RopeofSilicon has just obtained your first look at 20th Century Fox’s Fat Albert live action adaptation along with more pics from the Fox Fall/Summer slate including Katie Holmes’ First Daughter, Dennis Quaid’s Flight of the Phoenix and Jimmy Fallon and Queen Latifah in Taxi.
Fat Albert is the live action adaptation of the Bill Cosby’s hugely popular character. The movie will be based on Cosby’s stand-up comedy monologues about his childhood, centered around a group of urban adolescents growing up in a Philadelphia neighborhood. To check out four new pics click here.
Fat Albert stars Kenan Thompson, Jeremy Suarez, Raven-Symone, Jermaine Williams, Aaron Frazier and Kyla Pratt.
Also on the slate is First Daughter starring Katie Holmes where Samantha Mackenzie (Holmes) wants what every college freshman desires: to experience life away from home and parents. But itÃ‚Â¹s not going to be easy, because home for Sam is The White House and her dad (Michael Keaton), is the President of the United States.

Next up is Dennis Quaid in Flight of the Phoenix also starring Giovanni Ribisi, Tyrese Gibson and Miranda Otto in an action-adventure in which a group of air crash survivors – cast-offs from society who will never be missed – are stranded in the Mongolian desert with no hope of rescue. As they attempt to build a new plane from the wreckage of the old one, in hopes of flying back to civilization, they experience a rebirth of their own. To check out the pics click here.
Finally is Taxi starring Jimmy Fallon and Queen Latifah in an action comedy in which Latifah is New YorkÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s fastest cabbie whose skills behind the wheel and souped-up car help an overeager undercover cop (Fallon) pursue a gang of female bank robbers. The great thing here is that one of the bank robbers happens to be super-model Gisele Bundchen, featured in the pic below, click here or on the lovely Gisele below to get the rest of the pics and a look at the early trailer.
