Transcript for 'Beauty and the Beast' Reboot Gets Modern-Day Twist
Time for "Pop news" and the upcomi upcoming "Beauty and the beast" making belle more than a bookworm. In this sneak peek from "Entertainment weekly" we see her covered in music boxes. Her dad next to her Maurice as you might remember in the animated version in 1991. He was the gadget maker and flash in order and it's belle's dad who is the craftsman. Belle herself is an inventor creating washing machines to give herself more time to read. Nice. I love that. Emma Watson who will play belle says the movie is creating a more meaningful back story for her character. You can see it all unfold when "Beauty and the beast" hits theaters on March 17. Beauty and brains. Isn't that great? Sort of advance our stories. Also in "Pop news" this morning, Quentin Tarantino plans to retire after hitting the ten film mark which means he has just two to go. The writer/director revealing his impending departure from Hollywood at a conference in San Diego and we know what number nine will be. "Pulp fiction" director teased it earlier this year, a project about Bonnie and Clyde set in 1930s Australia. I have to ask. Why? I think he feels he has done what he needed in this genre and I think he will continue to create but I feel like he's ready to move on in that way but I wonder what number ten will be. You know he's going out with a bang. Yes, he is. Then finally in "Pop news" this morning, some Friday celebrity real estate eye candy for you. Fashion icon Tommy Hilfiger and his wife, you guys, listen to this. Cut the price of their sprawling penthouse apartment atop new York's plaza hotel by $21 million so -- Cut it by 21 misdemeanors. It's tree now, right? No, it will still cost almost $60 million. The luxurious due flex, 5600 square feet across two floors boasting four bedroom, four bathrooms is now listed at 58.9 million. Down 21 million. The apartment features a kitchen to die for, amazing library. You can see all the pictures right there. Jaw-dropping views of central park and it's been on the market for awhile so now it's like, you know, a fire sale. Just like it. Yeah, but great taste. Hilfiger, you got great taste. That's "Pop news" this morning.
