The Jungle Book
Six decades after introducing the world to the bare necessities of Rudyard Kipling's tropical tale, Disney reworks the adventure with an eye-catching blend of live action and digital wizardry. Newcomer Neel Sethi plays Mowgli, the orphaned 'man-cub' who must leave the wolf pack who raised him when the man-hating tiger Shere Khan (voiced by Idris Elba) comes looking for his blood. As Mowgli sets out with his panther guardian Bagheera (Ben Kingsley) to find a new home, his quest throws up all manner of lessons and surprises, from the laid-back philosophies of Baloo the bear (Bill Murray) to the slippery seductions of Kaa the snake (Scarlett Johansson) and the fiery ambitions of big, bad ape King Louie (Christopher Walken). Director Jon Favreau brings the timeless story to spectacular, digi-real life in a rollicking jungle rumble that can stand proudly alongside the animated classic.
Director: Jon Favreau
Starring: Neel Sethi, Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong'o, Scarlett Johansson, Christopher Walken

Robin Williams was on a roll when he played a man trapped inside a board game's invisible jungle for almost 30 years. Williams is as endearing as ever and there's also the chance to see Spider-Man star Kirsten Dunst in one of her earliest roles. A fantastical family hit thanks to lively direction from Honey I Shrunk The Kids director Joe Johnston, neat special effects and a refreshingly subtle moral message.
