We keep hearing that vampires, werewolves, witches and angels are losing steam in pop culture, that people want real drama these days. Um, not as long as Internet fandoms around! You can’t take away our eternal love and lust for the shirt-ripping shapeshifters of Teen Wolf, the muscled gods of Thor, the seductive witches of American Horror Story: Coven or the blood-sucking immortals of The Vampire Diaries. One look at the fervor for 2014′s Vampire Academy and you know there’s a future in fangs.
This is our third year of running this annual poll, which started off with just vampires, but was expanded last year to include all sorts of magical creatures (it was Beauty and the Beast’s Vincent who won an epic battle against The Mortal Instruments‘ warlock Magnus in 2012). We decided to make this a list of 30 this year, but that meant »

Disney Channel is adding even more oomph to its push to turn Dove Cameron into a signature star for the Mouse House. She’s been cast as the lead in its “Descendants” telepic revolving around the offspring of iconic Disney villains.
Cameron will play Mal, daughter of Maleficent, the evil witch from 1959′s “Sleeping Beauty.” She’s the ringleader of a group of teenage kids of famed Disney villains who wind up tangling with the good-hearted son of the King and Queen from “Beauty and the Beast,” among others.
Kenny Ortega is directing the telepic, which is set to begin production in the spring for a 2015 debut. That timing ensures that the teenage Mal character will draft off the attention for Angelina Jolie’s turn as the horn-bedecked baddie in the live-action “Maleficent,” set for release next summer.

Ever wondered what the offspring of Cruella De Vil and Jafar might be like? The Disney Channel is certainly hoping so.
The network announced on Thursday (Dec. 12) that it had put into production "Descendants," a live-action adventure-comedy original film that tells the modern day story of the teenage progeny of some of Disney's most evil villains (Cruella, Jafar, Maleficent and the Evil Queen) as they question their evil lineage.
The official description of the film, to be directed by Kenny Ortega ("High School Musical") from Disney: "In a present day idyllic kingdom, the benevolent teenaged son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle from Disney's iconic "Beauty and the Beast") is poised to take the throne. His first proclamation: offer a chance at redemption to the trouble-making offspring of Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, the Evil Queen and Jafar who have been imprisoned on a forbidden island with all the other villains, »
There are to be many story lines written this awards season such as American Hustle vs. The Wolf of Wall Street (or what movie is more like a Scorcese film than the other), 12 Years a Slave vs. the field, etc. However one of the more fun storylines can be derived from the animated race, where two heavyweight titans duking it out in the Animated Oscar race. Walt Disney Animation Studios and Dreamworks Animation have been engaging in a competative rivalry since they first squared off in the Animated Feature race in 2001. With two big box office hits in Frozen and The Croods, could we be in for another big battle?
To understand why this has been such a fun, yet at times petty, rivalry you’d need to realize that these two companies are headed by men with shard history. Jeffrey Katzenberg was the man responsible for the big turnaround »

In a present day idyllic kingdom, the benevolent teenaged son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle from Disney’s iconic Beauty and the Beast) is poised to take the throne. His first proclamation: offer a chance at redemption to the trouble-making offspring of Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, the Evil Queen and Jafar who have been imprisoned on a forbidden island with all the other villains, sidekicks, evil step-mothers and step-sisters. These villainous descendants (Carlos, Mal, Evvie and Jay, respectively) are allowed into the kingdom to attend prep school alongside the offspring of iconic Disney heroes including Fairy Godmother, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Mulan. However, the evil teens face a dilemma. Should they follow in their nefarious parents’ footsteps and help all the villains »

In the past few years, thanks primarily to the extraordinary string of creative and commercial successes rolling out of the Pixar Studios, animated films and writing honors haven’t been mutually exclusive terms. Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” garnered a best picture nomination back in 1991, leading to new respectability for the animation world’s contributions and the eventual addition of an animated feature category at the Oscars.
Decades before this hard-won respect became a semi-regular aspect of awards season, there was a writer named Frank Tashlin who made the move from the then-relatively disreputable field of animated shorts into the big leagues of feature film writing.

"Star-Crossed" premieres first, at 8 p.m. Et Monday, Feb. 17, leading into "Beauty and the Beast." The near-future Romeo and Juliet story of the love between a human girl and an alien boy should make for a rather epic night of romance with the returning "BatB."

The show will take the slot currently occupied by "The Tomorrow People" on Wednesdays at 9 p.m., beginning on March 19. Lead-in series "Arrow" will remain in place to finish out its Season 2.

The songstress selected a slew of festive frocks for her 2013 Christmas special — but which look did you love? Vote.
Kelly Clarkson radiated in a variety of red looks on stage during her Christmas special, a Cautionary Christmas Music Tale, on NBC on Dec. 11, where the pregnant songstress wowed her fans with both her singing and her style.
Kelly Clarkson Christmas Special Dress — ‘Cautionary Christmas Music Tale’:
We thought she looked amazing on stage as she donned a romantic, red off-the-shoulder dress that reminded us of a modern day Belle from Beauty and the Beast — and that wasn’t the only red look she rocked on stage! She also showed off a lace dress and a beautiful gown that featured red florals and a sheer insert at the chest. Her only look that didn’t feature red was a floral, short-sleeved frock, which she sported while wearing her hair in a ponytail. »

Interview Simon Brew 12 Dec 2013 - 06:55
A weird start to an interview, this one. I was sat patiently outside the door of a posh London hotel, when a man wheeled a trolley of warm, nice-smelling food into the toilet. I've heard that these posh hotels cloud some bizarre behaviour, but canapes on the bidet was a new one on me.
We ran a non-spoilery interview with directors Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck on the film's release day in the UK. But the pair also granted us a bit of extra time to chat in more detail about the film. What follows, then, is the kind of interview that it's best not to read until you've seen the film. Right from question one, in fact. »
Released in the UK this past weekend, Frozen became the 53rd feature to join the ‘Animated Classics’ from Walt Disney Animation Studios, and its two lead characters, Elsa and Anna, are set to become the twelfth and thirteenth Official Disney Princesses, respectively.
The point I’m trying to make in that rather long-winded introduction is that new Disney films don’t arrive in a vacuum. There’s a certain expectation that comes with that ‘Animated Classics’ tag (which many have failed to live up to in the past), and there are also positive and negative connotations inevitably attached to anything that comes out of the House of Mouse – especially if that something happens to be a Disney Princess movie.
So it was a huge relief to see that Frozen seems to have been received warmly by critics and audiences alike, with many praising Disney’s treatment and depiction of its princess characters. »

Scott will play the role of Sam, an archaeologist who crosses path with Catherine and Vincent. According to EW.com, Sam has been living in isolation for several years -- possibly involuntarily. The experience has changed him, as you would expect.
Perhaps because of his past, Sam is described as a man with a short fuse "who can be charming on one hand and manic on the other."
Is he a beast? Whether Sam is or not, he definitely shares some characteristics with those who have mutated DNA.
First skyrocketing to prominence in 1996's "That Thing You Do!," Scott has appeared in numerous movies and TV shows over his career. Although most recently seen in "Southland," other TV roles have included "Gcb," "Sons of Anarchy," "Law & Order" and "ER. »
