Guillermo del Toro to direct 'Beauty and the Beast,' Emma Watson to star

After seeing Beastly, it’s hard to get excited about any new live-action Beauty and the Beast remake, but wiht Guillermo del Toro at the helm, it’s instantly interesting. Variety reports that the renowned director of Hellboy and Pan’s Labyrinth will take charge of “Beast,” a new take on the classic tale. Better, the casting is already going well, with Emma Watson (Harry Potter) signing on to play the beauty—an interesting, but enticing choice. Andrew Davies, known for Bridget Jones’s Diary back in 2001 but more recently for the quite lame The Three Musketeershas been tapped to write.

'Hangover' stars to get $15 million a piece to make part III

It looks like The Hangover III could be getting the go ahead soon, with the three main stars set to sign on for a substantial pay increase, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis are each asking for $15 million (against backend) to sign on for the second sequel and it looks as though Warner is ready to pay. The studio is short of all-but-guaranteed hits, having already kissed goodbye to one major franchise following the final installment of Harry Potter and with Christopher Nolan’s Batman series coming to an end this summer.

'Rampage' the movie: This could be a horrible idea

Not being much of a gamer, I’m somewhat a “noob” when it comes to complaining about Hollywood adapting (and usually ruining) a beloved video game. Now that New Line Cinema, sister company to Warner Brothers, has announced its intention to develop a Rampage movie, however, I feel like my day is coming.

Check out this Harry Potter series recap to prepare for Deathly Hallows Part 2

When you watch the Harry Potter series over the course of 10 years, it's easy to lose sight of how the movie franchise has evolved. This video recap of all seven movies (and a preview of Deathly Hallows Part 2) is a good reminder of how much the series has grown since The Sorcerer's Stone hit theaters in 2001. It's unlikely that any of the cast will ever shake their involvement, but who would want to? Even if they never get another role, they were a part of what must be the best 8-part movie series of all time.

Warner Bros. sues maker of Harry Popper wizard condoms

Harry Potter is getting older. He has to be 16 or 17 in the new movie, well past your typical muggle age of consent. That doesn't mean Warner Bros. is okay with a brand of condoms trying to capitalize on their cash cow. The company is suing the Swiss company behind the Harry Popper condom.

Cancel the LEGO movie! It's a terrible idea

So the news is out, the Warner Bros. Lego movie has a pair of directors. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the team responsible for last year's Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs (review), will write and direct the still unnamed Lego movie. If you think a Lego movie is a bad idea, like I do, you'll be livid when you hear this.

The plot is being kept under wraps, but it will be an adventure in the Lego world mixing live action and animation.

Are these people insane?! The only way Legos could work in a movie is if they were a part of Toy Story. On its own, the classic Lego brand hasn't done well outside of the physical toy market. Making a feature film in the category of Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and Garfield is like letting your girlfriend live after she's been bitten by a zombie, then making out with her. Not only are you putting your life in danger, you're clearly suicidal.
