Thanks Josh Gad for making our day! Yes the Frozen actor has just put a mid-week smile on many a face as he’s shared the first cast picture from the upcoming live action remake of Beauty and the Beast.

Great... Another Disney classic is being changed into a live-action movie. Barely a week goes by in which we're not reporting yet another animation is being revamped. We're already hearing reports that production of Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens, is underway and others that Dumbo, Winnie The Pooh, The Jungle Book and Mulan are all being made into live-action films. It may not be original but, if we look at $758 million Maleficent raked in and Cinderella's recent success, it is hugely profitable.

This is how Emma Watson marked Women's Day.
As a feminist, activist and UN collaborator, Emma Watson was sure to do something special to commemorate Women's Day - like, say, a live Q&A on Facebook on the topic of ladies, equality and feminism.

Emma Watson believes men and women should stand together for equality.
Much like the He for She campaign, launched by Watson and the UN last year, her Q&A session also highlighted the need for a unified movement of women and men to combat gender discrimination. Rigid gender roles are also imposed on men, Watson explained, and addressing them is an important step toward creating a world in which women are equal.
The 24-year-old actress recently addressed the immediate backlash she received from internet trolls after her speech about gender equality in September.

Emma Watson recently graduated from Brown University. What are some other celebs that have pursued a higher education?
It’s no Hogwarts, but it just might be the next best thing. Actress Emma Watson, best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the hit franchise Harry Potter, recently graduated from the Ivy League school Brown University for a degree in English literature. Enrolling in the school in 2009, the degree had been a work in progress as Watson took breaks in between to finish off the remaining Harry Potter films, and she even worked on her schooling abroad as she studied at Oxford University in England, as well. You’d think adapting to the college life could be difficult for someone with such a star status, but Watson said it was pretty easy adjusting. "I've never even been asked for an autograph on campus," she said in an interview in 2013. "I threw a party for nearly 100 students and not a single person put a photo on Facebook."
Emma Watson graduated from Brown University
Watson joins the list of quite a few celebrities that have graduated from top tier schools, and it’s an admirable accomplishment whether it was done before they became famous, or after. In fact, there’s probably a ton of your favorite celebrities that you never even knew had a degree in some weird categories completely unrelated to their career choice. Either way, for these actors and musicians, they’ve proven that at one point or another, an A mark was once a more important accolade than an Oscar or a Grammy.

Darren Aronofsky's biblical epic 'Noah' has topped the box office after dividing critics.
Filmmaker Darren Aronofsky has experimented with most genres over the course of his career, from brainy freak-out ('Pi') to gritty self-discovery ('The Wrestler') by way of intense drama ('Requiem for a Dream'), personal sci-fi odyssey ('The Fountain') and psychological horror ('Black Swan'). We've learned long ago to stop expecting what he'd tackle next, but no one saw the biblical epic on his to-do list.
Russell Crowe Plays The Titular Ark-Builder In Darren Aronofsky's Biblical Epic.
Indeed, Noah isn't the usual biblical epic. Aronofsky has completely jettisoned the style of more reverential films for something much darker and more complex. It has understandably divided critics; some find it bloated and uneven, while others see something deep and provocative. But the one group that seems unsure what to make of it is America's notoriously powerful religious subculture.

Emma Watson doesn't date other famous people, nor do these other celebs from the looks of things.
Not all celebrities are part of a high profile power couple like Beyonce and Jay-Z, or Brad and Angelina. Some celebrities opt for a hint of normalcy in their personal lives and shack up with regular folk. Emma Watson has revealed that she won’t date other famous people. “I don’t date people who are famous”, the Noah actress explained. Watson is currently in a relationship with Oxford University student Matt Janney, although she did add that a dating non-famous can be tough too, “I don’t think it’s fair that, all of a sudden, intimate details of their personal life are public as a direct result of me.”
Emma Watson doesn't date other famous people
Emma Watson isn’t the only celeb to be involved with another non-famous partner. Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Barroso have been happily married since 2005. The pair met in a bar while Damon was filming Stuck on You with Greg Kinnear and they now have four daughters. “I hit the jackpot with my wife”, Damon told The Guardian. Well, ain't that nice?

