Turn the Clocks Back with These Retro Posters Inspired by Disney/Pixar’s UP

2010 -- ESPNU College Town

So as all my clocks automatically adjusted themselves this past weekend as I soundly slept, I got to thinking (or might have, had I been awake) and reminiscing about the good old days. Back when UP was the newest movie from Pixar and 3D movies cost just $20 and I had to take a taxi cab to see them in the snow uphill — both ways.

If you share my thoughts and the haunting melody of the timeless classic ‘Party in the USA’ by Miley Cyrus is seeping into your head as we speak, then this is the post for you.

Hairy Christmas! G-FORCE to be Deployed on Blu-ray and DVD on December 15

G-FORCE on Blu-ray and DVD © WDSHE. All Rights Reserved.Burbank, Calif., September 25, 2009 – Charging home on December 15th comes Walt Disney Pictures’ action-packed comedy-adventure G-Force.  Packaged as an exciting Disney “Combo Pack” (a Blu-ray™ + DVD + DisneyFile Digital Copy of the movie in a single package), families can finally look forward to enjoying this thrilling story about a covert group of feisty furball Guinea Pigs anytime, anywhere and on a compatible format of their choice — Blu-ray player, car, PC and/or portable device.

A top-secret, highly trained trio of guinea pig super spies is assigned to stop a dastardly plot to take over the world in G-Force, a gorgeously rendered CGI adventure from famed producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Squad leader Darwin (voiced by Sam Rockwell) will do what it takes to guarantee the success of his team, which also includes Blaster (Tracy Morgan), an outrageous weapons expert with tons of attitude, and Juarez (Penelope Cruz), gorgeous martial arts pro. With the help of Speckles (Nicolas Cage), a star-nosed mole, and myriad other members of the animal kingdom, the G-Force tries to derail evil appliance mogul Leonard Saber’s power grab. It helps when your fly-on-the wall reconnaissance expert is, well, a fly on the wall!

Destined to be the family comedy hit of the season, and released just in time for the holidays, G-Force includes a fascinating line-up of behind-the-scenes features, hilarious deleted movie scenes and a collection of music videos featuring songs from the film.  And exclusively for Blu-ray owners, there are three CGI effect bonus features that will satisfy their quest to join the rodent spy world.
