The latest Coco trailer is a symphony of emotions

Coco, Pixar, Trailer

Posted by Joanna • September 13, 2017

As promised, Pixar released their latest trailer for Coco this morning at 9am, and it did not disappoint.

Out of all the trailers so far, this one is the most vibrant, touching, and awe-inspiring. It reveals new plot details but, as ever, only just enough to captivate us while not spoiling the movie. There is a larger focus on music as a plot-point in this trailer, so it’s very fitting that the the music chosen to play during the video is so moving. A cover of “Bittersweet Symphony” plays in the background, its title alone perfectly describing many past Pixar movies. Seeing the stunning visuals and heartwarming character interactions against this choice of music leaves us with no doubt that Coco is soon going to sit very comfortably amongst Pixar’s greats.

Miguel’s dog Dante continues to be incredibly lovable, and it’s great to see how well the characters of Miguel and Hector bounce off of each other.

This is also our first time seeing Pepita in action, and she looks terrifying in all the right ways.

With each new trailer, our excitement for the release of Coco this November 22nd has only grown. We’re really getting the feeling that this movie is going to be special, and we can’t wait.

Brand new international Coco poster + trailer!

Coco, Lee Unkrich, Poster, Trailer

Posted by Simoa • August 7, 2017

Lee Unkrich has shared the newest international poster for Coco on twitter.

More characters are featured; Miguel’s family, both living and dead and his spirit guide, Hector. Our hero is front and center, beaming as he holds Ernesto de la Cruz’s guitar. The poster signals a triumphant moment, as the Rivera family looks at their youngest with pride, although music has been forbidden in the family for generations. This lovely poster comes to us just days after the latest Spanish language trailer was released, which you can watch below.


The central conflict, the Rivera family’s aversion to music, is briefly explored in this trailer, for the first time. We’re also treated to a brief glimpse of Miguel’s abuelita, who wields a powerful shoe (chancla, in this case). Hector, Miguel’s spirit guide in the land of the dead, is also given some lines and has a funny interaction with Miguel, who tries his best to imitate a skeleton walk.

Last weekend, I was lucky enough to visit Pixar and watch the first 35 minutes of the film. Some of that footage was included in this trailer, which is the best one so far.

Check back here for more Coco updates and some special posts all about the Pixar screening and more!

Get connected to the newest Coco trailer!

Coco, Trailer

Posted by Simoa • June 7, 2017

“No living person has ever visited their world. Until now.”

This is the story of young Miguel, who journeys to the land of the dead in Lee Unkrich’s Coco. The newest trailer for the film debuted today, and in Pixar’s usual custom, packs a lot of story and detail in less than two minutes. Although new information hasn’t been revealed and some earlier footage is recycled, we are treated to a glimpse of Miguel’s family and a possible connection to his singing idol, Ernesto De La Cruz.

The gags in the trailer are fairly typical, but Pixar usually saves the juiciest and funniest moments for later ones. So we can expect tons of new character appearances (like Miguel’s guide in the spirit world, Hector) closer to the release date. As always, the world of Coco looks to be one of Pixar’s most ambitious and immersive yet! The sets created for the land of the dead are simply breathtaking.

We’ll be eagerly awaiting more photos, posters, and trailers as Coco‘s November 22nd release date draws near.

New Cars 3 trailer: “Rivalry”

Cars 3, Trailer

Posted by Joanna • May 10, 2017

In the new trailer for Cars 3 that was released today, a larger focus is put on Lightning McQueen’s new ‘rival’ – Jackson Storm.

High-tech, competitive, and – most importantly – fast, Jackson Storm represents the ‘new generation’ of cars that is threatening Lightning’s career, overtaking him on the racetrack, and overshadowing him in the public eye. Once “faster than fast, quicker than quick”, Lightning isn’t used to being left behind, but he’s not ready to give up just yet.

“I decide when I’m done.”

