The three films tell a continuous story set in Middle-earth 60 years before “The Lord of the Rings,” which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar®-winning “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.”

Having survived the beginning of their unexpected journey, the Company continues East, encountering along the way the skin-changer Beorn and a swarm of giant Spiders in the treacherous forest of Mirkwood.

Two-time Academy Award®–winner Emma Thompson and fellow double Oscar®-winner Tom Hanks topline Disney’s “Saving Mr. Banks,” inspired by the extraordinary, untold backstory of how Disney’s classic “Mary Poppins” made it to the screen.
When Walt Disney’s daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L. Travers’ “Mary Poppins,” he made them a promise—one that he didn’t realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. But, as the books stop selling and money grows short, Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Disney’s plans for the adaptation.
For those two short weeks in 1961, Walt Disney pulls out all the stops. Armed with imaginative storyboards and chirpy songs from the talented Sherman brothers, Walt launches an all-out onslaught on P.L. Travers, but the prickly author doesn’t budge. He soon begins to watch helplessly as Travers becomes increasingly immovable and the rights begin to move further away from his grasp.
It is only when he reaches into his own childhood that Walt discovers the truth about the ghosts that haunt her, and together they set Mary Poppins free to ultimately make one of the most endearing films in cinematic history.

Twenty years after Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park, what could possibly go wrong if you were to recreate dinosaurs and get them talking?
Well, the funny thing is, the dinosaurs themselves are fine and laudable efforts are made to set them in geological context.
Once you are settled into their world, it looks a lot more realistic than it did on the trailer that’s been kicking around for a while.
So, the biggest problem, then, is what went on to the blank sheet: the script.
In an age when computer animators can do just about anything, creating dinosaurs – real-looking or otherwise – is not the difficult bit.
It is still devising something which grabs the heart and stirs the soul.
See and feel what it was like when dinosaurs ruled the Earth, in a story where an underdog dino triumphs to become a hero for the ages.

Under the influence of his father’s teaching and mother’s religious beliefs, Vivekananda turns a new leaf and becomes more religious and spiritual. This is the beginning of his quest to discover God. Then, we can see Vivekananda’s first meeting with his master Ram Krishna Paramhans. His father was an advocate and his mother was a religious - minded woman. Narendranath started embracing religious sentiments but his parents cherished high hopes for him and wanted him to get married and become a successful worldly man. But he was more interested to discover God in its true sense and understand spirituality. In his quest to realise God, he felt one step closer after meeting his master Sri Ramkrishna.His meeting with the master proved to be a turning point. It was very hard for young and rational minded Vivekananda to accept Ramkrishna Paramhans and his visions initially. Though, he could not neglect him either. It was his nature to test something thoroughly before he would accept it. Ramakrishna never asked Vivekananda to accept God blindly and he used to smile at Vivekananda’s argument and doubtful nature and he used to tell him “Try to see the truth from all angles”.
Bengali film maker Srijit Mukherjee is creating MISHOR RAHASYA bengali motion picture featuring Prosenjit Chatterjee as ‘Kakababu’. Prosenjit Chatterjee Cast: Prosenjit Chatterjee as KAKABABU. Devdan as SHONTU.
Kakababu (Prosenjit Chatterjee) is contracted by Egyptian businessman Al Mamun (Rajit Kapur) to decipher the meanings of hieroglyphic symbols that his teacher, Mufti Muhammad (Barun Chanda), had drawn on a piece of paper supposedly during his sleep. Muhammad is terminally ill and is about to grant his last wish while he is being treated in Delhi. Mamun thinks that the symbols are the key to locating Mufti Muhammad's will which will describe where to find treasures Mufti Muhammad had acquired during his tenure as a political leader and revolutionist. However, Kakababu is convinced that the symbols have a different meaning and they are very unusual in their nature. Mufti Muhammad symbolically requests Kakababu to verify something, a very unusual last wish. Meanwhile, a war of rivalry ensues between Mamun and Hani Alkadi (Indraneil Sengupta), another of Mufti Muhammad's disciples who accuses Mamun of stealing a secret that isn't rightfully his. While in Delhi, there was an attempt to murder Kakababu, in which Kakababu was injured. Kakababu took the challenge to uncover the truth for which he and his nephew Shontu (Aryann Bhowmik) head to Egypt where they are drawn into the very vortex of the mystery. Kakababu gets kidnapped by Alkadi's men which sets off a chain of events, culminating in a climax underneath a pyramid. Inside the pyramid, Kakababu discovers the lost mummy of an Egyptian queen with the help of the hieroglyphics code written by Mufti Muhammad. The present day political turmoil in Egypt also subtly reverbarates in the film. At the end, Kakababu gives Hani Alkadi the coded message written inside the coffin of the mummy.
This is the journey to the fabled, 'Mountain Of The Moon', in search of gold and diamond mines, up against threats as vivid and varied as lurking snakes, pouncing lions, poisonous flora, the fury of an active volcano and a seemingly, almost supernatural mythical horror 'The Bunyip' the guardian angel of the diamond cave. However, it is also the story of grit and determination, a story of following one's dream against all odds and emerging victorious, a story about a young lad called Shankar who, faced with the prospect of having to make a living as a factory worker in his impoverished village, bids farewell to his family in Keutia, rural Bengal, and through his aide Prasad Das Banopadhay, who happens to work for the Uganda railway head office, sets sail to the Dark Continent to work as the station master in Nakuru station, a dream come true for Shankar who has always envisioned himself as a expeditionary and holds interest in world geography and map reading. It is at this Nakuru station, where Shankar is faced with the consequences of Africa, ranging from bloodthirsty lions & aggressive Black Mambas. Shankar's true test begins when he rescues the Portuguese explorer Diego Alvarez and he tells the story of the ultimate adventure; a journey to the fabled 'Mountain of the Moon'.
