17 hours ago | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Emma Watson, best known as Harry Potter’s bookish best friend Hermione Granger, announced that she will be Disney’s next princess – Belle! The Brown University graduate will be bringing her enviable combination of brains and beauty to Bill Condon’s live-action version of Beauty and the Beast.

Unfortunately, there hasn’t been an announcement about who will play the Beast to Emma’s “Beauty.”

Who will be the Beast? We went through all the working heartthrobs of Hollywood, and picked our top candidates for the role.

Chris Pine

Can he sing? Yes. Chris starred in the adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical Into the Woods. Age: 34 (10 years older than Emma) Known For: Star Trek, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit We asked you on Facebook and Twitter who you’d like to be Disney’s next prince. Chris Pine was the popular choice. Two other Chrises – Hemsworth and Evans – were very close behind in the votes. »

Emma Watson is Still Going to Play Belle in a Live-Action Beauty and the Beast

26 January 2015 10:31 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s a casting decision as old as time. Emma Watson signed on to play Belle in a live-action “Beauty and the Beast” movie back in 2011. That project was set up at Warner Bros. with Guillermo del Toro attached to direct. Now she’s officially signed on to play Belle in a different live-action “Beauty and the Beast” movie, according to The Wrap. This one is from Disney, part of their plan to remake every one of their animated features with actors in the flesh (and sometimes enhanced by CGI) and being helmed by Bill Condon (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — parts 1 and 2, which concludes a kind of update on the “Beauty and the Beast” narrative). Reportedly the production got del Toro’s blessing to snag his leading lady since the Warner Bros. movie is all but dead now. Watson will now get to reunite, to an extent, with The Perks of Being a Wallflower writer-director Stephen Chbosky »

Emma Watson is Disney's next princess

26 January 2015 10:24 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Today, a perfect thing happened in Hollywood.

Emma Watson, best known as Harry Potter’s bookish best friend Hermione Granger, announced on her Facebook page that she will be Disney’s next princess.

Post by Emma Watson.

The Brown University graduate will be bringing her enviable combination of brains and beauty to Bill Condon’s live-action version of Beauty and the Beast as -- arguably the best Disney princess of the 90s -- Belle. No word on who will play the Beast to her “Beauty.”

Watson has spent the last year as a Un Women Goodwill Ambassador promoting education for girls and gender equality under the campaign HeForShe.

Emma Watson Cast as Belle in Disney’s Live Action Beauty and the Beast

26 January 2015 9:13 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

It would seem that Disney is now in the business of turning every one of their animated classics into live action films. We’ve already seen spots for “Cinderella” and there’s been development news about “The Jungle Book,” but there’s another live action film on the way and it’s a tale as old as time. That’s right; “Beauty and the Beast” is getting the live action treatment and Emma Watson has been tapped to star. Disney made the casting announcement today, states The Hollywood Reporter. The studio also announced that Bill Condon, who directed both parts of “Twilight: Breaking Dawn,” is set to direct. Along with Disney’s big announcement, Watson also  [ Read More ]

Emma Watson Cast as Belle in Disney’s Live-Action ‘Beauty and the Beast’

26 January 2015 8:54 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Emma Watson will star Disney’s live-action version of “Beauty and the Beast” as the lead character Belle.

Disney made the announcement Monday, saying that production will begin later this year. No release date has been set.

The film will be directed by Bill Condon (“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn”), who was announced as director in June. David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Films are producing.

The “Harry Potter” actress also made the announcement on her Facebook page:

“I’m finally able to tell you… that I will be playing Belle in Disney’s new live-action Beauty and the Beast! It was such a big part of my growing up, it almost feels surreal that I’ll get to dance to ‘Be Our Guest’ and sing ‘Something There.’ My six year old self is on the ceiling – heart bursting.

Beauty And The Beast - Emma Watson Officially Cast as Belle

26 January 2015 8:54 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

This shouldn't come as a huge surprise, but Disney has just sent over a press release that confirms Emma Watson will be starring as Belle in the studio's live-action interpretation of Beauty and the Beast. This project has been in the works for years, with casting news going back to at least 2011. At one point, Guillermo del Toro was going to direct, but as you probably know, he's one of the busiest guys in Hollywood, so he had to bail and was replaced by director Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn).

Watson seems like she'd be a great Belle (as a Harry Potter alum, she's obviously no stranger to acting in huge productions like this), and with del Toro's fingerprints still on this project, I have no doubt that this is going to skew more toward the original fairy tale and have a much darker feel than the studio's 1991 animated classic. »

26 January 2015 8:52 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Harry Potter alum and international sweetheart Emma Watson has been cast as Belle in Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast feature. The movie will be directed by Bill Condon (The Fifth Estate, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Parts 1 and 2) and doesn't yet have a release date. We can expect this to be in the same vein as Disney's latest live-action fairy-tale interpretations like 2014's Maleficent and this year's Cinderella. Listen, we're not saying we predicted this, but we kind of predicted this. Read Emma Watson's announcement below! Post by Emma Watson. »

Disney Confirms Emma Watson's Casting in Live Action 'Beauty and the Beast'

26 January 2015 7:29 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

At one point, it was going to be Guillermo del Toro directing a live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast over at Warner Bros. with Emma Watson set to star as Belle. Well, at the same time Disney was developing a of their own and now that del Toro is no longer involved at WB, Disney is the only one left in the game and they've got Bill Condon (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, Dreamgirls) directing and Watson now confirmed for the lead role in their feature. It's an interesting turn of events considering Watson had been loosely attached to the WB version since 2011, but it seems she's the right actor for the part no matter where it's being made or who is directing as production on Disney's feature is expected to begin later this year.

‘Mockingjay’ Tops ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ To Become 2014’s Highest-Grossing Film

22 January 2015 10:37 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

It’s official: Katniss just kicked Guardians Of The Galaxy‘s butt. Lionsgate’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 hit $333.18M yesterday, seizing the title of highest-grossing film of 2014 away from the Marvel/Disney comic book film which has amassed $333.17M at the domestic box office. Further bolstering Mockingjay‘s title is that its bread wasn’t propped up by 3D or IMAX ticket pricing, the latter of which was the case with The Hunger Games: Catching Fire ($424.7M). (However, sources say that Mockingjay – Part 1 did play about 350 non-imax-brand large-format venues where it grossed $10M).

This is all deja vu. In January 2014, Katniss overtook another Marvel superhero title, Iron Man 3, as 2013’s highest-grossing film. In its seventh week, Hunger Games: Catching Fire clicked past Iron Man 3‘s $409M before finaling its cume at $424.7M. But the records don’t stop there: This is the first time in »

With her personal life in the press as much as her professional roles, Kristen Stewart opened up on Tuesday about how the tabloids have erroneously reported about her acting career.

Taken 3 movie review: give it back

9 January 2015 12:30 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

This is a movie as its own death wish. To call it cheap, lazy, and perfunctory grants it a dignity that implies there was another path it could have taken. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): not a fan of the franchise

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

I figure French fauxteur Olivier Megaton (Taken 2, Colombiana) jumped his own shark when he chose that nom de cinema, but if not, he’s definitely done it now with Taken 3. It wouldn’t be fair to call this a movie: it’s more a phony, forced assemblage of stilted dialogue, incoherent action sequences, inexplicably sociopathic behavior on the part of its supposedly sympathetic protagonist, and bad self-referential “jokes” about the many idiocies of the franchise it has now, we can hope, killed for good. This is a movie as its own death wish. »
