Pixar gives up new footage from its latest sequel in this trailer for Monsters University. Starting off with a classic bit of “arriving at college” footage, we’re introduced to the institution in which Mike and Sully meet, form a rivalry, and eventually become friends. It doesn’t look quite as warm and fuzzy as the original film was, but there’s enough of Pixar’s gorgeous animation to make it a treat to look at.
The new and returning cast includes John Goodman, Billy Crystal, Steve Buscemi, Jennifer Tilly, Kelsey Grammer, Frank Oz, Ken Jeong, John Ratzenberger and J.B. Smoove, and you’ll hear many of them here, along with an unexpected blast of rock from 1989. Read More »

Couple good little Pixar notes today. The first is that the next film from Up director Pete Docter has officially been titled. Instead of the Untitled Disney-Pixar Inside the Mind Film, it will be called Inside Out. Which we mostly knew, but it’s good to have that point settled. The temp title was just awkward.
The movie will take place inside a human mind, and more specifically will be “told from the perspective of the emotions inside the mind of a little girl.” The art above is really all we’ve got as far as visuals for the film, but expect more soon. [ComingSoon]
After the break, a Monsters University featurette features director Dan Scanlon explaining the new film, and giving up quite a few little plot points. Read More »

With Monsters University turning back the clock to look at characters from Monsters Inc. just when they were learning to scare, it was inevitable that Pixar’s marketing team would decide to play around with the ways that real universities pitch themselves to students. The main website for the film is, in fact, a play on a stereotypical university front page, and we’ve seen a few other .
Today, the broadcast of the Rose Bowl game saw a new TV spot for Monsters University. But this one doesn’t feature the typical look at the film. Instead of a fast cut collection of footage clueing audiences in to the early years of Mike and Sully, the spot is made to resemble a promo for an institution of higher learning… only one for creatures with fur and odd numbers of eyes. See the spot below. Read More »
Anyone who considers the number thirteen unlucky obviously hasn’t looked at the upcoming film schedule. 2013 looks like a movie lovers dream with a huge bevy of different sci-fi films for us to enjoy, major superhero films, sequels we didn’t think we see, classic novels being adapted, prequels to great movies, true stories told and so much more.
Yes, 2013 is looking promising and with 2012 just about over, I’m proud to present my top ten anticipated films of 2013. Read More »
The 3D version of Monsters, Inc. opens this week, and Disney has been using the imminent release as a reason to dole out new images from the upcoming prequel, Monsters University, which will be in theaters next summer. The latest images include a look at a supporting monster from the original film who shows up as a young frightener in the prequel, and we’ll pass along a couple other recent shots, too. Read More »
I didn’t ever expect to see any link between metal and a Pixar movie, but we’re living in a wonderful world. And so the metal band Mastodon, which has already scored Jonah Hex (twice!) and contributed music to the Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie, will have a song in Monsters University. Weird, right? The info comes straight from the band, and I can confirm that it isn’t a joke. Unfortunately I can’t tell you just how the song is being used, but expect to hear it in a good context to bring the band into the film’s world.
We probably won’t know any more until Monsters University is much closer to opening, on June 21, 2013.
After the break, Pete Docter‘s new Pixar film — the one taking place inside a young woman’s mind — is reportedly titled Inside Out; Disney’s Snow Queen retelling Frozen gets a new logo; and an animation director’s roundtable breaks down the business.

Ask most people to pick their favorite Pixar movie and one that often gets forgotten is Monsters Inc. Pete Docter’s Oscar winner came out over a decade ago and the characters haven’t resurfaced. So, unlike films such as Toy Story, The Incredibles and Wall-E, it’s simply not as fresh in everyone’s mind. But audiences love Monsters Inc. and that love is about to start bubbling up again. The original film gets a 3D re-release December 19 and you can be sure it’ll include a brand new trailer for 2013′s prequel Monsters University.
Two teaser posters for Pixar’s next film have now been revealed, marking the start of the print campaign. Directed by Dan Scanlon, Monsters University follows Mike and Sulley when they first met in college, studying to become scarers. It features returning stars Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi and more. Check out the posters below. Read More »
