Join Rango in his "good guy" journey to the Wild Wild West!

In a few days time, couch potatoes will be changing their calendar pages from February to March. Time flies so fast, and so are the movie posters in movie theaters.

Rango is a film written by John Logan and directed by Gore Verbinski under the Nickelodeon Movies production. The story revolves around a pet chameleon who lives in a terrarium named Rango. An aspiring hero who finds himself removed from his American southwest surroundings and thrown into an Old West town called Dirt. The place was populated by various Western desert creatures. Since it’s his dream to be a hero, Rango establishes himself as a lawman. Patrolling streets ala sheriff. However, being the “good guy” is not suited in a place like Dirt. The good guys are busy under the cemetery grounds than chasing madmen. But Rango will prove them wrong. While trying to fit with the Western, Rango will question everything about himself. Watch the trailer after the break.

Woody and his pals have elbowed aside the green ogre as Toy Story 3 becomes the new top grossing animated film of all time. Indeed, no toys get left behind as they climbed up the spot.

Disney Pixar’s “Toy Story 3″ climbed its way up the Paramount Picture and Dreamwork’s “Shrek 2″ as the top-grossing animated film of all times. Walt Disney Studios announced that the movie has taken in a $ 920 million gross at the global box office, while the second installment of the Shrek movie just got $ 919.8 million. The 3D toon also crossed a $ 400 million domestic mark, making it the second Disney film to hit that level. The film directed by Lee Unkrich is the highest-grossing opening weekend with $ 109 million cash-ins in North America. The movie will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on November 2.

The Fall of 3D: Here to Stay, Will Stay That Way

3D screening started to fall shortly after the rise of Avatar. What lies for 3D screening in the near future? Get ready to put on your glasses and find some answers.

Before the turn of the year, in December, the clamor for moviegoers was to see Avatar in 3D – or they would miss out on this rare experience. Halfway through the year, “rare” fits the bill well enough. The 3D experience has become a commonplace concept in cinemas, and it is starting to fade away into the back of people’s minds.

Now that 3D screening has been made more accessible to the public, proven by the following suit of How to Train Your Dragon, Shrek and Toy Story after James Cameron’s big screen comeback piece emerged in the box office, the people are not actually buying the idea of Hollywood’s running a 3D filming marathon.

They would rather put in 10 bucks for a 2D screening than spend 15 for a 3D screening. This is an apparent trend, and is backed up by statistics that show the decline from the whopping 71% slice of Avatar’s earnings from 3D showings alone, to the almost-groundlicking 45% in 3D showings returns of the latest animated film release, Despicable Me.
