Monsters University UK Trailer

Although Pixar is taking a lot of flack for churning out sequels as of late, I have to admit that I’m really looking forward to Monsters University. It looks like a potential return to form for the once invincible studio after a couple of disappointing outings with Brave and Cars 2. Even without Pete Docter at the helm, the movie seems to be in good hands and the premise feels inspired.

This week a new UK trailer has hit the web with plenty of new scenes that highlight the clever sense of humour and relatable stories that we’ve come to expect from Pixar. There is also a new Extended Preview that was released online over the weekend with some insight from director Dan Scanlon. It all looks very promising indeed. Monsters University hits theatres on June 21st; check out the new trailers after the jump and let us know what you think.

Around the Web:

  • La Menthe

    This looks mediocre, and is probably going to turn out like the rest of Pixar’s disappointing films.

    Pixar’s cherished days are over. It ended after Ratatouille.

    I think you got your dates mixed up there, mate. Wall-E was the last good original Pixar movie.

  • La Menthe

    Ratatouille was great and captured the enchanting atmosphere of the world Pixar created perfectly. It’s atmosphere reminded me of the animation films and series I watched as a kid.
    Wall-E, and to some extent Up, were also good in their own way. But there were too many negative aspects with both of the films for me to really appreciate them.

    I’ve never really been a great fan of Pixar. The only films I like is Ratatouille, Toy Story and Finding Nemo (without a doubt their best film). The rest just feels mediocre or plain bad. But I guess it’s my own fault, when I go from watching amazing Studio Ghibili masterpieces like Valley in the Wind or Howl’s Moving Castle by Miyazaki — that have a lot of heart, depth, visual radiance and emotion — to candy-like colorful CGI-artifacts from Hollywood.
