'Beauty and the Beast' and 'The Belko Experiment'

SONY DSC

Watson is visually convincing as Belle, but her vocal performance is lacking. The story begins as Belle's father, Maurice (Kevin Kline), gets lost in the woods on his way back to the town and ends up imprisoned in a beast's castle for picking a rose from his garden. I like the soundtrack more anyway.

Along with that, Belle's father Maurice, besides the change of his actions a little bit I think was another great actor for this part. While this was a courageous move, it was also really stupid.

"Beauty and the Beast" has taken in $300 million more than "Kong" on a worldwide basis. Dan Stevens's Beast may be better, but it is hard to say.

The hero who saves every scene he's in is Gaston. Another touching detail is that this Beast shares a love of books with Belle, which makes her love for him seem more genuine. The updated songs (also present in the original film) such as the titular masterpiece "Beauty and the Beast" or the ever-favorite "Be Our Guest" are incredibly faithful to the original versions and lose none of their original charm.

"Beauty and the Beast" led a robust weekend internationally with $119 million, followed by Warner-Legendary's "Kong: Skull Island" with $93 million - including $72.1 million in China for "Kong" with 13.9 million admissions from approximately 18,000 screens for a 71% share of the total box office and the second-biggest global opening in China this year after "Resident Evil" grossed a stunning $91 million.

Lumiere and Cogsworth are animated realistically.

Despite her fears, Belle befriends the castle's enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast's ugly exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true prince within. To me, it made it all feel even more complete, and answered questions a lot of people had throughout the first film.


Now, I have neither seen nor spoken to my first ex-husband in 17 years, so it is certainly possible that the love of some other woman melted his anger and revealed the kind prince underneath. Yet as a 10-year-old, he still had potential to grow out of his arrogance and selfishness.

The live-action remake of the 1991 animation all but crushed its competition, taking $13.1 million. Can Belle learn to look beneath the surface?

While Watson's vocals were a let down, all of the other major leads made up for where she was lacking.

In the original cartoon version, La Fou is silly and gets beat up and pushed around by Gaston.

"Nostalgia is a very powerful driver for these films".

The live action movie hit cinemas on March 17th.

The writers of the remake also altered numerous lines of the new film, which took away from the rhythm and tone they were trying to replicate from its animated predecessor. In interviews promoting the film, Watson said she joined the film's cast with the expectation that this would be a more independent, well-detailed version of the character. He fawns over Gaston and gets pushed around and is considered a submissive character. But in doing so, the film may have accidentally created a NEW plot hole. or not, if you believe a wild new fan theory making the rounds this week.
