Andy Serkis Star Wars Character

Andy Serkis‘ Jungle Book: Origins was originally scheduled to come out in October of last year, but it’s been postponed multiple times and is now scheduled for a 2018 release date. The two-year delay does give Serkis’ film more space from Jon Favreau‘s smash hit reimagining of the famous title. As for how the two adaptations differ, Serkis believes his take is more faithful to author Rudyard Kipling‘s original source material.

Below, the War for the Planet of the Apes star explains the differences between Jungle Book: Origins and The Jungle Book.

Dave Gibbons Discusses the Watchmen Miniseries

When it comes to HBO’s potential adaptation of Watchmen, artist Dave Gibbons “[knows] as much as the next person.” Gibbons was involved with director Zack Snyder‘s 2009 adaptation, making appearances and promoting the movie and he remains pleased with it. Gibbons fully supported the film, and it sounds like he’d do the same for the miniseries. The project is in very early stages, so the artist doesn’t know what the future holds, but he always thought Alan Moore‘s 12-issue story would work better as a show than a movie.

Below, read what Gibbons had to say about the Watchmen miniseries.

Blade Runner 2049 trailer breakdown 46

If we must return to the world of Blade Runner, a journey back with director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival) and cinematographer Roger Deakins sounds like a trip worth taking. Based on the trailers, their vision of 2049 Los Angeles is every bit as gorgeous and as bleak as we’d hope. The clip shown at Comic-Con didn’t take Hall H to the streets or skies of LA; it was an exchange between Officer K (Ryan Gosling) and a replicant (Sylvia Hoeks) working with Neander Wallace (Jared Leto).

Ready Player One Trailer

Next year, Steven Spielberg is going to bring audiences into an epic nerdland with Ready Player One. His adaptation of Ernest Cline‘s wildly popular novel will have plenty of references, but hopefully, it’ll have a lot more going for it than a trip down nostalgia lane. Considering Ready Player One is a Steven Spielberg film, we have little reason to believe it won’t be.

Below, watch the Ready Player One trailer.

Luc Besson interview

When filmmaker Luc Besson was 10 years old, he was reading the comic book he’d adapt into a massive feature film 48 years later. Based on Pierre Christin and artist Jean-Claude Mézières‘ “Ambassador of Shadows,” published in 1975, Besson has brought their colorful, wacky world to to the big screen with his personal touch on every frame. From the complex, clever set pieces to the jokes to the colorful environments, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is pure Besson.

In a race against the clock, Valerian (Dane DeHaan) and Laureline (Cara Delevingne) will have to save the city of Alpha, where alien species from all over the galaxy come together to share knowledge. The world feels endless, full of all sorts of aliens, characters, and environments. It took many years it took to build this world piece-by-piece, and the French director behind La Femme Nikita and The Fifth Element recently told us about the process.

Only the Brave trailer

Joseph Kosinski’s first two films, Tron: Legacy and Oblivion, lived in fantasy land. Both science-fiction movies showed what a precise eye he has, with smooth camerawork and stunning compositions. He’s crafted two lavish, visually appealing films, which, dramatically, sometimes leave more to be desired. The director is taking on more dramatic material with his next feature, Only the Brave, based on the true story of the Granite Mountain Hotshots.

Below, watch the Only the Brave trailer.
