I recommend watching the trailers in order, because Pixar is building up to something quite unusual I would think. A lead character that does not talk. Nice.
I’m also enjoying how the early trailers for Wall*E and The Bee Movie employ the song Brazil. It’s interesting because the song is now so completely linked in my mind with comic dystopian nightmares thanks to Terry Gilliam’s fabulous film and not with a large South American country at all. It certainly doesn’t make me think of the samba.
Gilliam is, of course, the only American to produce a movie that deals with time travel in a sensible manner. It doesn’t go well but is one of my favourite films.
