Watch The Dumbo International Trailer

Walt Disney Pictures has released a new international trailer for director Tim Burton’s live-action Dumbo. Featuring new footage from the film, the video also highlights the first meeting between the main characters and the adorable titular elephant.

From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure Dumbo expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus.

But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.

Directed by Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) from a screenplay by Ehren Kruger (Ophelia, Dream House), the film is set to take flight on March 29.

Watch The New Missing Link Trailer

Annapurna Pictures and LAIKA have released the all-new Missing Link trailer! The animated film stars Hugh Jackman (The Greatest Showman) as Sir Lionel Frost, Zoe Saldana (Guardians of the Galaxy) as Adelina Fortnight and Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover) as the lovable titular monster.

In the film, Zach Galifianakis is Mr. Link: the slightly silly, surprisingly smart and soulful beast who is the last living remnant of Man’s primitive ancestry, the Missing Link. As species go, he couldn’t be more endangered; he’s the last of his kind and he’s lonely. Proposing a daring quest to find his rumored distant relatives, he enlists the help of Sir Lionel Frost, the world’s foremost investigator of myths and monsters, and Adelina Fortnight, who possesses the only known map to the group’s secret destination, in an odyssey around the world to find the fabled valley of Shangri-La.

Bursting with humor, heart, and a profound message of acceptance and finding one’s place, Missing Link is written and directed by Oscar nominee Chris Butler (ParaNorman). LAIKA’s head of production and Oscar nominee Arianne Sutner (ParaNorman, Kubo and the Two Strings) is producing with Knight, who earned an Academy Award nomination and BAFTA win for his directorial debut on Kubo.

The voice cast also includes award-winning actors from all corners of the world, such as Oscar winner Emma Thompson (Sense and Sensibility), Stephen Fry (The Hobbit), Timothy Olyphant (Justified), Matt Lucas (Alice In Wonderland), David Walliams (Little Britain), Amrita Acharia (Game of Thrones), and Ching Valdes-Aran (Nurse Jackie).

Missing Link will debut in theaters on April 19.

The Karate Kid Returning To Theaters For Its 35th Anniversary

In honor of its 35th anniversary, The Karate Kid is returning to movie theaters for two days only as presented by Fathom Events. The film will screen in participating theaters nationwide on Sunday, March 31 and Tuesday, April 2.

A huge hit from summer 1984, The Karate Kid stars Ralph Macchio as Daniel, a bullied teen who learns karate from Mr. Miyagi (Pat Morita), an elderly handyman who is also a martial arts master. He teaches Johnny that karate is about more than fighting, a vital life lesson that comes into play when Daniel faces off against Johnny, the leader of a vicious gang of karate school bullies known as Cobra Kai. Morita was nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his work in the film. Elisabeth Shue and William Zabka also star in the John G. Avildsen film.

The Karate Kid is looking better than ever restored from the original camera negative to a stunning 4k presentation. This restoration will also be available on 4k Ultra HD from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment on April 16 following the film’s return to the big screen. This 4k UHD release also includes a new anniversary featurette, “Remembering the Karate Kid,” featuring interviews with Macchio, Zabka, and Martin Kove.

Diehard fans of The Karate Kid will get an extra treat at the movie theater showings of the film — an exclusive sneak preview of season two of YouTube Original series Cobra Kai will screen as part of the festivities. Last year, Macchio and Zabka reunited for the first season of the new TV series, in which Daniel opens his own karate studio, Miyagi-Do, to face off against old arch-rivals Cobra Kai.

Tickets for the film’s cinematic return will be available beginning Feb. 15 on the Fathom Events website or at participating theater box offices. The 4k Ultra HD release will be available beginning April 16.

Watch The Toy Story 4 Super Bowl Ad

Disney and Pixar have released the Toy Story 4 Super Bowl spot as Woody, Buzz, and Bo-Peep head to the carnival!

Woody and the rest of the toys are back for an all-new adventure in Toy Story 4, welcoming new friends to Bonnie’s room, including a reluctant new toy called Forky. But Forky insists that he is NOT a toy! An actual spork-turned-craft-project, Forky is pretty sure that he doesn’t belong in Bonnie’s room. Unfortunately, every time he tries to get away, someone yanks him back into an adventure he’d rather skip.

Woody’s journey in Toy Story 4 also includes a visit to a carnival where he meets Ducky and Bunny, two carnival prizes who are eager to be won. But when their plans are rudely interrupted by Woody and his friends, they find themselves on an unexpected adventure with a group of toys who have no idea what it feels like to be tacked to a prize wall.

Keanu Reeves, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele join newcomer Tony Hale in the voice cast alongside returning cast members Tim Allen, Tom Hanks, Annie Potts, Patricia Arquette and Joan Cusack.

Toy Story 4 will open on June 21, 2019.
