Into the Woods review: trees fall in a forest, making one hell of a sound

17 December 2014 6:59 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Rob Marshall’s big screen version of the Stephen Sondheim musical has taken nearly three decades. Emily Blunt and Meryl Streep just about make it worthwhile

The path to the big screen for Stephen Sondheim’s fairytale mashup has been long and winding. A read-through was held more than 20 years ago, with Goldie Hawn and Robin Williams as the infertile baker and his wife, Cher as the witch who commissions them to fetch bits and bobs (cow, slipper, cape, hair etc) from the forest so she can break the spell, Danny DeVito as the giant, Steve Martin the big bad wolf and Roseanne Barr as Jack’s mother, fed up with her son’s bad haggling. A fresh cast – including Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan and Susan Sarandon – were cued up by Jim Henson in the late 90s, before the curtain fell on that, too. Then, after the success of rootin-tootin »

Strictly Come Dancing: the semi-final – as it happened

14 December 2014 12:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

With the nation still reeling from Trixie’s shock departure, the five remaining contestants performed two dances each. Who made it through to the grand final?

7.56pm GMT

So that’s it from me until the Grand Final, thank you as ever for joining in and being entirely brilliant in the comment box.

Join me from 6.30pm next Saturday for the first part of the final – we’ll hang some streamers down below and make it a party.

7.55pm GMT

So that means we have our four final couples – Mark and Karen, Caroline and Pasha, Frankie and Kevin and Simon and Kristina. Caroline is looking like the favourite to win, but that’s by no means a done deal – it’s going to be a cracking final, I reckon.

7.54pm GMT

So it’s goodbye to Jake the Snake and his amazing shimmying hips. Am not surprised, but would have »

Can Chris Rock save the romantic comedy?

14 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

There once was a time when people laughed at romantic comedies. And I don't mean that they snickered at the term as an epithet for a genre that's become lazy and formulaic, as many do now. They actually used to laugh because romantic comedies were funny—hence the term, romantic-comedy. But somewhere after the box-office reigns of Julia Roberts and Meg Ryan, during the Kate Hudson dynasty, and definitely before Good Luck Chuck, rom-coms became a creative wasteland. "Oh, it’s been horrible," Chris Rock tells EW. "It’s been brutal for 20 years. They always forget the comedy part, and »

Several of Grant's Best Films Tonight on TCM

8 December 2014 5:45 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Cary Grant movies: 'An Affair to Remember' does justice to its title (photo: Cary Grant ca. late 1940s) Cary Grant excelled at playing Cary Grant. This evening, fans of the charming, sophisticated, debonair actor -- not to be confused with the Bristol-born Archibald Leach -- can rejoice, as no less than eight Cary Grant movies are being shown on Turner Classic Movies, including a handful of his most successful and best-remembered star vehicles from the late '30s to the late '50s. (See also: "Cary Grant Classic Movies" and "Cary Grant and Randolph Scott: Gay Lovers?") The evening begins with what may well be Cary Grant's best-known film, An Affair to Remember. This 1957 romantic comedy-melodrama is unusual in that it's an even more successful remake of a previous critical and box-office hit -- the Academy Award-nominated 1939 release Love Affair -- and that it was directed »

The 35 Greatest Murder Mystery Movies Ever Made

28 November 2014 7:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Murder mysteries are so commonplace on TV that each week offers seemingly dozens of them on police procedural series and detective shows. But in the movies, whodunits are surprisingly rare, and really good ones rarer still. There's really only a handful of movies that excel in offering the viewer the pleasure of solving the crime along with a charismatic sleuth, often with an all-star cast of suspects hamming it up as they try not to appear guilty.

One of the best was "Murder on the Orient Express," released 40 years ago this week, on November 24, 1974. Like many films adapted from Agatha Christie novels, this one featured an eccentric but meticulous investigator (in this case, Albert Finney as Belgian epicure Hercule Poirot), a glamorous and claustrophobic setting (here, the famous luxury train from Istanbul to Paris), and a tricky murder plot with an outrageous solution. The film won an Oscar for passenger »

The Rise, Fall and Rise of Jennifer Aniston

21 November 2014 4:38 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During the 1990s, Jennifer Aniston was one of the most popular actresses in the world. She may not have been blowing up the box office like Julia Roberts, Meg Ryan or Sandra Bullock, she was instead the star of the hit comedy show Friends – which had turned her into a household name. So popular was Aniston during this period that he hair even became known as “The Rachel”, a much-requested style for hairdressers during the 90s. The show was watched by millions around the world and has become one of the most celebrated Us sitcoms of all-time, launching Aniston and her co-stars into hot property. Particularly as the show couldn’t last forever and the cast would look to transition to the big screen.

