Academy Award® winner Emma Stone (“La La Land”) stars in Disney’s “Cruella,” an all-new live-action feature film about the rebellious early days of one of cinemas most notorious – and notoriously fashionable – villains, the legendary Cruella de Vil. “Cruella,” which is set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, follows a young grifter named Estella, a clever and creative girl determined to make a name for herself with her designs. She befriends a pair of young thieves who appreciate her appetite for mischief, and together they are able to build a life for themselves on the London streets. One day, Estella’s flair for fashion catches the eye of the Baroness von Hellman, a fashion legend who is devastatingly chic and terrifyingly haute, played by two-time Oscar® winner Emma Thompson (“Howards End,” “Sense & Sensibility”). But their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that will cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent Cruella.
Disney’s “Cruella” is directed by Craig Gillespie (“I Tonya”) from a screenplay by Dana Fox and Tony McNamara, story by Aline Brosh McKenna and Kelly Marcel & Steve Zissis. It was produced by Andrew Gunn (“Freaky Friday”), Marc Platt (“Mary Poppins Returns”) and Kristin Burr (“Christopher Robin”), with Emma Stone, Michelle Wright, Jared LeBoff and Glenn Close serving as executive producers. Two-time Oscar®- winning costume designer Jenny Beavan (“Mad Max: Fury Road,” “A Room with a View”) creates the dazzling and imaginative costumes, which take on a life of their own.

Top 10 Movies of 2021
2021 is in the rearview mirror and before we look forward to the most anticipated movies in 2022, it’s our turn to look back at the best last year had to offer. From a three hour, intimate Japanese drama to the biggest blockbuster Marvel and the MCU had to offer, it was a great year in the cinema. Here is a look at our 10 favorite films of 2021.
We broke our picks out by genres, from comedies like the hard to pin down, based on a twitter thread, Zola, and Wes Anderson at his MOST Wes Anderson-y with The French Dispatch, to the biggest budgets Hollywood can muster in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Dune and Steven Spielberg the first time music director of West Side Story. Lin Manuel Miranda gave us In The Heights and Andrew Garfield in Tick, Tick, Boom. Music documentaries had a banner year as well, Peter Jackson and The Beatles, Questlove and the Summer of Soul and four separate Britney Spears docs found their way to screens this year. But period dramas were just as great, like Ridley Scott and The Last Duel, David Lowery’s Arthurian legend The Green Knight and Benedict Cumberbatch found his way to the old west with Jane Campion in The Power of the Dog.
But let us know what your favorites were this year and be sure to subscribe to CineFix for everything coming in 2022!
