Hollywood owes Emily Blunt a major one. The award-winning actress, 31, saved the day earlier this year, when she stepped in to rescue a legend. Blunt dished to David Letterman on Tuesday, Nov. 25, about the time that she came to the aid of none other than Meryl Streep. The two stars appear in the upcoming big-screen adaptation of Into the Woods together, and things took a hairy turn during one day of shooting. "I did save her life," Blunt told Letterman of Streep, 65. "We were rehearsing [...] »
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. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.

Meryl Streep is widely regarded as the best actress of her generation. In fact anyone who wants to argue with her credentials will have to debate with three Academy Awards that have her name etched on the bottom. But we have Emily Blunt to thank for the fact that Meryl Streep is still around to show off her talents, because she saved her Into The Woods co-star.s life. Emily Blunt relived Meryl Streep.s brush with death, which occurred while the pair shot Into The Woods, during her appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman. I.ll leave it to the effortlessly witty and charming gal to tell her heroic tale. "We were rehearsing a scene where she is playing the witch and she is supposed to jump on the table with the cape and everything. And I just saw this thing happen in slow motion. You know »

It's turning out to be another great year for Tilda Swinton. In February, "The Grand Budapest Hotel" premiered to raves at the Berlin Film Festival and made a ton of money in the months following. Cannes 2013 player "Only Lovers Left Alive" gained more critical traction as it continued to play around the world, eventually earning Swinton a surprise Best Female Lead Independent Spirit Award nomination. She filmed a key role in Judd Apatow's new Amy Schumer comedy "Trainwrecked," set for theaters in 2015, and re-teamed with old buddy George Clooney and the Coen brothers for the comedy "Hail Caesar!," which is currently filming and scheduled to debut in 2016. Perhaps most importantly, her performance in Bong Joon-ho's "Snowpiercer" finally saw the light of day stateside. Following a summer 2013 debut in Bong's native South Korea, the post-apocalyptic thriller was released in most of the world beginning in January and eventually found its »

Los Angeles — A week ago the film world lost one of the masters, legendary director Mike Nichols. Naturally the news sent a shockwave through the tight-knit community as Nichols' reach was pretty deep, the lives he had touched, and certainly, the careers he had affected. One of them was Al Pacino. Pacino starred in Nichols' adaptation of Tony Kushner's Broadway landmark "Angels in America" alongside great actors putting out great work, from Emma Thompson to Meryl Streep to Jeffrey Wright and more. Many of them, including Pacino, showed up on our assessment of the great performances Nichols managed to draw out in his 40-plus years in the business. "That happens in life, where we lose someone and it's palpable," Pacino told me recently. "Everybody feels it. There's a void there. They're gone. I loved him. I just loved him. He was probably the greatest director I ever worked with. »

As if Chris Pine wasn't handsome and charming enough, he's now showing off his impressive singing skills on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Friday.
"It's the acoustics, right?" he explains. "You just sound better in the shower. It's like your own music video, you know? You feel tremendous."
"I auditioned for [director] Rob Marshall in his living room, and he was very kind, noticed that I was very nervous and he and John -- his partner -- joined me in singing the song and made me feel more comfortable," he remembers »

It's that time of the year again. Which is to say that it isn't, yet, but it's close enough for us all to start speculating.
The 2015 Oscar nominations won't be announced until January, and thanks to the peculiarities of transatlantic release schedules, many of these contenders will barely have reached UK shores by then.
But we've now seen enough of the heavy-hitters to have a decent sense of how the next awards season is shaping up, and below we've rounded up our best guesses for the ten films that will dominate this year's Academy Awards.
Scroll al the way to the bottom to see our complete list of predictions for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress.
Bennett Miller's brooding true crime drama emerged as one of the year's earliest awards season frontrunners when it opened at Cannes, centring on »
Emily Blunt to the rescue! (If only that sentence applied to our lives, too.) The 31-year-old beauty stopped by the Late Show With David Letterman on Tuesday where she revealed how she saved her Into the Woods co-star Meryl Streep from taking a nasty fall on set...all while pregnant with daughter Hazel! "I did save her life," John Krasinski's wife said of the 65-year-old Oscar winner. "We were rehearsing a scene where she's playing the Witch and she's supposed to jump on the table with a cape and everything. And I just saw this thing happen in slow motion. You know when you see something awful happen and it's like the sound cuts out? Meryl Streep's foot got caught in »
The Homesman (2014)
Directed by Tommy Lee Jones
Ably independent yet desperate to nurture a family, Mary Bee Cuddy agrees to transport three women maddened by trauma across the country, enlisting the help of an aged, stubborn drifter along the way.
Despite what Tommy Lee Jones might want you to think, his new film, The Homesman, is definitely a western. And thank goodness, for the genre has been sorely lacking in reinforcements in recent years. It’s long been a favourite genre of mine, from Peckinpah to The Coen Brothers, Leone to Tarantino, but if you were to sieve through, say, the last ten years for decent entries (excluding hybrids like Cowboys & Aliens or an Aussie western like The Proposition), what have you got? True Grit? »

There are hazards to playing a witch, as Meryl Streep learned on the set of Into the Woods. Emily Blunt, who co-stars with Streep in the film, was a guest on the Late Show on Tuesday, where she told David Letterman that her quick reflexes during the musical's shoot saved the acting legend from serious injury. "Meryl Streep's foot got caught in her cape, and we just started to watch her slowly topple headfirst toward the concrete floor," Blunt said.

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Evangeline Lilly showed up on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in this odd Mad Hatter circus type outfit. As Jimmy asked, "What the hell are you wearing?" It's a costume tied to her "Squickerwonkers" children's book. She wrote this story when she was 14. Evangeline is so bubbly and fun but, man, she is unrecognizable as Kate from "Lost" or Tauriel from "The Hobbit." Guess that's an actress for you! Jimmy said Evangeline had previously mentioned retiring from acting, and she did retire, but Peter Jackson called her out of retirement for "The Hobbit." (Don't worry, she does know that Tauriel was not actually in the book, that part is just a »

The Gotham Independent Film Awards will benefit from an unprecendented dosage of star power during its annual dinner at Cipriani Wall Street on Monday.
The celebration of arthouse films has tapped Uma Thurman as its host, according to the show’s backer the Independent Film Project.
The Gothams also unveiled an A-list roster of presenters, including Meryl Streep, Jake Gyllenhaal, Scarlett Johansson, Hilary Swank, Marisa Tomei, Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Amy Schumer and Catherine Keener.
As awards season continues to get more cutthroat, it’s a sign that the studios now view the Gothams, which started 24 years ago as a low-key (and celebrity-less) affair, as one of the first stops on the campaign trail.
The show added a best actor and actress category last year, which upped the ante and allowed for it to better compete with the more star-studded Independent Spirit Awards, held the day before the Oscars in Santa Monica. »

Meryl Streep is the queen of award season in Hollywood, and now she's receiving special honors in Washington DC, too. On Monday, the actress was one of the 19 Americans presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian honor given to those who made remarkable contributions to the country in their particular field. During the presentation ceremony, President Obama joked around with Meryl, saying, "I think this is like the third or fourth award Meryl's gotten since I've been in office, and I've said it publicly: I love Meryl Streep. I love her. Her husband knows I love her. Michelle knows I love her. There's nothing either of them can do about it." Stevie Wonder also received the honor, and Obama remarked that Stevie's Talking Book album was the first he bought with his own money. The full list of honorees includes Ethel Kennedy, author Isabel Allende, journalist Tom Brokaw, »
