Black Widow May Introduce Us To Natasha’s Successor

Rumors about the upcoming Black Widow movie are emerging thick and fast this week, with the latest suggesting Florence Pugh could play Yelena Belova. Among the many leaks revealed by UK newspaper The Independent, one of the most intriguing is the addition of Belova as a potential foil for ScarJo’s Natasha Romanoff.

For those unfamiliar with the character, after receiving the same training as Romanoff, Belova also used the name Black Widow for her spy activities. She often disagreed with Romanoff though over how they should use their abilities, as well as appearing on different sides of the battle between good and evil in the Marvel Comics Universe. As Black Widow will most likely include scenes focusing on Romanoff’s early life, we may see her facing off against Belova in the Red Room academy.

Beauty And The Beast: 10 Changes To LeFou From The Animated Movie To The Live-Action

Disney's animated adaptation of Beauty and the Beast hit the big screen in 1991. That year, it won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture (Musical or Comedy) and was the first animated film ever to do so. With a budget of $25 million, Beauty and the Beast grossed $425 million at the box office, and the film was a major success.

In 2017, Disney remade the classic tale with a fresh live-action version starring Emma Watson as Belle. The live-action film saw a variety of changes from the original. One of the major ways that the 2017 film deviated from the 1991 version, was the character of LeFou.

Brawny, arrogant, insufferable Gaston's bumbling, naive sidekick was voiced by Jesse Corti in the 1991 movie. In the live-action version, Disney cast Josh Gad for the role. Disney made several changes to LeFou when they remade Beauty and the Beast - many for the better. Let's take

‘Aladdin’ to Soar Above Box Office Competition Over Memorial Day Weekend

‘Aladdin’ to Soar Above Box Office Competition Over Memorial Day Weekend
When Disney first released “Aladdin” in 1992, Bill Clinton was just settling in to the Oval Office, “Game of Thrones” wasn’t much more than a book idea percolating in the mind of author George R.R. Martin, and Johnny Carson was wrapping up his stint as “Tonight Show” host.

In some ways, 2019 feels like a whole new world. But Disney is hoping that even 27 years later, the prospect of seeing flashy musical numbers set to timeless tunes like “One Jump Ahead” and “Friend Like Me” will entice moviegoers young and old into theaters for an updated take on “Aladdin,” the story of a charming Arabian street rat who stumbles upon a genie’s magical lamp.

“There’s a lot of goodwill toward these characters,” said Jeff Bock, a media analyst at Exhibitor Relations. “I think it will work for families over Memorial Day weekend.”

Florence Pugh, James Norton Talk ‘Little Women’ On-Screen Romances With Timothée Chalamet & Emma Watson
Florence Pugh and James Norton gushed over their “Little Women” co-stars Timothée Chalamet and Emma Watson while at the Cannes Film Festival.

The actors spoke to Variety‘s Marc Malkin on the red carpet at the Chopard Trophy Awards, where Pugh was honored. The 23-year-old actress was chosen for the award by a jury consisting of former Chopard Trophy recipients such as Marion Cotillard, Gael García Bernal and Lea Seydoux, Cannes’ director Thierry Fremaux, Variety’s Steven Gaydos, and Chopard’s Caroline Scheufele.

Pugh and Chalamet’s characters Amy March and Laurie wed in Louisa May Alcott’s classic — to little fanfare. “We didn’t have a wedding,” Pugh bemoaned. “That’s still probably yet to come. We’ll have to ask his permission before that happens.”

Although Pugh didn’t get a wedding, the actress did get to wear matching outfits with her co-star, which she said “was the most important thing.

‘Lady and the Tramp’ Will Reinvent Problematic Siamese Cat Song, Feature New Music From Janelle Monae (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Grammy winner Janelle Monae will contribute new music to the Disney Plus streaming title “Lady and the Tramp,” in addition to her voice role in the live-action reboot.

Monae will perform two original songs for the film, led by Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux. Monae’s artist collective Wondaland is also “reinventing” a track from the original 1955 animated movie, individuals close to the project said.

That would be “The Siamese Cat Song,” originally recorded by Peggy Lee for the feline duo Si and Am in the animated version. Those characters and their famous refrain — “We are Siamese if you please / We are Siamese if you don’t please” — have long been considered a cringe-worthy depiction of Asian culture.

Wondaland contributors Nate “Rocket” Wonder and Roman GianArthur are working on a different take for the pair, who in the new film are not Siamese cats, the insiders added. Walt Disney Studios confirmed Monae’s musical involvement,

Box Office: ‘Aladdin’ Eyes $80 Million Opening Over Memorial Day Weekend

  • Variety
Disney’s “Aladdin” is expected to soar at the domestic box office when it debuts over Memorial Day weekend.

The studio’s latest live-action remake should earn $80 million when it opens May 24, according to early tracking. Box office watchers believe ticket sales could near $100 million through Monday, when kids are out of school for the holiday. That number could fluctuate in the three weeks leading up to the film’s arrival as Disney finalizes its marketing rollout. We can only assume those efforts include taking extra steps to assure audiences that Will Smith’s disturbingly blue Genie, which caused hysteria on Twitter after the first trailer dropped, won’t be so jarring on the big screen.

If estimates hold, that launch would be closer to recent Disney re-imaginings like Jon Favreau’s “Jungle Book” ($103 million) and “Beauty and the Beast” with Emma Watson ($174 million). “Jungle Book” raked in an impressive $966 million globally,

The studio's live-action remake of Aladdin is on course for an $80 million-plus debut over the long Memorial Day weekend, according to those with access to early tracking surveys.
