When the elderly, terminally ill Damian seeks to prolong his life by having his mind transferred into a healthy young body, things don’t quite go as expected.

Laika, the company that produced the brilliant Coraline and fine ParaNorman, releases The Boxtrolls today. Sadly, while outdoing the first two in terms of technical wizardry, The Boxtrolls assembles a host of familiar elements with only one lead character and two minor ones really ever coming to life.
Forty years ago today, a French tightrope artist named Philippe Petit walked from one World Trade Center tower to the other on an illegal wire. It was a caper worthy of Mission: Impossible and the subject of an award-winning documentary, Man on Wire. But neither Petit’s book, To Reach The Clouds, nor Man on Wire could do what Robert Zemeckis is about to do – put you up there with Petit in a 3D/IMAX 3D film.
It’s called The Walk and stars, among others, Joseph Gordon-Levitt (as Petit), Ben Kinglsey (Iron Man 3), James Badge Dale (Flight) and Charlotte Le Bon (The Hundred-Foot Journey). The Walk will premiere on October 5, 2015. Further details await just beyond the jump.
Amidst the high-powered signings of the likes of Christopher Walken, Scarlett Johannson, Lupita Nyong’o and Ben Kingsley to voice beloved characters of Disney’s The Jungle Book, it became apparent that a certain lovable, bumbling, kind-hearted bear had yet to be cast.

Marvel Studios continues to create ambitious, successful superhero movies with Iron Man 3 – the best of Tony Stark’s solo adventures to date. This time out, Stark is suffering post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of having his world upended in The Avengers – leaving him vulnerable both physically and emotionally.
While Iron Man 3 isn’t (quite) the movie that The Avengers was, it is an outstanding superhero movie that develops aspects of Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) in very human ways – thus anchoring the superhero exploits to a very relatable human being.
Seriously…? This whole teasing the trailer/TV spot thing is getting out of hand. Cool poster though.
