Abdul Halim Abdul Hamid, head of Malaysia’s Film Censorship Board, says he sought to cut more than four minutes of material from “Beauty And The Beast” – far more than the three-second “gay moment” that has flustered regulators in some other countries. Disney refused, and pulled the film from release last Thursday in Malaysia. In... Read more »
The live action ‘Beauty and the Beast’ remake is set to make history on March 17 as it features Disney’s first explicitly LGBT character. Speaking to Attitude magazine, the film’s director Bill Condon confirmed that Gaston’s sidekick LeFou – as played by ‘Frozen’ star Josh Gad – harbours romantic feelings for the narcissistic villain, and it’s not just subtext. “LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston,” says Condon in the magazine’s April edition.
Be our guest and feast your eyes on some of the amazing ‘Beauty and the Beast’ merchandise that’s been released to celebrate the release of Disney’s live action remake of the animated classic.

It turns out ‘Dracula Untold’ isn’t a Universal Monsters film after all. It was long-rumoured that ‘Dracula Untold’ was the unofficial launch of Universal’s Monsters franchise – a shared universe which will bring the likes of The Mummy, Wolf Man and Dracula back to the big screen. During an interview with Screen Rant, ‘The Mummy’ director Alex Kurtzman gave a concrete answer as to whether ‘Dracula Untold’ will connect to this larger film franchise.
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.
Disney’s most conceited, muscle-bound narcissist Gaston is set to be even more musky and macho in the forthcoming live-action version of ‘Beauty and the Beast’. According to composer Alan Menken, there will be lines that were dropped from the original animation, as created by his late collaborator, the legendary lyricist and playwright Howard Ashman. “In Gaston, we had a treasure trove of lyrics that Howard [Ashman] had written that we did not put in the movie,” Menken told Entertainment Weekly.
The 37-year-old Welsh actor, who stars in this week’s new thriller ‘The Girl on the Train’, has admitted he’d love to be the second Welsh James Bond, following in the footsteps of Timothy Dalton. “[The James Bond role] is probably one of the most attractive roles – in a franchise – for a male actor of my age right now,” Evans tells Yahoo Movies. The much-coveted role of James Bond is still – until we hear otherwise – filled by Daniel Craig, who has four films as 007 under his belt.
The adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ hit novel ‘The Girl on the Train’ hits cinemas this week on 5 October, with Emily Blunt in the lead role as Rachel, the unreliable drunk who gets embroiled in a murder mystery.
Legendary Disney composer Alan Menken seems hugely pleased with how the upcoming live-action remake from director Bill Condon is shaping up. Of Emma Watson, Menken declares, “She’s really good! I can’t picture anyone else, honestly. The ensemble is filled out by Kevin Kline as Belle’s father, Josh Gad as Le Fou, Emma Thompson as Mrs Potts, Ian McKellen as Cogsworth and Ewan McGregor as Lumiere.
Readers may recall that the initial trailer for the film released earlier this year was a teaser in the truest sense of the word, showing us only brief glimpses around the Beast’s enchanted mansion, a few lines of dialogue, and a partial reveal of Emma Watson’s face as Belle, behind the pivotal rose. Secondly, we have what appears to be a re-enactment of the famed ‘Gaston’ inn scene – and we would assume the big-looking fellow in red with his back to the camera is Luke Evans as Gaston himself, possibly with Josh Gad as Le Fou in front of him. ‘Beauty and the Beast’ will also feature Emma Thompson as Mrs Potts, Kevin Kline as Belle’s father, and Dan Stevens as the Beast.
