Debut Trailer For Tim Burton’s Live-Action Version Of ‘Dumbo’

Published

He was once all about the ‘Big Eyes’. Next year, director Tim Burton will look to put his own distinctive stamp on the baby elephant with the big ears.

The latest in a string of live-action reworks from Disney, we’ve been given a great sneak-peek today at ‘Dumbo’, a character we were first introduced to back in 1941 with its much-loved animated version.

Almost evoking ‘The Greatest Showman’ in its wondrous circus antics. Burton is reunited here with Batman Returns duo Michael Keaton and Danny Devito along with Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children actress Eva Green, with Colin Farrell and Alan Arkin also playing pivotal roles.

‘Dumbo’ is released in March 2019.

‘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.’

Hard-Hitting Trailer For Sundance Hit ‘Blindspotting’ Released

Published

on

A directorial debut which is considered to be a love letter to Oakland, as it intertwines the themes of sincere friendship, gentrification and police brutality into its tightly-woven narrative.

Carlos Lopez Estrada’s ‘Blindspotting’ undoubtedly captured the imagination of the Sundance masses earlier this year, scoring a Grand Jury Prize nomination for its story involving Daveed Diggs’ Collin who has mere hours left on his probation, coupled with the dangerous influence of Rafael Casal’s Miles.

Both Diggs and Casal wrote the screenplay for the film picked up by Lionsgate and on this evidence, it’s shaping up to be a rhythmic and stylish offering, bristling with incisive social commentary.

The film hits the UK on 5th October.
