Behind the Scenes Video of Ryan Gosling Playing Piano in ‘La La Land’ (Exclusive)

11 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

For his Oscar-nominated role in “La La Land,” Ryan Gosling spent three months learning to play the piano — so it’s somewhat of a compliment that many people ask if there was a hand double involved. “It’s all Ryan,” says writer-director Damien Chazelle, adding that there was initially going to be someone on deck just in case, but it was never needed.

New Bts video provided to Variety shows Gosling on set rehearsing or playing in several scenes, including the number “Start a Fire” with John Legend and at the wedding of his character’s sister.

It’s not the first time Gosling has taken on a special skill or gone to extremes for a film. For “The Notebook,” he spent two months soaking up the culture of in Charleston, Sc and even learned to build furniture like his character. To put on 60 pounds for “The Lovely Bones,” a film he eventually left, »

Emma Watson Sings 'Belle' in Latest Beauty and the Beast Clip

11 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last month, during the Golden Globe Awards, Disney aired a new TV spot for Beauty and the Beast, which showcased the first footage of Emma Watson singing part of the iconic song "Belle." Today we have a new clip that shows the actress singing the beginning of this song, as she strolls through this quaint little provincial town. This clip shows that, while the song has largely remained intact from the original animated classic, there are a few changes that were made.

The clip, which debuted at Disney Movie Trailers YouTube, shows Belle walking through town, buying a loaf of bread from the baker, although, unlike the original animated classic, she doesn't have a brief conversation with the baker. Instead, she greets a character named Monsieur Jean, who she tells she's going to return a book about two lovers, which Monsieur Jean says, "sounds boring." In the original animated film, »

2017 Oscar Previews: Part 1

22 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

The 89th Annual Academy Awards will take place Sunday February 26th at 8:30pm Eastern time. Here is our overview of the major awards nominees in case you didn’t get to see them yourself. 

There’s always a lot of talk leading up to the big day about who will win what awards. We try to make our predictions based on trends from the past, but we can’t help to be swayed by our own personal opinions. Some movies truly strike a chord with us, while others aren’t interesting at all. Furthermore, Oscar films are usually heavy in the drama department and therefore they aren’t always the easiest or most entertaining movies to watch.

That’s why we’re here. Here is your guide to the nominees of this year’s Academy Awards. We’ve compiled the following brief summaries, interesting facts, and critical reviews for all these films and people. »

Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action adaptation of one of Disney’s most famous animated features. However, the central narrative of the film, opening March 17, has reignited a debate over whether Belle is trapped in an abusive relationship with Beast.

Early in the film, Beast imprisons Belle’s father and then captures her. The heroine fights back and tries to escape. Once the monster apologizes and shows some level of kindness, Belle begins to change her mind about the monster, eventually falling in love with him.

Behind the Song: The Journey of ‘La La Land’s’ ‘City of Stars’

17 February 2017 1:31 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Even before “La La Land” unspooled at festivals and in theaters, people were humming the tune “City of Stars” thanks to early teasers. The melancholy theme appears twice in the film — Ryan Gosling’s Sebastian sings a shortened version on a pier early on in the film, then later duets with Emma Stone’s Mia when the two have moved in together. The song has become an anthem of sorts for the film, and is one of two tunes nominated from the film for best original song.

Writer-director Damien Chazelle called upon his college roommate Justin Hurwitz to score the film and write the melodies for the six original songs. When it came to the lyrics, they hired the duo of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, who are currently enjoying massive success on Broadway as the composers and lyricists of “Dear Evan Hansen.”
