Pixar’s New ‘Inside Out’ Teaser Is Really a Reminder of Why Pixar Rules

Pixar’s last movie was Monsters University. “Where’s their by-now annual film?!” you ask? NOWHERE. There is no 2014 Pixar movie. So, in case you’ve forgotten what Pixar is during this long, magic-less year, check out this teaser for Inside Out, “the emotions movie,” due June 19, 2015. (In case you want to put it in your calendar right now, which I totally get.) It stars the voices of Amy Poehler, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, and maybe did I hear Patton Oswalt? Inside Out will be followed by November 2015’s The Good Dinosaur, the first time Pixar’s ever released two features inside a year. (And they’ll do it again in 2017.)

New Gambinooooo. (Donald Glover has a new mixtape; it’s a [stunning, and yeah I already played it five times today] two-parter called STN MTN / KAUAI.)

And here’s actor J.K. Simmons on Terminator: Dionysus Genisys: “It’s a gigantic movie and that was such a surprise when they sent that to me and asked me to do it. I thought ‘Well, obviously it’s a gigantic movie and on that level, it’s something most actors would want to be a part of, but is it just going to be the formulaic yadda-yadda-yadda then cut to the stuff blowing up?’ But I found the script to be really much more intelligent and fun and funny and well-rounded and heart-felt. It’s a love story. It’s a really interesting script. They got great actors.”
