up, up and away!This movie looks great! According to MovieWeb:

An old man (played by Ed Asner) ties a thousand helium balloons to his house and floats off into the stratosphere. He is accompanied on this adventure by a young boy scout that accidentally stows away on his front porch. Together, they get into all kinds of crazy mishaps.

At this point, I could very easily offer an advanced review of the film. Forty-five minutes is an awful lot of footage to view from an eighty-minute cartoon as a preview. It’s sort of frustrating, because I don’t want to have to sit and wait through these same forty-five minutes all over again when Up gets a proper release on May 29th. I want to watch the ending right now. Damn it! And in Up’s case, it truly is a stunning cinematic achievement that I didn’t necessarily want to be whisked away from. Especially right in the middle of the second act. I was surprised at the emotional depth the film packs. There is a clear and definite reason why this old man has decided to float his house into the heavens, and its rendered in a deeply touching ten minutes that just might break your heart.
