About Captain America: Civil War

The most explosive clash to ever rock the Marvel Cinematic Universe ignites a firestorm of conflict in the game-changing epic, “Captain America: Civil War”.

Against a backdrop of divided loyalties, their fellow Avengers must deal with the fallout.

Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War” is directed by Emmy® Award-winning directors Anthony and Joe Russo from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely. Kevin Feige, p.g.a. is the producer of the film, with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Patricia Whitcher, Nate Moore and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.

Join the nonstop action and pick your side—Team Cap, commanded by Steve Rogers, or Team Iron Man, led by Tony Stark.

Rogers and Stark are joined by a star-studded lineup of beloved Marvel Super Heroes, including Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow, Bucky Barnes aka Winter Soldier, Sam Wilson aka Falcon, Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes aka War Machine (Don Cheadle), Clint Barton aka Hawkeye, Vision and Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch, along with new recruit Scott Lang aka Ant-Man and joined by two new additions to the MCU: T’Challa aka Black Panther and Peter Parker aka Spider-Man.

About Disney’s The Jungle Book

Directed by Jon Favreau and produced by Favreau and Brigham Taylor, “The Jungle Book” is a live-action epic adventure based on Rudyard Kipling’s timeless stories. It’s inspired by Disney’s classic 1967 animated film and centered on Mowgli (Neel Sethi), a man-cub who’s been raised by a family of wolves.

Mowgli finds he is no longer welcome in the jungle when fearsome tiger Shere Khan (voice of Idris Elba), who bears the scars of Man, promises to eliminate what he sees as a threat.

The film’s musical score is composed by Emmy® winner and Oscar-, BAFTA- and Annie Award-nominee John Debney. It features a classic orchestral sound accented by ethnic instruments. It pays homage to the original film by highlighting snippets of the classic songs we all know and love.
