‘Into The Woods’ Sings Its Way Straight Into The Oscar Race

11 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Dinsey unveiled another piece of the Oscar season puzzle Saturday night with an innovative bi-coastal screening of their big holiday release, the musical adaptation of Into The Woods, which screened simultaneously in New York City and at Disney Studios in Burbank (where I saw it).

Post-screening, a satellite-transmitted Q&A featured director Rob Marshall, screenwriter James Lapine and key cast members. Full disclosure:  I have been in love with this Stephen Sondheim masterpiece since even before it debuted on Broadway on Nov. 5, 1987.  Southern California native that I am, I trekked down to San Diego’s Old Globe Theatre in 1986 for its pre-Broadway tryout and instantly fell in love.

It’s not only one of my favorite Sondheim musicals (in the top three to be sure with Company and West Side Story), but high among the greatest theatrical experiences I have ever had. I have seen the show in various incarnations several times since. »

Disney’s ‘Into the Woods’ Enters Awards Season on High Note

15 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Though “Into the Woods” debuted in 1986, it’s “a fairy tale for the post-9/11 generation,” said director Rob Marshall at a Q&A in New York after a screening of the film Saturday.

The panel session took place at the DGA Theater in New York and was satellite-fed to the Disney main theater in Burbank, a two-birds-with-one-stone approach as the film begins industry screenings for awards contention.

The director and his team of artisans will certainly be under Oscar consideration, as will Meryl Streep (top billed, but in a supporting role) and other performers. Variety will run its review in December; after that, there will be more opportunities to handicap the film’s awards chances in specific categories.

Disney often takes a cautious approach to the awards race, but the studio execs seem gung-ho about this one. The film also marks a subtle shift for the studio. Its “Maleficent” earlier »

Disney Musical 'Into the Woods' Swoops Into Awards Season — How Far Can It Go?

15 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

And then there was just one unseen Oscar contender. Unbroken. On Saturday evening, Disney unveiled the second-to-last of the major Oscar hopefuls that had not yet been been seen by pundits, Rob Marshall's Into the Woods, at simultaneous screenings on both coasts, followed by a Q&A — live in New York, streamed in Los Angeles — with Marshall, screenwriter James Lapine and stars Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Tracey Ullman and Christine Baranski. (Johnny Depp was the only notable absence.) It marked the beginning of what will be an aggressive awards push

Watch: Meryl Streep Jump Scares Emily Blunt and James Corden in New 'Into the Woods' Clip

16 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

People, Into the Woods has been screened, and I, unfortunately, was not in attendance. I don't know why they didn't invite me. Probably because I'm a nobody, but it could be something else... You never know. This is a film I am staying as far away as I possibly can from outside reactions. Movie musicals are a tricky thing for people to review because a lot of people do not understand the form, so I just want to avoid all chatter and go in with just my thoughts and experiences. Disney has given me a little something to tie me over to when I actually do get to see the film. They have released a new clip from the film, which you can watch below, featuring James Corden as The Baker and Emily Blunt as his Wife bickering only to be interrupted by Meryl Streep as The Witch.

Chris Pine shows off his vocal chops as a singing Prince Charming in the upcoming film adaption of Into the Woods, but the actor notes that his singing ability comes a bit naturally.

Jennifer Aniston serves 'Cake' in La as Best Actress nomination chances increase

22 November 2014 1:53 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

West Hollywood — On Wednesday it was Reese. On Thursday it was Shailene. On Friday it was Jennifer… …Aniston. Yes, this year's Best Actress contenders continued to celebrate their films with awards season events and Thursday night featured a special screening of Daniel Barnz's "Cake," where a post-show party at the Sunset Tower Hotel found Aniston, obviously, the center of attention. "Cake" stars Aniston as Claire, a woman whose life has come to something of a stand still because of chronic pain she's suffered from a major car accident. It's an impressive performance by the popular actress that I praised in my review of the film from the Toronto Film Festival a few months ago, and hinted she could be an awards season player. Speaking to Aniston Friday night, she admitted that after some roles, directors and producers "box" you into a certain mold for a certain kind of a movie. »

First Look: Meryl Streep Goes ‘Into the Woods’ With Stephen Sondheim

21 November 2014 5:16 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It’s nearly time to go Into the Woods!

The film adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s beloved musical comes out Christmas Day, and Et talked to the composer and Meryl Streep about turning the fairytale mashup into a major motion picture.

