Berlin Film Festival Ties On ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ International Premiere

8 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Mr Grey will see his first international audiences at the Berlin Film Festival in February. As a Berlinale Special Gala, Universal and Focus Features’ highly-anticipated Fifty Shades Of Grey will be screened one-time only on February 11 with director Sam Taylor-Johnson and stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan in attendance. Also in Berlin will be author El James, upon whose erotic mega-seller books the adaptation is based. Although it’s not a world premiere, this is the latest high-profile get for the Berlinale after it was announced last week that Terrence Malick’s Knight Of Cups will bow there in competition and Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella will play out of competition. Berlin runs February 5-15. Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Fifty Shades Of Grey starts its international rollout on February 11 and releases Stateside on February 13.

Home Alone: the best Christmas movie of all time?

18 December 2014 3:10 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Could 1990 comedy Home Alone be the best Christmas movie of all time? James lays out his argument...

Gremlins is great and Elf is ace. Bad Santa is bitchin' and The Muppets Christmas Carol is sensational, inspirational, celebrational and Muppetational. Die Hard is dead good, Miracle On 34th Street is magic and It's A Wonderful Life is truly, erm, wonderful.

None of them, though, can confidently state that they are the Best Christmas Movie of All Time. Only one film can claim that title, and that film is Home Alone, which is undoubtedly and without question the Best Christmas Movie of All Time. There's legitimate space for a debate as to whether Home Alone 2: Lost In New York deserves the prestigious label but, really, with Home Alone being the original article I think it's only right that we let it stand as number one.

There's a chance that this might be news to you, »

Kevin Macdonald, director of The Last King of Scotland, is taking part for the third time this year. He said: “What I really love about [Guiding Lights] is that I learn as much – maybe more – from the mentee »

You’ll love or loathe Disney’s ‘Cinderella’ remake after watching international trailer

16 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It’s a tale as old as time as 1950. Based on the promotional materials, Disney’s live-action remake of “Cinderella” is hitting all the right beats. Your milage may vary as to whether that makes it a flawless homage or boring retread. In the newly released International trailer, Disney shows off a bevy of new footage, including more dialogue and a longer look at heavily CGI fantasy world the characters inhabit. What do you guys think? Is this faithful remake something you’re looking forward to? Or does the saccharine sweetness make you wonder what Disney was thinking? “Cinderella,” directed by Kenneth Branagh and starring Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Richard Madden, Holliday Grainger, and Sophie McShera sweeps into theaters on March 13, 2015. »

Watch: New Trailer for Kenneth Branagh's 'Cinderella'

16 December 2014 8:56 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Even though we will be getting a version of Cinderella from Disney in Into the Woods this month, Disney found it necessary to have another Cinderella in the works to be released March 13, 2015. They also brought on Kenneth Branagh, of all people, to direct the film, and with that, the retelling of the classic fairy tale (and very popular Disney animated film from 1950) has a new trailer for you all to watch below. I have not watched this most recent trailer, but I caught an earlier one. It just looks like a live-action version of the animated film but without the songs. I understand Disney wants to exploit their most famous stories for some more cash money (it worked very well with Maleficent, money-wise not quality-wise), but could they not try something a little differentc The career of Kenneth Branagh is now becoming very odd to me. This, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, »

International Trailer For Disney’s Live-Action Cinderella Invites You To The Ball

16 December 2014 8:55 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s a special kind of Christmassy magic lurking within the latest international trailer for Cinderella, which stars Downtown Abbey‘s own Lily James as the titular heroine.

Up until now, the footage we’ve seen has helped establish the leading cast members, including the likes of Helena Bonham Carter, Cate Blanchett and Game of ThronesRichard Madden. But this most recent trailer peels back the curtain on some of the awe-inspiring visuals in Kenneth Branagh’s re-telling of the famous fairytale.

Remaining true to the Cinderella we know and love, Branagh’s rendition will see James’ out of luck and out of love domestic servant stumble upon her fairy godmother, who then grants her wish to attend the ball against the better judgement of her evil stepmother — played here by Blanchett on wicked form.

Kenneth Branagh will invite you to the ball when Cinderella makes its splendid bow on »

This trailer for Cinderella spoils even more of the film than the first one

16 December 2014 8:27 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Kenneth Branagh is a brilliant filmmaker. If you have never seen Henry V or Dead Again, you are missing out on some awesome movies. In recent years, he has switched to more mainstream directing with movies like Thor and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. Neither lives up to his prior filmography, but I still had hope for his live action take on Cinderella. When the first trailer for Cinderella debuted, I was immediately struck by the fact it shows everything about the film. Fans of the Disney »

