That's Johnny Depp. He's doing a weirdo thing again.
Some of us have been anxiously awaiting the film adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods, and Disney has given us our first look at the movie, dumping ten stills from the film on an unsuspecting internet. We've seen set photos, but these are the first stills from the actual movie. We are hoping it will be awesome, and judging from these, it will at least look good.
Fans of the musical have been worried that the movie is overly Disneyfied since Sondheim reportedly told arts educators that at least one important song and story point had been cut and that Disney had objected to another storyline and changed an important death. The original stage musical is pretty dark and chockfull of innuendo. He later released a statement calling it a “faithful adaptation of the show” and “a first-rate movie, »

The difference between a cow and a bean is a bean can begin an adventure, and the differences between the stage version of Into the Woods and the Rob Marshall movie version appear to be dust, mist, smokiness. People has some of the first stills from the upcoming film, and it ... you know, looks like a fairy tale.Here's Emily Blunt as the Baker's Wife and James Corden as the Baker. Corden again and Meryl Streep in full witch regalia. Time to root through some rutabaga. Lucy Punch, Christine Baranski, and Tammy Blanchard. It's your first big decision, Anna Kendrick as Cinderella. The choice isn't easy to make. Mackenzie Mauzy plays Rapunzel, but is probably best known for The Bold and the Beautiful. Chris Pine plays Cinderella's Prince. Shimmering and lovely and sad. Corden and Lilla Crawford, who recently played Annie on Broadway. And Johnny Depp as the barely »

Very soon Disney will release the first trailer for their adaptation of fairytale mash-up stage musical Into the Woods, but in the meantime, we finally get some more first look photos to join the singular glimpse at the film that featured Meryl Streep as an ugly witch. This time there's photos of Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Chris Pine as her prince, Johnny Depp as the the Wolf, James Corden as the baker, Emily Blunt as the baker's wife, and many more. Could this inspire the return of live-action musicals at The House of Mouse? It's about time they ad a bit of a revival since once being a big part of the studio's history. Here's the new photos from Rob Marshall's Into the Woods from People and Ropes of Silicon: Into the Woods is directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago, Nine, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) based on »

New pictures from Disney's Into the Woods have been unveiled.
Director Rob Marshall's movie is based on a hit stage musical, and blends together the story of a childless couple with the Grimm fairytales.
The Baker and his wife encounter these storybook characters on their journey to break the evil witch's curse.
He later clarified those remarks to insist that he thinks the movie version is "first rate" and that the atmosphere among the filmmakers has been »
Disney and director Rob Marshall are bringing one of Stephen Sondheim's classic musicals to life on the big screen this Christmas with Into the Woods, which intertwines the plots of several Grimm Brothers fairy tales, such as Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Rapunzel and many more.
Today, we have nine brand new photos which give us our first look at Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), The Big Bad Wolf (Johnny Depp), The Baker (James Corden) and The Baker's Wife (Emily Blunt), Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Cinderella's mother (Christine Baranski) and stepsisters (Lucy Punch and Tammy Blanchard), Prince Charming (Chris Pine), the Witch (Meryl Streep) and Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy), along with commentary from director Rob Marshall and actress Emily Blunt.
So far we’ve only had a real look at Disney’s version of Stephen Sondheim’s Into The Woods via that very early shot of Meryl Streep as the Witch and a slight controversy when it was announced that parts from the original have been rewritten, or will be approached differently.
Saying that, those parts have actually been taken on by Sondheim himself with some major events changed and rumours of a new song instead – if you know the play then click here for full info! Co-written by James Lapine, Into The Woods is actually one of the few musicals I know well and although I’m also a bit confused by the changes, this is Disney and so although it will be dark, I’m guessing they can’t make it too excessively morbid without losing a huge target audience.
Anyway, as I’m digressing, today we’ve »

