Once upon a time, in a land far, far, away Sir Kenneth Branagh directed a new, live-action version of Cinderella. Well, technically, he made it in London last year. But this fresh, Disney-backed take on the beloved tale—which is released on March 13 next year —does have what sounds like a fairytale cast, with Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother Lady Tremaine, Helena Bonham-Carter as the Fairy Godmother, Game of Thrones star Richard Madden as the Prince, Derek Jacobi as the King, Stellan Skarsgård as the King’s scheming adviser (is there really any other kind?), and Downton Abbey actress Lily James as Ella.

It’s certainly not the first time the comparison between Wall Street swindlers and sewer-dwelling vermin has been drawn—but it’s never been done with quite such cinematic flair before.

Pretty soon there may be more films about cult movie The Room than people who actually saw the hilariously awful movie when it was originally released in 2003. We exaggerate—but not by much. James and Dave Franco are set to star in a big-screen adaptation of Room star Greg Sestero’s book The Disaster Artist while Sestero’s fellow cast member Robyn Paris recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a mockumentary called The Room Actors: Where Are They Now? And that’s not all! Grab your cutlery, folks, because a trailer for a real documentary about writer-director-star Tommy Wiseau’s passion project called Room Full of Spoons has just been released. You can check out the clip below.
Horror directors these days seem to almost automatically genuflect before the altars of such ’70s and ’80s filmmakers as John Carpenter and Dario Argento. But writer-director Jennifer Kent sought inspiration from much older auteurs while crafting her debut film, the much-acclaimed, Sundance-screened, The Babadook. “I’ve watched everything, from Mario Bava to Dario Argento—all of those ‘70s guys, including John Carpenter, who I love,” she says. “But I feel very drawn also to the early stuff. There were directors in the ’20s and ’30s—Carl Dreyer, Fritz Lang—who were making films that were art and they just happened to be terrifying. I think somewhere along the way we denigrated the art form and horror really has become a dirty word. I think that’s a shame, because it’s really cinematic.”
Understatement alert: It seems people want to see this Avengers movie.
Despite a breakdown in Marvel’s synergistic plans to debut the first teaser for Avengers: Age of Ultron during Tuesday’s broadcast of ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. when a raw-looking, early leak of the footage hit the web on Wednesday, the film has still shattered the studio’s records for trailer views.

What do you do if you wind up being in one of the most hilariously terrible films of all time? You make a comedy about it. That’s the exact approach being actress-turned-filmmaker Robyn Paris is taking. More than a decade after she appeared in writer-director-star Tommy Wiseau’s infamously awful cult film The Room, Paris has now launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a Christopher Guest-style mockumentary about what happened to the cast after shooting concluded.