Aniston was no stranger to cinema. She got her first break in the horror comedy Leprechaun in 1993, but would take a break during her first few years on Friends. »

Happy Birthday, Meg Ryan! See the Star's Changing Look Through the Years!

19 November 2014 6:00 AM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Can you believe romantic-comedy darling Meg Ryan is turning 53?! The When Harry Met Sally star won America over in the late '80s into the early '90s with her memorable roles in Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail and more guilty pleasure flicks. Who else could have such an intimate reaction to a sandwich in a public diner and still be so cute while doing it? In recent years the celeb has made fewer red carpet appearances, and has made headlines for her changing look and on-again, off-again relationship with John Mellencamp. But we still see her as the hopeless romantic who rushes to the top of the Empire State Building to meet her love or finds love—on AOL of all »

Interview: Rocky Morton, 'Super Mario Bros.'

12 November 2014 4:24 AM, PST | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

The name Rocky Morton may not be familiar with many of today's film fans, but in the late 80s he was the co-creator (along with Annabel Jankel) of the cutting edge and hugely popular transatlantic satirical television series, Max Headroom (1987-1988). Martin and Jankel went on to co-direct Denis Quaid and Meg Ryan in D.O.A (1998) before being offered the chance of a lifetime directing the video game adaptation of Super Mario Bros. (1993). Unfortunately the film failed to impress critics, bombed at the box office and became renowned for its tumultuous behind-the-scenes exploits. Now re-released on DVD and Bu-ray (you can read our review here), we recently spoke with Morton about his experiences on the film.

Into the Woods: 6 things we 'wish' to see in the film version

6 November 2014 1:43 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Into the Woods has been crying out for a big screen adaptation since it launched on Broadway back in 1987.

With its combination of catchy songs, heartwarming moments, classic characters and pure fantasy, it is surprising that it has taken 27 years for a movie to be made. Despite winning several Tony Awards and revivals, it hasn't quite reached total mainstream status yet. That may be all about to change this Christmas thanks to the big screen adaptation.

In fact, a film version has been in the pipeline for over a decade. In the early 1990s, Columbia and Jim Henson Productions were developing a version starring the likes of Robin Williams, Goldie Hawn, Cher, Danny DeVito, Steve Martin and Roseanne Barr. A few years later, Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan and Susan Sarandon were attached.

After years of failed attempts, the project appears to be in good hands, as Chicago director Rob Marshall is behind the camera, »

Meg Ryan Boards Teen Comedy Fan Girl

23 October 2014 3:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s been some time since Meg Ryan has lit up the big screen in a comedy. After abandoning her 80s persona initiated by her now-synonymous role in When Harry Met Sally, the actress dove into darker projects around the early 2000s. To be honest, who wouldn’t want to star in a gritty Jane Campion drama in just your birthday suit? Still, that was some ten years back, and following a dabble in forgettable fare such as The Women and Serious Moonlight, Ryan could be in line to rekindle her cinematic career with Fan Girl.

Under the direction of Paul Jarrett, the film will apparently follow a by-the-numbers teen movie formula. The story is “about a 15-year-old post-Millennial teen who lives for making movies and idolizing her favorite band. Given only a few days to complete a final film project, she comes up with an idea that could bring her two passions together. »

Renée Zellweger made a rare public appearance Monday night at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards, and the Bridget Jones actress made headlines with her new look.

Renée Zellweger Steps Out With New Look

Zellweger, 45, stunned in a black dress from designer Carolina Herrera as she walked the red carpet with boyfriend, Doyle Bramhall, but it wasn’t her smart fashion choice that had everyone talking on Tuesday. Instead, fans were much more preoccupied by the fact that they found Zellweger almost unrecognizable.

Looking comfortable and relaxed together, Ryan, 52, and Mellencamp, 62, strolled through Manhattan's SoHo neighborhood, stopping by the Scholastic children's bookstore.

Are Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp rekindling their romance?!  The former couple, who split in late August after three years of dating, were spotted out and about in NYC together on Wednesday afternoon. The pair was snapped in the city's Soho neighborhood and immediately separated from each other upon discovering they were being photographed.  Ryan, 52, looked relaxed and casual in a patterned top, jeans and avaitor shades while Mellencamp, 63, rocked a navy pull-over and blue jeans as he puffed on a cigarette.
