Upcoming Will Smith Movies to Keep On Your Radar

Fews actors have the natural star power that Will Smith so charmingly radiates. More than that, few have his very powerful street cred.

‘Jungle Cruise’ Review: A Decent Adventure That Owes a Lot to Other Films

Considering its own inspiration, it’s somewhat surprising that the Jungle Cruise ride at Disneyland took so long to become the inspiration for a movie of its own. The opening-day attraction was partially inspired by the 1951 romantic comedy/adventure The African Queen, bringing two of the greatest stars of the era, Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn, together. So now, things have come as full circle as is humanly possible with Jungle Cruise, a romantic comedy/adventure that brings together t...
