With huge superhero movies like Avengers: Infinity War, Deadpool 2, The Incredibles 2, and Ant-Man & The Wasp taking up much of the summer schedule, Disney’s Christopher Robin wasn’t on my radar at all. Thanks to a newly released trailer though, that has now changed drastically.
The first teaser for Disney’s live-action Winnie the Pooh film Christopher Robin tickled that nostalgia itch for some, while leaving others cold. This new trailer, on the other hand, melted even the most cynical of hearts and won me over. Take a look at the new trailer for Christopher Robin below:
Even if the CGI is a bit wonky in a few places, the film has plenty of time to smooth that out befor it hits theaters later this summer. The Alice in Wonderland vibe I get from it seems like a great way to continue the timeless story of Pooh. 2011’s Winnie the Pooh was a critical darling, a wonderful film if I don’t say so myself, but sadly it didn’t make much of a dent at the box office at all. As someone who has a lot of nostalgic memories dedicated to Winnie the Pooh, this trailer got me wrap back on the Winnie the Pooh train, which isn’t what I was expecting from a live-action adaptation. In a time where Disney is doing a lot of live-action adaptations of their properties, which vary in quality, it seemed tired to do it with Pooh. That being said, it seems that the creative team behind the film actually had a solid idea of where to take the characters.
What did you think of the new Christopher Robin trailer? Let us know in the comments below!
In the heartwarming live action adventure “Disney’s Christopher Robin,” the young boy who embarked on countless adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with his band of spirited and lovable stuffed animals, has grown up and lost his way. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside.
Christopher Robin is stuck in a job where he is overworked, underpaid and facing an uncertain future. He has a family of his own, but his work has become his life, leaving little time for his wife and daughter, and he has all but forgotten his idyllic childhood spent with a simple-minded, honey-loving stuffed bear and his friends. But when he is reunited with Winnie the Pooh, now tattered and soiled from years of hugs and play, a spark is rekindled, and he is reminded of the endless days of childlike wonder and make believe that defined his youth, when doing nothing could be considered something. Following an unfortunate mishap with Christopher Robin’s briefcase, Pooh and the rest of the gang including Piglet, Eeyore and Tigger, step out of the forest and into London to return the crucial possessions…because best friends will always be there for you.
Directed by Marc Forster, Christopher Robin and stars Ewan McGregor, Hayley Atwell, Bronte Carmichael, Mark Gatiss and features the voice talents of Jim Cummings, Chris O’Dowd, Brad Garrett, Toby Jones, Nick Mohammed, Peter Capaldi and Sophie Okonedo.
Disney’s Christopher Robin will be released in theaters on August 3, 2018.
10 Actors Who Could Play Indiana Jones After Harrison Ford
Indiana Jones is one of the most iconic figures in movies. He has had four big screen cinematic adventures with a fifth one on the horizon currently set for release on July 10, 2020, marking the last time Harrison Ford wears the iconic fedora.
Director Steven Spielberg has already talked about how the next Indiana Jones could be a woman. The reaction to this news was met with the immediate dismissal that normally comes to recasting an iconic character and typically made worse when someone even makes the mere suggestion of race or gender bending a role. A large amount of this backlash comes from the simple fact that to a good portion of fans it is hard to separate Harrison Ford from the part. Just look at how hard it is for audiences to accept Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo.
Yet unlike Han Solo, it shouldn’t be too difficult for people to imagine another Indiana Jones because we’ve already seen other versions of the character. River Phoenix, Corey Carrier and Sean Patrick Flanery have all portrayed younger incarnations of the character and George Hall played a 90-year-old version of the character. There is a precedent for another actor playing Indiana Jones.
It is highly unlikely Disney will let this brand go. The studio could continue the franchise similarly to Star Wars: The Force Awakens or Creed, doing a midquel set between Last Crusade and Crystal Skull or even a reboot of the franchise. The possibilities are endless. But for now, take at look ten performers that Disney and Lucasfilm should consider as next Indiana Jones. Click Next to get started!
