Into the Woods, one of legendary composer Stephen Sondheim’s most acclaimed stage productions, is a modern twist on what happens when several beloved fairy tales cross paths with each other. It’s entertaining, funny and heart-breaking, all at once, with memorable music that explores themes of greed, ambition, loss, family, love, and the consequences of wishes. From director Rob Marshall (Chicago), the film stars Meryl Streep (“Witch”), Johnny Depp (“Wolf”), Emily Blunt (“Baker’s Wife”), James Corden (“Baker”), Anna Kendrick (“Cinderella”), Chris Pine (“Cinderella’s Prince”), Christine Baranski (“Stepmother”) and Tracey Ullman (“Jack’s Mother”). During a roundtable interview at the film’s L.A. press day, co-stars Emily Blunt, James Corden and Anna Kendrick talked about their preparation for this project, why doing a musical in on every actor’s bucket list, and their favorite Disney films growing up. Corden also talked about why he thinks there’s »

If there's one thing Ellen DeGeneres knows how to do well, it has to be making us laugh. Oh, and taking excellent selfies. Come on now, how can we forget that record-breaking picture from the 2014 Oscars?! When Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt and Anna Kendrick stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show Monday afternoon, the talk show host couldn't help but recreate a similar picture with the Into the Woods stars. "I brought my phone out because the selfie that we took at the Oscars, the whole idea was I was going to get a selfie with Meryl and everyone else jumped in," DeGeneres shared. "Meryl was hardly in the selfie." Don't think Streep didn't notice either. "I know. »

Anthony Delassandro kicks off this engaging profile of Emily Blunt thus: "As an actress from across the pond, [she] stood the risk of falling into the period film trap. Blunt did period earning a Golden Globe nom for her portrayal of Queen Victoria in 'The Young Victoria' but it’s her gutsiness and rawness that has allowed her to show off her range, playing everything from a stoner in 2008’s 'Sunshine Cleaning' to a gun-wielding militant in last summer’s 'Edge of Tomorrow.' This season, Blunt takes another leap with sublime ease: She shows the world that she can sing as the Baker’s Wife in Disney’s adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical 'Into the Woods.'"

It's been more than eight years since The Devil Wears Prada was released, so isn't it time for us to get more Andy and Miranda? In other words, when the heck will we see a sequel to the fashion flick? Emily Blunt, who played the Miranda's bitchy assistant Emily, tells me she's up for a Prada follow-up. "I would do it, but only if everyone did it," she says. "I don't know why it hasn't been done, but everyone's got to do it." Until then, we do get to see Blunt re-team with Meryl Streep in the big screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's iconic fairy tale musical, Into the Woods (in theaters on Christmas Day). If you didn't know Blunt could »

The original photo, which also included Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Angelina Jolie and more, became the most shared tweet of all time.

Emily Blunt seems to have been on the cusp of superstardom since she costarred with Meryl Streep in "The Devil Wears Prada," back in 2006. Since then, she's appeared in many interesting movies, more than a few of which have been would-be blockbusters (most recently, this summer's terrific sci-fi actioner "Edge of Tomorrow"), but she hasn't quite gotten there yet. That could all change with the Christmas Day release of "Into the Woods," a lavish, big-screen adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's beloved musical.
In the movie, Blunt plays The Baker's Wife opposite James Corden and, of course, Streep (playing the Witch), and she can really belt out the tunes. It's pretty impressive, especially given her ridiculously talented castmates, who include Chris Pine, Anna Kendrick, and Johnny Depp. We got on the phone and talked with her for a few minutes about what it was like venturing "Into the Woods, »

While many year-end lists simply focus on either the best or the worst, this feels like a good opportunity to take a look at a year-end aspect that seems to go overlooked: the things that we didn’t see coming. There’s an expectation that the new Christopher Nolan film is going to be eye-popping, that Transformers: Age of Extinction isn’t going to be particularly great, and that the latest effort from Wes Anderson will probably be immaculately crafted. But what about discovering that a loveable TV actor makes a seamless transition to becoming a movie star? Or that shameless, toy-centric studio cash-grab is actually a great movie? There were plenty of pleasant discoveries over these past 12 months, and after the jump, I run down the 10 best surprises of 2014. Emily Blunt Is a Badass Director Doug Liman’s sci-fi film Edge of Tomorrow is so good because it gives us something different. »

Sony continues to be the front headline of every news web since the brutal hack that revealed thousands of private e-mails and information. Many of these have been about Spider-man and the future of the franchise, one that seems bleak after the disaster that The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was. Shortly after that film was released, Sony announced plans for a Sinister Six movie directed by Drew Goddard and in a new set of leaked e-mails, Comic Book Movie has revealed a “wishlist” of possible actors to take on the roles.
The article reveals that Pascal and other Sony executives have discussed possible candidates for the film including Channing Tatum as Venom (something that might not happen since he is now set to play Gambit in the upcoming X-Men film, Apocalypse), Emily Blunt as Scorpia, Sean Penn as Doctor Octopus and Colin Firth as The Vulture. However, bear in mind that »

The ladies of “Into the Woods” stopped by “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” and host DeGeneres wasn’t shy in taking advantage of their musical talent.
“She’s so British and beautiful she still looks regal going ‘goo goo gah gah.’ She’s still, like, intimidating and statuesque,” Kendrick said of Blunt.

Chris Pine may be famous to most for his role as Captain Kirk in J.J. Abrams's rebooted "Star Trek" series (and, possibly to a lesser degree, as Jack Ryan in Paramount's attempted rejuvenation of that franchise), but lately he has been interested more in stretching his comedic side, in films like "Horrible Bosses 2," Joe Carnahan's "Stretch," and, most recently, Disney's lavish musical "Into the Woods," where he plays a Prince that is definitely not as charming as he ought to be.
He absolutely steals the show in "Into the Woods," which is a pretty impressive feat considering the high wattage movie stars she's surrounded by (including but not limited to Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt, James Corden, and Johnny Depp). During the post-screening Q&A, Pine was drawn to the character's "two-dimensionality," and when we sat down and talked with Pine, he opened up about what he was nervous about, »

While the fate of Sony’s Amazing Spider-Man franchise is very much up in the air right now, we do know that at one point, the studio was ready to move forward with both a Sinister Six and Venom spinoff. It’s unclear if they still plan to do so, what with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 being a bit of a bomb for them, but the projects are likely still being considered.
So far, no official casting has been confirmed, but the studio obviously has a wishlist of who they’d like to see bring these comic book characters to life. Now, thanks to some leaked Sony emails, we know who they have their eye on.
Drew Goddard, who is set to be behind the camera for Sinister Six, wanted Tom Hardy for Sandman and Emily Blunt for Scorpia. Meanwhile, studio head Amy Pascal liked Emilia Clarke and Elizabeth Olsen for Scorpia, »

According to leaked Sony Pictures emails from May, there were a lot of talks about the studio's "Sinister Six" film, which will be directed by Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) and focus on Spider-Man villains. Goddard mentioned that he wanted Tom Hardy to play Sandman, but there were also talks of making the villain the movie's comic relief, which is why actors like Danny McBride, Jonah Hill, Chris O'Dowd, Michael Pena, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke, and Sharlto Copley were also on the list. Goddard wanted Emily Blunt as Scorpia, but Sony Pictures chairman Amy Pascal suggested Emilia Clarke and Rose Byrne. Sean Penn and Woody Harrelson were wanted for Doctor Octopus (the team's leader), while Colin Firth for The Vulture and Channing Tatum for Venom. Other actors like Denzel Washington, George Clooney and Daniel Craig were all considered for various roles. »
