WATCH: ‘Inside Out’ Trailer from Russia Features a Whole Lotta Bing Bong

Pixar's Inside OutOur bad. We saw that Walt Disney Studios Russia had released a new trailer for Pixar’s Inside Out (June 17, 2015) yesterday, but judging by the first half of it, it looked exactly like the Spanish trailer, but boy were we wrong. Now that Bing Bong — who still isn’t officially unannounced — is available as a plush from Disney Store — not to mention fruit snacks — other countries don’t appear to mind sharing him. While the dialogue is no Richard Kind (or English), at least we can get a good visual instead of the glimpses in previous domestic promos.

WATCH: ‘Tomorrowland’ Behind-the-Scenes Footage (Minor Spoilers)

'Tomorrowland' Theatrical PosterWalt Disney Studios has presented us with just about 10 minutes of behind-the-scenes ‘b-roll’ footage from Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland (May 22, 2015), which you can find embedded below. The bad news is with so many small segments/quick cuts, the footage is probably best enjoyed by a cat. The good news is that despite not seeing much of each segment, there’s actually some pretty good stuff to be found within it, including a nod that Athena isn’t the only one with a non-aging problem. Towards the end, there’s also quite a bit of the recording sessions for the score by Michael Giacchino.

WATCH: Japan’s Spoiler-Filled ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Trailer Will Have You Begging for More

'Avengers: Age of Ultron' Theatrical PosterWalt Disney Studios Japan’s movie trailers have always managed to deviate from the ‘norm.’ They tend to feature different footage — often including spoilers, which would be considered taboo in other countries — and are edited to create an emotional story, rather than just splashy glimpses of various, unrelated scenes. Perhaps never has this been demonstrated more in this trailer for Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron which touches upon just every moment in the film that had audiences gasping. To put it mildly, if you have not seen the film yet, we do not advise you watch the trailer below. Unless you are a diehard Hawkeye fan that is.
