Jungle Cruise: 10 Other Disney Rides We Want Movie Versions Of

There are several Disney theme parks located around the world, with rides that are based on and inspired by well-known characters, shows, and flicks. Many of these places feature an attraction called The Jungle Cruise, and as the name suggests, it allows guests to pretend they are riding down a river, past exotic animals and lush greenery.

Next summer, a movie version of this ride will come out starring Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Jesse Plemons and Paul Giamatti. This has us thinking, what other popular and exciting rides from Disney parks could be turned into full-length films? Here are our suggestions!

Disney's schedule for the next... four years? er, okay.

Emily Blunt and The Rock in "Jungle Cruise" If you thought Disney was slowing down theatrical to focus on putting Disney+ over, think again. I'm not sure how legit this information is because I've only seen it on twitter but it comees from a Buzzfeed editor with a "verified" check so perhaps. Weird that there hasn't been major trade coverage at this writing but here we go. Supposedly Disney has released their schedule for the next 4 years (what?) though one must view the titles and dates with a healthy dose of skepticism since, for example, Avatar sequels are pure illusions and the world will surely end before we get them. Also though there are a few Fox Searchlight titles listed that mini wing's releases are always decided much later since they regularly pick up films from festivals that they think have awards potentials and so you never know about those in advance.

10th Anniversary: The Young Victoria

by Cláudio Alves

It's difficult to follow the Oscar race each year without developing a prejudice against prestige biopics. At times it seems its the genre where creativity goes to die, where formulas thrive and the appearance of respectability is more important than genuine artistic merit. These words are perchance, too harsh, because specific qualities do manage to shine through the baseline of expected mediocrity on numerous occassions. Take The Young Victoria, Jean-Marc Vallée's perfectly serviceable retelling of Queen Victoria's early years and marriage to Prince Albert. Rewatching it ten years after its initial release, the film isn't as despairingly dry as you may have remembered. The Young Victoria is one of Emily Blunt's lesser efforts, but she's luminous nonetheless, bringing a sense of modernity that rubs abrasively against the historical setting. She never convinces as a 19th-century ruler, but that manages to feel more like a feature than a fault.

Marvel Deciding Between Two Major Villains For Fantastic Four Reboot

The Fantastic Four reboot under Kevin Feige and co. continues to be quietly developed, away from the limelight. Considering the importance of the superhero family to Marvel history and the popularity of the characters among fans, there’s a lot of pressure on the studio to get their story right. Particularly after their less-than-well-received earlier cinematic outings.

And while details on the project still remain scarce, sources close to Wgtc – the same ones who told us a She-Hulk show was in development and that Charlie Cox is returning as Daredevil, which trusted insider Daniel Rpk has since corroborated – have revealed that Marvel is currently deciding between two major villains for who will be the main antagonist of the pic: Kang and Annihilus.

For those unfamiliar, Kang is a 40th-century descendant of Reed Richards who has a vast knowledge of future tech, as well as an intimate knowledge of the past

Edge of Tomorrow 2 Director Has No Idea If Sequel Will Ever Happen

Edge of Tomorrow 2 Director Has No Idea If Sequel Will Ever Happen
Will we ever see Edge of Tomorrow 2? Maybe not. The greatest video game movie not based on a video game, Edge of Tomorrow, was a runaway hit back in 2014. Pitting a time-hopping Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt against an invading extraterrestrial force, Doug Liman's film is an action-packed critical darling, and a much-anticipated sequel has been on the cards for years. Sadly, it sounds like that sequel is looking more and more unlikely, despite a script being finished and everyone involved wanting more.

Director Doug Liman has placed the blame on the busy schedules of his A-list duo, as well as his own diary being pretty crowded.

"I honestly have no idea. Between my schedule, Tom [Cruise]'s schedule, and Emily [Blunt]'s schedule, it's tough. Certainly, it's a world that I love, and like with Impulse, there's a lot more story to be told."

John Patrick Shanley on Returning to Irish Roots With 'Wild Mountain Thyme'

John Patrick Shanley on Returning to Irish Roots With 'Wild Mountain Thyme'
It’s been more than a decade since John Patrick Shanley turned his Pulitzer- and Tony-winning play Doubt: A Parable into the five-time Oscar-nominated drama Doubt, starring Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman. With Wild Mountain Thyme — adapted again from his own Broadway play, Outside Mullingar — the writer-director returns to the big screen, swapping a Catholic school in New York for a remote farm in the Irish countryside. Loosely based on his family’s experience on the Emerald Isle, the "lyrical romance," which Hanway Films is selling at Afm, stars Emily Blunt and Jamie Dornan as obstinate, star-crossed ...

The Fantastic Four’s McU Origin Story Has Been Revealed

Despite being part of one of the most famous and recognizable superhero teams in history after making their debut in 1961, and remaining relevant in the pages of Marvel comic books ever since, the Fantastic Four are still waiting for a big screen blockbuster that will finally do them justice.

They’ve been the subject of a low budget effort that was made just to retain the rights to the characters that was never even released, two Tim Story-directed adaptations that did decent business at the box office but didn’t get much love from either fans or critics, and a few years ago, they featured in one of the most notorious box office bombs in recent memory.

