Hollywood

Soul

Pixar's Soul sees Jamie Foxx voice a middle school jazz teacher with performance ambitions who still dreams of his big break. When a manhole accident nearly takes his life, he enters a netherworld of unborn souls on their way to earth. It is a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks, and interests before they go to Earth.

Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious baby soul, 22 (voiced by Tina Fey), who has never understood the appeal of the human experience. As Joe desperately tries to show 22 what is great about living, he may "just discover the answers to some of life’s most important questions.”

Greyhound

Greyhound, directed by Aaron Schneider, and starring Tom Hanks, is based on the 1955 novel The Good Shepherd by CS Forester. Hanks, who also serves as the screenwriter on the project, plays the role of a US Navy Commander on his first war-time assignment in command of a multi-national escort group.

The official film synopsis reads, “US Navy Commander Ernest Krause is assigned to lead an Allied convoy across the Atlantic during World War II. His convoy, however, is pursued by German U-boats. Although this is Krause’s first wartime mission, he finds himself embroiled in what would come to be known as the longest, largest and most complex naval battle in history: The Battle of the Atlantic.”

Greyhound is slated to release in June.

Jungle Cruise

Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt are on a quest for the secret to eternal life in the early 20th Century in Disney’s new trailer of Jungle Cruise.

In footage released last week, Blunt’s researcher Dr Lily Houghton explains why she has hired Johnson’s character to pilot her through the jungle on his ramshackle riverboat. The trailer shows the pair surviving piranhas, an underwater dive, explosions, sword fights and snakes.

The movie is slated to release on 24 July.
