Angela Lansbury Sings Beauty and the Beast Live

Sadly we don’t get to see the  new live-action take on Beauty and the Beast until March 17, 2017. But it just so happens that this year marks the 25th anniversary of the animated adaptation of the classic tale, and in honor of that milestone, Disney just released a special edition Blu-ray with a special sneak peek of the new version starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens as the title couple. You can watch that featurette right here, but today we have a special treat calling back to the original animated classic.

A special 25th anniversary screening of Beauty and the Beast was just held at New York City’s Lincoln Center, and following the film, Angela Lansbury (who voiced Mrs. Potts) sang her rendition of the film’s beautiful theme song with composer Alan Menken accompanying her on the piano. At 90 years old, Lansbury proves that she still has impeccable singing chops, and she even added a lovely little tag at the end of the song as well.

A Hologram for the King animated sequence

Despite the fact that it’s directed by Tom Tykwer, based on a book by Dave Eggers, and stars Tom Hanks, A Hologram for the King came and went earlier this year without making so much as a ripple. It made a paltry $4 million in U.S. theaters and scored a so-so 71% on Rotten Tomatoes — neither good nor bad enough to make people wonder. Heck, our review of it was titled There’s a Tom Hanks Movie in Theaters and You Didn’t Even Know About It.

But now that it’s made its way to home video, you’ll have another chance to check it out. And that seems like as good an excuse as any to check out a longer version of the film’s first and best sequence, a partially animated fantasy from Austrian animation studio NÖT. It’s weird and colorful and feels kind of desperate, in a way that really suits the movie. Watch the A Hologram for the King opening sequence, which features a cartoon Tom Hanks and a choreographed dance sequence, below.  Read More »

Game of Thrones Season 6 VFX Reel

I’m a sucker for visual effects breakdown reels in general, but I’m really a sucker for Game of Thrones visual effects breakdown reels because they showcase just how much of HBO’s fantasy drama is quietly enhanced by intelligent, often invisible special effects. Sure, everyone knows those dragons are CGI, but your eyes don’t always catch the numerous set extensions. You probably don’t even realize that the sky has been replaced and the lightning digitally modified in many scenes.

And as one VFX reel reveals, a great deal of the violence is brought to life through some surprisingly effective trickery, combining digital and practical elements in a seamless fashion.

X-Men Apocalypse Campus Tour Video

Back before X-Men: Apocalypse hit theaters, 20th Century Fox delivered a retro commercial for Xavier’s School for the Gifted, looking like it was ripped straight off a VHS tape. The video featured Jubilee, and she probably got just as much screen time there as she did in the final movie despite being all over the marketing materials leading up to the movie. Now Xavier’s School for the Gifted gets one more retro push with another viral video arriving just in time to promote the arrival of X-Men: Apocalypse on home video.

luke cage clip

Luke Cage doesn’t premiere on Netflix until the end of the month, but Marvel isn’t being shy with the new clips. The first few teases showed off Mike Colter as Power Man himself, with the unbreakable skinned superhero absorbing punishment, dishing out pain, and finding himself in need of some new clothes. The newest clip places the focus on one of the chief villains he’ll be battling during the show’s first season: Cornell “Cottonmouth” Stokes, played by House of Cards and The Hunger Games series star Mahershala Ali.

x-men apocalypse deleted scene

In a summer filled with high profile duds, X-Men: Apocalypse reigns supreme. At least Independence Day: Resurgence was audacious and insane and totally bonkers. At least Suicide Squad was bad in ways that generate great conversations. Bryan Singer’s fourth X-Men movie, and the eighth film in the franchise overall, is the kind of movie that takes two and a half hours of your time and exits your brain while you’re still watching it. It’s the kind of bad movie that doesn’t even have the decency to leave an impact.

Although the Blu-ray and DVD for X-Men: Apocalypse doesn’t arrive until next month, a deleted scene from the film has arrived online and it’s…well, it’s interesting. I wouldn’t call it a good scene, but it’s the kind of weirdness that the final cut desperately needs.
