LAVISH FIRST 'THE CROWN' EPIC SERIES TRAILER WITH CLAIRE FOY, MATT SMITH, JOHN LITHGOW! EMMA STONE IS DISNEY'S NEW 'CRUELLA' DE VIL?

EMMA STONE IS
DISNEY'S NEW 'CRUELLA DE VIL'?
I'm sure you've already heard it by now since it's been the movie news of the day: Emma Stone will lead Disney's live action CRUELLA movie! She will play the legendary villain in the new story on the famous Cruella De Vil from 101 DALMATIANS who was previously played by Glenn Close which means this rendition would see her much younger, kinda like Angelina Jolie was in MALEFICENT which means it will be an origin story!
As I've informed you before, beside MALEFICENT, SNOWWHITE and CINDERELLA which already have their new versions, JUNGLE BOOK, DUMBO, MULAN and TINKERBELL are also getting new live action versions. PETE'S DRAGON and BEAUTY AND THE BEAST are already done.

'THE CROWN' EPIC SERIES
GETS FIRST LAVISH TRAILER
But your main treat for today is the lavish and expensively looking (should be, since the budget is astonishing 100$ million) first trailer for Netflix new ten part historical series THE CROWN depicting the early years of British queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy) and her ascension on the throne. As you can see from the trailer the big focus will be on her marriage to war commander Philip Mountbatten - played by Matt Smith. Set in the aftermath of World War II, the series will also describe her disagreements with Winston Churchill (John Lithgow). The series creator is Peter Morgan who won an Oscar for THE QUEEN with Helen Mirren. Brilliant Stephen Daldry (THE READER, BILLY ELLIOTT) is directing.

  1. Looking forward to "The Crown." I was a bit doubtful about John Lithgow as Churchill but he seems to do okay.

    2. I didn't think he was big enough to play a chubby man like Churchill

  4. I hope they make Cruella likable like they did with Maleficent. However, you can't really like someone who wants to wear puppies as a fashion accessory. We'll see how they formulate the story.

    1. Wait, Maleficent was likeable? :) How can Angelina be likeable in any way? :)

    2. It was a really cute movie, even if you don't like Angelina. They turned it into a whole new, feel good story. One of my favorites they've remade so far.

    3. How can it be feelgood, the sweetest of sisters, when they were whipping her with chains? It was good in first half an hour and then turned into torture porn horror, leaving me shaking from fright in the corner of my imperial chambers.

  7. I agree with Jaclyn Emma looks as if she was born for this role. I did like her a lot In The Birdman!

  10. Nice to see Matt Smith doing something after Dr. Who.

    It seems to be a trend to take Disney villains and cast them in a new light. Should be interesting to see how Emma does as Cruella.

    1. yes, and I'm not sure I like the trend, because it makes everything relative and inspires kids to love villains
