'Into the Woods' Preview Goes Behind the Fairytale

19 December 2014 5:39 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the Christmas Day release less than a week away, Walt Disney Pictures has released two clips and two featurettes for Into the Woods. Cinderella (Anna Kendrick) pushes away Prince Charming (Chris Pine) after he "strays" in the first clip, while Jack (Daniel Huttlestone) is forced to sell his beloved cow, at the behest of his mother (Tracey Ullman) in the second clip. The featurettes include interviews with cast members such as Emily Blunt, Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, Anna Kendrick, James Corden, composer Stephen Sondheim and director Rob Marshall, along with brand new footage and insight into this Broadway musical adaptation.

Into the Woods is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters' wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood »

'Into the Woods' (2014) Movie Review

19 December 2014 12:42 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I was both "excited and scared." These words, as sung by Little Red Riding Hood in the classic, Stephen Sondheim musical, echoed my sentiments as I walked into Disney's film adaptation of Into the Woods, a play I hold in very high regard and one of the seminal musicals that developed my love for the form. My cause for concern stemmed from director Rob Marshall (Chicago, Nine), whom, to this point, I don't believe has made a particularly good movie. Sitting down in the theater, my heart was pounding. Then, the fifteen-minute-long opening prologue started, and I began to settle. The show was in good hands, and the result is a successful entry into movie musical canon, even despite some issues. The film opens with a focus, primarily, on three separate fairy tales, two familiar to us all and one a new creation. First is Cinderella (Anna Kendrick) attending the king's festival, »

Go the the woods with the this behind-the-scenes Into the Woods featurette

19 December 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

At the heart of Into the Woods, there is a witch.  Played with great effect by Meryl Streep, she offers to break a curse laid upon the Baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) if they are to venture into the woods to retrieve objects of note, all which belong to some familiar characters.  The new musical from Disney weaves famous and familiar fairytale characters into one unique and exciting story as characters cross paths and stories.

Into the Woods shakes up the familiar to give us something entirely new on screen, combining comedy and drama and wrapping it into one luscious musical package with words and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.

An ensemble cast of Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, Tracy Ullman, Christine Baranski, Lilla Crawford, and Daniel Huttlestone are all on hand to play the fairytale characters we know so well.  Each one of them enters the »

Emily Blunt Gives the Unwieldy Into the Woods Its Heart

19 December 2014 5:00 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Early in the film of the fairy-tale operetta Into the Woods, I was nearly jumping out of my seat with glee. The creators of the original show, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, had intended to transcend — even explode — the sugary, homogenized Walt Disney treatment. Now here it is, getting a full, lavish Disney studio production with big-deal movie stars (Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp) and somehow working as well if not better than it did almost 30 years ago on Broadway. My euphoria lasted a long, long time … but all good things must end. Which is also the point of the musical, though not quite in the way it happens here. Until its hairpin turn into the apocalyptic, the material is ingenious. Sondheim and Lapine take three Brothers Grimm stories — “Cinderella,” “Jack and the Beanstalk,” and “Rapunzel” — and set them »

'Mortdecai' TV Spots: Johnny Depp Saves the World

18 December 2014 2:10 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you loved Johnny Depp's quirky, unexpected turn in this fall's horror comedy Tusk, you'll surely want to check out his next mad creation for the big screen in Mortdecai. The caper comedy only has a little more than a month before it hits cinemas across the country. Lionsgate has released two new TV spots from this David Koepp directed adventure, which show Depp having a lot of fun.

Juggling some angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and a special charm. He is in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account. Will this painting lead him to a treasure filled with Nazi gold?

This international adventure also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Olivia Munn, »

Neil Gaiman On Sandman: Cumberbatch, Hiddleston And An Imminent Script

18 December 2014 2:19 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There is good reason to be getting very excited for the film adaptation of Sandman that is currently in development. Jack Thorne is writing a script under the supervision of David S. Goyer and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and this is the closest that anybody has ever come to getting Neil Gaiman’s beloved 1989 graphic novel onto the screen. Many have tried, and many have failed – some scuppered by Gaiman himself, in his quest to prevent the production of versions of his work that he felt were below par. This time, however, it seems the creator himself is being kept at the centre of the endeavour – as he explained to the Radio Times.

