Josh Gad Recalls The First Time He Watched Beauty And The Beast


Josh Gad

Disney's live action remake of 'Beauty and the Beast' is, at this point, pretty much guaranteed to be a solid release of the year with a stellar cast and a visually stunning set. But for Josh Gad, there's a level of excitement that the original brought that gives the new version a lot to live up to.

Movie theatres are generally silent places, save for the occasional rustle of popcorn, a laugh if it's a comedy, and a scream if it's a horror. But when Josh Gad, who plays Gaston's sidekick Le Fou, went to see the animated 'Beauty and the Beast' for the first time at a South Florida cinema in 1991, he experienced a reaction that has stayed with him to this day.

Beauty And The Beast Trailer


Take a closer look at the cast of 'Beauty and the Beast' in the final trailer for the forthcoming live-action Disney re-boot. Gaston loves himself more than Belle, Belle loves books more than boys, and Maurice loves his daughter more than anybody else. Meanwhile, the Beast hates everything and everyone equally, but that's about to change when Belle volunteers herself as his prisoner in exchange for her father's freedom. She has much pity for the Beast and wants to make the best out of a terrible situation, especially when he presents her with the library of her dreams. He's relying on her love to rescue him from the curse that binds him in his monstrous form, and to rescue his friends and servants from their furnitural guises. But together they have an important lesson to learn about love and companionship.

Disney have released the new teaser trailer for the remake of the much-loved animated film Beauty and the Beast. The 2017 version of this classic Disney film is a live-action movie and it is claimed that the Disney magic will not be lost as a result, but rather preserved and made even more magical.

However Belle soon finds herself caught in the middle between the two men who want her, the Beast and Gaston and it is in this climatic end that leads her to confess her love for one of them, but which one she chooses, you'll have to watch and see.

The Angry Birds Movie Review

Very Good

There's nothing particularly memorable about this frantic animated romp, which adapts the iconic phone-app game into a movie using a rather corny plot. But the film is so random that it can't help but get the audience laughing. Youngsters will be delighted by the brightly coloured wackiness, while adults will chuckle at the steady stream of grown-up visual and verbal gags, many of which are frankly surprising to find in a children's movie.

It's set on the isolated Bird Island, where the residents have never learned how to fly and believe they are the only life in the sea. In their tight-knit community, Red (voiced by Jason Sudeikis) is an outcast because of his too-independent thinking. He's ordered to take anger management classes with groovy guru Matilda (Maya Rudolph), where his fellow students are the hyperactive Chuck (Josh Gad), the hulking Terence (Sean Penn) and the explosive Bomb (Danny McBride). Then a pig named Leonard (Bill Hader) arrives on the island, introducing new technology like sling shots and trampolines and planning a big party. But of course he has a much more nefarious intention that only Red can see. In need of help, Red takes Chuck and Bomb in search of the mythical Mighty Eagle (Peter Dinklage), the only bird on the island who can fly.

There's a slightly nagging sense that Donald Trump wrote this script (it's about a guy who's ignored as he obnoxiously shouts about the dangers of letting strangers into the community, then is proved right). But the film is so utterly ridiculous that it's impossible to take this rather dodgy theme seriously. What's even more odd is how much of the humour is aimed at grown-ups, including innuendo, puns, gross-out gags and unexpected violence, most of which will go over young viewers' heads. But it's so unfocussed that the only response is to laugh in disbelief that someone thought a joke so near-the-knuckle was appropriate for a kids' movie.

Red, the starring animated character voiced by US star Jason Sudeikis in the upcoming "The Angry Birds Movie," was named Honorary Ambassador for Green on the International Day of Happiness today at the United Nations. The appointment of Red is part of the #AngryBirdsHappyPlanet campaign to help the world body promote the International Day of Happiness, which is observed on March 20 each year, and encourage people to take action against climate change and its impacts. The International Day of Happiness recognizes that Gross Domestic Product alone cannot measure the wealth and well-being of a country's population and a more inclusive, equitable, balanced and sustainable approach to growth and development is key to being happy. After United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon named Red as Honorary Ambassador for Green, the campaign was presented to hundreds of young people in the iconic General Assembly Hall of the United Nations. The presentation included the movie's US stars Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad and Maya Rudolph as well as producers John Cohen and Catherine Winder, who asked the attendees for their support to make the Angry Birds happy by doing their part to take action against climate change. They presented the "Help Red Go Green" materials including public service announcements created to support the campaign. By participating in the #AngryBirdsHappyPlanet campaign, individuals can make the Angry Birds happy and "Help Red Go Green" by posting photos and messages to show how they are protecting our planet by recycling, taking public transportation and conserving water, for example.

Angry Birds Trailer


Red lives on a sun-kissed tropical island full of plenty of other vibrant flightless birds. And while all of his friends and neighbours seem to be enjoying life, he is having a far less enjoyable time. He's just extremely quick to anger, very slow to forgive and struggles to be friendly to just about anyone. Thus, he is forced to undergo anger management therapy to control his emotions before his hostility really gets out of hand. On attending his first group session, he meets the fast-talking faster-moving Chuck and the shy but quick to explode Bomb and together they attempt to conquer their stress. But upon the arrival of some suspicious looking pigs led by Leonard, Red and his new friends are the only ones who seem to be suspicious of their unlikely visitors.
