Sherlock Holmes 3 Director

Guy Ritchie gave new life to Sherlock Holmes with two films starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law as the mystery solving duo of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John H. Watson. But the third installment will be in the hands of someone else.

Rocketman director Dexter Fletcher has been hired to helm Sherlock Holmes 3, which is slated for release in December 2021, 10 years after Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows hit theaters. Read More »

Aladdin Early Reactions

Right now, it doesn’t seem like many Disney fans are all that excited about the arrival of the studio’s remake of their 1992 animated classic Aladdin. The marketing certainly isn’t doing the movie any favors, whether it’s because of the seemingly wooden performance from Mena Massoud as the titular street urchin or the boring choreography for what should be one of the most lively parts of the movie. However, if the early buzz is any indicator, this movie is much better than the trailers make it seem.

Get the rundown of early Aladdin reactions from social media below. Read More »

aladdin special look

The reaction to Disney’s upcoming live-action Aladdin has been a bit…muted. The footage revealed is a bit lacking, and fans of the original don’t quite know what to make of Will Smith‘s take on the Genie. We won’t know how the film actually is until it’s release, but let’s just say the enthusiasm for this live-action Disney remake is a lot lower than previous releases. But maybe this Aladdin special look will do the trick. The video below goes behind-the-scenes of the Guy Ritchie-directed adaptation, showcasing all the work that went into creating the film’s whole new world.

Sherlock Holmes 3 setting

It’s been almost a decade since we’ve seen Robert Downey Jr.’s Sherlock Holmes and Jude Law’s John Watson share the big screen in 2011’s Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, but Warner Bros. is still interested in bringing them back to complete the trilogy. They’ve set a new release date for Sherlock Holmes 3 in 2021, and now a new report says that the pair could be leaving London for the sequel and heading to the American Old West.

Iago voice

In Disney’s upcoming remake of The Lion King, director Jon Favreau is bringing back James Earl Jones to reprise his role as Mufasa from the animated original. But no such luck for Gilbert Gottfried, who memorably voiced Jafar’s pet parrot in Disney’s 1993 animated classic Aladdin.

Director Guy Ritchie has hired actor Alan Tudyk to take over the role in the studio’s upcoming live-action remake. Tudyk has become something of a lucky charm for Disney after appearing in several of their recent hits, so we really should have seen this coming.

aladdin trailer

Disney has been slowly rolling out the teasers for Aladdin, all of which have been met with, let’s say, mixed reactions. The first teaser trailer in October featured plenty of the original 1992 animated film’s iconography, but barely featured the titular character played by Mena Massoud, much less the film’s highest-billed actor, Will Smith. But then a special TV spot revealed our first look at Smith as the giant, blue genie, and that wasn’t quite well-received either.

Now, Disney has finally released the first official Aladdin trailer in all its wondrous glory. Watch the first full Aladdin trailer below.

aladdin songs

When we learned that La La Land and The Greatest Showman maestros Benj Pasek and Justin Paul were on board to pen new songs for Guy Ritchie‘s live-action remake of Aladdin, we knew were in for a whole new world of great music. But can they live up to the renown of Alan Menken‘s masterful songs for the 1992 animated film? Apparently, Pasek and Paul are eager to try.

Guy Ritchie burst onto the scene with a string of hyper-stylized, hyper-violent British crime movies. With the one-two punch of Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch in 1998 and 2000, respectively, it was clear that a bold new crime caper director had entered the industry. But Ritchie has since expanded his catalogue, moving onto Sherlock Holmes mystery movies, sleek spy films, and Arthurian fantasy epics. All the while he kept his trademark slow-mo style, but it wasn’t quite the same.

Now, Ritchie is returning to the British gangster genre that helped launch him to fame with Toff Guys.
