Disney Continuing Live-Action Trend With 'Beauty And The Beast' Remake

June 5th, 2014 4:00pm EDT
Beauty and the Beast
Disney is still all about animation, but they plan on continuing to cash in on live-action remakes – and Beauty and the Beast is next.

Following the $170 worldwide box office gross earned by Maleficent, Disney would be foolish not to continue its trend of live-action features. Oz the Great and Powerful, Alice in Wonderland, and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe were all successful for Disney Pictures.

Variety reports Bill Condon is set to direct the film. Condon's directing credits include Dreamgirls, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1 and 2, and The Fift...

2013 Fall TV Season: What Will Be The Second Cancellation?

October 8th, 2013 6:00pm EDT
Ironside
NBC- The Voice is still doing good numbers on Monday/Tuesday. The Blacklist is winning its timeslot, and was the first show (technically) to be rewarded with a back-nine pickup. Chicago Fire is also doing solid numbers on Tuesday. Revolution needs to regain some audience members if it wants a second season. With the success of The Blacklist, and Chicago Fire doing OK, Revolution is looking to be one of NBC’s weaker points right now. I can’t see it not running the full second season, but it might not get a third. Also, Ironside is definitely going to get cancelled. The premiere was so low, a...

Lindsay Lohan Stars In 'The Real Housewives Of Disney' In Hilarious 'SNL' Spoof (Video)

March 5th, 2012 8:36pm EST
SNL Real Housewives Of Disney
Lindsay Lohan made her return to television Saturday night hosting a rather lackluster episode of Saturday Night Live; but the star did have one gem up her sleeve - a parody of Bravo TV's Real Housewives.

Lohan, along with cast regulars Kristen Wiig, Abby Elliott, Nasim Pedrad and Vanessa Bayer, starred as Disney Princesses Rapunzel (Tangled), Cinderella, Belle (Beauty and the Beast), Jasmine (Aladdin) and Snow White, respectively, in the skit, and they mocked the usual drama of the hit Bravo series (watch it below).

During her opening monologue, the Mean Girls star unsurprisingly poked f...

Zachary Levi 'Freaked Out' By His 'Tangled' Role

December 1st, 2010 11:05am EST
Zachary Levi
Actor Zachary Levi "freaked out" when he was put up for the male lead in new animated movie musical Tangled - because he has always loved Disney movies.

The star voices the prince charming character opposite Mandy Moore's Princess Rapunzel, but Levi was convinced he'd miss out on the role - so he decided to give the audition his all.

He tells JustJared.com, "I heard about this from my agent and then freaked out. I mean, I think everyone in our generation grew up with these movies and loved them."

'Tangled' Review: Disney's Magic Is Back With Charming, Rousing Songs & Storyline

November 22nd, 2010 9:21am EST
Tangled-091710-0008.jpg
Disney has had some hits and misses with animated films in recent memory. Sure, the mighty house of mouse made “Beauty and The Beast” “Aladdin” and “The Lion King” but “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” was sad, “Pocahontas” was oddly animated, “Hercules” was grotesque, and “Mulan” was lacking in song quality. The less said about “Home on The Range” the better.

So Disney went to CGI animated films and tried to play catch up to Pixar. The results thus far have been mixed. “Meet the Robinsons” was cute, “Bolt” was adorable, “Chicken Little” was middling, and nothing really captured the 90's magic...

'Beauty And The Beast' Stars: Where Are They Now?

Robby Benson
Possibly Disney's crowning jewel in the company's "renaissance" -- the period from the late '80s to the late '90s that produced wildly popular and widely acclaimed animated flicks that became classics -- "Beauty and the Beast" is being released on DVD and Blu-ray in a combo pack on October 5.

The combo pack includes all kinds of goodies and extras: fully-restored footage (it's the first time it'll be in high def), a sing-along mode, games, a virtual tour of the castle, deleted scenes (including a never-before-seen one), and more.

Until last year's "Up," 1991's "Beauty and the Beast" was...

Vanessa Hudgens Heats Up The Red Carpet At The MTV Movie Awards

June 7th, 2010 9:40pm EDT
Vanessa Hudgens
Vanessa Hudgens showed a little bit of cleavage at the MTV Movie Awards last night in a short, white frock embellished with some sequins. She looks good, as always, but we think our Disney girl needs to mix up her style a bit. What do you think?

The "High School Musical" star recently said she's going to replace some of the "old" actresses in Hollywood: "All the actresses I love are getting old and I'm like, 'Who's going to replace them? You guys can't get old.' But, at the same time, I guess it's my turn."

Yikes! Put the claws away, Vanessa.

She stars in the upcoming film "Beastly" alon...

Tim Burton and Johnny Depp’s newest collaboration, Alice in Wonderland, hits theaters today.

Up in the Air
The Academy Awards are almost upon us, and nominations will be announced Feb. 2. Previously, this marathon award ceremony didn't mean much to those of us who love movies that twist your mind like "Momento" or make you cry with laughter like "The Hangover."

Movies that push the limits of comprehension, test our ability to keep watching, and make us pee our pants instead usually earn something like an MTV Movie Award, not an Academy Award.

Offbeat films deserve a little recognition even if they're not Oscar-worthy. These films don't fit into the genres that tend to win big-name awards...

Starpulse's Explosive Summer Movie Preview

Star Trek
Since the dawn of the American cinematic blockbuster in the late 1970s and early 1980s, moviegoers have eagerly waited for May - the unofficial beginning of summertime. This summer is no different. Films, and most popular media, are social mirrors, and this summer season supports that. The large box office contenders all deal with very similar themes: escapism and the support of the lone, outlaw hero figure (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Star Trek, Terminator Salvation, Up, Transformers 2, Public Enemies, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Inglourious Basterds, et...

TV's Most Kick-Ass Female Detectives

Once upon a television season, fans of police dramas and crime procedurals didn't think detectives could ever get more hard-boiled than Vic Mackey of "The Shield" or Andy Sipowicz of "NYPD Blue." Thankfully, we were wrong. Not only are there an increasing number of take-no-prisoners police detectives and home-sleuths on the case, but many of them are wearing skirts. From Poppy Montgomery, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Roselyn Sanchez in "Without A Trace" to Kathryn Morris in "Cold Case," "Law and Order's" S.

Spotlight On Movies That Became Musicals

August 28th, 2008 10:30am EDT
The Little Mermaid
Fans of movie musicals know that most of their favorites, like "Grease," "West Side Story," "The Sound of Music," and "Oklahoma!" were adapted from popular Broadway plays. However, the trend in recent years has been to flip that formula around by taking a big-screen hit and trying to turn it into a small-stage sensation.

Disney has had great success with its theatrical adaptations, starting in 1994 with the critically-acclaimed "Beauty and the Beast." The hits kept coming with stage productions of "The Lion King," "Mary Poppins," and, most recently, "The Little Mermaid."

These activities are extremely variable - ranging from serious sacrifices like chocolate and sexual intercourse (40 Days and 40 Nights, anyone?) to simple activities such as playing video games or watching TV.

Not only average Joes give up things for Lent, so do celebrities! Well, at least they do in our March Madness-inspired fantasy celebrity Lent sacrifice bracket. Here are seven celebrity and e...
