'Toy Story 3' Marathon Takes Viewers to Infinity and Beyond!

Toy Story 3 highest grossing Pixar film

Fans of Pixar's Toy Story franchise will be excited to know that, not only is it a few mere hours from the release of Toy Story 3, you may still have time to run to your local theater for a Toy Story marathon.

We'll be posting our review very soon, but the film is garnering a lot of positive buzz so far - due to the rich additions to the cast as well as the trademark Pixar sense of humor.

As for the trilogy event, Toy Story 3 director, Lee Unkrich, tweeted a poster teasing the Toy Story marathon. In celebration of the Toy Story 3's release, select theaters in 20 different cities will be offering a triple feature - showing Toy Story and Toy Story 2 prior to the midnight release of Toy Story 3. While those of us on the east coast have missed the deadline - there's still time for you Mountain and Pacific time-zoners to get your local theater.

The marathon is similar to the Twilight saga event we reported earlier this month. Check out the flier below to see if a theater in your city is participating in the Toy Story Marathon.

If you're still on the fence about Toy Story 3, make sure to check out the stills and video clips Disney released a couple days back for a taste of what to expect.

Personally, I was extremely skeptical of Toy Story 3 - not because I don't trust Pixar. I'd just rather see them creating new IPs. Wall-E and Up were both technically impressive as well as extremely well crafted - not to mention emotional. So, it was hard for me to understand the point of revisiting a franchise that hadn't seen a new installment for eleven years. While I was sure that I'd enjoy Toy Story 3, my feeling was that I would have enjoyed (insert new idea) more.

However, the more recent Toy Story 3 trailers (that showcase the new film's plot), not to mention Ken's dating tips, have made me really hungry to reunite with my old friends... I mean toys.

That said, a part of me is still holding out hope for that Inception/Toy Story 3 mash-up.

When will you be seeing Toy Story 3? Think you might rush out to one of the Toy Story Marathons?
