Watch the first 65 minutes of Toy Story 3!

03.29.2010

Were you not one of the lucky ones who got to see TOY STORY 3 at ShoWest? Also unable to make it to WonderCon to see what Pixar will be showing off from the film there? Good news! You can still see a good chunk of the movie before it hits theaters this June. Well.....sorta.

Disney/Pixar will be screening 65-minutes of TOY STORY 3 throughout April at a number of colleges across the US. The only catch is that you have to be a current student as a valid college ID is required to attend. On one hand it sucks for all those people who aren't in college (or are in college but not at one of the included universities) but on the other hand, it's actually quite cool. I remember recently they were screening an upcoming animated film in New York City and to attend you HAD to bring at least one child under eight with you. Disney/Pixar are so confident in their film, they're marketing to the young adult audience. Kids will come see TOY STORY 3 but let's get the college kids in to see this kids movie too!

OK, so what do you have to do to attend? Click here to head to the Disney/Pixar Facebook page and find your college. While you will need to have a valid college ID to sign up, it appears that when you sign up you'll be allowed to bring a guest (who would presumably NOT need a college ID). Check it out and after the event, make sure to check back in and let us know how it went!

I like the idea...

Let's face it... They know their core audience from the first movie are all in college now, so they want to give back to us... I say let them. It may not be the whole thing, but if I can, I'm going, and I'll be taking my lil bro...for better or worse.

Okay, so as fan of Toy Story, and an even bigger fan of Movies in general, why WOULDN'T I want to see 65 minutes of a movie I'm looking forward to?? Yeah, it's not the whole thing, but who the hell cares? You'll see it in Imax 3D anyways? The film makers throw us a bone, give us a chance to see 64 minutes worth of a movie we ALL wanna see and everyone bitches about it? Gimme a break. seeing 65 minutes of ANY movie for FREE is something I consider a GIFT. But that's just me...

The problem is I do want to see it. But when it ends at 65 minutes I'm gonna be upset I have to wait and see the rest when it comes out and on top of that I'll have to either sit through the first 65 min again or come into the movie late. I'm sure I'll be happy to watch this movie multiple times but I want to see the whole movie first before I watch it all the way through again.

I'm not digging this idea. Like everyone else has reiterated...who would want to watch two thirds of the movie? It would ruin the surprise and excitment of seeing it in its entirety.

They are doing this for my university but I wouldnt want to watch three quarters of it and just walk away. I'll wait to see the whole thing. Especially in IMAX

Waste of time

I'll wait until the preview screenings to see the whole thing. But I gave it a thumbs-up, simply because it's Toy Story 3.

Dumb!

Why would I want to watch MOST of a movie? What a waste of time!
