Iain Softley’s psychological thriller, Trap for Cinderella, is just a few weeks away from hitting cinemas in the UK, and what we’ve seen so far suggests it’s going to be a memorable new entry for the genre.
The first trailer was released earlier in the month, giving us an excellent first look at Softley’s upcoming return. And now Lionsgate have released the film’s first poster, with Tuppence Middleton front and centre.
Micky (Tuppence Middleton) is a fun-loving photographer, living a party lifestyle in London until a chance encounter with a childhood friend changes her world forever. The opposite to life-and-soul Micky, Do (Alexandra Roach) is a quiet bank clerk, with little by way of a social life. Yet much to the annoyance of her DJ boyfriend Jake (Aneurin Barnard), Micky is all too delighted to reacquaint herself with Do, embracing her old friend with typical gusto. »

Gay couple want baby, find surrogate with bigoted gran. It just might be funny
It is always difficult to judge an American show from its pilot episode, even though that is what it is for. Typically, the pilot for The New Normal (E4) was in a tremendous rush to set out its stall, with lots of explanation and not much characterisation. It wanted to be barbed, but at the same time it was terribly eager to please. Even if it constituted a promising start, it still made for a pretty lame first episode.
Brian and David are a gay couple looking for a surrogate to have an IVF child for them, possibly not for all the right reasons. "I want us to have baby clothes," said Brian to David, "and a baby to wear them." Their search turned up Goldie, on the run from her cheating husband in Ohio, and »
