5 things we learned about

Luke Skywalker is the ‘emotional entry point” into Episode VIII. A longtime fan of Hamill’s enigmatic Jedi, Johnson thinks 'What’s going on with Luke Skywalker?’ is the essential question at the heart of the new film. 'I’m approaching it with a take that I hope feels honest and real and is going to be interesting to folks and make sense.’

Dan Stevens: 5 things to know about the 'Beast'

We are just days away from the highly-anticipated debut of Disney’s newest live-action film “Beauty and the Beast.” Emma Watson stars as Belle while Dan Stevens takes on the role of the Beast.

Stevens recently stopped by ABC News’ “Popcorn with Peter Travers.”

Here are 5 things we learned about Stevens

1. He learned to walk and dance on stilts for his role as the Beast

“Emma is small. She’s shorter than me. She’s a petite lady. And that extra 10 inches just accentuated the height,” Stevens said. He added that the stilts required some getting used to.

“She’s a great dancer but she was terrified of me that I was going to break her toes in these contraptions that I was wearing,” said Stevens. “Fortunately we learned the dance on the ground. As I always say to my kids, if you think you can fly, always test it taking off from the ground. So we learned it on the ground and then worked our way up to these stilts,” he said. Then they found their rhythm.

“Once we got the footwork down, the dancing on the stilts was surprisingly easy. I thought it was going to be a lot more tragic than it actually was,“ he remarked. "But once we broke through that sort of fear barrier, it was fantastic. There’s something about the waltz that we had to learn and the way that dance is designed to make you feel, this whirling ecstasy, it’s fantastic. Even on stilts.”

2. Why the prince was turned into a beast

“He’s a rich kid, the son of a billionaire, living in his tower, treating women as objects. He’s not a very nice man really,” Stevens said. “He doesn’t really understand love on a sort of elemental level. He thinks these sort of play things can come and go and it’ll be fine. He has a sense of entitlement.”

3. For the first time, the Beast gets his own special song

In many of the princess movies, the princess gets her big moment to belt out a rousing number. But this time, a special song was penned by songwriter Alan Menken for the Beast. Menken is best known for his scores for previous Disney films such as “Aladdin,” “The Little Mermaid” and “Pocahontas.” Menken also scored the animated version of “Beauty and the Beast.”

“The Beast didn’t have a song in the animated film but in the stage show he did. That song didn’t work so they wrote a new one. And it’s fantastic,” said Stevens.

Watch Josh Groban’s version of Evermore (From “Beauty and the Beast”):

4. The snowball fight scene is awesome

There’s great chemistry between Watson and Stevens. Their friendship-turned-romance in the live-action flick includes an epic snow fight.

5. Stevens may look familiar when he’s not in costume

Stevens previously starred as Matthew Crawley on "Downton Abbey.” And he’s currently playing Legion in the series, “Legion,” on the FX network.

“Beauty and the Beast” hits theaters Friday, March 17. Disney is the parent company of ABC.

BTS GAYO EP. 5

7 Things We Can Learn About BTS From Gayo Episode 5

1. It’s physically impossible for them to be normal.

they seriously have no chill. YEAH THAT’S RIGHT I’M TALKING ABOUT YOU HOBI WTF ARE YOU EVEN DOING LIKE BRUH PUT THAT SHIT AWAY.

i didn’t even realize kookie was imitating Bang PD here, THAT LITTLE–

but yeah. no chill. whatsoever. 

2. They’re great at acting out charades.

min suga is actually a god at games and somehow looks painfully adorable while doing them. actually he’s just always adorable. and causing me pain :’)

i swear he’s the cutest baby turtle in the universe and anything and everything he does is sooo lovable (except for when he spits fire cuz that shit just BURNS MY SANITY TO THE GROUND)

UGH, FOCUS.

anywho, just look at how well the hyung line acted these out. obviously for this one, they’re acting out when you got a 7% on an exam, which made you laugh hysterically in excruciating pain, and eventually led to you giving up on life.

i like to call this “The 3 Stages of Failing an Exam” by The Hyung Line. poetic, isn’t it?

and in this one, obviously the beautiful jin is graciously approving of namjoon’s stunning “contemplating about life” face. but yoongles is just laughing at the stupidity of it all like “pshh bishes we all know i’m the most attractive of us all.”

3. They’re not so great at guessing charades. 

when tae suddenly bolted up from his seat to answer, the members got so excited like “WHOA, TAE’S ACTUALLY GOT THIS WHOAAA–”

“just kidding. he don’t got this.”

jimin finds their inability to play this charades game absolutely hilarious while hobi on the other hand looks like he just wants to give up and eat a taco. 

HE’S SO DONE. someone please get him that taco STAT. BEFORE HE BECOMES PERMANENTLY HOPELESS.

