But his relatively quiet existence is shattered when he accidentally summons a mythical spirit from his past which storms down from the heavens to enforce an age-old vendetta.

A Great Journey Is Afoot In New Trailer For Kubo And The Two Strings

27 January 2016 12:30 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Matthew McConaughey, Charlize Theron, Rooney Mara and Ralph Fiennes are all headed to the Land of the Rising Sun in today’s new trailer for Laika (Coraline, ParaNorman) and Focus Features’ much-anticipated animation, Kubo and the Two Strings.

Orchestrating the sprawling adventure from behind the lens is Travis Knight, the head honcho of Laika who is poised to make his directorial debut. Lifted from a pitch by ParaNorman scribes Marc Haimes and Chris Butler, Kubo and the Two Strings is billed as a swashbuckling adventure situated in ancient Japan.

Game of Thrones alum Art Parkinson (Rickon Stark) leads the charge as the titular Kubo, a brash and wide-eyed adventurer who provokes the curse of a malevolent spirit. Keen to banish any evil from his hometown of Hosato and its surrounding lands, Parkinson’s hero sets out to topple gods and monsters alike, including Ralph Fiennes’ formidable Moon King.

The late David Bowie brought something down to earth (literally, in one case) to his film acting roles. We look at his film acting roles.

Editor's note: we don't like to run material to generate clicks off the death of someone. We did, however, want to talk about the wonderful film and TV work that the late, great David Bowie has left behind. Hence, we've thus held this piece back to now.
