17 hours ago | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Of the five networks, The CW has the fewest hours of primetime to fill but they're not finding it any easier to find hits. Most of their returning shows are way down year-to-year and some of their new series are struggling. Which will be cancelled or renewed? Stay tuned!

New CW shows (so far): The Originals, Reign, and The Tomorrow People.

Returning shows (so far): Arrow, Beauty and the Beast, The Carrie Diaries, Hart of Dixie, Nikita, Supernatural, and The Vampire Diaries.

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.

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 »

Bill Condon Could Direct Live-Action Beauty And The Beast For Disney

11 April 2014 2:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ever since Disney grossed a billion dollars on Alice in Wonderland back in 2010 (something I’ll never understand), the House of Mouse has been eager to create live-action adaptations of all their animated classics. From The Jungle Book to Cinderella, the studio is digging deep into their catalogue in hopes of bringing back some of their most beloved films.

We’ve known for quite some time that Disney was looking to put together a live-action take on Beauty and the Beast, but until today, we hadn’t heard anything other than that they had hired a writer. Now, thanks to Film Divider, we’re learning that Bill Condon is rumored to be in talks with the studio to direct. This news should be taken with a grain of salt, as it hasn’t been confirmed by any type of official source. However, if you give it some thought, it actually makes some sense. »

Rumor: Could Bill Condon Direct Disney’s Live-Action Beauty And The Beast?

11 April 2014 1:35 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though it’s taken a few years to come to fruition, Disney’s billion-dollar-grossing Alice in Wonderland kicked off a new trend for the studio in 2010.  It has slowly been working on live-action adaptations of some of the studio’s classic animated films, and we’ll see the next one this May in the form of Maleficent, which tells the Sleeping Beauty story from the villain’s point of view.  After that, we have Kenneth Branagh’s live-action Cinderella set for release in March 2015, Jon Favreau is directing a live-action take on The Jungle Book for release in October 2015, and there is also a redo of Beauty and the Beast in the works. While Disney set a writer on Beauty and the Beast early last year, we haven’t heard much more about the project in the interim.  However, if a new report is to be believed, the studio may »

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'The Lion King'

11 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

From the now-iconic opening note of that incredible beginning sequence, viewers of The Lion King knew they were in for a very special treat: A Disney animated movie that — thanks to its compelling story about the circle of life, an all-star voice cast that included Jeremy Irons, Matthew Broderick, and James Earl Jones, and that music — would appeal to adults just as much as the kids that begged their parents to take them to theaters.

The Lion King followed Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and Aladdin in an era that came to be known as the Disney Renaissance. »

11 April 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Beauty And The Beast has enchanted audiences worldwide, and it feels like every year there's a new, thinly-veiled stab at it. It's a flexible story, of course: guy is a monster, girl is lovely, she sees through his grossness, he accepts her fabulousness. Disney is here to brush away the CW's Beauty And The Beast and stuff like Beastly, however, to reclaim the throne. The Beast is comin' back, y'all. Film Divider's Twitter account recently revealed that Disney, attempting to relaunch their animated works into live action, has found a director: Expect Breaking Dawn and Gods and Monsters' Bill Condon to direct Disney's live action take on Beauty and the Beast. pic.twitter.com/5Ia03vRU6a.
