Despite delivering their first original property in two years this week with the disappointing Brave, Pixar are going back to the well again next summer, with a prequel to their hit Monsters, Inc. Dan Scanlon is directing Monsters University, which sees Mike and Sulley back at college learning the ropes of the job we already know they excel at. The studio has debuted four slightly different teasers today, which give us little hint at the plot, only that pranks will occur. They don’t do much for me, but I sincerely hope this film breaks the Pixar slump. Check them out below, featuring voice acting from Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Steve Buscemi, Dave Foley, Julia Sweeney, Joel Murray and Peter Sohn.

Monsters University arrives on June 21, 2013.

In theaters now, Ivan Reitman‘s new film, Draft Day, does quite a bit with a hard subject. Part of that is the writing, but a lot of the success on screen is due to the amassing of talent Reitman manages and the flash he implants into ordinary scenes. The life of a GM during a tumultuous and pressure-packed [...]
