THE JUNGLE BOOK

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.

Idris Elba - star trek beyond villain

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.

The Walk IMAX trailer

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.

Star Wars: the Force Awakens logo with date

Earlier this week, we posted a rumor about when the tickets to Star Wars: The Force Awakens would go on sale. That date still hasn’t been officially confirmed by Disney, although Melbourne’s IMAX theatre has since posted that tickets are expected to go on sale in late October. However, another detail within my report has now been validated. Hit the jump to find out more about the possible Force Awakens 7pm screenings.

The Jungle Book questions

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.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Lupita Nyong'o
We don’t know much about Lupita Nyong’o‘s character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And we might not learn anymore about her role until we see the movie. Even with “Force Friday” quickly approaching, the actress believes we won’t see Maz Kanata until we see the character on the big screen in the film.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Resident Evil 6

How many Resident Evil movies are they going to make and who still watches these “films”? I ask myself this question whenever a new Resident Evil movie is announced. And while Resident Evil 6 is tentatively titled Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, that isn’t a binding contract. (Remember in 2009, when the The Final Destination was marketed as the last film in that franchise?). But returning Resident Evil franchise star Ali Larter (who will play Claire Redfield for the third time) promises this film will actually mark the end of the franchise.

Star Wars Land

Over the weekend at D23 Expo 2015 in Anaheim, Bob Iger made the huge announcement that Star Wars Land would be coming to Disneyland in California and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando Florida. The announcement was filled with a bunch of juicy details, but raised just as many questions.

Where will these Star Wars-themed lands be located in the existing theme parks? Is Disneyland’s Toontown set to be demolished? When will both Star Wars Lands open to the public? Will Star Wars Land offer any alcoholic beverages? Lets explore these questions and much more, after the jump.
