Pixar is about to get existential with Soul, their latest original movie with a wild premise.

Next year, Pixar Animation will be bringing two original movies to theaters. It’ll be the first time they haven’t released a sequel in a calendar year since 2015. Onward arrives first in March, but then summer brings a new movie that was announced earlier this year, and we’ve got a new look at it.

Soul, directed by Inside Out and Up helmer Pete Docter, follows Joe Gardner (voiced by Jamie Foxx), an aging middle school music teacher who has long dreamed of performing jazz music on stage. Gardner gets his chance when he’s booked as the opening act at the Half Note Club, a real jazz club in New York City. But his jazz debut is put in jeopardy when an accident causes his soul to be separated from his body, sending him to the “You Seminar,” a place where souls develop and gain passions before being placed in a newborn child. Check out the first official Pixar Soul photo below. Read More »

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee Trailer

Plenty of Seinfeld fans are probably hungry for some kind of special celebration in honor the show’s 30th anniversary. We’re not sure if there’s anything in the works on that front, but there will at least be some new programming with Jerry Seinfeld getting back in cars and getting some coffee (and maybe some breakfast, lunch or dinner) with some of the biggest names in comedy.

A new season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is coming to Netflix later this month, and the first trailer shows off the impressive roster that Seinfeld is talking to this time, including Eddie Murphy, Seth Rogen, Matthew Broderick, Martin Short, and more. But first, Seinfeld wants to call off all the blatant ripoffs of the series that have spawned since his web series took off. There are a lot more than you may have realized.

Anyway, get a load of some of the conversations in the new Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee trailer below. Read More »

Netflix sci-fi

Talk about an intriguing combination of talent: Jamie Foxx (Django Unchained, Collateral) and Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception, Looper) have joined the cast of an untitled Netflix sci-fi movie that involves characters gaining superpowers.
