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.

A new Beauty and the Beast clip has been released by Walt Disney Pictures ahead of the release of the forthcoming live-action version of their classic 1990s film. The new clip shows Emma Watson as Belle walking through her village to return a book…
I’m in the camp of the fans really looking forward to seeing this new interpretation of the classic Disney work, though I know that there are some pretty big doubters out there. I’m not sure whether its the look of the film, or the retouching of a classic Disney story that probably should not even begin to be messed with. May I remind you that we thought the same of The Jungle Book last year, and Jon Favreau’s finished film turned out to be something quite special.

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within. »

Disney is saying bonjour to fans of Beauty and the Beast with a brand new clip from the animated classic’s upcoming live-action remake.
Recalling the 1991 musical’s opening number, the minute-long preview, which premiered Monday, sees Belle (Emma Watson) strolling through a village as she sings verses from the character’s namesake tune, first penned by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman.
The original Beauty and the Beast, about a young woman who falls in love with a reclusive, monstrous prince, scored six Oscar nominations in 1992, winning for best original song (“Beauty and the Beast »

Performing a modernized version of “Belle,” Watson’s lead can be seen interacting with Maurice and other townsfolk on her way to the market. Perhaps one of the lesser-known facets of Bill Condon’s live-action reboot is that Alan Menken, the Oscar-winning composer who drew praise (and two Oscar wins!) for his celebrated work on the 1991 original, is back to score Beauty and the Beast, and up above you’ll get but a taste of what to expect come March 17th. Indeed, today’s snippet launched online to commemorate the film’s press tour getting underway in Paris, signalling that Condon’s live-action fairytale is now finally on the homestretch.

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, »

While Beauty and the Beast is shaping up to be one of the first box office blockbusters of 2017, with Disney even setting up immersive opening night events in hundreds of theaters across the country, some may question the need to remake a movie as beloved and timeless as the original 1991 animated classic. Disney has released a new preview, where even director Bill Condon admits that the original movie is perfect, although he does make a pretty good case of why this "tale as old as time" should be told again for a new generation. We also hear from stars Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, who recount their personal history with the original film.
This preview, which debuted on the Disney YouTube, features director Bill Condon revealing that he wanted to remake Beauty and the Beast to tell this story in a "live-action, fully photo-real version," and to re-distinguish Belle as a 21st Century heroine. »

Entertainment Weekly has peeled back the velvet curtain on Beauty and the Beast to unveil five all-new images for Disney’s fairytale epic, while there’s also a brief interview with Emma Watson reflecting on her time spent in “Belle boot camp.”
From the cavernous halls of Beast’s castle to an action shot of Watson’s Belle riding through the enchanted forest, this latest batch of pictures for Bill Condon’s remake is truly something to behold, and previous trailers have showcased just how seamless Belle and the Beast’s (Dan Stevens) interactions can be. It’s a credit to Disney’s VFX team, essentially, but as Emma Watson reveals to EW, the actors had to go endure preparations of their own before the cameras started rolling.
“I kind of went into this boot camp for three months before we started shooting, which was singing four times a week, »

Ever since we learned that Helen Mirren is ride or die for the Fast And The Furious franchise—so much so that she’s starring in the upcoming Fate Of The Furious—we’ve wondered what part she would play in the family-first franchise. Mirren’s done the assassin thing alongside Bruce Willis and Morgan Freeman in the Red movies, so she could certainly handle her own opposite Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson. Word has finally broken as to her role, and it sounds... interesting.
Yahoo! Movies recently interviewed Luke Evans, one of the stars of the Fast & Furious 6, and learned that Mirren would play his character’s mother. Evans was actually stumping for the live-action Beauty And The Beast movie he currently stars in, but he answered questions about his Fast character Owen Shaw, who was last seen in a coma, which is what sent his brother ...

Helen Mirren has been a huge fan of the Fast & Furious franchise for some time now. It goes back, to at least, to 2015 when she told Yahoo Movies, “I so want to be a mad driver in a Fast and Furious movie. My claim to fame is I always do my own driving,” and it seems that this may have stuck in Diesel's mind upon hearing her interview and Mirren was cast for a "mysterious" role for the upcoming The Fate Of The Furious.
But, I am quite positive that she will play the Shaw brother's mother.
Let's take a look at the evidence:
2.) Variety scored an interview with Mirren in October and she dropped the largest hint, »

After expressing her surprisingly deep love for the series, Helen Mirren joined F. Gary Gray’s action sequel – formerly known as simply Fast 8 – in a mystery role last year and ever since, fans have been clamoring to find out exactly who she’ll be playing come April 14th. Well, wonder no more, as Yahoo! has confirmed that Mirren will portray the mother of Owen and Deckard Shaw, and is considered crucial in the plot.
Now that Vin Diesel’s musclebound Dominic Toretto has gone rogue, the remainder of Universal’s crew is forced to set aside old squabbles and partner with Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) if they’re to stand any chance of taking down Charlize Theron’s Cipher. That ought to ensure Mirren has plenty of »
