Coming Soon Trailers: Dumbo, The Beach Bum.

Coming Soon Trailers: Dumbo, The Beach Bum.
At least this “live action” film has, you know, live people. Looking at you, Lion King…

It begins.  The flood gate of Disney remakes is officially cranked all the way open as Dumbo arrives, the first of three live action adaptations the Mouse has scheduled this year.  If seeing Tim Burton muck around with another Disney project is not to your liking, maybe Matthew McConaughey being Matthew McConaughey is up your alley.  I know.  Both this week’s offerings made our least anticipated list.

If you want another option, the home market serves up eight new films.  For Netflix subscribers, three new offerings hit the service, including a star studded crime drama and a visually alluring family drama.
