The Ladies of Downton Abbey Stun on the Cover of Harper's Bazaar in Three Gorgeous Gowns: Pick Your Fave!

3 July 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We're not surprised to see that Laura Carmichael, Michelle Dockery and Lily James each know how to wear a dress. The three British beauties slay week after week on their highly addictive, highly luxurious, highly popular BBC show (which we're dying to have back). But we have yet to see this trio in such similarly enchanting ensembles (because Lady Edith always gets the wardrobe shaft). Now with all things equal, which lady of the Grantham family group looks most divine in her Harper's Bazaar cover moment? First up is Lady Edith in a lovely gold creation. The lace is impeccable but it's the high neckline and long sleeves that we love most about this look, which make the star gorgeously long and »

These Celebrities Would Make Perfect Real-Life Disney Princesses

5 June 2014 5:04 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

When we first heard about Disney's plans to make a live-action Beauty and the Beast with the help of Twilight director Bill Condon, we were so excited. And more importantly, we were dying to find out who would play Belle. Sure, we've already seen Emilie de Ravin as Belle on Once Upon a Time, and Lily James is set to star in the live-action Cinderella. And, of course, we've already seen Elle Fanning as Aurora in Maleficent. Even so, we still can't help but dream up our own casting. Keep scrolling to see who would make a great live-action Belle and who we'd pick for all the other Disney princesses, too. »

Disney taps Bill Condon to direct a live-action 'Beauty and the Beast'

4 June 2014 4:44 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

A live-action Alice in Wonderland worked. So did a re-imagining of Oz: The Great and Powerful.

So, on the heels of Maleficent’s magnificent box office debut, Disney is set to go forward with another live-action take on one of their animated classics. This time, it’s Beauty and the Beast, and Dreamgirls helmer Bill Condon is set to direct, sources confirm to EW.

It’s a tale as old as time.

Disney adapted the tale of the bookish girl forced to live with a mysterious beast in their 1991 animated classic, which Maleficent scribe Linda Woolverton wrote. But Evan Spiliotopoulos »

Cinderella Leaves Her Glass Slipper Behind in the First Trailer

15 May 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | kidspickflicks | See recent kidspickflicks news »

While Maleficent is ready to storm theaters this month, we have a feeling things are going to be a bit tamer in 2015. Cinderella is Disney's next big live-action adventure, and today we got our first look!

Okay, so it's not much, but if there's one thing that we wanted to see, it would definitely be the iconic glass slipper. It sparkles with pure elegance, and to top things off with a beautiful butterfly is just perfect!

Lily James is set to star in the title role, while Helena Bonham Carter and Hayley Atwell will be performing key supporting characters.

If Maleficent and Cinderella are just the beginning of a new trend of live-action fairy tales, then we are 100% on board! Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!

Disney have sent over the first teaser and poster for their forthcoming Cinderella, and while it gives very little away it certainly has a classic feel about it.

The Cinderella Teaser Trailer and Poster Is All About The Slipper

15 May 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fans of Disney’s classic fairy tales may want to keep their expectations minimal for the first trailer and poster of Kenneth Branagh’s live-action adaptation of Cinderella. Although the film has a terrific ensemble, with Downton Abbey‘s Lily James anchoring the project in the title role, there is real footage or any images shown. Instead, this teaser material displays three things: the March release month, the Disney logo and that iconic glass shoe. There is not even a title, although the slipper is probably enough of a hint to clue in fans of the Disney princess.

The trailer is sparkling, showing prisms of reflections off of the slipper as the camera circles around it and then zooms out to reveal the high-heeled shoe in its glass form. Then, a butterfly rests on the toe. It is an appropriately elegant teaser and the blue hues are also there to »

Disney Releases An Unexciting Teaser Poster and Trailer for Cinderella

15 May 2014 11:27 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Disney's live action adaptation of their own classic Cinderella story isn't hitting theaters until next March, but they're getting a jump on the film's promotion.  Today they've released a teaser trailer and poster for the upcoming film...though they aren't very exciting to look at...

Okay, I know it's important to remind fans of a movie that's coming out, but when you really have nothing to show, the marketing just seems kind of lazy.  Case in point, is this new "trailer" for Cinderella.  It's bascially a motion version of the new poster they also released today.  If you knew nothing of the Cinderella story, it'd be safe to assume that this film is about a shoe...and nothing else:

‘Cinderella’ Trailer and Poster Tease Disney’s Live-Action Retelling

15 May 2014 10:39 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Cinderella will be the 2015 installment in Walt Disney Pictures’ contemporary series of live-action features that re-imagine iconic fairy tales. The trend began with Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, followed by Sam Raimi’s Oz the Great and Powerful, and continues this month with Maleficent, directed by Robert Stromberg (two time Oscar-winning producer designer on Alice and Oz). In keeping with that practice, Cinderella also features an accomplished filmmaker at the helm, in the shape of five-time Oscar-nominated actor/director, Kenneth Branagh.

Branagh’s Cinderella features a cast of accomplished screen veterans and young stars on the rise alike, similar to the aforementioned Disney films. We have Downton Abbey‘s Lily James as “Ella”, Richard Madden (Game of Thrones) as Prince “Charming” Kit, Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett (The Hobbit trilogy) as Ella’s cruel stepmother, and Helena Bonham Carter (a costar in ...
