    In perhaps the most horrifying moment in "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri," Sam Rockwell's brutish cop casually beats the pulp out of a local advertising impresario before tossing him through a second-story window.

    5 weird Disney films we never got to see

    Here are five fascinatingly different versions of famous Disney movies that almost came to pass, only to be consigned to the idea bin of history. Disney had been trying to make a version of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale ‘The Snow Queen’ since the late 1930s, but every attempt had run aground. In 2008, the project was revived again and even had some cast – ‘Will & Grace’ star Megan Mullally was onboard as Elsa (then a flat-out villain) and Josh Gad, who did eventually play snowman Olaf in the finished film.

    Rogue One: Are Chirrut and Baze Star Wars's first same-sex couple?

    ‘Rogue One’ is unlike any other ‘Star Wars’ film that’s come before for many reasons, but one of the most exciting is the diversity of its cast. From its female lead, to its international roster of actors from all around the world, it’s clear the franchise has come leaps and bounds from the original trilogy with its sole non-white character – Billy Dee Williams’ Lando Calrissian. Beyond the characters’ ethnic backgrounds though, same-sex couples are still apparently absent from the ‘Star Wars’ movie universe… or are they?

    Wonder Woman binned as UN honorary ambassador following protests

    Wonder Woman is no longer an honorary ambassador at the United Nations, following protests. It was announced in October that the veteran DC Comics character was to be used as part of an ’empowerment campaign’ for women and girls in 2017. “Although the original creators may have intended Wonder Woman to represent a strong and independent ‘warrior’ woman with a feminist message, the reality is that the character’s current iteration is that of a large breasted, white woman of impossible proportions,” the petition read.

    Miles Teller on his Bleed For This regime: 'I would’ve choked someone out for a doughnut'

    To play the middleweight champ who broke his neck in a car accident at the height of his powers in the 1980s, Teller says he had to lose 20lbs and 13% body fat over a 7-8 month period simply to “look like a boxer”, and that was just the start of it he admits. On the flip side of Teller’s startling transformation is co-star Aaron Eckhart’s weight swing the other way. The usually trim and handsome ‘The Dark Knight’ star shaved his head and GAINED 40lbs to play Vinny’s trainer Kevin Rooney, a feat perhaps even more difficult than Teller’s because he had to lose it again instantly for his next role.

    Working with Clint is, as you might expect, a bit intimidating, says Tom Hanks. Hanks was under Eastwood’s directorial gaze for the movie ‘Sully’, in which he played feted pilot Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger, who safely landed his plane on the Hudson River in 2009 after it hit a flock of geese, saving the lives of all 155 passengers. Speaking on tonight’s ‘Graham Norton Show’, Hanks said: “You certainly don’t want one of those Eastwood looks.

    Much like her ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ co-star Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot won over her detractors with her performance as Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder’s divisive superhero face-off movie. As such, hopes are high that Gadot will really come into her own when she takes the spotlight in the upcoming ‘Wonder Woman’ solo movie – the first big screen outing for the original super-heroine. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Gadot had one key word to describe the outfit: “Tight.

    Disney’s most conceited, muscle-bound narcissist Gaston is set to be even more musky and macho in the forthcoming live-action version of ‘Beauty and the Beast’. According to composer Alan Menken, there will be lines that were dropped from the original animation, as created by his late collaborator, the legendary lyricist and playwright Howard Ashman. “In Gaston, we had a treasure trove of lyrics that Howard [Ashman] had written that we did not put in the movie,” Menken told Entertainment Weekly.

    Fantastic Beasts fans divided over Johnny Depp casting

    It has been reported that Johnny Depp has landed a role in the second ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ film, and it’s safe to say that not all fans are happy with the news.

Over the summer, Depp was embroiled in an incredibly high-profile divorce from his ex-wife, Amber Heard, with Heard alleging that Depp had physically abused her on multiple occasions.
