Watch: Exclusive ‘Into The Woods’ Easter Egg! Own It May 18th

27 March 2015 5:13 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Who wants an early Easter bonus feature from the upcoming Home Entertainment release of Disney’s Into The Woods? Well, join us as we head into this entertaining exclusive behind-the-scenes clip before it’s released on May 18th on Blu-ray and DVD.

For those who only know a little, Into The Woods is a modern twist on the Brothers Grimm fairy tales, entwining  the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. The humourous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.

This Week in Blu-ray: Us Edition – The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, Unbroken, Into the Woods and more

23 March 2015 7:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Senior Staff Writer Scott Davis looks at this week’s big Blu-ray releases in the Us…

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

All roads have led to this point, as they say. The final film in both The Hobbit Trilogy and J.R.R. Tolkien adaptations (at least for now), director Peter Jackson bids a fond farewell to Hobbits, Orcs and Wizards alike. Martin Freeman, Ian e, Richard Armitage, Evangeline Lily and Orlando Bloom return amongst the stellar cast, as Bilbo and friends face the final battle to save Middle-earth from the deadly Smaug.

You read what Flickering Myth contributor Alfie Nobes made of the final chapter here.

Unbroken

While it failed to make as much of an impact along the awards season over the last few months, Angelina Jolie’s excellent sophomore directorial effort made over $160 million »

Into The Woods – The Blu Review

23 March 2015 9:36 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“I was raised to be charming, not sincere.”

When Michael Haffner reviewed Disney’s Into The Woods here at We Are Movie Geeks, he wrote “.….Into The Woods soars when it focuses on the music and character development. The multiple stories occasionally slow down the film, and the fact that some aren’t entirely given a clear resolution speak to how overstuffed it often feels.” (read all of Michael’s review Here).

Unfamiliar with the stage version, I recognized Into The Woods’ flaws but enjoyed it for the most part. It performed well at the Bo but wasn’t well-received by critics last Christmas. Perhaps most disappointed were people waiting for a more typical Disney story with perfect adorable characters expressing themselves through singing. It’s not a movie for the whole family like we all are used to from the studio. I was looking for more from Johnny Depp, »

Exclusive: Anna Kendrick Explains the ‘Terrifying’ Feeling of Making ‘Into the Woods’

20 March 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

For those who got to see Rob Marshall’s adaptation of Into the Woods know it’s a magical experience watching Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, and Anna Kendrick bring these fabled characters to life on the big screen.

The film is also a big deal for any Stephen Sondheim fan. The prolific composer -- responsible for Company, Into the Woods, Sweeney Todd, and other shows -- has been making his mark on musical theater for over 40 years.

And considering the pressure of living up to Sondheim’s legacy and doing his Broadway musical justice, you can’t blame the film’s cast for being stressed -- especially Anna Kendrick, who performed an updated version of “On the Steps of the Palace.”

“It was great and terrifying to be in the recording studio and have Stephen Sondheim knock on the door in between takes and »

Journeying Into the Costumes of Into the Woods

9 March 2015 12:46 AM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

Into the Woods opened on Broadway in 1987, with the music and lyrics written by Stephen Sondheim and the book by James Lapine. It is Sondheim’s most performed musical and one of his best known works. The story combines familiar characters from childhood fairy tales such as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and the ubiquitous Witch, and explores their journeys to get their wish, as well as the negative consequences of the small dishonesties committed by each character to get what they want. As the witch sings, “Told a little lie/Stole a little gold/Broke a little vow/Did you?/Had to get your prince/Had to get your cow/Had to get your wish/Doesn’t matter how.” As the story unfolds, the traditional dichotomies of good and evil, and our expectations of each character, are shaken.

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.
