Meryl Streep to Her Into the Woods Costar Billy Magnussen: "I Got You This F--king Part"

13 hours ago | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

It pays to be on Meryl's good side! She may play an evil witch in the upcoming film adaptation of the Broadway musical Into the Woods, but Meryl Streep is far from wicked. In fact, the Oscar winner and on-screen legend played a part in helping her costar Billy Magnussen land the role of Rapunzel's Prince.  "I remember the first day coming into rehearsal," Magnussen, 29, told the New York Post, laughing. "Meryl was like, ‘Listen, I want you to know, I got you this f - - king part.'" It [...] »

'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 »

Duvall received the festival’s Career Achievement Award in 2011. Prior recipients of the Icon Award include Michael Douglas and Meryl Streep.

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 »

Best of Late Night TV: Orlando Bloom Wants 'Hobbit' Porno, Amy Adams Struggles at 'Holiday Flip Cup' (Video)

18 December 2014 11:10 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

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.

Amy Adams played "Holiday Flip Cup" with Jimmy Fallon on "The Tonight Show" on Thursday, and ... she did her best. She's hosting "Saturday Night Live" this weekend, with One Direction as the musical guest, so hopefully Amy is better at hosting than playing drinking games. But her little "ack!" sound when things go wrong is pretty cute.

The amazing Nick Offerman, also a guest on "The Tonight Show," read a "shortened, more casual version" of ''Twas the Night Before Christmas." Love his Christmas sweater. Honestly.

Jimmy Kimmel - and yes he really wore that red Christmas suit - welcomed Mel Brooks, who didn't want to sit in the chair next to the desk. »

‘Into the Woods’ is more shrill than charming

18 December 2014 9:02 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Into the Woods

Written by James Lepine, based on a musical by Stephen Sondheim

Directed by Rob Marshall

USA, 2014

What is there to say about a film that is destined to succeed in spite of its weak ambitions and generic form? Rob Marshall’s newest project, Into the Woods, has been granted a Christmas Day release. which will no doubt pay off bigtime for the director and Disney Studios. It has all the ingredients of success: it is based off an incredibly popular Stephen Sondheim musical, it features a fairy-tale motif, and it has an all-star cast. It also cashes in on the fact that musicals are once again a highly commercial prospect, and while innovation within the genre seems to be at a virtual stand-still, audiences will flock to see nearly any Hollywood adaptation of a popular Broadway musical. More shrill than charming, Into the Woods shares more in »

Craig Ferguson's The Late Late Show successor James Corden was thrown into the hot seat on the talk show Wednesday night, giving many viewers their first real glimpse at the British comedian.

News: Craig Ferguson Welcomes Incoming Host

"Even this is making my chest very tight!" Corden joked while facing a barrage of questions from Ferguson.

For those unfamiliar with Corden, he is a 36-year-old actor/writer/producer/singer, who is co-starring in Disney's Into the Woods, out Christmas Day.

Born in the U.K., Corden became a star on British television in 2000 when he starred in the U.K. series Fat Friends until 2005.
