I noticed the same thing, and even mentioned it to another member I was talking to at the time it was going on.. I found it rather strange.

I bet none of you have noticed this:

The last photo on the left, of the MacBook Pro, under the "Photos, music, and videos. Be VIP of your TV." category on THIS (http://www.apple.com/appletv/) page. Do you notice Toy Story 3 is already artworked and in their iTunes library? ^^

It's free advertising, of course the studio will let Apple use their movie to demo a feature that makes money.

And it worked. People are talking about Iron Man 2 on this forum because of that demo. ;)

Yeah they aren't even the full movies that are played back in the demo. It is obviously just a clip, which is evidenced by the fact that it starts at a random point in the movie rather than the beginning (and never prompts to resume playback).

Same thing happens in nearly every demo of this type. It's all very planned and staged, no surprise unless it's the first time you've watched a keynote.
