It was the year 1994 that the epic Disney movie The Lion King roared its way into our lives. The story, the songs, the magic still resonates with us today. This weekend, we get to experience the magnificent adventure of Simba, Nala, Timon, Pumbaa and the mighty Mufasa all over again with an updated version of the movie. I recently sat down with the youngest stars of the movie, JD McCrary and Shahadi Wright Joseph play the young Simba and Nala. We talked about feeling the love that is The Lion King.
Disney’s live-action The Jungle Book has a spiffy new teaser trailer – giving us a look at the world in which Mowgli thrives. We get first looks at some of the boy’s friends and enemies – Baloo, Shere Khan, Kaa, Bagheera and King Louis.
Take a peek at Rudyard Kipling’s famous characters as imagined by writer Justin Mark and director Jon Favreau following the jump. The Jungle Book will be in theaters on April 15, 2016.
You know those generic interviews you get for almost every movie that actually gets released? Well, Jon Favreau decided that it might be fun to conduct those interviews and make them a little bit less generic. The result is a series of two-to-three minute interviews with Cowboys & Aliens star Harrison Ford that are anything but.
Check them out following the jump. Some language might be NSFW.
There’s a new trailer for Jon ‘Iron Man’ Favreau’s Cowboys & Aliens. It gives us a bit more of an idea of the plot and a better feel for Favreau’s defiantly uncampy approach. I like it. I like it a lot.
With the current trend of Hollywood movies, sequels have to follow a unique blend of key ingredients in order to make it taste good. First, it has to keep the spirit of the first film alive and well. Next, it has to bigger, better, and stonger than the last. The sequel has to give us that sweet taste that we want to come back for more. Finally, the next movie has to give you more insight of the characters we grew to know from the first movie then wrap it all up with a new story that appeases a newbie. While Iron Man 2 had some ups and downs like a rollercoasters, it still delivers high quality entertainment with its action scenes, less CGI, and solved the problems of the first Iron Man. Truly, this movie is the front runner of the 2010 summer of movies!
