Fox AI predicts a movie's audience based on its trailer

  Fox AI predicts a movie's audience based on its trailer Modern movie trailers are already cynical exercises in attention grabbing (such as the social media-friendly burst of imagery at the start of many clips), but they might be even more calculated in the future. Researchers at 20th Century Fox have produced a deep learning system that can predict who will most likely be watching a movie based on its trailer. Thanks to training that linked hundreds of trailers to movie attendance records, the AI can draw a connection between visual elements in trailers (such as colors, faces, landscapes and lighting) and the performance of a film for certain demographics.

But Keira Knightley looks shockingly different in the brand new trailer for The Nutcracker and The Four Realms which Disney released on Wednesday. 

The actress, 33, underwent a drastic makeover for her role as the Sugar Plum Fairy, which was unveiled for the first time in the short teaser. 

The Sneaky Reason Disney Animators Gave Ariel the Mermaid Red Hair

  The Sneaky Reason Disney Animators Gave Ariel the Mermaid Red Hair Let's play some word association. If you grew up in the '90s, when you think "mermaid," you probably think of Ariel.In 1984, Daryl Hannah starred in the live-action film Splash as a mermaid named Madison who falls in love with a human man, alongside Tom Hanks. The movie was a huge success — it was so massively popular, in fact, that the Social Security Administration credits Hannah's character for popularising Madison as a baby name. Five years after the release of Splash, it was still so well-known that it was on Disney animators' minds when they made The Little Mermaid.

Keira Knightley is virtually unrecognisable in the trailer for her latest film The Nutcracker and the Four Realms . In it, she plays Sugar Plum Fairy , starring alongside Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, and Mackenzie Foy.

Tchaikovsky’s celebrated 1892 ballet renamed her Masha, or Clara, but now, in The Nutcracker and the Four Realms , a new fantasy drama in the vein of The Chronicles of Narnia that pulls from both the ballet and fairy tale, she has a name that just might stick.

Keira stars along Morgan Freeman, 81, as Drosselmeyer and Dame Helen Mirren, 73, who looked equally as unrecognisable as the antagonist Mother Ginger in the upcoming Disney flick.

For Keira's transformation, her glossy brunette locks were covered with a Marie Antoinette style wig in hues of light purple, pale pink and white piled high on her head, complete with side curls and hints of sparkly silver tinsel.

The Pirates of The Caribbean actress' full and fluffy brows had been turned into thin, heavily over-plucked eyebrows, with a garish pink eye-shadow drawing attention to her outlandish fake eyelashes. 

Her naturally glowing skin caked in heavy white powder, and Keira's picture-perfect smile was transformed with crooked lower teeth and veneers.

The young girl is led into a mysterious world by a golden thread given to her by her godfather, played by Morgan Freeman at his annual Christmas party.
