Cars 3 Concept Art

In case you’ve forgotten, Disney and Pixar Animation still have Cars 3 on the way to theaters. With Finding Dory coming to theaters in June, I wouldn’t be surprised if some kind of short teaser trailer debuted with that Pixar sequel in order to get families excited about the return of Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and his trusty tow truck sidekick Mater (Larry the Cable Guy).

But when Cars 3 arrives next summer, Mater won’t be the only friend that Lightning McQueen has on the road. Some new concept art and details about the animated sequel introduce us to a new character, one who will help Lightning McQueen adapt to the fast-changing world of racing that seems to be leaving him behind as newer, more high-tech cars start leaving him in the dust.

the little prince trailer

Despite being a critically well-regarded international hit with a recognizable line-up of voice talent that took home the Best Animated Feature Film trophy at the César Awards, earlier this year, The Little Prince has hit a few speed bumps on its way to American theaters. Originally scheduled for release on March 18, 2016, Paramount abruptly pulled the film from its schedule on March 11, with no explanation given. Netflix, with its seemingly bottomless bag of “Screw You, We’re Netflix” money, swooped in and rescued director Mark Osborne‘s film.

Now, the streaming service has unveiled a new The Little Prince trailer along with a release date.

Finding Dory Clip

I was as hesitant about a sequel to Finding Nemo as anyone else, but the closer we get the release date of Finding Dory, the more optimistic I get regarding this whole film. It looks gorgeously animated, funny and charming. Most importantly, there are shreds of evidence in the various trailers that suggest this talking fish movie will reduce me to a blubbering mess in true Up and Inside Out fashion. Bring it on, Pixar. This wouldn’t be the first time you’ve brought a sledgehammer down upon my fragile emotions.

The first Finding Dory clip that has debuted online doesn’t feature any heartstring tugging, but it does feature the return of few familiar faces and it’s perfectly adorable.

Sing Trailer

Illumination Entertainment has a couple of new animated movies hitting theaters this year. The first is the animal adventure The Secret Life of Pets, arriving this summer. But just before Christmas, Illumination will get musical with Sing. In what is basically Zootopia meets American Idol, one koala (Matthew McConaughey) decides to put on a huge singing competition to save his theater, and some average animals with incredible pipes look at it as their opportunity for a better life. Of course, it’s all fueled by an endless array of popular songs from yesterday and today.

Finding Dory Trailer

This summer brings Finding Dory to theaters, the sequel to Pixar Animation’s hit film Finding Nemo from 13 years ago. The story follows Dory (voiced by Ellen DeGeneres) as she sets out to find her family. And as the new Finding Dory trailer illustrates, she lost them a long time ago, when she was a much younger fish. There’s also the introduction of the marine life institute that Dory gets arrives at when some divers find her caught in those pesky, plastic pop can rings. At the institute she meets a whole array of new colorful underwater friends who might be able to help her out.

The BFG Trailer

After premiering at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival this weekend, one more trailer for Steven Spielberg‘s fantasy film The BFG has arrived. Based on Roald Dahl‘s classic children’s novel of the same name, the film follows a young girl (newcomer Ruby Barnhill) who finds herself in the world of giants after befriending one of the 24-foot inhabitants, played by Bridge of Spies star Mark Rylance.

In the latest The BFG trailer, we get to see much more of the giant world and impressive visual effects. Just from a technical standpoint, this already looks better than the recent giant adventure Jack the Giant Slayer, though it’s clearly a much more family friendly, whimsical tale. See for yourself in the new trailer after the jump. Read More »
