3rd Update, Friday Night: Refresh for chart If there's a tale as old as time at the box office this weekend, it's the non-stop trend that premium brands are much bigger stars than the talent on the poster. This weekend we have Disney's Beauty and the Beast grossing a massive $81M in its second run at No. 1 followed by Lionsgate's Saban's Power Rangers with an estimated $42M . Granted, Beauty and the Beast literally does have the help of a very popular leading lady in Harry...

DISNEY is taking a rather big risk by adapting its own beloved film which became the first animated feature to be nominated for best picture at the 1991 Academy Awards. But to give credit where it is due, director Condon has injected a few new things into this adaptation that are not seen in the original animated film. This live action movie begins with a flashback of how a pompous prince (Dan Stevens) gets turned into a beast after he has been unkind to a poor elderly stranger who enters his castle. Turns out the old lady is actually an enchantress, and not only does she turn him into a cursed beast, but she also turns all those who live in his castle into household objects. Back to the present day, we find Belle (Emma Watson), the daughter of a clockmaker (Kevin Kline). She is an oddity in her small French village because she loves to read and dreams of seeing the world.

We didn't see this parody coming, but now that it's here it seems like a very obvious mashup that needed to happen. Of course, we could easily see Deadpool being the star of his own musical. And of course, the song "Gaston" from Beauty and the Beast is a perfect fit for Deadpool to proclaim his own Deadpool-ness. Yet another unnecessary parody that is necessary now that it's been made.

The friendly, upbeat late night host James Corden doesn't seem difficult to work with, but this video of life behind the scenes of the Late Late Show would suggest otherwise. SEE ALSO: James Corden makes a stunning Belle in a Beauty and the Beast' crosswalk musical In the video above, Corden takes us through a Hugh Grant pitch meeting and it's awkward from the get go. After boasting his refined taste in niche British film, Corden challenges his writing staff to come up with a swoon-worthy sketch for Hugh Grant. The hilarious video escalates quickly after Corden fires a writer for infringing upon his spotlight. Common sense would suggest Corden is nothing like his mockumentary alter-ego, but he does play the diva with surprising facility. Read more...

Josh Gad, otherwise known as LeFou from the new Beauty and the Beast movie, made an appearance on James Corden's Late Late Show on Wednesday. But he didn't just want to be a guest on the show. He wanted to be a co-host. Of course, James Corden wasn't too happy about that idea. But Gad came prepared to plead his case in the form of a slew of songs from Beauty and the Beast, with all the lyrics changed to reflect why Corden's show needs a dose of Gad. What results is a spectacular musical number, complete with backup dancers and confetti. Read more... More about Late Late Show , Late Night , Beauty And The Beast , Josh Gad , and James Corden

The first animated film to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar, the 1991 original is regarded as one of the very finest Disney animated features. For the live action take, Bill Condon (the last two Twilight movies, Dreamgirls , Gods And Monsters ) is directing, and quite an ensemble has been recruited. Emma Watson and Dan Stevens are in the title roles, whilstdeep breathEwan McGregor, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Stanley Tucci, Emma Thompson, Sir Ian McKellen, Kevin Kline and Josh Gad head up the support.

A new study shows attractive people have more trouble staying together. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go "A series of studies has concluded that better-looking people’s relationships seem to break down sooner than the averagely attractive. So if you only ever seem to have short-term relationships, you can at least take comfort in the fact that it could simply be because you’re just too beautiful. It’s been suggested that the reason the attractive people’s relationships tend to break down quicker is that “they take greater interest in alternative partners, especially when dissatisfied in their current relationship,” the British Psychological Society writes. In a new study titledAttractiveness and relationship longevity: Beauty is not what it is cracked up to be,’ Harvard University researchers asked two women to rate the attractiveness of 238 men in their high school yearbook pictures (at the age of 17 or 18).

By Wu Mingren Huangshan (written in the Han script as 黄山, and literally translated as ‘Yellow Mountain’) is a mountain range located in the southern part of Anhui Province, in the eastern region of China. This mountain range is well known for its picturesque landscape, which is often considered to be the most beautiful in China. Apart from its natural scenery, Huangshan is also renowned for its Bridge of Immortals, which is dubbed by certain sources as the “world’s highest bridge”. Huangshan, One of China’s Most Magical Mountains A travel writer by the name of Xu Xiake, who lived during the Ming Dynasty, wrote that “薄海内外之名山,无如徽之黄山。登黄山,天下无山,观止矣!”, which may be more or less translated as follows, “Whilst there are many famous mountains, there is none like Huangshan. Having ascended Huangshan, there are no more mountains under Heaven, the viewing (of other mountains) stops”.
