Here's The First Mowgli Trailer

Ever wished The Jungle Book was as dark and foreboding as, well, the jungle should be? Then Andy Serkis' Mowgli might be right up your alley.

That's the idea behind the first trailer, anyway. Beyond Serkis' talents, there's plenty of star power behind this new, gritty take on the Kipling story: Benedith Cumberbatch, Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett are all featuring. And besides directing, Andy Serkis is also voicing Baloo.

Mowgli is due to hit Aussie theatres on October 18.


    The Disney version was interesting and neither version would *dare* to tackle to colonialist aspects the original Kipling tale told... however this one, this looks like it's going for more of the original themes rather than the watered down original. It'll be definitely interesting to see?

      I really should read that book at some point.

      The earliest version I've seen is the original film with Sabu.

    Another one....again....?

      I don't understand how anyone can see this IP crop up and give a shit.
