Even as we dive into the heart of the summer movie season, some of the most promising imminent releases could be titles that aren’t new at all. Pixar is re-releasing four of its recent hits — Toy Story 3, Ratatouille, Up, and Wall-E — into AMC theaters for four days over Memorial Day weekend, from May 25 through May 28. The films will be be up against the horror Chernobyl Diaries and the sci-fi sequel Men in Black 3. Yeah, given those options, I may just opt to revisit one of the Pixar classics too.

Especially since tickets will be going for as low as $6 each. Considering that regular screenings generally cost twice that in my area, that’s quite the bargain. Further sweetening the deal, each screening will also include a classic Pixar short and a behind-the-scenes sneak peek at Pixar’s next project, Brave. Head to the AMC website for more info on locations, pricing, and showtimes.

And speaking of Brave, hit the jump for details on its world premiere, which will coincide with the debut of Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre.

toy story 2

Disney announced at their ShoWest presentation that Pixar’s Toy Story and Toy Story 2 will be released as a 3D double feature on October 2nd 2009. The 2 week only limited engagement is being called a “great value” in these economically challenging times. No word on what price theaters will charge for the double feature. Disney originally had the first Toy Story 3D rerelease scheduled for October, and the second one set for February. Disney also premiered updated logos for Toy Story and Toy Story 2 which feature a greater 3D bevel and more reflective elements, but for the most part, look the same. Toy Story 3 is still scheduled for a June 18th 2010 release.
