In August 2014, we learned that Bob Peterson was removed as director of The Good Dinosaur, and co-director Pete Sohn was appointed the sole director of the project. We’ve heard about just how much of the film has changed under the new direction, and the word “drastic” isn’t at all hyperbolic in this case. Perhaps that’s why my visit to Pixar to preview The Good Dinosaur felt very different from my past trips to Emeryville.

These live-action updates just keep coming. Disney has found massive success with reimagining their classic animated films, so obviously they’re going to keep going back to the well. The studio’s latest update is maybe their most ambitious remake to date. If the The Jungle Book Russian trailer is any indication, director Jon Favreau has some pretty high aspirations for the film.

Ever since it was announced that Idris Elba had joined the cast of Star Trek Beyond, details on who he plays has been kept tightly under wraps.

But now Idris is finally talking about his role in the upcoming threequel, albeit in vague terms. Elba promises that his Star Trek Beyond villain character will have an interesting complex journey and be an groundbreaking twist on the classic Star Trek villain.

Robert Zemeckis‘ The Walk is the kind of movie that demands to be seen in IMAX 3D, or at least the kind of movie Sony would like you to think demands to be seen in IMAX 3D. So the studio has just issued a nearly five-minute IMAX trailer to convince you that those pesky surcharges will be totally worth it.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as Philippe Petit, a French high-wire artist who in 1974 attempted to walk between New York’s Twin Towers on a tightrope strung between the two buildings. Needless to say, it looks like an intense experience. Watch The Walk IMAX trailer after the jump.

The trailer for Jon Favreau‘s reimagining of The Jungle Book hit the web today (watch The Jungle Book trailer now if you haven’t already), and the filmmaker has taken to twitter to answer some of the fans questions. Since not everyone is following Favreau’s tweets, I thought I’d round-up the interesting answers and present them to you in a more digestible format (a blog post).
Also I tweeted this, but I wanted to bring this to everyone’s attention here on the site: After watching The Jungle Book trailer, consider this: 99% of the animals and environments you see in that trailer were created with CG. The film was all shot in a studio in downtown Los Angeles. Mowgli, the human boy, is the only live-action character, and aside from the ground he stood on, most of the environment around him was created digitally. Judging from the early footage in the trailer, I’m impressed. Hit the jump to read Favreau answer some Jungle Book questions and talk bout how he created the film and more.
