Get ready to cower as iconic Disney villain Cruella de Vil struts her way back onto the big screen. Origin story Cruella stars Emma Stone as the fabulous, fur-loving fashionista, and we're delighted to announce that tickets are now on sale in Cineworld.
Here's a sampling of responses to the movie, which is directed by I, Tonya's Craig Gillespie and co-stars Emma Thompson as Cruella's nemesis, the Baroness. Judging from the following reactions, it appears that we'll be getting something delightfully morbid and dark in time for the summer season. It sounds as if Stone's performance is vampish and then some, while Jenny Beavan's costumes and the soundtrack also come in for praise.
#Cruella is one of Disney’s strongest live-action remakes that gives an updated origin story for a new age whilst showcasing breathtaking fashion.— DiscussingFilm (@DiscussingFilm) May 14, 2021
Emma Stone is wildly entertaining in the titular role as she fully commits to the villain persona in a fearless & bold performance. pic.twitter.com/cK583U6Ow5
Cruella could be the biggest surprise of the summer. Bold, dark, & wonderfully anti-Disney. Emma Stone is perfection as Cruella. Hair & Makeup, Production Design & Costume Design are sure bets for Oscars noms. Paul Walter Hauser is terrific and Winks the dog is adorable. #Cruella pic.twitter.com/zPCdFXSGL3— Scott Menzel (@ScottDMenzel) May 14, 2021
#Cruella is a wickedly fun watch w/ amazing costumes & an epic soundtrack. Emma Stone and Emma Thompson are exceptionally evil & hilarious, and they make the movie memorable. Also, Paul Walter Hauser steals scenes, as he tends to do. It's like a Disneyfied DEVIL WEARS PRADA pic.twitter.com/dUSjlVlgsu— Erik Davis (@ErikDavis) May 14, 2021
I generally have 0 interest in live-action remakes and/or villain origin stories but... have seen #Cruella and it’s SO FRIGGIN GOOD. Slaps so hard my face is still beet-red a day later.— Joel Meares (@joelmeares) May 14, 2021
If Devil Wears Prada meets The Witches meets Death Becomes Her sounds like your jam, see it. pic.twitter.com/CqPsOHAJnG
#Cruella is absolutely divine. Deliciously devilish, wonderfully wicked, undeniably outrageous. Emma Stone & Emma Thompson are truly an iconic pairing & they play it to the hilt. Costume designer Jenny Beavan deserves 3rd billing. Plus, it’s got a killer soundtrack. @cruella pic.twitter.com/N5UFEnmSr1— Courtney Howard (@Lulamaybelle) May 14, 2021
