Speaking of epic, Andy Serkis has released the first trailer for his version of Jungle Book's MOWGLI which is out this October following a human child
raised by wolves, which must face off against a menacing tiger named Shere Khan, as well as his own origins. Cate Blanchett lends her voice to snake Kaa, Benedict Cumberbatch is evil tiger Shere Khan, Andy Serkis is Baloo the bear, Christian Bale is panther Bagheera, with Jack Reynor, Tom Hollander, Matthew Rhys, Eddie Marsan, Peter Mullan, Freida Pinto, also in the super stellar voice cast of the upcoming adventure. This version will be darker and more serious than the previous ones and certainly much more so than the beloved book by Rudyard Kipling. The actors don't just lend their voices but also play their characters in action capture technique.
