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.

Report: Jim Carrey, Bob Zemeckis, et al Bring ‘A Christmas Carol’ Train Tour to New York

Pamela Adlon and Mae Whitman Photo: Alex J. Berliner © Berliner Photography/BEImages Dozens of commuters got a big thrill early Friday morning when they caught a glimpse of actor Jim Carrey being driven through Grand Central Terminal on a pargo courtesy of the FDNY Fire Chief (well, let’s face it, it’s New York, so make it about 3 commuters who even noticed). Singing the theme to The Flintstones as he ‘pedaled’ the slow moving vehicle along, Carrey waved to and graciously greeted his fans as the vehicle’s light flashed and siren blared.

Rewind to just a few minutes before when Walt Disney Studios held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the final stop on the cross-country train tour to promote Disney’s A Christmas Carol. At a press conference held in front of the facade of the large, inflatable theater showing previews of the film, media, execs and guests were treated to a pre-show involving Christmas carolers and vaudevillian-type performers (who were also out entertaining passerbys all weekend long as well).

Kicking off the presentation was new Chairman of the Walt Disney Studios, Rich Ross, who first introduced and brought to stage the Chief Marketing Officers of Amtrak and Hewlett-Packard, partners in the train tour promotion. Ross then introduced director Robert Zemeckis and Jim Carrey who took the stage together, although it was Carrey who ultimately commanded the stage. Also in presence were ImageMover Digital partners and producers of the film, Steve Starkey and Jack Rapke.
