The One and Only Ivan is the latest Disney flick that was originally intended for theaters only to end up on Disney+. Based (loosely) on a true story, the star-studded family is about a 400-pound silverback gorilla who sounds exactly like Sam Rockwell, and also has a talent for drawing. Blending live-action and CGI, the film is adapted from the Newbery Medal-winning book by Katherine Applegate. A new One and Only Ivan featurette goes behind-the-scenes of the film, and features a moment where Bryan Cranston enthusiastically proclaims, “A gorilla who draws!” What more do you need?

Along with remaking all of their animated classics into live-action spectacles, Disney has also been leaning into using photorealistic computer generated animals to lead their stories. From Lady and the Tramp to The Lion King, the animation studio is bringing very convincing digital animals to the screen, for better or worse. Even Call of the Wild, which came to Disney from 20th Century Fox, fit right in with their slate by utilizing computer generated dogs. Now another live-action/CGI hybrid animal adventure is coming to Disney+.
The One and Only Ivan, based on Katherine Applegate’s bestselling book of the same name, follows a 400-pound silverback gorilla who was taken from the wild at a young age and brought into the home of Mack (Bryan Cranston), who raised him lovingly until he was big enough that he needed to be kept in a glass enclosure in the middle of a shopping mall when he’s not being shown off to a paying audience. For Ivan, it’s his normal, everyday life, but when a captured baby elephant named Ruby arrives, he begins to dig into his past and longs to return to his jungle home. Watch the Only and Only Ivan trailer below. Read More »

But in the internet age, it’s more important to go viral before the Big Game, and some of this year’s biggest commercials are already online. One of them will be of particular interest to fans of Mountain Dew, Bryan Cranston and Stanley Kubrick.
Mountain Dew has just launched their new Mountain Dew Zero Sugar (or MTN DEW Zero Sugar), joining the ever-growing roster of carbonated drinks swapping out sugar for artificial sweeteners. And to give the new soft drink a proper launch, they recruited Bryan Cranston to recreate scenes from The Shining. So instead of Jack Torrance being a murderous psychopath, he just wants his wife to try some of this Mountain Dew Zero Sugar like any sane person would. Read More »
El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie hit Netflix and limited theaters last Friday, and the general consensus about the film is that it’s well-executed but ultimately inessential. Turns out writer/director Vince Gilligan agrees about that last part; in a new interview, he admits that “this movie, strictly speaking, does not need to exist.”
Read Gilligan’s comments calling the film a “gift to the fans,” learn about the lengths he and his team were willing to go in order to preserve some of the film’s surprises, and read about some of the El Camino deleted scenes which will be available on an eventual Blu-ray release.
