Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, is Disney’s latest addition to their live-action collection of classic fairytales. Director Bill Condon creates an enchanting rendition of the 1991 animation and transforms a ‘tale as old as time’ into a more cohesive musical, whilst keeping the integrity of the original. With a juxtaposition between faithful reiterations that strike our nostalgia as well as new, modernised adventures, audiences see a revived storyline that is still faithful to the beloved classic.
Once again, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson unite on-screen for the sequel to one of 2015’s most anticipated movies. The Fifty Shades of Grey series by E.L. James captured millions with its steamy sex scenes and enticing Mr. Grey, quickly becoming one of literature’s all-time best sellers. The erotic novels have become a guilty pleasure of many; however, translating from page to screen has shown to lose some of its appeal.
