Extended Featurette For Into The Woods Finally Includes Singing

23 October 2014 12:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

There’s two months to go before the year is out, and we’ve still got a clutch of big titles scheduled for release within that timeframe. One of the most intriguing is definitely Rob Marshall’s Into The Woods. A live-action spin-off of Stephen Sondheim’s smash musical, it boasts a starry cast that includes some of Hollywood’s biggest hitters. With that in mind, Disney are gearing up the marketing machine for their holiday sing-a-long that’s guaranteed to win over the masses. Yesterday, we were finally given a proper look at Johnny Depp as The Wolf, and today we’ve got a new, full-length featurette.

Considering the flick is based on a musical, it’s difficult to sell that aspect to audiences in advance through posters and stills. Thanks to this latest behind the scenes video though, the dazzling visuals and sharp vocal talents of the cast are finally given a preview. »

See Johnny Depp as The Wolf in Disney's Into the Woods

23 October 2014 10:10 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Johnny Depp's Big Bad Wolf has been revealed in full in a new behind-the-scenes video for Into the Woods.

The Stephen Sondheim musical adaptation is directed by Chicago's Rob Marshall and also stars Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick and Chris Pine.

The first trailer for the upcoming movie only provided a quick shot of The Wolf's paw.

Into the Woods combines fairy tales including Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella and Jack and the Beanstalk, but not as we quite know them, with the story of a childless couple who work as bakers.

Streep stars as The Witch, Kendrick plays Cinderella and Pine is her Prince. Blunt and Corden round out the cast as The Baker and his Wife.

Sondheim has said Disney executives have made some changes to his musical - removing some sexualisation and more adult moments - and he has written a new song »

Extended Into The Woods Featurette Provides Plenty of New Footage from the Upcoming Musical

23 October 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Following yesterday's EW covers and new images, Disney has now released an extended featurette for Rob Marshall's adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's classic musical Into the Woods.  The Disney production stars James Corden and Emily Blunt as a Baker and his wife who venture into the woods to confront the witch (Meryl Streep) responsible for putting a curse on the childless couple.  Along the way, they run into a number of familiar fairy tale characters, all of whom have wishes to change their lives.  While I'll admit that Johnny Depp's costume and makeup for the Big Bad Wolf continue to plunge the actor into self-parody, the rest of the movie looks surprisingly great.  This featurette really sells not only the fantastic visuals, but also shows that this is a true ensemble piece.  The featurette also provides the first time we're hearing the actors sing some of the songs, »

New Into The Woods Images Feature Johnny Depp’s Big Bad Wolf, Anna Kendrick’s Cinderella, and More

22 October 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Earlier this morning, we got our first look at Johnny Depp’s Big Bad Wolf from director Rob Marshall’s (Chicago) upcoming musical adaptation Into the Woods.  It’s an interesting look to say the least, and while I figured the reason Depp was left out of the trailer was because his character would be CG-aided, it turns out he’s actually just wearing what looks like a relatively cheap Halloween costume.  Indeed, Depp tells EW Marshall let him put his own spin on the character: “Rob Marshall wasn't afraid to let me take the role to a level of heightened reality, almost cartoon-like, where one second the Wolf is here, and then, boom, suddenly he's over there.” Nevertheless, the film still has promise with its fantastic ensemble and twisty premise, and some new Into the Woods images have now landed online that give some different looks at Depp’s wolf, »

Take A First Look At Johnny Depp’s Wolf From Into The Woods

22 October 2014 1:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Cast your minds back to July, and you may recall Disney dropping the first teaser for its upcoming musical romp, Into The Woods. The anticipation began to mount with stills and posters littering the web, before we had the chance to see the starry cast transformed into their fairy tale icons in the preview. While it was indeed a tease, there was one noticeable name barely given a glance – Johnny Depp. With the movie’s release a mere two months away now, EW has bombarded newsstands with multiple glossy covers featuring the cast. And yes, there’s one of Monsieur Depp.

In terms of tone, the covers are a smidge baffling when compared to the teaser trailer and earlier stills. Whereas Meryl Streep’s Witch has previously appeared to be the stuff of childhood nightmares, she’s now morphed into a back-combed blue minx. We can only assume this is »

Full Look at Johnny Depp as The Wolf in Disney's Into The Woods - EW Covers

22 October 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Entertainment Weekly has released a series of magazine covers for an upcoming issue that focuses on Disney's upcoming film Into the Woods. Each of the covers features two characters from the movie, and one of these covers gives us our first good full-frontal look at Johnny Deep as The Wolf. Up until this point, all we've seen of the character is of him hiding behind a tree. I've got to be honest… I wasn't expecting that look for the character. I wasn't expecting to see more of a wolf-like face, but this works! I'm sure all the girls that have a crush on Depp will appreciate that they can see his face.

First Look: Johnny Depp As The Dapper Wolf In Rob Marshall's ‘Into The Woods’ With Meryl Streep & More

22 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“I’ve been offered many witches over the years, starting when I was 40, and I said no to all of them,”  Meryl Streep told Entertainment Weekly in this week’s issue of the magazine wherein “Into The Woods” graces the cover. Clearly she changed her mind for Rob Marshall’s dark adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's beloved musical. “But this was really fun because it played with the notion of what witches mean. They represented age and ugliness and scary powers we don’t understand. So here’s my opportunity to say, here’s what you wish for when you’re getting old.” Intertwining the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy —"Little Red Riding Hood," "Jack and the Beanstalk," "Rapunzel," and "Cinderella"— the musical is about a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Streep) who has put a curse on them. »
