Meryl Streep Sings in New Featurettes for Disney’s Into The Woods

1 hour ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Disney has released two new featurettes for their upcoming feature film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Into the Woods. The first video focuses on Meryl Streep, who plays The Witch in the movie and includes a clip in which you get to hear her sing the song, “Stay With Me.” The second clip focuses on the adaptation of the musical for the big screen. The videos include interviews with Stephen Sondheim, who wrote the musical, and Chris Pine, Anna Kendrick, Streep, and more as they discuss the movie.

For some reason the trailers that have been released for the movie don’t really highlight the music from the film, which is interesting because this is a musical. So it's nice to see them talk about the music in these featurettes and hear a little number performed by Streep.

Horrible Bosses 2 review: More polished brass than comedy gold

8 hours ago | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Sean Anders; Screenwriters: Sean Anders, John Morris, Jonathan M Goldstein, John Francis Daley; Starring: Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, Chris Pine, Christoph Waltz, Jamie Foxx; Running time: 108 mins; Certificate: 15

Perhaps it's just a sign of the times but fat cats getting their comeuppance in Horrible Bosses put enough bums on seats in 2011 to bankroll a sequel. Just as crucial to the formula – in fact, its saving grace – is the banter between Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day who reprise their roles as the working grunts who, this time, come a cropper after starting their own business.

The jokes and the plotting are a little like the shower heads that come rolling off the production line at their makeshift factory – a standard fit and full of holes – but co-writer/director Sean Anders (who directed Sudeikis in We're the Millers) throws enough mud at the »

Sorry, Ladies! Your Boyfriend Chris Pine Doesn’t Believe in Fairy Tales

15 hours ago | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

We all grew up with the happily ever afters of iconic fairy tales. But do the same ideals featured in these classic stories hold up in modern relationships? VH1 asked the Into the Woods cast to weigh in at the New York press conference on Sunday.

“[The idea] that there is some kind of all-encompassing, burning, passionate love that will never die out unless you both die is so depressing and not real,” said Chris Pine, who plays Cinderella’s Prince in the upcoming movie musical. “There’s this trope in literature that somehow we’re not whole unless we have another — which, for me, is not fair to the uniqueness and wonderfulness of the individual. We can compliment one another greatly but we are not the source of each other’s happiness.”

While the rest of us rely on dating apps for potential mates, Pine doesn’t need any assistance in the romance department. »

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

17 hours ago | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

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 BluntJames Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris PineTracey Ullman and Christine Baranski. (Johnny Depp was the only notable absence.)

It marked the beginning of what will be an aggressive awards push by Disney for the highly-anticipated adaptation of the popular 1987 Broadway musical, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Lapine. And Disney is as motivated as ever following a disappointing 2013 awards season in which Saving Mr. Banks was almost entirely snubbed by the Academy.

The livestream aired Sunday on Yahoo!@ Movies with the cast and filmmakers: Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski, director Rob Marshall, and screenwriter James Lapine.

Can Meryl Streep actually win a fourth Oscar for 'Into the Woods?'

20 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

We really shouldn't be having this conversation. It's just too soon. Isn't it? When Meryl Streep won her third Academy Award for "The Iron Lady," the collective media mindset was that the acting icon had finally joined the three-timer club and any other nominations from that point on would be icing on the cake. A fourth Oscar win? Considering how many times she'd been overlooked since winning no. 2 for "Sophie's Choice" in 1982, it just didn't seem realistic that it would happen anytime soon or at all. Even after landing another Best Actress nod for "August: Osage County," the concept of Streep conceivably winning another statue just didn't register. That is, until now. To say that Streep is the standout in Rob Marshall's "Into the Woods" is somewhat of an understatement. Chris Pine does steal almost every scene he's in as the Prince (more on that in a moment), but »

Horrible Bosses 2 Review

23 November 2014 4:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Sean Anders.

Cast: Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Chris Pine, Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Spacey, Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Jonathan Banks, Lindsay Sloane.

Certificate: 15

Running Time: 104 minutes.

Synopsis: Having removed their horrible bosses from the equation, Nick (Bateman), Kurt (Sudeikis) and Dale (Day), have become their own bosses after inventing the Shower Buddy. Unfortunately they get in to business with the cut throat Bert Hanson (Waltz) who tricks them in to running their company in to the ground. Cue a complex kidnapping scheme involving Hanson’s son, Rex (Pine).

Horrible Bosses was a film that managed to speak to a wide audience. That simple title spoke to the audience and said “We get you.” Most people, so I’m told, have had those Horrible Bosses that the title reflects, and so the film was a huge hit, which of course means sequel. Seth Gordon is replaced by That’S My Boy director, »

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

23 November 2014 12:42 AM, PST | 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

22 November 2014 8:47 PM, PST | 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 »

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."

Jennifer Aniston, Christoph Waltz on Outrageous Lines and ‘Horrible Bosses 2′

21 November 2014 11:14 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jennifer Aniston reprises her role as a sex-addicted dentist in New Line’s “Horrible Bosses 2,” which hosted its L.A. premiere at the Tcl Chinese Thursday. Although Aniston clearly relishes playing against type, her character’s outrageous behavior and the on-set improvisation sometimes pushed her into awkward territory. (Variety‘s review, however, remarked that Aniston was “game as ever.”)

Jason Sudeikis had a ready (and mature!) answer for whether he’d ever had a horrible boss. “No, not really, because I got what I deserved. I was not into those jobs the way I should have been,” he explained.

Castmates Christoph Waltz and Chris Pine offered some specifics about bad bosses.
