ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” returns from its midseason break on March 1, kicking off the second half of its fourth season with an arc centered around the Queens of Darkness — Maleficent (Kristin Bauer van Straten), Cruella de Vil (Victoria Smurfit) and Ursula (Merrin Dungey) — as they join forces with Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle) in pursuit of their own, villainous happy endings.
Variety was among a number of outlets who spoke with “Ouat” exec producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz about the show’s return, including the ominous teaser that debuted during the Oscars telecast and seemed to imply that our hero, Emma (Jennifer Morrison), might somehow be tempted towards to the dark side…
Variety also caught up with Kristin Bauer van Straten to discuss Maleficent’s return and whether the three wicked women will be able to work together. Read on for the trio’s teases about the “Once’s” Sunday premiere, »

As we get older, certain knowledge vacates our brains like cereal pouring out of a box. I can’t remember any formulas from geometry class and I’m not 100-percent certain of my own state bird, but, dammit, I know my Disney characters. We all do. But do we really? We know every word from “Part of Your World” and “Hakuna Matata,” but do we know the performers behind the doe-eyed animated stars? Now, you can say you do. We all know the big stars, like that Mandy Moore was Rapunzel in Tangled or that Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell star in Frozen, but that’s just the tip of the Disney iceberg. Let’s take a peek behind the cartoon curtain and check out the real performers who brought our favorite Disney characters to life.

Compared to the work of Cronenberg, Linklater and Lovecraft, horror drama Spring is out this year. Here's a new trailer...
About an American man who heads to Italy and falls in love with an elusive woman in a small coastal town, Spring starts as a breezy romance before descending into murky body horror territory.
A hit at film festivals last year, Spring is the work of co-directors Justin Benson (who also writes) and Aaron Moorhead (who made the acclaimed indie sci-fi film, Resolution). It stars the Evil Dead remake's Lou Taylor Pucci as the 20-something backpacker, while Germany's Nadia Hilker plays Louise, a girl with far more going on in her private life than at first appears.
Spring is out in Us cinema on the 20th March, and »

“Fifty Shades of Grey” sizzled at the weekend box office, setting new records for the highest-grossing Presidents Day holiday opener of all time and ranking among the biggest R-rated debuts in history.
The erotic drama performed like a comicbook movie, albeit one with much naughtier costumes, picking up $81.7 million from 3,646 locations over the three-day period. That easily trumped the holiday’s previous record-holder, the 2010 debut of the romantic comedy “Valentine’s Day,” which kicked off with $56.3 million.
“It had that whole sex thing going for it, it was edgy, and it started a conversation,” said Paul Dergarabedian, senior box office analyst at Rentrak. “It went beyond being a girls’ night out movie and became a date night movie.”
“Fifty Shades of Grey” will do more than $90 million over the four-day holiday, in addition to triggering a massive increase in heart palpitations across the moviegoing public. Among the many high-water marks the saucy tale has hit, »

Oscar nominee “Big Hero 6” is on track this weekend to become the No. 3 all-time domestic earner for Walt Disney Animation Studios, passing the $218.9 million of “Beauty and the Beast” (after “Frozen” and “The Lion King”). One factor in the film’s success is the new approach at Disney Animation, says president Andrew Millstein, “which is about elevating storytelling and putting filmmakers at the center of the process.”
It sounds like a no-brainer for a film company to focus on filmmakers. But in the past, Disney Animation was often administrative-driven, with layers of notes from executives that dictated content and bogged down the creatives.
“Big Hero 6″ provides a one-two punch for the studio after last year’s “Frozen.” “Big Hero 6″ boasts flashy work in the San Fransokyo setting and the action sequences, but the center of the film is the relationship between inflatable robot Baymax and tech prodigy Hiro. »

A romantic Disney fan has given his girlfriend a unique Valentine's present by having her painted as famous Disney Princesses.
Brian Flynn teamed up with illustrator Dylan Bonner to create the pictures.
Flynn said: "I want our relationship to be as epic and timeless as the animations we grew up on, so I decided to have us painted into some famous Disney scenes and surprise her for Valentines Day."
He added: "It's been a secret for 3 months, and I can't wait to show her!"
The paintings are from a variety of Disney films including Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid and Aladdin.
Artist Bonner was excited to be part of the project.
"I feel very lucky to have done these, especially after reading her say that girls like her didn't always get to identify with a Disney princess," she said. "I seriously love that I got to change that! »

If you really want to do something special for your valentine this year, the key is to make it personal. Don't just hand her cards featuring the Disney princesses in romantic scenes, even if he or she really, really loves Disney animated movies. Instead, take a tip from the guy who got artist Dylan Bonner to draw him and his girlfriend in those scenes. Just maybe don't completely copy his idea. The guy is Redditor "BrianDangerFlynn," and he shared the following five images and the one above, in which a cartoon version of his valentine fills in for Rapunzel from Tangled, Mulan from Mulan, Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Jasmine from Aladdin and Ariel from The Little Mermaid (twice). The guy had himself inserted into a few of...

The CW has set a Season 3 premiere date for "Beauty and the Beast" and, in an added bonus for fans of the low-rated drama, the network also renewed the series. The 13-episode third season of "Beauty and the Beast" will premiere on Thursday, May 21 at 8 p.m. That's the day after the formal end of the 2014-2015 Nielsen season and the week after network TV upfronts were going set schedules for the 2015-2016 season, but at least fans of the drama won't have to worry about a fourth season. That newly ordered fourth season will premiere at some point during the 2015-2016 or, more likely, during the summer after the 2015-2016 season, unless something strange happens. Last spring and summer, CW President Mark Pedowitz was asked multiple times why "Beauty and the Beast," which got pulled from its in-season slot due to minuscule numbers, earned a renewal while shows with »

The CW has renewed fan favorite, though low-rated, “Beauty and the Beast” for a fourth season to run during the 2015-2016 season. The fairytale drama premieres its 13-episode third season on Thursday, May 21 at 8 p.m. The renewal is a huge vote of confidence for the show, which sank to a .29 rating in the advertiser-coveted Adults 18-49 demographic and averaged 800,000 viewers.

Emma Thompson is in talks to star in the live action film version of Disney's 'Beauty And The Beast'. The 55-year-old star is wanted to play the role of Mrs Potts, the housekeeper who's turned into a teapot in the iconic story, the Daily Mail newspaper reports. Mrs Potts assists Belle - the heroine of the story, played by Emma Watson - to sort out her romantic stresses. The film's director Bill Condon has been working with composer Alan Menken to determine which songs from the 1991 animated movie will make the cut in the eagerly-awaited live action film. Last month, meanwhile, Emma Watson revealed she'd been cast in the role of Belle and had already started singing lessons in preparation for the musical role. Writing on her Facebook page, Emma said: ''I'm finally able to tell you... that I will be playing Belle in Disney's new live-action Beauty and the Beast! »

Do you believe in fairies?
Well, you should. The world of fairies, led by Neverland's spritely pixie Tinker Bell, has been dramatized over a half-dozen animated films from the talented folks at DisneyToon Studios. And they keep getting better and better. The latest (and best) is "Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast," which sees Tink's confederate Fawn (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin from ABC's "Once Upon a Time") befriending a potentially fearsome creature called the NeverBeast. It's cute and heartwarming and really, really fun. (Yes, it might even tug on your heartstrings.)
The movie comes out on home video platforms on March 3rd, and to celebrate we have an exclusive clip from the movie, along with our chat with Goodwin, who turned out to be the biggest Disney geek around.
In the clip, Fawn explains to the other fairies (including Tinker Bell) about the NeverBeast, including the prophecy that »
