Beauty and the Beast

I love this poster that spotlight’s Belle and Beast’s iconic dance. I can’t wait for this to come out on March 17! The live action adaptation of the Disney classic stars Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as Beast, with Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Emma Thompson, Ian McKellen, Stanley Tucci, Josh Gad, and Kevin Kline. The film was directed by Bill Condon.

They are starting with the 1995 comic book adaptation Tank Girl at noon est. The post-apocalyptic sci fi comedy stars, Lori Petty, Ice-T, Naomi Watts, and Malcolm McDowell. As the title suggests, the movie is about a girl and her tank, which she uses to fight against an evil corporation.

Next up, at 4pm est is the 2003 Tim Robbins sci fi romantic flick Code 46. It costars Samantha Morton and Jeanne Balibar. In the movie, Robbins portrays a fraud investigator who falls for the leader of the forgery ring in a dystopian Shanghai.

Future World Poster Jaws Of Satan Poster 

At 8pm et is Futureworld, the sequel of Westworld, which stars Peter Fonda and Blythe Danner. Taking place 2 years after Westworld, the movie follows to investigative reporters as they look into a mystery at the futuristic theme-park.

Lastly, at midnight is the 1981 cult horror flick Jaws of Satan. Set in a small Alabama town, Satan grants a king cobra demonic powers and it faces off with the Town’s priest. That sounds like my kinda Saturday night.

Charmed

Charmed ended in 2006 after eight successful seasons on the WB. The series focused on three sisters; originally Holly Marie Combs, Alyssa Milano, and Shannen Doherty as Piper, Phoebe, and Prue Halliwell, but Doherty left the show after season 3 and was replaced by Rose McGowan as Paige. It is over a decade since the show ended and the CW (which replaced the WB) is eyeing a reboot prequel series.

TV Line reports that the new series will take place in 1976 and focus on three witches fighting evil in a small New England town. While none of the original actors are attached to the new series (yet?) there are possibilities that they can connect the shows via time travel (which occurred on the original series), or by having the characters appear as kids (maybe a demon is hunting future witches). In the very least the new show has to include a cameo by Holly Marie Combs, who was the only star of the show to appear in every episode. The show is being brought back to life by Jennie Snyder Urman, an executive producer of the CW’s Jane the Virgin.

If you are bummed that none of the original characters are slated to return, back in 2010 there was a comic series that continued the story of the Halliwell sisters and took place after the TV series finale. Zenescope Entertainment created two “seasons” of the comic, which spanned 44 issues. The series ended last September, with no news if the comic will continue with a season 11.

It hits theaters on October 6th, 2017.
