Movie Review – Cinderella (2015)

3 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Cinderella, 2015.

Directed by Kenneth Branagh.

Starring Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Richard Madden, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Helena Bonham Carter, Hayley Atwell, Stellan Skarsgard, Ben Chaplin and Derek Jacobi.

Synopsis:

When her father unexpectedly passes away, young Ella finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother and her daughters. Never one to give up hope, Ella’s fortunes begin to change after meeting a dashing stranger.

Re-boot, Re-imagining, Re-telling, Re-make, Re-hash, regurgitation… There are a lot of “Re’s” in Hollywood lately, some of them work… (Dredd, Evil Dead, True Grit) and some of them don’t… (Spider-Man, Total Recall, any recent Tim Burton films). Unfortunately the latest uh… re-telling, I guess… Cinderella falls into the latter, but its not all bad…

We all know the story so I’m not going to bore you with the glass slipper routine, it’s just a shame that the makers of this »

Terrence Malick's Next Film With Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara & Michael Fassbender Reportedly Gets Titled

20 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

As always with the world of Terrence Malick, nothing is official until the movie is on the screen, so take this bit of news with a grain of salt. But perhaps, if anything, this news indicates that the director's next film is finished. According to fansite One Big Soul (via The Film Stage), Malick's next, music-scene movie starring Ryan Gosling, Rooney Mara, Michael Fassbender, Natalie Portman and Cate Blanchett is now titled "Weightless." The intel comes from a credit sheet belonging to Supervising Sound Editor/Re-Recording Mixer Joel Dougherty who has both "Knight Of Cups" and "Weightless," credited to Malick, listed. It should be noted that this may be a working title, and Film Nation, the producers of the film, still have it untitled on their website. Here's the official synopsis:  The film follows two intersecting love triangles. It is a story of sexual obsession and betrayal set against the music scene in Austin, »

Cate Blanchett: 5 Awesome Performances And 5 That Sucked

27 March 2015 7:01 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Disney

Cate Blanchett breaths rarefied acting air as one of the most well-respected, most-decorated and just plain best performers of this or maybe any generation. Unlike a lot of her peers, too, she’s managed to build up that reputation by picking and choosing what jobs she takes on. There’s barely any total duffers in her back catalogue. She has discerning tastes.

Which means that, on the whole, when you watch a Cate Blanchett film you’re pretty much guaranteed both a brilliant, multi-layered and believable performance, but also a decent movie to match. A film that’s deserving of her mad acting skills. Plus she’s in How to Train Your Dragon 2, which was a nice surprise.

This weekend sees the release of Disney’s live action remake of Cinderella, from Shakespearean actor/Thor director Kenneth Branagh and starring Blanchett as Lady Tremaine – better known as Cindy’s Wicked Stepmother. »

Cannes: New Movies From Pixar, Woody Allen Expected at 68th Film Festival

26 March 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There are still three weeks to go before the Cannes Film Festival unveils its official-selection lineup, but so far, the latest Pixar 3D animated extravaganza and new films from Woody Allen, Todd Haynes, Jeff Nichols, Denis Villeneuve and Arnaud Desplechin appear to be securing their positions in the event’s 68th annual edition (May 13-24).

In keeping with his longtime habit of avoiding festival accolades, Allen will likely receive an out-of-competition berth for his 45th feature, “Irrational Man,” starring Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone (who starred in the director’s “Magic in the Moonlight”). Among other U.S. fare, Cannes will get an early start on the summer blockbuster season with Disney/Pixar’s feature toon “Inside Out,” marking a second trip to the Croisette for director Pete Docter (who co-helmed with Ronaldo Del Carmen) after his “Up” opened the festival in 2009. As already announced, George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road, »

See Cinderella's Lily James sing 'A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes'

26 March 2015 11:24 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Lily James has performed her own version of the Cinderella song 'A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes'.

The actress stars as the fairy tale's lead in Kenneth Brannagh's live-action remake of the 1950 Disney classic.

James sings the song over new footage of the film ahead of its release in the UK tomorrow (Friday, March 27).

We see the put-upon Cinderella enslaved by her step-mother and step-sisters, meeting her Prince Charming and getting sent off to the ball by her Fairy Godmother.

Richard Madden stars as Prince Charming, Cate Blanchett as Lady Tremaine and Helena Bonham-Carter as the Fairy Godmother.

Madden recently revealed that when his agent approached him about the role, he thought it was an appearance in pantomime.

Cinderella is released in the UK tomorrow (Friday March 27) and is currently showing in the Us.

Watch the Cheeky Cate Blanchett Interview Everyone Is Talking About

For those misrepresenting my #CateBlanchett interview, here it is uncut https://t.co/xNtObSNgSh #IStillNeedKnowHowTheyGotThatCatOnALeash — hyla (@hyla) March 26, 2015 Source: Twitter user hyla Cate Blanchett appeared to have lost her cool during an interview with television host Jonathan Hyla, but he has since set the record straight. The actress was promoting her film Cinderella when the conversation quickly turned to beers and cats on leashes. Cate seemed annoyed at one point, saying, "That's your f*cking question? Nice to meet you," before getting up and leaving. The cringeworthy interview left everyone wondering what happened, but the host later revealed that he and Cate were just joking around. He even shared a hilarious mashup of the interview's most awkward moments and the full uncut version to show the pair's humor.

