‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2′ Loses Its Director

9 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Fairytales getting turned into movies are almost a dime a dozen these days. Already on the horizon are sequels and prequels to Alice in Wonderland and Snow White and the Huntsman, as well as new versions of Cinderella, The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan and The Jungle Book. So when a film like Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters comes along, which takes the original Brothers Grimm story and spins it in a completely new direction, it’s kind of a big deal.

While the film loosely based on the well-known German fairytale didn’t do so well domestically, it ended up captivating audiences overseas with its guts-and-glory approach and grossed $200 million worldwide at the box office. Needless to say, after earning four times ...

'Game of Thrones' Star Peter Dinklage Joins 'The Thicket'

22 September 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Gianni Nunnari's Hollywood Gang announced today the development of Joe Lansdale's acclaimed crime thriller The Thicket, starring Peter Dinklage.

The film will be produced by Nunnari, along with Dinklage and his long time manager David Ginsberg, who will be producing through their newly formed production company. Shannon Gaulding, who works with Nunnari, will also serve as producer on the project.

The Thicket has been hailed as one of the best American crime novels to emerge in recent years. Set in tough, turbulent and feral East Texas in the early 20th century, this dark thriller follows the story of Jack, an innocent young man, who goes on an epic quest to rescue his sister after she has been kidnapped by a violent killer, Cut Throat Bill, and his gang. Jack enlists the help of a crafty bounty hunter named Shorty (Dinklage), a grave-digging alcoholic son of an ex-slave, and a street-smart prostitute. »

‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2′ Update; Script Has Been Finished

22 September 2014 8:17 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Funny it might seem, but Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters was one of the more successful Grimm fairy tale re-imaginings, having grossed more than four times its $50 million budget worldwide in theaters. It’s the only recent movie of that ilk that is set to receive a direct sequel in the foreseeable future (though Snow White and the Huntsman has a spinoff/prequel in the works).

Paramount has announced that Hansel & Gretel 2 is moving at a pace that (barring any unforeseen obstacles) should allow it to reach theaters by 2016. Hansel & Gretel writer/director Tommy Wikola, who’s got another sequel in Dead Snow 2 hitting theaters soon, has revealed that he’s handed over a finished Hansel & Gretel 2 script to the ...

Disney's Into The Woods - New Poster with Creepy Meryl Streep

21 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Disney released a new poster for their upcoming movie musical Into the Woods, which features a ghoulish looking Meryl Streep looking to haunt your nightmares. 

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, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them."

I've never seen the stage musical that this movie is based on, but I'm familiar with a couple of the songs. It looks like a decent movie, and it has an impressive cast that also includes Emily Blunt, James Corden, »

[Comic Execution] 9/19 – Hellraiser, The Storyteller, Tales Of Mr Rhee

19 September 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

I’m turning 30 in a few days. And you know, if I can be serious for a moment, this column right here that you’re reading? It feels like the most important thing I’ve ever done. Not because it has had an impact on sales, because I’m sure it hasn’t. What it has done is motivate me. Most of my creative endeavours are received with little fanfare and that’s fine but when life comes along and gets in the way of that work, I yield to more important things. But what’s happened with Comic Execution is that creators have been responding to my criticism and praise in very honest and human ways and that kind of recognition has pushed it to the top of my list of priorities, because I want to better understand how and why creators do what they do.

Meryl Streep Is A Creepy Witch In Maiden Poster For Disney’s Into The Woods

16 September 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the more left-field Oscar contenders heading into this year’s awards season is undoubtedly Disney’s musical fairytale, Into The Woods. It’s based on Stephen Sondheim’s atypical and indeed award-winning musical deconstruction of the titular tale, which weaves together a variety of renown fantasy heroes who unite against Meryl Streep’s spiteful witch.

Directed by Chicago’s Rob Marshall, the film is essentially a melting pot of the studio’s beloved characters from the Brothers Grimm catalogue, including Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Jack and the Beanstalk, who are all drawn together to face the aforementioned villain thanks to a loveable baker and his wife — played by James Corden and Emily Blunt, respectively.

What’s most impressive about Into The Woods, though, is it’s remarkable ensemble cast, which features the likes of Anna Kendrick, Johnny Deep as The Wolf, Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Pine and Tracey Ullman. »

Meryl Streep Dominates the New Poster for Into the Woods

16 September 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Disney's upcoming live-action musical, Into the Woods, based on a play of the same name has revealed an all new movie poster that features Meryl Streep's villainous Witch character front and center.  Come inside to check it out!

To be honest...this is just kind of a boring poster.  While it's menacing and shows off the danger that the Witch poses, with the snarly looking woods as well, it also does very little to attract people.  If I were to see this in the theater, I wouldn't automatically think, "I want to know more about this movie."  That's not to say that it's horrible by any means, it's just not all that exciting either.

Ranked: Every Summer Movie Season Since 1980 - Part 1

8 September 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Summer movie season is a magic time of year when Hollywood traditionally rolls out its most appealing merchandise. It’s true that some summer movie seasons are better than others. This is our ranking of all the summer movie seasons since 1980 from worst to best. 

On January 20th, 1975, Steven Spielberg and Universal Studios released Jaws. The movie landscape would be forever changed from that date. Jaws is widely credited as being the first blockbuster film because it was the first movie to make over $100 million (non-adjusted). The fact that the film had a meager $8 million budget meant that it was a huge cash cow for the studio and rocketed Spielberg to the the forefront of a new generation of filmmakers for a new era of movie mass-consumption. George Lucas and Spielberg followed up in 1977 with Star Wars, which became a sensational and very profitable hit. It helped to convince production »
