It may be the first time that a Disney•Pixar film didn’t open at #1 at the box office, but it still did $90,440,272 – good for the studio’s best non-Toy Story opening ever (beating, along the way, a little movie called Avatar…).
After commercial hits like Cars, Cars 2, and Monsters University – which did not yield unwavering critical acclaim – it is wonderful to note that Inside Out is a multi-layered, exquisitely rendered film that ranks right up there with WALL-E and UP.
The idea for Inside Out is that we are looking at a year in the life of eleven-year old Riley (voiced by Kaitlyn Dias) as seen from inside her mind, where her emotions take on somewhat familiar forms and interact like any group of friends – with love but also lots of ups and downs.
Disney•Pixar’s Inside Out will have its world premiere during the 68th annual Cannes Film Festival. It will be the first animated film ever to be the Festival’s Opening Ceremony film. For more, follow the jump.
Things are tough for Riley – her family has moved to San Francisco and she doesn’t know anyone at school. Her dad is preoccupied with the new job and her mom is still getting things settled in their new home. Small wonder that she’s struggling a bit.
Inside Out is the story of Riley’s emotions – Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust and Fear – and how they react to this new chapter of her life.
Check out the new trailer for Inside Out following the jump. Inside Out will be in theaters on June 19th.
