The Trailer For 'Big Hero Six' Proves That Heroes Don't Need To Be Human

If you like inflatable robots, this is THE film for you. It's hard to describe the vibe of Big Hero Six with the written word. But about ten seconds in to the trailer, you'll get it. While Marvel went live-action with The Avengers, Disney and Marvel teamed up to give us an animated Big Hero Six that has a look very similar to Ratatouille, which should be just fine with Pixar fans. The Big Hero Six originally were a decidedly Japanese-inspired group of superheroes, but in this trailer, they take on a cartoonish American quality. Maybe it's because they're characters in an American cartoon. We'll never know for sure. If you prefer your comic book characters with a side of goofiness and fun, check out this trailer.

The Trailer For Disney's Upcoming 'Big Hero Six' Looks Pretty Outstanding

Disney and Marvel...keep an eye on these companies. I think they're gonna be big. Disney hasn't gotten near the acclaim that Pixar has since the two companies split, but Disney hasn't exactly been sitting on their hands, and that's perhaps most clear with the upcoming Big Hero Six, which takes a fascinating animation approach and couples it with some characters that are likable and pretty damn funny. Anyone familiar with Big Hero Six, or it's last trailer, knows that Beymax, the giant white blob robot, is the star of the show. But this trailer focuses a little more on Hiro, the human protagonist. And while he's not as funny, he lends an emotional anchor to the movie the way we see in Pixar's best. Take a look.


'Heroes Reborn' Trailer Tries To Get It Right This Time

Fingers crossed. NBC is eager to recapture some of their mid-2000's heat by rebooting Heroes, and adding Chuck for good measure. Heroes Reborn reunites members of the original cast while adding newer characters for an update on where the characters are after the loose threads left dangling from the original show's cliffhanger ending. In present day, those with superpowers are either dead or in hiding or pointing their open palms at things and concentrating really hard. There are a lot of nods for fans of the original here and it looks like it could be fun for them if the show's creators learned from their earlier mistakes.


'Big Hero 6' Gets Given The 'Unnecessary Censorship' Treatment

Why are they so vulgar? The thing about Disney movies is that they're rarely edgy. Which makes them unrealistic. In real life, people swear and say terrible things. In order to reflect THAT reality, Kyle J. Britt has given the unnecessary censorship treatment to the superhero film Big Hero 6. And we learn that Beymax is kind of vulgar, as are most inflatable balloon men. (In my own personal experience. I don't want to generalize.) Britt has done this work-up before on movies like The Amazing Spider-Man and Frozen. I guess it was just a matter of time before he took to a film that was still in the theaters. (A.V. Club)


NBC Taking Another Crack At It With 'Heroes: Reborn' Trailer

Here's hoping things go better this time. Just as they did with Paul Reiser and Michael J. Fox, NBC is hoping to cash in on the name recognition of a once-successful series. Thus, we have the trailer for Heroes: Yeah But Do You Like It Now? The original series headed quickly downhill after a string of good episodes, before stalling out when characters became played out before talent contracts did. But this new Heroes promises to be different while looking exactly the same. Ordinary people develop extraordinary powers while strange symbols that ultimately mean nothing appear all over the world. Hiro is back too. He's used his ability to travel through time to grow a soul patch.


Nerd Bodies Hit The Floor In 'Nerd Machine: Trailer Park Heroes Part One'

Hot chicks, blood, and violence. Just in time for Comic-Con. When Comic-Con nerds go totally crazy and begin eating people, there's only one group that can stop them -- Joel David Moore, Aly Michalka, Jason Biggs, and the cast of Chuck. That's the premise behind Nerd Machine's Trailer Park Heroes, which blends gore, Shaun of the Dead-style gallows humor, aly Michalka's tight stomach muscles, and Jason Bigg's fighting Wolverine. It's the horror-comedy that Comic-Con has been waiting for. Stay tuned for more installments...


New Trailer For 'American Horror Story: Coven'

What are the odds that some of them are sexy? Rather than get those cryptic teasers that give us a clown crying, or a woman who may or may not have had a baby cut out of her, we get a little more clarity from this AHS trailer. In addition to sliding the setting over to New Orleans (because Anne Rice and True Blood were sorta on to something with that bayou vibe), we find out that the coven is a coven...OF WITCHES. Hmm. More intuitive fans may have pieced that together. The videos appear to play successively automatically, but in the event I somehow screwed that up, watch them over at the A.V. Club, but promise you'll come right back to our site after you do.
