Marines. You can download the trailer (6,5 Mb) by clicking on the image below.

Don't forget that Angels & Demons DVD and Blu-Ray is out today in the United Kingdom, and tomorrow will be released The Lost Symbol, the thrid Robert Langdon adventure book written by Dan Brown. Who knows, it could well be made into a movie in a few years.

Jeff Garlin (Wall-E's human captain), Timothy Dalton (M. Pricklepants), Bonnie Hunt and Whoopi Goldberg are joining the voice cast of Toy Story 3 !
A scene from the animated movie has been screened at the closing of the D23 Expo, a Disney Exposition and Conference. If you want, you can read the description of the scene below :

The scene opens with Andy's room. It's recognizable as the room from his youth, but the walls are now covered with different posters and there's fewer toys on the floor. Andy's mom comes in and tells Andy that, since he's heading off to college on Friday (in three days) he needs to decide what he's keeping, what he's donating to Sunnyside day care, and what he's just throwing out. Andy's sister, Molly comes in, demanding that he hurry along in the process since she'll be taking his room when he's gone. She walks over to a chest and opens it, revealing all the recognizable toys, and making fun of Andy for still having them. The mom scolds Molly as well, saying that she, too, needs to get some of her junk cleaned out.

Molly heads off to her room (reading "Tween" magazine) and starts throwing toys into a "Sunnyside" box. She throws in an Eight-Ball and then Barbie as the other toys watch with horror from Andy's chest. Hamm has a great joke here, saying "I call the convertible!" while all the other toys are aghast.

Andy opens a trash bag and starts putting toys in it. He puts in Jessie, Rex, Hamm, Bullseye, Mr. Potato Head and a bunch of three-eyed Martians. Soon every toy is inside the bag except for Buzz and Woody who Andy holds in either hand, trying to make his decision. He finally throws Buzz in the bag and pulls Woody aside for his "college" box.

Andy pulls the bag out into the hallway, pulling the cord above his head for the attic but just then Molly asks for help with something and he has to leave the bag in hall. The mom ends up coming by and finding it, mistaking it for trash and carrying it out to the curb.

Woody watches in horror from Andy's window as the trash truck approaches, now just a few houses down. He jumps to the floor and calls for the dog, Buster, who makes an amazing cameo, now old, slow, overweight and very, very grey.

Realizing that Buster can't help him, Woody runs to the window and grabs a pair of scissors, leaping to a drainpipe and crawling down into the yard. Inside the garbage bag, the toys are panicked, trying to tear open a hole so they can escape. Buzz realizes that they might be able to use Rex's tail to break a hole and they all push him against the plastic.

Woody makes it to the bags on the curb just as the trash truck is showing up. Avoiding the gaze of the trash men, he cuts a bag at a time, but finds only trash bags. Before he can reach the bag of toys, the trash man grabs everything on the curb and throws it into the back of his truck. Woody watches in horror as the trash compactor comes on, crushing all the garbage bags.

Woody shouts, "Buzz! Jessie!" in terror and the scene cuts, to be continued.
