Trap-for-Cinderella-PosterIain Softley’s psychological thriller, Trap for Cinderella, is just a few weeks away from hitting cinemas in the UK, and what we’ve seen so far suggests it’s going to be a memorable new entry for the genre.

The first trailer was released earlier in the month, giving us an excellent first look at Softley’s upcoming return. And now Lionsgate have released the film’s first poster, with Tuppence Middleton front and centre.

Micky (Tuppence Middleton) is a fun-loving photographer, living a party lifestyle in London until a chance encounter with a childhood friend changes her world forever. The opposite to life-and-soul Micky, Do (Alexandra Roach) is a quiet bank clerk, with little by way of a social life. Yet much to the annoyance of her DJ boyfriend Jake (Aneurin Barnard), Micky is all too delighted to reacquaint herself with Do, embracing her old friend with typical gusto.

But when they return to the tranquil French villa where they spent so many happy summers in their youth, tragedy strikes. A fire engulfs the building, leaving Micky badly burnt and blighted by amnesia. Unable to even recall her own name, Micky is forced on a shocking journey of self-discovery. For nothing — friends, relatives, lovers and even herself — is as she remembers it.

Middleton is joined by an excellent cast, led by Alexandra Roach, Aneurin Barnard, Kerry Fox, Frances de la Tour, and Emilia Fox.

Softley is directing from his own script, adapting the original cult novel by Sebastien Japrisot.

Trap for Cinderella will be released in the UK and Ireland on 12th July. As of yet, there’s still no word on a US release date. But here’s to hoping that it will be heading to the States a little later in the year. For now, here’s the first poster for the film, which you can click through to enlarge.
