Lily James, Sam Riley and Burr Steers talk about the undead in Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

4 February 2016 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

This Friday, 19th Century women battle zombies in the film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Based on the popular parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, Jane Austen’s story of social class injustices, manners, and romances meets a whole new social class of characters, as actor Sam Riley (Maleficent), refers to them—the zombies.

We had the chance to talk to director Burr Steers, and stars Lily James (Cinderella) and Riley about the unique vision that the film offers, specifically an epic spin on the classical literature genre.

Lily James takes on the iconic character of Elizabeth Bennett, but gets to play her as a zombie slayer. The film catapults its female characters into a battle with the undead, making them the heroes of this bloody take on Jane Austen’s story.

Watch the interview below and see Pride and Prejudice and Zombies when it hits theatres on February 5th. »

On this day in pop culture history: Disney’s ‘Sleeping Beauty’ premiered

29 January 2016 8:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

57 years ago today, Disney’s Sleeping Beauty premiered at the Fox Wilshire Theater in Los Angeles. It was the last film based on a fairy tale that the House of Mouse made for over 30 years, until 1989’s The Little Mermaid, since Sleeping Beauty underperformed at the box office, leading to massive layoffs at Disney. The successful release of 101 Dalmatians in 1961 ended up saving Disney Animation. Though Sleeping Beauty wasn’t a hit at its debut, the film’s become a beloved Disney classic, with Aurora in her pink dress (you win, Flora) prominent among the lineup of Disney princesses, and with Maleficent now an iconic animated villain. Maleficent got her own movie starring Angelina Jolie in 2014. Other notable January 29 happenings in pop culture history: • 1845: Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven was first published in the New York Evening Mirror. • 1942: BBC Radio first aired “Desert Island Discs.” Still on the air today, »

Scarlett Johansson’s Ghost In The Shell Movie Hops From Disney To Paramount, 2017 Release Date Still Intact

26 January 2016 7:56 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite reports to the contrary, Rupert Sanders’ live-action Ghost in the Shell movie remains on course for its March 2017 bow, but rather than Disney helping to shepherd the long-awaited manga adaptation to the big screen, Variety writes that Paramount has now picked up the project and will co-finance.

Indeed, Sanders’ sci-fi picture isn’t the only feature to be affected by the new distribution deal, with fellow adaptation The Girl on the Train also set to be released through Paramount, which also keeps hold of its original release date of October 7, 2016.

Thrusting Under the Skin star Scarlett Johansson into the lead role as Motoko Kusanag – squad leader of the elite Public Security Section 9 – Ghost in the Shell brings the fictional metropolis of Niihama to life in all of its neon-drenched glory. Last we reported, Maleficent star Sam Riley had emerged as an early frontrunner to nab the coveted role of the film’s chief villain, »

Live action fairytale movies: UK release date calendar

When to expect all the upcoming live action fairytale movies, including Dumbo, Beauty And The Beast and two Jungle Books…

You’ve probably noticed the influx of live action fairytales gracing cinemas in recent years. This isn’t about to stop any time soon, since re-spinning a recognisable fantastical yarn with real people instead of animated ones always makes big money for the studio behind it.

This process has become so popular that there are currently more of these live action fairytales in production than Marvel Studios, DC Entertainment or Star Wars movies. That’s a lot of films. (A whopping 21 by our count.)

Although it wadsn’t the first movie of this kind, Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland – and its worldwide gross of over a billion dollars – can surely take the credit for kick-starting this trend. Here are all the in-development movies trying to repeat its success, »

The Amazing Spider-man Star Emma Stone Eyed For Titular Role In Cruella

7 January 2016 12:52 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Back in 2014, Maleficent, which starred Academy Award-winner Angelina Jolie (Kung Fu Panda 3) in the lead, cooked up over $758 million at the worldwide box office and now Walt Disney Pictures are gearing up to tackle another villainess origin story. Last night, The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Disney is currently in early talks with Academy Award-nominee Emma Stone to play the iconic Disney villainess Cruella de Vil in Cruella. The film, which will re-imagine the origin of the classic 101 Dalmations character, doesn't have a director yet, but the project is said to be a priority for the studio as they hope to shoot the film sometime this year. Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr. Banks) is penning the script with Andrew Gunn is producing. If Stone signs on, she would be the fourth actress to portray Cruella de Vil in live-action. De Vil was first brought to life by six-time Academy »

Emma Stone May Play Cruella De Vil in Disney Live-Action Origin Story

7 January 2016 6:18 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Dahhhling, would you even believe Emma Stone as someone cruel enough to steal puppies for fur coats?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Emma Stone is in early negotiations to play the "101 Dalmations" villainess in a live-action origin story called "Cruella." They say Kelly Marcel is now writing the script (back in 2013, "Cinderella" writer Aline Brosh McKenna was the one working on "Cruella"). And even though there is no director at this point, THR said the project is a priority for Disney which hopes to shoot the film later this year.

Yes, Hollywood has completely run out of original ideas. Let's just get that out of the way. Now, what do you think of Emma Stone as the latest potential Cruella?

The animated Cruella, from the 1961 movie, is the most iconic, but Glenn Close donned the hair and coat in the 1996 live action adaptation, and Victoria Smurfit was just Cruella for »

Emma Stone to Play Cruella de Vil for Walt Disney Pictures

7 January 2016 5:49 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, actress Emma Stone is in early negotiations to star as "101 Dalmatians" villainess Cruella de Vil in a live-action film for Disney. The film will center on the villain's point of view which will be similar to Disney's approach to "Maleficent", which starred Oscar-winning actress Angelina Jolie.

Screenwriter Kelly Marcel is writing the current script which will be an origin story of the "101 Dalmatians" villain. The film is being produced by Andrew Gunn with executives Kristin Burr and Jessica Virtue overseeing for the studio.

De Vil was the iconic Disney villain in the 1961 animated feature, "101 Dalmatians." Actress Glenn Close portrayed Cruella de Vil in the 1996 live-action version which was produced by director John Hughes. »

Watch Out Dalmatians: Emma Stone Frontrunner For Live-Action Cruella De Vil Movie

7 January 2016 2:49 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Joel Ryan/AP

Did you like Maleficent? Well, Disney doesn’t care either way, and they’re currently pushing forward with plans for similar villainess-origin stories. Y’know, considering the $760 million that the Angelina Jolie Sleeping Beauty prequel made worldwide. This time the focus falls squarely on 101 Dalmations’ fur-crazy old diva, Cruella de Vil.

Emma Stone is currently being touted as the frontrunner for the role, which makes it obvious that Cruella will be far from the bitter spinster we know her to be in the animated classic. Here’s hoping we discover whether she changed her name to something that obviously evil, or whether the deck was truly stacked against her since birth.

THR are reporting that at present there is no director attached, although the plan is to begin shooting later this year, so expect that to change very shortly. Saving Mr Banks’ writer Kelly Marcel is penning the script. »
