This week a few of our favorite fashionistas were on fire, and it's no wonder why: With airy statement gowns, structured midis and pastels galore, the dress-to-impress game on the red carpet proved particularly on point. First on our radar is Lucy Hale, who was a vision in sheer lace at a spring beauty launch for mark. cosmetics in West Hollywood on April 8. The star sported a picture-perfect white dress from Self-Portrait, which featured a waist-cinching black belt (all the better to go with her cap-toed Gianvito Rossi pumps). Lily James, meanwhile, dazzled at the Tokyo premiere of Cinderella on April 8 in a floor-sweeping, tiered Elie Saab Couture confection. Seriously, aside from her Los Angeles premiere look, »

Twisted Fairytales: A Cinderella Feature

4 April 2015 1:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Cinderella is certainly a childhood favourite and Kenneth Branagh’s re-telling of the classic tale is in UK cinemas now. The endearing story of young Ella, who loses her father unexpectedly, finds herself at the mercy of her stepmother and her daughters.

With a magical cast that includes the likes of Cate Blanchett, Lily James, Richard Madden, Helena Bonham Carter, Rob Brydon, Stellan Skarsgård and many other exciting faces.

As you’d expect it’s filled with glass slippers, pumpkin carriages and ugly sisters but the origins of this famous fairytale has a darker side. We’ve become accustomed to the magical stories that all end happily, but the origins of many of our favourite tales are the stuff of nightmares and not the child friendly tales we are familiar with now.

To honour the release of Cinderella we look at the origins of some of our favourite classic tales, »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies to Hit Theaters on February 19th, 2016

31 March 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Like the living dead that roam the 19th-century English countryside of its story, the movie adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has refused to die, shambling on through multiple director and lead actor changes over the past several years to finally begin filming last September. Now we know when to expect to see the living dead of Meryton, as an official release date for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has now been set for early next year.

According to Box Office Mojo, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will hit theaters on February 19th, 2016, from Sony/Screen Gems.

In the film, “the heroine, Liz Bennett (James), is pressured by her family to marry into a wealthy upper-class home but chafes at the stiff social mores of Victorian England. Instead, she feels that she should help defend the countryside against the onslaught of a horrifying zombie plague.”

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Will Munch Moviegoers’ Brains Next February

31 March 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At long last, a big-screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s gleefully silly Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, a supernatural send-up of the Jane Austen classic, is happening. Today, Screen Gems announced that the Burr Steers-directed horror-comedy will hit screens on February 19th, 2016.

The pic will follow Victorian lady Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James, of Cinderella fame) and her sisters Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote) and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse), whose attempts to combat the everyday pressures of life in their class-conscious society are complicated by the presence of cranium-craving zombies.

Lena Headey, Charles Dance, Matt Smith, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston and Sam Riley make up the stacked supporting cast.

As it stands, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is only contending with thriller Shut In in its weekend, though it’s opening one week after heavy hitters Deadpool and Zoolander 2 (plus whatever Nicholas Sparks trifle 20th Century »

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies Set for February 19, 2016

31 March 2015 9:29 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

After years of languishing in development hell, I’m still surprised that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies actually got made, let alone that it’s coming to theaters. Screen Gems has announced Burr Steers’ horror-comedy, based on the parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, will finally open on February 19, 2016. The story follows Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her sisters Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Mary (Millie Brady), Jane (Bella Heathcote), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) as they try to navigate societal pressures of the landed gentry and fend off hoards of zombies. I’m surprised the studio didn’t move the film up a week and get in that Valentine’s Day crowd.  Of course, that would put it against the heavy competition of Deadpool and Zoolander 2. Currently, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is only sharing its weekend with the thriller Shut In. The film also stars Lena Headey, Charles Dance, Matt Smith, »

'Pride & Prejudice & Zombies' Lands February 2016 Release Date

Briefly: Last fall brought us our first look at the long-gestating adaptation of Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, based on Seth Grahame-Smith's period romance novel remix of the same name. In the story, a zombie apocalypse has been ongoing for 70 years, and the Bennet sisters, Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Jane (Bella Heathcote), Elizabeth (Lily James), Mary (Millie Brady), and Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) are finally sick of it and ready to take on the undead. Now the film from Burr Steers (17 Again) has been given a release date of February 19th, 2016 from Screen Gems. It's not the best release date, but not entirely unexpected. Sam Riley and Jack Huston also star in the film, and we'll see if people show up next year. »

Disney Eyeing Live-Action Mulan

30 March 2015 1:24 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After the runaway success of its (fantastic) Cinderella adaptation, Disney is hard at work developing more live-action takes on its classic animated films. And with Beauty and the Beast already in the works with Emma Watson starring, the studio is currently mulling Mulan as its next live-action retelling.

Disney has picked up a script by writing duo Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek that centers on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, a female warrior and the focus of Disney’s 1998 animated hit. The pair don’t have any feature credits yet, but they wrote for the Know Theatre of Cincinnati and rewrote an Amazon Studios script.

Chris Bender and J.C. Spink (We’re the Millers) are taking producing roles in the project, which is on the fast track as Disney works to capitalize on Cinderella‘s success. Since opening three weeks ago, the Lily James-starring pic has earned $336.2 million worldwide. »

Disney Is Working on a Live-Action 'Mulan' Remake, Too: Report

30 March 2015 10:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's no "Bambi," but Disney may already have already set its next animated flick due for a live-action reboot.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio wants to develop a live-action version of "Mulan," its 1998 film centered around the titular ancient Chinese girl, who disguises herself as a man to take her ailing father's place in battle. Disney has already reportedly purchased a script by Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek that features the same Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, which inspired the original animated flick, THR writes.

While "Mulan"'s box office receipts were modest by Disney standards -- it pulled in around $304 million internationally -- the studio's recent success with live-action adaptations of its previous flicks has proven irresistibly lucrative. "Cinderella," starring Lily James, has raked in $336.2 million worldwide since its bow three weeks ago, and last year's "Maleficent," featuring newly-minted Kids' Choice Award-winner Angelina Jolie, hauled in a whopping $758.4 million. »
