'Frozen' Will Get a Broadway Musical Before a Big-Screen Sequel

18 hours ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Ever since Disney's Frozen turned into this phenomenon that has now placed it among some of the highest grossing movies of all time, fans have been eager to learn what's next, especially in an age where almost every successful movie immediately gets a sequel. Things are different with Frozen, though, because it was really the ridiculously catchy songs that turned it into a hit, and if you look back at Disney Animation's track record when it comes to its musical movies (The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast), none of them have gotten straight-up, big-screen sequels. Instead, we saw straight-to-dvd sequels and Broadway musicals. If we go by Disney chief Alan Horn's recent comments, it would appear they're not changing that format...

The CW latest bubble show renewal odds

22 April 2014 6:13 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The CW is edging closer to deciding the fate of its six bubble shows. As we’ve previously reported earlier this month in Death Watch, Hart of Dixie and The 100 are likely to be renewed, while The Carrie Diaries is likely to be cancelled. It’s the other three remaining limbo dramas — Beauty and the Beast, The Tomorrow People and Star-Crossed — that have been the biggest question marks.

We’re now hearing freshman sci-fi shows Tomorrow People and Star-Crossed are now looking less likely to return. Yet sophomore series Beauty and the Beast is still up in the air — on »

The Songs of "Spellbound": Q&A with Producer Kevin Bannerman

22 April 2014 12:09 PM, PDT | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

Spellbound, the animated test movie from Amazon Studios features five original songs. We asked producer Kevin Bannerman (Anastasia, Ice Age) on the role the songs played and how it shaped the film.

How do songs help shape a movie?

It helps shape the movie’s tone. They can often show screenwriters a side of the character that hasn’t been explored. With a lyricist, the characters can develop a sense of humor and personality through their songs.

What song is the most pivotal in the movie?

Each song is unique in its own way because each individual song has its own special reason for being. “New Breeze Blowing” is important because it takes the relationship between Lottie and Bastien to new heights (pun intended). But “The Road to Riches” is just as important for several reasons: it gives us an insight into Horace, it allows Lottie and Horace to have »

'The Voice' has weakest Monday ever

22 April 2014 9:40 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

NBC’s The Voice switched to live shows for the first time this cycle on Monday night, but a chunk of viewers shrugged off the next phase of the hit reality competition series.

The Voice was down 15 percent from last week’s episode in the adult demo to mark its lowest Monday performance ever (chart below), yet still once again charted as the night’s top-rated show. The Voice typically tends to dip somewhat when it moves away from the spinny-chairs audition rounds. At least the show provided some high-wire drama when a Top 12 contestant endured a live TV microphone fail. »

CW sets Summer 2014 plans including 'Beauty and the Beast' return

17 April 2014 1:39 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I've said it once and I'll say it again: If you love original filler programming on TV, Summer 2014 will be your Golden Age. The CW is getting in on the summer programming act, which will come as no surprise to anybody paying attention to the network's steady hoarding of offerings like "Seed" and "Backpackers" and "Penn & Teller: Fool Us," as well as the available backlog of episodes for "Beauty and the Beast." On Thursday (April 17), The CW set its summer slate, including the long-awaited -- by some people I'm sure -- return of "Beauty and the Beast," which comes two-plus weeks after the network's upfront presentation to advertisers, presumably cementing the drama's chances of a third season. [Short version: The CW makes its own rules, but several bubble dramas would appear to have a better chance of renewal than "Beauty and the Beast" and that doesn't even include spring success "The 100," which would have to really stumble to not get a no-brainer pick-up at this point.] The CW's summer schedule includes original »

First 'Maleficent' Featurette Shows More of Angelina Jolie's Spells

17 April 2014 1:13 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There's just over two weeks left until The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters, officially kicking off the blockbuster summer season. One of the films arriving in the same month doesn't take a cue from a comic book, but from classic animation. Maleficent tells the story of Sleeping Beauty from the point-of-view of the titular sorceress (Angelina Jolie) who places the infamous curse on the young princess (Elle Fanning), and a new featurette talks more about the revision of the well-known fairytale. Jolie offers some insight into the character, as well as Fanning's memory from her childhood spent absorbing the film. Watch! Here's the first featurette for Robert Stromberg's Maleficent from YouTube: Robert Stromberg (a production designer on Alice in Wonderland and Avatar) is making his directorial debut with Maleficent from a script written by Linda Woolverton (The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast). Angelina Jolie plays the title villain »

Oliver Stone slams co-pros at Beijing

16 April 2014 11:53 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Oliver Stone was characteristically outspoken on the second day of the Beijing International Film Festival (Bjiff), challenging China to rethink international co-productions and start making films that examine its past.

Speaking at the Sino-Foreign Film Co-production Forum, Stone said, “most international co-productions are bullshit”, due to their bad acting and casting, as expecting actors to use a second language usually doesn’t work.

“The international ballgame has gotten bigger and bigger with films like Iron Man 3 and Transformers,” Stone said, referring to the trend of incorporating Chinese elements into studio pictures. “I hope they use China well. But using Chinese actors in the background because you want money is not an artistic approach.”

Stone also said he’s “run into a wall” three times trying to make films in China about Mao Tse-tung, the Cultural Revolution and a documentary around the Beijing Olympics. “Three times I’ve made real efforts to coproduce and come up short »

Beijing Film Festival Aims for International Flavor

15 April 2014 10:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Beijing Intl. Film Festival organizers have given this year’s event a stronger international flavor and more high-tech elements, moves that reflect the Chinese industry’s desire to go global. Festival runs April 16-23.

One big change? This fourth edition features an opening-night screening — something that is standard at other festivals, but which the first three Beijing fests dispensed with, in favor of a pomp and circumstance show befitting the city’s status in the emerging world order and its powerhouse backers, the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television and the Beijing city government.

“The norm for major international film festivals around the world is for the opening film to enjoy a good reputation and respect within the industry. To reflect the international … and market-oriented nature of Bjiff, the organizing committee decided on ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ ” a festival spokesman says.

Dancing With the Stars' Disney Night Recap: Another Celeb Is Sent Home! Plus, Who Received the First Perfect Score?

14 April 2014 7:08 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Let's go to the happiest place on Earth: the ballroom! Dancing  With the Stars went all out (animation included!) for its Disney Night on Monday, April 14, which featured the nine remaining pairings performing dances to classic Disney songs from films such as Frozen, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast and more. After the polarizing Switch Up twist last week, which resulted in some lackluster performances, the celebrities returned to their original dance partners, making for a magical night of competition. Plus, former DWTS champ Donny Osmond stopped by to serve as Disney Night's guest judge, so the pressure was on. Alas, one celeb's time in the ballroom didn't have a fairy tale ending. So »
