Though not likely to release until 2017, a first trailer has landed online:

Did you spot your favourite horror icon? In our chat Crampton revealed that Hodder will be taking a central role and the trailer definitely seems to reflect that.

So what’s Death House all about? Well the official synopsis is thus:

First Look: Lumiere and Cogsworth From Disney’s Live-Action ‘Beauty And The Beast’

26 August 2016 10:16 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

So far we haven’t seen much from Disney’s live-action adaptation of Beauty And The Beast, just a teaser trailer teasing some of the iconic locations and our new Beauty. Directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, Gods and Monsters) the film stars Emma Watson as the new Beauty and Dan Stevens as the new […]

Watch the Teaser for the Live-Action ‘Beauty and the Beast’

24 May 2016 1:31 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

So apparently live-action adaptations of Disney classics are the new big thing. Or at least, the House of Mouse is trying very hard to make it the new big thing. From my perspective, it seems like it hasn’t quite caught on yet, since I recall Cinderella not making a massive splash. Still, their Alice in Wonderland movie made a fair amount at the box office, so I suppose the train rolls on. The latest of Disney’s back catalogue to go three-dimensional is Beauty and the Beast, courtesy of director Bill Condon, a director with a surprisingly varied filmography. There’s Gods and Monsters, his film about the late life of Frankenstein director James Whale, and more recently Mr Holmes, which was in many respects the same film but with Ian McKellan playing an elderly Sherlock Holmes and no hunky gardener. And then there’s the time he directed one of the Candyman sequels, »

Beauty And The Beast: first trailer for Disney's live action remake

Emma Watson stars in the live action retelling of Disney's Beauty And The Beast. Here's the first trailer...

Cards on the table time: I utterly adore Disney’s animated take on Beauty And The Beast. It remains one of my favourite movies of all time. I can and will bore you about it for hours.

It’s with mixed feelings I come, then, to the new live action take on the movie, that’s heading into cinemas next year. It’s being directed by Bill Condon (whose work covers Twilight films right back to the brilliant Gods And Monsters), and he’s attracted a terrific cast to help tell the story.

The first trailer for the live action Beauty And The Beast has just been released, and it’s giving little away thus far. But take a look and see what you reckon – then I heartily recommend »

The Vampire Diaries season 7 episode 22 review: Gods And Monsters

The Vampire Diaries season seven finale is the least eventful in the show's history...

This review contains spoilers.

7.22 Gods And Monsters

So we've finally reached the end of our first Elena-free year of The Vampire Diaries, and it's been a perplexing year for the show. Not a series that could ever be described as consistent, season seven has been more up and down than most (which beats completely down), and this finale really just sums up that journey.

Gods And Monsters is such an odd episode for season seven to end on, because it's actually a very average episode of the show. I'd go as far as to say that it's the least eventful finale of the entire series, and that's even stranger when you consider that the penultimate episode featured the kind of big, sweeping emotional moments that we've come to expect. Here, it's one big »

Magical New Trailer For Kubo And The Two Strings Makes Its Bow

10 March 2016 11:25 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Gods and monsters await in the magical new trailer for Kubo and the Two StringsTravis Knight’s hotly-anticipated animation that is arriving by way of Laika and Focus Features.

As the studio behind such instant animated classics as Coraline and ParaNorman, there’s a crackle of excitement going into the release of Kubo, particularly considering that the feature acts as Knight’s directorial debut. He’ll be flanked by Laika alum Marc Haimes and Chris Butler, who penned the script for this summer’s swashbuckling epic.

Centering on the magical journey of the title hero (played by Game of Thrones actor Art Parkinson), Kubo and the Two Strings opens with our kindhearted and humble protagonist caring for an ageing mother. But when he inadvertently summons an ancient spirit from the past, he recruits a crack team of adventurers, including Monkey (Charlize Theron) and Beetle (Matthew McConaughey).

