Check Out These New Aladdin Character Posters

The time is quickly approaching and anticipation is growing higher for the upcoming live-action adaptation of the acclaimed 1992 Disney classic Aladdin and the studio has just released four new posters highlighting each of the four main iconic characters.

Two-time Oscar nominee Will Smith (Ali, Men in Black) stars as the Genie in the new film alongside Mena Massoud (Amazon’s Jack Ryan) as Aladdin, the hapless but lovable street rat who is smitten with the Sultan’s daughter. Naomi Scott (Power Rangers) stars as Princess Jasmine, the Sultan’s beautiful daughter who wants to have a say in how she lives her life with Marwan Kenzari (Murder on the Orient Express) as Jafar, an evil sorcerer who devises a nefarious plot to unseat the Sultan and rule Agrabah himself.

Aladdin also stars Navid Negahban (Homeland) as the Sultan, Nasim Pedrad (Saturday Night Live) as Dalia, Billy Magnussen (Into the Woods) as Prince Anders, and Numan Acar (Homeland) as Hakim, Jafar’s right-hand man and head of the palace guards. In addition, Wreck-It Ralph‘s Alan Tudyk has also signed on to voice Jafar’s iconic parrot sidekick Iago.

Aladdin is directed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes, The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) from a screenplay by John August (Dark Shadows, Big Fish) based on the 1992 animated film Aladdin and stories from “One Thousand and One Nights.” The producer is Dan Lin (The LEGO Movie) with Golden Globe winner Marc Platt (La La Land), Jonathan Eirich (Death Note) and Kevin De La Noy (The Dark Knight Rises) serving as executive producers. Eight-time Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid) provides the score, which includes new recordings of the original songs written by Menken and Oscar-winning lyricists Howard Ashman (Little Shop of Horrors) and Tim Rice (The Lion King) as well as two new songs written by Menken and Oscar and Tony Award-winning songwriters Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, Dear Evan Hansen).

Aladdin was nominated for five Academy Awards and won two, including Best Original Score and Best Original Song for “A Whole New World.” Based on the Middle-Eastern folktale Aladdin and the Magic Lamp, the 1992 animated film was co-directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, who had previously-directed The Little Mermaid and would go on to make other Disney classics, including Hercules, Treasure Planet, The Princess and the Frog, and Moana. It famously featured Robin Williams as the film’s genie, along with Scott Weinger as Aladdin, Jonathan Freeman as Jafar, Linda Larkin as Princess Jasmine, Frank Welker as Aladdin’s monkey pal Abu, plus Douglas Seale as The Sultan, and Gilbert Gottfried as Iago.

The film is set to debut in theaters May 24.

Captain Marvel Takes Us Back To The ’90s With Magic Eye-Style Posters

Marvel Studios has been promoting the ’90s setting of Captain Marvel via the film’s trailers and its rudimentary throwback website.

Now, via the Marvel Twitter account, the studio has come up with another way to stir up ’90s nostalgia for fans by releasing a series of Magic Eye-style posters.

Marvel released five posters in a series of Tweets, with each one featuring a different autostereogram. Autostereograms allow some people to see 3D images by focusing on 2D patterns. They were popular as posters and books in the ‘90s. For those frustrated people like me who could never see the hidden images, the Captain Marvel collection of posters includes hidden images of a bust of Carol Danvers with her mohawk, a pair of aviator sunglasses, and the eight-pointed star symbol.

Rare 1932 Poster For ‘The Mummy’ Expected To Fetch Over $1 Million At Sotheby’s Auction

Inspired by the opening of Tutankhamun’s tomb just a decade earlier, 1932’s The Mummy starring Boris Karloff was one of the three early horror releases for Universal that set the tone for the genre. 

Now an extremely rare movie poster for The Mummy could become the most expensive in the world after it goes up for auction from Sothebys. The auction house expects the poster to fetch anywhere from $1 million to as much as $1.5 million. Just three original posters for The Mummy are believed to still exist. The other two are in the hands of private collectors, including one that’s owned by Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett. This rare original stone lithograph was designed by Universal advertising art director Karoly Groszis and is considered one of the most prized film posters in existence.

The poster for The Mummy last sold at auction for $453,500 in 1997. It was the most expensive movie poster ever sold and held that title until 2014 when a 1927 poster for London After Midnight broke The Mummy’s record selling for $478,000. The current record holder is a 1931 poster for Dracula, which sold for $525,800 last year.

Teen Titans GO! To The Movies Poster Parodies Justice League

Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted a new poster for the upcoming Teen Titans GO! to the Movies, and with it they lampoon their own film from last year, Justice League. 

The animated film will feature the voice cast of the series, including Greg Cipes as Beast Boy, Scott Menville as Robin, Khary Payton as Cyborg, Tara Strong as Raven, and Hynden Walch as Starfire. In the film, they reprise their roles from the Cartoon Network series, which follows the crime fighting adventures and antics of the young Super Hero roommates. Will Arnett (The LEGO Batman Movie) and Kristen Bell (Frozen) have also joined the voice cast.

When the Teen Titans go to the big screen, they go big! Teen Titans GO! to the Movies finds our egocentric, wildly satirical Super Heroes in their first feature film extravaganza—a fresh, gleefully clever, kid-appropriately crass and tongue-in-cheek play on the superhero genre, complete with musical numbers. It seems to the Teens that all the major superheroes out there are starring in their own movies—everyone but the Teen Titans, that is! But de facto leader Robin is determined to remedy the situation, and be seen as a star instead of a sidekick. If only they could get the hottest Hollywood film director to notice them. With a few madcap ideas and a song in their heart, the Teen Titans head to Tinsel Town, certain to pull off their dream. But when the group is radically misdirected by a seriously super villain and his maniacal plan to take over the Earth, things really go awry. The team finds their friendship and their fighting spirit failing, putting the very fate of the Teen Titans themselves on the line!

The film is directed by Aaron Horvath and Peter Rida Michail, from a screenplay by Michael Jelenic and Horvath, based on characters from DC. Michail, Will Arnett and Peggy Regan are producing, with Sam Register, Jelenic and Horvath serving as executive producers. Apart from Arnett, all are Teen Titans GO! series contributors.

Set to hit theaters on July 27, Teen Titans GO! to the Movies will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
