Back in May we saw a trailer for Lord of the Rings, Planet of the Apes, and King Kong star Andy Serkis‘s new adaptation of Rudyard Kipling‘s The Jungle Book titled Mowgli.
At the time the movie was set up at Warner Brothers, where it had been housed over the past four years since we first heard about it. But since that time Warner Bros. lost confidence in the film, and eventually sold it to Netflix. In the acquisition Netflix obtained a film with a hell of a cast, which includes Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Freida Pinto, Matthew Rhys, Naomie Harris, and Serkis, all joining young Rohan Chand, who plays the title character.
Now Netflix has released their own official trailer for the movie, now titled Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle, and you can check it out below along with a synopsis for the movie.
With a new movie based on Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas! on the way, naturally we needed a new version of the song “You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.” The man with the best name ever bestowed upon a child, Thurl Ravenscroft, sang the song for the classic 1966 animated special starring Boris Karloff as the voice of the title character. For Ron Howard’s 2000 adaptation star Jim Carrey sang the song himself. And now, a new version for a new generation.
Despicable Me, Minions, The Secret Life of Pets, and Sing animation studio Illumination Entertainment has released a lyric video for their take on the song, performed by Tyler, the Creator, for the upcoming animated feature The Grinch starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the title character. We heard parts of the song used in the most recent trailer, and now you can hear it in full.
Continue below for much more info on the movie and to listen to the song.
We’ve already seen a couple of trailers for The Grinch, the latest animated adaptation of the Dr. Seuss classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas! being made by Illumination Entertainment, the studio behind Despicable Me, Minions, The Secret Life of Pets, Sing, and another Seuss adaptation, The Lorax.
Now a third trailer for the movie, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Avengers: Infinity War) as the voice of the title character, has been released. You can check it out below along with a synopsis and a new poster.
Marvel Studios has a bit of a habit of announcing sequels before the release of the first film. That being said, it would look like things are in a holding pattern for Doctor Strange. Though the film was a commercial success, it was met with mixed reviews. That being said, the title character is still an important thread in the Marvel Cinematic Universe tapestry. So, of course, Doctor Strange 2 would be in order. And now it looks like one is actually happening. At least, according to Kevin Feige. Check out what he had to say here below.
