"Song to Song" premiered in limited release on March 17th, 2017 and received a mixed reception from critics, with some calling it a "life-changing masterpiece", while others have said it's "incoherent, disconnected, self-interrupting, obsessed with pointless minutiae and crammed full of odd, limp stabs at profundity".

beauty-and-the-beast-2017-clips-featurettes-images-and-posters

Disney's latest live-action remake, "Beauty and the Beast" is now in theaters, so here are all the clips, featurettes, images and posters released until now.

The film is a somewhat faithful retelling of the studio's 1991 animated version of the "Tale As Old As Time", but it also adds new elements that fans should appreciate, including four new songs composed by Alan Menken, with lyrics by Tim Rice. It also sparked some controversy when it was revealed that Josh Gad's character, LeFou, is gay, prompting boycotts from several conservative groups. Russia was also very close to banning it, but ultimately chose to only increase its age classification.

The cast features Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Josh Gad, Kevin Kline, Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson, Audra McDonald and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. The film received mostly mixed reviews. While there was a lot of praise for the film's cast and lavish production, many complained that it's ultimately an unnecessary and underwhelming remake.