4. BTS love is a beautiful, violent, speshul kind of love. 

the abuse is so real.

seriously.

jin and namjoon seemed way too happy to finally have the opportunity to exert their hyung dominance over their dongsengs. but hey, that’s one thing us fangirls have in common with them – they seem to like pain too :’)

5. They teach us how to achieve the perfect beach body. 

you can start off ambitiously hardcore like hobi and bench a pillow or two if you’re really up for the challenge 

but be sure to take a breather in between sets and go easy on yourself by lifting a yoongi to cool down.

or you can just practice your kungfu skills cuz that’s always a great work out

(side note: i can’t stop laughing at this screenshot cuz IT LOOKS LIKE KOOKIE’S KICKING HOBI IN THE FREAKIN HEAD IM CRYING)

AND BAM. VOILA. PRESTO. 

GIRL LOOK AT THAT BODY

BTS BIKINI BOD HERE I COME. 

6. They love punishments. 

“teamwork makes the dream work”? yeah okay why don’t you tell that to hobi

hobi: DID I WIN DID I WIN??

everyone else: NAW MAN YOU LOST OH DARN LOOKS LIKE IT’S PUNISHMENT TIME FOR YOU

but at least we got some adorable hobi cuteness out of this (which the bts members approved of immensely) 

i mean just look at this baby chipmunk

STORING UP FOR THE WINTER ALREADY DAW WHAT A GOOD LITTLE HOBMUNK

7. BTS stands for Biggest Trolls (ever) - Seriously. 

hobmunk says the closing ment and even goes as far as sharing his wonderfully slobbery candies with us while the rest of the members get a kick out of his oblivion

and of course that little shit park jimin can’t hold it in anymore and eventually reveals the secret to hobmunk

son, you just got TROLLED.

summary - they have negative chill. charades are hit or miss for them. it’s either tough love or no love, bruh. as real men, they always exercise plenty to stay fit . hobmunk is a master at dealing with consequences of life. 

and last but not least, they are the biggest bunch of trolls that we can’t help but love and adore. please love these trolls lots and lots ♥

Diane Keaton & Pharrell Williams

5 Things We Learned About Diane Keaton

Hollywood icon Diane Keaton took to our stage last night to read from her latest book, Let’s Just Say It Wasn’t Pretty. The always pretty and stylish actress also took questions from the audience, and wasn’t afraid to get saucy with the crowd. Here are 5 things we learned from the Academy Award winner.

  • Keaton claims Pharrell stole her hat. The actress asserted that his now famous cap that showed up at the Oscars and Grammys was no doubt inspired by her own taste in chapeaus.
  • She loved getting slapped around by Al Pacino in The Godfather. Remember that scene in Part II? “He really slapped me! It was amazing and it really worked. I loved it.”
  • The no. 1 thing Keaton looks for in a man is a penis. Hey, that’s what she said.
  • She has photos of attractive men pinned to a wall in her home. Not surprisingly, she’s also a huge fan of Pinterest.
  • Of all her characters, the one Keaton likes the most is Erica Barry from Something’s Gotta Give.
5 things we learned about 'Carol' at NYFF

Patrick Ryan, USA TODAY12:45 a.m. EDT October 10, 2015

NEW YORK — Festival audiences can’t stop swooning over Carol.

Based on Patricia Highsmith’s 1952 novel, The Price of Salt, Carol stars Cate Blanchett as the married, poised title character and Rooney Mara as her young, diffident lesbian lover, Therese. Set in ‘50s New York and directed by Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven), the understated, lushly-shot drama debuted at the Cannes film festival in May, where Mara picked up a best actress award. Carol has since been rapturously received at the Telluride film fest last month and at the New York Film Festival on Friday night.

5 New Things We Learned About 'Supergirl'

The Supergirl panel held at CBS’s Television Critics Association presentation on Monday yielded a number of new details about the highly anticipated new series. Here are five of them — plus a new promo.

1. No crossovers planned with CW shows like The Flash and Arrow… yet. CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler said “We have not had conversations about [storyline] crossovers but we are doing crossover promotions” — i.e., ads for Supergirl airing on CBS’s sister network The CW and vice versa. 

2. More comics characters are coming! Red Tornado, Gen. Sam Lane, and the Kryptonian villain Non (from the Superman II movie) are just some of the comics and movies characters who will arrive during the first nine episodes, say producers.

3. She may be super, but she’s still human. Producer Greg Berlanti, asked for the secret of how he’s been so successful in translating Arrow and The Flash to the small screen, said the key for him is “to remove the superpowers from it and see what the human stakes are in the drama,” adding that “the superpowers are there to demonstrate things about the hero’s character.”

4. She may be super, but she’s not invincible. Producer Geoff Johns reminded the critics that Supergirl is not indestructible: “There are a lot of things besides Kryptonite that can take her down.”

5. The original Superman movies had a huge influence on Supergirl. “The movies had a charm and believability and also an epic quality. [These qualities are] imprinted on our brains that that’s how you capture superheroes on a screen,” said Berlanti of the Richard Donner films. He added that he finds “a relatability” to star Melissa Benoist when she’s in her civilian Kara identity: “When she hesitates and phumphers like Clark Kent did, it’s the most evocative [of that kind of secret-identity character] since Christopher Reeve.”
