Moviegoers waiting to see the newest release from Disney/Pixar, UP, at the Kerasotes Show Case Theaters in Chicago, IL got a big surprise when some of Pixar’s classic characters came out to celebrate and watch the movie too. Sulley (Monsters, Inc.), Mr. Incredible (The Incredibles) and Buzz Lightyear and Woody (Toy Story) worked and schmoozed the already excited crowd.
Caught this on the television as I was fast forwarding through the commercials. For your entertainment:

The American Free Press is reporting that Dug and the rest of his canine pack (Alpha, Beta, Gamma and perhaps a couple of others) have secured the top canine prize at Cannes, the Palm Dog, which celebrates dogs on film.
