Welcome back to another edition of Fantasy Fridays here at Lrm, where two real-life best friends put their heads together and pretend to be studio execs as they try to cast and hire other pertinent talent for upcoming geek properties.
This week, we turn our attention towards Green Lantern Corps, since there were recent developments on that front recently. The film recently snagged David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, Blade) and Justin Rhodes (Grassroots) to write the script, with DC Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns producing and overseeing the project. There's also been talk that it'll have a sort of Lethal Weapon vibe to it, and that it'll sort of base itself off of the Sinestro Corps Wars.
Naturally, this news got all of us here at Lrm talking, »

It’s coming to cinemas in just under two months, and Disney are really starting to push the film in any way they can. Beauty and the Beast actually looks really superb from what we’ve seen, and we can’t wait to see what they’ve done with their live-action redo of the classic animated tale [as old as time]. The studio have just released this stunning new triptych poster for the film, which arrives in cinemas on March 17th. Check this out.
The triptych poster is similar to the one released for The Jungle Book around this time last year, which was equally superb.
The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s father; Josh Gad as LeFou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Ewan McGregor as Lumière, the candelabra; Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, »

As promotion for the live-action adaptation of Beauty and The Beast kicks up a notch ahead of its March premiere, Disney has released a new triptych poster featuring the entire cast of the film together. In addition to Belle (Emma Watson) and her hirsute companion (Dan Stevens), we get new looks at the palace staff in both their cursed and human forms, as well as the likes of Gaston (Luke Evans), Le Fou (Josh Gad) and Belle's father (Kevin Kline). In fact, the only character that doesn't seem to be included is the Beast's human guise of Prince Adam (no, not that one).

Disney has been making an absolute killing with their live-action adaptations of animated classics in recent years. This year, they have easily one of the most highly-anticipated movies of the year with the live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, which will feature Harry Potter star Emma Watson as Belle. As it turns out, this wasn't the first time the studio tried to get her to play a classic Disney Princess.
In a recent interview with Total Film, Emma Watson revealed that she turned down the role of Cinderella in Disney's 2015 adaptation. She also revealed that she wasn't holding out to play Belle, because at the time, she had no idea Beauty and the Beast was even happening. Here is what she had to say about it.
"I didn't know they were going to make Beauty and the Beast at the time I turned down Cinderella. But when they offered me Belle, »
Beauty and the Beast's Gaston might not be able to win the fight for Belle, but can he come out on top in an old-fashioned push-up contest? A rather muscular park-goer decided to find out when he saw Gaston at Walt Disney World in Florida back in 2015, and the viral video is once again making the rounds online. If this Gaston looks familiar, it's probably because he's the same one that was confronted by a passionate little girl at the theme park in 2014 over her love for the Beast. While we don't think there will be any push-up scenes in the upcoming live-action remake of the Disney classic, Luke Evans, who plays Gaston, would probably crush his theme park counterpart.

Pick of the WeekBad Day at Black Rock [Warner Archive]
What is it? A one-armed man arrives via train in a remote western town, and the populace reacts with suspicion and violence.
Why buy it? Spencer Tracy excels as the polite but mysterious stranger whose presence sets everyone on edge, and the more he probes the harder they push. The film explores threads of America’s deep-seated racism and small-town insulation, and it pairs that commentary with a steadily increasing suspense. The themes and actions here are still sadly relevant, even now, and it makes for an important watch that still manages to entertain. Tracy’s potential adversaries include Lee Marvin, Ernest Borgnine, Walter Brennan, and »

This March, Emma Watson is set to bring Belle to life as the star of Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast, but the actress has revealed to Total Film that this isn’t the first Disney Princess she’s had the opportunity to play, having turned down the title role in 2015’s Cinderella.
“I didn’t know they were going to make Beauty and the Beast at the time I turned down Cinderella,” said Watson. “But when they offered me Belle, I just felt the character resonated with me so much more than Cinderella did. She remains curious, compassionate and open-minded. And that’s the kind of woman I would want to embody as a role model, given the choice. In a strange way, [Belle] challenges the status quo of the place she lives in, and I found that really inspiring. And also, she manages to keep her »
