Beauty and the Beast had an enormous opening weekend, devouring $170 million. That makes it the biggest March opening ever, taking down Batman v. Superman, and also the largest PG-rated opening, which means we’re in for more family-oriented fare. (Honestly, that would be welcome, since adults have pretty well hijacked every other genre for themselves. Full Story

Can we stop pretending Oprah is going to run for president? I’ve been catching up on the Internet since being away on vacation for ten days with sporadic-at-best wifi and most Oprah-related headlines I’ve seen have been about her hypothetical political career. Full Story

You know the story: Belle’s a bookworm who doesn’t fit in, there’s a beast, a cursed castle, and lots of musical numbers. The live action remake of Beauty and the Beast changes little of the main plot, but it does take pains to address some questions that have lingered in the twenty-six years since the animated movie came out, like “why did the servants get cursed, too?” (because they “did nothing” about the prince turning into a spoilt nightmare person), and “can anyone in the village read besides Belle and the book guy?” (no). Full Story

Chris Evans is “surrendering”

That’s what he was reading when he spoke to Esquire for their new issue to promote the upcoming Gifted – The Surrender Experiment. Have you read it? It was a book people were talking about a couple of years ago, in short about letting life lead you. I got through half of it. And then I started reading Shonda Rhimes’s Year Of Yes which, at least for me, because we all interpret differently, was more resonant. Full Story

This is a BAD IDEA

Sarah Posted by Sarah at March 15, 2017 15:36:52 March 15, 2017 15:36:52

Today in This Is A Terrible F*cking Idea, Seriously, Whose Idea Was This news, Warner Brothers is exploring the possibility of rebooting The Matrix. Everything is sequels and reboots these days, so it’s not outside the realm of expectation that someone would have this idea—apparently producer Joel Silver had previously approached the studio about doing a new/another Matrix movie—it’s just that it’s so obviously a bad idea I can’t believe it’s survived long enough to make into a trade. Full Story

It’s been a while, right? Daniel Craig stepped out today in London for the Into Film Awards to honour emerging talent. Whenever we talk about Daniel, we have to talk about Bond. And there’s been some Bond news, sort of. Full Story

Yesterday it was announced that Sony will finally make the sequel to their 2011 Girl with the Dragon Tattoo remake. Sony is skipping the other books in Stieg Larsson’s trilogy, though, and going right to the new book, The Girl in the Spider’s Web, written by David Lagercrantz. That’s maybe not a bad idea. Full Story

Kong: Skull Island – great monsters, unintentional comedy

Kong: Skull Island opened this weekend with $61 million, which is a respectable spring opener, but well short of Godzilla’s $93 million haul in 2014. Kong is a prequel to Godzilla, and the second entry into Warner Brothers’ budding monster-centric cinematic universe, so slightly deflated numbers aren’t the best sign in the world (read: diminishing returns). Full Story