Darren Aronofsky continues to ambitiously experiment with genres in this Old Testament blockbuster, but this is his first real misstep as a filmmaker, as the impressive parts simply don't add up. Still, there are flashes of genius as the epic struggle between good and evil is echoed both in the grand spectacle and within the characters themselves.
It starts with the original sin, which divides Adam and Eve's sons - brutal killer Cain and peaceful caretaker Seth - into warring factions. A few generations later, all that's left of Seth's righteous line is Noah (Russell Crowe), his wife (Jennifer Connelly) and three sons (Logan Lerman, Douglas Booth and Leo McHugh Carroll), plus an adopted daughter (Emma Watson). After he has a vision that God is planning to cleanse mankind with a flood, Noah consults his grandfather Methuselah (Anthony Hopkins) and builds an ark to save his family and all of earth's animals. He also gets help from the Watchers, rock-encrusted fallen angels who previously assisted Cain's descendant Tubal (Ray Winstone), who goes into battle mode to stop Noah.
All of this is inventively set in a post-apocalyptic landscape left in ruins after generations of fighting. And Noah is the last true believer tending to creation, refusing to eat meat (although he wears leather accessories) and ruling over his family like a tyrant. This of course creates various carefully scripted conflicts for his family over the months they're stuck in the ark. But the moralising is never as deep as it pretends to be.

For Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah,' the prophecy has been fulfilled.
Noah has swept to success in its debut weekend, having opened in the USA. Darren Aronofsky's controversial new biblical epic took a massive $44 million over the weekend, which sent the film sailing past last week's number one movie, Divergent, according to Box Office Mojo. Russell Crowe takes the titular lead in this big budget hard-hitter, starring alongside Emma Watson, Jennifer Connelly and Douglas Booth.
New Russell Crowe Epic 'Noah' Has Swept To Success In Its Opening Weekend.
It hasn't all been plain sailing for the latest movie from the Black Swan director. Noah has faced religious opposition and subsequent bans in certain Middle Eastern countries due to the fear of religious provocation. What's more, early reviewers simply weren't fussed by Aronofsky's lengthy epic, yet this negativity seems to have been turned around since more Noah reviews have flooded in, sending the movie's Rotten Tomatoes rating skywards.

To make a Hollywood movie, adaptation is needed. Especially for Noah, explains Watson.
Darren Aronofsky’s Noah has certainly been ripe for criticism. Religious groups were against it from the start, with many detractors claiming it strayed far too far from the original text. But for one of the film’s marquee stars, Emma Watson – who plays Noah’s (Russell Crowe) adopted daughter Ila – adaptation was imperative in telling the story.

"Darren does these very dark, very intense, very gritty, very real films," explained Watson to Nola.com. "And then Noah is kind of -- you see this guy with the long beard and there's the animals. ... You can't really picture it. I think it's a really original take on a genre, on a story, on an idea," she added to Nola.com.

Harry Potter fans watched Emma Watson grow up on screen, each movie that came out the cast were practically unrecognizable from their previous appearance, and before we knew it they were all grown up.

Things are looking sunnier for Darren Aronofsky's biblical epic after early hiccups.
Box office prospects are beginning to look brighter for Noah, Darren Aronofsky's new biblical epic. Opening in the USA today, the Russell Crowe-starring blockbuster's commercial success fell into doubt after several Middle Eastern countries raced to ban the Genesis story and early critics issued a collective non-committal shrug. Noah was initially rated in the low 70's on Rotten Tomatoes but this number has climbed to 77% today, indicating a rising interest in the film now that the waters have calmed.
Things Are Looking Up For 'Noah' Upon The Release Of The New Russell Crowe Film.
Aronofsky's movie has been banned in Middle Eastern countries, including The UAE, Qatar and Bahrain, because of a fear of religious provocation as the film breaks the Islamic taboo of depicting a prophet. Speaking at the Noah press call this week, Crowe branded the film's controversy "irrational" whilst co-star Emma Watson, who plays the wife of Noah's son, said she wasn't surprised by the uproar: "To be honest, I expected there to be controversy, I think all Biblical adaptations carry the weight of that because it is something that is so personal to people," she said.
