This week on episode 29 of The Disney Movie Review, Pixar releases its first full-length trailer for The Good Dinosaur, but the trailer has no dialogue. That’s not an accident and we’ll tell you why. Ant-Man opened with more than $58 Million last weekend beating Universal Pictures’ Minions. We look into the formula Marvel used to beat Minions. GQ magazine pranks Lucasfilm and there is nothing they can do about it. ESPN is in a lot of financial trouble and I am one big reason why. That and much, much more.
