Diane Lane and John Malkovich in 'Secretariat'

We have just received these new stills from Walt Disney Studios’ Secretariat starring Diane Lane and John Malkovich.

Based on the remarkable true story, Secretariat chronicles the spectacular journey of the 1973 Triple Crown winner.  Housewife and mother Penny Chenery (Diane Lane) agrees to take over her ailing father’s Virginia-based Meadow Stables, despite her lack of horse-racing knowledge.  Against all odds, Chenery—with the help of veteran trainer Lucien Laurin (John Malkovich)—manages to navigate the male-dominated business, ultimately fostering the first Triple Crown winner in 25 years and what may be the greatest racehorse of all time.

Photocall: ‘Iron Man 2′ Press Junket at Los Angeles Four Seasons Hotel

Pirates mingle with guests in costume at POTC4 Trailer Event at Disneyland Resort A press junket and photocall were offered yesterday in support of Disney/Marvel’s upcoming summer blockbuster Iron Man 2. In attendance for the photocall were Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Ironman), Gwyneth Paltrow (Pepper Potts), Don Cheadle (Lt. Col. James ‘Rhodey’ Rhodes), Scarlett Johansson (Natalie Rushman/Natasha Romanoff), Mickey Rourke (Ivan Vanko) and Jon Favreau (Happy Hogan/Director).

We’d like to thank Paramount Pictures for providing us with these images which were taken by Jason Merritt/Getty Images and Michael Buckner/WireImage. Furthermore, we feel obligated to note that the disproportionate number of Scarlett Johansson photos was in fact an editorial decision.

Vintage Television Commercial for Toy Story Character Surfaces

If you can forgive the wear and tear on the VHS, the poor tracking and muffled audio, this television ad just may take some you back to the early 80s at a time when the Smurfs, Cabbage Patch Kids, Rainbow Brite, Strawberry Shortcake, Teddy Ruxpin, Gloworms, Wuzzles and — of course — Lots-o-Huggin’ Bear dominated the world of kids’ pop culture and the KB Toy Store at the local shopping mall couldn’t keep them stocked on the shelves, try as they might.

Call it Flashback Friday, but I couldn’t resist sharing this YouTube gem with you all. Maybe it’s time to go searching on eBay.

Disney Trading Announces Live Vinylmation Chat with Disney’s Steven Miller

Steven MillerIt’s hard to believe that Disney pin trading started just over a decade ago and has since gone on to become a worldwide phenomenon with casual and serious collectors amassing personal collections to keep and trade.

In 2008, lightning struck twice when Disney Trading and the Disney Design Group introduced Vinylmation – 3″ and 9″ vinyl figures in the form of a Mickey Mouse canvas and  decorated in all sorts of fanciful ways. After the release of a number of series, the Vinylmation fever carried on to plushes and clothing and merchandise and even shops dedicated to the new collectible. With even  more innovative lines on the way including the new Vinylmation Jr. and other inspired must-haves such as keychains and notebooks, Vinylmation is bigger than ever and shows no sign of stopping!
