  • Benedict Cumberbatch is Shere Khan in first trailer for dark take on The Jungle Book

The first trailer for Mowgli has landed, and this interpretation of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book knows exactly what it is. I believe there is room for Serkis' take on Mowgli's story, the film looks good as well as having an all-star cast.

"We wanted to engage much more closely with the tone of the book", says Serkis.

The trailer introduces the title character, played by Rohan Chand, a human child who is raised by a pack of wolves in the jungles of India. Of course, Benedict Cumberbatch's villainous portrayal of Shere Khan seems equally as engaging, as there's a serious menace in his voice and characterization onscreen. The trailer begins with Mowgli in a cage, probably captured by humans living in villages nearby to the jungle. It's a cast that includes Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Benedict Cumberbatch, Naomie Harris and Matthew Rhys they relied on none other than the master of motion capture himself, Andy Serkis to bring this take on the story to life.

About Cate Blanchett playing Kaa, Serkis said, "She is an ancient soul of the jungle".

"We'd start off with the image of one of our actors, say Christian Bale, and then the image of a panther that we were heading towards", Serkis explained. It's devoid of the comic-tone we see in the 2016 Jungle Book.

Why people want Vedanta plant closed
Over 4,000 police personnel have been moved to Tuticorin , Tamil Nadu from nearby districts to bring the situation under control. As protestors started pelting stones enroute, police had to use mild lathi-charge to disperse the crowd and also teargas.

Unlike The Jungle Book, wherein the movie retold the tale of how Mowgli adapted to the jungle, Mowgli attempts to tell the lesser shared story about what happens after he becomes a part of the green land.

Rohan Chand plays the role of Mowgli. In the Planet of the Apes films, features from Serkis's performance-captured face were worked into Caesar's visage.

MOWGLI will hit screens in cinemas on October 18th, 2018. Serkis will be voicing Baloo in Mowgli.

But what I told you, times have changed?

Unlike the more musical adaptations by Disney, Mowgli is set to be a much more serious and realistic take on the tale and much more faithful to the source material.
