Motherhood looks good on Mila Kunis! The "Jupiter Ascending" star has bounced right back since welcoming baby Wyatt late last year, and she put her hot post-baby bod on display at the Burberry "London in Los Angeles" event at the Griffith Observatory on Thursday night. Sporting slim blue pants and a white silk button-down, the actress flaunted her tiny waist as she posed for pictures at the star-studded soiree. She completed her ensemble with nude pumps, a side-swept 'do and a bronze smokey eye. Ashton Kutcher's other half recently joked about about her post-baby weight loss while chatting with Craig Ferguson. "Breastfeeding's a great workout! Let me tell you!" the brunette beauty explained. "I seem to eat a lot, so that kind of keeps me going through the day. [It's] not too bad. I do love to eat healthy." Kunis wasn't the only celeb to show their support for the famed fashion house last night. »

Every now and then it's rather difficult to figure out a headline for these episodes, especially when there isn't any one topic discussed for an extended period. I almost feel I should just set up a word randomizer rather than attempt to actually come up with something coherent. That said, on today's episode we talk a little about "Game of Thrones", a little about Michelle MacLaren departing the Wonder Woman directing gig, about new DVDs and Blu-rays, play some games, chat box office and all the standard shenanigans.

Looks like there will be more than one Belle in Disney and director Bill Condon’s new live-action rendering of Beauty And The Beast. We already have Emma Watson playing Belle, the beauty who wins the heart of Dan Stevens’ Beast and now Gugu Mbatha-Raw, who played a very different Belle in the eponymous drama last year, has been cast as Plumette.In the 1991 cartoon version, Plumette is the Beast’s maid, who, thanks to the dark curse that befalls everyone in his castle, is turned into a feather duster.This take on the tale boasts a great ensemble alongside Stevens, Watson and Mbatha-Raw, with Luke Evans as Gaston, Josh Gad as Le Fou, Emma Thompson as Mrs. Potts, Kevin Kline as Belle’s father Maurice, Ian McKellen as talking clock Cogsworth and Audra McDonald as Garderobe. Condon is working from a script by Stephen Chbosky. The cameras will be »
Just a few days after actor Ian McKellen joined Disney's live action Beauty and the Beast, the remake has added yet another cast member in Gugu Mbatha-Raw. The actress will portray Plumette, who was a feather duster in Disney's original animated classic Beauty and the Beast. The original 1991 movie took in over $375 million worldwide during its theatrical run, and was one of the few animated movies to receive an Oscar nomination for Best Picture.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw joins a cast that also includes Emma Watson (Belle), Luke Evans (Gaston), Dan Stevens (Beast), Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts), Josh Gad (Le Fou) and Kevin Kline (Maurice). Production is scheduled to begin later this year, with Disney already setting a March 17, 2017 release date. It isn't known how many major roles are left to be cast in this live action adaptation.
With the news of Ian McKellen joining the cast of Disney's live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast over the weekend, there are still a few key roles that need filling. Most notably is the candlestick Lumiere, but we will still have to wait a little on that one. This casting is not necessarily for a major part, but they put a very good actor in it anyway, and one who can sing. Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Beyond the Lights, Belle) has joined the cast as the feather duster Babette, who is the object of Lumiere's desires. Do you get itc Objectc I'm pretty clever. Though she does have a pretty good voice, most notably shown in Beyond the Lights, Babette doesn't do much singing, and when she does, it is in big, chorus numbers like "Be Our Guest". Regardless, she at least knows what she is doing when it comes to vocal performance. »

Luke Evans (Gaston), Josh Gadd (LeFou), Ian McKellen (Cogsworth), and Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts) also star. Bill Condon is directing from a script written by Evan Spiliotopoulos and rewritten by Stephen Chbosky. David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman of Mandeville Films are producing.
Production will begin this year for a March 17, 2017 release.
The studio’s 1991 animated feature “Beauty and the Beast” grossed more than $375 million worldwide, spawning a Broadway play and becoming the first animated film to score an Oscar nomination for best picture.

