Toy Story and Superhero Movie Guide

Unless you’ve been residing on another planet for the last ten years you are aware that superhero movies have taken over the Silver Screen.

While the super folk have cropped up in movies and TV shows for some time it wasn’t until the Marvel Cinematic Universe kicked into high gear that the genre really took off.

To be sure Marvel had some success with superhero movies in previous years with the X-Men, Spider-Man, Blade, etc. but it was the first Iron Man movie that catapulted the super hero movie into the spotlight.

DC Comics had kick-started the superhero movie craze with the release of its first Superman movie in the late 1970s and in the late 1980s with Batman, directed by Tim Burton. 

For nearly a full decade afterwards superhero movies languished until the first X-Men movie premiered.

Of course not only DC and Marvel superhero movies were produced-there were others based on smaller publishers‘ properties, but overall most movies were movies starring characters from the big two.

The Ultimate Superhero Movie Guide, from Carlton Books and author Helen O’Hara, examines all the superhero movies starting with Superman I and II and proceeding up until present day.

Full-color photos complement the comprehensive text, which examines the movies, their characters (good and bad), sets, production secrets and more.  It is ‘The Definitive Handbook For Comic Book Film Fans’.
It’s hard to believe that the first Toy Story movie came out almost a quarter of a century ago.  Recently the forth film in the franchise premiered and kids loved it!  In it a new character, Forky, is introduced along with some other lovable toys.

Toy Story: Woody’s Augmented Reality Adventure is more than a book about the key characters in the movie, it actually seems to come alive!

Download the free App and suddenly the pages jump out in 3D, Buzz’s buttons activate his wings, laser and sounds, Hamm fills with coins and more.

Collect the reality clues and unlock a Toy Story 4 character!  It’s more than a book; it’s a whole new world of adventure filled with excitement, lights, sounds and fun chances to interact with the characters.

The toys are alive!
