    (1) a teaser trailer tells you nothing about the movie. The goal is to start the hype machine and then later when finished footage is ready, they set the hook in your lip with the real trailer.
    (2) the music isn't from evita, it could possibly be Aquarela do Brasil, a 1939 samba covered by many people and found in many places including the movie Brazil.

    Need I remind you that the teaser trailer for the Incredibles featured the main title from On Her Majesty's Secret Service? Or how many trailers manage to reuse the stirring music from Rudy?

    I know the hook is in my lip...

    Opinions are like mothers, everyone has one.....

    I liked the trailer, but was hoping for a bit more animation, so I could get a better sense of the characters involved. Soundtrack doesn't bother me unless it gets in the way of the story.

    BTW - small point, but I loved The Incredibles EXACTLY BECAUSE the soundtrack was so much like the early James Bond movies. Thought it was clever and it added so much to that movie's theme.

Only about 15 seconds has to do with Wall-E and only 4 of those seconds give any indication at the plot. All we have is the typical use-Toy-Story-and-Nemo-to-promote-the-next-movie for the first 70%, a robot cleaning up the earth (because you know, we humans destroyed it ), some cheesy Evita music, the typical animated-character-wanting-something-more-in-life and an annoying robotic voice saying the name of the title because they don't think we are smart enough to figure it out.
    well, according to Jim Hill, Wall E gets all his info about humans based on what trash he collects (since humans no longer live on Earth). perhaps that song is one of his connections to how he thinks humans are.

    interesting concept.

    I can't argue with your opinion if it failed to make a good impression, but it is just a teaser -- a teaser one full year out from the release date. Ironically, Pixar's early teasers generally aren't rec'd well. I recall that the first teasers for both Cars and Finding Nemo were widely panned by fans on the Internet. I think the Monsters Inc teaser got a mixed response too.

    I personally liked it. It's clearly meant to establish a connection to Pixar's previous work (as many Pixar trailers do), but in a new, kinda sentimental way. I thought the bit about the lunch and the brainstorming session was really effective. And then then you get just a glimpse of who/what Wall-E is. I thought the music was just fine, it has a bit of a whimsical off-kilter feel. And I think it really was intended as an homage to Terry Gilliam's "Brazil", which is widely considered a sci-fi masterpiece.

    Ratatouille I don't find as bad (at least not trailer wise). While they do insert the occasional Can-Can type song (which I can buy given the French atmosphere and it being a trailer).... Ratatouille seems to have a fairly original score. Michael Giacchino also composed for Incredibles (which music-wise I found to be nice, but not really memorable).


    I know this is a small point, but that is not Evita music. I've seen the show on stage many times and have the movie memorized so I know a bit about the music.
    I hear the background music from Buenos Aires (minus the looking-up-at-the-sky part). That's what I hear. (And for goodness sake, now I have Buenos Aires in my head........ damn you pixar )

    Wow! Tell us how you really feel.
    What, am I not allowed to dislike it because it is Pixar (or the opposite... must I have to like it because it is Pixar)?

    The trailer is what it is, a teaser. It makes you want to see more.
    Exactly. And for me, that just didn't happened. In fact, the last Pixar teaser that actually made me want to see the movie was The Incredibles (where Bob was trying to put on his costume).

    The trailer is what it is, a teaser. It makes you want to see more. I thought it was clever, them talking about the other films they made. I can't wait to see it. Thanks for posting the link.

    All I know is that it has just about the exact same music as Evita (Buenos Aires I believe) had (different instruments of course, but still....) which came out 9 years before Brazil. And in the case that it is Brazil..... still ain't original.

    it sounds to me that Disney Inquistor has a serious case of "Anti-pixaritis".
    Nope, just a bad case of crappy-trailer-itis.
