The first trailer for Pixar’s summer 2015 release, Inside Out, was really more a reminder of the film’s existence. “Hey, remember us? I know we don’t have a movie in 2014, but we’ve done really awesome work in the past, and next year we’ve got something special for you.”
Now there’s a second look at the Pete Docter-directed film. This one is almost more of a tease because it only touches upon the main characters and doesn’t mention the story. Instead, it focus on the concept – that the emotions in your head are characters. But it’s two minutes of funny, beautiful footage from the movie. With seven months until release, that’ll do.
Check out the new Inside Out trailer below. Read More »

Adapting a popular property is always a dicey prospect, and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry‘s The Little Prince is one of the most beloved children’s classics of all time.

So it’s with a great sigh of relief and (not gonna lie) a few nostalgic tears stinging our eyes that we can tell you the first The Little Prince trailer looks freaking fantastic — sweet, inventive, and almost as lyrical as the book itself. But don’t take our word for it. Hit the jump to watch The Little Prince trailer. Read More »
