Here’s the trailer for the new Will Smith/ Netflix original film, ‘Bright’

If you would have told me 5-10 years ago that Will Smith would be starring in a movie that would be released exclusively on a streaming service, I would have told you that you were crazy.  (reasonably so)

Times have changed since then… We are in a digital revolution where streaming and binge-ing is slowly taking over the market. It truly is incredible to see films and television series released on a streaming service be nominated for and even win awards! (Oscars/Golden Globes/etc.)

The new trailer for the original Film, ‘Bright’, debuted last night. It stars Will Smith, Joel Edgerton, and Noomi Rapace. It was directed by Fury’s David Ayer and was written by the one and only Max Landis.

The star power and talent in this, straight to Netflix, release is incredible and I think it only bodes well for the future of the streaming service giant.

The description for the film is as follows,“Set in a world where mystical creatures live side by side with humans. A human cop is forced to work with an Orc to find a weapon everyone is prepared to kill for. “

Lucas Film gives us a new glimpse of The Young Han Solo cast in a new photo!

The Disney marketing machine has been around for a while and they know a thing or two about keeping people engaged in their upcoming projects. Today they released a new image highlighting the cast for the new Star Wars spin off based on the adventures of a young Han Solo.

Seeing everybody together finally is exciting! There is a wonderful team behind and in front of the camera for this one, so here’s to hoping they bring us a magical experience in a galaxy far away next year!

Donald Glover and James Earl Jones join the cast of The Lion King

It looks like Disney is keeping a lot of their upcoming projects “in the family”. Disney owns LucasFilm who has always had James Earl Jones at their side voicing Darth Vader. More recently they’ve cast Donald Glover as a younger version of Lando in the upcoming Star Wars spin off Han Solo film.

With the success of the recent live action Jungle Book, Disney has decided to give the classic Lion King the same treatment.  It’s pretty great that they’ve decided to bring James Earl Jones back to voice Mufasa again but also pretty great they’ve decided to have Donald Glover be Simba. (I’m guessing JTT was just too busy to take on the role of Simba again)

I think this is great casting and I’m excited to see what Jon Favreau has up his sleeves for this live action adaptation.

First look at Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Force Friday Promo Material)

Force Friday is what Disney and LucasFilm have officially dubbed as the launch of their Star Wars merchandise marketing campaign., which focuses namely on toys, books, clothing, etc. The last few years it’s launched in September, ramping up the the eventual release of the films in December.

It looks like we have our first look at what will be some type of box/case that will contain toys or books perhaps. The important thing to note here is that we have our three main heroes with just enough differences to set them apart from the previous film, namely Rey.

First off, she’s holding a light saber and looking pretty rad I might add. Poe and Finn look similar, however it’s reassuring to know that they will still be big parts of this second installment.
