With a name to ring a dozen Hollywood bells every time it’s spoken a new film from Sofia Coppola will always bring a measure of excitement. The last film she produced was the Netflix Holiday special A Very Murray Christmas, which she directed and co-wrote with Bill Murray and Mitch Glazer. Before that she stood in the eye of the Californian fame hurricane with 2013’s The Bling Ring, which followed the languid Somewhere from 2010. Today her new film, The Beguiled, had its first trailer revealed and we’re a million miles from Tinseltown.
The film was adapted by Coppola from Thomas Cullinan 1966’s novel A Painted Devil and Don Siegel’s own cinematic adaptation of the story in 1971 (a film which shares the name The Beguiled). The stage is set in 1863, during the American Civil War, at an all-girls boarding school in Mississippi. An injured Union »

Now, though, Sofia Coppola is bringing something different to the material. She’s recruited a cast that features Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning. And the wraps are beginning to come off the new The Beguiled.
The first trailer for the film has landed, and you can get a look right here…
The Beguiled lands in UK cinemas on June 23rd in the UK. »
Entertainment Weekly have released the first batch of photos from Sofia Coppola’s upcoming The Beguiled. We also have the first trailer for adaptation of the 1966 Thomas Cullinan novel, which was previously adapted into a film in 1973.
The story follows a wounded Yankee soldier who, after finding refuge in an isolated girls’ school in the South towards the end of the war, becomes the object of the young women’s sexual fantasies. The soldier manipulates the situation for his own gratification, but when he refuses to completely comply with the girls’ wishes, they make it very difficult for him to leave.
Check out the very first photos below as well as that first teaser trailer.

Coppola's movie, the second film version of the story of a Union soldier (Colin Farrell) who charms his way into a Confederate girls boarding school, reunites the filmmaker with stars Kirsten Dunst — who portrayed the eponymous Marie Antoinette in Coppola's 2006 period drama and 1999's The Virgin Suicides — and Elle Fanning, who starred alongside Stephen Dorff in 2010's Somewhere. Oscar nominee Nicole Kidman also stars as the school's headmaster.
An earlier adaptation of the story was made in 1971 and »

Colin Farrell is under siege by a bunch of Southern belles in the first official teaser trailer for Sofia Coppola’s “The Beguiled,” a remake of the 1971 drama that starred Clint Eastwood. (Watch the new teaser above.) “The Beguiled” also stars Elle Fanning, Angourie Rice, Nicole Kidman, and Kirsten Dunst. Coppola’s 2017 version marks her third collaboration with star Kirsten Dunst. “The Beguiled” is set in a Confederate girls’ boarding school during the American Civil War, where things are turned upside down by the arrival of a wounded Union soldier, John McBurney (Colin Farrell, taking over for Eastwood). Nicole Kidman plays Martha Farnsworth, »

The teaser for Sofia Coppola's remake of The Beguiled (2017) is upon us and it is glorious if surprisingly faithful. In fact, if you watched the original 1971 movie with us during the last season of Hit Me With Your Best Shot you'll be hard pressed to spot many immediate differences beyond of course the new cast. Nicole Kidman takes the Geraldine Page role (we worship Kidman but good luck topping one of Page's juiciest star turns), Colin Farrell gets the Clint Eastwood wounded womanizing soldier part, Kiki steps in for Elizabeth Hartman, and Oona Laurence (who was so good opposite Gyllenhaal in Southpaw) plays the Pamela Ferdin role.
If you haven't yet seen the trailer or would like to watch it again (I'm on round 5) it's after the jump along with a short "Yes No Maybe So" »

"If you could have anything in the world, what would it be?" "To be taken far away from here..." Focus Features has unveiled the teaser trailer for Sofia Coppola's latest film, titled The Beguiled, adapted from Thomas Cullinan's Southern Gothic novel. Set during the Civil War, an injured Union soldier ends up being nursed back to life inside a girls' boarding school in the Confederate south. Colin Farrell plays the soldier, and the cast includes Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, and Oona Laurence. While at first this seems like a simple love story, the twist is that the girls eventually turn on him, and there's that crazy funny line that Farrell shouts at the end of this trailer that is already being turned into a meme online. Here's the first official teaser trailer for Sofia Coppola's The Beguiled, direct from Focus' YouTube: While imprisoned in a Confederate girls' boarding school, »

Barring the delightful festive treat known as A Very Murray Christmas, it’s going on four years since Sofia Coppola’s last creative effort, The Bling Ring, dazzled moviegoers on the big screen. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the writer-director hasn’t been keeping busy.
In between work on documentaries like The Family Whistle, Coppola has been quietly pulling together a modern remake of The Beguiled, a new, star-studded interpretation on the novel A Painted Devil by Thomas P. Cullinan. Indeed, Cullinan’s period yarn has graced the screen before; back in 1971, director Don Siegel, Clint Eastwood and Geraldine Page tackled the family drama, which largely takes place in rural Mississippi during the height of the American Civil War.

The Beguiled, adapted by Sofia Coppola from Thomas Cullinan’s novel is set in a Virginia all girls' school in 1864. The Civil War's final battles play out while the Miss Martha Farnsworth Seminary for Young Ladies is insulated from the violence until a wounded Union soldier (Farrell) is found in the nearby woods. As Farrell's character recovers, however, he begins to have »
“The Beguiled, adapted by Sofia Coppola from Thomas Cullinan’s novel of the same name, unfolds in a girls’ school in the state of Virginia in 1864. As the Civil War rages, The Miss Martha Farnsworth Seminary for Young Ladies has been sheltered from the outside world— until the day a wounded Union soldier is discovered nearby and taken in.”