This trailer is just as gritty and tense as the last, but exhibits more of the great humour that Pixar always pulls off so well. It also showcases some of the beautiful scenery we’re familiar with from the original Cars, in addition to new stunning backdrops. Revisiting these characters and settings again, it’s amazing to see how far the technology has come. Lightning, on the other hand, is much less excited by this prospect of ‘new technology’…

Cars 3 will be released in US theatres June 16th!

Don’t fear failure: newest Cars 3 trailer

Cars 3, Trailer

Posted by Simoa • April 26, 2017

The latest trailer for Cars 3 debuted today, and it is spectacular! We’ve come to expect only heart pounding thrills with each new teaser, along with the central conflict.

 

Perhaps as a nod to all the Cars merchandise out there, this trailer opens with various Lightning McQueen branded products. As a sleek silver car informs him, his legacy is under threat with each new accident Lightning suffers in his races. The question of retirement ever looms.

But as we know, Lightning McQueen refuses to retire. This is where Cruz Ramirez comes in. She’s his trainer and is determined to help him recapture some of that former glory. Meanwhile, rookie racer Jackson Storm acquires more wins and more time in the spotlight. It’s clear he poses another threat to the McQueen legacy. Lightning will never be as fast, but he can outsmart Jackson.

Cruz also tells him something that will define his journey and the film.

“Don’t fear failure. Be afraid of not having the chance.”

On June 16th, we’ll finally watch Lightning McQueen take his big chance!

Watch The First Teaser Trailer for Coco!

Coco, Lee Unkrich, Trailer

Posted by Nia • March 15, 2017

It’s here! Pixar’s love letter to Mexico! Today the studio released the first of many trailers for their upcoming Day of the Dead inspired film Coco. It is certainly fantastic being able to see these characters we’ve merely read about for months finally breathing with life.

From the first few seconds of the footage alone, it’s obvious this film is going to be spectacular in terms of character design, color, setting, and music.

We instantly bond with Miguel, a young aspiring guitarist, as he lights candles in remembrance for Ernesto de la Cruz, a famous Mexican actor and musician. It’s even later hinted that the famous personality might be Miguel’s father – which is fitting because it’s obvious Miguel has a natural talent after he mimics Cruz’s notes on the guitar.

In the trailer, we see how Miguel reaches the Land of the Dead and what this new world and characters within it will look like. We also get to see Dante, the Xolo dog, in action there – as playful as ever as he rolls around a bridge that appears to be constructed out of flower petals.

Suffice to say, we want more and can’t wait until the film is released on November 22nd.

P.S. We need to hear more of Ernesto de la Cruz’s music!!!

Ka-chow! Latest teaser for Cars 3 debuts.

Cars 3, Trailer

Posted by Simoa • November 21, 2016

If you’ve got a case of the Mondays, prepare for a dose of Cars 3 to jolt you wide awake! The newest teaser was released today and it packs thrills in less than 50 seconds.

Tonally, this teaser switches gears. It’s a much more somber preview of the Cars franchise. This clip might not quell the mostly unenthusiastic response to the third installment, but it’s an outstanding teaser and fans will definitely not be disappointed.

The teaser ends on a breathtaking shot of a slow motion crash that sends Lightning McQueen careening into the air. It’s a beautiful shot, one that deserves to be paused over and highlights the visual brilliance of Cars that is so often dismissed or unacknowledged. While some were shocked by Lightning’s fate, it does offer a clue about the film’s plot which was announced in May of this year. Director Brian Fee remarked that Lightning is now past his prime compared to the rookies who have now emerged onto the racing scene. Is this crash in the teaser further confirmation of Lightning McQueen’s “need to adapt”?

We’ll be looking forward to the answer and plenty more.

Cars 3 hits theaters on June 16, 2017.

Found Dory!: latest trailer makes a splash

Finding Dory, Trailer

Posted by Simoa • May 25, 2016

Finding Dory is less than a month away, and the latest and final trailer premiered yesterday on the Ellen DeGeneres show.

