As you’ve surely noticed, Disney is obsessed with turning their animated classics into new live-action movies. Just this year alone we’ve gotten word of Tim Burton directing Dumbo, Alex Ross Perry writing Winnie the Pooh, and Reese Witherspoon starring in a Tinkerbell movie, not to mention live-action takes on Mulan, Pinocchio, Prince Charming and now an Aladdin prequel called Genies. And that’s not even all of them.
But the next one hitting theaters is The Jungle Book from Elf and Iron Man director Jon Favreau. The footage that played at D23 last month blew people away, and now you can get a sneak peek of that footage in a quick tease from the movie before the full trailer arrives on Monday. Watch The Jungle Book teaser below! Read More »

Dane DeHaan plays James Dean in the first trailer for Anton Corbijn‘s Life, alongside Robert Pattinson as the Life magazine photographer sent to profile him.
The premise is not unlike that of the recent David Foster Wallace biopic The End of the Tour: the two embark on a road trip just as the tragically short-lived superstar is beginning his ascent, revealing and rediscovering themselves along the way. Watch the Life trailer after the jump. Read More »
Ant-Man wouldn’t be a Marvel movie if it didn’t contain a bunch of fun easter eggs and references to comic book creators, storylines and side characters.

Robert Zemeckis and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are telling their own version of the event that made front-page news in the 1970s, when Philippe Petit and a team of conspirators strung a wire between the World Trade Center towers in New York City so that Petit could perform a high-wire walk hundreds of feet above ground. The story has all the tension and planning of a heist, and the daredevil spectacle of the most insane physical feats, but the real idea underlying Petit’s act was artistic.
Sure, there’s a documentary about the event — Man on Wire, which is a great film, as a matter of fact — but The Walk aims to use effects wizardry and IMAX scale to put audiences right up on the wire with Petit. The first full trailer is now available; check out this new The Walk trailer below. Read More »

In the film, Ben Kingsley plays a dying man who transfers his consciousness into the body of Ryan Reynolds. However, Kingsley’s mind begins to realize the truth about where Reynolds body came from and the sci-fi action and suspense begins. Watch the first Self/Less trailer below.

Almost 20 years ago we heard Sean Connery voice a dragon in the film Dragonheart. It’s a film that has its fans, though it’s been a while since we heard anyone pining fondly for that particular story.

If you find yourself wondering where Dragonheart 2 went, you’re not alone. Regardless, have a look at the Dragonheart 3 trailer below. (But don’t expect Connery, as this time a different knight, Sir Ben Kingsley, is voicing the dragon.) Read More »
