Lest you think Luther would prove the last of Idris Elba’s TV ventures, Showtime has a new Emmy frontrunner in the works. The cable network has officially greenlit a new six-part miniseries from Elba and American Crime boss John Ridley, following the infamous “Black Power Desk” of 1970s London.
We briefly glimpsed the new Trek villain in the first trailer for Star Trek Beyond, but Idris Elba’s big bad hasn’t appeared in the few images Paramount has released to promote Justin Lin’s upcoming sequel. Lucky for us, the latest official photo features Elba’s Krall, a completely new Trek character created specifically for the film, and as the actor explains, one who’s got a bone to pick with the crew of the Enterprise — obviously.
Kids grow up so fast these days. They have to if they’re going to watch the movies Hollywood makes for them.
With a new adventure comes new friends (and foes), and Dory will be meeting a whole host of unfamiliar faces in Finding Dory, Pixar’s long-awaited follow-up to Finding Nemo. As the title suggests, it’s the endearingly absent-minded blue fish who takes the spotlight this time around, but you’re already well-acquainted with Dory and her pals. It’s time to get to know a few of the other characters we’ll meet in the upcoming sequel.
The CGI in Jon Favreau’s adaptation of The Jungle Book looks incredible — though it is a little strange to see the animals actually speak, as you can in the first clip from Disney’s epic new adventure. The sneak peek introduces us to the fearsome and ferocious tiger Shere Khan, voiced by Idris Elba, and while it’ll take some adjusting to hear these famous voices coming out of the mouths of gorgeous animals, Elba is inarguably the perfect voice for Khan.
Disney’s live-action update of The Jungle Book looks absolutely gorgeous, and if nothing else, the trailers for Jon Favreau’s new adaptation of the beloved classic promises some incredible CGI — perhaps even better than Ang Lee’s Life of Pi. We’ll have to wait until next month to be certain, but until then, Disney has released some pretty cool new photos featuring the voice cast posing alongside their respective CG animal characters.
Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: there’s gonna be a Dark Tower movie. Stephen King’s sprawling Western/mystical sci-fi epic has been Hollywood’s great white whale for some time now, stymieing adaptation efforts from such luminaries as J.J...
Disney has released a new TV spot for The Jungle Book, offering a fresh look at Jon Favreau’s live-action / CGI adventure with a little bit of new footage thrown in for good measure. Titled “Live the Legend,” the spot opens with Ben Kingsley’s Bagheera, the panther mentor of young Mowgli, explaining the (bare?) necessity of returning the boy to the jungle.
The 2016 Screen Actors Guild (or SAG) Awards were held last night, honoring the best in last year’s movies and television. Unlike the Oscars, the SAG Awards were a bit more diverse this year, with Idris Elba winning acting prizes for his roles in Beasts of No Nation and Luther. Meanwhile, Spotlight took home the award for Best Ensemble in a Motion Picture, which is basically the SAG’s Best Picture award.
Disney’s next animated release is Zootopia, and while the trailers have yet to really sell this thing (save for a couple of solid sight gags), the studio has released two new clips along with the final trailer to get you in the mood for some wacky animal shenanigans. You can watch the full trailer above and check out the two clips below, which do a better job of conveying the film’s sense of humor.
