Empire Debuts Another New Photo from Pixar's Up
Looking forward to 2009, there are a few films that are at the very top of my most highly anticipated list that I just know are going to be fantastic. Pixar's Up is one of them. I have a very good feeling that there's a lot that we still don't know about this movie, but that's what I love about Pixar, they keep all of the actual story under wraps so that it's not ruined by the time we see it in theaters. Empire has debuted another new photo today but it doesn't show anything new that we haven't seen before, just Carl and Russell. Although this is one of the first photos of the two of them once they've landed in Venezuela. Check it out below.
From Disney-Pixar comes Up, a comedy adventure about 78-year-old balloon salesman Carl Fredricksen, who finally fulfills his lifelong dream of a great adventure when he ties thousands of balloons to his house and flies away to the wilds of South America. But he discovers all too late that his biggest nightmare has stowed away on the trip: an overly optimistic 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer named Russell.
Pixar's Up is directed Pete Docter, who also directed Monsters, Inc previously in addition to writing the stories for Toy Story and Toy Story 2. The film is co-directed and written by Bob Peterson, who wrote Finding Nemo previously. Disney is planning to debut up in theaters everywhere on May 29th, 2009 next summer. For more information on Up, head over to our first look at the characters and the story.

i am sure the film will be awesome, but the story still looks a bit bland and formulaic. The grumpy old man and young optimistic kid thing is a wee bit overplayed. Dont get me wrong, this is going to be great, its just they could have picked a more original story.

I simply love the background, how they've stylized the rock formations...

What bothers me is how they don't do any texturing on the people themselves. Their skin looks like plastic action figures while they make the background textures look life-like. It's like in Wall-E...everything was awesome until they introduced the terrible looking humans which ruined the movie for many reasons.

I disagree with almost everything you've said, Jimmy. Everything except that the people look like plastic action figures, which I can't refute since it's more or less a point of fact. I dig the look, though.
