Daisy Ridley may have been new to movie stardom circa Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but by now she’s an old pro at dodging questions. Watch as shrugs that she doesn’t think Rey’s parentage is really “so important,” or coolly deflects further inquiries with “curiosity is a wonderful thing.” Unfortunately for her, though, fans and journalists aren’t the only ones she has to watch out for.
For the past several weeks, Josh Gad — Ridley’s co-star in the Murder on the Orient Express remake — has been trying his damnedest to get some Star Wars: The Last Jedi answers from her, even enlisting the help of Judi Dench. So far, Ridley’s resisted. But can she continue to stand firm against all of Gad’s famous friends? Find out below. Read More »

It seems like just about everyone loves Disney’s classic Beauty and the Beast, which means just about everyone’s got their own favorite musical number from it. Some smile at “Belle” or swoon at “Beauty and the Beast”; others are taken in by the grandeur of “Be Our Guest” or the sweetness of “Something There.” And then there are those, like me, who adore “Gaston” most of all? What can I say? He’s perfect; a pure paragon.
But that means I’ve been disappointed as trailer after trailer for the live-action remake basically ignored this big dumb brute and his big dumb musical number, in favor of showing off romantic moments between Belle and Beast or whatever. Thankfully, Gaston himself is here to save the day. During a recent appearance to promote the upcoming film, star Luke Evans unveiled the first clip of himself and Josh Gad (as LeFou) performing “Gaston.” Watch the Beauty and the Beast Gaston clip below.

After the eighth episode of the Skywalker saga was announced as Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Frozen star Josh Gad began posting videos on Facebook jokingly grilling Daisy Ridley, his co-star in the currently filming Kenneth Branagh remake of Murder on the Orient Express, about who is the titular Last Jedi. These videos have gotten such a great response that Gad apparently isn’t stopping.
For the third week, Gad has reeled in another Orient Express co-star, Dame Judi Dench to help pester Ridley with questions about The Last Jedi. And you might be surprised to learn that the James Bond star was actually able to get an answer out of Ridley. Watch that video now, embedded after the jump.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the title of the eighth chapter of the Star Wars saga, but everyone is wondering: who is the last Jedi? Is it Luke Skywalker (as evidenced by the mention in the opening crawl of Force Awakens)? Is it Rey? Is it Kylo Ren? Is it someone else? Or is Jedi plural and does the title refer to multiple people? Frozen star Josh Gad is currently filming Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express with Daisy Ridley and decided to grill the Star Wars actress about the new title. You can watch the Daisy Ridley Last Jedi video after the jump, alongside news that Ridley is joining a Bad Robot-produced spy drama.

Following the arrival of a new TV spot for Disney’s live-action adaptation of their own animated classic Beauty and the Beast, complete with Emma Watson belting out one of the signature tunes, some new photos from the movie have surfaced online.
The new Beauty and the Beast photos provide us with some of the best stills yet of the visual effects used to bring The Beast (Dan Stevens) to life. In addition, we get two new shots of Luke Evans as Gaston, along with Frozen star Josh Gad as his bumbling lackey LeFou. Read More »
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.

When Willem Dafoe signs up for a movie, that film is pretty much guaranteed to have at least one good performance. We expect nothing less of Dafoe, an actor I can’t think of giving an underwhelming performance in recent memory. Not only is he consistent, he’s also great more often than not, so it’s satisfying to learn he’s joined Kenneth Branagh‘s Murder on the Orient Express remake.
Below, learn more about the Murder on the Orient Express cast.
