Hyperborean digital animation meets old-fashioned storytelling in this faithful remake, which loses the songs but brings new, ingenious twists on the original.
What on earth is the point of remaking Walt Disney’s great and possibly greatest masterpiece, the glorious animated musical from 1967, based on Kipling’s tales, all about the “man cub” Mowgli, brought up by wolves in the Indian jungle – famously the last film to get Disney’s personal touch? A remake which furthermore leaves old-fashioned animation behind, departing for the live-action uncanny valley of hypertext CGI, which hermetically loses most of the songs and which also abandons the original’s last, unforgettably exotic glimpse of a real-life human girl?Well, no point really … other than simply to create a terrifically enjoyable piece of old-fashioned storytelling and a beautiful-looking film: spectacular, exciting, funny and fun.

We’ve heard that before Samsung unveils the Galaxy Note 5, or maybe even at the same time, it will be supersizing its current Android flagship smartphone. There has been word on the street that a Plus-sized version of the Galaxy S6 edge is on its way.
There were also previous rumours that the company would consider a standard S6 Plus too, but those have waned of late and it is thought that only the edge will get a beefier version, bringing that gorgeous wrapped-screen design aesthetic to the larger phone market.
So we’ve decided to round-up all of the rumours and speculation so far to give you an idea of what, where and when the Galaxy S6 edge Plus might appear. We’ll also regularly update this feature as and when more speculation surfaces.
Description: Ted mixes live action and CG-animation to bring to life this laugh-out-loud-funny tale of man whose life is being ruined by his childhood teddy bear. And this is no ordinary teddy. While the young John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) is delighted when his favourite toy is magically brought to life, by adulthood, his furry friend has turned into a bit of a drag. Outspoken, lecherous and a bit of a liability, he’s basically an even blokier version of John himself. And when John’s girlfriend Lori wants him to get serious and ditch Ted, John’s got some very hard thinking to do.Buy Vue Cinema tickets online for Ted and watch the film trailer below.
