Disney's Live Action 'Beauty and the Beast' Lands Director Bill Condon

4 June 2014 5:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following this weekend's box office success of Disney's Maleficent, the studio is moving forward with a live-action adaptation of the 1991 animated classic Beauty and the Beast, which has Bill Condon attached to direct.

Evan Spiliotopoulos (Ouija, Hercules) is writing the screenplay, although no specific story details were given at this time. The original Beauty and the Beast was one of the few animated movies to receive an Oscar nomination for Best Picture, grossing over $375 million worldwide and spawning a hit Broadway play and other adaptations such as The CW series Beauty & the Beast and a French Beauty & the Beast adaptation starring Vincent Cassel and L&#233a Seydoux. The characters will also be featured in the upcoming Disney Channel TV movie Descendants.

While it isn't known if there will be any musical elements, Bill Condon wrote the screenplay for the hit musicals Chicago and wrote and directed Dreamgirls.

Fatal Riddles: Hannibal and the Figure of the Serial Killer in Contemporary Television

15 May 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The season premiere of Law & Order's fourteenth season, Bodies, constituted a departure from prior episodes.  Cryptic markings on a dead body are matched to similar markings found on a victim in Brooklyn five years before, and then to more bodies, all of which leads Detectives Briscoe (Jerry Orbach) and Green (Jesse L. Martin) to conclude there is a serial killer at work in New York City. The killer—a psychopathic taxi driver named Mark Bruner (played by guest star Ritchie Coster)—is apprehended relatively quickly. Briscoe and Green take no actions in pursuit of the killer that fans of the show haven't seen a thousand times before: they canvass, retrace the steps of the victim, happen upon a nightclub waitress with a keen eye for creepy patrons, and finally follow a hunch that leads them to Bruner's apartment. It's not the pursuit and capture that provide the climax of the episode, »

The Definitive Movie Musicals: 30-21

11 May 2014 9:33 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As we continue on, I need to once again clarify that if this list was “Joshua Gaul’s 50 Favorite Movie Musicals,” it’d be a quite a different list. But, if my tastes determined what is definitive, I’d be asking you all to consider Aladdin as a brilliant piece of filmmaking and wax nostalgic about my love for Batteries Not Included and Flight of the Navigator (not for the musicals list, of course). Much to my dismay, my tastes are not universal. I’d like to think my research methods are.

28 Days of Disney Animation: ‘Beauty and the Beast’ A True Classic

31 January 2014 9:17 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

We all have our favorite Disney film, but for those who belong to a certain generation, the films released during the Disney Renaissance era (1989-1999) hold a special place. This era saw the company produce some of their most commercially and critically successful films in Disney’s history, by injecting its own unique brand of magic into well-known fairy tales and stories.

A key feature from this era is 1991’s Beauty and the Beast.  Based on the French fairy tale by Jeanne-Marie Le Prince de Beaumont, the film sees Belle (voiced by Paige O’Hara), a young woman who becomes imprisoned in an attempt to save her father by the monstrous Beast (Robby Benson),  a selfish young prince transformed into a monster by a curse until he can learn how to love.

Beauty and the Beast wasn’t the company’s first attempt to bring the fairy tale to the big screen. »

'Law & Order: Svu's' Captain Cragen exits with the perfect 10-4

16 January 2014 11:30 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

When Capt. Donald Cragen left the squad room a final time on "Law & Order: Svu," he did so as he had lived in it -- nobly.

That may be a lofty term, but Dann Florek's performance as the captain of the Special Victims Unit was noble, quiet, steady and unwavering. 

Wednesday's (Jan. 15) "Svu" marked his 400th episode as the captain. Florek played Cragen in all 331 episodes of this series, now in its 15th season, and in 69 episodes of the original "Law & Order."

There's a lot to be said for the sort of decency that Florek could not keep out of his performance. Florek declined requests to speak about his exit from the series, but had spoken with Zap2it over the years in a series of phone interviews and set visits.

He was one of the originals, going back not just to the mothership of "Law & Order," but to that show's initial pilot. »

Blu-ray Release: Crimes and Misdemeanors

10 January 2014 2:55 PM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

Blu-ray Release Date: Feb. 11, 2014

Price: Blu-ray $29.95

Studio: Twilight Time

Woody Allen and Martin Landau star in Allen's Crimes and Misdemeanors.

Woody Allen’s (Blue Jasmine) masterful 1989 film Crimes and Misdemeanors makes its Blu-ray debut courtesy of Twilight Time.

A rare combination of character study, film noir and black comedy, the film is about an esteemed New York ophthalmologist (Martin Landau, Cleopatra) whose affair with a flight attendant (Anjelica Huston, The Grifters) puts the careful construct of his life in jeopardy.

As he contemplates a permanent solution to his problems, another story is weaved into the narrative, this one about another kind of moral crisis: a struggling documentary filmmaker (Allen) considers selling out by making a doc about a Hollywood jackass (Alan Alda, Tower Heist), with the situation further complicated by the appearance of an entrancing TV producer (Mia Farrow, Rosemary’s Baby).

Highlighted by cinematography from the incomparable Sven Nykvist »
