Time Machine: Lawrence Is Dazzling Woman in Red

19 hours ago | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Jennifer Lawrence in a long, red dress at the Oscars Jennifer Lawrence at the Academy Awards Stunning in a red dress, Jennifer Lawrence arrives at the 2011 Academy Awards held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Lawrence was a first-time Best Actress Oscar nominee for her first major film role: a near-destitute, young Ozark woman looking for her missing drug-dealing father in Winter's Bone, Debra Granik's generally well-received indie drama. Winter's Bone also earned nominations for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (John Hawkes), and Best Adapted Screenplay (Debra Granik and Anne Rosellini; based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell). Jennifer Lawrence's competitors in the Best Actress Oscar race were: Annette Bening for Lisa Cholodenko's The Kids Are All Right. Michelle Williams for Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine. Nicole Kidman for John Cameron Mitchell's Rabbit Hole. Natalie Portman, the eventual winner, for Darren Aronofsky's Black Swan. »

Ewan McGregor To Light Up ‘Beauty And The Beast’ As Lumiere

23 April 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ewan McGregor, maybe better known as a young Obi Wan Kenobi, is reportedly in the final stages of signing on to join the live-action remake of Disney’s Beauty And The Beast.

McGregor will play Lumiere, the confident, show-stealing maitre d’/candelabra, who gets his own solo in catchy tune Be Our Guest. Ewan is no stranger to singing, having blown minds in the 2001 musical drama Moulin Rouge.

It’s not like Beauty And The Beast needs much more star power. If a deal is made he’ll be featuring alongside Emma Watson (Belle), Dan Stevens (Beast/Prince), Luke Evans (Gaston), Josh Gad (Le Fou), Ian McKellen (Cogsworth), Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts), Kevin Kline (Maurice), Stanley Tucci (Cadenza), Audra McDonald (Garderobe), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Plumette) and Adrian Schiller (Monsieur D’Arque). Now that’s a cast!

Ewan McGregor joins live-action 'Beauty and the Beast'

21 April 2015 6:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ewan McGregor is the latest to join what’s shaping up to be quite the lovely cast for Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast.” The Scottish actor will play Lumiere, The Hollywood Reporter posted Tuesday. The charming McGregor seems well-suited for the suave, free-spirited candelabra, and we bet he’ll have way too much fun working with Ian McKellen, who’s playing Lumiere’s buddy Cogsworth. Now just imagine — the star of “Moulin Rouge!” belting out “Be Our Guest.” We’ll give you a moment to dwell on that wonderful thought. It’s not totally clear which songs will be in this film, but word is that it will feature a score by Alan Menken, who won two Oscars for Disney’s 1991 animated “Beauty and the Beast,” plus new recordings of the 1991 movie’s songs and new songs by Menken and Tim Rice. Also announced today: Stanley Tucci will be in the film, »

Ewan McGregor to Play Lumiere in Disney's 'Beauty and the Beast'

21 April 2015 1:22 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Not too long ago, Ian McKellen was secured to play the butler turned clock named Cogsworth in Disney's forthcoming live-action Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens in the title romantic roles. Now Cogsworth's suave counterpart Lumiere has been cast as well with THR reporting Moulin Rouge and Star Wars prequel trilogy star Ewan McGregor has landed the role of the maitre d' who is turned into a candelabra due to the curse put upon the prince and his castle. Fans will know Lumiere well since he leads the iconic musical number "Be Our Guest," featuring a cavalcade of dancing dishes. As we've previously reported, the rest of the cast includes Luke Evans as the dastardly Gaston, Josh Gad as his sidekick Le Fou, Kevin Kline as Belle's father, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts and Audra McDonald as Garderobe. McGregor hasn't gotten musical since his starring turn in Moulin Rogue, »

Ewan McGregor In Final Talks For Disney’s Beauty And The Beast

21 April 2015 1:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ewan McGregor is the latest in a long line of A-list talent set to join Disney’s star-studded Beauty And The Beast adaptation. The live-action riff on the studio’s 1991 animated smash kicked off production last week, so it stands to reason that the final casting announcements would begin to surface.

