6 Successful Cinematic Updates To Classic Fairy Tales

1 October 2014 8:59 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fantasy embedded in folklore, brimming with romance, heroism and magical enchantments – fairy tales have been with us since the dawn of mankind’s imagination; handed down from generation to generation – first in the oral tradition, and later, in literature. The term ‘fairy tale’ was first coined by French writer Marie-Catherine Le Jumel de Barneville, Baroness d’Aulnoy in reference to her own work, and has since been adopted to encompass an entire genre, in which witches, trolls, giants, elves and sprites are not only commonplace, they often drive the action.

These days, when we think of fairy tales, we usually think of either the funky mash-ups of the Shrek franchise, or the ‘classic’ Disney movies – pretty young things, perfectly rendered in animation, twirling among helpful animals while singing with the voice of an angel. Those movies are somewhat dated now, however, and Hollywood seems keen to re-adjust that picture – remaking »

Towie's Dan Osborne on panto: 'I don't even know Jack and the Beanstalk'

30 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Only Way Is Essex star Dan Osborne has admitted that he has a problem with his upcoming pantomime role - he doesn't actually know the story of Jack and the Beanstalk.

Osborne, who will play the title role in Liverpool's panto, told Digital Spy and others in Ibiza - where the Towie cast are filming two special episodes - that he is feeling "nervous" about the job.

"The worst thing is, I've never even seen Jack and the Beanstalk," he said. "I don't even know the story."

Luckily, Osborne's Towie co-star Lewis Bloor was on hand to help, saying: "This geezer takes his mum's prize cow to the market, trades it for some magic beans, comes home, his mum says, 'What have you got these magic beans for?', chucks them away, bosh, magic beanstalk. Up the beanstalk there's a giant goose, lays a golden egg, and he takes the egg, »

Top Trailers Available for Potential Oscar Contenders

22 September 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

Offering us glimpses into new worlds and stories, movie trailers have just a few minutes to show the premise of a film and what viewers can expect to see. Teasers are often a minute or less. These minutes have the potential to create or destroy excitement surrounding a film. Potential Oscar contenders, such as Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice, still haven’t released trailers to the public. As of right now, the only glimpse of Anderson’s anticipated film is in a minute long preview for the 52nd New York Film Festival. Many of the projected contenders have released their trailers or teasers, though. Here are some of the best trailers/teasers available:

Birdman

The trailer shows Michael Keaton as a former film star, known for his portrayal of a superhero named Birdman, struggling to make a comeback after the end of his glory days. »

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 Is A Creepy Witch In Maiden Poster For Disney’s Into The Woods

16 September 2014 10:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

One of the more left-field Oscar contenders heading into this year’s awards season is undoubtedly Disney’s musical fairytale, Into The Woods. It’s based on Stephen Sondheim’s atypical and indeed award-winning musical deconstruction of the titular tale, which weaves together a variety of renown fantasy heroes who unite against Meryl Streep’s spiteful witch.

Directed by Chicago’s Rob Marshall, the film is essentially a melting pot of the studio’s beloved characters from the Brothers Grimm catalogue, including Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Jack and the Beanstalk, who are all drawn together to face the aforementioned villain thanks to a loveable baker and his wife — played by James Corden and Emily Blunt, respectively.

What’s most impressive about Into The Woods, though, is it’s remarkable ensemble cast, which features the likes of Anna Kendrick, Johnny Deep as The Wolf, Jake Gyllenhaal, Chris Pine and Tracey Ullman. »

Meryl Streep Dominates the New Poster for Into the Woods

16 September 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Disney's upcoming live-action musical, Into the Woods, based on a play of the same name has revealed an all new movie poster that features Meryl Streep's villainous Witch character front and center.  Come inside to check it out!

To be honest...this is just kind of a boring poster.  While it's menacing and shows off the danger that the Witch poses, with the snarly looking woods as well, it also does very little to attract people.  If I were to see this in the theater, I wouldn't automatically think, "I want to know more about this movie."  That's not to say that it's horrible by any means, it's just not all that exciting either.
