Movies for Readers: The Jungle Book
It's The Jungle Book like you've never seen it, and although some will probably still prefer Disney's cartoon version of the Kipling classic, the studio has done another wonderful job with this version. It's set to be released in the Spring of 2016 and stars the voices of Bill Murray (as Baloo), Scarlett Johansson (as Kaa), Christopher Walken (as King Louie), Ben Kingsley (as Bagheera), Giancarlo Espositio (as Akela), Idris Elba (as Shere Khan), and a bunch more.
I'm not always a fan of how computers are used to make films nowadays, but this one, at least from its trailer, appears to be remarkable. Projected date of release is : April 15, 2016 (and, yes, that's also Tax Day, so you may be looking for a place to escape the pressure on that day anyway).
