Lindsay Lohan Wants to Be Ariel in The Little Mermaid Remake

10 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in August, Disney revealed that the studio is teaming up with Lin-Manuel Miranda and Alan Menken, who are set to write new music for the studio's The Little Mermaid remake. We haven't heard any more on the remake since then, including who will be cast, or who will serve as writer or director on this coveted project. Today we have word that actress Lindsay Lohan may be throwing her hat in the ring for the Ariel role, after a new post on Instagram this weekend.

While Lindsay Lohan doesn't specifically state that she wants the Ariel role, she posted a side-by-side picture of herself with red hair, and the redhaired animated version of Ariel. She didn't state anything else on Instagram, only using the hashtag #TheLittleMermaid. It isn't known if the script is even ready or if the studio is ready to start the auditioning process, but we don't »

‘The Great Wall,’ Isn’t: Why All Three President’s Day Releases Flopped

11 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Great Wall” (Universal) fared best among the three new original debuts this week. But at $18 million, it fell short of what was needed to boost this very expensive Chinese production aimed at international markets (while making American audiences see it as nothing out of the ordinary).

Even so, it did better than the disappointing Ice Cube comedy “Fist Fight” (Warner Bros.) or Gore Verbinski’s disastrous “A Cure for Wellness” (20th Century Fox), which barely made the Top 10. But any heft came from decent holdovers from last weekend’s unprecedented trio of $30 million+ openers.

That’s the good news. The bad is this is a Top Ten that compares miserably with 2016, and represents a further decline in year-to-date totals. Even if they aren’t in actual free fall, they’re showing serious weakness.

‘Planet Earth II’ Review: A Revival With Greater Purpose Than Meets the Eye

18 February 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Within the BBC’s gorgeous documentary series, “Planet Earth II,” there are plenty of new elements to admire — and the show is eager to share. Narrator David Attenborough, sitting in a hot air balloon above snow-drenched mountaintops, checks off each general advancement during the pilot:

The filmmakers were able to get incredibly close to each animal thanks to innovative remote cameras. Further advancements in technology also meant discovering previously unobtainable “wildlife dramas.” We can see, hear, and admire these dramas better than ever, with clearer, brighter, and more comprehensive photography than has been possible prior to this.

Better yet, the progress Attenborough heartily expounds is more than evident on screen. Covering islands, mountains, jungles, deserts, grasslands, and cities, “Planet Earth II” literally covers a lot of ground in its seven episodes (the final episode is a “making of”), always with an eye toward beauty and our quickly changing environments. Impossible sights are enticingly strung together, »

Angela Lansbury Joins Mary Poppins Returns

17 February 2017 3:01 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Mary Poppins Returns is positively brimming with talent. Emily Blunt takes on the titular role that Julie Andrews once played, while Lin-Manuel Miranda, Meryl Streep, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Colin Firth, Julie Waters and Dick Van Dyke round out the ensemble. Now, they’ll be joined by another tremendous screen presence, as Angela Lansbury enters the newest live-action Disney sequel.

Five-time Tony winner Lansbury will play the Balloon Lady, who was originally featured in P.L. Travers’ novel. While it’s presumably a minor role, it definitely won’t be Lansbury’s introduction to Disney. She previously starred in Bedknobs and Broomsticks and also gave her voice to Mrs. Potts in the original 1992 Beauty and the Beast. She won’t reprise the role in the live-action adaptation, however. Those duties now belong to Emma Thompson. Oddly enough, Thompson played Travers in Disney’s Saving Mr. Banks. The studio likes to keep people in the family, »

Oscar Nominee Lin-Manuel Miranda Learned He Was Going to Be a Dad the Same Day He Booked Moana

17 February 2017 1:09 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Moana composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, whose tune “How Far I’ll Go” is nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Song, still remembers the day he learned he had been hired to write the music for Disney’s latest animated movie.

The 37-year-old had grown up a self-professed Disney superfan — transfixed, among other things, by Alan Menken‘s scores to movies like The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin. To be joining the Disney canon of composers alongside Menken, Stephen Schwartz (Hunchback of Notre Dame), Elton John (The Lion King) and more felt like a life-altering step; a dream »

Final Power Rangers Trailer Can’t Figure Out If It’s Iron Man Or Spider-Man

17 February 2017 12:41 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you didn’t know any better, you’d assume next month kicked off the summer. Between Logan, Beauty and the Beast, Kong: Skull Island and Ghost in the Shell, it’s filled with tons of blockbusters, and that’s without mentioning Power Rangers. Director Dean Israelite’s revamped reboot is a younger, slicker take on the corny children’s TV series, and this final trailer isn’t afraid to flaunt that.

The new one-minute teaser favors jokes as much as it does the goofy, larger-than-life action, and while it’s unclear if the final product will work, it looks like the filmmakers took a tongue-in-cheek approach here. What a relief. While screenwriter Max Landis is given a writing credit, his script was ultimately discarded – though you might think otherwise, with the film seemingly mimicking Chronicle just as much as it does Iron Man.

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. »
