The One and Only Ivan Trailer

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 »

jumanji the next level trailer

After the sensational box office success of 2017’s Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, director Jake Kasdan and co. knew they had to bring its sequel to a whole new level. And they did more than simply title the third Jumanji film Jumanji: The Next Level. They brought in two legendary comedians in the form of Danny DeVito and Danny Glover — for about the 15 minutes of the movie. The rest of the movie will consist of Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart doing DeVito and Glover impressions, respectively. Genius.

Jumanji: The Next Level takes us back into the world of the video game, which has now malfunctioned and accidentally pulled in DeVito and Glover’s cranky grandpas, swapping them in the bodies of Johnson’s Dr. Bravestone and Hart’s Franklin Finbar. Shenanigans naturally ensue. Watch the new Jumanji The Next Level trailer below.

It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 14 Trailer

Later this month, the FX comedy series It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia begins a historic 14th season. It’s the second of a two-season order made in 2016 that will make the series the longest-running live-action comedy series in TV history, tied with The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet. But just because It’s Always Sunny is making TV history doesn’t mean the gang has become anymore sophisticated.

As the recently released It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia season 14 trailer shows, this fall will have plenty of nonsensical mayhem from Glenn Howerton, Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney, Kaitlin Olson, and Danny DeVito, including a laser tag face-off, a mysterious melon, a film noir plot device, and much more insanity.

This time, DeVito and Glover’s characters — two cranky grandpas who happen to be in the same house when the Jumanji game malfunctions — are swapped into the bodies of Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart. That’s right, this is a whole movie of Dwayne Johnson doing a Danny DeVito impression. Watch the Jumanji The Next Level trailer below.