“I’m just happy that no bad Sandman movie has ever been made. But I’m really hoping that a good one will be. They’re a good team. And with Joseph Gordon-Levitt in charge, his instincts are good and he loves the material. »

Orlando Bloom In Talks For 'Pirates 5', Teases Plot

17 December 2014 11:33 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Orlando Bloom has confirmed that he is in talks to return to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. He also teased the movie's plot, saying Pirates 5 may act as a soft reboot.

While promoting The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies, Bloom mentioned that he hasn't signed the contact for his return yet, but is very excited about the film's plot.

"I’m not entirely sure that [I'll be back] just yet, but there are talks," he said. "Basically they want to reboot the whole franchise, I think, and do something with me and the relationship with my son... I’m of course Davey Jones now, so I’m down the bottom of the ocean. It might be kind of fun to do something where I’m rumbling round the bottom of the ocean, because I won’t look anything like me. [Gestures to face] Get all gnarly."

'Into The Woods' Reviews: Rob Marshall Directs a Solid, Satisfying Sondheim Fairytale

17 December 2014 11:26 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

You can't please everyone, but Rob Marshall's reinvention of the Stephen Sondheim fairytale-mashup musical is just what the doctor ordered if you seek late-December escapism: catchy songs, blandly reassuring plot points, decent visuals and Meryl Streep as a witch in a wig. It's no "Chicago," but "Into the Woods" should satisfy (or, at least, shouldn't piss off) Sondheim fans, who were spoiled by Tim Burton's "Sweeney Todd" in 2007. If we can all take off our Streep blinders for a moment, the rest of the musical-savvy cast is also strong. Emily Blunt is especially striking as the Baker's Wife, bringing bouncy comedy to this otherwise thankless role; Anna Kendrick is as overly earnest as ever as the ragamuffin Cinderella; and Johnny Depp as The Wolf gets in and out of the way before becoming annoying. While the trades have stamped the film with approval—it's likely to nab SAG »

Orlando Bloom confirms Pirates of the Caribbean return talks

17 December 2014 8:52 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Orlando Bloom has revealed that he has held talks about returning to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

The actor starred in the first three instalments of the series, but did not appear in fourth film On Stranger Tides in 2011.

He has previously spoken about being open to reprising the role of Will Turner, but he has now revealed details about how the character could reappear.

Bloom told IGN: "I'm not entirely sure that [I'll be back] just yet but there are talks.

"Basically they want to reboot the whole franchise, I think, and do something with me and the relationship with my son.

"I'm of course Davey Jones now, so I'm down the bottom of the ocean. It might be kind of fun to do something where I'm rumbling round the bottom of the ocean, because I won't look anything like me. Get all gnarly."

Neil Gaiman Wants Tom Hiddleston For Sandman

17 December 2014 7:37 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

After years of wallowing in believed-unfilmable development hell, Neil Gaiman’s Sandman appears to be creeping closer to actually hitting screens in the hands of David S. Goyer, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and The FadesJack Thorne. But just who should play the iconic central figure, Morpheus? According to Gaiman, Tom Hiddleston could be a good shout.While the author – who is also a producer on the film – seriously considered Benedict “ubiquitous” Cumberbatch, the actor is a little busy conquering every genre role under the sun, including Marvel’s Doctor Strange. "It's a funny thing with Morpheus, says Gaiman. “Again, it's that thing where you look around and think, 'Yes, this person would be a fantastic person', and then time passes. There was a time Johnny Depp would've been a great Morpheus, but now he's too old and it's fine. I think the first time I saw Benedict was as Sherlock Holmes, »

Into the Woods review: How does the Meryl Streep, James Corden, Johnny Depp musical fare?

17 December 2014 7:30 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Rob Marshall; Screenwriters: James Lapine, Stephen Sondheim; Starring: Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp; Running time: 125 mins; Certificate: PG

If ever someone was guilty of not seeing the wood for the trees, it's Rob Marshall with this fairytale mash-up based on the Broadway musical. The Chicago director gets bogged down in a multi-strand narrative that unfolds in frustrating, circular motion as he tries to weave together several Brothers Grimm fairytales. Even the songs by Stephen Sondheim seem to blur into one.

