Neel Sethi will be the only actor seen in live-action, with the rest of the characters portrayed through CGI. »

15 December 2014 10:52 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Above is the first piece of concept art Disney has released for "The Jungle Book," which looks more like the 1967 animated version of the Rudyard Kipling tale. But director Jon Favreau ("Iron Man," critics' fave "Chef") is attempting a film more along the lines of "Life of Pi" or "Avatar," a photorealistic fully immersive 3D world with lush environments and amazing animated animals. Starring 10-year-old Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken, Giancarlo Esposito, Idris Elba, Ben Kingsley and Lupita N'yongo, Disney's "Jungle Book" remake is slated for an October 9, 2015 release. Here's more official language from Disney: Directed by Jon Favreau (“Chef,” “Iron Man,” “Elf”), based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories and inspired by Disney’s classic animated film, “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of »

First Concept Art From Jon Favreau's Jungle Book

14 December 2014 9:58 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The most recent news of Andy Serkis’ take on The Jungle Book, Jungle Book: Origins, was word of the film’s release moving back a year. Jon Favreau’s Disney version is facing no such shifts and has just released both a logo (above) and some new concept art for the film.With a script by Justin Marks, Favreau’s film will use the blend of computer-generated animals and Neel Sethi in person as Mowgli, the human orphan raised by animals in the jungle to unspool Rudyard Kipling's story. Christopher Walken is set to voice King Louie, ruler of the jungle’s monkeys and apes, while Giancarlo Esposito is Akela, leader of the wolf pack that initially cares for Mowgli. They join a cast that already includes Ben Kingsley (panther Bagheera), Lupita Nyong’o (wolf mother Rackcha), Bill Murray (bear pal Baloo) Idris Elba (lethal tiger Shere Khan) and Scarlett Johansson (charming, »

Disney's 'The Jungle Book' Concept Art and Logo Unveiled

12 December 2014 2:11 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Production has been under way since August on Disney's The Jungle Book, although we haven't heard much about the project since director Jon Favreau sent out selfies with cast members Bill Murray, Christopher Walken and Neel Sethi, who plays young Mowgli. Today, Walt Disney Pictures updated the adaptation's official Facebook page with concept art featuring Mowgli and the panther Bagheera (voiced by Ben Kingsley), along with the official logo. It isn't known how much shooting is left on The Jungle Book, which is scheduled to hit theaters on October 9, 2015.

Based on Rudyard Kipling's clasic novel, The Jungle Book centers on Mowgli, a man-cub raised in the jungle by a family of wolves, who embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery when he's forced to abandon the only home he's ever known.

First Concept Art and Logo Revealed for Disney’s Live-Action Jungle Book Reboot

12 December 2014 1:33 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Yesterday we learned that Warner Bros.Jungle Book film, Andy Serkis’ motion-capture Jungle Book: Origins, was being pushed all the way to 2017.  Possibly capitalizing on that announcement, Disney has opted to reveal the first concept art and logo for its own Jungle Book adaptation, director Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book.  The film will be a blend of live-action and CG animation, with Neel Sethi filling the live-action role of Mowgli while Bill Murray voices Baloo, Idris Elba lends his pipes to Shere Khan, and Scarlett Johansson brings Kaa to life.  While Disney touts this as a live-action film, I’ll be interested to see just how many live-action environments are used, since almost all of the animals appear to be CG.  Regardless, the film puts Favreau (you know, the guy who made Elf) back in family film territory, so I’m eager to see the results.

Movement On Rival "Jungle Book" Films

12 December 2014 12:30 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Two upcoming live-action film adaptations of Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book" are in the works, and the past two days has seen some news regarding both of them.

First up there's the Warner Bros. Pictures version "Jungle Book: Origins" which mo-cap master Andy Serkis is slated to direct. Originally slated for an October 21st 2016 release, the film has now been pushed back a full year to an October 6th 2017 release. Warners has also moved the Gerard Butler-led environmental thriller "Geostorm" into that vacated 2016 slot.

That version is said to be the darker and more accurate to the book and adult-oriented version of the story. Benedict Cumberbatch, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Naomie Harris, Tom Hollander, Eddie Marsan, and Peter Mullan lend their voices to the film.