It’s hard to imagine two filmmakers more different than Sofia Coppola and Don Siegel, but now the two of them have something in common: they have both made film adaptations of Thomas P. Cullinan‘s 1966 Southern gothic novel A Painted Devil titled The Beguiled. Siegel’s 1971 version was his third collaboration with star Clint Eastwood (Dirty […]

“What have you done to me, you vengeful bitches?!” From Focus Features’ newly teaser for Sofia Coppola’s upcoming seductive thriller The Beguiled, which stars Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning and Colin Farrell. The pic is based on Thomas Cullinan’s novel of the same name and the 1971 Don Siegel adapation with Clint Eastwood and Geraldine Page.

Director Sofia Coppola is back with her first feature film since 2013's The Bling Ring, and this time she's going Southern Gothic. Based on the 1966 Thomas Cullinan novel and the 1971 film starring Clint Eastwood, The Beguiled centers around a Confederate soldier (Colin Farrell) who takes residence at an all-girls boarding school run by headmistress Martha Farnsworth (Nicole Kidman) in rural Virginia. However, as he begins to bond with a few of the young women, weird things start happening. Catch the dark trailer above before the film hits theaters on June 23.

The first trailer for Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled, a remake of the 1971 Don Siegel drama starring Clint Eastwood and Coppola’s first feature film since 2013’s The Bling Ring, has arrived. As expected, it’s thick with sensual atmosphere—we’d expect nothing less from Sofia Coppola—as Elle Fanning suggests that she and the rest of the students at a Southern girls’ boarding school during the Civil War show injured Union soldier Colin Farrell “some real Southern hospitality.” (Sex. She’s talking about sex.) The trailer also appears to be more faithful to the 19th-century period setting than Coppola has been in the past (Marie Antoinette, anyone?) lighting dim nighttime scenes with nothing but candlelight a la Barry Lyndon or The Witch.

Sofia Coppola last directed the Netflix special “A Very Murray Christmas,” but her last feature film seen on the big screen was 2013’s “The Bling Ring.” Now, the filmmaker returns with “The Beguiled,” a remake of Clint Eastwood’s 1971 film of the same name, which stars Kirsten Dunst as Edwina Dabney and Elle Fanning as Carol. After months of seeing photos from the set that the actresses shared on social media, Focus Features has finally unveiled the first trailer.
The drama is based on Thomas P. Cullinan’s 1966 novel “A Painted Devil” and is set during the Civil War. The story follows an injured Union soldier (Colin Farrell) who, while imprisoned in a Confederate girls’ boarding school, cons his way into each of the lonely women’s hearts, causing them to turn on each other, and eventually, on him. Nicole Kidman, Angourie Rice and Oona Laurence co-star.

In most instances, a remake of Don Siegel’s beloved Clint Eastwood vehicle The Beguiled wouldn’t be well-advised, much less an awfully high-ranking entry on our most-anticipated of 2017 list. Then you see it’s helmed by Sofia Coppola and led by Colin Farrell, Elle Fanning, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, and Angourie Rice (a recent stand-out in The Nice Guys), and you probably think, “Okay, yes, let’s get on with this.”
Coppola’s entry into the western genre — perhaps more a second adaptation of Thomas P. Cullinan’s A Painted Devil than journey into Siegel country — is hinted at with a first preview, which gives some glimpse of how she’ll be handling the juicy set-up: a Union solider becomes the object of affection for the girls and women of an all-female boarding school in the Antebellum South.

Welcome back, Sofia Coppola! It’s been four years since the Oscar winner last came to the big screen with the underrated “The Bling Ring,” but something tells us there’s no way her new drama is going to go unnoticed. Marking Coppola’s reunions with Kirsten Dunst (“The Virgin Suicides”) and Elle Fanning (“Somewhere”), “The Beguiled” finds the writer-director making a Civil War-era period drama, and Entertainment Weekly has gorgeous first look images from the film.
“The Beguiled” is based on the 1966 Thomas Cullinan novel, which was previously adapted into a 1971 film starring Clint Eastwood. Coppola’s version will be told from the perspective of the female characters. Nicole Kidman stars as the headmistress of a secluded school for girls in 1864 Virginia. Their lifestyle is disrupted by the discovery »

Update: The first trailer has arrived. Watch here.
Following The Bling Ring, Sofia Coppola is returning this year with a highly-anticipated remake of the 1971 Don Siegel thriller The Beguiled. With Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, Colin Farrell, Angourie Rice, and Addison Riecke rounding out the main ensemble, the first images have now arrived ahead of the trailer later tonight.
“I haven’t really done a genre film,” Coppola tells EW, who debuted the images. “It was fun to figure out how to approach that but still [keep the film] in my style, and to have this kind of beautiful, dreamy world that I like — but with a plot!” Shot by Philippe Le Sourd (The Grandmaster), the Civil War-era story follows Farrell as a Union soldier held captive by the Confederates in a girls’ boarding school, where he begins to con his way into their hearts.
Coppola adds, “The main crux of the »