However, with the rights to the Fantastic Four finally under the Marvel Studios banner, folks are optimistic that they’ll soon get the cinematic treatment that they deserve. And while we won

Kristen Stewart Says ‘Slut-Shaming’ Led to Being Dropped From ‘Snow White’ Sequel

Kristen Stewart Says ‘Slut-Shaming’ Led to Being Dropped From ‘Snow White’ Sequel
Kristen Stewart got brutally honest when speaking to Howard Stern this week (via Yahoo) about being dropped from the “Snow White and the Huntsman” sequel. Stewart starred opposite Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron in the 2012 revisionist fairy tale, which was enough of a box office hit with nearly $400 million worldwide for Universal Pictures to greenlight a sequel. Photographs of Stewart kissing “Snow White” director Rupert Sanders while still in a relationship with then-boyfriend Robert Pattison became the subject of a tabloid scandal, one Stewart tells Stern led to extreme slut-shamming and her being dropped from the “Snow White” sequel.

“We lived in a different time then, you know what I mean? I feel like the slut-shaming that went down was so absurd,” Stewart said. “And they should’ve put me in that movie! It would’ve been better. Not to be a dick, but… They didn’t put me in

Emily Blunt and Jamie Dornan Get Romantic in ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ First Look Image

John Patrick Shanley’s Wild Mountain Thyme has revealed a first look image, and it’s whimsical to be sure. It’s been a while since Shanley stepped behind the camera to direct a film.

He’s finally back in the director’s chair with this forthcoming romance, also adapted from his Broadway hit (called Outside Mullingar). The film stars Emily Blunt (A Quiet Place), Jamie Dornan (The Fall), Jon Hamm (Mad Men), Dearbhla Molloy (No Reservations), and the …

Anthony (Dornan) always seems to be out in the fields working, worn down by his father’s (Walken) constant belittling. But what really stings is his father’s threat to bequeath the family farm to his American cousin Adam (Hamm). Rosemary (Blunt) at first seems to hold a grudge for having been shamed by Anthony in childhood, but the sparks between them would keep a bonfire blazing through the night. Her mother Aoife (Molloy) strives to unite the families before it is too late.

Fantastic Four Fan Art Gives Us John Krasinski & Emily Blunt as Marvel's First Family
A new Fantastic Four movie is currently in development at Marvel Studios, and fan art has cast John Krasinski and Emily Blunt as Mr. Fantastic and Invisible Woman. Earlier this year, it was reported that the crime-fighting foursome were on their way to the McU with an all-new movie. Because it will bear no connection to the previous Fantastic Four movies, a new cast will need to be introduced for each of the four characters. On Instagram, artist Rob Brunette has done some fan casting by creating some artwork of Krasinski and Blunt as a part of the McU's Fantastic Four, and you can take a look at it below.

The roles of Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman were first introduced on the big screen in the 2005 Fantastic Four movie with Ioan Grufford and Jessica Alba in the roles, co-starring with Michael Chiklis as The Thing and Chris Evans as Human Torch.

They've seen Damon transform into Jason Bourne for the Bourne series and Cruise channel Ethan Hunt for the Mission: Impossible movies.  But when it comes to performing stunts, the actors have very different approaches. Damon explained how during Monday's episode of Conan. Damon once grabbed dinner with Cruise and Emily Blunt in London. During the meal, the Top Gun star told him he'd been dreaming of performing a certain stunt sequence for a Mission: Impossible movie for years.

Here’s How John Krasinski And Emily Blunt Could Look In The Fantastic Four Reboot

With the Fantastic Four set to join the McU in the coming years, Marvel will have to recast Reed Richards and Sue Storm yet again. So far, while Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Miles Teller and Kate Mara have done their best in the 2005, 2007 and 2015 movies, we’ve yet to get a definitive version of either Mr. Fantastic or Invisible Woman on the big screen. But fans know who they want to see play the pair next: John Kraskinsi and Emily Blunt.

The Banker Trailer: Samuel L. Jackson and Anthony Mackie Star in Apple TV+ Movie

Joseph Baxter Nov 4, 2019

Apple TV+ movie The Banker reunites Avengers actors Samuel L. Jackson and Anthony Mackie, joined by Nicholas Hoult, for a fact-based drama.

The Banker is a big-names-headlined feature film that will complement a rapidly-expanding array of television content for the just-launched premium streaming service, Apple TV+.

...And by “big names,” we mean two members in good standing of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Avengers, Samuel L. Jackson and Anthony Mackie. However, the thing for which the duo will assemble here is a 1960s-set drama in which they play the U.S.’s first African-American bankers, who initially had to operate behind a white figurehead they trained, played here by Nicholas Hoult. – Essentially a version of the Remington Steele gambit.

George Nolfi stepped in as director for The Banker, working off a script, based on a true story, that he co-wrote with Niceole Levy, along with burgeoning scribes David Lewis Smith and Stan Younger,

New Ant-Man 3 Theory Teases The Fantastic Four’s McU Debut

Possibly the biggest question amongst fans about the upcoming phase of the McU is how the filmmakers plan to introduce the First Family of Marvel, the Fantastic Four, into the franchise. While traditionally the Four’s origin tale is unrelated to other heroes, given how interconnected the lives of the characters are shown to be in the movies, it could very well be a familiar face who has a hand in their arrival. In fact, one new theory even goes so far as to say that Scott Lang may be responsible for their debut.

The Quantum Realm introduced in Ant-Man and the Wasp is a largely unexplored micro-verse, and a convenient plot device that can be used to hand-wave away the most outrageous parts of the films, from magic to time travel to mutants. It wouldn’t be too much of a stretch then to have the Realm take the

Julie Andrews “loved” Mary Poppins Returns

Disney brought the iconic Mary Poppins back to the big screen last year with Mary Poppins Returns, as Emily Blunt took on the unenviable task of filling the shoes of Julie Andrews as the magical nanny some 54 years after Andrews’ Oscar-winning turn in the 1964 classic. Unlike her original co-star Dick Van Dyke, Andrews […]
