Will somebody please tell me how the Sam Hill to spell Wall*E? Wall*e? Wall-E? Wall-e?
Whatever, the new trailer is up, and it drops all that coy stuff from the teasers and plunges us deep into the Wall*everse, which is a lot bigger and richer than I first thought. We meet Wall*E’s probe-android luvva, who appears to have been designed by Jonny Ive, and get a look at what’s left of human civilization in deep space. There’s still a lot of kidsy cuteness going on, and that vaguely English voice-over dude is way punchable, but overall it looks gorgeous — the physics is bouncy and crisp, the animation realistic where you want it to be and cartoony where you want it to be. My hopes are raised.
Also on tap: the trailer for Lost Boys 2: The Tribe, with Corey Feldman reprising his role as Edgar Frog:
It doesn’t really look that bad. I mean, I know it will be that bad? But it doesn’t look that bad.
