Anyone who thought that Disney’s “Cinderella” wasn’t dark enough need only wait for “The Tale of Tales,” Italian filmmaker
Matteo Garrone’s 2015 entry to the Palme d’Or competition at the Cannes Film
Festival. Be warned though, this trailer is not for the faint of heart.

Based on a 17th century collection
of fairy tales by Italian author Giambattista Basile, the film weaves realistic
and fantastical elements together into three different storylines, one of which
involves Salma Hayek eating the heart of a giant beast. Vincent Cassel, John C.
Reilly and Toby Jones also star.

Matteo Garrone is no stranger to
competition—he won the Grand Prix at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival for his film “Reality.” “The Tale of Tales” will mark his English-language film debut, and
will premiere in May 2015 at Cannes.
