Pixar just unveiled a new trailer for its upcoming "Monsters, Inc" prequel, called "Monsters University," showing lots of new footage from the movie. Check it out below.
"Monsters University" goes back in time to tell the story of how Mike (Billy Crystal) and Sully (John Goodman) met in college and their rocky roots, which led to them ultimately becoming the best of friends.
The film co-stars Steve Buscemi, Dave Foley, Julia Sweeney, Joel Murray and Peter Sohn, and is set to hit theaters on June 21st.

I'm so cynical, yes, but what Disney has don't to Pixar, what they're going to do to Star Wars, and what they're trying to do to Marvel, makes me physically ill. I absolutely hate that abominable company.
As for this, f*ck off; it was all cute and admirable when I didn't know Disney had their pimp hooks in Pixar.

'Trying' to do to Marvel? I think the damage is already done there too, Mink. I would even go so far as to suggest that the Marvel franchises are far more Disney-fied than anything Pixar has offered up since their aquisition. Pixar has always claimed a fair degree of autonomy from Disney, and it helps that Lassiter is the HNIC overseeing all of Disney animation. I doubt Kevin Feige has that level of power.
Still, I will say this- my initial reaction to this trailer was 'hey, that looks kinda cute and fun.' But then I thought about it for a moment, and now it just makes me sad. Pixar used to really push the envelope of animation technology while delivering great stories... and I see neither in this film. It's just a cash grab, that's all. I would rather they try something new and stumble (ala 'Brave'- admirable yet overall a miss) than pump out turds like this.

Sorry, mustard, I didn't mean to poison you with my cynicism. You're an alright guy, and I've said I admire you for the sh*t you do in the biz. Hell, envy you. I've said that too.* So don't let my negativity f*ck up how you feel about Pixar's films, which are often admirably well done, visually, but this sh*t just looks like Pixar has become an assembly line of CG flicks with Disney controlling the switch and that pissed me off because I once thought the world of Pixar.
*no d*cksucking intended, unless you know Kate Upton.

Alas, I wish I knew Kate Upton. My day job is still at 'Dancing with the Stars,' which is admittedly a completely retarded show (that thankfully pays my bills) but it does have the added benefit of putting me in proximity of some fairly hot ladies. Maybe she'll do the show sometime soon, hell, anythings possible. If she does, I'll save you a seat for a show and you can grab her panties as she Foxtrots by. LOL
