Just when I think Aldos Jones — the talented editor behind the hilarious "Weird Trailer" series — couldn't possibly top himself, he unleashes this side-splitting new video: "Eddie Murphy and the Beast."
By expertly inserting footage and using audio from Trading Places (1983), Beverly Hills Cop (1984), Coming to America (1988), The Nutty Professor (1996), Bowfinger (1999), Jones makes it appear as though Emma Watson's Belle is falling in love with the 55-year-old SNL alum. Perhaps, her love will lift his box office curse before it becomes permanent.
Beauty and the Beast is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within. The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Plumette, the feather duster; six-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald as Madame Garderobe, the wardrobe; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.
Beauty and the Beast will be released in U.S. theaters on March 17, 2017.
