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…
“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 »

As with overalls, crop tops and scrunchies, denim-on-denim is the latest retro style to make a comeback! Miranda Kerr rocked a modern take on the '90s trend on July 21 in New York City. The Australian supermodel, 31, wore the 7 for All Mankind Hidden Placket button down in Medium Rich Indigo with the brand's Super High Waist Skinny in Super Heritage Stretch wash. She kept the accessories to a minimum except for leopard ankle-toe heels. Kim Kardashian and Emily Blunt have also successfully pulled off the bluesy [...] »

The Wrap has reported that the currently untitled return of director Cameron Crowe (Vanilla Sky, Almost Famous) has been pushed back from it’s original Christmas Day release until the middle of next spring. And while it may seem like a downer, it sounds like Sony, who are distributing the movie, have made the right choice considering the competition it faced in the Us over Christmas.
In the Us, the film was originally set to go head-head-to-head with a glut of wide, and potential hit, films. Disney’s big film for the festive season, an adaptation of musical Into the Woods, starring Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt and Chris Pine was arguably the biggest obstacle.
Other obsticles included Angelina Jolie-directed Unbroken, cult-comedy sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2 and Tim Burton’s Big Eyes, which begins it’s limited release on the same day, but will still draw in the crowds. »

Can Edge Of Tomorrow finally become a big hit when it lands on disc? We find out in October...
By distance one of the best blockbusters of summer 2014, Doug Liman's Edge Of Tomorrow did not marry up critical acclaim to box office gold. Believe some, and this is an instance of where a movie star distracted from a film, rather than aided it.
A pity, because Tom Cruise's performance in Edge Of Tomorrow is one of his best - and Emily Blunt is excellent too - but the film hasn't yet crossed $100m at the Us box office, and stands at $350m worldwide. Given that it cost $178m to make, before marketing and distribution costs, it's going to have to do some serious business on DVD and Blu-ray to get powerful studio people interested in making more films of its ilk.
Still, at least we know when to expect the disc now. »
There are a lot of "what ifs" in the movie business. There are so many options when it comes to casting actors to play characters in movies. Superhero films are huge right now, and I love most of the actors that studios have cast to play these badass characters. Christian Bale as Batman, Andrew Garfield aa Spider-Man, Henry Cavill as Superman, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man are just a few of many. But these characters could have easily been played by other actors. It's hard to imagine that now since we're already invested in what's in front of our eyes.
I've come up with a list of actors who almost played some of these superheroes. You may already know about some of the close calls on the list, you may not, but when I was researching for this article there were a few things I didn't know before, »
