OK, we’ve been promised that this time, this time, is the final venture out into the world of Toy Story 3 marketing before the film hits us this summer. Admittedly, team Pixar have dragged out this campaign for as long as they possibly could, drip feeding us pictures of new characters, posters and little hints as to possible story for months now. The most infuriating thing is that… we bloody love it.
I think it’s fair to say that if Toy Story 3 isn’t absolutely brilliant the world will rise up into anarchy. No pressure guys, but seriously, the future of Hollywood depends on you. Helpfully, initial responses seem to be overwhelmingly positive (but we’re still trying not to get too excited after being burned by Alice).
2009 certainly brought us a few cinematic corkers, from sci-fi epic Avatar to comic-book crunching goodness from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight and Watchmen. But it wasn’t all wham, bam and explosions – will 2010 be a year of smarter movies? Judging this list… maybe.