Per THR, McGregor is now in the last stages of sealing a deal to play Lumiere. It’s not described as a leading role – as they’ve all been secured – but it is a major supporting turn. Those of you desperate for more of McGregor’s sonorous delights, as witnessed in Moulin Rouge, should still find plenty to be happy about here. Lumiere is in the Prince’s employ as his head maitre d’, who is struck by the curse which befalls the Prince’s abode and transformed into a candelabra. He is set to perform as part of »

Beauty And The Beast Adds Ewan McGregor as Lumiere; Stanley Tucci as New Character [Updated]

21 April 2015 12:59 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ewan McGregor is in final negotiations to join the cast of Disney's live-action adaptation of the animated classic Beauty and the Beast. THR reports that McGregor will play Lumiere, the vivacious and charming maître d' who is transformed into a candelabra when the prince's castle is cursed. McGregor is another fine addition to the already excellent cast of Emma Watson as Belle, Kevin Kline as Belle’s father, Maurice, Dan Stevens as Beast, Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as Le Fou, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth and Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts. Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, Gods and Monsters) is directing from a script written by Evan Spiliotopoulos and rewritten by Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower). [caption id="attachment_447527" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Disney[/caption] Lumiere performs the show-stopping number "Be Our Guest", and with Alan Menkin and Tim Rice composing new songs for the film, McGregor's talents should be put to good use. »

Ewan McGregor to Play Lumiere in Live Action 'Beauty and the Beast'

21 April 2015 12:44 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Disney's live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast has finally rounded out its primary cast. Lumiere, the candlestick who gets to perform the musical's fan favorite number "Be Our Guest", will be played by Ewan McGregor, marking his return to movie musicals after 2001's Best Picture nominee Moulin Rouge! (I'm still surprised that movie was nominated for Best Picture). That film may not be the greatest, though quite a bit of fun, but Ewan McGregor showed he knows how to act and sing. Obviously, Christian in that movie is a very different character than Lumiere, which is a comic character part. I think of McGregor as the leading man type, but this could be an interesting part for him, and I'm quite interested to see if he pulls it off. He joins the previously announced star studded cast that features Emma Watson as Belle, Dan Stevens as the Beast, »

Review: 'The Age of Adeline' is gorgeous but also a complete mess

17 April 2015 2:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Nothing is more frustrating than watching a film with so much potential make one disastrous mistake after another. That, sadly, is the disappointing reality of Lee Toland Kreiger's "The Age of Adaline." The movie's premise is easy to grasp: 29-year-old Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) was born at the turn of the century, but after a strange car accident in the 1930's she discovers she will not age a single day more.  Decades pass as her daughter ages beyond her, and she begins taking false identities to avoid being discovered by the press or, worse, government agents who might have suspicions about her status.  The latter might also want to make her a guinea pig to discover why she's become immortal (a story tangent the film quickly abandons). By 2014, Bowman seems resigned to a life of loneliness until Ellis Jones (Michiel Huisman of "Game of Thrones") spots her across the room »

Outlander Recap: Frenemies

11 April 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The bagpipes of the credits fade out and within ten seconds we have nipple. Within 30 seconds we have realization that Jamie’s very red hair is between Claire’s very white thighs, and within a minute we have — well, the beginnings of an orgasm, anyway, interrupted by vociferous knocking at the door. Holy coitus interruptus, Batman!The news important enough to make Jamie get dressed for is that the Duke of Sandringham is coming. (Well, at least someone is!) Jamie is excited, Claire full of foreboding. Sounding a lot like Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge, she warns Jamie not to trust “the duke.” Are there any not-evil dukes? One wonders. “A friend of Jack Randall’s can be no friend of yours,” says Claire. But Jamie is too excited by potentially getting a pardon and getting to go home to his estate, Lollybroch.

Pucker up, because the 2015 MTV Movie Awards are just a few days away. And what the Best Picture Oscar is to the Academy Awards, the coveted Best Kiss popcorn trophy is to the MTV Movie Awards.

We won’t find out which smooching duo will join the ranks of MTV Movie Awards history until Sunday, so we decided to honor the previous winners that paved the way for them.

Exclusive: Blake Lively is radiant in final 'Age of Adaline' poster

26 March 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

April is just around the corner and that means there are a bunch of highly anticipated movies on deck.  "Fast 7," "Ex Machina" and, of course, "Avengers: Age of Ultron."  One film that you should really pay attention to, however, is "The Age of Adaline." Directed by Lee Toland Krieger ("Celeste and Jesse Forever"), "Adaline" is an original story about a woman (Blake Lively) who magically or accidentally stops aging after a major car accident.  As the years pass she sees her friends and family get old and die as she continues to somehow enjoy immorality.  Can she truly continue "living" this way? The movie's trailer does a superb job of teasing how the film recreates a 100 years of our heroine's life thanks to some amazing costumes by Oscar winner Angus Straithe ("Moulin Rouge!"), a beautiful score by composer Rob Simonsen ("Foxcatcher," "The Spectacular Now") and some impressive cinematography by relative newcomer David Lanzenberg. »
