Disney has released a new international poster for its upcoming musical fairy tale fantasy Into the Woods, which you can check out right here…
Into the Woods is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests.

No, Kevin Bacon hasn’t reached the point in his career where he’ll go on I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here! and eat bugs. Though he did do those Ee and Sky ads… Instead, he’s reuniting with director Greg McLean for Jungle.Justin Monjo wrote the script for the movie, which was in development with the Spierig brothers before they decided to move on to other projects.Jungle is loosely based on the true story of adventure-seeker Yossi Ghinsberg, who found himself lost in the Amazon rainforest in Bolivia in 1981, which means lots of alone time for Bacon on location. It’ll make for the second collaboration between Bacon and McLean, who have just worked together on 6 Miranda Drive, a new supernatural thriller for Blumhouse Productions in which a family returns from a holiday at the Grand Canyon with a ghostly presence along for the ride. »
In case you were wondering, Johnny Depp “doesn’t give a f--k.” The Pirates of the Caribbean actor revealed in an interview with Details magazine that when it comes to the critics, he doesn’t have a care in the world. “As Marlon [Brando] once so beautifully f--king said to me, ‘Life is a birdsong.’ That’s stuck with me,” Depp, 51, explained about his path to zero-f--ks-given. “For everybody, the clock’s ticking. The main thing is whether you sit there and stare at the clock in fear of your [...] »
Johnny Depp says he's liberated himself from a longtime personal burden of often caring too much about his acting by following the artistic philosophy of the late Marlon Brando. In doing so, he has no fear to take on projects that critics - or even himself - might otherwise poo-poo, although he admits that his busy career has him dashing at a "schizophrenic" pace. "What is really satisfying is, like Marlon, getting to that place where he just didn't give a f---," Depp, 51, told Details magazine in its December issue for a story that dubs the musician and celebrity maverick "the anti-leading man. »

Though a few of Johnny Depp's most recent films -- The Lone Ranger, The Tourist, Transcendence, Dark Shadows -- have not exactly been critical and box office successes, the actor has gotten to a place in his career where the critics don't bother him.
In a new interview with Details magazine, Depp gets especially blunt about his questionable choice of films.
"As Marlon once so beautifully f*cking said to me, life is a birdsong. That's stuck with me," he says, quoting his mentor, the legendary actor Marlon Brando. "What is really satisfying is, like Marlon, getting to that place where he just didn't give a f*ck."

While in the lush and tropical world of mermaids, pirates, and magic, Peter comes face-to-face with James Hook (Garret Hedlund) and Princess Tiger Lily (Rooney Mara). Before Peter can truly discover his destiny and the fairytale we are all familiar with, he must first face a foe in the form of the dreaded pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman).
Jackman looks like he borrowed a page from Johnny Depp’s Pirates of the Caribbean playbook on how to be a swashbuckler and there’s no denying the versatile actor is having a ball with the role. It’s »

The Paris International Fantastic Film Festival has come to an end, and the big winner of its Oeil d’Or (Golden Eye) for Best Film has been awarded to the American-Italian film Spring, directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead. Unlike most festivals, the audience is the jury in the feature films categories. Benson later took to Twitter to thank the French audience for its support. The closing ceremony ended with a screening of Kevin Smith’s rather disappointing Tusk, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last September. Justin Long stars as comedian-turned-podcaster targeted by a sadistic killer who wants to transform him into a walrus. Not even Johnny Depp as the alcoholic ex-cop can save this horror of a film. Pifff is also known for its selection of short films. Some would be interesting to see some as full-length movies. The shorts competition included two selections: international and French, »

"Moulin Rouge!" (2001), "Chicago" (2002), "The Phantom of the Opera" (2004), "Dreamgirls" (2006), "Enchanted" (2007), "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" (2007), "Nine" (2009), "Les Misérables" (2012). Between them, 50 oscar nominations, only three of them recognized for Best Picture and only one of them taking the big prize. That's more or less the modern legacy Rob Marshall's "Into the Woods" is looking to enter into, a stage of relative reinvigoration for the musical film genre. Of course, then there are films like "Burlesque," "Hairspray," "Mamma Mia!" and "The Producers," which were stiffed by the Academy but were remembered in the HFPA's Best Picture — Comedy/Musical category at the Golden Globes. Not to mention others like "Fame," "Footloose," "Idlewild," "Rent" and "Rock of Ages," which weren't remembered at all come awards season (with "Jersey Boys" and maybe "Annie" likely to meet similar fates). All of that is to simply illustrate the ups and downs for these »

With Johnny Depp as usual strapped to the mast as Captain Jack Sparrow and not one, but two directors (Kon-Tiki duo Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg) recruited, the fifth Pirates Of The Caribbean film, Dead Men Tell No Tales is gathering the rest of its scurvy crew. Aussie actor Brenton Thwaites has now won the coveted role on Henry.Disney went on the usual casting splurge recently, looking at the likes of Kingsman’s Taron Egerton, Pride’s George MacKay and The Fault In Our Stars’ Ansel Elgort to fill the type of role once held by Orlando Bloom and, more recently, Sam Claflin in On Stranger Tides. Thwaites won out to play the dashing British soldier who will factor into the plot somehow.With a script that has seen work from Jeff Nathanson, Dead Men Tell No Tales is busy building the cast, with offers out to Javier Bardem »

Dinsey unveiled another piece of the Oscar season puzzle Saturday night with an innovative bi-coastal screening of their big holiday release, the musical adaptation of Into The Woods, which screened simultaneously in New York City and at Disney Studios in Burbank (where I saw it).
Post-screening, a satellite-transmitted Q&A featured director Rob Marshall, screenwriter James Lapine and key cast members. Full disclosure: I have been in love with this Stephen Sondheim masterpiece since even before it debuted on Broadway on Nov. 5, 1987. Southern California native that I am, I trekked down to San Diego’s Old Globe Theatre in 1986 for its pre-Broadway tryout and instantly fell in love.
It’s not only one of my favorite Sondheim musicals (in the top three to be sure with Company and West Side Story), but high among the greatest theatrical experiences I have ever had. I have seen the show in various incarnations several times since. »
