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 »

Fox’s strategy of debuting freshman comedy New Girl online two weeks early paid off beautifully last fall, so it makes sense that they’d take a similar approach to this year’s crop of new shows. The first episodes of The Mindy Project and Ben & Kate have both hit the web this week, nearly a month in advance of their September 25 on-air premieres.

Created by and starring The Office alum Mindy Kaling, The Mindy Project follows a doctor trying to get her life back on track in her early 30s. Ben & Kate, meanwhile, stars Dakota Johnson and Nat Faxon (one-half of the Oscar-winning The Descendants screenwriting duo) as a pair of grown-up siblings who move in together. Along with New Girl and fellow returning series Raising Hope, The Mindy Project and Ben & Kate will comprise Fox’s new Tuesday night comedy block. Watch the new shows’ pilot episodes in their entirety after the jump.

How you feel about Nicholas Stoller‘s The Five-Year Engagement may depend on what you’re expecting. Those looking for another instant classic from producer Judd Apatow and his circle will likely be disappointed, as the new comedy proves too inconsistent to hold up against the likes of The 40-Year-Old Virgin or even Stoller’s own Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Those simply hoping for a pleasant romantic comedy with likable stars, however, will probably find that The Five-Year Engagement surpasses those standards thanks to a seriously charming lead couple (Jason Segel and Emily Blunt), and a handful of very funny gags.