Welcome to my live-blog for the 2015 MTV Movie Awards, the year's only kudosfest likely to make me perpetually check for the correct spelling of "Ansel Elgort." Sunday's (April 12) show is being hosted by Amy Schumer and offers the intrigue of Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne going against Zoe Saldana for Best On-Screen Transformation, but then makes you wonder how if Eddie Redmayne was eligible for stuff, he isn't up for Best Male Performance. And who doesn't like an award show pitting "Guardians of the Galaxy" against "Boyhood" against "Selma" for Movie of the Year? Ladies and Gentlemen... The MTV Movie Awards! 7:57 p.m. Et. Every MTV event does little more than make me feel old. 7:59 p.m. Congratulations to Dylan O'Brien for winning a Best Hero award and for being the star of a TV show on MTV.

Best Actor Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne tops the list of prospects to play Newt Scamander in the Harry Potter spinoff trilogy Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them from author J.K. Rowling, who is making her screenwriting debut on the project. David Yates is directing the Warner Bros. pic slated to open November 18, 2016. Redmayne just finished work on The Danish Girl for director Tom Hooper and also played the villain in Warners’ Jupiter Ascending. Other actors are… »
Following reports that Harry Potter spinoff film Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them had its sights set on Doctor Who's Matt Smith to play the lead, comes word that the part may go to Eddie Redmayne. The Oscar winner is said to be the favorite for the part of magiczoologist and textbook scribe Newt Scamander. Variety reported the update, stating that their sources say Eddie Redmayne is the frontrunner for the part, however director David Yates has his eye on a few other actors as well. Eddie Redmayne earned himself an Oscar, a Golden Globe and a BAFTA award for his outstanding performance in The Theory of Everything. You may also recognize him from Jupiter Ascending or his role as Marius in Les Miserables. In addition to reporting the news that Redmayne is being sought for the part, Variety also notes that there are four other »
Back in February, we reported that the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them has started the casting process, and it seems the studio may have zeroed in on their lead actor. Variety reports that Eddie Redmayne, who recently won an Oscar for his performance in The Theory of Everything, is Warner Bros.' top choice for the lead role of Newt Scamander. The actor has yet to receive an official offer for the role, and it isn't known if he is interested in signing on or not.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which is one of the textbooks that Harry Potter and his Hogwarts classmates use, is set 70 years before Harry Potter first set foot in Hogwarts, following the adventures of the book's author, Newt Scamander, in New York City. Scamander is a "magiczoologist," someone who studies magical beasts. Aside from Scamander there are »
With an Oscar under his belt, Eddie Redmayne can pretty much do whatever he wants. Indeed, his upcoming projects veer wildly, from voicing the straight-to-video "Thomas & Friends: Sodor's Legend of the Lost Treasure" (fulfilling a childhood dream) to taking the gender-shifting lead in Tom Hooper's "The Danish Girl." One thing the actor hasn't really done much of is blockbuster movies (we'll just pretend "Jupiter Ascending" never happened), but he may be in line for a franchise. Variety reports that Redmayne is the frontrunner to lead Warner Bros. "Harry Potter" spinoff "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them." J.K. Rowling is penning the script herself for this story, set in New York 70 years before Harry even comes into the picture, and focusing on Newt Scamander, a “magiczoologist.” Read More: J.K.

Author J.K. Rowling is making her screenwriting debut on “Fantastic Beasts,” which is said to be “at least” a trilogy.
Redmayne recently wrapped Tom Hooper’s “The Danish Girl” and has yet to receive an official offer. Director David Yates is still also considering a few other actors for the part but the role, according to sources, is Redmayne’s to lose.
WB declined to comment on this story.
Set in New York roughly seven decades before Harry Potter’s saga starts, “Fantastic Beasts” is based on the Hogwarts textbook of the same name and follows the adventures of its author, »
