25 February 2015 5:53 AM, PST | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Into the Woods is hitting on Blu-Ray March 24th, and this one has a lot of great bonuses. Of course, it’s to be expected from Disney, but beyond that, this is one that doesn’t even need a lot of bonuses. Check our Into the Woods review here for the full report on the film itself.

Among the bonuses are a commentary track, several behind-the-scenes featurettes, and a look at the cast.

Not only was this a really great movie (and I’m no huge musical fan), but it’s one that, like most things Disney, is going to go into heavy rotation.

Check out all the details below.

Are Meryl Streep’s Oscar nominations bad for other actresses in the industry?

21 February 2015 9:49 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thomas Roach on whether Meryl Streep’s Oscar nominations are bad for other actresses in the industry…

Tomorrow is the Academy Awards, which is seen as the most prestigious and important award show for the industry. The Oscars also cause some outrage, as many deem it too political. To win an Oscar you really just schmooze at Hollywood parties and get members to vote for you, it seems. The award show has on occasion given the most deserving person the Oscar, but there are many other times when it has not.

One nomination that surprised me this year is Meryl Streep for her role in Into The Woods. Streep currently has three Oscar wins for Kramer vs. Kramer, Sophie’s Choice and The Iron Lady, with a further sixteen nominations on top of this. I wonder if her many nominations have been damaging to other actresses in the industry. Streep »

Oscars 2015: Fast Facts and Stats

20 February 2015 8:04 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

The Oscars are almost here.

In anticipation of the 87th Academy Awards on Feb. 22, here is a breakdown of some fast facts and statistics we’ve gathered. Click the links below for more information:

Best Picture

Of the 86 films to win best picture, 36 (42 percent) have won without procuring a single Oscar in the acting categories. Only one film has ever won the DGA, SAG and PGA Awards and not gone on to win the best picture Oscar, and that was Apollo 13 19 years ago. Four of the past 14 best picture winners are based on actual people and events, two of which won last year and the year before, and three others were inspired by real events. Birdman joins a number of Oscar-nominated films that center on performers or feature performance elements. Selma is the 15th race-related film to land a best picture nomination.

Interview – Wamg Talks To Kingsman: The Secret Service Composer Matthew Margeson

12 February 2015 6:41 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

If there’s one film you need to see this weekend, it’s Kingsman: The Secret Service. It’s funny, it’s fast-paced and it’s one insane, entertaining experience. Catch this one in the theater and with a crowd!

Based upon the acclaimed comic book and directed by Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men First Class), Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.

Composers Henry Jackman (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and Matthew Margeson score the spy action adventure comedy. This is the second collaboration between Jackman and Margeson, who had worked previously on Kick Ass 2. The duo supplied the soundtrack for the star-studded Kingsman with Oscar winners Colin Firth and Michael Caine, Oscar nominee Samuel L. Jackson, and newcomer Taron Egerton. »

‘Into the Woods’ Artists Meld Expertise in Production Design and Costumes

4 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The fact that production designer Dennis Gassner and costume designer Colleen Atwood both hail from the American Northwest probably had little to do with the fact that they were both hired for “Into the Woods.” But it turned out to be a very smart idea.

“Whenever you meet someone you’ll be working with, it’s like a date — you have to find a connection somewhere to start the relationship,” says Gassner (who shares his Oscar nomination with set decorator Anna Pinnock). “We both had these roots that were close to nature; this movie took me back to my youth and where I grew up, which was basically in the woods.”

The pair had worked together before, on 2003’s “Big Fish.” On “Woods” they had to trust one another to be of like mind without much direct face-to-face contact. Gassner and his team were literally among trees for a good portion of the prep. »

Variety Hosts First Artisan Awards at Santa Barbara Film Festival

4 February 2015 12:58 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While many showbiz veterans are nervous about rapidly-evolving digital technology, the eight recipients of Variety’s first Artisan Awards were unanimous in saying that the changes offer more opportunities than threats.

At a Tuesday session during the Santa Barbara Film Festival, production designer Suzie Davies said change is inevitable, so she embraces it, with makeup artist Bill Corso said he sees the innovations as an added tool, rather than a replacement for traditional methods.

Variety had previously announced the recipients of the first Artisan Awards, saluting outstanding work in 2014 films. They are cinematography, Dion Beebe, “Into the Woods”; costume design, Steven Noble, “The Theory of Everything”; editing, Sandra Adair, “Boyhood”; makeup and hair, Corso and Kathrine Gordon, “Foxcatcher”; production design, Davies, “Mr. Turner”; song, Shawn Patterson, “Everything is Awesome” from “The Lego Movie”; sound mixing and editing, Richard King and Mark Weingarten, “Interstellar”; and visual effects, Joe Letteri, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes »

The tenuous nature of being an early Academy Award frontrunner

27 January 2015 1:06 PM, PST | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

It’s hardly a brand new sentiment to express, but you really can never script Oscar season. No matter how you think the awards race is going to go, at least to some degree it always turns out different. This year is obviously no exception, so today I wanted to take a look at how the various frontrunner have changed throughout the season. In some cases, we’ve seen top tier contenders hold strong all year, but the frontrunners have shifted for sure. In a few instances, the early favorites didn’t wind up nominated at all. That’s just how the season goes. We’re deep into phase two now, so it’s a perfect time to look back at what things were like at the start of 2014. Obviously, you never truly know what’s going to happen during an Oscar race, especially when you start out in the »

Lost in the Awards Rush: Nine

27 January 2015 8:00 AM, PST | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

"Lost in the Awards Rush" is a new weekly series Slackerwood is running during the awards season, to suggest lesser-known but excellent alternatives to popular frontrunners for big movie awards.

Upon its Broadway debut in 1987, Into the Woods was praised as an innovative, dark, bold and musically astounding work that, to this day, remains unequaled. Naturally, a movie version had to follow of this re-imagining of classic fairy tales and what happens after "happily ever after." Though there were plans for a Rob Reiner-directed movie adaptation featuring Cher, Goldie Hawn, Elijah Wood and Robin Williams in the early '90s, that sadly fell apart -- the notion of bringing a project so well regarded and towering in both story and scope seemed virtually impossible.

Enter Rob Marshall, who successfully brought Chicago (2002) (another seemingly un-adaptable Broadway sensation) to the screen and had set out to work similar wonders with what »

Oscar-nominated 'Into the Woods' costume designer says bondage was right for Rapunzel

26 January 2015 10:33 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Over the past two decades, and the last 15 years in particular, Colleen Atwood has cemented herself as one of Hollywood's leading costume designers. She's earned three Oscars and is continually sought after by many leading directors to design threads for a variety of time periods and genres. With "Into the Woods," she has once again reunited with Rob Marshall for an inimitable blend of period and fantasy. HitFix recently spoke the Atwood, who picked up her 11th Oscar nomination for the film earlier this month. Read through the back and forth below. "Into the Woods" is now playing in theaters. *** HitFix: You clearly had to create many iconic characters for this film. Is that intimidating at all? Colleen Atwood: It was totally intimidating and not only creating them but creating them together in the same movie! Like, everybody is iconic, but it sort of flowed once I started. I started with the witch. »
