UP New Trailer 3 & New Posters – Pixar
March 9, 2009


Pixar’s UP Trailer 3 on YouTube.



Screenshot From Pixar’s New UP Trailer. Character Based on Kirk Douglas?


Quite a few items in this post as Pixar ramps up marketing for the film. The first half of the trailer features scenes that have been shown in the previous trailers although, in the second half we are treated to some new unseen footage. The above screenshot illustrates the excellent use of Subsurface Scattering on the characters skin. Watch the UP Trailer 3 HD


UP Posters of Carl Fredricksen, Russell and Dug the Dog

Also, new out are three high resolution posters to promote the film. One for the main character Carl Fredricksen, one for the boy explorer Russell (who I hope doesn’t become too annoying) and the other for Dug the talking dog. You’ll see how they got around the talking part in the trailer. UP is the first Pixar film to be released in Disney Digital 3-D and will be released in UK theatres on 16th October 2009.
