Since Zootopia has been on home video for awhile, I hope you’ve taken the time to pause the movie during the scene where Duke Weaselton is selling bootleg copies of movies we all know and love, but with an animal twist that only Zootopia can offer. You’ll find titles like Wreck-It Rhino, Meowana and Pig Hero 6 in the pile of bootleg movies, showing us what the animal versions of those movies would be like in the thriving metropolis of anthropomorphic creatures.
Now Zootopia directors Rich Moore and Byron Howard, as well as screenwriter Jared Bush, have created parody posters for some of the Oscar nominees who will be vying for a golden man when the awards are passed on this Sunday, February 26. They include pun-tastic parodies of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, La La Land, Hell or High Water and more.

Director Stephen Frears (High Fidelity) has not one but two biopics out in theaters this year. The Program was recently released, but the Lance Armstrong biopic was a disappointment, despite a dedicated performance from Ben Foster. It’s probably Frears’ next film, Florence Foster Jenkins, that more people will be talking about later this year. The director’s upcoming picture stars Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, and Rebecca Ferguson.
Watch the Florence Foster Jenkins trailer below.

Meryl Streep can do just about anything. She’s done comedy and drama, played witches and rock stars and Holocaust survivors, brought the likes of Margaret Thatcher and Julia Child to life — and for all that trouble, she’s been nominated for Oscar a record 19 times (including three wins). But the one thing she can’t do, in the new trailer for Florence Foster Jenkins, is sing.
To be fair, Streep herself can sing perfectly well — you can hear her in musicals like Mamma Mia! and Into the Woods. It’s her character who possesses a famously abysmal voice. However, Florence Foster Jenkins isn’t letting a little thing like lack of talent keep her from pursuing a career as an opera singer. Especially since, thanks to her devoted manager St. Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant), she has no idea how bad she is. Simon Helberg, Nina Arianda, and Rebecca Ferguson also star.
