A few weeks ago it was reported that the pre-sales for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast were rivalling those of a superhero movie, and now comes word that the live-action adaptation is tracking a domestic opening weekend of between $100 and $120 million in North America.
Should it hit the top end of the range, it would overtake Alice in Wonderland’s $116 million for the third-biggest March opening weekend behind The Hunger Games ($152 million) and record holder Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which opened last year with $166 million.
Disney’s previous live-action take on its animated back catalogue, The Jungle Book, grossed $103 million in its opening weekend last April, and went on to earn $966.6 million worldwide.

Watson was dressed in an elegant light blue Emilia Wickstead gown, complete with a cape and long train.

When Beauty and the Beast started smashing trailer view records, it didn't take Disney long to realize that it had another gargantuan hit on its hands. And the first tracking records now indicate that the live-action adaptation of the classic 90s cartoon will bring booming business to the early 2017 box office. It stands to be one of the biggest hits of the year with ten months still left to go following its release.
The movie, which stars Emma Watson as Belle, is tracking for a massive $120 million opening according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film will be in theaters on March 17, with the tracking numbers coming courtesy of pre-release surveys. Disney insiders are being more cautious with that high number, and don't want to step on their own toes. They are downplaying the monster potential of this Beauty and her Beast, claiming it will open just north of $100 million.

“Feud,” which tells the story of clashing screen titans Joan Crawford and Bette Davis around the production of their 1962 film “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?,” is a series designed for a knowing audience, a basket of Easter eggs. The mythos of the film’s production — which cast the two rivals as two sisters raised in show business — is intertwined with each actress’ place in Hollywood legend; it was a last-ditch attempt at relevance for both “mature” stars, in an industry that would have preferred to shove them aside for younger women. As “Feud” relates, even though Crawford brought the project to Davis and profited off of its success, she couldn’t stomach the fact that Davis was nominated for an Academy Award over her. Stoked by alcohol and anger, Crawford went so far as to actively campaign against her costar in the 1963 Oscar race — before mutual desperation brought the two actresses together again for “Hush… Hush »

For more than 35 years, the names Bela and Martha Karolyi have been synonymous with elite American gymnastics. The duo — who defected from Romania in 1981 — have coached legends from Mary Lou Retton to Kerri Strug, and Martha oversaw both the 2012 and 2016 gold-medal winning teams.
Young gymnasts dreaming of Olympic gold knew there was only one place to go if they wanted to earn their place on the Olympic team: Karolyis Camp.
The secluded ranch in the Sam Houston National Forest is now under scrutiny as several former gymnasts have come forward to allege that former team doctor Larry Nassar sexually abused them on the property. »

“Feuds are never about hate,” famed screen legend Olivia de Havilland (Catherine Zeta-Jones) explains to a documentary film director in the opening minutes of what’s likely to be your simmering new obsession: Feud. “They’re about pain.” Anthology fetishist Ryan Murphy understands that pathos to a disturbingly detailed degree, and in tracking the blistering “friendship” between legendary actresses Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, he ends up with one of his best cracks at the anthology genre in years.
The show’s premise risks stepping into the catty trap of comebacks and catfights at first blush, but Murphy and company have no desire to reduce Bette and Joan’s discourse into a frivolous fiasco. Feud is deliberate and cunning, with as much guile and guts as the two women at its center. Its drama is a slower-burn than Murphy’s typical chomping-at-the-bit style, »

Disney’s live action adaptation of the classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast is nearing its global release next month. The promotion campaign bandwagon is catching up with the understandable groundswell of interest, today there is a new clip from the film out to tease and delight.
Emma Watson is front and centre in the clip, and we follow her through the town as she sings a jaunty tune. It’s all extremely pleasant. The visual detail is quite something with the moustaches in particular leading the way in the cartoon-like quality stakes. Those are some serious whiskers on the baker for example. It’s a sumptuous affair as expected, and Bill Condon appears to have captured the charming spirit of the beloved 1991 animated version.
