‘Dunkirk’ Teaser: Christopher Nolan Offers Chilling History Lessons With An All-Star Cast
  |  @   |  

In the past few years, Christopher Nolan has given us a taste for superhero theatrics in the Dark Knight trilogy, taken us to the various levels of dreams in Inception, and traveled through space and time in Interstellar. But his next feature is a bit more grounded in reality; in fact, it draws a bit from history.

Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Dunkirk, a film that follows the events of the British military operation that helped save the lives of 330,000 soldiers while on the shores of French seaport of Dunkirk. Check out the trailer below.

Kenneth Branagh To Direct ‘Artemis Fowl’ Adaptation For Disney
  |  @   |  

Disney is getting ready to try to bring author Eoin Colfer‘s book series Artemis Fowl to life once again in a live-action adaptation. The studio teamed up with The Weinstein Company back in 2013 for the project, but making the movie happen has proven difficult. The Weinsteins first acquired the rights to adapt, when they were Miramax, around when the first book came out back in 2001 before Disney bought the company and they went on to found TWC.

Now comes word that they’ve brought in Thor and Cinderella director Kenneth Branagh to develop and direct the movie. It’s also being reported that Irish playwright Conor McPherson is in talks to pen a new screenplay for the movie.

But given both filmmakers’ busy schedules, the film would not likely go into production for some time, at least not any time soon.

Now a new interview reveals that there is “some” progress being made, and the two are nearly closing the deal to get the film made. Hit the jump for more.

Release date: March 13, 2015

What I, a grown man, think of Disney’s new live-action Cinderella film is really irrelevant. So let’s go straight to the target audience: Charlotte, my 4-year-old daughter. “Char, what did you think of Cinderella?” “Cinderella had a pink dress, then she had a blue dress, and then gets married and has a white dress.”

Suffice it to say, the target crowd will lap up this latest retelling of the classic story, made timeless in 1950.

Get Ready For The Ball With New ‘Cinderella’ Trailer From Disney

Disney Studios is gearing up for its first official outing of what will no doubt be a big 2015 for them studio its live action adaptation of Cinderella coming March 13, 2015. In this third trailer for the upcoming film, released today at the stroke of midnight, we get a little more of the story beyond the well-known animated Disney film and more of the wicked Cate Blanchett.

Check out the new trailer here below.
