Blu Review: Into the Woods

3 April 2015 8:53 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Walt Disney Home Entertainment takes us on a dark and dazzling journey Into the Woods with this mashup of the many fairy tales they’ve so colorfully brought to the screen in animation form before. If you can imagine Once Upon a Time loaded with never-ending musical numbers you have a good idea what to expect from this impressive film. Besides a few spots where you know you’re on a movie set, audiences will no doubt get lost in the land of make-believe Director Rob Marshall transports you to. 

In Into the Woods, a baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) are childless as the result of the curse of a once-beautiful witch (Meryl Streep). Three days before the rise of a blue moon, they venture into the forest to find the ingredients that will reverse the spell and restore the witch's beauty: a milk-white cow, hair as yellow as corn, »

‘Avengers Grimm’ Review

31 March 2015 3:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Casper Van Dien, Lauren Parkinson, Lou Ferrigno, Milynn Sarley, Marah Fairclough, Rileah Vanderbilt, Elizabeth Peterson, Kimo Leopoldo, Henry Foster Brown, Jonathan Medina, Daniel Nemes | Written and Directed by Jeremy M. Inman

Sometimes you see a trailer for a movie and know it’s perfect for you… that was Avengers Grimm for me. So much so that I specifically hunted down a copy for review!

An off-the-wall mix of Grimm Fairy tale characters and superhero team-up movies which, frankly, should have been obvious given the title, Avengers Grimm is the latest film from the schlockmeisters The Asylum – you know, those folks behind such films as Transmorphers, Hercules Reborn, Sharknado and a myriad of other mockbusters, cash-ins and giant sea creature movies.

Like many and Asylum movie, the plot is relatively simple: when Rumpelstiltskin uses the Magic Mirror to escapes to the modern world taking Snow White with him and destroying the mirror in the process, »

Dwayne Johnson Hosts SNL: Watch Video of the Best and Worst Sketches

28 March 2015 11:39 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

It’s almost too easy to declare that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson “rocked” as host of this week’s Saturday Night Live — but that doesn’t mean such a statement would be inaccurate.

PhotosJohn Noble Recalls His Time on Fringe, 24, Sleepy Hollow and More

In fact, it says a lot about the Furious 7 star’s comedic chops that the evening’s worst sketches either gave him absolutely nothing to do (“Cooking With Paul”) or didn’t include him at all (“The Circus”).

Johnson proved so fearlessly committed to his punch lines that he even scored a few laughs »

And the Cannes line-up is…?

26 March 2015 4:05 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Gazing into the crystal ball, Screen rounds up its Cannes predictions.

With the unveiling of Cannes Film Festival’s Official Selection now exactly three weeks away buzz over the titles that Thierry Fremaux and his team will select for the 68th edition is hitting fever pitch.

Official teaser announcements have started to roll this week, led by the confirmation on Wednesday that George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road would premiere in an Out of Competition screening on May 14.

Earlier the week, Cannes unveiled its poster featuring Ingrid Bergman to mark the centenary of the late big screen’s birth and it was announced that Stig Bjorkman’s documentary Ingrid Bergman – In Her Own Words would show in Cannes Classics as part of the commemorations.

For the rest of the Official Selection, except perhaps the opening film which is traditionally revealed in advance, Cannes watchers will have to wait for the announcement press conference in Paris on April »

Cinderella review: A warm, fleet-footed fairytale

25 March 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Kenneth Branagh; Screenwriter: Chris Weitz; Starring: Lily James, Cate Blanchett, Richard Madden, Helena Bonham Carter, Stellan Skarsgård; Running time: 105 mins; Certificate: U

On the surface of it, Disney's decision to frontload their updated live-action Cinderella with a brand new Frozen short looks like a bad move. A large part of Frozen's appeal with critics (if not with kids) was its subversive treatment of familiar storybook tropes like "true love's kiss", where Princess Elsa's relationship with her estranged sister became the central focus and romance was an afterthought. Surely attaching Frozen Fever could only emphasise how creaky and regressive the Cinderella story now looks.

But of course, Cinderella has endured for a reason. Director Kenneth Branagh has a steady handle on both the wonder and the humanity of the story, which was originally set to be adapted by Never Let Me Go's Mark Romanek. Though an intriguing prospect, Romanek's »

Miramax Turning The Brothers Grimm Into TV Show

20 March 2015 5:33 PM, PDT | Boomtron | See recent Boomtron news »

Ehren Kruger of the film The Brothers Grimm is trying to turn it into a TV show. Miramax’s Executive Vice President of Film & TV, Zanne Devine opened up about how his company was seeking out the possibility. However, they were surprised by his pitch to them like Ehren did. Zanne claims that the possible series written by Ehren and produced by Daniel Bobker, will feature many of the classic characters from the world of The Brothers Grimm. Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm will be the main stars of the show, while relying on their wonderful characters. Here is what we know so far about the possible series.

The original stories the Brothers set out to collect were not for the faint of heart and we’ll be making a show that gets back to those origins and their cautionary, scary, thrilling spirit.

It sounds like it will certainly be an interesting show! »

Ehren Kruger Scripting Brothers Grimm TV Series

19 March 2015 5:11 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Fairy tales on telly? Nah, no-one wants to watch that, surely? Because we don’t already have Once Upon A Time, Grimm, Beauty And The Beast... Miramax clearly sees there’s an appetite for them, and has pressed Brothers Grimm screenwriter Ehren Kruger to develop and TV series based on the Terry Gilliam film. Putting something into development now, ten years after the movie, doesn’t exactly feel like striking the iron while it’s hot. But with the aforementioned series and various fairy-tale movies helping fuel interest, it’s perhaps not that surprising. Kruger will use the movie as an origin story launch pad for ongoing tales of Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm, who discover the supernatural stakes behind the folklore. The casting search will kick off once the elements are in place.“We reached out to Ehren Kruger and producing partner Daniel Bobker to see if they had any »

The Brothers Grimm, hampered by the Weinsteins, budget squabbles and post-production delays, isn’t the finest moment for any of the people involved, and especially not for director Terry Gilliam. But the film lives on as part of the Miramax library, and now the company is turning it into a Brothers Grimm TV series. Matt Damon probably […]

Terry Gilliam’s 2005 fantasy film The Brothers Grimm, which starred Matt Damon and the late Heath Ledger, is following in the footsteps of 12 Monkeys, Fargo and From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, now that Ehren Kruger has been tasked with penning a TV adaptation for Miramax.

Kruger, the prolific scribe behind The Ring and the last three Transformers films, wrote the script for the original movie and will build off that origin story for the series.

'The Brothers Grimm' Series In The Works Based On The Movie With Matt Damon And Heath Ledger

19 March 2015 9:53 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

You gotta feel a little bit for Terry Gilliam. First, SyFy turns "12 Monkeys" into a TV series without his input, and now the director's 2005 effort "The Brothers Grimm" is also headed to the small screen, but once again it looks like he won't be involved. Miramax has announced they've hired Ehren Kruger —who penned Gilliam's film as well as other "notable" works like the last three 'Transformers' movies— to create a TV series that will build off the origin story introduced in his screenplay for 'Grimm.' This new take will follow the swashbuckling adventures of brothers Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm, who discover startling mythological and supernatural stakes behind the folklore that swept 19th century Europe. Woo! As Gilliam's fans know, he famously clashed with the Brothers Weinstein during production, resulting in the firing of his cinematographer among other things. So perhaps this is a chance for Miramax to make the project they wanted. »
