The first trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming showed us quite a bit from the upcoming franchise reboot of Marvel’s webslinger that’s being done in collaboration with Sony Pictures this time. We know Robert Downey Jr. will be helping out a bit, even though he’s ultimately trying to deter young Peter Parker (Tom Holland) as he is anxious to get involved in helping to keep the world safe all while living the life of a teenager who is still in high school.
Even though Peter Parker is keen to prove himself as an Avenger, the bad guys in New York City might prove to be too much to handle for the wallcrawler. Michael Keaton will certainly be a formidable threat as the villain Vulture, but there’s another antagonist in town who will create trouble too. The villain Shocker will appear, and he’s being played by Bokeem Woodbine. There’s a quick shot of him in the Spider-Man: Homecoming international trailer, but some new promo art gives us a much better glimpse at a different look he’ll wear in the movie. Read More »

Jon Favreau‘s remake of The Jungle Book utilized an all-star cast of recognizable names lending their recognizable voices to an ensemble of recognizable animals, so it makes sense that his upcoming remake of The Lion King will follow a similar template. The director has revealed that Donald Glover, who has made a habit of popping up just about everywhere these past few years, has joined the cast as Simba, with the legendary James Earl Jones reprising the role of Mufasa.

Fans of Disney’s beloved animated classics from decades past consistently ask why the studio is bothering updating movies that everyone already loves. In the case of Beauty and the Beast, director Bill Condon recognizes that the original iteration of Beauty and the Beast was perfect, raising the question of why Disney is bothering to remake it at all. A new Beauty and the Beast featurette attempts to explain that by going behind the scenes and showing fans how they’re making this story feel familiar and new at the same time.

In Disney’s hit animated adventure Moana, our title character sets out to sea with little to no experience sailing. Eventually, she learns some tips and tricks thanks to the help of the demigod Maui (Dwayne Johnson). But in an earlier draft of Moana, the character was actually a little more proficient at sailing, even outdoing her six brothers.
That’s right, in an earlier edition of Moana, our hero actually had six older brothers. When Moana hits home video very soon, there will be a deleted scene featuring the siblings together in a little sailing race just off the coast of their island. It shows Moana (Auli’i Cravalho) had no trouble keeping up with (and even surpassing) her brothers on the sea, despite the fact that they were older. That scene has made its away online, and you can watch it after the jump. Read More »

A new Rogue One visual effects reel from the wizards over at Industrial Light & Magic shows off all the layers that went into the planetary destruction of Jedha after a little blast from the Death Star. There are also some breakdowns of sequences on Scarif when the Rebels are attacking the Imperial base on the tropical planet.
