New trailers for 'Tomorrowland' and 'Inside Out' highlight Disney's summer slate

As long predicted by box office pundits, 2015 will likely be the biggest box office year in Hollywood history. We already saw the massive successes of American Sniper, Fifty Shades of Grey and Kingsman and the rest of Spring should also feature some major box office hits. Each studio seems to be getting in on the action, but the undeniable fact is that Disney is going to totally clean up this year. Cinderella is going to do strong business this weekend, and Avengers: Age of Ultron and Star Wars: The Force Awakens will break all kinds of box office records. But Disney's reign will not end there. The studio will also be releasing Tomorrowland, the new Brad Bird sci-fi flick, and Inside Out, the latest original film from Pixar. Both films received new trailers earlier this week (presumably to premiere with Cinderella). Check the first full-length trailer out for Tomorrowland below:

Tomorrowland was always one of my most anticipated movies of the year, but unfortunately, this trailer did nearly nothing for me. The movie still looks good, but the trailer did not take my anticipation to the level that I had hoped for. George Clooney and Britt Robertson look solid but Hugh Laurie's villain seems like it could go either way. The film's marketing just hasn't done it for me so far. However, I trust Brad Bird and I'm hopeful that he can deliver a spectacular final product. Tomorrowland hits theaters on May 22. Now, check out the trailer for Inside Out, Pixar's latest original offering:

This is a movie that I am very excited for. Pixar hasn't made a great movie since Toy Story 3 and this seems like a return to that kind of innovative, emotional style of filmmaking. Pixar has always been at their best when they're creating new characters and new worlds and that's what Inside Out is looking like to me. The voice cast seems to have done a great job and I'm just very intrigued by the film's concept. Inside Out hits theaters on June 19.
