New Jungle Book Trailer: It's Like The Lion King, But Live-Action and Terrifying

7 February 2016 5:56 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Did you love Disney's animated animal movies like The Jungle Book and The Lion King as a kid? Then the studio's new live-action Jungle Book will terrify you. In a new trailer for the film, which shows off to have a very Scar-and-Mufasa rivalry between Shere Khan and Bagheera — plus a scene reminiscent of that wildebeest stampede! — we see a whole lot more of Disney's live-action world. All of Hollywood's biggest stars signed on for the chance to voice CGI animals in the remake (except for people like Benedict Cumberbatch and Andy Serkis, who are voicing CGI animals in the competing Jungle Book: Origins). We've got Bill Murray as Baloo, Idris Elba as Shere Khan, Christopher Walken as King Louie, and Lupita Nyong'o as Raksha. Hey, was hearing Bill Murray hum the "Bear Necessities" on your bucket list? Because now you can check that off. Watch the latest trailer above »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens becomes only the third movie ever to gross $2 billion worldwide

7 February 2016 9:58 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Having become the first release ever to gross $900 million at the North American box office this past Friday, Star Wars: The Force Awakens has now achieved another milestone, with the movie crossing the $2 billion mark worldwide today.

It’s only the third time ever that a film has reached the landmark figure, with James Cameron achieving the feat twice with Titanic ($2.187 billion) and Avatar ($2.788 billion). However, it is unlikely that The Force Awakens will have enough left in the tank to knock either of those from their current positions and will surely have to settle for third in the list of the highest-grossing movies of all time, leaving Cameron as the king of the box office world.

Why Is British Acting Dominated By The Privately Educated?

7 February 2016 4:07 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway looks at a recurring issue in British film and television…

While the debate about the lack of nominations for black actors at the Oscars rumbles on in the Us, a similar debate is happening in Britain. However, in the UK the debate is not about race; it’s about class. The argument goes that the top-tier of acting talent is dominated by a privately educated elite.

Last year Labour MP Chris Bryant bemoaned the lack of diversity in the arts world, complaining that it was dominated by those who were educated privately. More recently Damian Lewis was involved in a minor controversy about him being invited to his local comprehensive school for an event as he had been educated at Eton. This week acting icon Diana Rigg hit out at those complaining about upper class actors dominating our screens by pointing out that the opposite was »

5 February 2016 1:13 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It had already taken the crown of the highest-grossing North American release of all time back in early January, and now after fifty days on screens Disney and Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens has become the first film in history to pass $900 million at the domestic box office.

“The film’s achievements are truly astounding, and it’s our great honor to relaunch this cinematic galaxy not only for all the devoted decades-long fans but for a new generation who will keep the Star Wars legacy alive for many years to come,” states Disney’s Alan Horn.

Worldwide, The Force Awakens is expected to become only the third film ever to reach $2 billion this Saturday after James Cameron’s Titanic ($2.18 billion) and Avatar ($2.78 billion).

Star Wars: Episode VIII script out to the cast

30 January 2016 3:32 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week, it was announced that Star Wars: Episode VIII has been pushed back to December 15th 2017, with rumours suggesting the delay was to allow for rewrites to the script to increase the focus on Star Wars: The Force Awakens favourites Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron and Kylo Ren. Well, those rumours were either wide of the mark, or the rewrites have already been completed, as both Daisy Ridley (Rey) and Anthony Daniels (C-3Po) have taken to social media to reveal that they’ve now seen the screenplay…
