Dan Stevens shares Beauty and the Beast cast selfie

15 April 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Pre-production on Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast has begun and the Beast himself, Dan Stevens has given us our first look at the cast.

The actor posted a partial cast selfie to Instagram earlier today (on what also happens to be star Emma Watson’s 25th birthday) and the movie already looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun!

Stevens has rounded up co-stars Josh Gad (Le Fou), Luke Evans (Gaston), Kevin Kline (Maurice), and Emma Watson (Belle) for their group shot.

The only cast members missing are Emma Thompson who stars as Mrs. Potts, Gugu Mbatha-Raw who is playing Plumette, and Audra McDonald as the wardrobe Madame de la Grande Bouche.  Rumours have been swirling that Oscar winner Jean Dujardin has been eyed for the role of Lumiere and we have to admit, that would pretty much be perfect casting.  It was just confirmed »

Beauty And The Beast Snags Ian McKellen For Cogsworth

13 April 2015 9:04 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

However you feel about Disney plumbing its past fairy tales for big screen redos, there’s no denying that the studio’s casting choices for Bill Condon’s upcoming Beauty and the Beast have been spot-on. With Emma Watson in the role of Belle, and Dan Stevens and Luke Evans vying for her affections as the Beast and Gaston (respectively), the film looks increasingly like a must-see for acting aficionados. Now, the production has attracted another A-lister, with news that X-Men‘s Ian McKellen is taking on the role of Cogsworth.

In the original Disney flick, Cogsworth was the loyal butler to the Prince who was magically transformed into a clock by the same spell that turned his master into a savage beast.

McKellen joins a supporting cast that also includes Josh Gad as Gaston’s right hand man LeFou, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Kevin Kline as Maurice, and Audra MacDonald as Garderobe. »

MTV Movie Awards predictions: Is Zac Efron still the best at being shirtless?

9 April 2015 5:12 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

Best Shirtless Performance is a relatively new category at the MTV Movie Awards. It has been handed out only twice before, awarded to Taylor Lautner ("Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2") in 2013 and Zac Efron ("That Awkward Moment") in 2014. Efron is back this year, nominated this time for doffing his clothes in the hit comedy "Neighbors," and he's the overwhelming favorite to repeat. -Break- Last year, we predictors weren't so convinced. We actually ranked Efron fourth with 20/1 odds, behind Jennifer Aniston ("Were the Millers"), Chris Hemsworth ("Thor: The Dark World"), and our presumed frontrunner Sam Claflin ("The Hunger Games: Catching Fire"). We had thought, perhaps, that the "Hunger Games" juggernaut would crush any support for "That Awkward Moment," but the power of Efron's fandom took us by surprise.

Box Office: 'Furious 7' on Track for $150M Opening Weekend

4 April 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Most franchises don't make it to movie 7 without losing some of the audience and its precious box office take, but the exact opposite is true when it comes to the Fast and Furious franchise, which continues to gain fans and grow with each new release. Yesterday saw the opening debut of Furious 7, which exceeded expectations, setting a new benchmark for the action-packed saga. The film pulled in an estimated $67.3 million on Friday (which includes Thursday previews).

Furious 7 serves as an emotional farewell for franchise mainstay Paul Walker, who passed away unexpectedly in the midst of shooting this sequel. The film pulled in $15.8 million when it screened in select theaters across the country on Thursday night, beating the previous April record holder for Thursday screenings, Captain America: The Winter Soldier. That Marvel release took in an estimated $10.2 million when it opened at this time last year. Furious 7 expanded into over 4,000 theaters on Friday, »

Furious 7 Destroys Box-Office Competition

4 April 2015 8:58 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The James Wan–piloted Furious 7 destroyed its box-office competition on Thursday and Friday, pulling in a gargantuan $67.3 million gross, including $15.8 million in Thursday night showings. (That's 54 percent ahead of its predecessor's three-day gross and 26 percent of its predecessor's four-day gross.) It's also the ninth-biggest Friday opening ever, trailing only Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 ($91 million), The Avengers ($80 million), The Dark Knight Rises ($75.7 million), Twilight: New Moon ($72.6 million), Twilight: Breaking Dawn I ($71.6 million), Breaking Dawn II ($71.1 million), Hunger Games: Catching Fire ($70.9 million), and Iron Man 3 ($68.8 million). Interestingly, Furious 7 is the only one of the aforementioned films not based on a book (or comic, as it were). Even more interestingly, Furious 7 is also the only of the aforementioned films whose opening-day gross is not the result of a massive midnight/Thursday opening.As Forbes's Scott Mendelson »

‘Furious 7′ Racing to Huge $140 Million Opening Weekend

3 April 2015 5:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Universal’s “Furious 7″ is speeding toward a record-setting opening weekend of nearly $140 million at 4,004 U.S. locations, according to revised Friday estimates.

Furious 7″ blasted off with $58 million to $60 million on Friday — including $15.8 million in 3,069 Thursday-night showings that started at 7 p.m. in the U.S.

Recent estimates had placed the Friday-Sunday number at $115 million, which were revised upward early Friday to as much as $125 million. But Friday’s afternoon numbers — based on West Coast matinees and East Coast early evening screenings — indicated that the Easter weekend would finish between $135 million and $138 million.

The film, starring Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel and the late Paul Walker, will easily set a record for an April opening weekend should the estimates hold. The current April record holder, Marvel-Disney’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” opened with $95 million on the same weekend last year.