Key plot points have been revealed but the overall story remains shrouded in guess work. All we can do is speculate until the movie is released. In a scene that mirrors Finding Nemo, Dory is scooped up out of the ocean by humans on a boat, leaving Marlin frantic as he tries to track the boat down in vain. This time he’s accompanied by Nemo. Unlike P. Sherman in the first film, these people attempted to rescue Dory after she was caught in a chain of plastic soda rings. Could there be more commentary on this environmental hazard? We hope so.

The trailer opens with Dory as a child looking for her parents. Then it transitions to present day Dory also seeking help from other fish. This sets a somber tone, highlighting the loneliness and isolation the blue tang has felt throughout her life. But the somber moments are balanced with levity, particularly from the supporting cast which includes Hank the octopus (Ed O’Neill), Bailey the beluga whale (Ty Burrell), and one very distinctively voiced seal (Idris Elba). There’s also Marlin’s trademark dry wit to look forward to!

Much of the lighting and atmosphere is subdued and dark, matching the gloomier aspects of the story. The ocean is teeming with even more life and looks to be as gorgeous, if not more so, than Finding Nemo. Shots above water also showcase some stunning scenery.

Marlin and Nemo search for Dory while she searches for clues about her past. It’s an intriguing concept and one that promises to deliver, as evidenced by this trailer.

Dive Right In To The First Full Length Finding Dory Trailer!

Andrew Stanton, Angus Maclane, Finding Dory, Finding Nemo, Trailer

Posted by Nia • March 2, 2016

Today everyone was swimming with excitement to finally watch a full length trailer for Pixar’s new film Finding Dory. Some fans have even been waiting for this miraculous moment since the first film was released in theaters way back in 2003. If you haven’t watched the trailer yet, check it out below. If you already have, why not re-watch it for the 46327th time? (Just kidding, I’ve only watched it about 2049 times since it launched this morning)

We’ve got some fantastic familiar faces to greet us at the start of the trailer, like our good friend Mr. Ray, but we’re soon thrown into a new adventure. As we already know, Dory is on the search for her family. After Mr. Ray’s speech about instinct triggers old family memories for Dory, she soon becomes motivated to risk everything to find them again. In the trailer, we also spend some time in the aquarium that Dory stumbles upon in her quest. Dory is surprisingly re-united with a long lost Whale Shark pal named Destiny. Come to find out, Dory has hung out with Destiny on many occasions… it’s just that she can’t remember anything they’ve talked about. We’re also finally introduced to Hank the Octopus. Though skittish at first and hiding under sand in a fish tank, there’s a lot to love about him. I think Hank may already be my new favorite character from the sequel. It’s hard not to appreciate his camouflaged skit at the end and his near demise with the garbage disposal.

The underwater world we’re revisiting is filled with even more life and color than in Finding Nemo. One can only imagine how stunning the reef and new locations will look on the big screen come June. It’s also important to wonder just what kind of new technology we’ll see utilized to create all of the backgrounds? I almost want to do a before and after side-by-side comparison to fully grasp the overall quality upgrade to the look of Finding Dory.

I truly can’t wait to see Dory go through a journey of her own to find her family and what new things she’ll discover about herself along the way. Here’s to finally meeting her parents!

Brand New Finding Dory Teaser Trailer Released

Andrew Stanton, Angus Maclane, Finding Dory, Trailer

Posted by Nia • February 28, 2016

On Friday Disney/Pixar released a fun little teaser trailer for their upcoming film Finding Dory.

In the trailer we get to see Dory as her usual forgetful self as she jokingly reads the title of the film. The catchy tune by the Chi-lites, “Have You Seen Her,” plays on in the distance as she swims out of frame. The teaser is a precursor to the theatrical trailer that will be released on Wednesday, March 2nd on the Ellen DeGeneres show. Fittingly enough it was on Ellen herself who released the amazing news that Finding Dory was coming to theaters. Up until now we’ve only seen brief glimpses of Dory, Marlin, and Nemo (in addition to a few new faces), so it will be quite exciting to see some different footage on Wednesday. Be sure to check back in with us then when the trailer is released!
