All the Reasons You Recognize The Lion King's New Scar

  • Popsugar
There are plenty of things you can say about the upcoming remake of Disney's classic The Lion King, but "the cast sucks" certainly isn't one of them. The voice cast is chock-full of big-name stars, from Donald Glover as Simba to Beyoncé as Nala to John Oliver as Zazu. There's even a bit of casting nostalgia: the legendary James Earl Jones and his unmistakeable voice will be returning as Mufasa, the same character he voiced in the 1994 original movie. And if you've been to the movies at all in the past few years, chances are you also recognize the actor who's lending his voice to Scar, the villainous usurper at the heart of the conflict, voiced by Jeremy Irons in the original film.

Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey's New Thriller Looks Deeply Uncomfortable
Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey have reunited four years after Christopher Nolan's existential Interstellar for another stressful-as-hell movie. In Serenity, a very blond Hathaway asks a rugged McConaughey to murder her abusive husband, played by Chappaquiddick's Jason Clarke, by dropping him smack dab in the ocean, much to the delight of any nearby sharks. Having fun yet? The trailer also features a mysterious man with a briefcase, several ominous shots of blood, and a Lost-like vibe that hints not all on the island is as it seems.

Serenity is scheduled to be released later this year on Jan. 25. Watch the deeply agitating - and still kind of sexy? Just me? - new trailer above, then check out the first footage ahead.
