Emma Watson
Emma Watson is set to star as Disney princess Belle in the upcoming live film adaptation of "Beauty and the Beast."

The actress was the frontrunner to land the part in a Warner Bros. version of the story back in 2011, which was set to be directed by Guillermo del Toro, but the project was put on hold last summer after he dropped out.

Disney learned that Watson was the top choice for the Warner Bros. adaptation and once it stalled they swooped in and landed her for its adaptation of the story.

Bill Condon ("Dreamgirls," "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Parts 1&2") is set to direct the fi...

Bitter
Bitterness. In today’s very politically correct cinematic landscape it’s a trait that seems to be missing from the characters in movies as of late. We’re not just talking about everyday angry guys who are out for revenge or vengeance, but rather folks that no matter what the situation they manage to find the down side and unapologetically live and breathe there. And while there have been a plethora of top lists for the meanest and nastiest characters movies have to offer, we’re here to fill the need for curmudgeons who are just plain bitter.

'American Sniper' Wins Second Weekend In A Row

'American Sniper' Wins Second Weekend In A Row, Will Become The
This proves it: last weekend's out-of-nowhere "American Sniper" rout (a $90 million rout, no less) was no fluke. The Clint Eastwood-directed, Bradley Cooper-starring film about sniper Chris Kyle has stomped all over the box office for a second weekend in a row, ending in the #1 spot for a second time.

This past weekend, "American Sniper" drew in $64.4 million. Not only is that only a 28% drop from last week's take (far smaller than average, indicating the film has fantastic staying power), but it's got "American Sniper" locked in to become the most successful war film of all time.

Oscar Winners Who Have Also Won Razzies

The film industry is notoriously unforgiving, with a strong attitude of “What have you done for me lately?” Thus, it is not too shocking that there are several Oscar winners who have also received Razzie statues. This year, the likes of Nicolas Cage, Charlize Theron, and Susan Sarandon could join that list. Here are the award winners who have already experienced this bipolar career trajectory.

Forgotten Friday Flick - 'The Game'
With the success of David Fincher’s film "Gone Girl" (due in no small part to Rosamund Pike’s performance of course!) it seemed fitting to revisit some of the lessor known earlier work of the visually gifted auteur – welcome to Forgotten Friday Flick! Today we’re going old school Fincher back in the day when his sinister style and visual flair was front and center. Matched with a captivating story, terrific twists and one killer cast, this was a film I consider to be Fincher’s finest. Not to worry "Fight Club" fans, it’s only…"The Game."
