6 'Cinderella' Clips Feature Richard Madden & Lily James

19 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ella (Lily James) meets the dashing prince Kit (Richard Madden) in the first of six new clips from Disney's Cinderella. The second clip shows how Ella suddenly became Cinderella, thanks to the "clever" observations of her stepsisters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera), while her stepmother (Cate Blanchett) denies her a place at the table. We also see Ella's first meeting with Anastasia and Drisella, Kit telling Captain (Nonso Anozie) that he can't stop thinking about Ella, Kit and Ella's dance at the ball, and the Fairy Godmother (Helena Bonham Carter) telling Ella that the spell will be broken at midnight.

When Ella's father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family. Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, »

Cinderella Movie Review

Title: Cinderella  Director: Kenneth Branagh Starring: Lily James, Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham-Carter, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Derek Jacobi, Stellan Skarsgard.  ‘Cinderella’ is the romantic story that has been most adapted on screen, from the fairytale animated version to all the contemporary “happily ever afters” that occur when the wretched girl meets the charming established boy. The most prominent Shakespearean director of our times, who has also tested successfully the direction of Marvel flicks (Thor) – Kenneth Branagh – directs the Disney action movie starring Lily James as Cinderella and Richard Madden as Prince Charming. But the real deal are the collateral actors: the sophisticated Cate Blanchett as the  [ Read More ]

20 Actors Who Could Be Real Life Disney Characters

20 February 2015 12:58 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros./Disney

Many Disney adaptations have already tried placing actors in the roles of live action counterparts, but they haven’t always been on the money. Angelina Jolie did a remarkable job stepping into Maleficent’s cloak, but Julia Roberts as Mirror Mirror’s Queen or Helena Bonham-Carter as Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother? Not so much.

It seems that Disney’s Maleficent has triggered production on an influx of live action Disney classics that will soon be seen on the silver screen. Given that 2014’s Sleeping Beauty adaptation has set the bar rather high for those yet to come, it has never been more important to get the casting spot on.

Into The Woods chose Anna Kendrick to play Cinderella, whereas Kenneth Branagh’s upcoming feature thinks Lily James a better fit for the princess. But perhaps the young and vibrant Jennifer Lawrence deserves the glass slipper?

Dr. Who fans—or fans of the hunky Matt Smith, really—prepare to be heartbroken. He and Lily James have made their first official appearance as a couple during the Milan premiere of Cinderella Wednesday, in which James plays the titular character. Co-star Richard Madden and director Kenneth Branagh also joined the 25-year-old actress in addition to her 32-year-old boyfriend. The couple glowed as they posed for pics on the carpet. She wore a grin that spanned her whole face while he looked on at her adoringly. Can you say "swoon"? Wearing an Erdem dress with Jimmy Choo shoes, James looked just as magical as Cinderella does at the ball. Smith's low-key romance with the Downton Abbey »

Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella offers 'modern twist'

16 February 2015 8:00 AM, PST | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Sir Kenneth Branagh was determined his retelling of 'Cinderella' was relevant to a modern audience. The 54-year-old director confessed his live-action version of the classic fairytale - which stars Lily James and Richard Madden - needed to be markedly different from the original animated version. He told The Guardian newspaper: ''I did want to make a film that was about courage and about kindness and about a psychological modernity in the middle of this traditional story. ''The Cinderella myth continues to capture our imaginations.'' Sir Kenneth explained that although he's more used to directing plays written by William Shakespeare, he sees similarities between those stories and 'Cinderella' . He shared: ''We have the line Cinderella is told by her mother: 'Have courage and be kind'; some people thought it seemed trite, but I was reminding them of King Lear when Edgar says 'Have patience and endure' at the »

Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella a 'less sexist' retelling of the fairy tale

15 February 2015 7:17 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kenneth Branagh has said that it was his aim to update Cinderella with his new retelling of the fairy tale.

The director, who debuted his live-action version at the Berlin Film Festival this weekend, explained that he wanted to make the story relevant to a modern audience.

Speaking to press including The Guardian, Branagh said: "I did want to make a film that was about courage and about kindness and about a psychological modernity in the middle of this traditional story.

"The Cinderella myth continues to capture our imaginations."

Richard Madden, who plays Prince Charming in the film, added that Branagh's film sees Cinderella and the Prince meeting on a more level playing field.

"The original animated version was much more about this boy who comes to save the day and this version is so not like that," he said.

Kenneth Branagh debuts updated, non-sexist Cinderella in Berlin film festival

14 February 2015 9:31 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The new live-action version of the traditional fairytale, which stars Lily James, has Cinders and Prince Charming ‘meeting on a level playing field’

A visually-opulent retelling of Cinderella by British director Kenneth Branagh has wowed its first audience at the Berlin film festival for its fresh approach to the centuries’ old fairytale. Starring Lily James (better known as Lady Rose from Downton Abbey) as Cinderella and Richard Madden (Robb Stark from Game of Thrones) as her Prince Charming, the film which had its world premiere in Berlin on Friday was praised for raising the otherwise gloomy tone of the festival. Berlin, renowned for its social-realist timbre, received a huge dose of Technicolour optimism from Branagh’s picture.

