pete's dragon poster

“The weird thing, for me, is that the reason I felt this was the right movie to make was because the tone didn’t feel that different [compared to my past work]. Sometimes I would joke that we’re just remaking Ain’t Them Bodies Saints with a dragon instead of Casey Affleck,” director David Lowery says, comparing his upcoming fairy tale, Pete’s Dragon, to his meditative and somber 2013 drama. “All the movies I make I can’t help but to make them incredibly personal, try to make them mine. That’s just the way I do it.” The co-writer/director didn’t expect to follow up his acclaimed tone poem with a Disney remake, but once he and Toby Halbrooks finished the first draft of the script, he thought, “Of course this is the next movie I’m going to make.”

Below, check out our Pete’s Dragon preview.

The teaser trailer for Disney’s reimagining of Pete’s Dragon showed just enough of Elliot the Dragon. The buildup and small glimpse of the creature was all audiences needed to see, at least in a teaser. Of course, Disney couldn’t hide the titular dragon in the marketing forever, as great as that would’ve been.

Below, a new Pete’s Dragon image contains most of the massive CGI character.

Disney has found tremendous success in these past few years by revisiting and “re-imagining” some their most beloved and iconic films as modern blockbusters, much to the chagrin of some purists. However, Pete’s Dragon is the exact kind of movie that should be remade – the original 1977 film, while it has a few charming moments here and there, is no classic. In other words, there’s nothing wrong with taking another stab at this story.

And there is certainly promise in the tale of a young boy who befriends an invisible (imaginary?) dragon. And there is certainly promise in handing this material to a director like David Lowery, who is a left field choice for a family movie. The first trailer for new Pete’s Dragon is a few days away, but the first poster has dropped, giving us our first tease of this new film.

black mirror season 3

Black Mirror may be the most addictive and watchable exercise in misery ever devised. Creator Charlie Brooker‘s twisted science fiction anthology series received acclaim in its native England, but it didn’t become a full-blown phenomenon until its first two seasons arrived on Netflix last year. Naturally, the streaming giant promptly picked the show up, ordering a third season consisting of 12 brand new episodes.

While Netflix is keeping the details of the new season under lock and key, we now know that at least one of the episodes will be a bit of a star-studded affair. Director Joe Wright has signed on to helm an episode and he’s bringing Bryce Dallas Howard and Alice Eve with him.

jurassic world deleted scene

Since Jurassic World made over $1.6 billion at the worldwide box office earlier this summer, chances are strong that you’ve already seen Colin Trevorrow‘s film and are therefore ready to check out a deleted scene. If so, you’ve come to the right place. One of the scenes that hit the cutting floor, which can also be found on the new Blu-ray and DVD, has made its way online and is currently available for your viewing pleasure.

Well, we’re using the phrase “viewing pleasure” loosely as the scene involves Bryce Dallas Howard and Chris Pratt literally covering themselves in dinosaur poop. Then again, that may very well be your thing. This is a no judgment zone.

You can watch the Jurassic World deleted scene after the jump. Just remember to wash your hands before you eat anything.
