Tired of hearing about the dystopian nightmare that is a Donald Trump presidency? You’ve come to the right place. Amazingly, there is other news out there and some of it’s pretty awesome.
Beauty and the Beast Trailer
We finally got the trailer for Disney’s live-action Beauty and the Beast and it’s everything that I could have ever wished for. It took Fifty Shades Darker’s title as the most viewed trailer in 24 hours so clearly the rest of the world is loving it as much as myself. The film stars Emma Watson and Dan Stevens as the eponymous Beauty and Beast with Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson, and Stanley Tucci in starring roles. You can look forward to seeing the film from March 17th but if you haven’t seen the trailer yet or you just need another dose to tide you over, you can watch it below:
Jackie Chan Receives An Oscar
The Academy Awards ceremony takes place in February but that didn’t stop Jackie Chan from finally getting his Oscar this weekend. At the Governor’s awards on Saturday night, four honorary Oscars were distributed by the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences. Chan is a film icon and I can think of few who deserve it more. He had this to say:
“Standing here is a dream…After 56 years in the film industry, making more than 200 films, breaking so many bones, finally this is mine.”
Matt Damon Will Cameo In New Ocean’s Film
The more that I hear about Ocean’s Eight the more I can’t wait for its arrival. I love the heist movie genre but the quality of the movie is really down to the cast and this cast is unbelievable: Sandra Bullock, Mindy Kaling, Anne Hathaway… the list goes on (and just gets more impressive). Now it has been revealed that Matt Damon will be making a cameo in the film, most likely as his Ocean’s Eleven character, Linus Caldwell.
How many times have you watched the Beauty and the Beast trailer? Who do you think deserves an honorary Oscar? What’s your dream heist movie line-up? Let me know in the comments.