Walt Disney Pictures has released a batch of images from the upcoming musical adaptation of Into the Woods, which is directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago) and stars James Corden (One Chance) and Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow) as a baker and his wife who head out into the woods to confront a witch, bumping into a collection of famous fairy tale characters on their travels. Take a look…
“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. »

We’ve seen plenty of live-action fairy tales hit the big screen in recent years, but most of those movies are content to include tell just one story. Rob Marshall‘s upcoming musical Into the Woods mashes them all together. The first Into the Woods images show James Corden and Emily Blunt as a baker and his […]

After a bit of back and forth by Stephen Sondheim over the changes made to his musical "Into The Woods" for Disney's big screen, star-studded version, he's ultimately behind the "first-rate" production, and now the studio can push on with promoting the film. And today they've dropped a handful of new images to take you into the alternate fairy tale world you'll experience later this year. Featuring Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, Tracey Ullman, Lucy Punch and many, many more, "Into The Woods" turns the stories you thought you knew right upside down. The characters—The Wolf, Cinderella, Jack, Rapunzel, and more—are not quite wholesome, and the reconfigured tales are a bit darker and more twisted (but on this side of being family friendly we'd wager). Still, it's imaginative source material and it gives director Rob Marshall a lot to play with. »

Walt Disney Pictures has released new photos from director Rob Marshall's Into the Woods, hitting theaters this Christmas and starring Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, Lilla Crawford, Daniel Huttlestone, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski, MacKenzie Mauzy, Billy Magnussen, Tammy Blanchard, Lucy Punch, Richard Glover, Frances de la Tour, Simon Russell Beale, Joanna Riding and Annette Crosbie. »
Disney will be taking a pretty big risk this December when it releases Into the Woods, a star-studded adaptation of the beloved but tricky Stephen Sondheim musical. Obviously, some of the racier aspects of the original play – like, say, the sexual tension between Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford in this adaptation) and the hungry Wolf (Johnny Depp) – have been sanitized, but Into the Woods, which clumps together classic fairy tales, seems like a bit of a tougher sell than something like Les Misérables. However, the all-star cast should help it find an audience.
Today, eleven new images from Into the Woods have arrived online ahead of the upcoming first trailer for the musical. In the shots, we get glimpses of Crawford’s Red Riding Hood, Depp’s Wolf and many others. In particular, the shots make me excited to see what Depp, known for disappearing into his characters, does »

A batch of new Into the Woods images from director Rob Marshall’s (Chicago) feature film adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical has landed online. The Disney production stars James Corden (Begin Again) and Emily Blunt as a Baker and his wife who venture into the woods to confront the witch responsible for putting a curse on the childless couple. Along the way, they run into a number of familiar fairy tale characters. Today’s new images reveal quite a few of these, including Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Johnny Depp as the Big Bad Wolf, and Chris Pine as Prince Charming. It’s an absolutely stacked cast, and Marshall had everyone sing live on set, so it should be interesting to see the final result come together this Christmas. With these images debuting today, I imagine a first trailer is right around the corner. Hit the jump to check out »

Disney has been making a run at live action adaptations of their classic animated fairy tales, but the Rob Marshall musical is going to be something a little different. Taking classic characters like Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood, Into The Woods is a musical from Stephen Sondheim that combines all of those tales into an interconnected experience. To date we have seen just a sole image of Meryl Streep as a witch but now the studio has revealed several more that showcase actors like »

I was originally planning on waiting to take another look at the Golden Globe awards and my predictions for that precursor until the summer was over, but with the festival announcements in full swing, it seems like a nice time to approach these again. Next week brings new Oscar predictions on my part (also informed by the New York and Toronto Film Festival announcements), so this is a good way to bide our time until then. There’s certainly a bit of a separation between the two, so it’s a far cry from the same sort of predictions, as you’ve probably already gathered by now. The Globes and the Oscars are very different animals, to say the least. You can argue about the actual impact that the former has on the latter, but at the very bare minimum, it influences perception, so it must be reckoned with to some degree. »
