INSIDE OUT

Today at D23 John Lasseter called Up director Pete Docter‘s new film Inside Out “one of the most unique films I’ve ever been associated with – a magical, wonderful, original film.”

The concept is one, they said, that can only be done in animation. We’re inside Riley, age 11. She’s a happy, adventurous kid from Minnesota who loves hockey. But her family movies to San Francisco and everything changes. The characters are her emotions. Anger, pictured as red with a flattop, is voiced by Lewis BlackMindy Kaling is Disgust, teen and green. Bill Hader is fear, purple and puzzled, in a black and white checkered shirt. Phyllis Smith is Sadness, blue and wearing glasses.

And the most important character is Joy, voiced by Amy Poehler, in a yellow dress, with short blue hair. We have more story info below. Read More »

THE GOOD DINOSAUR

Today Disney and Pixar are announcing details for the film The Good Dinosaur, from which we’ve previously seen only concept art. Footage was shown today, which Peter described as “very beautiful, not very cartoony, almost like a segment from Fantasia.” The story is described as the biggest “what if?” ever — what if the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs missed Earth entirely?

The primary cast was also announced. The primary characters are a family of farming Apatosaurs, with John Lithgow as the father, Frances McDormand as the mother, Bill Hader and Neil Patrick Harris as brothers Forrest and Cliff, Judy Greer as Ivy, and Lucas Neff voicing the lead character Arlo.

We have many more details below. Read More »

Clear History

Walter White isn’t the only prickly small-screen antihero coming back in the next couple of weeks. Larry David is returning to television for the first time since Curb Your Enthusiasm‘s eighth season ended in 2011 with Clear History, a new movie by HBO.

Technically, David’s Clear History character is entirely separate from his Curb one. For starters, his name here isn’t “Larry David” but Nathan Flomm. For another, Flomm’s a marketing exec who works with Jon Hamm’s character. But the film’s premise — Flomm loses his stake in a startup after a petty argument, only to see the company grow into a billion-dollar corporation — certainly sounds very Curb-y. Watch the new trailer after the jump.

cloudy-2-pic

The first teaser for Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 introduced an island overrun by food/animal hybrids — the sort of place a hungry Jules Verne might scribble down in a notebook. A featurette showed off more of the “foodimals,” and now the full trailer for the film serves up a few additional glimpses of the weird beasts.

This trailer also gives more of a lead-in to the story, telling how the events of the first film are followed up in this sequel, and throws out quite a few more food puns. Read More »

Turbo

DreamWorks Animation has already gotten us to believe that pandas can be kung fu masters, dragons can be man’s best friend, and cats can be swashbuckling outlaws. In that light, I guess an snail competing in the Indy 500 isn’t that much of a stretch.

Turbo stars Ryan Reynolds (or his voice, anyway) as an ordinary snail who dreams of going fast. He gets his wish when a freak accident grants him superpowers, and with the support of his pals manages to enter the world-famous race. The new trailer offers a look at some of Turbo’s human supporters, including optimistic Tito (Michael Peña), pragmatic Angelo (Luis Guzmán), and brash Kim-Ly (Ken Jeong, playing a woman). Watch it after the jump.
