Up (Docter & Peterson, 2009) Next movie by Pixar


HD Trailer | IMDB | May 29, 2009

In this "coming of old age" story, a seventysomething hero, alongside his clueless wilderness ranger sidekick, travels the globe, fighting beasts and villains, and eating dinner at 3:30 in the afternoon.




Finally, a trailer teaser!

I thought at one point this was to be Pixar's first 3D film.

Dammit. I can't view the trailer now either, is it only in 3D?

Noob

Pixar ain't failed me yet and I'm not expecting them to now either.

Trailer worked just fine for me at apple.com (standard - large).

This will no-doubt be good. I really think Pixar is incapable of failure.

"failure" can be interpreted in many ways [one word: 'Cars']

My three year old nephew is going to kick your ass. I mean, if he knew who you were. And could access the internet. And read.

For me, Cars is my least favorite of all the forays into the animation genre by Pixar. I simply could not connect to any of the characters, or truly feel their plight. However, they are, for the most part, infallible.

Cars only failed on the Pixar scale. If it was from any other studio, it would have been a triumph.

well duh! 'Cars' totally pandered to the kids, the script was flat and I personally found the voices grating, but enough of Cars..

'Up' looks impressive, I hope it's lives up to it's premise.

Pixar could remake Gummo and make it the most charming and heartwarming picture of the year. I'm in.

And Cars is tied with A Bug's Life as the lesser Pixar film. But that's only because the rest are tied for first.

I think many will agree 'Cars' is their weakest effort, but the thing was pure gold as far as merchandising/marketing. Every studio has to have a film that is panned as there "worst"... its just with the case of Pixar, there worst really isnt all that bad when compared to others in the genre.

A lot of people seemed to come out and hate Wall-E.

I really, really liked "Cars". I know I'm in the minority on that one, but it's a movie with a lot of heart, a lot of humor, and one REALLY unfortunate dated pop-culture reference that I thought Pixar was above. Otherwise, yeah it's not Pixar's best but it's still a sweet little movie. Anyone who disagrees is the reincarnation of Pol Pot!!

What, really? You owe it to yourself to at least watch Ratatouille and Wall-E.

I didn't think Wall-E had gotten distribution in Bizarroworld.

I guess you weren't following the Wall-E thread here very closely, or are familiar with our good friend Mr. Orndorf

Regarding the trailer, lest this turn into another "Cars is great/no it's not"-thread* i have a question about the trailer -- where the hell does that boy scout come from?

He's not on the porch when the house initially takes off, nor on the porch when the house passes the girl's window. I suppose he could jump onto the porch from the building's rooftop...

*although, to weigh in, I hated Cars in the theatre, but have come to appreciate its story and characterization through repeated viewings with my Cars-obsessed 3 y.o. son.

I would assume the kid's on the porch, by accident when the House lifts off by all those balloons, he's just an innocent bystander literally swept up by the event.
