‘The Good Dinosaur’ International TV Spot Gives Pixar’s Dinos Some Voices

The Good Dinosaur

Of all the The Good Dinosaur trailers that we have seen so far, none of them had any dialogue. While the film touts an eclectic cast, some began to wonder if Pixar’s upcoming feature would be like Wall-E. During their panel at D23 Expo, we finally got to hear some of the film’s voicework through a series of clips, and hear what Sam Elliot, Anna Paquin, and AJ Buckley sounded like as Pixarized T-Rexes. However, if you didn’t get a chance to see the footage a month ago, a newly released international TV spot offers you the chance to hear some of the talent at work, and provides some context as to how Arlo (Raymond Ochoa) gets separated from his pack.

Check out the latest TV spot for The Good Dinosaur here below.

The Good Dinosaur

The first Pixar film to be presented at Disney’s D23 Expo on Friday during the studio’s portion of the animation panel was The Good Dinosaur. Peter Sohn (Partly Cloudy) makes his feature directing debut on Pixar’s first prehistoric film about Arlo, an apatosaurus who becomes separated from his family, and sets off on a journey that will make him grow stronger physically and as a dinosaur.

In The Good Dinosaur, our lead character Arlo is not as strong as his dinosaur siblings, drawing his strength from his father. Unfortunately, his father passes on, and we learn that Arlo eventually becomes separated from his family. The clip that was shown reveals the treacherous waters that nearly drown him. Luckily, he is able to be washed ashore, where he eventually comes across a human named Spot.

The Good Dinosaur

The first trailer for The Good Dinosaur gave us a small tease of what’s to come from Pixar’s latest, revealing only a tiny portion of the plot and lacking any dialogue. Though it did give us a look at the gorgeous North American-inspired landscape the animators created just for the film.

Now Disney has released a full theatrical trailer for the film, which reveals a more detailed plot, and the relationship between Arlo, the dino-sized protagonist of the film, and his friend, Spot, a tiny fearless human boy. Check the trailer and a newly released image out below.

‘True Blood’: Farewell Bon Temps, Grab A Tru Blood For The Road

True Blood Headstone Banner

Did Tony Soprano get taken out when the screen went black? Were the Losties in Purgatory all along? Finales never satisfy everybody, and lines are usually drawn one minute after a series ends.

So how did the True Blood finale measure up?

Warning! Spoiler Alert!

Well it was certainly different from the usual episodes. Whereas one can usually count on gratuitous violence, nudity, and ridiculous lines like, “You just killed my fairy godmother!”, the series finale was much tamer and somber, emphasized by sad string music. The music set the pace and was appropriate for the gravity of Sookie’s (Anna Paquin) decision about Bill (Stephen Moyer). Bill is maudlin and feeling his humanity. He wants the true death even though the cure for Hep-V had been offered and subsequently rejected by him. He wants Sookie to end him with her fairy light ball, so that she can lead a normal life with babies. He believes that as long as he is alive, Sookie will always come back to him. That’s kinda arrogant, but he is probably right. While many may disagree, Bill was falling right in line with his character: brooding, guilt-stricken, and martyr-like. This is not including when Bill was evil and much more fun during the Authority storyline. Sad, guilty Bill made me want to kill him. I’ve always been more Team Eric though.

I Wanna Do Bad Things With You: A Look Back At ‘True Blood’s Villains

True Blood Villains Banner

True Blood, that campy vampire HBO series based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris set in fictional Bon Temps, Louisiana, came to an end last night, Sunday, August 24th, with Season 7 Episode 10 finale “Thank You.” The series revolves around telepath Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) and her supernatural (and non) lovers, relatives, and friends.

No good vampire/werewolf/fairy/shapeshifter/medium/witch show would be complete without a formidable foe (or foes) for the plucky heroes and heroines to stand against. Some were silly, some were horrifying, some were lunatics, some were the heroes and heroines themselves, and some deserved their own late night Cinemax show, but they all had the common thread of being thoroughly entertaining. Sookie and her posse always prevailed (with some casualties). But, it’s all come to an end now, so it’s time to take a look back at the Villains from each season.

What’s Next For Our Favorite ‘True Blood’ Cast Members?

True Blood Season 7 Cast Banner

True Blood is meeting the true death tonight. While some of the cast members had managed to work on higher profile projects in between seasons (Joe Manganiello in Magic Mike; Alexander Skarsgard in Straw Dogs; Anna Paquin in X-Men: Days of Future Past), some of the cast did little else, choosing to hone their True Blood character (or enjoy their time off — I know I would). Still…we always had the comfort of knowing that come Summer, we could still catch Sookie and the gang jump from one bloody predicament to another.

But alas…everything must come to an end eventually, especially if it is as frivolously fun as True Blood. That doesn’t mean we won’t be able to see our faves act, direct, produce, and even write other films and television shows, right? So what can we look forward to? Here’s a look at what’s next for some of our favorite True Blood cast members.

Anna Paquin’s ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’ Cameo As Rogue Reinstated To The Final Cut

Rogue

Back in December the Movie God reported that Anna Paquin‘s brief appearance as Rogue in next month’s mutant-packed mega-sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past had become an occupant of the cutting room floor. According to director Bryan Singer at the time it was an “embarrassment of riches” situation and while it was a “really good sequence” it simply had to go.

Singer’s comments seemed to signal the end of the matter, until Paquin’s name appeared in the credits at the end of the new trailer for Days of Future Past that was released on Tuesday evening. I watched that trailer twice and couldn’t spot the presence of Rogue at any time unless it was a “blink and you’ll miss it” moment. According to a representative at 20th Century Fox Paquin’s role has now been recovered from the unforgiving territory of future Blu-ray supplements and reinstated to the cut of Future Past that will be released theatrically, but in a slightly reduced form.