All signals now suggest that the “Furious 7″ opening »

Box Office: 'Furious 7' takes in $15.8 million Thursday as $100 million+ weekend awaits

3 April 2015 12:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Furious 7" put the pedal to the metal on Thursday night taking in $15.8 million from early screenings.  The last movie in the franchise, "Fast & Furious 6," earned just $6.5 million from early screenings.  Yes, to reiterate the obvious, Universal Pictures has a major blockbuster on its hands. Industry estimates now have "Furious 7" earning somewhere between $130-150 million over the three-day weekend.  Before this installment, "Furious 6" was the top opener in the series taking in $97.3 million and top earner making $238.6 million domestically and $788 million globally in 2013.  Those franchise records will easily fall over the next few weeks. Historically, "Furious 7" also has a chance to enter the top 10 list of the biggest openings of all-time.  "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Pt. 2" currently holds the 10th spot with $141 million.

5 Things Every Parent Needs to Know About 'Insurgent'

20 March 2015 8:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Insurgent," the second installment in Veronica Roth's "Divergent" trilogy, is a true middle book, and the adaptation is no exception. There's less background exposition and more plot twists and character development -- not to mention a cliffhanger ending. The movie follows Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) as they try to escape the clenches of Erudite leader Jeanine Matthews (Kate Winslet) and her Dauntless henchmen. On the run, Tris and Four realize they must form alliances -- with the neutral Amity, the Dauntless unwilling to follow Jeanine, and the Factionless led by the mysterious Evelyn (Naomi Watts), someone from Four's past. (In case you can't remember anything from the first movie, here are seven things to know before you see "Insurgent.")

"Insurgent" is rated PG-13 "for intense violence and action throughout, some sensuality, thematic elements and brief language." If you have an elementary-school-aged kid who read the books early, »

Tracers: Taylor Lautner Runs, Bikes, and Jumps

16 March 2015 10:25 PM, PDT | | See recent CultureCatch news »

I'm one of those "glass half-full "critics when it comes to Taylor Lautner. Film after film I hope he'll pull a Sally Field, who went from The Flying Nun and Gidget to Sybil and Norma Rae. Would Abduction or Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 reveal the young man's inner Laurence Olivier? No, sadly. The lumbering hunk remains just a lumbering hunk in those two. Prize-winning pecs and abs plus a cute smile were what the glamor boy's fans had to settle for.

"Well, maybe Tracers will be his Wuthering Heights," I was murmuring as I scooted onto the subway last night, heading for a midtown screening room. I should have known better. I should have checked out the director's CV before hoping for the best.

It looks like Frozen has opened up Josh Gad to the wide world of Disney comedy sidekicks, with the actor known the world over as the voice of Olaf signing on to play LeFou, the buffonish yes-man to Luke Evan's preening villain Gaston, in the upcoming live action remake of Beauty and the Beast.

The latest in Disney's current trend of live action remakes of their classic cartoons, taking it's place amongst the likes of Malificent and Cinderella (released in the U.S. today and coming our way on March 27th) and the upcoming The Jungle Book and recently announced Dumbo, there is no release date set for Beauty and the Beast, »

Josh Gad To Play Gaston’s Sidekick In Beauty And The Beast

13 March 2015 11:52 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Disney’s live-action Beauty And The Beast remake has found its comedy relief in the shape of Frozen‘s Josh Gad. The announcement now places the actor as the only American set to appear alongside the trio of Brits locked in for starring roles. Harry Potter alum Emma Watson nabbed the part of Belle in January; Dracula Untold‘s Luke Evans is reportedly in line to play the villainous Gaston; and Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens is engaged to play the titular Beast.

Taking charge of the reboot is director Bill Condon (Gods and Monsters, Twilight: Breaking Dawn), who will work from a script by Stephen Chbosky (The Perks of Being a Wallflower).

Per THR, who broke the news, Disney is aiming to forgo a strict remake of the source material and instead sculpt a revamped version more in line with the 1991 animated caper. Proof of this originates in the »

Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan want pay increase for Fifty Shades sequels

11 March 2015 11:24 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After conquering the world this year with a whopping $550 million worldwide to date, it is no surprise that Universal Pictures and Focus Features are fast-tracking plans to bring the Fifty Shades of Grey sequels to the screen. But while fans can’t wait to see the return of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, the films stars aren’t quite locked in just yet.

Unsurprisingly after the success of the first film, stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are reportedly seeking a bumper pay increase to star in the sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. Both were reportedly paid $250,000 each for the first film, but The Hollywood Reporter suggests they are looking to boost their contacts with seven-figure fees.

The pair are contracted to appear in both sequels regardless, but the financial success of the first film, and the undoubted box-office bonanza still in store, has led to the duo looking for better deals, »

'American Ultra' Stars Stewart and Eisenberg Reportedly Join Allen's Next Film Project

9 March 2015 12:28 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

American Ultra stars Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg will be reunited later this year in another project: Woody Allen's next as yet untitled feature. Bruce Willis is the third cast member whose name has been publicly announced. The source for this information is an "exclusive" report via's Mike Fleming Jr. So far, as Fleming explains in his brief piece, Woody Allen and "his people" haven't confirmed the casting. In other words, things could change in the not-too-distant future. See also: Kristen Stewart Joins Kelly Reichardt Movie Project, also featuring Laura Dern and Michelle Williams. Unsurprisingly, no plot details about the upcoming Woody Allen project have been forthcoming. In fact, one wonders if Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, and Bruce Willis – in case they have indeed joined the fold – know what the movie is going to be about. Allen's latest collaborators – Letty Aronson, Stephen Tenenbaum and Edward Walson – will be producing the film. »
