I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Jungle Book and Pete's Dragon, so I might watch it, but Tim Burton has been terrible for 20ish years now, so I can't say I'm too excited.

Oh, and his Alice in Wonderland was fucking awful.
FINE

I liked the look of the trailer, so I'm curious, but still will probably wait to stream it. In general I haven't been able to get excited for any of these live action remakes. I did love Malefecent, but that feels different.

The look of the trailer impressed me in that I expected Tim Burton wouldn't be able to resist making the circus dark and twisted.
While I did enjoy the Beauty and the Beast remake, mostly just for being very pretty, it still felt very very unnecessary. And this does too.

The story of the Jungle Book is public domain. Any studio can make one and try to bum off some of that Disney goodwill.

Andy Serkis' film has been in production for ages, and it's an adaptation of the book not a remake of the animated film, it's just one of those cases of parallel development.

This article is a surreal read.

GQ, 07/09/2018:
Attack on Skull Island
"After the blockbuster success of Kong: Skull Island, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts fled Hollywood to live the expat dream life in Vietnam. Then, one night at a Saigon club, he was brutally beaten by a mysterious mob of gangsters. Who were these monsters? Soon, he began directing something entirely different—an international hunt for the men who nearly killed him."[/quote]

dude survived the setup to an 80's Jean-Claude Van Damme movie.

At one time this movie was slated for a US theatrical release, until it was dropped by its distributor.
