Why don't you just tell me the name of the movie?
Trailer: Pixar’s Monsters University - June 21
Directed by Dan Scanlon, with the voices of Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Ken Jeong, Kelsey Grammer, Rob Riggle, and Julia Sweeney.
While Pixar’s track record with sequels is inconsistent, one could argue that the source material here is a lot better than it was for ‘Cars 2’. ‘Monsters University’, on the other hand, is a prequel which leads to its own set of issues (in that we already know how the story ends). The spot itself is clever and funny though, so there’s no reason to doubt this will be a success.
Oh, and one more thing: Crystal reportedly gave them so much material that they cut 4 versions of the trailer, so click through to the source link if you want to watch them all.

The first official trailer for Judd Apatow’s This Is 40
Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann are back, reprising their roles from 2007’s Knocked Up, and facing bit of a mid life crisis of sorts. Jason Segal and Apatow’s daughters: Maude and Iris are also back.
Part of me hopes that This Is 40 embodies the same spirit as Francois Truffaut’s Antoine Doinel films. Not necessarily a direct sequel, but finding out what happened to these characters after a certain period of time. I wish more filmmakers would do this. I remember seeing an interview with Cameron Crowe right around the release of Almost Famous and he declared that William Miller was his Doinel, but Crowe hasn’t made a second William Miller film yet and doesn’t seem likely. I would love to see where the characters from Juno are now; it doesn’t have a direct sequel, but the same characters in a slightly different situation.
At the same time, This Is 40 feels like it could be another edition of Judd Apatow’s home movies. I’m sure Apatow and his family are a lovely set of people and his friends are a total blast, but when I go to the movies, I want to see a movie. I don’t want to see a family having fun. The family fun didn’t translate in Funny People. Hopefully, three editors will be able to reign Apatow in. Fingers crossed that This is 40 runs under two hours.
All of my THIS!
