The first reactions have landed for indie darling Greta Gerwig's new take on Louisa May Alcott's beloved novel 'Little Women'.
Actor turned writer-director Greta Gerwig is following up her Oscar-nominated film Lady Bird with a new adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s seminal novel Little Women.
How anyone could keep a straight face on the set of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ is truly beyond us. Footage has emerged online of what Emma Watson had to act opposite in every scene she shared with former Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens.
Emma Watson might only have been paid a relatively minor salary of $3 million (£2.4 million) for playing Belle in Disney’s live-action remake of ‘Beauty and the Beast’, but the movie should make her a fortune. In a shrewd business move, the Harry Potter star is said to have taken a profit-sharing deal with Disney, meaning that if the movie is heading for ‘Maleficent’-sized grosses, she stands to make north of $15 million (£12 million), according to The Hollywood Reporter. ‘Maleficent’ hauled in $759 million (£607 million) worldwide in 2014, and so far ‘Beauty and the Beast’ has made a monstrous $462 million (£369 million) since its release on March 17.
‘Beauty And The Beast’ has already been declared another huge success for Disney, as it has smashed numerous box office records on its way to a worldwide haul of $410 million in less than a week. The publication reported, “There are currently no plans for a sequel and the studio – perhaps with ‘Alice Through The Looking Glass’ as a reminder – won’t try to force one. It’s understandable that Disney are apprehensive about a ‘Beauty And The Beast’ sequel, as 2016’s ‘Alice Through The Looking Glass’ grossed just $300 million in comparison to its predecessor’s haul of $1.025 billion back in 2010.
Graphic designer and poster artist Matt Ferguson has built a reputation of creating stunning alternative movie posters over the last few years so we’re delighted to be able two share two of his latest creations for Disney’s live action ‘Beauty and the Beast’, and they’re absolutely beautiful.
Emma Watson was at one time attached to take the Emma Stone role in Damien Chazelle’s Oscar-winning (well, not that Oscar) ‘La La Land’. “I knew I had horse training, I knew I had dancing, I knew I had three months of singing ahead of me, and I knew I had to be in London to really do that,” she said. Watson wasn’t the only star to miss out on the movie – Miles Teller was also in the frame for a time too, to star opposite Watson.
Emma Watson has revealed the really rather embarrassing manner that she almost ruined every scene in the early days of the Harry Potter movies. Yep, the nine-year-old Watson would memorise the scripts of co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint too, to make sure she was across the dialogue in its entirety and proving she was an incurable swot both on and off screen. While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel promoting new movie ‘Beauty and the Beast’, Kimmel showed footage of her auditions with Radcliffe and Grint, spotting that she appears to be mouthing her co-stars lines throughout.
Actress Emma Watson has responded to recent criticism where people slammed her claims of being a feminist after a revealing Vanity Fair photo shoot. Former ‘Harry Potter’ star Watson is well known for her strong support for gender equality and is a proud feminist. Not only that but she’s currently a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador and a big advocate of the HeforShe campaign which calls for men to support the need for equality.
It’s not long until audiences get to see the anticipated animation-to-live-action adaptation of Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’; with the critics releasing their verdicts on the film.
We got our first introduction to Emma Watson’s singing voice in a snippet from the live-action ‘Beauty and the Beast’ movie broadcast during the Golden Globes coverage back in January. But now Disney has revealed an extended clip, as the ‘Harry Potter’ star gets to grips with the opening number ‘Belle’. And those pipes do indeed appear to be rather enviable. Watson’s heroine proceeds through her French village home, as the locals remark upon her general oddness – well, she is singing to herself, but then so is everyone else. ...
The lavish final trailer for Disney’s live-action remake of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ has landed. And there’s the most footage yet of ‘Downton Abbey’ star Dan Stevens’ beast, not to mention the reimagining of the film’s theme tune by John Legend and Ariana Grande (originally sung by Angela Lansbury, of course). There are packs of wolves, dazzling set designs, CGI renderings of Lumière (Ewan McGregor) and Cogsworth (Sir Ian McKellen), and villagers with flaming torches lead by Luke Evans’ blusterous Gaston, chanting ‘kill the beast!’. ...
Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone literally shimmer opposite each other and are so charming that you have to resist the urge to try and kiss the big-screen while watching, while director Damien Chazelle instils ‘La La Land’ with a breeziness that’s reminiscent of the Golden Age of Hollywood, and composer Justin Hurwitz’s music is just all kinds of divine. ‘La La Land’ has made a huge impact with audiences, too. Damien Chazelle and Justin Hurwitz devised the idea when studying at Harvard University, where Chazelle graduated in 2007, while it was only the success of ‘Whiplash’ and its five Oscar nominations that convinced Lionsgate to put up the money for Chazelle’s vision of the musical over five years later.
Emma Watson has confirmed that before signing on to play Belle in Disney’s upcoming live-action ‘Beauty and the Beast’ film, she turned down the lead in 2015’s live-action ‘Cinderella’.
Oh god, why? WHY?? Just where does one start with this new Disney doll, on sale at US retailer JC Penney, and which is currently doing its very best to break the internet. Unveiled to tie in with the release of the forthcoming live-action remake of ‘Beauty and the Beast’, it’s reputedly the likeness of ‘Harry Potter’ star Emma Watson, who’s playing Belle in the new movie. But once the resemblance to a certain Canadian popstar is pointed out, it’s all you can think about. when you order an emma watson doll online but a justin bieber doll in a yellow dress & a wig arrives instead pic.twitter. ...
Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ will present us with an aspect of Emma Watson we haven’t encountered on screen before: her singing voice. Snippets of Watson singing the track ‘Something There’ were initially released in recent days to Instagram, taken from recordings of a soon-to-be-released singing Hasbro doll of Belle. The sound quality wasn’t great on these clips, so it’s nice to see that Disney have released an official stereo clip of the track to the Beauty and the Beast Twitter page.
Disney has released a spellbinding new trailer for the upcoming live action remake of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens. The trailer offers the first proper look at Stevens’ motion-captured take on Beast, as well as the talking cutlery of his castle and Luke Evans’ despicable Gaston. This latest look at director Bill Condon’s film sets up the basic story as Belle (Watson) seeks to rescue her father (Kevin Kline) from Beast’s castle, and ends up a prisoner herself.
