On April 15, audiences will witness the live-action reimagining of Walt Disney's THE JUNGLE BOOK, a new telling of Rudyard Kipling's classic tale, inspired by the 1967 animated film. Today comes a brand-new clip, an "Intro to Shere Khan," the villainous tiger (voiced by Idris Elba) with eyes on Mowgli (Neel Sethi). Next month, I will be heading to Los Angeles to attend the film's red carpet premiere, and to meet with and interview the filmmakers and cast. Stay tuned for more on that shortly...

On the first-ever episode of Disney Infinity NEXT, the makers of Disney Infinity 3.0 made a promise that the lifecycle of the 3.0 Starter Packs would be extended, and that there will be more content than ever coming to Disney Infinity this year. Just-announced is the MARVEL Battlegrounds Play Set (out March 15), which brings the brawling genre into Disney Infinity for the very first time. All that and more can be seen in the Spring 2016 edition of Disney Infinity NEXT...

Among the many things I detest about the NFL (and football in general) is the iron-fisted approach to "Super Bowl" advertising in which so many have to resort to "Big Game" to avoid paying "big prices."

When I think of Jon Favreau, I tend to think of his acting turns in films like Hart Bochner's PCU and Doug Liman's SWINGERS, followed by his directorial/acting work on smaller films like MADE (my wife and I had to seek out a theater for that one on opening weekend) or last year's excellent CHEF. I always tend to forget that it was Favreau that helmed ELF and the first two IRON MAN movies, and then it all makes sense that Disney put him behind the lens for their live-action reimagining of THE JUNGLE BOOK. As a fan of the original animated feature (reviewed here), I didn't really have a ton of interest in seeing it get a flesh-and-blood (and CGI) re-do, but after seeing the first teaser trailer, I'm on-board.
