Disney’s latest attempt at translating one of its classic animated films to live-action is a beauty, if a bit flawed.
For the live-action take, the script was tweaked to allow Belle to be even more independent (and less of a Stockholm Syndrome sufferer) and a late tweak include a couple of blink-and-you’ll-miss-it gay moments. Neither of these tweaks is a flaw.
You all know the story. Most of you loved the Disney animated film.
Now Disney has released the atmospheric teaser trailer for the live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast – directed by Oscar®-winner Bill Condon and starring Emma Watson as Belle. Once again, it looks like they got it right.
Check it out after the jump. Walt Disney’s Beauty and the Beast will be in theaters on May 17th, 2017.
Bill Condon’s The Fifth Estate endeavors to tell us the story of WikiLeaks while painting a picture of the men behind its success and going behind the scenes of the website’s scoops. He gets amazing performances from Benedict Cumberbatch, as Julian Assange, and Daniel Brühl, as Daniel Berg – the visionary and the grounding factor of the story. Unfortunately, in trying to do too much, he has produced a film that doesn’t quite match its ambitions.
DreamWorks’ Julian Assange/WikiLeaks film, The Fifth Estate hits theaters next week (October 18th). A new clip – showing a bit of a disagreement between WikiLeaks’ founders (above) – and featurette (after the jump) have just been released. They point to the film being quite the tension-pack tale.
There are documentaries that lay out the facts of the WikiLeaks/Julian Assange story, so why a journalistic thriller? The Fifth Estate’s director, Bill Condon – and stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Daniel Bruhl and Laura Linney – talk about that in a brand new featurette. Check it out after the jump.
