Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Remake: First teaser trailer

beauty-and-the-beast-trailer-e1464007383559

Yesterday morning, a teaser trailer was unveiled on Good Morning America for the live-action remake of the beloved animated film almost 10 months ahead of the film’s release.

The teaser gives the first look at Emma Watson as Belle, showing her arrival at the Beast’s castle. The castle’s famous residents can also be heard (“Look, it’s a girl!…What if she’s the one?”), as well as a piano version of the movie’s iconic theme. It gave me chills!

Rocky Horror Picture Show – Remake Trailer

The first trailer of Fox’s ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ offers a grand introduction of Laverne Cox’s faithful take on Dr. Frank-N-Furter.

Let’s do the time warp again and travel back to 1975 with the first trailer for Fox’s upcoming remake of Rocky Horror Picture Show. The short clip gives a glimpse at Laverne Cox’s take on Tim Curry’s Dr. Frank-N-Furter.

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW:   L-R:  Laverne Cox and Ben Vareen.

The clip begins with Brad (Ryan McCartan) and Janet (Victoria Justice) being greeted by Riff Raff (Reeve Carney). The brief trailer gives more than enough of an introduction to Cox’s faithful take on Curry’s Frank-N-Furter, nailing the character’s seductive, dramatic accent.

The trailer promises a Halloween premiere of the remake, though an exact date has not been set yet. Alongside Cox, Justice, McCartan and Carney, the film will also star Adam Lambert as Eddie, Christina Milian as Magenta, and Annaleigh Ashford as Columbia. Curry will return, but this time he’ll be narrating the event as the Criminologist. Kenny Ortega, who helmed Hocus Pocus and High School Musical, will direct the film.

I am super excited for this! 😀

Harley Quinn is getting her own film

Suicide Squad hits cinemas in early August and what everyone wants to know is “can it live up to the hype?” The trailers have been brilliant, the cast is great, DC surely wouldn’t mess this up?

One of the things that has a lot of people excited for the film has to be Margot Robbie’s Harley Quinn. She’s charismatic, crazy, fun, dangerous and hot!

So it makes sense that Warner Bros are already planning a spinoff Harley Quinn film.

The likelihood, though, according to the ‘Hollywood Reporter’, is that it won’t be a solo film and Quinn could feature with people like Batgirl and the Birds of Prey, a group of heroes like Black Canary, Huntress, Oracle and Lady Blackhawk.

Harley also had romantic relations with Poison Ivy and Catwoman and was in a trio with them called the Gotham City Sirens so there’s a chance we could see them appear. Lets just hope that if Poison Ivy does appear, they do the costume properly and not like that terrible Uma Thurman thing…

• About

Marcella Backland left the Metropolitan Police for the sake of her family, only to have her husband leave her. She returns to her job on the murder squad, investigating a case that seems disturbingly familiar to her.

• Pass/Fail

Pass: Anna Friel was the perfect actress to play Marcella. The intricate storyline, mystery and whirlwind ride made it so addictive.

Fail: We still feel a few questions are unanswered.. is there a second series? I’m not sure..

• Standout Performance

Anna Friel of course, she was amazing!

• Who Will Like This?

Detective/murder mystery fans.. The Bridge, Midsomer murders, Death in Paradise, The Americans..

• See It Now or Wait?

See it now on catch up!

• Highlight

Trying to guess who did it.. and Marcella getting the evidence she needed.. literally at the last second.

• Overall Impression

A fantastic mysterious and chilling detective drama.. Anna Friel does a solid job as the eponymous Marcella.. did she, didn’t she.. you were taken on a crazy journey with this series.  Sometimes the story was a little to convoluted at times and many plot threads didn’t go anywhere… perhaps the creators are hoping for a second series to answer some of the major unresolved questions or perhaps, just like in real life, not all questions are answered. While this was very much Anna Friel’s show the supporting cast was pretty impressive too; this included the likes of Sinéad Cusack, who played Grace’s mother and head of DTG construction and Jamie Bamber who plays a police officer who is suspicious of Marcella’s husband. You get hooked on this series very easily, the music was perfect and tense.. the characters and scenes often dark and tense. A great British mystery drama!
