'Jungle Book' Trailer Bows During Super Bowl
Super Bowl 50 watchers on Sunday got a brand-new look at The Jungle Book.
A clip of the action-packed trailer, the second for the film, aired during the game's first half, directing viewers to view the full trailer online. Viewers with ultra-high-definition TVs got a glimpse of what the 3D version of the pic will look like as animals jumped out of the screen in the UHD version.
The full trailer introduces Bill Murray as Baloo the bear, Christopher Walken as King Louie the orangutan and Ben Kingsley as Bagheera the black panther when Mowgli (Neel Sethi) runs through a jungle filled with spectacular CGI creatures.
Disney's new live-action adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's classic books was directed by Jon Favreau. Actors lending their voices to the movie also include Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong'o and Idris Elba. The Jungle Book (one of two projects in the pipeline, with Warner Bros' Jungle Book: Origins scheduled for 2017) will be released in theaters April 15 in 3D and Imax 3D.
Super Bowl 50, which featured the Denver Broncos against the Carolina Panthers at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., aired on CBS.