Cate Blanchett Turns Cinderella Junket Interview Into a Debaucherous Free-for-All

26 March 2015 7:48 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Only Cate Blanchett can turn a quick chat about children's tale Cinderella into one about booze and sex — "This is a family movie, what are we talking about?" Blanchett jokingly yells midway through. To be fair, she brought us here. There was a clip floating around that just included the few minutes at the end — that cat question — that called out the interviewer for "causing her to storm off." But you can see here that's not exactly how it happened. (To be fair, the interviewer did post a mash-up of the thing on his Instagram, calling it "what might have been the best worst interview I've ever done.") But it's all good! Press junkets are always the worst.  »

Cate Blanchett got surprisingly R rated during a press junket interview for her new live-action “Cinderella” movie. “Ok, serious question: How were you able to get that cat to do what you wanted to on a leash?” Australian TV host Jonathan Hyla asked. “I tried putting my girlfriend’s cat on a leash and it just never works for me.” “That’s your f–king question?” Blanchett joked. She quickly wrapped the interview: “Nice to meet you,” she said while he high-fived her as they got up.

And the Cannes line-up is…?

26 March 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.

With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.

Official teaser announcements have started to roll this week, led by the confirmation on Wednesday that George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road would premiere in an Out of Competition screening on May 14.

Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.

For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »

"That's your f**king question?" See Cate Blanchett in absurd interview

25 March 2015 11:20 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

She was meant to be promoting Disney's new live action Cinderella film, but things didn't quite go to plan for Cate Blanchett in a recent interview.

The actress was speaking to Australian talkshow The Project when things got out of hand between her and interviewer Jonathan Hyla, and it's a contender for the most absurd celebrity interview of 2015 so far - equal parts awkward, hilarious and surreal.

Rather than talking about the upcoming movie, the exchange was filled with chatter about dating, potato vodka, sex and parenting among other things (quite the combination).

When the pair actually got back on topic - yes, let's not forget this is an interview for Cinderella - Blanchett laughs off the absurdity of the question.

Cate Blanchett swears at Australian interviewer on TV show The Project – video

25 March 2015 4:36 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Cate Blanchett has sworn during an interview on Australian TV after seemingly taking issue with the line of questioning. Earlier in the interview on Channel Ten's The Project, she rebuffed Jonathan Hyla's suggestion that she seemed 'like the type of person that we should just crack open a beer' with. Blanchett responded: 'This date is not going well, I do not drink beer.' Later, his question on how she kept a cat on a leash in her new Disney film Cinderella prompted her to swear - albeit with a sly look on her face - and ask if that was really what he wanted to talk about Continue reading »

Cate Blanchett is dropping f-bombs! During a recent interview for her new movie Cinderella, the 45-year-old Aussie actress lost her cool on a reporter after he asked a silly question.

Cinderella review: A warm, fleet-footed fairytale

25 March 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Kenneth Branagh; Screenwriter: Chris Weitz; Starring: Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Richard Madden, Helena Bonham Carter, Stellan Skarsgård; Running time: 105 mins; Certificate: U

On the surface of it, Disney's decision to frontload their updated live-action Cinderella with a brand new Frozen short looks like a bad move. A large part of Frozen's appeal with critics (if not with kids) was its subversive treatment of familiar storybook tropes like "true love's kiss", where Princess Elsa's relationship with her estranged sister became the central focus and romance was an afterthought. Surely attaching Frozen Fever could only emphasise how creaky and regressive the Cinderella story now looks.

But of course, Cinderella has endured for a reason. Director Kenneth Branagh has a steady handle on both the wonder and the humanity of the story, which was originally set to be adapted by Never Let Me Go's Mark Romanek. Though an intriguing prospect, Romanek's »

Kenneth Branagh interview: Cinderella, audiences, Statham

24 March 2015 7:18 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kenneth Branagh chats to us about directing Cinderella, Cate Blanchett, Patrick Doyle and his favourite Jason Statham film.

With an opening weekend that topped $70m in the Us, Kenneth Branagh may have the hit of his movie directing career on his hands with his live action Cinderella take. It's a strong film too, that finally makes it to the UK this week. And ahead of its release, he spared us some time for a natter about it...

I think I've worked out what you're up to. I've worked out your ruse. You do Thor, Cinderella and Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit. Three different juggernauts, aimed at three different segments of the market, opening your work up to an audience that may otherwise not be familiar with it.

This is all about selling DVDs of Peter's Friends, isn't it?

[Laughs] That would be a lovely by-product.

Were you consciously looking for different audience subsets, »
