The Pride Lands are ready to welcome a new generation of heroes. Disney Channel is making plans for The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar, a Lion King spinoff TV movie intended to launch a new TV series.
The Lion Guard will bring back some familiar faces, and even some familiar voices to go along with them. Rob Lowe and Gabrielle Union will play Simba and Nala, and James Earl Jones and Ernie Sabella return from the original film as Mufasa and Pumbaa. Max Charles (young Peter Parker from The Amazing Spider-Man) plays the new lead, Simba and Nala’s second-born cub Kion.

Every once in a while, a film gets a sequel and it makes you think, “The first movie was a hit?” Think Like A Man is one of those. But the 2012 original starring Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara, Meagan Good, Regina Hall, Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Henson, Romany Malco and Gabrielle Union grossed a quiet $91 million dollars and Sony quickly greenlit a sequel. It’s hitting theaters June 20, continuing the story of a group of friends who had some serious relationship issues in the first film. Now, the cast is all back together and they’re in Vegas for a wedding. There, simultaneous bachelor and bachelorette parties threaten relationships once again. Check out the first trailer and poster below. Read More »
The idea behind In Our Nature couldn’t be more simple: a young couple (Zach Gilford from Friday Night Lights, and Jena Malone from Into the Wild) head upstate for a weekend retreat. At their destination, they run into an expected second couple: Gilford’s character’s father, played by John Slattery, who has weekend plans of his own with much younger girlfriend Gabrielle Union.
Things get a little awkward as the two couples circle one another, and as Gilford and Slattery start to work out their family issues. But the trailer also suggests that there are some really good moments as, for example, Malone and Union talk about their own respective romantic situations. Some of those scenes look like they have an appealingly unvarnished honesty. And then is that Slattery hitting on Malone? How weird. Roger Sterling advancing on a young woman? Never! Check out the trailer below. Read More »

On Mad Men, John Slattery proved to be fantastic at letting down his loved ones; on Friday Night Lights, Zach Gilford demonstrated an equal talent for being disappointed in his. So it makes perfect sense that the pair would team up to play a father and son with a rocky relationship in In Our Nature, an indie drama slated to premiere later this week at the South By Southwest Film Festival.
Specifically, Gilford stars as a son who still harbors resentment over his parents’ split. When a scheduling mishap leads to Gilford and his girlfriend (Jena Malone) sharing the family vacation home with his dad and his girlfriend (Gabrielle Union), father and son are forced to come to terms with one another and with the women in their lives. Watch the trailer after the jump.
