Finding Dory

Trailer Time: Finding Dory Trailer #3 (2016) *Just Keep Swimming…*

Finding Dory is nearly upon us.  Disney, which I’m pretty sure is going to take a rare bath on Alice Through the Looking-Glass, will regain its creepy death grip on the top of the box office with Pixar’s sequel to Finding Nemo.  Dory has recalled she has a family and sets off with her clown fish accomplices to find them.  Hijinks ensue.  I really am rooting for this.  The Good Dinosaur was so awful that I need a Pixar home run to get back on their side (especially since Cars 3 is looming).  Andrew Stanton has never made a bad animated film, and Ellen DeGeneres’ Dory is one of my three favorite Pixar characters so I’ll be there when the film opens June 17, 2016.

  1. As long as it retains the very adult mindset it will be ok. FN was the first Pixar film about an actual adult instead of a childlike adult.

    I don’t think a bath is coming this weekend, because the first Alice was I believe the third biggest mouse house film of all time. But while this new one looks like a superlative visual spectacle, I will shed no tears if you are right and I am wrong. Burton and company should have stuck close to the books.


    1. The first one opened in March unopposed with pretty decent reviews. Xmen is review proof opening weekend and there’s just zero buzz around Alice.


      1. Don’t forget that it was one of the very first 3D movies. I had forgotten it opened in March. And I fear that Burton is joining Depp in Box Office Poison Land. I know he did not direct this, but marketing is playing up his involvement.

        I still think it might do ok. There was not much buzz before the first one. Or during its run or after it for that matter. It’s almost a transformers situation, where no one wants to admit they liked it, and still a billion dollars. We shall see.


      2. It’s possible I’m being swayed by my own bias. Alice looks so much better than Apocalypse, though neither of them look like they’re going to be masterpieces, to put it mildly.


      3. Yeah, I don’t know that I’m going to see Alice, but I will see X-Men and I’m kind of dreading it. I need to see The Nice Guys before it leaves theaters.
