Coming Soon Trailers: The Lion King.
Disney’s latest adaptation has theaters all to itself this weekend.
If you’re looking for something new at the cineplex this weekend, I hope you like The Lion King. Disney’s betting big on this “live-action” adaptation, but time will tell if audiences are ready for the third Disney remake in just five months.
If you want to skip the circle of
life remakes, the home market is busy this week. Nine films vie for your attention, including a puppy-based rom com and a Hitler based science fiction flick. That about covers all the bases, I think.
