Disney’s slowly been going through its back catalogue over the past few years, remaking its greatest hits in live-action with the help of 21st century technology. This spring brings The Jungle Book and Alice Through the Looking Glass (a sequel to 2010’s Alice in Wonderland remake), and then later this summer comes Pete’s Dragon.
Directed by David Lowery, Pete’s Dragon brings the 1977 movie into the modern day. Oakes Fegley is the titular Pete, a little boy in the woods who claims to live with a giant green dragon. Robert Redford and Bryce Dallas Howard also star. The first Pete’s Dragon teaser trailer has just hit, and you can check it out after the jump.

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 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.

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.

Jessica Chastain seems to be everywhere this year: rattling around a haunted house in Crimson Peak, shooting off into outer space in The Martian, running from dinos in Jurassic World.
