Disney's Into The Woods - New Poster with Creepy Meryl Streep

21 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Disney released a new poster for their upcoming movie musical Into the Woods, which features a ghoulish looking Meryl Streep looking to haunt your nightmares. 

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."

I've never seen the stage musical that this movie is based on, but I'm familiar with a couple of the songs. It looks like a decent movie, and it has an impressive cast that also includes Emily Blunt, James Corden, »

Meryl Streep Peeks Out in First 'Into the Woods' Poster

16 September 2014 9:14 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Disney has premiered the first poster for Rob Marshall's new musical, Into the Woods, based on the Tony-winning original musical by James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim. Featuring a massive ensemble cast, Into the Woods surrounds a baker and his wife's quest to break a witch's curse in order to start a family. Along the way, they encounter several well-known fairy tale characters, and together they learn what happens after "happily ever after". The film stars Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Chris Pine, Jake Gyllenhaal, Emily Blunt, Tracey Ullman, Anna Kendrick and Billy Magnussen. This is one film that very well could have a big effect on the Oscar race once it arrives on December 25, though Marshall hasn't exactly had the best track record since Chicago as Memoirs of a Geisha and Nine fell rather flat and Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides was... well... you know.

TVLine's Performer of the Week: Anna Paquin

A weekly feature in which we spotlight shining stars

The Performer | Anna Paquin

The Show | True Blood

The Episode | “Thank You”

The Airdate | August 24, 2014

True Blood’s series finale may have been divisiive — the fan war continues to rage — but there’s no two ways to look at Paquin’s heartbreaking final performance.

Sunday’s episode found Sookie Stackhouse bouncing between both ends of the emotional spectrum, as she first struggled to accept Bill’s death wish, then helped him grant it, only to ultimately move on and find happiness with someone new.

Stage Door: Two Hunks

18 August 2014 5:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Billy Magnusson as "Rapunzel's Prince"If you're looking forward to Into the Woods, you should familiarize yourself with one of its two Prince Charmings. The Observer has a great profile of rising star Billy Magnusson who is in a new play called "Sex With Strangers" with Breaking Bad's Anna Gunn. We heart him here at Tfe from the moment we first noticed him in his eventually Tony nominated role in Vanya and Sonya and Masha and Spike (reviewed). He played Spike in all his shirtless Sigourney's- boy-toy glory. We'd also seen him as one of the dumbest jocks ever committed to film in Whit Stillman's Damsels in Distress but either he hadn't yet perfected his sleight of hand with this 'type' or you had to be paying closer attention.

He was fun on The Leftovers a couple of weeks back, too, as a man who sold artificial look-alike »

First Poster and Trailer for Martin Scorsese Produced Revenge of the Green Dragons

13 August 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The first trailer, poster and syopsis have been released for Revenge of the Green Dragons, the upcoming crime drama from directors Andrew Lau (Infernal Affairs) and Andrew Loo.

Martin Scorsese is serving as executive producer on the movie, something which isn’t a huge surprise in some ways as it was The Wolf of Wall Street director who helmed a remake of Infernal Affairs with 2006′s The Departed.

Revenge of the Green Dragons focuses on two immigrant brothers who join a Chinatown gang known as “The Green Dragons” in order to survive the poverty of 1980s New York. It’s based on a true story, and interestingly it appears as if the concept of the American Dream will form the movie’s backdrop.

Hot Tiff Trailer: ‘Revenge of the Green Dragons’

13 August 2014 1:02 PM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Ray Liotta, Justin Chon (Twilight), and Harry Shum, Jr. (Glee) star in the 1990s NYC-set action crime drama that’s executive produced by Martin Scorsese and set to debut next month at the Toronto Film Festival. Revenge of the Green Dragons is helmed by Andrew Lau & Andrew Loo and was inspired by Frederick Dannen’s New Yorker article chronicling Asian-American gang life in Queens, NY. It’s a reunion of sorts for Lau and Scorsese after the latter remade Lau’s Hong Kong crime pic Infernal Affairs into his own Oscar-winning 2006 film The Departed. Pic tracks immigrant siblings Sonny (Chon) and Steven (Kevin Wu) who join Chinatown’s Green Dragons in pursuit of their own American Dream, only to find themselves at odds when Sonny turns against his brother and the organization.

Shuya Chang, Geoff Pierson, Billy Magnussen, and Eugenia Yuan also star. Michael Dijiacomo and Loo co-wrote the script »

Revenge Of The Green Dragons Trailer and Poster: Chinatown Gang Members Search for the American Dream

13 August 2014 12:24 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A24 Films has released the first Revenge of the Green Dragons trailer and poster for directors Andrew Lau (Infernal Affairs) and Andrew Loo’s upcoming crime drama.  Based on a true story, the film revolves around two immigrant brothers (played by Justin Chon and Kevin Wu) who survive the poverty of 1980s New York by joining the Chinatown gang “The Green Dragons”, where they quickly rise up the ranks and draw the attention of the city cops.  Martin Scorsese—who remade Infernal Affairs with 2006’s The Departed—lends his name to the film as an executive producer, and it’s not hard to see why.  The trailer highlights a unique story with heavy stakes, told against the backdrop of the American Dream.  It looks to be an altogether promising feature, and one I’m curious to check out. Hit the jump to check out the Revenge of the Green Dragons trailer and poster. »

The last time director Andrew Lau and Martin Scorsese were directly associated, it was because Scorsese was remaking Lau’s Infernal Affairs as The Departed.

Anna Gunn was nearly in tears on Wednesday — after her opening-night performance of the Off-Broadway production of Sex With Strangers at New York City's Second Stage Theatre, she found herself in a long, heartfelt hug with Breaking Bad writer Moira Walley-Beckett. Meanwhile, co-star Billy Magnussen bid David Hyde Pierce goodbye before indulging in celebratory drinks with guests at the Yotel after party.
