When the first strains of the haunting “Baby Mine” float over the first trailer of the live-action Dumbo, you know you’re in for some emotional damage. The animated movie that traumatized you as a kid is now a live-action film, adapted by Gothic connoisseur Tim Burton, no less. But Burton’s Disney adaptation of Dumbo surprisingly reigns back the darkness and gives us a little more of that childhood awe in the Dumbo trailer.

But don’t get too excited: you won’t be seeing his abs and dancing skills. Because this film is animated. Sorry, you’ll just have to use your imagination. The Smallfoot trailer is below.

Before Beauty and the Beast topped the box office with a record-breaking debut this month, Disney was already all-in on their roster of live-action adaptations of their animated classics (check out our rundown of all of the developing projects here). While Mulan is too early in development to know whether it’s a musical and Aladdin is searching for young stars to play the two leads, the remake of Dumbo is finalizing its cast with production slated to begin sooner than later this year.
Tim Burton is directing the Dumbo remake, and he’s already brought on board two of his previous collaborators with Danny DeVito and Eva Green on board. Now the cast will include someone the Batman and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children director hasn’t worked with before as Colin Farrell is in talks to take one of the lead roles.

Early next year, we return to the city of brotherly love to see what kind of shenanigans the crew of Paddy’s Pub will be up to when the 12th season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia premieres on FXX. It’s crazy to think that the series has been running this long, and it even has an order for its 13th and 14th seasons already placed. And if this new trailer for this season is an indicator, things are only going to get more out of hand.
A red-band It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 12 trailer has just popped up online, and it’s far more raunchy than anything we’ve seen from Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson and Danny DeVito. I’m talking about words that you normally don’t hear on cable channels other than HBO, Cinemax and Showtime, plus a couple of dildos, some discussion of being paid for sex and much more.
See all the madness below, but beware that the language is totally NSFW. Read More »
