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. »

Watch Emma Watson perform ‘Belle’ from ‘Beauty and the Beast’

11 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

This article originally appeared on EW.com

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 »

New Beauty And The Beast Clip Is All About Belle

12 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Looks like her time spent in Bella boot camp has paid dividends, as Emma Watson simply lights up the screen in this all-new clip for Disney’s 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.

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

13 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, »

Great Job, Internet!: Today Daniel Craig officially becomes the second-longest-tenured James Bond

19 hours ago | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The future of the James Bond series remains uncertain, with actors ranging from Idris Elba to Gugu Mbatha-Raw rumored to take over the role. (We’ve suggested a couple possibilities already ourselves. Steve Buscemi can do anything, right?) It’s certainly time for a left turn, or at least a move away from “traditionally handsome white dude.” But as of today, Daniel Craig is still the traditionally handsome white dude we officially associate with Ian Fleming’s classic character, which puts him at 4,147 consecutive days in the role—exactly one more than Pierce Brosnan’s run, moving Craig into second place overall.

If you’re bothered, today is the day that Daniel Craig becomes the 2nd longest-serving #Bond actor. pic.twitter.com/sEjehwAmw2

Beauty and the Beast Sneak Peek Brings the Animated Classic to Life

17 February 2017 10:33 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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. »

Another Batch Of Stunning Images For Disney’s Beauty And The Beast Has Arrived

17 February 2017 6:07 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

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.

The Last Jedi set photo, Suicide Squad 2 director possibly revealed, Deadpool 2 casting leaked and more – Daily News Roundup

16 February 2017 12:25 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The First Set Photo

While we can expect to see the first trailer during Star Wars Celebration in April, director Rian Johnson has shared a set photo from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Johnson also teased the film’s presence at the event, saying “We’re coming to Orlando for a Star Wars Celebration panel on April 14th, and I cannot wait.  See you there!” Read more about that story here.

Gibson Does Suicide

In some rather surprising news, it’s being reported that Academy Award nominated director Mel Gibson is being tapped to direct Suicide Squad 2, the sequel to last year’s rather mediocre anti-villain outing. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gibson is currently familiarising himself with the material, but Warner Bros. is also considering other directors, including Daniel Espinosa (Life). David Ayer directed the first Suicide Squad, but is now working on the Harley Quinn-led spinoff Gotham City Sirens. »

Rumour: Deadpool 2 character breakdown for Domino reportedly leaks online

15 February 2017 1:22 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Character information and casting details for the new Deadpool 2 character Domino has reportedly leaked online.

Domino’s inclusion in the sequel has been rumoured for some time now YouTube channel That Hashtag Show have apparently gotten their hands on a character breakdown.

Listed in the breakdown under Domino’s real name, Neena, the character is described in the following fashion:

“Female. All ethnicities. Late 20s to early 30s. Sexy, lithe, and athletic. She has a witty personality. Neena is a no-nonsense badass who rarely shows her feelings. Highly capable, supremely confident and armored in — well armor — and bullet-proof sarcasm. But beneath her shell she’s still and vulnerable and some soft, beating remnant of her humanity remains intact. In this scene we need to see both sides. When she can’t get what she needs with insults, bluster and threats we need to see some of that vulnerability. It’s »

What Kerry Washington Looks Like as Domino in Deadpool 2

15 February 2017 9:02 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Deadpool 2 details are still reasonably scarce, but the movie is expected to shoot this year and the production team is currently casting some major roles for the upcoming sequel. The movie is going to be adding the time-traveling mutant Cable, who is a fan favorite and has long been someone X-Men fans have wanted to see on the big screen. The movie is also bringing in Domino, a very powerful female mutant/mercenary. Recently, it was revealed that Scandal actress Kerry Washington is the frontrunner for the role and thanks to some excellent fan art, we now know what that could look like.

Artist BossLogic decided to do a rendition of Kerry Washington as Domino shortly after the news broke and took to his Twitter account to share what he came up with. The results are pretty hard to argue with. Not only does the 40-year-old actress really look the part, »

Deadpool 2 Fan Art Imagines Kerry Washington As Domino

15 February 2017 8:58 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Leave it to PhotoShop genie BossLogic to produce a mock-up of Kerry Washington as Domino. On the heels of yesterday’s Deadpool 2 casting rumor, the prolific concept artist has published a new piece of fan art that imagines Washington, who is purportedly in talks for the villainous part after Sienna Miller (The Lost City of Z) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw dropped out of the race, as the badass Neena Thurman.

