Beauty and the Beast Deleted Scene

Though the remake of Beauty and the Beast was pretty loyal to the animated adaptation that Disney brought to the big screen in 1991, it also added some details to the story, including a few original songs. You’ll be able to see even more of the movie when Beauty and the Beast arrives on home video, and director Bill Condon has revealed one of those extras today.

One of the new musical sequences in Beauty and the Beast is a flashback that reveals more of the Beast’s past as a young prince. It unfurls with the new song “Days in the Sun”, but the original version went a little differently before it had to be changed in the final cut. Watch the Beauty and the Beast deleted scene below.

Disney just keeps tearing through their vault of animated classics in order to bring younger audiences live-action remakes of the movies that their parents fell in love with when they were kids.

Jordan Peele

I’m not even thinking about my top 10 movies of 2017 list yet (mostly because it’s May), but if I was thinking about, I’m fairly certain Jordan Peele‘s Get Out would be occupying the number one spot. It’s the cinematic equivalent of a shotgun blast to the face – a bold and terrifying and deeply personal horror movie with a sharp comedic bite. It left my mind scrambled, even as I left the theater cheering.

Naturally, the film’s enormous success at the box office suddenly made Peele a hot commodity and he was offered a number of big projects, including Warner Bros.’ remake of Akira. He ended up turning it down and his reasoning should please many movie fans.

thom yorke suspiria

Dario Argento‘s Suspiria is one of the greatest horror movies of all time, a surreal voyage into a realm of unanswerable questions, horrible mysteries, and visuals that defy reality. It’s a colorful nightmare. It’s a 98-minute fever dream. And its score, by Goblin, will melt your skin off and explode your ear drums.

While the news of a Suspiria remake was greeted with jeers by horror fans, it’s undeniable that something interesting is going on here. Luca Guadagnino, the director of I Am Love and A Bigger Splash, is behind the camera and he’s an inspired choice to take on a movie about a ballet school operated by an evil cult of witches. And now, things just got a little more interesting: Radiohead’s Thom Yorke has signed on to score the film.
