Anyone disappointed by Pixar’s recent focus on sequels should be looking forward to Inside Out, which features what might be the studio’s most original premise yet. Directed by Pete Docter, the new adventure follows the five emotions residing within the mind of an 11-year-old girl named Riley.
They are Joy (Amy Poehler), Sadness (Phyllis Smith), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), and Fear (Bill Hader), and they’re currently guiding her through a rough move to San Francisco. But when things go wrong at HQ, the emotions embark on a journey to set things right. Watch the new Inside Out trailer after the jump.

This summer, a lot of superheroes and sequels will hit the big screen. But one man is bringing an old fashion, high concept action movie to the table. That man is Dwayne Johnson and the movie is San Andreas, directed by Brad Peyton. It’s a big budget disaster movie showing what an emergency rescue pilot will do to save his daughter when a 9.0 magnitude earthquake hits California. Written by Lost executive producer Carlton Cuse, San Andreas opens May 29 and a new trailer is now online. Watch the new San Andreas trailer below. Read More »
We knew that great Game of Thrones poster featuring Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) staring up at one of Daenerys’ dragons was just a preface to seeing the real scene in action, and the incredible new Game of Thrones season 5 trailer does not disappoint.
In addition to giving us the moving version of that poster, there’s all sorts of great new footage here, including (but hardly limited to) the “breaking the wheel” monologue from Daenerys, in which she promises doom for the cycle of family violence that has defined politics in Westeros, and more footage of Jonathan Pryce’s character the High Sparrow. I was already excited for this new season of the show, but this footage is kicking that interest into overdrive. Read More »
In the past few years, few movies have been as secretive as Tomorrowland. Directed by Brad Bird and co-written by Damon Lindelof, almost everything about the sci-fi Disney adventure has been mysterious. Is Disneyland part of it? What’s the 1952 box? Who is The Optimist? How does The World’s Fair fit in? Do Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison play a role? Speculation ran rampant.
The first teaser trailer gave fans a bit of an idea of the story and now, a second and likely final Tomorrowland trailer gives us even more. It’s the story of a young girl (Britt Robertson) who meets a scientist (George Clooney) to travel to a secret world called Tomorrowland. The films opens May 22, and you can see the latest Tomorrowland trailer below. Read More »
Unless your name is Joss Whedon or Kevin Feige, odds are you haven’t seen Avengers: Age of Ultron yet. The film is less than two months away but that still feels like an eternity after the epic third trailer that came out last week.
Until the film opens, this new video is probably the closest thing you’ll get to seeing the whole movie. YouTuber JohnnyB2K edited together the three trailers released for the superhero sequel into, what he thinks, is the chronological order in the film. It clocks in at just over five minutes of footage and gives a pretty great idea of the size and scope of the movie. Also, it’ll make for a fun rewatch in two months to see how much he got right, wrong, and what beats are noticeably messing. Check out the massive Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer mashup below.

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we see what Bill Plympton is up to, visit a youth incarceration facility to deal with our rage in a cage, get all kinds of interested in a story of teen preggers, spend some quality time working on our feminine side, and I still have no clue what’s up with one trailer in particular.

The first teaser for HAPPYish, the new Showtime series starring Steve Coogan, was just OK. It introduced a middle-aged guy who is struggling to deal with his family and changing social structures around him and, maybe, not having such a great time with all of it. This new HAPPYish trailer is infinitely more entertaining. It indicates a lot more of the show’s moment to moment comedy, and reveals more variety in Coogan’s performance. This is the one to check out, and you can do so after the break. Read More »

The more things change, eh? Season 3 of Veep ended with a major step forward for Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), as the president’s resignation put her in the Oval Office. And the Season 4 trailer begins with her reveling in her new position of power — she’s like “a real-life Mariah Carey,” in the immortal words of Mike (Matt Walsh).
But it’s not long before she finds herself drowning in the same old bullshit: incompetent staff members, petty rivalries, broken equipment, and her own delusions of grandeur. Watch the Veep Season 4 trailer after the jump. Read More »

The Connection seems like the vaguest of titles, but once you realize what the film is about it’s actually pretty perfect. It’s a new spin on William Friedkin‘s The French Connection, with the “French” part omitted because, well, the film is already French.
Jean Dujardin plays Pierre Michel, a real-life Marseilles magistrate. In 1975, he tried to take down Gaetano Zampa (Gilles Lellouche), the kingpin behind one of the biggest drug smuggling operations in history. Cédric Jimenez directs the film.
