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 Thrones’ Richard 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 Carter, Hayley Atwell, Stellan Skarsgard, Holiday Grainger, Nonso Anozie and Sophie McShera. »

The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother.

But, 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, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.”

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 »

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 »

The first seven films for the 65th Berlin Film Festival Competition program have just been announced, slightly lifting a veil of mystery on at least one title. Included in the lineup is Terrence Malick’s Knight Of Cups, which will vie for prizes in its world premiere. Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett and Natalie Portman star. Malick has been notorious for the secrecy that shrouds his projects and little has been known about Knight Of Cups other than that it deals with temptations, celebrity, and excess. The Berlin announcement hasn’t provided any more intel, but watchers have pondered when the film would make its first festival appearance, and its inclusion in the Berlinale’s first competition titles has just added an extra dimension to the proceedings as news begins to trickle out of Germany. Malick has won in Berlin before, taking the Golden Bear for 1999’s The Thin Red Line. »

Kenneth Branagh’s “Cinderella,” also starring Blanchett – plus a large cast of Lily James, Richard Madden, Stellan Skarsgard, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Derek Jacobi and Helena Bonham Carter – will play out of competition, seeing its international premiere.

Riga, Latvia — Pawel Pawlikowski’s “Ida,” which centers on a young Catholic nun in Poland who discovers her parents were Jewish and were murdered during the Nazi occupation, took the best film award at the 27th European Film Awards in Riga, Latvia.
Eric Abraham, one of the producers of the film, dedicated the award to the people whose relatives were victims of the Holocaust, which included members of his own family. He remarked on the fact that anti-semitism was again on the rise.
Pawlikowski won best director, and he and Rebecca Lenkiewicz took the screenplay prize for the black-and-white Polish-language film, which also won the People’s Choice Award, voted on by the public. The pic also took the award for its cinematographers, Lukasz Zal and Ryszard Lenczewski. Pawlikowski thanked Abraham for taking on a “difficult” director.

Leading Moroccan film producer Khadija Alami, one of the main line producers for foreign TV shoots, has purchased a plot of land near the Cla Atlas Film Studios in Ouarzazate and plans to build a mini “Skywalker Ranch,” a downsized version of George Lucas’ state-of-the-art facility near San Francisco, which will include studio and post-production facilities and production offices, specifically targeted at foreign productions.
In 2014, Alami line-produced three major TV shoots – “The Ark”, “King Tut” and “A.D. After Death” — and also Susanna White’s spy thriller “Our Kind of Traitor,” based on the John le Carré novel and starring Ewan McGregor and Stellan Skarsgard.
She is confident that the surge in Moroccan foreign shoots in 2014 will continue its upward trend in 2015 and that there will be increasing demand for studio space in Ouarzazate.
Ouarzazate, the “door to the desert,” is the preferred location for foreign shoots, given its proximity to the Sahara desert, »

Disney released a bunch of new images when the Cinderella trailer dropped a couple of weeks ago and now the studio is putting six more in the mix. Kenneth Branagh’s live-action rendition of the classic tale features Lily James in the title role and it’s a performance that’s well worth keeping an eye on. I’ve yet to give Downton Abbey a go so I’ve missed out on James’ work on that show, but next year there will be loads of opportunities to see what she’s capable of. In addition to Cinderella, she also leads the adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies as Elizabeth Bennet and there was a report claiming that she was circling Lone Scherfig’s new movie, Their Finest Hour and a Half, as well. Should Cinderella hit it big, odds are, many more projects will be added to that list. »

Following the character poster released last week that features Lily James' Cinderella alongside her charming prince Kit (Richard Madden), Walt Disney Pictures has released five new photos featuring the actress. These images show us both sides of the character, the young servant girl forced to perform several chores for her wicked stepmother (Cate Blanchett), and the glamorous belle of the ball, where she hopes to meet her prince once again, after a chance encounter in the woods. As you can see in the photos, even while performing these menial tasks, Cinderella still manages to have a smile on her face.
Despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother's dying words and to "have courage and be kind." She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods. Unaware that he is really a prince, »

For those who miss the substance and scope of films like “Lawrence of Arabia” and “The Man Who Would Be King,” Philipp Stoelzl’s “The Physician” restores one’s faith in the medium — if not necessarily one’s faith in faith. A hearty historical epic that pits intellectual progress against the stifling influence of world religions, this absorbing adaptation of Noah Gordon’s international bestseller — better known abroad, where the film has earned more than 3.5 million admissions, airing on German television in its full four-hour form — tells of a lowly English urchin who travels halfway around the globe to study under Persian thinker Ibn Sina.
Though never widely embraced in the States, Gordon’s immersive 1986 novel introduced world readers to medieval hero Rob Cole, a Christian lad so committed to advancing the sorry state of 11th-century medicine that he disguised himself as Jewish (going so far as to perform his »
