    Disney pulls Beauty and the Beast from Malaysia over 'gay moment' censorship

    Disney has pulled the release of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ in Malaysia, because film censors said it would only be given a certificate if its now infamous ‘gay moment’ was removed. According to The Guardian, the two main cinema chains in Malaysia had expected to begin showing the film on Thursday but said it had now been postponed. The chairman of the Malaysian film censorship board Abdul Halim Abdul Hamid said that he did not know why the movie’s release had been pulled, because a PG13 certificate had been approved as long as the cut was made.

    King Kong Lives: Revisiting the terrible Kong flop you never saw

    Films about King Kong have a chequered history – for every great Ray Harryhausen stop-motion battle, there’s a cheesy cash-in featuring the mega-monkey’s offspring. Kong survives the fall from the Empire State Building, is fitted with an artificial heart – yes, really – then falls in love with a Lady Kong and has a kid with her.

    Logan lays waste to the world box office, with £200 million opening

    Hugh Jackman’s final outing as Wolverine has brought in the crowds, with ‘Logan’ delivering a sturdy $237.8 million (that’s just shy of £200 million) at the box office. Clearly the r-rated take on Jackman’s troubled hero has proved a draw, this latest iteration from director James Mangold being the most brooding and brutal yet. Presumed to be the final outing for Wolverine, it plays more like a late period John Wayne western than it does like a conventional superhero film’.

    Logan interview: James Mangold is NOT a fan of 'bloated' shared universe superhero movies

    Hugh Jackman returns for his last hurrah as Wolverine in ‘Logan’ this week, and it’s unlike any other superhero movie you’ve ever seen. It also feels very much like a James Mangold film with more in common with ‘3:10 to Yuma’ and ‘Cop Land’ thematically than it does even with his previous X-Men outing, 2013’s ‘The Wolverine’. The director credits the film’s singular tone and vision on the freedom granted by 20th Century Fox’s which allowed him to make a film that stood apart from the X-Men universe.

    First look: Emma Watson's opening song from Beauty and the Beast

    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. ...

    Mary Poppins Returns: Meryl Streep confirmed as Mary's cousin Topsy as first details emerge

    Filming on the long-awaited ‘Mary Poppins’ sequel has begun! The Walt Disney Studios confirmed principal photography on ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ is now underway at London’s Shepperton Studios in a press release loaded with piles of new supercalifragilisticexpialidocious information. Most excitingly perhaps is the news that Meryl Streep is confirmed to be playing Topsy, Mary’s “eccentric cousin”, while Dick Van Dyke’s role has been revealed to be Mr. Dawes Jr., “the chairman of Fidelity Fiduciary Bank”, who we presume is the son of the secondary character he played in the 1964 original. ...
