Last year, Disney really got their whole reimagining game down. While Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent were box office hits, neither quite captured the spirit or the appeal of the original animated films. Kenneth Branagh, however, accomplished just that recently with his lovely Cinderella remake. Next at bat to reimagine another Disney classic is director Jon Favreau.
Following up his charming drama Chef, Favreau returns to big studio filmmaking with The Jungle Book. Watch a clip from the film below.

Walt Disney Pictures has released a series of images featuring the cast of Jon Favreau‘s “live-action” adaptation of The Jungle Book posing next to their computer animated counterparts. Hit the jump to check out the photos, which I guess serve as a classier/better version of when companies like DreamWorks Animation would do a split screen showing an actor voicing his role during the trailer. Hit the jump to see the new Jungle Book photos.

Ever since getting a taste of the history between Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) in The Avengers, fans have been hoping for a standalone movie following either or both of the former agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for their own adventure.

Yesterday brought our report straight from the set of Captain America: Civil War when the film was in production in Atlanta, Georgia last June. Along with that came a batch of posters for all the characters on Team Cap, as well as an interview with stars Chris Evans and Sebastian Stan. But that was just the beginning of our Civil War coverage this week.
There are rumblings of a new trailer for the Marvel Studios sequel arriving this week, but in the meantime, we’re running interviews from our set visit all week. Today we’ve got interviews with Robert Downey Jr., and some good stuff with Chadwick Boseman, a.k.a. Black Panther. But right now we’ve got a batch of new Captain America Civil War posters showcasing Team Iron Man, and one can’t help but notice they’re a man short when facing Team Cap. Read More »
If the Minions aren’t your cup of tea, then maybe you’ll be more interested in one of Illumination Entertainment’s other projects coming this year. The Secret Life of Pets is the next one from the animation studio arriving this summer, but just before Christmas this year, they also have the musically charged Sing.
Like many animated movies, this one takes place in a world where animals live like humans, and one koala has fallen on hard times, unable to keep his theaters up and running. So in a last ditch effort to keep the place alive, he decides to throw an epic singing competition, and some clips of the animals auditioning for the show have just debuted before the official teaser trailer arrives next week. Watch the Sing audition clips after the jump and prepare to tap your feet. Read More »

Even if you’re just a casual fan of video games, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of the controversy known as Gamergate. Without getting into the finer details, it’s basically an online movement that originated online in August of 2014 that is said to be about ethics in game journalism, but has come under fire for pushing forth sexism in the video game industry.
It all began when game designer Zoe Quinn became the target of an online group after a disparaging blog post about her by an ex-boyfriend went viral in the video game community. Over a year later, it has turned into a provocative and eye-opening look at video game culture, the changing profile of what is a “gamer” and the inner-workings of the game industry. And now that story has proven to be intriguing enough for a potential Gamergate movie. Read More »
