new Good Dinosaur trailer

The Good Dinosaur is the second Pixar film for 2015, and this new Good Dinosaur trailer shows off the incredible photo-realistic world built for the film as well as the more cartoonish characters that inhabit it.

The film is about an orphaned dinosaur who befriends a young human boy, and reportedly features relatively little dialogue as the two communicate through action and expression rather than words. This trailer follows suit, using music and action to communicate the film’s nature. There’s just one word spoken in this trailer, but you’ll understand the story just the same. Read More »

Sanjay's Super Team

The next computer animated short film from Pixar Animation Studios is Sanjay’s Super Team, which will be attached to The Good Dinosaur when that feature hits theaters on November 25th 2015.

Thursday at Comic Con, Pixar held a presentation called The Super Story Behind the Pixar Short Sanjay’s Super Team, which also served as the North American premiere of the short. After the jump you can find out what I thought about the film, and the backstory behind the film, which made me experience Sanjay’s Super Team on a level different from other shorts.

The Good Dinosaur logo

2015 is the rare year with not one but two Pixar films: this weekend’s Inside Out, and this fall’s still-mysterious The Good Dinosaur.

Most of what we’ve heard about the latter so far has had to do with its offscreen woes. The Good Dinosaur was originally scheduled for release in 2014, but was yanked off the calendar for extensive retooling. Now that it’s on track for a fall 2015 release, Pixar and director Peter Sohn are eager to show off some of the goods.

In an hourlong presentation this morning, Sohn offered a first look at some charming new footage from the film. In addition, he offered new details about the story and making of The Good Dinosaur, including his inspirations for the movie. (Yes, Jurassic Park came up.) Find out everything we learned after the jump.  Read More »

Recapping the news from the past seven days, you’ll find updates on the future of Marvel Studios‘ television side and Samuel L. Jackson in the cinematic universe, some rumors about the future of Star Wars and details on the past of a certain iconic character from the saga, a first look at The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, new writers for the Transformers franchise and future universe and more.

Plus, there’s trailers for Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Steven Spielberg’s Bride of Spies, Pixar’s The Good Dinosaur, and a double dose of Jake Gyllenhaal in Southpaw and Everest, and that’s not even half of the (mostly) great, new trailers we saw this week. Catch up on the Best Stories of the Week after the jump! Read More »

Good Dinosaur Details

Pixar premiered its new film Inside Out at Cannes, and along with that finished debut the studio showed off footage from two other upcoming films, The Good Dinosaur and Finding Dory.

The former film, about a dinosaur who befriends a human boy, represents the culmination of a long and ultimately revamped story development cycle. The latter is the sequel to Finding Nemo. Thanks to the Cannes presentation we have a few new comments from John Lasseter about each film, and tantalizing descriptions of environments in The Good Dinosaur as among the most realistic Pixar has ever created.
