Directed by Kenneth Branagh
Cinderella is a refreshing callback to the unabashed costume epics of the past, when story and aesthetic held equal sway over ambitious filmmakers. Director Kenneth Branagh and his production team luxuriate in breathtaking sets, opulent costumes, and impeccable special effects while still keeping the old-fashioned story of courage and kindness at center stage. Yes, it would have been nice to see a little more cellulite and gumption from our heroine, but it’s hard to complain about a movie that so thoroughly delivers on spectacle and heart. Lush, extravagant, and painfully earnest, Disney’s Cinderella is a worthy adaptation of its classic predecessor. In fact, it’s quite wonderful.

Next week brings the arrival of Disney's new live-action telling of the classic fairytale Cinderella, and the following week will see The Divergent Series: Insurgent hitting theaters. Both films are also getting releases on the IMAX screen as the giant format aims to expand beyond their normal, giant blockbuster fare (though the latter fits more into that parameters than Cinderella). And if you're seeing either of these films at a Regal Entertainment Group IMAX theater (one of the big chains doing The Ultimate Marvel Marathon), you can get your hands on these posters during opening weekend while supplies last. Look! Here's the IMAX poster for Cinderella that you can get opening weekend at Regal theaters: Cinderella is directed by Kenneth Branagh (Thor, Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit) and written by Aline Brosh McKenna (Annie, The Devil Wears Prada) and Chris Weitz (About a Boy, Antz).

"Ragged servant girl is what you are, and that is what you will always be." A second theatrical trailer for Disney's live-action re-telling of the classic fairytale Cinderella has arrived, and much like the TV spot from earlier this week, it adds a little meat to the story we all know. It looks like there's a conspiracy in the kingdom to make sure the prince (Richard Madden) marries another for the good of the kingdom, but he just wants to follow his heart and marry Cinderella (Lily James). It looks like Cinderella is more than a damsel to be rescued as well since she stands up to her step-mother in order to protect the prince as well. Here's the latest trailer for Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella from Disney: You can still watch the most recent Us theatrical trailer for Cinderella right here.
