A Murderous Ian Mckellen Takes Center Stage in ‘The Good Liar’ Trailer
Ian McKellen is up to no good in the new trailer for Warner Bros. upcoming film “The Good Liar.”

Based on the novel by Nicholas Searle, the New Line drama follows Roy Courtnay (McKellen), a career con artist who sets his sights on well-to-do widow Betty McLeish (Helen Mirren) after meeting her online. However, his latest plot begins to goes awry as he begins to develop feelings for McLeish.

Jim Carter kicks off the trailer with some insight into McKellen’s con artist motivations and his seemingly fool proof plan to con Mirren, who McKellen says is worth millions.

“Is that why you think you do it? for the money?, Carter says. “It’s the game. It’s the adrenaline rush.”

“What if it is?,” McKellan responds, before the trailer cuts to a clip of him pushing another man in front of a subway train. Soon after, another particularly violent

NBCUniversal Slapped With $275 Million Defamation Suit by Covington Student

NBCUniversal was slapped with a $275 million lawsuit by Covington student Nick Sandmann on Wednesday. Sandmann’s lawyers have accused the network of defaming him during their coverage of a viral stand off between the student and a native American tribal elder at the Lincoln Memorial in January.

“NBCUniversal’s attacks on Nicholas included at least fifteen defamatory television broadcasts, six defamatory online articles, and many tweets falsely accusing Nicholas and his Covington Catholic High School (‘CovCath’) classmates of racists acts,” the suit reads. “NBCUniversal created a false narrative by portraying the ‘confrontation’ as a ‘hate crime’ committed by Nicholas.”

The suit also accused the network of “relying heavily on biased and unreliable sources without conducting any reasonable investigation of the circumstances surrounding the January 18 incident.”

Hear Emma Watson Sing “Something There” For Beauty And The Beast

Beauty and the Beast Gallery 1 of 10

We’ve seen Emma Watson act before. Several times, in fact. But we’ve never seen the young actress sing — until now, that is. Thanks to Disney’s 2017 live-action Beauty and the Beast remake, we’ll get to see (or, more appropriately, hear) if Ms. Hermoine Granger herself can belt out a tune as nicely as she can act. Ahead of the film’s release in March though, we’ve got a quick answer to that question thanks to a newly released recording.

The clip comes to us via co-producer Jack Morrissey’s Instagram account and is recorded from the tie-in toy, which should be hitting Toys ‘R’ Us shelves any day – or any second — now. To get a taste of what’s to come from the upcoming film/soundtrack, take a look/listen below.

Listen to a Brief Recording of Emma Watson Singing in Beauty In The Beast

The first trailer for Disney's live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast was full of wonderful visuals that got fans of the classic animated series really excited about the film. One thing they still haven't shared with us is what the actors sound like when they sing the classic songs.

Well, today we have a brief recording of Emma Watson as Belle singing the song “Something There.” The recording comes from a movie Belle doll at Toys ‘R Us, and it was recorded and posted online by one of the film's producers, Jack Morrissey.

Listen to the audio clip below and let us know what you think. She definitely doesn't have the singing chops as the original Belle, who was voiced by Paige O'Hara, but it'll have to do. Regardless, I still think this will be a great movie that will explode at the box office.

From Matthew Crawley to the Beast: Producer Shares a First Look at Dan Stevens as the Prince in Beauty and the Beast
Dan Stevens is sporting a new mane for the live-action adaptation of Disney's Beauty and the Beast - and he's not even dressed as his cursed self. A new behind-the-scenes photo shows the former Downton Abbey actor looking anything but beastly, smiling as he sports blonde wig that reaches his shoulders. Co-producer Jack Morrissey posted the photo on his Facebook page Friday, noting that the sneak peek comes "one year to the day after the completion of principal photography." He adds, "Here is your very first look at Dan Stevens as the Prince/Beast." Morrissey didn't stop with the teasers there.

‘Beauty and the Beast’: Here’s An Early Glimpse at the Live-Action Lumière and Cogsworth
Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast” remake is due next year, and thus far fans of the animated 1991 version have only been afforded brief glimpses of this new film’s look. (Jean Cocteau diehards more enamored with his 1946 adaptation of Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont’s fairy tale are, presumably, less curious about the whole thing.) That remains true today, though producer Jack Morrissey has posted concept art on his Facebook page featuring two fan favorites: Lumière and Cogsworth.

The image does come with a caveat, however, as Morrissey notes that “these designs are close but may not be final.” Even so, one imagines that the beloved candlestick (voiced by Ewan McGregor) and clock (Ian McKellen) will end up looking fairly similar to these renderings.

Newswire: Lumiere and Cogsworth are lookin’ kinda creepy in the live-action Beauty And The Beast

Cartoons—and especially Disney and its Pixar cronies—have taught us that there’s nothing more delightful than inanimate objects coming to life and singing catchy, Oscar-winning songs. But—outside Woody’s “Play nice” monologue at the end of Toy Story—they rarely cover how unsettling it would actually be to be constantly watched by the objects in your life.

Never have we felt that unease more keenly than today, when we came across some concept art for Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of Beauty And The Beast, posted by producer Jack Morrissey, and featuring “close but not final” renderings of the beloved clock-and-candle duo Cogsworth and Lumiere. Played by David Ogden Stiers and Jerry Orbach in the original, the pair were the lively Odd Couple at the heart of the enchanted castle’s domestic staff, trading banter and whimsy in equal parts. And now they look like this:

Despite the barnstorming success of its forebear, fantasy sequel Alice Through the Looking Glass failed to impress across critical and commercial circles, amassing only $294 million where its predecessor broke into Hollywood’s exclusive billion-dollar club six years ago.

Disney will be hoping James Bobin’s follow-up was simply a minor blip, though, as it gears up for the release of Beauty and the Beast early next year. Placing Emma Watson and Dan Stevens in the central roles, the House of Mouse has enveloped its leading duo with an all-star cast, and today co-producer Jack Morrissey has pulled back the curtain on our first look at Cogsworth (Ian McKellen) and Lumiere (Ewan McGregor). There’s a sneak peek at Dan Stevens’ Beast, too.

It’s Time: Get Excited for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

It’s getting harder and harder for me to pretend that Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens might not be flat out awesome. In an Internet age when hype and snark dictate everything, you’re either With Us or Against Us. Light Side or Dark Side. Are you of the camp that is gushing at every glint of information, every Easter egg and every minor announcement, or are you too cool, above it all and need to cynically cut down everyone’s fun? (I mean, there’s a stop motion Charlie Kaufman movie coming out this year. Come on, guys) But with the debut of the new Force Awakens trailer during Monday Night Football, I’m telling you now, if you weren’t already, get excited. This movie is for real.
