Cruella Trailer

Over the past decade, Disney has made it abundantly clear that one of its primary goals is to remake, reimagine, or otherwise remix many of its classic animated properties in live-action. One of the company’s approaches is to provide origin stories for villains that cast them in new light – it happened in 2014’s Angelina Jolie-led Maleficent, and it’s happening again with another Oscar winner. This time, Emma Stone (La La Land, Easy A) plays a young, punk-rock version of Cruella de Vil, the over-the-top, dog-hating fashion maven from 1961’s 101 Dalmatians, in Cruella, which finally has its first trailer. Check it out below.

Emma Stone is ready for her close-up as the vampire bat, the inhuman beast, known as Cruella De Vil. The La La Land and Easy A star is getting a little evil by starring in Cruella, where she’ll play a younger version of the dog-napping villain from 101 Dalmatians. The movie is said to be an origin story for the twisted fashionista, and a new poster shows off Emma Stone as the darkly chic character, which we’ll get a much better glimpse of when the first trailer arrives tomorrow.

poor things

The Favourite team of Yorgos Lanthimos and Emma Stone are reuniting for Poor Things, based on the book by Alasdair Gray. The novel is a send-up of Victorian literature and a re-imagining of Frankenstein, in which the monster has been replaced with “Bella Baxter – a beautiful young erotomaniac brought back to life with the brain of an infant.” And you have to admit, that already sounds like a Yorgos Lanthimos movie.
