Beauty and the Beast

If there was ever a director born to bring the classic tale of Beauty and the Beast to life, it’s Christophe Gans. Come September we’ll see if he can do that in the grandiose style we are hoping for.

From The Press Release:
Shout! Factory Films announced today that epic fantasy adventure BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (LA BELLE ET LA BÊTE), a film by Christophe Gans, will open theatrically on September 23, 2016, in Los Angeles, New York, and select major markets, to be followed by openings in additional cities.

Directed by Gans (Silent Hill, The Brotherhood of the Wolf), BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (LA BELLE ET LA BÊTE) stars Vincent Cassel (Jason Bourne, Black Swan) and Léa Seydoux (Spectre, Blue Is the Warmest Color) with André Dussollier (A Very Long Engagement, Amélie). Produced by Eskwad and Pathé, this visually opulent major motion picture is a modern take on the classic French fairy tale. Filmed with state-of-the-art technology and under the imaginative vision of Christophe Gans, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (LA BELLE ET LA BÊTE) delivers a lush and vibrant cinematic adventure.

After the wreck of his ships, a financially-ruined merchant (André Dussollier) exiles himself in the countryside with his six children. Among them is Belle (Léa Seydoux), his youngest daughter, a joyful girl full of grace. One day, during an arduous journey, the merchant stumbles across the magical domain of the Beast (Vincent Cassel), who sentences him to death for stealing a rose.

Feeling responsible for the terrible fate which has befallen her family, Belle decides to sacrifice herself and take her father’s place. At the Beast’s castle, it is not death that awaits Belle, but a strange life in which fantastical moments mingle with gaiety and melancholy. Every night at dinner, Belle and the Beast sit down together.

They learn about each other, taming one another like two strangers who are total opposites. When she has to repulse his amorous advances, Belle tries to pierce the mysteries of the Beast and his domain. And when night falls, the Beast’s past is revealed to her bit by bit in her dreams. It is a tragic story, which tells her that this solitary and fearsome being was once a majestic prince. Armed with her courage, ignoring every danger, and opening her heart, Belle manages to release the Beast from his curse. And in doing so, she discovers true love.

Richard Grandpierre and Jérôme Seydoux present BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (LA BELLE ET LA BÊTE), a Christophe Gans Film. The film stars Vincent Cassel and Léa Seydoux with André Dussollier, Eduardo Noriega, Myriam Charleins, Audrey Lamy, Sara Giraudeau, Jonathan Demurger, Nicolas Gob, Louka Meliava and Yvonne Catterfeld.

A production of Eskwad, Pathé, TF1 Films Productions, Studio Babelsberg, and 120 Films, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (LA BELLE ET LA BÊTE) is directed by Christophe Gans; screenplay by Gans and Sandra Vo-Anh; produced by Richard Grandpierre and Jérôme Seydoux; executive producer, Frederic Doniguian; co-producers, Romain Le Grand, Henning Molfenter, Christoph Fisser, and Charlie Woebcken.

Hunt a Serial Killer Through Chicago In My Eyes On You

Published

on

Developer Storymind Entertainment have released the first gameplay trailer for My Eyes On You, and it looks like we’re in for something completely truly unique, in terms of both visuals and narrative.

My Eyes On You takes place in a near future version of Chicago, with FBI agent Jordan Adalien hunting an elusive serial killer known only as the Man in the Red Mask. The decisions you make will also dictate whether the game’s plot stays closer to reality or heads in a supernatural direction, so you’d better be careful what you wish for. Whilst searching for clues will be one of your main areas of focus, combat will also play an important role, too.

The trailer for My Eyes On You certainly gives off a strong Blade Runner 2049 vibe, so if that’s your thing, you’re probably in for a great time. It will be available on PC and consoles, although a release date has not yet been confirmed.

I’m going to let you guys into a bit of my life here and let you know that I am basically in a constant state of kicking myself for not having found the time to watch a single episode of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series.

I love the f*cking Punisher and I think Jon Bernthal’s portrayal of Frank Castle is quite possibly the best version (love ya, Tom Jane) of the character we have ever seen on screen.

Big or small.

It’s with this in mind that we wanted to share the awesome news the Netflix has officially given “The Punisher” the greenlight for season 2!

Yes, Frank Castle will be back to shoot more people in the back of the face sooner than later. The announcement was made recently on Facebook and you can check out the post below.

After that make sure to hit us up and let us know what you thought of the first season of Netflix’s “The Punisher” solo series in the comments below or on social media!
