No one apparently wanted to take on the might of Simba and Disney as Jon Favreau’s remake of The Lion King is the only new wide release this weekend.
This week on the podcast, Zach, Chris and Joe talk about finally getting a director for The Batman, a Nightwing movie, the Stephen King universe, hated character actors, casting Timon and Pumbaa, hipster wilderness survival, Italian Rambo and much more.
Mel Gibson is the front runner for directing Suicide Squad 2, Donald Glover is the new Lion King, Matt Reeves drops out of The Batman, Joe Carnahan is directing a “reimagining” of The Raid and much more in this week’s News Shotgun.
With it’s release tomorrow on Blu Ray and it’s two week domination of the box office, The Lion King is the perfect way to kick off Musical Montage’s “Disney Month”.
It’s another jam packed week of new releases in theaters with the re-release of a Disney classic, a highly anticipated crime thriller, a remake of a controversial 70’s movie and much more.
