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...

'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.

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.
