Since Disney released the first trailer for Cruella, fans couldn’t help but comment on the similarities between the movie and Todd Phillips’ jester movie starring Joaquin Phoenix. In an interview with Total Film magazine, Emma Stone, who will rehearse the lead role of Cruella de Vil in the next film, stated that despite the similarities in style and tone, Cruella is doing his thing, different from jester, while praising Phoenix, whom he starred alongside the 2015 film. Irrational man.
“[Cruella is] very different from jester in so many ways … I would never even remotely compare myself to Joaquin Phoenix. I wish I was more like him. “
The reasons for the comparisons between the two films are understandable. Both Cruella and jester are origin stories of iconic villains, the first being the spoiled heir to 101 Dalmatians who intended to skin the Dalmatians to make a fur coat, and the latter was Batman’s best-known nemesis. According to Craig Gillespie, who directed Cruella, while the themes of his film are similar to jester, the treatment of the story will be quite different.
“There are some really deep and emotional things that Cruella is dealing with that send her to the darker side of the villains. So, in that sense, it’s [similar to Joker]. But it’s definitely his thing. Just to rephrase Cruella, I thought it was important to show this darker side of her. But it’s going to be a lot of fun, with a lot of humor. There are a lot of absolutely delightful jokes and pacing to the style, which is different from the Joker. “
Of course, the comparisons with jester they’re not a bad thing, as the film became the highest-grossing R-rated film of all time, not to mention winning Joaquin Phoenix an Oscar for Best Actor. However, in the process, the film also forever changed the public’s perception of the Clown Prince of Crime. In the past, the character had always been portrayed as ruthless and gleefully evil. But jester Instead, it showed him as a misunderstood loner, driven to do bad things by an indifferent society, making him more of an antihero than a villain.
From the trailer look of Cruella, something similar is being done for the character of Stone as well. When it comes to villains, you can’t sink much deeper than wanting to skin the pups to make coats out of their fur. But it seems that the next film will portray Cruella in a much more comprehensive way, with the implication that she was forced to do bad things after being unfairly rejected by the world of haute couture when she was a young designer desperately wanting to become. in a. part of.
Directed by Craig Gillespie, Cruella stars Emma Stone, Emma Thompson, Paul Walter Hauser, Joel Fry, Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Mark Strong, and Emily Beecham. The film hits theaters and at Disney + Premier Access on May 28. This news was first published in GamesRadar.com.
