Helena Bonham Carter has always been one of our favorite actresses.
She has run the gamut in her career from the wild woman you meet when you watch Fight Club online to the riveting performance she gave us as the evil Bellatrix Lestrange in the Harry Potter movies.
But, with her role as the Fairy Godmother in Cinderella, she finally has a chance to be an upstanding character that seems to possess all the good in the world, wrapped up in one person.
Director Kenneth Branagh could not have cast her any better. And like he did with that Cate Blanchett Cinderella poster (released just the other day), he and Disney are showing off another fantastic piece of casting with the release of the Carter character poster.
That Cinderella trailer is beyond captivating and we find ourselves utterly eager to check out the classic animated film in live form when it lands March 31, 2015 with Lily James in the title role.
Cinderella hits theaters March 13, 2015.
