‘Dumbo’ Official Trailer: Tim Burton Returns for More Eye-Popping Disney Magic

‘Dumbo’ Official Trailer: Tim Burton Returns for More Eye-Popping Disney Magic
Tim Burton gave Disney a $1 billion hit with his 3D reimagining of “Alice in Wonderland” in 2010, and he could very well do the same next year with “Dumbo.” The film follows in the footsteps of “Cinderella,” “The Lion King,” and more as the latest live-action adaptation of a Disney classic. Burton has brought together an impressive cast of former collaborators — including “Dark Shadows” star Eva Green, “Batman Returns” villain Danny DeVito, and Batman himself, Michael Keaton.

Burton’s “Dumbo” is loosely based on Disney’s 1941 animated film of the same name. Colin Farrell stars as soldier Holt Farrier, who returns home from war and is recruited by a circus owner (Danny DeVito) to care for a newborn elephant with oversized ears. Once the elephant reveals he can fly, the circus owner concocts a plan to make the circus rich.

The film is Burton’s first release since “Miss Peregrine’s

Chloe Grace Moretz (‘The Miseducation of Cameron Post’) on fighting gay conversion therapy in era of Mike Pence [Exclusive Video Interview]

Chloe Grace Moretz (‘The Miseducation of Cameron Post’) on fighting gay conversion therapy in era of Mike Pence [Exclusive Video Interview]
When Chloe Grace Moretz read the script for “The Miseducation of Cameron Post” she was “taken aback, obviously, about conversion therapy as a whole, and that this is an actual practice in America.” She was even more surprised when she met actual survivors, and found that “none of them were older than 25; they had been in since they were 15. I think the mundanity of the issue was something that really shocked me.” Set in 1993, this FilmRise release stars Moretz as a teenage girl whose conservative guardians hope to change her sexual orientation by sending her to a religious camp. Watch our exclusive video interview above.

Review: "The Night Stalker" (1972) Starring Darren McGavin; Kino Lorber Blu-ray Special Edition

  • CinemaRetro
By Todd Garbarini

I was three years-old when John Llewellyn Moxey’s The Night Stalker premiered on the ABC Movie of the Week on January 11, 1972 and it took me nearly twenty years to catch up with it on a late night rerun on a local ABC-tv affiliate. Featuring the terrific late character actor Darren McGavin in the role of Carl Kolchak, an intrepid reporter who wants to print the truth regardless of what his editor says after finding himself in the midst of several murders, The Night Stalker, penned by the great Richard Matheson based on an unpublished novel, is a delightful slice of early 1970s spooky entertainment fare that is most definitely a product of a time that was populated by groovy music on the radio, TV dinners, and little kids getting tossed around in the backs of mammoth station wagons. The Las Vegas of 1971 when this movie was