Thank goodness for a constellation of stars who manage to rise above, particularly Meryl Streep whose wicked witch livens up many a scene. James Corden and Emily Blunt spark off each other well, too, as the humble baker and his wife who are childless thanks to one of the witch's spells and venture into the woods in an effort to break it. »

Film Review: ‘Into the Woods’

17 December 2014 6:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Be careful what you wish for” warn the ads for “Into the Woods” — an apt summary of the movie’s theme, and also the mindset of many a Stephen Sondheim fan ever since it was announced that the composer’s popular 1987 Broadway musical was being turned into a film. But such fears are swiftly allayed by director Rob Marshall, who, um, marshals Sondheim’s cavalcade of fairy-tale all-stars on to the screen in a faithful, never particularly inspired, but supremely respectable version — one that outclasses Marshall’s prior “Chicago” and “Nine,” to say nothing of this season’s two-ton musical monstrosity, “Annie.” Strong reviews and family appeal should earn Disney much more than a bunch of magic beans at the holiday box office, with a long shelf life to follow.

It certainly took Hollywood long enough  to see the forest for the trees where “Into the Woods” was concerned. A »

Into The Woods Review

Director: Rob Marshall.

Cast: James Corden, Emily Blunt, Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Mackenzie Mauzy, Lilla Crawford, Billy Magnussen, Daniel Huttlestone, Lucy Punch, Christine Baranski, Tammy Blanchard, Tracey Ullman.

Certificate: PG

Running Time: 124 minutes

Synopsis: A childless baker (Corden) and his wife (Blunt), must collect a series of items for a witch (Streep) in order to lift the family curse.

Johnny Depp. Disney. A Stephen Sondheim musical. You’d be forgiven for thinking you were stepping into a Tim Burton movie with Rob Marshall’s latest. With the plethora of fairy tale twists also coming out of Disney at the moment, you’d also be forgiven for thinking this was just another unimaginative money grab. To an extent you’d be right. After all, the stage show may have been around since 1987, but it’s taken this long to come around, and the success of Disney’s Once Upon A Time, »

Neil Gaiman talks Sandman movie, wants Tom Hiddleston for Morpheus

17 December 2014 2:47 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As Warner Bros., David S. Goyer and Joseph Gordon-Levitt continue to chip away at development on the long-awaited Sandman movie, creator Neil Gaiman has shared his thoughts on who he’d like to play the lead character of Dream, a.k.a. Morpheus.

“It’s a funny thing with Morpheus. Again, it’s that thing where you look around and think, ‘Yes this person would be a fantastic person’, and then time passes,” Gaiman tells The Radio Times. “There was a time Johnny Depp would’ve been a great Morpheus, but now he’s too old and it’s fine. I think the first time I saw Benedict Cumberbatch was as Sherlock Holmes, I thought, ‘wow, that’s incredibly Morpheus’. And fans probably thought the same because they immediately started doing fan-art, meshing the two of them up. Then again, Tom Hiddleston is still out there! And the truth is, »

Neil Gaiman Agrees: Tom Hiddleston Would Make A Great 'Sandman'

Update: Neil Gaiman has tweeted that it was a joke. Harrumph!

It's not true. It was a joke in an interview I'm afraid Rt @PickleAM: Please oh please let it be true that @twhiddleston will play Morpheus!

There's been talk of a big-screen adaptation of Neil Gaiman's "Sandman" for years, but it seems that things are finally kicking into gear. David S. Goyer and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are working on a script, with Jgl set to direct and star, but it seems that the prolific author has his own suggestions about who should play Morpheus.

Gaiman told RadioTimes.com, "It's a funny thing with Morpheus. Again, it's that thing where you look around and think, 'Yes, this person would be a fantastic person', and then time passes. There was a time Johnny Depp would've been a great Morpheus, but now he's too old and it's fine. »

Orlando Bloom Returning To Pirates Of The Caribbean?

Last we saw of the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise, it was streamlining itself after the unwieldy original trilogy and heading into standalone waters for 2011's On Stranger Tides. Only Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow and Geoffrey Rush's Barbossa remained from the earlier instalments, making Ost a reboot of sorts. But that may change for the developing fifth movie, Dead Men Tell No Tales. Orlando Bloom has revealed that there are discussions underway about him returning to the series."I'm not entirely sure that [I'll be back] just yet," Bloom told IGN while on the publicity trail for The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies, "but there are talks. Basically they want to reboot the whole franchise, I think, and do something with me and the relationship with my son."[Spoilers for Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End follow.]"I’m, of course, Davy Jones now," he continues, "so I’m down at the bottom of the ocean.
