Pete's Dragon Clips Get Up Close and Personal with Elliott

Pete's Dragon Clips Get Up Close and Personal with Elliott
While Suicide Squad seems to be a lock for biggest end of summer movie this year, Pete's Dragon will surely give it a run for its money, arriving in August as a big family winner, as it will appeal to just about everyone. Except, perhaps, those who are a little too fond of the original 1970s classic. Elliott the dragon sure does look a lot different than he did the first time around. He was once a hand-drawn animated creation from the mad minds at Disney. Now he is a CGI creature that looks like a big furry green cat. But as two new clips will attain, this is still the Elliott we know and love, no matter what kind of crazy cosmetic makeover he may have endured!

The first clip takes us deep into the woods, where Pete has been living as a wild boy on his own. Though

First Pete's Dragon Clip Unravels a Mystery in the Woods
Disney has had non-stop success with their live-action remakes of classic fairy tales. This summer, they will go a slightly different route, reimagining the original live-action/animated classic Pete's Dragon for modern audiences. The first clip has arrived, and it features stars Bryce Dallas Howard and Robert Redford trying to unravel the mystery behind a young boy who claims to have been living in the woods.

Robert Redford believes it is impossible for young Pete to have survived for 6 years on his own. But according to Bryce Dallas Howard's Grace, he wasn't alone. Not according to the boy. He's drawn a picture of his best friend. A strange green creature that lives in the forest. Impossible. Because this creature looks just like the dragons told about in the popular folklore of the surrounding area. It also looks just like a picture Grace's dad drew for her when she was a little kid!

Pete's Dragon Trailer #2 Fully Reveals Elliott the Dragon
One of this summer's most anticipated family movies has finally debuted a full-length trailer! Check-out the latest sneak peek from Disney's Pete's Dragon which features spectacular never-before-seen footage of Pete's dragon, Elliott in action. The film, which is a reimagining of Disney's cherished family film from 1977, stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Oakes Fegley, Wes Bentley, Karl Urban, Oona Laurence and Robert Redford. The movie is directed by David Lowery, and opens nationwide on August 12, 2016.&#160

Pete (Oakes Fegley) is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliott. For years, old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales...Until she meets Pete.

And from Pete's descriptions, Elliott seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham's stories. With the help of Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year-old girl whose father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon. Pete's Dragon also stars Karl Urban, Craig Hall, Isiah Whitlock Jr. and Marcus Henderson.

Disney debuted the first trailer in February, during ABC's The Wonderful World of Disney: Disneyland 60 TV special. Disney also previewed this remake during their CinemaCon presentation in April. Now we get to see Elliott take flight for ourselves in this exciting teaser of what's to come. Pete's Dragon could be one of this summer's last big hits at the box office, opening in theaters August 12, going up against Sony's Sausage Party, Universal's Spectral and Paramount's Florence Foster Jenkins.

Along with the new trailer, Disney has also unleashed several new photos from Pete's Dragon, giving us an even better look at Elliott. Yesterday, the studio released the official one-sheet poster which shows Pete wrapped in Elliott's fuzzy tale. We have it all for you to check out right now courtsey of Youtube. Will this be the movie to beat this August

Streaming Service Acorn TV Scores with Postwar Dramas 'A Place to Call Home,' 'Serangoon Road'

Streaming Service Acorn TV Scores with Postwar Dramas 'A Place to Call Home,' 'Serangoon Road'
The seemingly straightforward Australian melodrama "A Place to Call Home," from creator Bevan Lee, more closely resembles a collection of nesting dolls parceling out secrets one by one. Available to American viewers for the first time on December 1, via the streaming service Acorn TV, the series adapts the structure of the daytime soap to the tale of fearless nurse Sarah Adams (Marta Dusseldorp), as she tries to rebuild her life in the rural hamlet of Inverness, outside Sydney, in 1953. With lugubrious pacing and an aversion to salacious details, "A Place to Call Home" is, like Sarah herself, easy to dismiss but difficult to shake. "You misrepresented her," says town doctor Jack Duncan (Craig Hall). "She is a lot more than blandly efficient." Whereas primetime potboilers ("Scandal," "How to Get Away with Murder") turn melodrama's age-old tropes to new social ends, and today's period pieces ("Mad Men," "Masters...

It has been speculated the reason behind the show.s axing is because the second season failed to provide the million-plus viewers of the first, though a Channel 7 spokesperson pointed out to If that, with last Sunday.s episode drawing 855,000 viewers,

The Devil's Rock

The Nazi’s are like an infinite gift to horror filmmakers. The depths of their depravity was limitless, allowing for all sorts of possibilities. They could create super-soldiers (S.S. Doomtrooper) or be zombies (Dead Snow) or some other supernatural entity (The Keep). And that is hardly a comprehensive list.

In The Devil’s Rock, the Nazis are dabbling in the occult. It’s June 1944, the eve of D-Day. Ben (Craig Hall) and Joe (Karlos Drinkwater) are on a two-man mission in the Channel Islands. Their task is to destroy German weapons right before the invasion of Normandy. Upon hearing screams coming from an ominous building near their target, Ben decides to snoop around. Not a good idea.

Moving forward on their mission, the pair uncover a secret occult lair housing a mysterious Nazi officer (Matthew Sunderland, Under the Mountain) and his beautiful but devilish captive (sexy Gina Varela).
