19 June 2017 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Veteran publicity executive Julie Fontaine has left Lionsgate and will be heading up film publicity for Netflix starting at the end of the month, Variety has learned.

She will report to chief communications officer Jonathan Friedland. A Netflix spokesperson confirmed the hire, saying, “She’s a superstar. We are very excited.”

Fontaine joined Lionsgate in March, 2011, as executive VP of theatrical publicity after co-head of film marketing Sarah Greenberg had departed for a job with the Weinstein Company. Fontaine, who reported to marketing topper Tim Palen, had been VP of domestic publicity at Disney Studios and had held PR positions at Miramax and Cowboy Pictures.

Okay, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner's Twilight Reunion Is Pretty Freakin' Adorable

9 June 2017 11:50 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Miss seeing Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner play a vampire and werewolf in the Twilight series? Well, the actors probably aren't reprising their supernatural roles anytime soon, but they did have an adorable reunion in La on Thursday. The former costars and real-life friends shared a sweet embrace at a Moschino afterparty. While Kristen sported her infamous buzzed haircut, Taylor showed off some sexy scruff as he wrapped his arm around her shoulder. This isn't the first time the two have reunited since wrapping Breaking Dawn – Part 2. In 2015, Kristen brought along Taylor as her date to her big premiere for American Ultra. Bella and Jacob may not have been true love, but we're happy to see Kristen and Taylor's friendship is still going strong. »

Twilight: Robert Pattinson leaves door open to another film

20 April 2017 10:40 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Apr 21, 2017

Robert Pattinson has interest in returning to Twilight, but notes "it's always difficult when there's no source material"...

Even though it’s been a good few years now since the Twilight movie franchise drew to a close (with Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2), chatter about another screen adventure continues to bubble up. Articles such as this one don’t help, of course.

But then Robert Pattinson, who played Edward Cullen across the five films in the series, has been asked about potentially reprising the role in a future film. And it seems that he may well be up for it.

Chatting to Yahoo, he queried “so, I’ll get my own spin-off?”, before adding “I’m always kind of curious. Anything where there’s a mass audience - or seemingly an audience for it - I always like the idea of subverting people’s expectations. There could be »

Beauty and the Beast director in talks for Bride of Frankenstein

15 April 2017 3:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Fresh from the box office success of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, it looks like director Bill Condon may have found his next project, with Deadline reporting that the filmmaker is in talks with Universal to helm their planned Bride of Frankenstein remake.

Condon does have previous history with Bride of Frankenstein, having including a homage to the classic Monster movie in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, as well as writing and directing Gods and Monsters, which revolved around Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein director James Whale and saw him receiving the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Bride of Frankenstein will be part of Universal’s shared Classic Monsters universe, which launches this summer with The Mummy. Previous rumours have suggested that Universal wants Angelina Jolie for the lead role as The Monster’s Bride, played by Elsa Lanchester in the original movie. »

7 Filmmaking Tips from Bill Condon

22 March 2017 10:03 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

How to make movies that win awards and break box office records.

Forget Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh. Bill Condon’s career really began with Gods and Monsters, for which he won the adapted screenplay Oscar. He would go on to receive another writing nomination, for Chicago, and over the past 15 years he’s directed award-worthy performances, some of them surprises, he’s drawn non-Twilight fans into that franchise, and he just released what’s looking to be the most successful musical of all time.

Obviously, after the massive opening weekend Condon had with Beauty and the Beast, he’s a filmmaker worth looking up to. He hasn’t always delivered hits or Academy favorites, but the director of such movies as Dreamgirls, Mr. Holmes, Kinsey, The Fifth Estate, and both parts of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn is a distinct talent in Hollywood, one who regularly makes a kind of pop prestige picture, or »

Movie Review – Beauty and the Beast (2017)

19 March 2017 1:16 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Beauty and the Beast, 2017.

Directed by Bill Condon.

Starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Ewan McGregorLuke Evans, Josh Gad, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci, Kevin Kline, Sonoya Mizuno, Hattie Morahan, and Audra McDonald.

Synopsis:

An adaptation of the Disney fairy tale about a monstrous-looking prince and a young woman who fall in love.

The Disney devoted can stop their hand-wringing and let out a sigh of relief; the big-budget, live-action adaptation of the beloved, Best Picture-nominated 1991 classic Beauty and the Beast is, for the most part, a rousing success, and while imperfect, re-affirms how seriously the House of Mouse is taking what could so easily have been a craven money-making exercise.

You know the story so it hardly bears much repeating; an arrogant young prince (Dan Stevens) is cursed for his callousness, transformed into a grizzly beast, and the only means to break the curse is to »

Movie Review – Beauty and the Beast (2017)

Beauty and the Beast, 2017.

Directed by Bill Condon.

Starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Ewan McGregorLuke Evans, Josh Gad, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson, Stanley Tucci, Kevin Kline, Sonoya Mizuno, Hattie Morahan, and Audra McDonald.

Synopsis:

An adaptation of the Disney fairy tale about a monstrous-looking prince and a young woman who fall in love.

Disney’s live-action remake of 1991 animated classic Beauty and the Beast literally wastes not a second before nostalgically pulling at those childhood heartstrings, as it booms the beloved theme immediately as the camera begins drawing us closer to the iconic blizzardy located castle. Call it reassurance for those worried that this new take (on what is arguably the studio’s greatest accomplishment in their decades-spanning, unparalleled history) would stray away from the revered familiar story beats and musical numbers.

Timeless Appeal: Interview with the star of Beauty and the Beast and The Circle, Emma Watson

Timeless Appeal: Interview with the star of Beauty and the Beast and The Circle, Emma WatsonTimeless Appeal: Interview with the star of Beauty and the Beast and The Circle, Emma WatsonIngrid Randoja - Cineplex Magazine3/16/2017 3:22:00 Pm

Emma Watson’s breakout moment is here.

Sure, Watson is already known for making one of the most publicized debuts in modern movies when, at age 11, she starred as the precocious Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. But, even while she grew up in front of our eyes in the seven ensuing Potter movies, her career was limited to just that role.

Watson turns 27 in April, and it’s a bit shocking to think of her closing in on 30 when in our mind’s eye she’s still running around Hogwarts with Harry and Ron.

That all changes with the release of two films in the next two months, »

Beauty And The Beast Review

15 March 2017 9:41 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Another year, another live action remake of a classic Disney animation, but this feels like the big one. The one they’ve been building towards since Tim Burton brought his vision of Alice in Wonderland to the big screen. 1991’s Beauty and the Beast is beloved the world over, has had a countless number of re-releases on both the big screen and home media since it’s release, and those who grew up with it  are the perfect age now to bring their own families to see this new, updated version. So, how does it fare? Well, thankfully Disney and director Bill Condon (Dreamgirls, Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Parts 1 & 2) found the perfect approach to this remake: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. While I don’t think I need to lay out the plot of Beauty and the Beast for you, it’s a tale as old »
