Want To See WALL*E Before The Entire Human Race? At The Alamo Drafthouse South - on FATHER'S DAY?
Hey folks, Harry here... On June 15th - Father's Day - The Future is coming to the Alamo Drafthouse South, here in Austin, Tx. WALL*E - this will be the very first Public Screening of WALL*E - thus far, it has only been shown to "Long Lead Press" - and on June 15th - an audience of approximately 220 will be... the Luckiest Audience On Earth - because we'll be seeing the new Pixar film first! Now this is meant to be a GEEK SCREENING. So... I am having you folks email me on why you're the biggest science fiction geek on the planet Earth. Specifically - I need to hear what it is about the future, robots, space and that stuff that we all know is out there... somewhere, well what that stuff does for you. I'm not specifically looking for "Families" but I'm not not looking for them as well. Be sure to include your name & the name(s) of your guest(s). Email your submission to: HK at AintItCool.Com and you must have this exact subject line: Everything Is So WALL*E!!! If that isn't the subject line - the submission will never get to the mail folder it needs to get to, to be considered and your email will be deleted. Meanwhile - here's a 3 minute Sneak Peek from WALL*E that we saw at BUTT-NUMB-A-THON last year - well, it's finally shown up online, here...

The first time I ever masturbated was to that scene! I was 11. If that ain't sci-fi geek, nothin' is -- gimme my tickets!

have hinted that Pixar has done it again. That they have captured genuine emotion within the context of their animated films, which they excell (Toy Story's, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, etc.). Monsters Inc has one of the most perfectly realized endings and never fails to produce a tear or two. I think thats what sets them apart from the other animation studios.

"On an Earth long abandoned by humans, one little dustbuster keeps picking up the trash. The compact critter is code-named WALL.E (Waste Allocation Load Lifter — Earth), and he's the funniest, most soulful entity you're likely to meet in movies this summer. His encounter with another robot, the sleekly feminine EVE, forms the valentine heart of this science-fiction love story. Stanton, whose Finding Nemo remains Pixar's top-grossing movie, playfully challenges audiences with WALL.E's first 45 minutes, which has virtually no dialogue, yet communicates its humor and feelings as directly as Charlie Chaplin's best silent films. The Earth scenes are non-talking, but in no way silent — WALL.E's mechanical voice and most of the movie's other aural components are the work of Ben Burtt; he's been recognized as the medium's presiding wizard of sounds since the original Star Wars, for which he created the voices or noises of the creatures, droids and swishing light sabers. Like the early shorts of Pixar creative boss John Lasseter (Luxo Jr., Red's Dream), this one is the story of a machine with palpable human emotions. In that sense, WALL.E is the company's most sophisticated toy but its purest, most personal movie yet: ultimate Pixar."

... to be able to go to these sorts of premiere screenings. Almost, anyway... not quite. (Sorry, but we are talking about... Texas...)
June 9, 2008, 1:59 p.m. CST
whenever I fill the screening and say - "Its over"
June 9, 2008, 2:01 p.m. CST
Actually - we're talking Austin - which is certainly better than everywhere else.
June 9, 2008, 2:04 p.m. CST
Application sent. I'll make the journey if I'm invited. I'll haul the family along. What time is the screening?
June 9, 2008, 2:10 p.m. CST
I sent in my application and was wondering how we will know if we made it? By the way what time does the screening start?

Just look at the map of our counties from the last presidential election. We were the only blue county in the state. Anyways, Wall*e looks amazing. Pixar movies turn me into a kid all over again.

According to The Pixar Blog (and also being reported on Dark Horizons), Andrew Stanton has confirmed that he is writing the script for John Carter of Mars for Pixar. Personally I would love to see Pixar start taking on projects like this. Hope this is true!
June 9, 2008, 4:02 p.m. CST
I mean, really. It's hard enough hearing about all the cool stuff that goes down there. How's about sharing said coolness with the rest of the planet?
June 9, 2008, 4:12 p.m. CST
Now that is news... The team are 3 shots away from finishing the opening scene of A Matter of Loaf and Death!
June 9, 2008, 5:20 p.m. CST
scroll down. We posted that story a couple days ago... and it's been known for a little while before that Pixar was in control of the property. Could be fantastic! Stanton is the bomb.

They totally have. There are Drafthouse franchises in Northwest Austin, Houston, Katy, and San Antonio. Also one down in the Valley. If you're interested in starting up a franchise, go to: http://drafthouse.com/main/franchise/

Though I'm probably not as geeky as some others. I hope to get picked anyway!

because it may suck. Geek hope springs eternal...this site is proof of that on a daily basis.

28/06/2007 is good for me, 3 weeks before the UK release which makes it even more of an advance preview for Brits than the Alamo is for Statesians. Plus Pixar are sending along an animator to Edinburgh to talk through some of the key scenes which is sweet. Thanks anyway guys...

I've seen the movie and I'm a human being. Hence...you suck!

have the goddamn screening in los angeles you fucks...ive been waiting for this movie all year
June 10, 2008, 3:50 a.m. CST
needs to rewatch both of those films and realise that THEY'RE NOT SET IN THE FUTURE IN A WORLD POPULATED BY ROBOTS.... if you cant see past the fact they've both got 2 eyes (like humans do, apparently) then you're gonna miss out on one of the best movies of the year just because you've got something against binocular vision. pillock.

I came on wall-e's face and short circuited his neck servos. Now he's all rusted and cum drenched, and has to look in one direction: I have him hanging over my cat's litter box, where he is forced to watch my cat release her kitty food in gooey warm fudge.

Its just that the cute and loveable central character looks identical. But you know Wall E would never fuck Ally Sheedy. He doesn't race mix.
June 10, 2008, 11:54 a.m. CST
but "comments" like greentealite's really pushes through the bottom of the barrel. It's stuff like that which will eventually drive me away from this site, if it stays that bad.<br></br><br></br>I mean, this is a TB for a G rated movie, for cryin' out loud!
June 10, 2008, 12:35 p.m. CST
sounds interesting. i just heard a clip on itunes this morning. it's called "down to earth" and it has very distant echoes of "you got a friend in me" from the first toy story. and i couldn't care less about john carter or up or newt or whatever the fuck they are "talking about doing", i just wanna see this, toy story 3 and cars 2 next from them. that's it. i would like to see another incredibles and nemo as well , but one problem, the story has been told again and again in far superior films. nuff said.
June 10, 2008, 2:22 p.m. CST
...the last 3 weeks of DVD releases, eh? I'm curious on your take on a few titles, and curious at what I missed by looking through the new release sections of retailers...

My old HS is having a fund-raiser @ Pixar tomorrow, which includes a screening for all the guests. I'm jealous I don't live near the bay area any longer. So you're not really accurate in saying Alamo peeps will see it first, but I'm still jealous of ya.

Can't wait the hear the reviews. This TB has been about as exciting as watching paint dry... Not a single comment today? WUWT?! I thought a lot more people were anticipating this one. Are they going to blame AICN when this one flops as well?
June 11, 2008, 8:46 p.m. CST
It is a Pixar movie. They haven't made a bad one yet, and even if this one turns out to be not so great, it will make tons of money.