Per Screen Rant, this is by no means BossLogic’s first rodeo in the superhero genre, after envisioning what Megan Fox would look like as Poison Ivy in Gotham City Sirens. Now, the spotlight has shifted over to Deadpool 2 and, specifically, the currently vacant role of Domino. We know that Thurman is all set to feature in David Leitch’s follow-up alongside long-time love interest Cable – Pierce Brosnan is the latest (and final?) candidate to emerge for that one »

A Pompous Gaston Belts Out A Tune In Latest Clip For Beauty And The Beast

14 February 2017 2:00 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since Disney peeled back the velvet curtain on its enchanting first teaser for Bill Condon’s Beauty and the Beast – a promo that would go on to smash records left, right and center – the Mouse House described its fantastical yarn as a tale as old as time.

The beloved 1991 original may stand as the primary source of inspiration – watch the two versions side by side and you’ll discover that, in some sequences, Condon’s reimagining is essentially a shot-for-shot remake – but Beauty and the Beast can be traced all the way back to Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont’s iconic fairytale from the late 18th century. Few properties can hold a candle (a Lumière?) to its historic legacy, but on March 17th, Disney and Bill Condon will introduce Beauty and the Beast like we’ve never seen them before.

14 February 2017 1:29 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Since it's Valentine's Day, Disney thought it would be the perfect time to unveil the first clip from their new live action version of the "tale as old as time," Beauty and the Beast. Luke Evans appeared on ABC's Good Morning America earlier, where he introduced a sneak peek video from this highly-anticipated romance, hitting theaters March 17. While the clip isn't terribly long, it does give us our first look at both Luke Evans' character Gaston and Josh Gad's Le Fou, and we also have videos from Luke Evans' live Twitter Q&A this morning, plus a new TV spot and a portion of Josh Groban's song "Evermore" from the film.

The clip is part of a five-minute segment that was posted on the Good Morning America YouTube, with the clip coming at the 2:43 mark. The clip in question gives fans a brief glimpse at the iconic "Gaston" song, »

Deadpool 2: Breakdown of Domino Casting Reveals Rumored Actress

Deadpool 2 Eyes Scandal Star Kerry Washington as Domino

14 February 2017 11:42 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With a new director on board in Chad Stahelski (John Wick, John Wick 2), 20th Century Fox is moving forward with Deadpool 2, which is believed to start filming this summer. It has long been confirmed that this sequel will feature both Cable and Domino from the Marvel Comics, although neither of these characters have been cast at this time. Today we have a new casting breakdown with details about Domino, with Scandal star Kerry Washington reportedly testing for the role.

These new details come from The Hashtag Show, which was provided with a casting breakdown for Domino. Unlike most casting breakdowns that use code names for these secretive characters, this breakdown avoids the subterfuge by using Domino's given name of Neena. This report also reveals that, while Kerry Washington is currently reading for the role, both Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Sienna Miller have both passed on the role. Kerry Washington is »

Deadpool 2: Rumored Shortlist For Domino Surfaces

14 February 2017 9:35 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

That Hashtag Show has unearthed an alleged casting shortlist for Deadpool 2 claiming that Scandal‘s Kerry Washington is currently testing for the role of Domino.

It’s worth noting that Ths’ report goes on to stress that negotiations are still ongoing, but it would seem Washington has come into contention after Sienna Miller (The Lost City of Z) and Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Beauty and the Beast) both passed on the role. What’s interesting here is that this purported shortlist emerged alongside a description of Domino as she’ll appear in the David Leitch-directed sequel. If nothing else, it gives us some indication of the criteria Fox is adhering to during Deadpool 2‘s ongoing casting process, and providing today’s report holds true, fans of Marvel Comics can look forward to a faithful rendition of the hardened mercenary.

The purported character breakdown reads as so:

“Female, All ethnicities; Late 20s – early 30s. »
