BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Considering that the first two Iron Man films were directed by Jon Favreau, and he was essentially the first director to lead the MCU, you’d think he would have returned for more directing projects as the Marvel world got bigger.
Jon Favreau doesn't seem to believe in the notion that the cinematic superhero genre could eventually run out of steam and die.
It seems like decades ago know that the Marvel Cinematic Universe began. They’ve accomplished so much that it’s difficult to believe that the first Iron Man movie was only released in 2008. Jon Favreau remembers, because he was there.
Jon Favreau has admitted that he's still involved in a very creative capacity with Marvel Studios. In fact, he's speaking to Avengers: Infinity War's director Joe and Anthony Russo on a daily basis.
Over the decades, it’s possible no single company has been able to build its own fan base to the degree that that Disney has. They’ve been running for so many generations that now the people who became fans as children have grown up and become filmmakers in their own right.
It’s not exactly hard to see why most children will put “movie star” on their list of dream jobs. It’s a pretty glamorous gig that opens doors to all kinds of wild adventures and opportunities, not to mention gives you time with incredibly talented and famous individuals.
Luckily for The Jungle Book, it looks as though money won’t be in short supply during its theatrical run, as the film is currently looking to score an astronomical opening weekend.
Digging into their long history of animated classics, Disney has begun to create a series of live-action remakes, so far including Maleficent, Cinderella and The Jungle Book. This is a specialized franchise in its own right, but could we ever see them united to form a cohesive cinematic universe?
Disney seems to have so much faith in Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book that they have already begun talks to have the director helm an upcoming sequel.
Despite commentaries being a common extra included in movie home media releases, one blockbuster that didn’t get one was 2008’s Iron Man. Here’s why.
Disney’s >The Jungle Book hits theaters next week, and while it is based on a family friendly animated feature, early reviews have stated that the film is significantly more dramatic than its cartoon counterpart.
Since late 2010, Jon Favreau has been attached to direct Disney’s Magic Kingdom - a film where one of the company’s theme parks comes to life – but the project hasn’t exactly been barreling through the stages of production.
When Disney dropped our first good look at what’s to come in Jon Favreau’s live-action Jungle Book at the D23 Expo, we were left with our jaws dropped. Well now, they’ve given us even more to get excited about, as they just shared the first footage into the stunning jungle setting of the upcoming feature.
Earlier today, we showcased the first ever poster for Jon Favreau’s upcoming The Jungle Book, which gave us a close-up look at the brand new live-action versions of some truly legendary literary characters. That, however, is not the full extent of the preview that we received this morning, as Disney showed off an entire sizzle reel from the 2016 blockbuster.
It’s been a long while since we’ve heard anything on the front of Jon Favreau’s upcoming live-action Jungle Book. But today at Disney’s Live-Action panel at D23 Expo, the studio revealed a better look at the upcoming feature, including the story’s two protagonists and unlikely friends, Mowgli and Bagheera the panther.
As it turns out, super producer Brian Grazer has one movie in his distinguished career that he wishes he never got involved with: Cowboys & Aliens.
Ever since director Josh Trank exited his upcoming Star Wars Anthology film early last month, fans of the legendary franchise have been wondering who the Walt Disney Company and the folks at LucasFilm would recruit to take his place. Two strong candidates for the gig may be none other than Jon Favreau and Matthew Vaughn.
Jon Favreau has previously stated that he does not want to completely replicate the animated Jungle Book, he has promised that Bill Murray will sing Baloo’s famous song.
Jon Favreau’s upcoming big budget Disney film, The Jungle Book has just released its first official concept art photo featuring Mowgli and Bagheera the panther.
Poor Jon Favreau. Not only was he replaced by Shane Black as Iron Man 3’s director but it has now been revealed that his character, Happy Hogan, was originally supposed to die in the blockbuster. Thankfully the studio had a change of heart and decided that Happy would end up in a coma instead.
