First Look at Disney's Paperman Short

Walt Disney is releasing, in conjunction with its new animated feature Wreck It Ralph, a lovely-looking black and white short called Paperman about a lonely man who meets a woman on a train he believes to be the woman of his dreams. The short is set in the mid twentieth century and animated in pretty stunning grainy black and white -- probably an early candidate for an Oscar.

While this is not the quirky indie comedy of the same name that starred Jeff Daniels and Ryan Reynolds, it does appear to be a sweet, romantic tilt with an interesting look, which could offer a nice balance to the off-kilter video game-themed Wreck It Ralph. Both movies hit the big screen November 2.
