Week 29 - Wall-E


WALL-E, promoted with an interpunct as WALL•E, is a 2008 American computer-animated post-apocalyptic science fiction film produced by Pixar Animation Studios and directed by Andrew Stanton. The story follows a robot named WALL-E, who is designed to clean up a waste-covered Earth far in the future. He falls in love with another robot named EVE, who also has a programmed task, and follows her into outer space on an adventure that changes the destiny of both his kind and humanity. Both robots exhibit an appearance of free will and emotions similar to humans, which develop further as the film progresses. Walt Disney Pictures released it in the United States and Canada on June 27, 2008. The film grossed $23.2 million on its opening day, and $63.1 million during its opening weekend in 3,992 theaters, ranking #1 at the box office. This ranks as the fifth highest-grossing opening weekend for a Pixar film. Following Pixar tradition, WALL-E was paired with a short film, Presto, for its theatrical release.

Another Pixar film! Honestly, I keep thinking that the Pixar sketches will be the hardest, since they're 3D, but so far they seem to be coming out the best. Here's the cute little robot from planet earth, flying through space with his fire extinguisher! And what's that he's making in his wake? A heart! Just in time for Valentine's Day!