Branagh said his challenge had been to make the classic fairytale relevant to modern times. “I did want to make a film that was about courage and about kindness and about a psychological »

Berlin 2015: 'Cinderella' review

14 February 2015 1:13 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ Courage and kindness (and perhaps a little magic for good measure) are the cornerstones of Kenneth Branagh's sweet retelling of Cinderella (2015), a benevolent yet paradoxically cravenness reimagining of Charles Perrault's classic fairytale. A live-action Disney production starring Cate Blanchett, Lily James and Richard Madden, its safe to assume there are no evil stepsisters getting their eyes pecked out by birds here, yet there does remain something rather vexing about the easily digestible perpetuation or archaic gender norms in this enjoyably blithe, yet problematic celebration of beauty and hetronormative behaviour. The iconic Disney ident seamlessly flows straight into Cinderella's storybook exposition.

Berlin Film Review: ‘Cinderella’

13 February 2015 1:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In Disney’s new live-action “Cinderella,” four mice are ballooned into elegant white horses, two lizards are forced to serve as makeshift footmen, and an oblivious old goose gets zapped into driving a pumpkin carriage. But as the American Humane Assn. can attest, no animals were harmed in the making of this delightful if overly safe update of the gold-standard toon classic. More importantly, the underlying property emerges untarnished, as director Kenneth Branagh reverently reimagines Charles Perrault’s classic fairy tale for a new generation the world over, spelling countless opportunities to exploit fresh interest in the story throughout the Disney universe.

The latest in a trend to rework the most precious treasures in the Mouse House vault, “Cinderella” is by far the studio’s most calculated retelling yet, to the extent that those who know the toon by heart may find Chris Weitz’s serviceable script a wee bit dull. »

'Cinderella': Berlin Review

13 February 2015 1:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The color, vibrancy and unabashedly romantic heart explode off the screen in Cinderella. Directed by Kenneth Branagh with obvious affection for the 1950 Disney animated classic, the studio's opulent update is enhanced by sumptuous physical craftsmanship as well as the limitless possibilities of what CG technology can achieve. Screenwriter Chris Weitz embraces both the magic and the humanity of the classic fairy tale. He underlines the virtues of kindness and courage in a heroine right out of the pages of a traditional storybook, who gradually reveals the qualities of a self-possessed modern girl. Girls, of course, will be the

Berlin Review: 'Cinderella' Directed By Kenneth Branagh, Starring Lily James, Richard Madden & Cate Blanchett

13 February 2015 1:00 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

A fairytale so deeply embedded in the collective unconscious that it has given its name to a whole category of stories, the Cinderella myth has been cinematically retold, reimagined, recreated and riffed upon countless times. In fact, recently it has felt like the only thing you can do with such a cornball story is reimagine it, to make it relevant to a modern audience, and to address its fundamentally regressive gender politics. But now, tumbling sparkly-eyed into this world of irony, reappropriation and po-mo deconstruction, comes Kenneth Branagh's "Cinderella" a straight-up retelling of the tale for Disney. With no sheen of reflexivity, and no in-jokey admission of its hokiness to hide behind, can this non-ironic un-re-invention possibly work? Actually, yes it can, and does surprisingly well, by approaching the story with a sincerity and sweetness that defy cynicism, and by casting Cate Blanchett. Fairytales are Disney's bread and butter, »

Cate Blanchett Does Her Best Evil Stepmother Stare, Plus 3 More Highlights From Cinderella's Berlin Press Junket

13 February 2015 11:40 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

If looks could kill! Cate Blanchett channeled Lady Tremaine when she decided to glare at reporters during the Berlin Film Festival Friday afternoon. Ok, so the wide-eyed gaze wasn't her most convincing look—but who cares?! It's not often that the 45-year-old Oscar winner gets to be so wickedly campy with one of her characters. Ahead of the film's first premiere in Germany, the Givenchy-clad actress attended a Cinderella press junket with director Kenneth Branagh; co-stars Helena Bonham Carter, Lily James, Richard Madden and Stellan Skärsgard; costume designer Sandy Powell; and producers David Barron and Alli Shearmur.

Cinderella is now only a month away so this could very well be the final trailer for the live-action Kenneth Branagh directed retelling of the classic fairytale.

Watch: 4 Clips & Lots Of New Pics From 'Cinderella' Fit Like A Glass Slipper

12 February 2015 1:05 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While "Fifty Shades Of Grey" is perhaps the unlikeliest movie to screen at this year's Berlin International Film Festival, it's not the only non-cinephile, mainstream-attracting flick unspooling. Disney is unveiling "Cinderella" at the fest, and perhaps in anticipation of the reviews that will drop shortly, they are getting ahead of the game with a batch of new clips and images for the live action fairy tale. Kenneth Branagh directs this latest iteration of the story, which finds Lily James working her knuckles to the bone under mean ol' Cate Blanchett. But traditionally handsome prince Richard Madden awaits. So too does a destiny involving a glass slipper, and we all know how this turns out. The only question is whether we needed a CGI enhanced version of "Cinderella," when the classic 1950 flick is just fine. "Cinderella" arrives on March 13th. Check out three clips below, another one over at EW, plus a plethora of new pics. »
