'Mowgli' Debut Trailer Puts Spotlight on All-Star Cast - Watch Now!

There’s a new Jungle Book movie coming titled Mowgli, and by the looks of the debut trailer and the amazing cast, it’s going to be really great.

Here’s a synopsis: Blending live action and performance capture, the story follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli (Rohan Chand) raised by a wolf pack in the jungles of India. As he learns the often-harsh rules of the jungle, under the tutelage of a bear named Baloo (Andy Serkis) and a panther named Bagheera (Christian Bale), Mowgli becomes accepted by the animals of the jungle as one of their own. All but one: the fearsome tiger Shere Khan. (Benedict Cumberbatch). But there may be greater dangers lurking in the jungle, as Mowgli comes face to face with his human origins. The other story’s central animal characters are: Kaa, the snake (Cate Blanchett); the leader of the wolf pack, Akela (Peter Mullan); the scavenging hyena, Tabaqui (Tom Hollander); Nisha, the female wolf (Naomie Harris), who adopts the baby Mowgli as one of her cubs; Nisha’s mate, Vihaan (Eddie Marsan); and Mowgli’s Brother Wolf (Jack Reynor).

Matthew Rhys and Freida Pinto also star.

The film will hit theaters on October 19.

Benedict Cumberbatch, Andy Serkis & Cate Blanchett Tease 'Darker Retelling' of 'Mowgli' at CinemaCon 2018!

Matthew Rhys, Benedict Cumberbatch, Rohan Chand, Andy Serkis and Cate Blanchett hit the red carpet together at 2018 CinemaCon: Warner Bros. Pictures Invites You to The Big Picture, an Exclusive Presentation of our Upcoming Slate at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace on Tuesday (April 24) in Las Vegas.

Writer-director Andy, 54, introduced a first look at Warner Bros.’ Mowgli with two and a half minutes of material of the follow up to Disney’s 2016 box office smash The Jungle Book.

“[The film will be an] epic story of a child becoming a warrior,” Andy teased (via THR). “It’s a darker retelling. People are so used to the 1968 [Disney animated version]. This is trying to delve into Kipling’s book and the journey for Mowgli as a outsider, as an other, trying to find his identity.”

“Andy is the undisputed master of this form,” Benedict added. “And he’s a fantastic storyteller who understands character and motivation.”

Mowgli is set to open in theaters on October 19!

Gary Oldman Almost Turned Down the Role of Winston Churchill!

Gary Oldman is joined by by wife Gisele Schmidt as they arrive at the Great British Film Reception on Friday night (March 2) at the Brtish Residence in Los Angeles.

The 59-year-old actor stopped by the event honoring the British nominees of the 2018 Oscars alongside Tom Payne, Jane Seymour, Edgar Wright, Andy Serkis, and Camilla Luddington.

At the event, Gary revealed he almost didn’t take on his Oscar-nominated role of Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour!

Gary shared with Page Six that he nearly turned down the role because Churchill had been played so many times before, but after learning more about the former Prime Minister, he decided to take the role.

“What interested me was to show a side of him that was dynamic and energetic and funny — he wasn’t the curmudgeon we all assumed he was,” Gary said. “You imagine him to be grumpy all the time, and I am sure he sometimes was, but other times he looked like a baby. There was this boyish sweetness to him.”
