Watch The New Trailer For Disney’s Live Action Remake Of ‘Mulan’

Disney has given us a slew of live-action remakes that have been remarkable such as “The Jungle Book”, “Beauty and the Beast”, “Dumbo” and “The Lion King” to name a few and now we can look forward to the upcoming remake of “Mulan”. The new trailer for the upcoming film show’s our favorite Disney warrior “Mulan” who is more than determined to fulfill her destiny and win over our hearts. The film was shot in both China and New Zealand and the scenery looks absolutely amazing. Mulan is played by Liu Yifei, aka Crystal Liu, a star of the big screen in China. Just like in the 1998 cartoon version of the story, her character is engaged to be married but decides to join the army instead, against the will of her family and the orders of the emperor, played by Jet Li. Mulan disguises herself as a man to defend her people against the Hun invasion. The film is being directed by Niki Caro, who was hired by Disney following the success of Whale Rider and The Zookeeper’s Wife. …

While we are just now beginning to finally get our emotions together after the conclusion of “Avengers: Endgame”, Marvel has now given us the first trailer for the highly-anticipated “Black Widow” film. Disney/Marvel unveiled the trailer for the film which fans of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) have been clamoring for since the Black Widow character, played by actress Scarlett Johansson, was first introduced ten years ago in “Iron Man 2”. The “Black Widow” film will mark the start of Phase 4 for the MCU and is slated for release on May 1, 2020. Without being an original story, the film will follow Natasha Romanoff into the traces of her past as a former KGB member. She will have to return to where she was trained, meet up with former colleagues and a sister, Yelena, who in the comic has already taken over the Black Widow character, so perhaps now we will figure out why!

Colin Farrell Rumored To Be In Negotiations To Play Penguin In Upcoming ‘Batman’ Film

We can hardly contain our excitement for all the casting news and rumors that are popping up for Matt Reeve’s upcoming “Batman” film. We have now learned that actor Colin Farrell is rumored to be in negotiations to portray Penguin in the film. It is also rumored that actor Andy Serkis will be taking on the role of Alfred. If casting works out then these two will be joining Robert Pattinson as Batman, Zoë Kravitz as Catwoman, Paul Dano as Mystery Man and Jeffrey Wright as Commissioner Gordon. Filming is scheduled to start at the end of the year or in early 2020. We can only imagine that this remarkable cast will continue to grow and we certainly hope that negotiations will be worked out with both Farrell and Serkis as they will be excellent additions to this star-studded cast. It will be fantastic to see Farrell in the role of a villain once again, as we have not seen that side of him since his role in “Daredevil” opposite Ben Affleck.

But when they attempt to anonymously intercede in their lives, they unwittingly set in motion a chain of events that will lead to disaster. “We live in a strange era where it is entirely socially acceptable to peer into the lives of complete strangers by looking at the manicured and cultivated version of the lives, they’d like us to think they lead.  With The Voyeurs, we’re asking a simple question: is it okay to watch?  I’m thrilled to be working with Amazon Studios to bring back the erotic thriller genre …
