Amy Schumer to Play ‘Barbie’ in Live-Action Movie, So Now We Know What to Expect

Sony’s live-action Barbie movie project has had a bit of a bumpy development process, initially hiring Diablo Cody to pen the screenplay (yay!) before tossing it out (boo!) and hiring three more (!) writers to deliver competing screenplays (huh?) — leaving us with little idea of what to expect from this wacky film. That drastically changed today, as Amy Schumer has officially been cast in the title role in the Barbie movie, which has an official screenplay and everything.

List Reveals Every Film Jackie Kennedy Watched in the White House, From James Bond to ‘Sabrina’

As it turns out, Jackie Kennedy didn’t just have great taste in fashion and furnishings — she was also something of a cinephile. A newly-released list reveals every film the former First Lady watched during her all-too-brief time in the White House, from home movies and TV specials (including her own) to James Bond and, in an eyebrow-raising move, the Marilyn Monroe classic The Misfits.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Is Working on a Secret Animated Film for Disney

Over the past year or so, Lin-Manuel Miranda has gone from Broadway sensation to Disney darling, lending his songwriting skills to Star Wars: The Force Awakens and signing on to star opposite Emily Blunt in the new Mary Poppins sequel — and that’s only half of it. According to Miranda, his role at Disney is rapidly expanding, and the latest project on his growing to-do list is a secret animated film with Zootopia co-director Byron Howard.

‘Beauty and the Beast’ Reveals Belle’s Reinvented Backstory and New High-Res Images

While we continue to wait for a full trailer (ahem, Disney, let’s do this already) for Beauty and the Beast, Disney has released nine new high-res images from the upcoming live-action remake. The stills (which you can view in the gallery above) feature beautiful, detailed looks at Emma Watson’s Belle, Dan Stevens’ Beast, Luke Evans’ Gaston, and all those charming animated household helpers. And although Bill Condon’s film looks pretty faithful to the original animated version, Watson has revealed that they made at least one significant change to the story — Belle’s backstory, specifically.

That Furby Toy Is Getting Its Own Movie Because Surely the End Is Nigh

Trolls. Ouija. Battleship. G.I. Joe. My Little Pony. LEGOs — okay, well, that last one really defied expectations, but overall, movies based on beloved classic toys are a real crapshoot. And that’s exactly how Bob Weinstein describes his plan to make a live-action / CGI hybrid movie based on Furby. “I’m rolling the dice and playing for hits,” Weinstein said at the American Film Market before revealing that the “Dimension” part of TWC-Dimension is actually a gaping void to look upon with great uncertainty and existential dread, a place where the realm of man is reflected in infinite emptiness — or so Werner Herzog might say.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Glen Powell Combine Powers to Bring ‘Captain Planet’ to the Big Screen

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard talk of a live-action Captain Planet movie: Sony was originally planning to bring the environmentalist superhero to the big screen, but now that the rights have lapsed, Paramount is in talks to snag them with a little help from real-life environmentalist superhero Leonardo DiCaprio. The actor is teaming up with Scream Queens star Glen Powell to develop a movie based on the ’90s cartoon series, but unlike other recent nostalgia cash-ins, this one has a positive message behind it.

30 Movie Posters Where Ben Affleck Stares Into the Distance and Contemplates Stuff

Ben Affleck is a man of many talents: A-list movie star, director, producer, Matt Damon’s BFF, Batman, vape enthusiast, and this week he’s an autistic accountant moonlighting as an action-hero in The Accountant. But there’s just one skill he can’t seem to master, and it’s knowing what to do with his face in movie posters. Like Adam Sandler, who makes the same face in every single poster, Affleck also has a very specific default facial expression: Blankly staring off into the distance.

‘Bad Moms’ to Get ‘Bad Dads’ Spinoff, aka Every Other Comedy Ever Made

Looks like the studio behind Bad Moms is creeping in on Wes Anderson’s territory: STX Entertainment is reportedly developing a spinoff to this summer’s hit comedy, this time focusing on not-so-great dads. Let’s be honest, though — Bad Dads could describe Wes Anderson’s whole filmography (there’s even an Anderson art tribute show and book with that title), but it could also easily describe most studio comedies.

The One Where Hollywood Keeps Taking Lisa Kudrow for Granted

In the decade-plus that’s passed since the series ended, it’s become increasingly clear that Lisa Kudrow was the best actor on Friends. Maybe we were too preoccupied with Rachel’s hair and perfecting our Joey impressions to notice it then, but thanks to the generous gift of hindsight, it seems glaringly obvious now. Despite David Schwimmer’s excellent Juice-fueled turn on The People v. O.J. Simpson, and Jennifer Aniston’s typically solid and, sure, occasionally good roles, it’s Kudrow who has proven herself as the most consistently great actor of the bunch. Why, then, has Hollywood been neglecting her so much in recent years? Why are films like Neighbors and The Girl on the Train wasting her on nothing, throwaway roles with a maximum screen time of three minutes?

‘Harry Potter’ Movies (Yes, All of Them) Heading to IMAX for One Week Only

We’ll be returning to J.K. Rowling’s magical world of wizards this November with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and to help get you in the proper spirit, Warner Bros. is re-releasing all eight of the Harry Potter films — in IMAX, no less. There is a catch, of course: The films will only screen for one week, so if you want to see Mr. Potter & Co. on the very-very-big screen, you might want to clear your calendar.

‘Beauty and the Beast’ Images Reveal First Look at Emma Watson’s Belle, Dan Stevens’ Beast

The wait for the full Beauty and the Beast trailer has reached agonizing levels, as Disney spent the last couple of months promoting the new 25th anniversary Blu-ray release of the classic animated film. Thankfully, we’ve gotten a few sneak peeks at the live-action redo via concept art, behind-the-scenes stills and a clip from a featurette on the aforementioned Blu-ray — and now we have a couple of new photos giving us our first look at Emma Watson’s Belle and Dan Stevens’ beast. But still no trailer. Sad trombone.

Chloe Moretz Drops Out of ‘The Little Mermaid,’ Wants to ‘Reassess’ Her Acting Choices

Chloe Moretz has handily avoided becoming another child actor-turned-cautionary tale, and though she’s wildly talented, her roles in recent years have been — with a few exceptions — mostly underwhelming. That’s not to say that she hasn’t been an interesting performer to watch; just that there’s a discrepancy in quality between Moretz’s skills and some of the films she’s chosen. The actress’ schedule has remained consistently busy since her breakout role in Kick-Ass, but according to Moretz, it may be time to take a step back.
