When the clock struck midnight on New Year's Eve, nothing in my world changed much. The Ferrari I brought to Diddy's house was still a Ferrari. My fresh-off-the-runway Balmain jacket was stil a fresh-off-the-runway Balmain jacket. And my date for the evening was still the princess of a country that will not be named here, for fear of getting her excommunicated (her father doesn't like me much).
Unfortunately, the same can't be said for Cinderella. When the clock strikes midnight in her world, bad things happen. According to the latest trailer for the upcoming live-action version of the classic fairy tale, before those bad things happen, a lot of pretty things need to happen first.
Even when the bad things do happen, they happen in the form of Cate Blanchett, who plays the Evil Stepmother. With Helena Bonham Carter, Hayley Atwell, Richard Madden, and Lily James joining the fray, we have an early contender for the best looking movie of 2015.
