One of the longest weeks in recent memory is finally drawing to a close. But before the weekend begins, we have a few treats to share with you here at Movie Morsels. Including a shimmering new poster for Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (courtesy of star Emma Watson), the latest trailer for Underworld: Blood Wars, the first look at King Kong in Kong: Skull Island, and lots more…
Beauty and the Beast
Emma Watson is somekind of guardian angel for the literate, as she has recently been caught hiding copies of Maya Angelou books on the New York City subway. But then there are a lot of reasons to love Emma Watson, including the actress’ reveal on Twitter of the brand-new Beauty and the Beast poster.

Underworld: Blood Wars
Even if you’ve never seen an Underworld movie and have zero interest in the Sony franchise, you might want to take a look at the latest trailer for the series’ fifth film, and the fourth to star Kate Beckinsale.

The Walking Dead‘s Negan himself, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, is paired with one of our most acclaimed actors, Anthony Hopkins, in the paranormal thriller Solace.

No less an authority than Mamoru Oshii, director of the original animated Ghost in the Shell, weighs in with his opinion of Rupert Sanders’ live-action adaptation.

Even this behind-the-scenes look makes it appear to be one of the most vibrant, visually stunning movies in recent years…
Kong: Skull Island

Finally today, a little something different… In Collateral Beauty, Will Smith plays a father dealing with the tragic death of his young daughter, whose coworkers reach out to help him by hiring three actors to play the “people” that Smith is most angry at (Love, Death, and Time) and convince him that they’re exactly who they say they are. Death is portrayed by Dame Helen Mirren, in her own exquisitely charming fashion, while Keira Knightley and Jacob Latimore play Love and Time. Michael Pena, Edward Norton, Naomie Harris, and Kate Winslet also lend support, as can be seen in the following clip…
