Pixar’s next movie “Toy Story 3” is going to be out next summer and the trailers are up.
Andy is grown up ready for college and the toys are panicking they will be abandoned. Instead it looks like they’re donated to a nursery where the children make a complete mess of them and now they’re trying to escape.
It’s looking good so far. Wasn’t very impressed with their last movie Up because it focused too much on the love story and got a bit repetitive watching Carl look back at his deceased wife all the time. I think I’m going to stop collecting all Pixar movies on DVD and miss out the less impressive ones.
Today was the day the Japanese finally get to see the second title in the Evangelion Rebuild series of movies subtitled, “You Can (Not) Advance” and Famitsu dropped by Shinjuku, Kabuki District to cover the première. There were over 1000 people queuing outside by half 6 in the morning where some of the SEELE “Sound Only” monoliths appeared.
Needless to say, there was plenty of Evangelion franchise on sale on the day too, including this limited edition “Eva Combo Set” composed of a bag of popcorn, a drink and a figure of Asuka for 1500 Yen (US$16).
A pamphlet was also sold with the message, “WARNING! Do not open this before watching the movie!” In other words, spoilers ahead as we take a peek inside.
FFVII:AC Complete is finally available complete with English dub but no subs.
Seems they’ve made quite a number of changes – Re-recording the audio tracks, remixing the music and making slight changes to directions and scenes. They’ve toned down the coolness of the movie and have expanded on covering subjects such as Geostigma to give the disease a more emotional impact whereas before, you would have to have read On the Way to a Smile to know what it was. It’s also a lot gorey and violent now.
Also great watching the movie in HD resolution. The rays of lighting, dust, textures are much more pronounced. So here I’m going to run through the changes they made and what extra 30 minutes of new scenes they threw in. Note that it is by no means an exhaustive listing.
Needless to say, there are big spoilers that links to fairly much the whole FFVII series whether as a game, movie or animation so don’t read on if you hate them.
Between March 9th ~ 22nd, 800 lucky “Silver Members” of the SE Club who pre-order (or have already) either the Cloud Black PS3 or demo trial set of the upcoming FFVII Advent Children Complete, will be able to view the extended movie a few days before release. The screening will take place on the 8th floor of the Sony Building in Ginza on April 11th and the 12th.
Will be fun if someone ends up leaking some cam footage but doubt that will happen since most of them will be loyal fans.
Doesn’t Cloud’s hand look out of proportion in this picture…?
Just look at the reflection of Edge City on that Materia… Can’t see that much detail on DVD. Not that the scene exists in the current version anyway!
Famitsu reveals there will be “three editions” of FFVII Advent Children Complete which is a Blu-ray HD version of the RPG movie sequel with 30 minutes of new original footage. They will be due sometime this March in Japan and, only the first press editions of the PS3 bundle and the movie will come with a bonus disk containing a playable demo of FFXIII as well as footage of the other two titles Versus and Agito. The regular edition of the movie won’t have this disk.
