A short teaser trailer for Suffragette has been released on their official Facebook page! Sadly, Helena does not feature a great deal (in fact, I challenge you to spot her!), but it is still a great first look at what I anticipate will be a brilliant film.
HBO has ordered a limited series of Codes of Conduct, which will have an initial six-episode run. If the series does well, additional episodes may be ordered. Currently all we know about Helena’s character is that she is a Manhattan author and psychiatrist called Esther Kaufmann, and is a divorced mother of two grown boys. Ester is described as “doing well on her own, until she comes across Snow (Devon Terrell)”. It is not known how many of the six episodes, directed by Steve McQueen, Helena will appear in.

I have added two MQ pictures of Helena on the set of Cinderella, published by The Telegraph.
Kenneth Branagh: Helena Bonham Carter plays a deliciously ditzy and well-meaning fairy godmother who seems not necessarily to be in perfect control of her powers. We see here that look of slight apprehension. Helena wanted a touch of the yummy mummy and talked about Mae West and Marilyn Monroe. She was also very keen to have wings. Sandy was a little anti-wing to begin with, but came around. Her dress was lit from the inside – there’s a whole disco rig underneath there – and we had guys following her with a battery, so it would light up when she lifted her wand. We had real and CGI pumpkins, plus a huge inflatable one. This is made from polystyrene and the sculptors inserted a weight because we wanted it to have the weight of a real pumpkin.

I have upgraded the Cinderella stills with higher resolution versions, and added one extra thanks to Lily-James.com. If you have been following the official Cinderella tumblr, you will know that they have been releasing photos and GIFs in the countdown to the film’s release; I’ve added two of the Fairy Godmother pictures to the gallery.
I’m probably a little late to the party here (I’ve been busy with university), but has anyone checked out the official website for Cinderella? How about their Tumblr page? You can download some cute gifs like this one:
And Helena features on the soundtrack! I didn’t even realise she would be singing in Cinderella!
The London premiere of Cinderella will be held Thursday 19th March at Odeon Leicester Square; while Helena did not attend the LA premiere, she is likely to attend the one in London.
I have added 91 MQ pictures of Helena looking absolutely stunning in black while attending the premiere of Cinderella at the Berlin International Film Festival this evening. Does Helena actually age…?
