Marvel Television and Netflix have announced that Lucy Liu will be directing the first episode of the upcoming Luke Cage season two.
Liu is best known for her acting work, appearing in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill, the Kung Fu Panda movies, Elementary, Ally McBeal, Lucky Number Slevin, Charlie’s Angels, Shanghai Noon and much more. On the directing side of things, she was behind the camera for four episodes of Elementary, an episode of Graceland, and a short titled Meena.
A new trailer has been released for DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox’s Kung Fu Panda 3. The latest trailer again covers what will be taking pace in the movie, including Po’s reunion with his father and his return home to train his fellow pandas to defend themselves from a dangerous threat, the supernatural villain Kai. Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Jackie Chan, Seth Rogen, Lucy Liu, and David Cross all return to voice their characters, while Bryan Cranston, Kate Hudson, and J.K. Simmons are the newcomers to the cast.
You can watch the new trailer for Kung Fu Panda 3 below along with added bonus videos, one introducing the “Pandiva” Mei Mei (voiced by Hudson) and the other a music video for a song about Mei Mei titled “Nunchuck Princess” in which Jack Black gets to bring together his Po character and his Tenacious D singing voice.
Jack Black returns to voice the lovable martial arts panda oaf Po in Kung Fu Panda 3. It has been nearly five years since the last installment, where the title character helped stop an invasion of China, and the audience learned that he was not the last of his kind. Now we are getting a glimpse of what a father and son reunion will look like kung fu panda style in an all new trailer for the film.
Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad, Trumbo) will voice Po’s father, while J.K. Simmons (Whiplash, The Spider-Man Trilogy) will voice the nefarious Kai. Check out the full trailer below.
DreamWorks Animation has released a new trailer for Kung Fu Panda 3, the trilogy-maker in their hit animated franchise.
The trailer is brief, but features a nice tip of the hat to Star Wars. It involves Po (voiced once again by Jack Black) and his father Li (Bryan Cranston), a reunion that was teased at the end of Kung Fu Panda 2.
You can watch the new trailer and see a poster for the movie below.
It’s already been over two years since we found out that Bryan Cranston, Rebel Wilson, and Mads Mikkelsen (who has since departed the cast due to scheduling conflict) had been cast in Kung Fu Panda 3, joining returning stars Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Seth Rogen, Jackie Chan, Lucy Liu, David Cross, and Dustin Hoffman. It’s already been four years since Kung Fu Panda 2 arrived in theaters, believe it or not, on its way to $665.6 million worldwide.
Now the sequel has resurfaced as DreamWorks Animation begins promoting the movie. The first images have been released online and can be seen below, along with some quotes from the cast.
