Great minds think alike!

It could be similar to Jon Favreau's The Jungle Book, which I enjoyed much more on second viewing at home than when I saw it at the cinema.

I haven't seen that. Is it worth a watch and have they kept the musical element ?

I don't think they need to do it but, if this year's Beauty and the Beast film is anything to go by, it will be very good.

I personally thought it was very underwhelming and thought Emma Watson a poor choice for the role of Belle.

Give me either Cocteau's or Herz's version of the famous tale any day.

Yes and, to a lesser extent, yes. The songs are shorter and much less of a feature than the (hand drawn) animated film. It doesn't make it any better or worse, just different.

Well this is looking like it'll be worth watching

I really liked Emma Watson, finding her version of the character engaging and sympathetic. I really like the Cocteau film, but haven't seen the 1978 film version of the story.

Meanwhile, on another upcoming film, this has apparently performed very badly the box office in the US, partly because the names of the two male principles have been mentioned in reports about what they did or didn't know about Harvey Weinstein. Judging it on its own merits, this trailer looks pretty damn good when some weird comedic blend of A Serious Man, Revolutionary Road and Falling Down.

I've had the BFI Cocteau film for months. It's going to be my Christmas Eve film.

I can't imagine anyone better. She made the film for me.

Star Wars: Why some US cinemas are refusing to show The Last Jedi

Disney's strict requirements for screening may leave some smaller establishments out in the cold


Star Wars: The Last Jedi may be this year's biggest release, but don't expect it to show in every single cinema.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the huge success of both Disney's Star Wars and Marvel franchises has emboldened the studio to start making more aggressive demands from cinemas, specifically when it comes to their golden ticket, The Last Jedi.

Some owners are calling the terms "the most onerous they've ever seen", with Disney requiring 65 percent of ticket sales and a stipulation that the film be screened in the largest auditorium for at least five weeks.

This is in contrast to previous requirements of 64 percent of profits and four-week runs for previous Star Wars films. If a cinema fails to uphold the deal, they'll be subject to a five percent penalty - making Disney's total cut 70 percent of profits.

The demands are unlikely to have any great effect on major multi-screen chains, but smaller cinemas, particularly in rural areas, could be facing a major issue.

A location with, for example, only two or three screens won't exactly be inclined to dedicate an entire screen to The Last Jedi for five weeks, especially with several major other releases happening in December - Jumanji and The Greatest Showman, alongside Oscar contenders The Disaster Artist and Phantom Thread.

Fingers crossed, that won't mean fans are missing out on one of the cinematic events of the year, even if they have to make a bit of a journey to get to it.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits UK cinemas 15 December.
