Beauty and the Beast Featurette

Fans of Disney’s beloved animated classics from decades past consistently ask why the studio is bothering updating movies that everyone already loves. In the case of Beauty and the Beast, director Bill Condon recognizes that the original iteration of Beauty and the Beast was perfect, raising the question of why Disney is bothering to remake it at all. A new Beauty and the Beast featurette attempts to explain that by going behind the scenes and showing fans how they’re making this story feel familiar and new at the same time.

The Fate of the Furious Helen Mirren and Vin Diesel

Beauty and the Beast Gaston clip

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.  Read More »

Beauty and the Beast

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.

Now we get another little glimpse at the movie in the form of a new photo that finally gives us a shot of Luke Evans as Gaston attempting to catch the eye of Emma Watson as Belle. Read More »

The Girl on the Train spoiler review

Paula HawkinsThe Girl on the Train is an incredibly entertaining and bleak page-turner. The deeply troubled characters are what make the novel exciting. The more pages turned, the more the characters reveal themselves, and usually in some pretty troubling, unnerving, or darkly enjoyable ways. Hawkins’ novel is arguably a better drama than it is a thriller, and the same could be said of Tate Taylor‘s adaptation. The Help director’s film is a sometimes-above-average thriller that thrives mostly on its performances.
