Fairy Tales are also cautionary tales, a way to teach morals and values to children at a time when the majority of the populace couldn’t read or write. It wasn’t until the last four centuries or so when we began writing it all down and solidifying the variations. Even today, people take the classics and reinterpret them for new generations, bringing in modern themes and issues, making them more relevant.
The cautionary tale to take from The Huntsman: Winter’s War is that you have to have something interesting to say. The preceding film, Snow White and the Huntsman, gave us a revisionist Snow White in the form of plucky Kristen Stewart, a modern day action heroine that made her a proactive player in the classic German tale.

John Krasinski is one proud dad. The actor made a heartwarming appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, where he opened up about how his 2-year-old daughter, Hazel, is adjusting to being a big sister to his and Emily Blunt's newborn daughter, Violet, whom they welcomed earlier this Summer. Spoiler: she loves it. "She's just young enough to know that, 'That's adorable and I get a lot of attention when I do things like hug her, because it looks like a Hallmark card,'" he explained. "'But as long as she doesn't mess with my stuff, we're good.' That's kind of the relationship they have right now." He also gushed about how lucky he feels to be their dad. "I truly - every single night - say, 'I can't believe these two amazing girls are mine.'" Too cute! »

To say John Krasinski has been busy this summer is an understatement. The director appeared on ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday to promote The Hollars (in which he also stars) and opened up about the arrival of his second daughter, Violet Krasinski, born June 20. The newborn joined sister Hazel Krasinski, 2, whose mother is actress Emily Blunt, 33. "I can't believe you actually remembered their names," he joked after his friend, host Jimmy Kimmel, congratulated him on welcoming Baby No. 2. "He lives in space, guys. He's that famous. He gets it from his assistant. 'They're what now? Got it. Yup, Veebop and Hazeboo.'" John then explained why Hazel "absolutely" loves her »
After the success of 2012's Snow White and the Huntsman, which took in $155.3 million domestically and $396.5 million from a $160 million budget, Universal Pictures decided to go in another direction for its follow-up.

While fans get ready for the Blu-ray and DVD release tomorrow, we have an exclusive preview that introduces Emily Blunt's character, Freya.
Universal Pictures Home Entertainment provided us with this preview, which features Emily Blunt revealing more about her character, the Ice Queen. The actress teases that villains rarely have much back story, but she was quite pleased that there was such a rich origin for Freya. We also hear from her on-screen sister, Charlize Theron, who reveals how Freya goes on a journey to discover her power, while director Cedric Nicolas-Troyan describes Freya as the "beta" to Ravenna's alpha. »

Every time we see them on the red carpet, Emily Blunt and John Krasinkski prove just how in love they are, constantly giggling together and unable to peel their eyes off one another. But it doesn't stop there. Even in interviews, the couple can't help but gush about one another. It's not that annoying lovey-dovey type of gushing that you can tell is fabricated and fake—it's so real it could make your heart melt. Case in point: Krasinski unabashedly told Elle magazine that his favorite romantic comedy has always been The Devil Wears Prada. "I can honestly say, before I met Emily, it was The Devil Wears Prada," he revealed to the publication. »

Cobie Smulders is Tom Cruise's latest leading lady in Jack Reacher: Never Go Back and considering the past two are Emily Blunt (Edge Of Tomorrow) & Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation), she'll have some pretty big shoes to fill, but luckily for her, she already has plenty of experience in the badass department, thanks to her role as Maria Hill in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, as part of their annual Fall Movie Preview, Smulders expressed her excitement at finally getting a chance to get in on the action versus being relegated to handling things behind-the-scenes: "I’m not competing fight-wise with superheroes." She jokes before adding: "It is so exciting to see these superheroes fight one another. The [human characters] are, like, ‘I’m just gonna make some phone calls.’ So it was really fun to be in a movie where you had to fight for your life at every opportunity. »

The adorable pair hit the red carpet for John's new movie, The Hollars, in NYC on Thursday night, where they added to their growing collection of cute moments by giggling practically nonstop and staring into each other's eyes.

Earlier this year, Disney brought on Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda to star in Mary Poppins Returns, alongside Emily Blunt. It seems the studio is doubling down with this actor-musician, bringing him aboard their remake of The Little Mermaid, where he will compose songs alongside Alan Menken. It isn't known if he will also act in this remake, but he is said to be involved in supervising the story and overseeing the writing of the script.
Deadline reports that Lin-Manuel Miranda will also produce this live-action remake with Marc Platt, who is currently prepping his long-awaited big screen adaptation of the Broadway sensation Wicked. This news comes just a few months after a report surfaced that the studio wasn't sure if they wanted to move forward with this new live-action project.
Miranda will also produce the film along with Marc Platt.
The 1989 version followed a mermaid princess who struck a bargain with a sea-witch in order to meet a human prince on land. Menken wrote the music for the animated tale, including memorable hits like “Under the Sea,” “Part of Your World,” and “Kiss the Girl.”
The reboot is one of a handful of “The Little Mermaid” pics on the market. Working Title also working on their own with Chloe Grace Moretz starring.
Following the huge success of Miranda’s “Hamilton,” which has smashed Broadway records and swept the Tonys, Disney has been very active in finding ways to get in business with the multi-hyphenate. He recently penned all the songs to the Disney animated pic “Moana” starring Dwayne Johnson »
