Toy Story 3 teaser poster

The first teaser poster for Toy Story 3, pictured, hit the web late last night at LatinoReview.com, which got the exclusive first look.

The design is simply genius. Will get people talking for sure.

How is the design "simply genius"? It's a 3. Yeah, everyone will know it's Toy Story because of the type treatment and the tag, but come on. Pixar could have done better with this one.

I love it! The tag line is great and i love how they don't even say toy story. Also the 3 really stands out in front of the black.

Did you see the Pixar printables from Family.com at the D23 Expo?

Is it a reference to Lilo and Stitch? Ohana means family and family means no one gets left behind?

Sorry, don't get it or think it's genius.

That's not a "genius" poster. It's really boring and ordinary. Pixar ever does good posters (though Ratatouille and Up were both pretty good), and this is no different. A big 3? Big deal.

So Mike? Any word yet on when you'll be seeing the TS/TS2 3D double-bill?

Max said...

It is absolutely genius. It's advertising the movie, but it's not shoving the franchise name in your face. Also, it's simple enough to generate word without showing anything. I love it.

I agree with the "simply genius" being too much. I love the design, but it's a bit
As a huge pixar fan i believe they cannot really show much right now, but it follows the same idea of Shrek 2, using the font to identify the Toy Story brand.

Even so, i belive this is gonna be the movie of next year... this franchise is a classic and I trully believe Pixar won't let us down!

Eh *shrugs* I don't see it as simply brilliant, but it's not stupid either. Didn't really make me anymore excited for the film then I already was though.

I said this elsewhere, but:
Full-res, that 3 is drool-worthy.

You must be seeing TS1 and TS2 soon! Do you know when yet?

Jeffrey said...

I agree with the anonymous poster. Genious? Really?

Brendan said...

not really genius. I'm pretty sure my 3 year old won't want to go see TS3 because of this poster. He did want to see Kung Fu Panda, Bolt, Up and Aliens vs Robots based on those posters.

It seems like they were going for an audience that remembers when the posters for TS and TS2 came out, not kids who have only seen them on video.

The movie looks awesome, but I expect to see another poster when we get closer to opening day.

A rather epic tag line, I think. If they do some midnight showings for TS3, I'm going to be the first one in line.

Mike said...

Wow, I'm surprised at all the negativity about the 'TS3' poster.

I Like Pixar!: I found out yesterday that the double feature advance screening in Toronto next week will be at 9 in the morning, on a Saturday, quite a drive away from where I live.

Honestly, I can't enjoy a movie that early (NOT a morning person, especially on the weekend), so I guess I'm stuck waiting till Oct. Not too much longer.

Leirin said...

Me too, Mike! I was expecting more positive reactions. I like it a lot. It doesn't reveal too much, it doesn't even have the words Toy Story on it, but it gets the point across (to those familiar) that it's the anticipated third installment to the beloved franchise. The tagline is perfectly suited for the theme of the film, at least for what we know about it so far. It doesn't have flash graphics or imagery, but it grabs your attention in an instant. I like them being kind of secretive about it, it builds up excitement.

IMO genius design.

Mike said...

Exactly, exactly, exactly! The simplicity is what makes it "genius". The fact it doesn't give the actual title of the movie, just the huge '3'. It gets people talking.

And of course, it's only the first teaser poster. We'll be seeing a few from here to June.

It's simple. Which is all a teaser poster has to be.
I wonder why they used the black background rather than the usual white.
