Trailers for Disney’s live-action adaptation of Aladdin have been relying on old familiar themes and elements from the animated original. At the same time, there needed to be some new additions to generate a new wave of fans who may have never seen the Ron Clements‎ and ‎John Musker-directed original or just may not have been around to see it.

While that may have worked for some, a brand new trailer gives us a better sense of the size and scope of the live-action remake while also bringing back some of the more memorable scenes from the 1992 film. Check it out below.

The Lion King

Those watching the Oscars last night might have caught a glimpse of Jon Favreau‘s The Lion King. The film is a CGI remake of the 1994 Academy Award-winning animated film that centered on a young lion cub being groomed to be king of Pride Rock. This new look may feel like familiar territory considering a lot of the footage in it was already seen in the initial teaser trailer. However, it all seems like its setting up for something bigger. And not just a brand new poster. Check out the teaser and the new poster here below.

Jay and Silent Bob

It’s been nearly two years since Kevin Smith revealed that he had written a sequel to his 2001 comedy Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Now we know that the sequel, titled Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, is officially happening with word that Saban Films and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Content Group have given the project the greenlight. Saban has acquired the North American rights, while Universal has the foreign rights.

The movie will once again star Jason Mewes and Smith, reprising their roles as Jay and Silent Bob, and will make fun of Hollywood’s obsession with reboots, remakes, and sequels while at the same time being all three itself.

New ‘Pet Sematary’ TV Spot Teases Return Of Zelda

Pet Sematary (2019)

Paramount has released a new TV spot for Pet Sematary, the latest adaptation of Stephen King‘s novel of the same name.

The TV spot is extremely short at only 15 seconds, but it teases a character who will no doubt be of interest to fans of King’s book and the 1989 movie adaptation which stole sleep from so many: Zelda. The name alone causes me to start sweating nervously. I’ve never even played any of the video games because of it. OK so that’s all a bit of exaggeration, but that ’89 movie helped along greatly by Zelda did something very few movies have ever been able to do: terrify the ever-loving shit out of me.

You can check out the TV spot below.

Steven Spielberg’s ‘West Side Story’ Finds Its Maria In NJ High School Student Rachel Zegler

West Side Story

Steven Spielberg‘s West Side Story has found its actress to play Maria opposite Ansel Elgort‘s Tony.

It’s been confirmed that New Jersey high school student Rachel Zegler will be playing the iconic role of Maria, the love interest of Tony, who is a member of a rival street gang. Natalie Wood played Maria in the 1961 original. The film was ahead of its time and one of the few to feature a richly diverse cast that had people of color in lead roles. It was one that helped Rita Moreno, who played Anita in the original and has a role in this new take on the story, to become the iconic figure that she is now.

Obviously with a film like West Side Story, any talent that is brought into the film will need to be able to sing. And before you question whether or not Zegler can sing, I suggest you take a look at the video of her singing a cover of “Shallows” from A Star Is Born. It left me floored. Check out who will be joining Zegler on the cast and the video, below.
