Those watching the Oscars last night might have caught a glimpse of Jon Favreau‘s The Lion King. The film is a CGI remake of the 1994 Academy Award-winning animated film that centered on a young lion cub being groomed to be king of Pride Rock. This new look may feel like familiar territory considering a lot of the footage in it was already seen in the initial teaser trailer. However, it all seems like its setting up for something bigger. And not just a brand new poster. Check out the teaser and the new poster here below.
Disney’s animated classic The Lion King has been reimagined as a new live-action style film from director Jon Favreau, who helmed the studio’s live-action makeover of The Jungle Book. Now the studio has just released the first look at the new Lion King in the form of a teaser trailer. While it might have some familiar sights and sounds, the virtual cinematography technology gives the film tangibility. Check out the trailer here below.
The first official trailer has been released for Mute, the latest from Moon, Source Code, and Warcraft director Duncan Jones. Jones also co-wrote the screenplay along with Michael Robert Johnson (Sherlock Holmes, Pompeii).
The movie is described as “a science-fiction Casablanca,” following a mute bartender in a not-so-distant future Berlin. It stars Alexander SkarsgÃ¥rd, Paul Rudd, Justin Theroux, Seyneb Saleh, Gilbert Owuor, Robert Sheehan, Nikki Lamborn, Noel Clarke, Daniel Fathers, Florence Kasumba, and Sam Rockwell.

Jon Favreau‘s The Lion King is already being hailed as one of the most anticipated films of 2019. We saw a small snippet of the live-action take of the animated opening sequence at D23, which pretty much tells us that this will be a visually stunning film. But that was just the beginning.
It’s almost as if the cast of Marvel’s Black Panther is too good to be true. Then there’s a report that says not only is it true, it’s getting better as we speak. The film, which already stars Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Forest Whitaker, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira, Daniel Kaluuya, Winston Duke, and Florence Kasumba, will now add Angela Bassett (American Horror Story) to the cast. More on the story below.