Streep attended the original Broadway production of Into the Woods, which starred Bernadette Peters as The Witch, the same role the Oscar-winning actress plays in the film.

"I thought it was fantastic," Streep told Et. "I remember coming out of the theater singing to myself."

News: First Look! Meryl Scares In 'Into the Woods'

Et got a behind-the-scenes look at some of the film’s special effects and talked to Sondheim about casting the star in the big-screen adaptation.

"Meryl Streep is so remarkable," the composer gushed. "She would do a number of takes on the songs in the recording studio and every one was different."

Meryl Streep Slays 'Stay With Me' in 'Into the Woods' (Video)

21 November 2014 7:50 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Diehard musical theater fans have been skeptical about a lot of the choices that went into the film adaptation of "Into the Woods," but Meryl Streep as the Witch wasn't one of them. This featurette offers a sneak peek at Streep in action as she sings "Stay With Me" in a moving scene with Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy).

Granted, it doesn't really make up for what we've seen of Johnny Depp as the Wolf so far - that whiskery mustache! - but it's smart to give the Sondheim heads a slice of Streep to assuage at least some of their worries. And if that's not enough to entice viewers, there's always the costumes; between Chris Pine's fancy velvet pants and Billy Magnussen's leather trousers, there's a little something for everyone in these woods.

New Into The Woods Featurette Shows off Meryl Streep Singing “Stay with Me”

20 November 2014 10:32 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fun fact: Meryl Streep has been nominated for an Oscar five times in the last seven years.  Combine her extraordinary acting ability with the pedigree of Into the Woods, and she could easily lock up yet another nod (which would make it her 18th Oscar nomination over the course of her career; that's what happens when you're a national treasure).  A new featurette for the upcoming musical further pushes her awards chances as Stephen Sondheim, who wrote the music and lyrics, praises her ability "to find colors in lyric."  This featurette shows some of Streep singing "Stay with Me", and it's a beautiful rendition.  I hope the rest of the film is worthy of her immense talent. Hit the jump to check out the new Into the Woods featurette.  The film opens December 25th, and also stars Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Lucy Punch, Christine Baranski, Tracy Ullman, »

Oscar Hopefuls Timothy Spall, Jake Gyllenhaal Take on Unique Tasks

20 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Learning to hold a brush like Britain’s most revered landscape artist could be considered the easiest way to embody the role of J.M.W. Turner. But for Timothy Spall, who stars as the titular “Mr. Turner,” perfecting the artist’s signature grip was merely the first step in his quest to paint like a master.

“The job really was to get as much knowledge about the practicalities of the painter, try and understand what he was doing,” Spall says. “Basically, we were trying to make it look like I was familiar with a brush, like it was something that grew organically out of my whole being.”

The actor trained with watercolorist Tim Wright off and on for two years before he began shooting Mike Leigh’s look at the last 25 years of Turner’s life and prolific career. After a rigorous examination of the basics, Spall punctuated his »

10 Obscure 2014 Films You Need To See

20 November 2014 4:49 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Magnolia Pictures

2014 was an exceptional year for blockbusters. Marvel proved that their superhero films were anything but one-trick ponies by following the paranoid conspiracy thriller vibe of Captain America: The Winter Soldier with the sharp-witted, rebellious sci-fi Guardians Of The Galaxy; Tom Cruise completed his career rehabilitation after Sofagate by starring alongside Emily Blunt in wildly inventive action film Edge Of Tomorrow; the X-Men franchise got back on track with Days Of Future Past; and that fourth Transformers film, um, happened. Less said about that the better.

With all that popcorn fodder vying for your attention, and with Hollywood unleashing their big guns even before the summer window has fully been cracked, it’s possible your attention was drawn away from some of the smaller, more interesting cinematic releases of the year. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. We all like shiny things, like explosions and Sebastian Stan’s glittering eyes. »
