So excited for te fourth Toy Story, especially since the short before Cars 2.

Bummer about the chances of Zombieland 2.

I hope the King Of Kong mockumentary is decent.

Not very excited about the Office news.

Ugh. No Toy Story 4 please. The third one wrapped it up very well. I hate when they extend franchises beyond trilogies. Just stupid.
