Beauty and the Beast is getting closer and closer with the release just over a couple months away. A bunch of TV spots are hitting the small screen to remind everyone that it’s coming out, but with all the record-breaking trailer views the live-action remake of Disney’s animated classic has racked up, I think it’s safe to say everyone knows about it.
Disney loves to have as big of a crowd as possible though, so it should come as no surprise that they debuted a new Beauty and the Beast TV spot during the Golden Globes tonight. There’s a good amount of new footage for those looking to see every bit of Belle (Emma Watson) and The Beast (Dan Stevens, covered in visual effects) of this new spin on the classic tale, and we also have a new poster to check out as well.

You’ve got to hand it to Noah Baumbach – it takes a lot a guile to assemble a cast of movie stars for a small indie drama and then start filming without telling anyone, which is the case for his new movie, a seemingly untitled project that is undergoing production in New York City right now. This is par for the course for Baumbach, who has spent the past few years working quickly and quietly, seemingly only pausing to attend the film festivals where his work screens.
Also par for the course for Baumbach is the eclectic cast, which includes Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Dustin Hoffman, and Emma Thompson.

Bradley Cooper has already been nominated for an Oscar four times, and The Weinstein Company is probably hoping that he can get another nomination as a struggling chef desperately trying to make a comeback in a big way.
Burnt sees Cooper play Adam Jones, a former star chef who landed two coveted Michelin stars, and as one of the characters in the new Burnt trailer says, you have to be like Luke Skywalker in order to get just one of them. But what if he’s more like the Darth Vader of chefs? Either way, Jones now wants his third Michelin star, and he’s pulling out all the stops to make it happen. Read More »

Entire teams of people working in legal and clearance departments exist to prevent just the sort of stuff that happened to Emma Thompson‘s film Effie Gray. Based on a true story, Thompson scripted and co-starred in the film, only to see it bogged down in two separate accusations of plagiarism by two different playwrights. Judges ruled in favor of the film in both cases. Now it is closing in on release, so we can examine the first Effie Gray trailer.
The film follows a particularly odd Victorian love triangle in which Victorian art critic John Ruskin (Greg Wise) married his childhood friend Euphemia “Effie” Gray (Dakota Fanning), only to leave the marriage unconsummated. Eventually, Effie embarked upon a more fulfilling affair with painter John Everett Millais (Tom Sturridge). Read More »

Pierce Brosnan hasn’t played James Bond in years, but his days of daring aren’t totally behind him. In the new The Love Punch trailer, he plans to steal a $10 million diamond after a shady French financier makes off with his pension fund.
The difference is that this Pierce Brosnan is not a badass spy, but an ordinary businessman with three equally ill-equipped co-conspirators: his snarky ex-wife Kate (Emma Thompson) and two bumbling neighbors (Timothy Spall and Celia Imrie). Naturally, sparks fly and hilarity ensues. Watch the Love Punch trailer after the jump.
