Okay, Bad Boys For Life, the long overdue capper to the Bad Boys trilogy will finally be arriving early next year, and Sony Pictures Entertainment has just released the first trailer.

The film reunites Will Smith and Martin Lawrence in a film about two reckless cops. While Michael Bay helmed the first two, the director is sitting this one out, leaving Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah to fill the Bayhem void. And judging by the looks of this trailer, there are plenty of expensive cars, Smith and Lawrence banter, slow-motion gun shooting, and goofy dialogue. Check out the trailer below.

Gemini Man

The first teaser trailer for Ang Lee‘s Gemini Man set up the basic plot of a man who is confronted by an assassin who looks just like him but 27 years younger. The film will star Will Smith as both the elder assassin and the young operative. Though we have seen de-aging technology being used before, it has garnered mixed results. Most of the time it looks just like CG plastic mask. But it looks like Lee and producer Jerry Bruckheimer are going to great lengths to make sure that isn’t the case here and that it will be a “phenomenal experience for the audience.”

Now Paramount Pictures has released a new featurette that shows that Gemini Man will not have “de-aging” or “face replacement.” Check out the video below.

‘Aladdin’: Director Guy Ritchie On The Positive Vibes Felt During Production Of Disney’s New Live-Action Reimagining

Aladdin director Guy Ritchie

Guy Ritchie‘s filmography is splattered with heavy amounts of witty dialogue and gritty action sequences. While it may not necessarily lend itself well to a Disney family-friendly film, his filmmaking style works in Aladdin. Based on the 1992 animated film of the same name, the upcoming live-action version is part of a successful trend that has Disney going through their vault to see which one of the animated classics they could reimagine into a live-action film next.

There’s action, suspense, and a bit of romance. But there is also humor, singing, and dancing. All of these are key aspects the animated original had. So to say that director Ritchie and the cast had a huge responsibility to do the film justice would be a vast understatement. And yet, they pulled it off.

Geeks Of Doom attended the Aladdin global press conference with their fellow journalists to talk to Ritchie about the production, how he stayed true to the spirit of the animated original, his style of filmmaking, the positive vibes that helped set up the camaraderie and set the tone, and more. Check out what he had to say here below.

How ‘Aladdin’ Stars Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott Bring An Entirely Whole New World To Life

Aladdin

Based on the 1992 animated classic of the same name, Aladdin was one of Disney’s first animated features to have characters of color. Representation is important in this day and age because it allows people of color and the marginalized to see themselves in the characters seen on screen. So it was significantly important to reflect that in the casting of the live-action adaptation of Aladdin. Though there were reports of some casting issues, director Guy Ritchie and the rest of the Disney team were dedicated to finding the right actors for the film. And they found them in Mena Massoud, who plays the title character, and Naomi Scott, who plays Princess Jasmine.

Geeks of Doom and a group of journalists were invited to attend the global press conference in Los Angeles, CA, where Massoud and Scott talked about what it was like to be a part of the production, working with Ritchie, and how they all infused some of their own personalities and quirks into the characters while also respecting the animated original. Check out what they had to say below.

Will Smith As Genie In Aladdin

Disney’s live-action take on Aladdin will see Will Smith bring the high-spirited and energetic Genie to life. With his own brand of charisma and a bit of hip-hop flair, this Genie is not like the Robin Williams take in the animated original, but the performance still pays homage to the late comedian. In fact, the actor says the remake is the highlight of his career. And you can see how much fun he is having in that performance.

Geeks of Doom and a group of journalists were invited to sit down at the Aladdin global press conference where Smith spoke about believing in that Disney magic, how he made some of those memorable songs his own, finding a career resurgence, and what representation means to him. Check out what he had to see below.

Aladdin

Aladdin
Director: Guy Ritchie
Writer: Guy Ritchie, John August
Cast: Will Smith, Naomi Scott, Marwan Kenzari, Navid Negahban, Nasim Pedrad, Alan Tudyk, Billy Magnussen
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | Runtime: 128 Minutes
Release Date: May 24, 2019

There is absolutely no room for error when it comes to adapting a Disney animated classic into a live-action film. The studio has recently found some modest critical and commercial success with some of their titles. But the one common thread that each of them shares is that all of them are a part of a legacy and each has a large existing fanbase. So the bar of expectation for a live-action take on Aladdin is pretty high. Especially when it comes to capturing the same spirit of the story, themes, and music. But most of all, the characters, like Aladdin, Jasmine, and the unforgettable Genie.

Luckily, Guy Ritchie‘s take on the film is something that stays true to the spirit of the animated original while still maintaining his style of filmmaking. A huge surprise at best, the film captures everything that we love about the animated original through its cast, especially with Will Smith‘s Genie and Naomi Scott‘s scene-stealing performance as Princess Jasmine. With some slight updates to the story and songs, along with a brand new song from Alan Menken, this version of Aladdin is an upbeat and fun contemporary take on the 1992 original.
