You’ll love or loathe Disney’s ‘Cinderella’ remake after watching international trailer

16 December 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It’s a tale as old as time as 1950. Based on the promotional materials, Disney’s live-action remake of “Cinderella” is hitting all the right beats. Your milage may vary as to whether that makes it a flawless homage or boring retread. In the newly released International trailer, Disney shows off a bevy of new footage, including more dialogue and a longer look at heavily CGI fantasy world the characters inhabit. What do you guys think? Is this faithful remake something you’re looking forward to? Or does the saccharine sweetness make you wonder what Disney was thinking? “Cinderella,” directed by Kenneth Branagh and starring Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Richard Madden, Holliday Grainger, and Sophie McShera sweeps into theaters on March 13, 2015. »

Band Aid Challenge: The Affair's Dominic West Embraces Bob Geldof's New Charity Trend

16 December 2014 9:05 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Well, we just got over ice-bucket-challenging each other, so we'll see how this new thing takes off. Bob Geldof is attempting to launch a new charity trend amongst his celebrity friends. The challenge is pretty simple, actually: You sing Bono's line from the Band Aid 30 re-release of "Do They Know It's Christmas": "Well tonight we're reaching out and touching you." (You also donate money to Band Aid, naturally.) Geldof nominated The Affair (and yes, The Wire) actor Dominic West, Homeland's Damian Lewis, and Richard E. Grant (known variously from Doctor Who, Withnail & I and Luther). West, for his part, »

International Trailer For Disney’s Live-Action Cinderella Invites You To The Ball

16 December 2014 8:55 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s a special kind of Christmassy magic lurking within the latest international trailer for Cinderella, which stars Downtown Abbey‘s own Lily James as the titular heroine.

Up until now, the footage we’ve seen has helped establish the leading cast members, including the likes of Helena Bonham Carter, Cate Blanchett and Game of ThronesRichard Madden. But this most recent trailer peels back the curtain on some of the awe-inspiring visuals in Kenneth Branagh’s re-telling of the famous fairytale.

Remaining true to the Cinderella we know and love, Branagh’s rendition will see James’ out of luck and out of love domestic servant stumble upon her fairy godmother, who then grants her wish to attend the ball against the better judgement of her evil stepmother — played here by Blanchett on wicked form.

Kenneth Branagh will invite you to the ball when Cinderella makes its splendid bow on »

New Cinderella International Trailer Features More Magic, Spectacle

16 December 2014 8:18 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

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 ThronesRichard 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 CarterHayley AtwellStellan Skarsgard, Holiday Grainger, Nonso Anozie and Sophie McShera. »

Watch: Disney Brings The Magic In New Trailer For Live Action 'Cinderella'

16 December 2014 5:07 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

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 »

Cinderella: new footage lands in extended trailer

15 December 2014 11:18 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Disney's live action take on Cinderella - which will come with a new Frozen short - has a fresh international trailer right here...

Disney will have high hopes for its next live action take on a fairy story, not least given the numbers that the likes of Alice In Wonderland and Maleficent have done in recent years. For next year, director Kenneth Branagh is bringing a new take on Cinderella to the screen for the studio.

This one stars Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Hayley Atwell and Helena Bonham Carter, and we've already had a trailer or two for the movie. Still, now we have another. This is an international trailer (that's arrived via Belgium), albeit in English, and it boasts some new footage of the movie that we've not seen before.

Cinderella is set to land in March, and it's been confirmed that it will come with the Frozen Forever short film before it. »

International Trailer for Cinderella has Lots of New Footage

15 December 2014 11:05 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Disney has released an international trailer for their fantastic looking Cinderella film, and it's loaded with a ton of great new footage. If we didn't already know how this story played out, this trailer might upset some people, as it's one of those trailers that gives everything away. Like I said, though, it's nothing you probably all don't already know in terms of story, so don't worry about spoilers. I like that it sticks very closely to the original classic animated film. Director Kenneth Branagh seems to have done a great job bringing those visuals to the big screen.

The story of Cinderella follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother (Cate Blanchett) and her daughters Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drizella (Sophie McShera) into the family home.

Terrence Malick’s mysterious 'Knight of Cups' to debut at Berlin Film Festival

15 December 2014 7:46 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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 »

Terrence Malick’s ‘Knight Of Cups’ Among First Berlin Competition Titles

15 December 2014 6:42 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

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. »

Screen Actors Guild Awards recognize ‘Birdman’, ‘Boyhood’, ‘Modern Family’

10 December 2014 1:22 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations were revealed Wednesday morning, serving as yet another precursor on the long road to the Oscars.

In the film categories, Birdman was the big winner, scoring four nominations, including for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone, as well as the collective ensemble cast. Boyhood followed right in its footsteps with three nods for Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and another ensemble nomination.

The big surprises of the morning’s nominations started with Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler, a bubble contender in a crowded Best Actor race, Jennifer Aniston for Cake, a bubble contender in a disappointingly less crowded Best Actress race, Robert Duvall in the poorly reviewed The Judge and Naomi Watts for St. Vincent (Watts was in Birdman as well, but that must’ve slipped SAG’s minds).
