   Trailers to me come in two varieties usually: on one hand they're made to make the film so awesome and use the best scenes only to lead to utter disappointment OR they throw you the shittiest scenes/scenes that make no sense out of context and we think the film will blow and it ends up being quite good. Not saying all films fit the mold but in general that is how I see trailers.


I've noticed a growing trend for trailers to feature scenes that aren't even in the movie (and probably were never intended to be).

Don't hate me, Trinity.  I'm just the messenger.

As far as I know, Pixar's theatrical trailers have always been scenes not present in the actual film.

It appears that Toy Story was the only exception.

I noticed that the Pixar teaser trailers showed scenes not presented in the movie whereas the actual longer trailers do show actual scenes.

Cars 2 looks better than Cars 1 in my opinion.....maybe someday I'll get around to watching it ..but I've never seen Cars 1, lol

I like the Pixar teaser trailers. They are more fun to watch in a theater waiting for the movie to get going than your typical movie trailer.

Cars was extremely predictable, which made it a little lackluster, but I did like it. All of Pixar's movies are predictable to some degree but it was quite obvious with Cars.

Except that the whole theme of the movie was selflessness and giving and "winning is not the most important thing" and all that, so it would have most likely been contradictory to the moral if he won.

Something I didn't expect to see, many of the reviews of Cars 2 on Amazon aren't complaining about how bad the film was, they're complaining that the movie is too violent and complex for their children. hmpf

Does that make the film fail, since it's aimed towards children?

It looked bad to me. I love Pixar, but why all the sequels? That one just looked...meh.

-------

On another note, my sister and I were talking about how wonderful Pixar movies are. Like how in every one you can pick out the most emotional scene that just makes the movie. Like in Up, it's the beginning montage with Carl and his wife. In Ratatouille, it's the review by Ego. In Monster's Inc. it's the end where he says goodbye to Boo....and so on. I love Pixar movies that make me choke up, even a little.

Complex? Christ, if the kids can't figure this movie out they're just idiots. It's pretty damn straightforward. (Read for a summary of the plot)--->

It IS a dark film that kills off a load of cars in the first half but complex? Really?

I do know that part, and do kids really need to understand the oil thing if they're four years old to enjoy the film? I'm kinda surprised that kids today don't know about the oil crisis when it's a huge news item nine days out of ten right along with the economy heading for the crapper again. Between TV and the internet you'd think more young'uns would know about this stuff. Besides, parents can explain it to their ki- oh wait, they won't because they're too damn lazy to do that. Sorry, forgot for a moment.

The fact thatthe film deals with big oil, and the timing of its release is somewhat spooky, but if it instills in younger gens that we need to develop alternatives to fossil fuels then I give nothing but praise to the film for bringing attention to it. It's no different than Wall-E's push of going green.

I haven't seen Cars 2 and don't really plan on it but the synopsis Professor Zoidy posted doesn't seem very complicated. The last thing we need to be doing is simplifying crap for the sake of kids.

Kids don't use the internet to learn about what's going on in the world, are you kidding?

I was merely suggesting that they might see news feeds somewhere like Yahoo which is fairly kid-friendly since it's got games on it. Obviously small children I'd say ten and under aren't gonna see it at all, but I think if they're over ten they'd start to notice it in some form or another. Besides the internet, in schools they show news in small segments in a special-made daily after lunch time or whatever or my old schools did anyways. Nothing horrifying of course but news. I just cannot image kids not getting news in some form or another because it everywhere now. Or maybe I was an odd child and grew up with too much news on the TV.

Anyways, back on topic I definitely think we need wittier films in today's "let's dumb it down so almost all kids get it" society. I haven't been properly stimulated by a film in probably a decade. I don't even know if I have a sense to think deeper into the movie should something like Inception make the screen again.

Oh dear, in which case they should just go buy their children a Cars model instead and say... Here's a toy, go play with it hmpf...

Pixar news! Courtesy of IGN...

Quote
At Disney's D23 Expo today, John Lasseter announced the two Pixar films set to follow Monsters University, and revealed they are both original concepts.

The first project is produced by John Walker and will be the feature directorial debut of Bob Peterson, who wrote Up and Finding Nemo. The duo announced the project will be focused on dinosaurs and humorously revealed a logo for The Untitled Pixar Movie About Dinosaurs. They promised to have an actual title soon, but in the meantime explained the film follows a "What if?" scenario in which the asteroid that killed the dinosaurs missed the Earth – and thus dinosaurs never went extinct. While there were no more specifics given, including what era the film takes place in, a piece of production art showed what looked to be a the silhouette of a human boy riding a dinosaurs - hinting at a story about a world where humans and dinosaurs co-exist. Coming from Pixar, I'm guessing this will be a much more thoughtful, emotional take on this type of story than The Flintstones.

The second project will be directed by Pete Docter (Up, Monster's Inc.) and what he said about the concept was fairly esoteric – noting it would take viewers "inside your mind," revealing why we can't get things out of our head, why we forget certain things and more. This project also doesn't have a title yet – hence the logo we saw for The Untitled Pixar Movie That Takes You Inside the Mind.

The Pixar dinosaur movie is set for Holiday 2013 and the Mind project is coming summer 2014.

Both of these sound like interesting movies, and I'm particularly interested in this Dinosaur movie. Sure it sounds a bit cliché, but this is Pixar remember, Pixar! I'm sure it'll be awesome (despite the Cars movies)shifty...

Seriously, I like both of these concepts, finally something new and exciting (not interested in Brave, sorry)...

That did cross my mind as well, then I thought about the possibility of dinosaurs in a What-If Futurama scenario, but then I realised they kinda already did that in A Clockwork Origin, albeit with robotic dinosaurs...

i would go for toy story. The graphics are nice! i hope pixar would create a tv series and would be available at online tv such as tvhook.

Welcome to Peel, jenny mate. Is it just coincidence that four of your five posts on Peel so far mention tvhook, and the other one mentions online TV? shifty...

Finding Nemo is my favorite.  I used to have lots of books on tropical fish when I was younger, so I liked knowing which species all the characters were.

I'm in two minds about the dinosaur one.  It would be great if they drafted in the writers and whatnot from Jim Henson's Dinosaurs.   That show was awesome.

I think the dinosaur film sounds fantastic. It has potential to be my favourite Pixar film. I don't think it's a cliched concept at all.

And the film set within the mind also has a lot of potential, especially with Pete Doctor at the helm, but I'm less excited for it.

Yeah these two new projects interest me much more than Brave. In fact the dinosaur one interests me even more than Monsters University and that’s saying a lot! The one set within the mind could be the best Pixar movie ever, or it could fail. The concept at least has a lot of potential and with Pixar at the helm it has a lot of promise too...

As for Brave, well as DannyJC13 says, I guess it does seem a bit Dreamworks-y in concept. It will almost bound to be better than if Dreamworks made the same movie, but that doesn't mean the concept interests me, because quite frankly it doesn't float my boat at all. In fact it's about as exciting a prospect as Cars 2 was hmpf...

I wouldn’t worry, they're just a bit more hit and miss than they used to be. Toy Story 3 was a hit, a very big hit, and by that I don't just mean commercially, I mean it was an amazing movie which was more than worthy of standing up to the originals!...

edit - damn, a n00bs post got deleted and my TOTPD got stolen frown...
