Last night on Revenge we saw Victoria and Conrad remarry, but there were some complications, and Emily and Amanda tried to throw Mason Treadwell off their scent. Check out our Revenge recap to learn more.

Though the focus of the episode is mostly on Victoria and Conrad’s wedding, everything is set into motion with Emily and Amanda trying to throw Mason off their scent. Emily crafts a convincing story about having the burn scar on her back removed, which Mason takes from Amanda because Amanda also feeds him information about Gordon Murphy.

Mason, the investigative journalist and media hound that he is, discovers Gordon dead in his apartment, with one of Conrad’s cufflinks left behind. All of which was Emily’s doing. Mason calls the police, but then he calls Victoria to let her know that her husband might be spending their wedding night in jail. Victoria seems pretty pleased with the events unfolding.

So Victoria and Conrad prepare for their nuptials, and Conrad gives Victoria the classic pre-wedding gift of her very own handgun. We wonder when that will come into play again.

The ceremony goes off without a hitch while Treadwell and the police search the Graysons’ house for evidence against Conrad (which Emily made sure was there), and everyone is celebrating at Victoria and Conrad’s reception.

Aiden watches Emily
 

Emily gets an invite through Aiden, and Nolan and Padma also make the list. Padma talks to Daniel and tries to convince him that NolCorp doesn’t need the David Clarke records after all, and Daniel had discovered earlier that they were missing from Grayson Global’s system. Nolan later warns Padma that she’s poked a hornet’s nest that’s out of her league.

With all the dancing taking place, Daniel gets a hint from his mother that he might need to lead Grayson Global sooner than later, and it also gives Emily and Daniel a little alone time. Daniel reminisces about whether or not they could have made it work, but the potentially romantic moment is interrupted by the cops.

We liked Nolan’s reference to this move on Emily’s part as a “revenge all-star opportunity.”

Conrad is arrested
 

Conrad is arrested, and he thinks Victoria has something to do with it. She didn’t plan the arrest, but she did forget to mention that he’s being framed for Gordon’s murder. While in jail, Conrad gets a visit from Helen of Americon Initiative, and he agrees to an unknown favor in return for springing him from jail.

Kara Clarke is also doing her part to creep out Victoria, and it seems like she’ll be causing some problems in the future. She kept sneaking up on Victoria in her bedroom, and now Kara blames the Graysons for her husband’s (Gordon’s) murder. Victoria better watch her back with this one.

The youngest Grayson, Charlotte, decides not to attend her parents’ wedding, and instead helps Declan with the reopening of Jack’s bar. Things seem to be going well for Jack under Kenny’s ownership, even though the bar was sold under questionable terms. Maybe Kenny really does just want to own a bar. We’re still keeping an eye on him though.

Jack shares a nice moment with Kara Clarke during the opening ceremony, and it helps him to realize what he really wants. After creating a romantic scene for Amanda on the boat (the Amanda), Jack proposes and Amanda says yes.

We have to admit, they are adorable together, but the happiness is bound to get complicated because we think Amanda will want to reveal her true identity to Jack.

We’re also digging Jack’s new haircut.

Mason Treadwell still seems to be searching for answers, and after Victoria calls Emily a “juvie girl who cleaned up nicely,” Mason starts to connect the dots. What will he do with this information? We’re also still confused how helping frame Conrad is “the beginning of the end” for Mason, as Emily put it earlier.

Mason Treadwell
 

We just hope she can get Mason out of the picture before he reveals her whole scheme.

Aiden and Emily also share a romantic moment toward the end of the episode, which included wine and a fire, but Emily continues to push Aiden away. He says he won’t give up on her, and that she has to trust him, but we wonder if he could be messing with her.

We hope not, because we really like Aiden. He’s a good match for Emily.

Our Revenge recap covered a lot from last night’s episode, “Illusion,” but our most pressing question still deals with Emily’s identity.

Will Mason reveal Emily’s entire revenge plot?

The upcoming 25th anniversary edition of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast includes a couple of first looks at next year’s live-action adaptation.

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been a quarter of a century since the animated Beauty and the Beast hit movie theaters. To celebrate the occasion Disney is putting out an anniversary edition, and its special features section includes a treat: Our first look at Cogsworth and Lumière in the live-action installment, as well as a glimpse of a scene within Gaston’s tavern.

As confirmed by producer Jack Morrissey on Facebook, this photo of Cogsworth (played by Ian McKellen) and Lumière (Ewan McGregor) is concept art, but it gives us a sense of the style that director Bill Condon is shooting for:

While it’s nice to finally see a glimpse of a couple of the characters, a big question remains unanswered: How will these objects look once they have faces on them? (Cogsworth’s face might be hinted at in the center of the clock.)

