If Christopher Nolan directed Wall-E, A mashup trailer


When Disney’s Big Hero 6 opens on November 7th, it’s going to have some big competition from the latest Christopher Nolan film – Interstellar, which opens on the 5th. Pre-saging that encounter a little bit, video mashup artist Bobby Burns has created a new trailer for Pixar’s Wall-E as if it were a film by Christopher Nolan.

Brave – Sound Documentary and more Pictures

If you haven’t yet seen Pixar’s Brave you definitely need to make an effort to get to a theater this weekend and take it in. It’s not just the story and characters who are compelling, but it’s the beautiful artistry that helps make the film.

A new 12 minute video talks about how Pixar totally rewrote their software to allow for a new more detailed sound mix than ever before. Interviewed are Director Mark Andrews, Re-recording Mixer and Sound Designer Gary Rydstrom, Supervising Sound Editor Gwen Yates Whittle, and Sound Designer E.J. Holowicki.

Pixar also released a few new photos from the movie. There’s the new image of The Witch up at the top there, and two more below the jump:
