Watch Mac DeMarco Debut New Song “Fooled By Love” With Jon Batiste On Colbert

Watch the lovely trailer for Soul, the new film from Pixar

My only complaint about Pixar's new film Soul is that is doesn't come out until June 19.

But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before – a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth. Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious s...
