Live-Action 'Beauty And The Beast' Remake Graces With Emotionally Musical Full Trailer

Watching Disney's animated movies way back when VHS were still in was a family affair. My aunt who lived in the States (until now) would bring with her copies of every animated movies made by Disney when she visits the country and then the whole clan would crowd in their home to watch them until evening. I was looking forward for those gatherings every year...

One of those feature length animations was Beauty and the Beast, and I could still remember everyone's delight, smiles, shrieks and fearful moaning while watching it. And now that technology has caught up with the technicalities of the movie a live-action adaptation is in the works and is about to grace our cinemas. I for one would now be able to relive those moments, bringing in a bitter-sweet nostalgia.

Beauty and the Beast

I've got to be honest. I don't know much about Luc Besson (I have only a vague recollection of The Fifth Element way back when I was small), but the moment I saw with trepidation the new trailer for his upcoming movie called Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets I am already sold. Just watch the trailer so you know what I mean.

This Luc Besson-directed and -written movie stars Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, Clive Owen, Rihanna, Ethan Hawke, John Goodman, Herbie Hancock, and Kris Wu. The movie was adapted from the work by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mézières called Valérian and Laureline.
