Pixar’s ‘Day & Night’ Teaser Clip

The fine folks over at /film have gotten their hands on a 15 second clip of Pixar’s upcoming short film, Day & Night. The short will screen before Toy Story 3, in theaters June 18, 2010. Click the image below to view the clip.

When Day, a sunny fellow, encounters Night, a stranger of distinctly darker moods, sparks fly!

But as they discover each other’s unique qualities–and come to realize that each of them offers a different window onto the same world–the friendship helps both to gain a new perspective.

‘Rio’ Trailer

In theaters April 8, 2011.

Official synopsis:

‘Rio’ is a 3-D animation feature from the makers of the ‘Ice Age’ films. Set in the magnificent city of Rio de Janeiro and the lush rainforest of Brazil, the comedy-adventure centers on Blu, a rare macaw who thinks he is the last of his kind. When Blu discovers there’s another — and that she’s a she — he leaves the comforts of his cage in small town Minnesota and heads to Rio. But it’s far from love at first sight between the domesticated and flight-challenged Blu and the fiercely independent, high-flying female, Jewel. Unexpectedly thrown together, they embark on an adventure of a lifetime, where they learn about friendship, love, courage, and being open to life’s many wonders. ‘Rio’ brings together a menagerie of vivid characters, a heart-warming story, colorful backdrops, energizing Latin and contemporary music, and family-friendly song and dance.