New Cinderella International Trailer Features More Magic, Spectacle

16 December 2014 8:18 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Disney has released a new international trailer for director Kenneth Branagh’s live-action Cinderella, this time with considerably more magic.  The film finds Downton Abbey alum Lily James filling the titular role, while Cate Blanchett takes on the part of the evil stepmother and Game of ThronesRichard Madden (The King of the North!) plays Prince Charming.  The first trailer wasn’t particularly encouraging as it simply looked like a scene-by-scene recreation of the animated film, but this new international trailer shows the spectacle and wonder that Branagh brings to the story in live-action form.  I’d still really like to see the version that Mark Romanek was planning, but I imagine the audience for this kind of big, sweeping, romantic iteration will be quite large. Check out the new Cinderella trailer after the jump.  The film also stars Helena Bonham CarterHayley AtwellStellan Skarsgard, Holiday Grainger, Nonso Anozie and Sophie McShera. »

Watch: More Magic in International Trailer for Disney's 'Cinderella'

16 December 2014 7:38 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Where there is kindness, there is goodness, and where there is goodness, there is magic." We've already seen pretty much the entire retelling of Cinderella in the most recent full trailer for the new live-action adaptation from Disney and director Kenneth Branagh, but a new international trailer mixes things up with a whole new edit. Unfortunately, this trailer also shows off the greatest hits of the fairytale everybody knows, so it doesn't leave much to the imagination. However, I will say that the sets and costumes are positively gorgeous, and there's likely some technical Oscar love coming for this film eventually. Watch it! Here's the new international trailer for Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella from Disney Nz: You can still watch the most recent Us theatrical trailer for Cinderella right here. Cinderella is directed by Kenneth Branagh (Thor, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit) and written by Aline Brosh McKenna (Annie, The Devil Wears Prada »

Watch: Disney Brings The Magic In New Trailer For Live Action 'Cinderella'

16 December 2014 5:07 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

One of the more unlikely movies hitting next year's Berlin Film Festival is "Cinderella," but it does have some cinephile points going for it. Respected actor, director, and Shakespeare fan Kenneth Branagh is at the helm, and the cast includes folks like Cate Blachett (who will also be in Berlin with Terrence Malick's "Knight Of Cups"), Helena Bonham Carter, Stellan Skarsgard, and Derek Jacobi in roles. But let's face it, this is still a Disney blockbuster at the end of the day and once again, the studio is hoping a live action take on an old story will bring in the bucks, not unlike this years's "Sleeping Beauty" prequel, "Maleficent." A new international trailer has arrived for the film, and Disney has given a VFX boost to their classic animated version. However, for all the handsome production design on display, the earnest performance from lead Lily James, and Blanchett »

Cinderella: new footage lands in extended trailer

15 December 2014 11:18 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Disney's live action take on Cinderella - which will come with a new Frozen short - has a fresh international trailer right here...

Disney will have high hopes for its next live action take on a fairy story, not least given the numbers that the likes of Alice In Wonderland and Maleficent have done in recent years. For next year, director Kenneth Branagh is bringing a new take on Cinderella to the screen for the studio.

This one stars Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Hayley Atwell and Helena Bonham Carter, and we've already had a trailer or two for the movie. Still, now we have another. This is an international trailer (that's arrived via Belgium), albeit in English, and it boasts some new footage of the movie that we've not seen before.

Cinderella is set to land in March, and it's been confirmed that it will come with the Frozen Forever short film before it. »

International Trailer for Cinderella has Lots of New Footage

15 December 2014 11:05 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Disney has released an international trailer for their fantastic looking Cinderella film, and it's loaded with a ton of great new footage. If we didn't already know how this story played out, this trailer might upset some people, as it's one of those trailers that gives everything away. Like I said, though, it's nothing you probably all don't already know in terms of story, so don't worry about spoilers. I like that it sticks very closely to the original classic animated film. Director Kenneth Branagh seems to have done a great job bringing those visuals to the big screen.

The story of Cinderella follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drizella (Sophie McShera) into the family home.

Terrence Malick’s mysterious 'Knight of Cups' to debut at Berlin Film Festival

15 December 2014 7:46 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The first paparazzi photos from Terrence Malick’s "Knight of Cups" surfaced in October 2012. Featuring Christian Bale and Natalie Portman playing in the ocean, it looked as poetic and narrative-less as anyone could hope from the "Badlands" and "Tree of Life" director. Since the shoot, Malick shot a second film (set around the Austin music scene... we think) and fought a few legal battles over his "Tree of Life" IMAX companion film "Voyage of Time." So we’ll forgive him that it’s taken this long for "Knight of Cups" to actually make its way on to the theater circuit and towards an actual release date. Monday morning, the 65th Berlin Film Festival announced the first seven films to be included in its 2015 Competition program. And whaddaya know — "Knight of Cups" is on it! Starring Bale, Portman, and Cate Blanchett, the film is about… well, we’re not sure. When »
