Paramount Pictures presented upcoming movies like 'Ben-Hur' to theater owners as an initiative called the Screening Room, which would allow movie watchers to watch new releases at home, seemed to be on the minds of many.
Actress Nyong'o portrays Raksha, Mowgli's adoptive wolf mother, in the live-action remake of 'Jungle,' which is directed by Jon Favreau. 'As a woman, I think we all have it somewhere in us and it was about finding it,' she said.
'Miles' stars actor Don Cheadle, who also directs and co-writes, as Miles Davis. As a writer-director, Cheadle spends so much time exhibiting Davis in various states of dissolution that his art becomes a sidelight.
'Batman' features the return of Henry Cavill as Superman and the debut of Ben Affleck as Batman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. The film hurtles with an operatic grandeur it sometimes earns and often doesn't.
In 'Blue,' actor Ethan Hawke portrays West Coast trumpeter jazz legend Chet Baker. The movie is strange, but at its best it belongs in the same unconventional continuum as fellow music movies 'I’m Not There' and 'Love and Mercy.'
