The makers took to Twitter to release the new trailer that sees Cruella de Vil embracing her notoriously fashionable and downright wicked side.
“This May, the Devil gets her due,” read the caption of the post.
Set in 1970s London amidst the punk rock revolution, the film 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 would cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become the raucous, fashionable and revenge-bent Cruella.
A poster featuring Stone in a crooked avatar, sporting an all-black ensemble was also dropped at the same time as the release of the trailer. The actor is seen donning the iconic black and white hair with red lip shade and her trademark white makeup.
Directed by Craig Gillespie (‘I Tonya’) from a screenplay by Dana Fox and Tony McNamara, and ‘Cruella’ is scripted by Aline Brosh McKenna and Kelly Marcel and Steve Zissis.
Two-time Oscar-winning costume designer Jenny Beavan (‘Mad Max: Fury Road, A Room with a View) creates dazzling and imaginative costumes, which take on a life of their own.
