New Poster Hints at Possible Theatrical Release for Disney’s PLANES; Promo Poster for IRON MAN 3

     June 22, 2012

Just the other day, we got our first look at James Franco in Sam Raimi’s Oz the Great and Powerful by way of a sheet of promo posters.  The image was only a close-up of the Franco poster, but the full sheet actually gives us a look at a promo poster for Iron Man 3 and hints at a theatrical release for Disney’s Cars spinoff Planes.  All the films included on the sheet are slated to be released theatrically, and Planes is included in the bunch.  Rumors have been swirling that John Lasseter is so fond of the film that he’s keen on giving it a theatrical release instead of its originally planned direct-to-DVD distribution, and this poster seems to suggest that Planes is indeed headed to theaters after all.

Hit the jump for more, including the promo posters for Planes and Iron Man 3.

disney-planes-logo-image-01Planes began as a direct-to-DVD spinoff of Pixar’s Cars, with the story focusing on skybound anthropomorphic vehicles.  The “comedy packed with action and adventure” centers on a small-town crop dusting plane who longs to enter an epic around-the-world air race.  As you can see, the plot owes much to the story of Cars and Cars 2. The DVD/Blu-ray release was previously slated for spring of 2013, and this poster puts the release at September 2013 (though this is an international release).  We still have no official confirmation that Planes is headed to theaters, but if and when the announcement does come it shouldn’t be as a surprise.

Also included on the poster sheet is a new promo poster for Iron Man 3.  The image obviously doesn’t come from the actual film (which is currently in production), but it’s a superhero movie so there’s gotta be at least a few people itching for any kind of look they can score from Marvel’s next feature.

    We need a goddamn Cars spinoff like a fish needs a bicycle. The once infallible Pixar is hitting a lot of sour notes these days.
    Where the HELL is Incredibles 2?

    • phil

      its not Pixar, just Disney.

    • Kevin

      Just curious. What are all the “sour notes” that Pixar has been hitting lately??

      • Strong Enough

        Cars 2
        A possible Toy Story 4
        Making a Monsters Inc prequel
        A mediocre Brave movie
        and now possibly a “Planes” movie no one asked for

        I am a Pixar junkie and i don’t mind but i;m sure thats what he was referring too

      • Kevin

        Hold on. Only 1 of those movies has actually been released. And Brave is getting strong reviews. So, therefore, only 1 movie, Cars 2, has been a misstep. So 1 movie is enough discredited all of Pixar??

        @ Kevin

        When dealing with reasonable people, no… one movie does not equate to “a lot of sour notes.”

      • NolanFan

        Brave… Strong reviews? Hah.

      • Kevin

        Currently 74% on Rottentomatoes. Yeah, I’d call that strong. So it’s not the 100% that Toy Story 3 got. Does that still mean Pixar is heading down the tubes?

      • Chachi

        Uh, yeah. I’d say 74% on the Tomatometer on Rotten Tomatoes qualifies as strong reviews. Just because Goldberg didn’t like it doesn’t mean others won’t. Saw it yesterday and it was good. Not Nemo, Incredibles or Wall-E good, but infinitely better than Cars.

      • Charly

        Seen Brave yestreday, not pixar best, but waaay better than madagascar 3, (that people never complain about), and even better than some pixar pics like both cars and a bugs life. but to be critic against pixar make some people look like interesting i guess.

      • gray

        Hey, you seem to be forgetting Planes is NOT made by Pixar !

      • Dafy

        Compared to the rest of Pixar’s movie line up, Brave can be seen as a misstep, just as the original Cars was and its sequel. Excluding those three movies, Pixar does not have a fresh rating under 90%. The old Pixar would have never settled for good enough as they have been seeming to do lately.

    • Whiskeyriver

      No, it’s not just Disney. Lasseter is responsible as well. He’s losing his artistic touch, his creativity, and his editor aesthetic. Not everything is great, John.

  • Tim

    He must be referring to all of the oodles of money they’ve been making.

  • Sean

    Note to Disney: Release the information of the release date and movie title for Pirates of the Caribbean 5 as soon as possible!!!!!
