Disney's upcoming musical "Into the Woods" boasts an all-star cast, but Oscar-magnet Meryl Streep takes center stage in a new poster for the film, inviting viewers to take a trip into those dark, spooky, wonderful woods.

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 »

Tiff 14: ‘Shrew’s Nest’ and ‘Spring’ tackle the complex nature of femininity and love, in their own twisted ways

7 September 2014 6:00 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Spring

Written by Justin Benson

Directed by Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead

USA, 2014

Shrew’s Nest  (Musarañas)

Written by Juanfer Andrés

Directed by Juanfer Andrés and Esteban Roel

Spain, 2014

Over the years, Tiff’s Midnight Madness programme has lost some of its grit. Once upon a time, a film as bodacious as Shrew’s Nest would have graced its lineup. Now, the Vanguard programme seems to have stepped up to take its place. While Madness highlights trendier, more easily digestible content, Vanguard takes on the more obscure. Sexy, gritty, dirty, and horrific, Vanguard’s content is far more outlandish than its older, now slightly more restrained cousin. Odd when you consider that both programmes are curated by the jovial horror fanatic Colin Geddes.

Enter two of the shining stars of Tiff’s 2014 roster – Juanfer Andrés and Esteban Roel’s Shrew’s Nest, and Justin Benson and Aaron Moorhead’s Spring. »

Will we see Neil Gaiman's 'Hansel & Gretel' on the big screen?

5 September 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) - Even as a "Sandman" movie takes its first steps at Warner Bros. and "American Gods" moves from HBO to Starz, an adaptation of another Neil Gaiman book is heading into development. Variety reports that Juliet Blake, who partnered with Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey to produce "The Hundred-Foot Journey," has acquired the film rights to "Hansel & Gretel," the forthcoming reimagining of the Brothers Grimm tale by Gaiman and illustrator Lorenzo Mattotti. "For me, retelling 'Hansel and Gretel' was a way of telling an old tale in a way that made it immediate and true, and about us, now," Gaiman said in a statement. "It reminds us of how paper thin civilization really is. It’s about hunger, and about families." "Hansel & Gretel" will be published Oct. 28 by Toon Books. Gaiman’s earlier works "Coraline" and "Stardust" have already been adapted for the big screen. Like the latter, »

Neil Gaiman's Hansel & Gretel to Get Big Screen Treatment

5 September 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Neil Gaiman has written his own version of the classic Grimm fairytale Hansel & Gretel. It hasn't even been published yet, but the feature film rights have already been acquired. They were picked up by Juliet Blake, who recently teamed up with Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey to produce the wonderful film The Hundred-Foot Journey.

The beautifully gloomy artwork you see here was done for the book by artist Lorenzo Mattotti, and it has been described as "a stunning book capturing the terror and longing found in the classic fairy tale: at once as familiar as a dream and as evocative as a nightmare".

I would love to see an animated film in this dark style of art, but the plan is to do it live-action, which is fine. Gaiman had this to say in a statement:

"I’m thrilled and delighted to be working with Juliet Blake to bring Hansel and Gretel »

Neil Gaiman's Graphic Novel 'Hansel & Gretel' Getting Film Adaptation

4 September 2014 4:47 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Juliet Blake, producer of The Hundred-Foot Journey, is bringing Neil Gaiman's graphic novel Hansel & Gretel to the big screen. As the title suggests, the graphic novel is based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale.

Perhaps the Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters didn't leave you with much appetite for this fairy tale, but something tells us that this adaptation will be a lot different. After all, Gaiman is the author of works like Coraline and Stardust, which have successful adaptions.

Illustrated by Lorenzo Mattotti and to be released in October, Hansel & Gretel follows the story of a brother and sister who discover a candy house that's actually a trap for kids set up by a wicked witch. The adaptation will be live-action.

Gaiman said in a press release that "retelling Hansel and Gretel was a way of telling an old tale in a way that made it immediate and true, and about us, »

Steven Spielberg Teaming With Neil Gaiman For A Hansel And Gretel Movie

4 September 2014 11:18 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In 2013, Gary Sanchez Productions brought us Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, an R-rated take on the classic fairy tale about lost children drawn to a cabin made of candy. Though critically scorned (for the most part), we're awaiting a sequel from this Jeremy Renner/Gemma Arterton vehicle. But Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters 2 could face stiff competition thanks to Steven Spielberg. Variety reports Steven Spielberg, Oprah Winfrey and Juliet Blake are teaming up to develop a live-action Hansel and Gretel movie. But rather than pulling inspiration from Brothers Grimm tale, this producing trio will be adapting an upcoming graphic novel penned by celebrated writer Neil Gaiman. His Hansel and Gretel boasts ink illustrations from fine artist Lorenzo Mattotti, and it's set to hit bookshelves on October 28th. While Spielberg's involvement will score the pic headlines, it was Juliet Blake who got the ball rolling by purchasing Hansel and Gretel's movie rights »
