In the Spotlight:
So, first off, we were at the theater buying tickets for The Good Dinosaur, when we saw this trailer playing:
It's awesome! Am I right? I love the original Jungle Book film (I have yet to read the book), so it is nice to see a proper remake. If you spotted the giant ape King Louis in this trailer, you might think that it is an over-sized orangutan. Nope! It is actually Gigantopithecus, a now-extinct species of ape larger than the modern gorilla. It was the biggest ape that ever existed, and if it were to stand on two legs, it would stand ten feet tall! Needless to say, I love when movies slip in little-known extinct species like this. The only other time I have seen Gigantopithecus in a movie was in Ice Age: Continental Drift; Captain Gutt belonged to the Gigantopithecus genus. Also, I can't help but say that I love the special effects for this film. I cannot wait for it to come out!

That's all for now, folks! Enjoy this Christmas season that has just begun!