The delay means the film will also open almost two years after Disney's Jon Favreau-directed "The Jungle Book" film which opens October »

The Fear Monger: Friday The 13th May Bring Back This Iconic Character

7 December 2014 2:13 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Good day, horror fans. The scariest thing about this week might just be the complete lack of big horror releases in theaters. Arguably the biggest debut is Gregory Levasseur.s Egypt-set supernatural horror The Pyramid, but it wasn.t even given that wide of a berth. (It isn.t playing where I live, which may or may not be inside of a haunted pyramid.) There.s also Erik Skjoldbjærg.s Norwegian thriller Pioneer, but that.s got an even smaller release window. On the VOD front, December 5th saw the release of the thriller Poker Night, which stars Ron Perlman, Titus Welliver, Giancarlo Esposito and Ron Eldard. (Go watch The Babadook if you haven.t yet.) In smaller news, Uwe Boll has taken to Indiegogo to try and fund the presumably violent sequel Rampage 3: No Mercy. (Why?) The highly anticipated sci-fi thriller Z for Zachariah, starring Chiwetel Ejiofor and »

Poker Night Review

2 December 2014 9:52 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

As an avid Texas Hold’em player, I’ve honed my ability to read statuesque poker faces concealing the slightest tell (a subconscious sign revealing your rival’s hand). Sure, developing such a sleuthy skill has helped build a nice bankroll for my casino trips, but I’ve also carried this talent over into my film criticism as well. Just because a movie isn’t human doesn’t mean there aren’t tells scattered about the script and screen, as filmmakers unintentionally show their hand long before the cards are flipped. Foreshadowing, heavy-handed-dialogue, condemning red herrings – it’s not that hard to spot a tell.

Squaring off against Greg Francis’ Poker Night, I didn’t expect to face an opponent with Daniel “Kid Poker” Negreanu’s swagger. Establishing itself as a criminal thriller, we meet a police officer named Jeter (Beau Mirchoff) the night he’s abducted by a masked »

Poker Night Deals the Ace of Spades: A Movie Review

23 November 2014 10:10 AM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*an online screener of this film was provided by XLrator Media. Director/writer: Greg Francis. Cast: Beau Mirchoff, Ron Perlman, Giancarlo Esposito, Corey Large, Titus Welliver and Halston Sage. This reviewer has been patiently waiting for an opportunity to review Greg Francis' Poker Night, for over a year. This film, which was shot in this critic's hometown (Victoria, B.C.), is set to release in late 2014. Poker Night is a blend of genres, including those of: horror, crime thriller and even comedy. Though, the comedic moments are often very dark and involve the film's central killer. Poker Night is also well produced and the film offers a recognizable cast. This viewer enjoyed the complex story and many film fans will find something to like here. In the story, Jeter (Beau Mirchoff) is a rookie cop, invited to a game or two of poker.

Batman: Assault On Arkham Blu-ray Review

17 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Batman: Assault on Arkham, the latest effort from DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, casts Batman aside (for the most part) in order to focus on Amanda Waller's Suicide Squad.  The anti-hero team has gotten quite a bit of press lately for its planned live-action adaptation, so now's a great time to take a look at one of the Suicide Squad's animated iterations, now available on Blu-ray. While Batman: Assault on Arkham takes the opportunity to cast Batman villains in lead roles, it doesn't come close to exploring all the potential those characters offer.  The voice acting is spot on as usual and the animation style is a visual joy, but the half-baked plot and immature on-screen antics makes this a weak adaptation rather than a must-have addition to your collection.  Hit the jump for our Batman: Assault on Arkham Blu-ray review.

13 November 2014 12:00 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

This Sunday on ABC’s Once Upon a Time, the forecast calls for extra amounts of snow, seeing as the episode “Smash the Mirror” was supersized to run two hours (starting at 8/7c).

What chilling face-off will the Snow Queen conjure? What burning questions will be answered? (And where does Ingrid stand on the Regina/Robin situation?) TVLine spoke with Lost/Revolution alum Elizabeth Mitchell about all that, her magically gravity-defying wardrobe and more.

Poker Night Deals a Deadly Game of Cards: Trailer and Artwork Reveal

12 November 2014 3:07 PM, PST | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Poker Night is a creepy new horror-suspense film from the mind of writer/director Greg Francis, whose previous work was in the realm of television. According to his IMDb page, he has a knack for putting together series of the eerie and dramatic variety, such as "Devil in the Details" and "A Haunting." And, he is embracing those same ideas in his first motion picture, which had its artwork and trailer revealed recently. As noted by XLrator Media, the film centers on the story of a young detective (named Jeter) and his girlfriend. At some point in the film, Jeter is "caught in a sadistic game of cat-and-mouse when he [and his girlfriend are] kidnapped and tormented by a masked serial killer." His only way out is to use the knowledge he learned from the older detectives in his precinct—played by the likes of Ron Perlman and Giancarlo Esposito, who regularly share their »
