MOWGLI – Official 1st Trailer

Watch the new trailer for #Mowgli starring Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Freida Pinto. Only in theaters October 19.

Motion capture and live action are blended for “Mowgli,” a new, big-screen, 3D adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s classic The Jungle Book. The film features an impressive roster of stars under the direction of Andy Serkis.

The story follows the upbringing of the human child Mowgli, raised by a wolf pack in the jungles of India. As he learns the often harsh rules of the jungle, under the tutelage of a bear named Baloo and a panther named Bagheera, Mowgli becomes accepted by the animals of the jungle as one of their own. All but one: the fearsome tiger Shere Khan. But there may be greater dangers lurking in the jungle, as Mowgli comes face to face with his human origins.

The actors performing the roles of the story’s central animal characters are: Oscar winner Christian Bale (“The Fighter,” the “Dark Knight” Trilogy) as the cunning panther, Bagheera; Oscar winner Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine,” “The Aviator”) as the sinister snake, Kaa; Oscar nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (“The Imitation Game,” “Avengers: Infinity War”) as the fearsome tiger, Shere Khan; Oscar nominee Naomie Harris (“Moonlight,” “Skyfall”) as Nisha, the female wolf, who adopts the baby Mowgli as one of her cubs; and Andy Serkis (the “Planet of the Apes” trilogy, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”) as the wise bear, Baloo. On the human side, Matthew Rhys (“The Post”) is Lockwood; Freida Pinto (“Knight of Cups”) is Messua; and young actor Rohan Chand (“The Hundred-Foot Journey,” “Bad Words”) will play Mowgli, the boy raised by wolves.

Rounding out the cast are Peter Mullan (“Tommy’s Honour”), as the leader of the wolf pack, Akela; Jack Reynor (“Transformers: Age of Extinction”), as Mowgli’s brother Wolf; Eddie Marsan (TV’s “Ray Donovan”), as Nisha’s mate, Vihaan; and Tom Hollander (“Breathe”) as the scavenging hyena, Tabaqui.

“Mowgli” is produced by Steve Kloves (“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”), Jonathan Cavendish (“Breathe,” performance capture producer on “Godzilla”), and David Barron (the “Harry Potter” films), with Nikki Penny serving as executive producer. The screenplay is by Kloves’ daughter, Callie Kloves.

Serkis’s creative filmmaking team includes director of photography Michael Seresin (“War for the Planet of the Apes”), production designer Gary Freeman (“Tomb Raider”) and editors Mark Sanger (Oscar winner, “Gravity”), Alex Marquez (“Snowden”) and Jeremiah O’Driscoll (“Flight”). The music is composed by Nitin Sawhney (“Breathe”).

  6. WC Daily says:

    The Best Logic-Full Movie of the Jungle Book with best Special Effects, Graphics, crew and cast. Infact WB was the first to announce the Jungle Book movie and to make it,but Disney joined later to make crap illogical movie, So WB Postponed it later for 2-4 years. With Andy Serkis as Director is a master stroke for the film, who himself the master of Motion Capturing act.

    Finally a real movie based on the book and not the shit musical made by Disney

    *So dark are you sure you’re not from the DC universe ?*

    • CoreZeroPH says:

      Warner Bros. just went full on troll mode. They’re gonna fight Disney by releasing “dark” versions of Disney adaptations. And of course DC will continue to be the “dark” comic-book movies.

    • ThaLiveKing says:

      GOTG2 was darker than Infinity War

    • Matt Pribble says:

      Deadpool is fucking overrated

    • syafiqjabar says:

      It’s also a joke about Marvel not being different from DC, since Cable was from the 1990s and every comic book was EXTREME and gritty back then. Marvel was probably more infamous for it.

    • Narendra Martosudarmo says:

      UserInterface00 This time, Batman is the Black Panther.

  9. Brandon Croker says:

    This is gonna be amazing! Bagheera seems to be my favorite. Rohan is also gonna be a great Mowgli from the looks of things.

  10. JaxBlade says:

    I can’t wait for the VS debates of this vs the 2016 jungle book. Wouldn’t that be some sh*t if this blew that one out of the water. I know people LOVE being hyperbolic with comments on the internet but honestly I’ll wait and see, I’m interested.

  11. Peter Frank says:

    I don’t care if it’s going to be dark, as long as it’s good. Disney’s adaption is light-hearted and it was pretty good too.

  12. Peter Frank says:

    2016’s ‘ The Jungle Book’ — Starring Trevor Slattery, Heimdall, Nakia, Happy Hogan and the Black Widow.

    2018’s ‘Mowgli’ — Starring Hela, Doctor Strange, Ulysses Klaue and Bruce Wayne.

  13. Chico the Human says:

    This seems like the film itself is going to be better than the original, but I definitely prefer the more realistic Disney animation style.

  14. Sean Dewar says:

    Looks Great, happy that they’re making adaptations of the book instead of the disney movie.

    Only problem i have are the animal’s faces to me look a bit… off…. especially Bagheera, Shere Kahn and Kaa… idk could probably just me comparing them to the design of the 2015 remake…

    EDIT: also having Tabaqi look like a Hyena instead of a Golden Jackal…

  15. SR S says:

    I love Moghli character,Bageera,Balu,Share Khan,😎😎😉😉😃😃

  16. The Night Fury says:

    Is no one here gonna talk about how freaking weird but terrifying Kaa looks? I mean, damn :O


      Cate Blanchett will be a great Kaa even better than Johansen.

    • The Night Fury says:

      I mean, the voice defineitly sounds more aggressive and scarier than the 2016 Kaa. I just hope she gets more screentime in this movie.

    • theatergeek82 says:

      I agree I thought she sound more aggressive in this version

    • RS 09 says:

      ScarJo sounded way too sexy in that version of Kaa. As someone who hates snakes, I never feared that version of Kaa, I was just like “Oh, ScarJo’s here, cool”

  17. Erwin Wibowo says:

    Remake ,remake and remake….

    I just need lion king

  18. Luq Waffle says:

    I hope this is better than Jungle Book

  19. Keshav Bhatt says:
