‘Baywatch’ Trailer: Dwayne Johnson Jumps Into An Ocean Of Fire Because He can
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Baywatch

Paramount Pictures has released the second trailer for Baywatch, from Horrible Bosses director Seth Gordon. The film is based on the hit 90s show that centered on a group of lifeguards who saved lives on the titular beach. Of course, the show was probably best known for their slow-motion runs than anything else. But still, with the success of the Jump Street film franchise, studios are looking at what shows they can revitalize and turn into films.

Check out the full trailer for Baywatch here below.

‘Power Rangers’ Cast Puts A New Spin On “It’s Morphin Time”
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Power Rangers header

As a kid who grew up in the 90s, I practically lived and breathed Saturday morning TV, and nothing said get up early to watch shows than the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. It has been nearly a quarter of a century since the American version of the popular Japanese Super Sentai aired. Since then, over 20 different themed Power Rangers shows have aired and two different theatrical films were released.

Now, a whole new version will hit theaters next week in Power Rangers. Directed by Dean Israelite (Earth To Echo), the film is a callback to the first show that aired in the U.S. But this time there is a whole new group of kids: Jason Scott (Dacre Montgomery) Kimberly Hart (Naomi Scott), Billy Cranston (RJ Cyler), Trini (Becky G), and Zack (Ludi Lin) who will morph into a new team to fight a different kind of Rita Replusia (Elizabeth Banks).

We were fortunate enough to sit down with a group of our fellow journalists to talk to the cast and crew about making the film and appealing to the older fans while also drawing in new audiences. We also learned about the fight training and what it was like for the young cast to star opposite Banks. Check it all out here below.

‘Mulan’ Director Confirms Live-Action Film Will Not Be A Musical And Why That Is Okay
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Mulan

Beauty and The Beast singlehandedly won the box office over last weekend with a record-setting $170 million. It’s not like this is the first time that the studio has found success in adapting their animated classics, nor will it be the last. They are already developing live-action adaptations of Dumbo, Aladdin, Sword in the Stone, and even Winnie The Pooh. But the one adaptation that seems to be getting a lot more attention, the wrong kind, is Mulan.

More on the story below.

The New ‘Matrix’ Film Might Not Be A Reboot After All
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

The Matrix

Over the weekend, the Internet went crazy when word got out that The Matrix was being rebooted. In all fairness, something like this getting rebooted isn’t at all surprising considering studios want to revive certain successful franchises. But for a film to end the way it did, why even bother rebooting it when there is so much more story left to tell? So Zak Penn, the writer hired to write the next (or newest) chapter of The Matrix, took to Twitter to explain what he will be doing for the franchise.

Find out his thoughts on the matter and his “approach” to it below.

Death Ward 13 movie banner

Don’t Look in the Basement was a violent, cheaply made exploitation horror film from 1973 akin to Wes Craven’s Last House on the Left. Inspired by director S.F. Brownrigg’s original film and the work of Edgar Allen Poe, the film is being remade under the title Death Ward 13 and is set to star the man with one of the greatest name in rock music history, ex-Misfits guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein!

‘Beauty and The Beast’ Interview: Emma Watson On Defining and Redefining Belle

Beauty and the Beast Emma Watson

It has been 26 years since Disney released their Oscar-winning animated hit Beauty and the Beast, and the film continues to resonate with its fans. These live-action remakes have given the studio the confidence it needs to open the vault and revisit which films deserve the same treatment. So it seems more than appropriate for Disney to release this new version with an all-star cast that includes of Emma Watson playing Belle.

The film has a special place in Watson’s heart as it not only inspired her to be an actress, but it has also shaped the person that she is today. We were invited to attend the film’s press conference along with our fellow journalists to talk to the actress about her approach to the role, accepting who you are, and discovering your place in the world as an outsider. Check out what she had to say and more below.

eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

The Fly

Sure, the word remake tends to make people cringe, but with the right people behind it, said remake could be very good. That takes us to a remake of The Fly. According to new reports, a new version of the film is on the way from Sleight director J.D. Dillard and his writing partner Alex Theurer. More on the story below.

Deadline says Dillard will develop a new script with his writing partner Theurer. The new film would fly under the 20th Century Fox banner. Apparently, a remake was in the works over at the studio, and it was only a matter of time before news of it came about.

Movie Review: Disney’s Beauty and The Beast (2017)
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and The Beast
Director: Bill Condon
Screenwriter: Stephen Chbosky, Evan Spiliotopoulos
Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Audra McDonald, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson
Distributor: Walt Disney Studios
Rated PG | 129 Minutes
Release Date: March 17, 2017

Never let it be said that Walt Disney Studios does not put any effort into their live-action adaptations of their animated classics. It’s easy to assume that they are simply trying to milk a lucrative trend that they have created, especially with the success of films like Cinderella and The Jungle Book, and to a lesser extent Maleficent and Alice in Wonderland. So it only makes sense that Disney continue that tradition with a live-action adaptation of Beauty and The Beast. But unlike the aforementioned titles, Beauty and The Beast is so much closer to its animated counterpart that it feels like a rehash of it just with a few additional scenes for some extra exposition. Plus there are also some new songs from Alan Menken. So the film ends up being more like a musical than any of the other films that came before it.

The only problem is that it’s all those extra scenes act more like filler than actual exposition. All it really does is elongate the film to unnecessary lengths. But there is a very bright side to all of this. The new renditions of the songs are perfect, and even some of the new songs had me swooning for repeat listens. Check out my full review below.

‘Beauty and The Beast’ Interview: Bill Condon & Alan Menken On Adapting A Disney Classic
eelyajekiM   |  @   |  

Beauty and the Beast

Disney has found huge success in adapting their classic animated tales into a live-action film. From Cinderella, The Jungle Book, and to a lesser extent Maleficent and Alice In Wonderland, the studio will continue to mine their vault to continue to deliver one hit after another. But they have a tall order with Beauty and the Beast, as that probably has the largest fanbase for any Disney animated film. Starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens as the title characters, audiences can expect to see an almost mirror image in this live-action adaptation, plus some additional storytelling and some brand new music.

During the film’s press junket, we got to sit down with our fellow journalists to talk to director Bill Condon, music composer Alan Menken, and film stars Audra McDonald and Gugu Mbatha-Raw about what it was like to bring everyone’s favorite Disney movie to life and the pressures that come with it. Check it out here below what they had to say.

Watch: Official Video For ‘Beauty and The Beast’ Title Song Sung By John Legend and Ariana Grande

John Legend and Ariana Grande Sing Beauty and the Beast Title Song

In the days leading up to the release of Beauty and the Beast you’ll be seeing a lot of press junket material and reviews. To keep things short regarding the latter, it’s an okay movie on a narrative level, but the chemistry between the cast, the music, and production design are out of this world. Of course, since the film is so faithful to the original, you can expect contemporary covers of songs like “Beauty and the Beast.”

Disney has released the official music video for the title song, this time sung by John Legend and Ariana Grande. Check it out below.