Is Sam Smith the First Openly Gay Man to Win an Oscar? Not Exactly

28 February 2016 10:10 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

At the Oscars Sunday, Sam Smith followed up his moving performance with an even more emotional acceptance speech. "I read an article a few months ago by Sir Ian McKellen, and he said that no openly gay man had ever won an Oscar," said Smith, 23, who won Best Original Song thanks to his hit "Writing's on the Wall" from the latest James Bond film, Spectre. Smith continued: "If this is the case - even if it isn't the case - I want to dedicate this to the Lgbt community all around the world." Although there aren't any openly gay male »

Sam Smith Upsets Lady Gaga for Best Original Song Oscar

28 February 2016 8:43 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sam Smith’s “Spectre” song “Writing’s On the Wall” won the best original song Oscar Sunday, upsetting Lady Gaga and songwriter Diane Warren’s anti-rape ballad “Til It Happens To You” from the documentary “The Hunting Ground.”

“I stand here as a proud, gay man and I hope one day we can all stand as equals,” Smith said, noting he had been told he would be the first out gay man to ever win an Academy Award. However, Elton John, who won best song for “The Lion King,” and Bill Condon, who won for “Gods and Monsters,” are among previous out gay winners.

Warren was aiming for her first win after being nominated seven times previously for songs like “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” from “Mannequin,” “How Do I Live” from “Con Air” and “I Don’t Want To Miss a Thing” from “Armageddon.”

‘Batman: Bad Blood’ Review

25 February 2016 2:01 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jason O’Mara, Yvonne Strahovski, Stuart Allan, Sean Maher, Morena Baccarin, Steve Blum, Gaius Charles, John Dimaggio, Robin Atkin Downes, James Garrett, Ernie Hudson, Christine Lakin, Vanessa Marshall | Written by J.M. DeMatteis | Directed by Jay Oliva

Plot:

After Batman goes missing, Dick Grayson takes up his mantle as He and Damian Wayne have to protect Gotham City, while also trying to find the original Batman. Two new allies, Batwoman and Batwing arrive to help investigate Batman’s disappearance.

Verdict:

So here we are with another ‘Original’ movie from DC, who were once a Juggernaut when it came to releasing a constant stream of excellent animated movies that eclipsed the majority of DC’s live-action catalogue. But it does appear (apart from a few films like Jl: Gods and Monsters and Batman: Assault on Arkham) that things are not going to change any time soon (especially with how Justice League vs. »

Oscars 2016: Ian McKellen asks why no gay man has ever won Best Actor

26 January 2016 2:38 AM, PST | The Independent | See recent The Independent news »

The current diversity debate surrounding the 2016 Academy Awards has squarely settled on the issue of race, thanks to conversations sparked by the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite. Yet, Sir Ian McKellen offered a keen reminder that diversity issues within the awards race are widespread. "No openly gay man has ever won the Oscar. I wonder if that is prejudice or chance," he reflected at a recent BFI event (via The Guardian). McKellen, of course, is openly gay himself; as well as being a committed activist and co-founder of Lgbt charity Stonewall. He further mentioned both occasions he'd carried an acceptance speech to the Academy Awards marked with the words, "I'm proud to be the first openly gay man to win the Oscar"; though he's never been given the opportunity to say those words on stage. His Best Actor nomination for Gods and Monsters in 1998 saw him lose to Roberto Benigni for Life is Beautiful, »

Two-time Academy Award nominee Ian McKellen is weighing in on the controversy over the lack of diversity at the Oscars, pointing out that black actors aren't the only ones getting left out. "As a representative of the industry they're in, it's receiving complaints which I fully sympathize with," the actor, 76, told Sky News when asked for comment about the fact that the Academy has nominated only white actors for the second year in a row. "It's not only black people who've been disregarded by the film industry, it used to be women, it's certainly gay people to this day. And these are all legitimate complaints, »

Ian McKellen Says Gay Actors Are ‘Disregarded’ by Hollywood

25 January 2016 11:52 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the Academy works to remedy Hollywood’s inclusion issue, Sir Ian McKellen is stressing the need to broaden the definition of the word diversity. McKellen says that gay actors are being “disregarded” and ignored by Hollywood as much as African Americans are.

McKellan, who is the co-founder of the Lgbt rights charity Stonewall, said the criticism facing the Academy for the lack of diversity at the Oscars is “legitimate.”

“As a representative of the industry they’re in, it’s receiving complaints which I fully sympathize with,” the 76-year-old actor said while speaking to Sky News. “It’s not only black people who’ve been disregarded by the film industry, it used to be women, it’s certainly gay people to this day. And these are all legitimate complaints and the Oscars are the focus of those complaints, of course.”
