WALL-E is sort of a tricky movie to market. The ads essentially focused on WALL-E's (the character) inquisitive nature, mixed in with some Axiom stuff, so I think they did a decent job with what they had to work with. The movie itself is rather different than most films (especially animated films) so the previews still aren't really a great indicator to the film's style.
I thought the previews were great actually; they are what sold on me on the movie long before I had seen it. I liked how they featured a glimpse of almost every facet of the movie: humor, poignancy, excitement, romance, et cetera.
The previews/trailers weren't very good.
Critics are raving over Maggie's Toilet Training!
I loved the trailers. That first teaser (the one about Pixar's past projects) made me fall in love with Wall-E, even though very little footage was shown.
I saw this on opening day and again the following week. Adored it both times. May see it a third time soon.
WALL-E is a cannibal. He takes the parts of the dead robots. It's creepy when you listen to the opening song [not Sunday Clothes] as you think about it.
He's gotta harvest to keep from breaking down. It's a nice touch, and indeed a little dark.
I was hoping that WALL-E would kick Finding Nemo's ass for highest grossing animated film of all time, but it's not even beaten Kung Fu Panda. How is Disney's first environmental post-apocalyptic science fiction romance getting beaten by...a panda?
Well, according to Box Office Mojo, Kung Fu Panda made $193,221,867 in its first 5 weeks (in the US), whereas Wall-E has made $195,308,076 in its first 5 weeks.
So it is beating Kung Fu Panda, but just barely. And keep in mind Panda did come out a whole 3 weeks before Wall-E.
I'm very impressed with the LACK of advertising for WALL-E!
Oops. My mistake. Also,
Kung Fu Panda: $210,495,000
I hope that our heroic robot will catch up with the lazy Panda.
finally got round to seeing this today. great, great movie. definitely rate it as one of pixars best, but saying i think it's THE best is a little far. incredible film, nonetheless

gave it a 5, since it's like nothing I've never seen before, if I had to give a letter grade, I'd give it a B+ or an A-, since I thought certain parts of the story did drag on a little, but it still had a really good story and the animation was phenomenal, by far my favorite of the Pixar movies
I finally watched this today. Not my favourite Pixar film, but it definetly comes close. The Incredibles just edges this one, but I really liked Wall-E. I'll give it 4/5.
That's just sad, that a truly quality movie can be so far below such movies as the Shrek trilogy. Of course I've never seen the Shrek movies, so I can't judge them.
Like everything that Pixar makes (except Ratatouille, It was a bit boring), WALL-E is a masterpiece. I watched it, and I think it's probably one of the best of Pixar. It was funny, the story was clever, and it gives a better message of the future and the enviroment.
Saw it last week, and WOW. WHat a great movie, definately one of pixar's deeper films, probably my second favorite Pixar movie behind Toy Story because nothing can beat Toy Story!
Sounds pretty cool, I might need to spring for the 3-disc version. Can someone explain to me exactly what the deal is with the "digital copy"? What's that...uh, do exactly?
Yeah I'll probably be getting the 3-disc set.DisneyFile Is

Saw the movie last week, was ok but disappointed. Preferred the Presto short to the actual movie. Nice ideas in the movie but give me Toy Story or The Incredibles any day. But better than Cars though, way better than that...
Lightspeed Briefs, as seen in your dreams.

Wow, that 3-disc edition sounds great. I'll pick it up used on Amazon, hopefully I can find it for about $20 by mid-December.
I'll be getting the Blu Ray, which I'm glad there giving a 2 disc treatment, unlike the Ratatouille Blu Ray which was only one disc and didn't have that many features. Either way I love this movie, bummer that the Blu Ray doesn't come with the digital copy though.
