Tasked with remaking Disney's Cinderella as a live-action film, Kenneth Branagh appears to have done that. Exactly that. No more. No less. It's definitely that, though.

With a style best described as "was this a BBC production rebroadcast on PBS?", the director seems to have delivered what will be hailed as our most utterly serviceable rendition of the tale. Perfect for moderate Cinderella fans who like the story well enough but aren't, like, nuts about it. Downton Abbey's Lily James, Game of Thrones' Richard Madden, Helena Bonham Carter, and Cate Blanchett are perfectly satisfactory in the starring roles.

Here's the just-released, completely competent trailer that hits all the mandated bullet points. It's sure to leave you saying, "....Mmm, yeah, that looks like Cinderella as I understand it."
