If you're reading this and you haven't seen Disney's The Jungle Book, do yourself a favor and check it out. I had no intentions of checking it out myself but after seeing it a few weeks ago I'm very glad I got the chance to check it out. Not only is the story fun and engaging but the animation is incredible.
Check out the stories below to see what you might have missed from this week.

The movies are intended to be a culmination of everything that's happened before in the MCU so you don't want to get into spoilers but I'm a big fan of what James Gunn has done. Star-Lord is a fantastic character and Chris Pratt is an awesome performer so you'd be very excited. [Comicbook]

The Neon Demon
Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Only God Forgives) is back with his new project, The Neon Demon.