Also on the Beauty and the Beast 25th Anniversary Edition is a shot from the the “Gaston” musical number. From left to right we see Alexis Loizon as Stanley, Josh Gad as LeFou (just over Gaston’s shoulder), and Luke Evans (with his back to the camera) as Gaston.

Update: And here’s another look at the movie, courtesy of this person on Twitter — this time we get to see Dan Stevens as human Beast!

We’ll be curious to get our hands on the anniversary edition in September, because we expect we’ll see more from the new movie than the two stills above.

Disney released the first trailer for the live-action Beauty and the Beast in May. It was very much a teaser trailer, as it didn’t provide any looks at the characters — except Belle (Emma Watson), appearing through the glass casing protecting the film’s iconic rose.

In fact, the trailer’s first looks at the various settings (Namely the Beast’s castle) fell in line with the visual style we see in the above concept art.

Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens hit theaters March 17, 2017.

Apple — always one to push the boundaries by simplifying their products as much as possible — is reportedly looking to remove the all-important Home button in next year’s new iPhone.

Apple loves making their products as simple as possible. The iPod was a success because of how clean it looked compared to other MP3 players. With Apple TV, Steve Jobs bragged about how few buttons the device’s remote had.

But since 2007, every new iPhone has had the same number of physical buttons, switches, and ports: A ringer switch, a lock button, volume up/down buttons, a USB port, and a headphone jack.

Apple — always one to push the boundaries by simplifying their products as much as possible — is reportedly looking to remove the all-important Home button in next year’s new iPhone.

Apple loves making their products as simple as possible. The iPod was a success because of how clean it looked compared to other MP3 players. With Apple TV, Steve Jobs bragged about how few buttons the device’s remote had.

But since 2007, every new iPhone has had the same number of physical buttons, switches, and ports: A ringer switch, a lock button, volume up/down buttons, a USB port, and a headphone jack.

That changes next month, when Apple is expected to announce that the iPhone 7 will be lacking a headphone jack. Instead, users will be listening to music via the Lightning port (which you currently use to charge and sync your iPhone).

And for 2017, Apple will reportedly go one step further by removing the Home button.

Ah, the Home button. It’s always been there for us — it’s our captain for navigating the iPhone. We use it to switch between apps, we use it to get to our Home screen, we use it to summon Siri, and we use it to read our finger print. Back in the “old days,” we used it to force quit apps when they froze on us.

In a new report, Bloomberg says Apple is planning to remove the Home button for the 2017 iPhone, which will presumably be called iPhone 7s. It’s billed as a “major redesign of the iPhone for 2017 that focuses more heavily on the display.”

Previous rumor mill reports have suggested that Apple will ditch the Home button in order to decrease the size of the top top and bottom bezels, thereby making the phone not as tall, or using the freed up space to add more screen.

Here’s a mock up of what that could look like, via TapSmart:

What remains unclear is how users will be able to unlock and navigate their iPhone without the Home button. Reports have suggested that the whole screen will serve as a TouchID surface and a Home button (using the 3D Touch feature Apple launched last year).

Interestingly, next month’s release of iOS 10 will introduce a new way to unlock your iPhone: You’ll have to press down on the Home button to activate an unlocking. Previously, all you had to do was rest your finger on the Home button while your lock screen was awake.

Disney is making another live-action movie, and this time it’s James and the Giant Peach, to be developed by Director Sam Mendes.

To refresh your memory, James and the Giant Peach is the terrifying delightful children’s movie directed by Henry Selick and based off of the Roald Dahl story. It features nightmare-inducing adorable stop-motion animated bugs that helped James float away from his mean aunts in a — you guessed it — giant peach.

The original film was an interesting mix of live-action characters in the beginning and at the end, with stop-motion animated sequences throughout the middle.

The original film was an interesting mix of live-action characters in the beginning and at the end, with stop-motion animated sequences throughout the middle.

Now, according to Deadline, Disney is developing an all-live-action remake of the film. Nick Hornby will write the script, while Joe Roth is in negotiations to sign on as a producer.

If Mendes’ name sounds familiar, it’s because he directed the last two James Bond features, both Skyfall and Spectre, as well as 1999’s American Beauty.

You can check out the trailer for the horrifying original film below:

As of late, Disney has been announcing live-action versions of its properties left and right, including The Nutcracker (which has a huge cast of well-known actors), The Little Mermaid (with Lin-Manuel Miranda attached to help write the music), Beauty and the Beast (starring Emma Watson), and Cruella (starring Emma Stone), among others.

With the amount of remakes — especially in the live-action department — it’s no wonder James and the giant Peach is the latest to be announced.
