This is pretty much the extent of what we know about Pixar’s non-Cars 3 related film of 2017. What it has immediately in its favor….is that it is not part of the Cars franchise (for those new to the blog, I am covering Cars 3 the way any sort of media is covering the current presidential administration: there’s hyperbole, lots of facial redness, and there’s a truck involved). It’s a part of my continuing healing process from having had to watch Cars 2. I don’t let go of things easily.
From the trailer, it kind of seems like Ratatouille if the rat was a kid and instead of wanting to cook, he wanted to rock…..in the City of the Dead. It ALSO has going for it, being the first film directed by Lee Unkrich since he made all of male America cry with Toy Story 3, so it is my expert opinion as a person who writes a little-read blog on moviedom….that this is your Pixar film to back this year. Coco opens October 30, 2017.
Jack is back on May 5th and this latest trailer and the official synopsis below grant a little more insight into why Bauer is being brought back for half of another of the worst days of his life. For that matter, why are we calling it 24 when it’s really 12 this time?
If you’re not caught up on 24, all eight seasons are available for streaming on Netflix and that is a whole lot of Jack. The best season was always and will always be the first, when the concept was novel and before we took a lot of time to notice no one ever went to the bathroom or ate. The show did a great job at constantly re-inventing itself and changing the status quo to keep viewers invested. Often seasons collapsed under the weight of having to do 24 episodes worth of plot twists and some just got nuts. Season two with Kim, the cougar and crazy mountain hermit is still my benchmark for bad subplot in a good show. Continue reading Trailer Time : 24 Live Another Day (2014)
