Into The Woods Review

3 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Director Rob Marshall has masterfully brought three Broadway musicals to the big screen, although he has done so by breaking a cardinal rule of adapting a stage production. In the transition to the big screen, many directors choose to space their songs and scenes in a different way from the stage blocking, so that the story’s theatrical roots evaporate. For instance, instead of showing the scenes in a wide shot, akin to how an audience member would view a sweeping musical, they use one of the cinema’s most distinctive features, the close-up. Instead of allowing the characters to remain static as they sing their soliloquies, the director often lets the character move around and interact with the world around them. These tricks are meant to sever any stage-bound influences.

Nevertheless, the success of Marshall’s blustery, big-screen versions of beloved plays – the Oscar-winning Chicago, the under-rated Nine and now, »

Into the Woods review: trees fall in a forest, making one hell of a sound

5 hours ago | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Rob Marshall’s big screen version of the Stephen Sondheim musical has taken nearly three decades. Emily Blunt and Meryl Streep just about make it worthwhile

The path to the big screen for Stephen Sondheim’s fairytale mashup has been long and winding. A read-through was held more than 20 years ago, with Goldie Hawn and Robin Williams as the infertile baker and his wife, Cher as the witch who commissions them to fetch bits and bobs (cow, slipper, cape, hair etc) from the forest so she can break the spell, Danny DeVito as the giant, Steve Martin the big bad wolf and Roseanne Barr as Jack’s mother, fed up with her son’s bad haggling. A fresh cast – including Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan and Susan Sarandon – were cued up by Jim Henson in the late 90s, before the curtain fell on that, too. Then, after the success of rootin-tootin »

Film Review: ‘Into the Woods’

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

“Be careful what you wish for” warn the ads for “Into the Woods” — an apt summary of the movie’s theme, and also the mindset of many a Stephen Sondheim fan ever since it was announced that the composer’s popular 1987 Broadway musical was being turned into a film. But such fears are swiftly allayed by director Rob Marshall, who, um, marshals Sondheim’s cavalcade of fairy-tale all-stars on to the screen in a faithful, never particularly inspired, but supremely respectable version — one that outclasses Marshall’s prior “Chicago” and “Nine,” to say nothing of this season’s two-ton musical monstrosity, “Annie.” Strong reviews and family appeal should earn Disney much more than a bunch of magic beans at the holiday box office, with a long shelf life to follow.

It certainly took Hollywood long enough  to see the forest for the trees where “Into the Woods” was concerned. A »

'Into the Woods': Film Review

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

The tentative 21st century rebirth of the movie musical has been one step forward, two steps back. But Rob Marshall, who directed a commercially successful example in Chicago and a misconceived dud in Nine, hits a sweet spot between cinematic and theatrical with his captivating film adaptation of Into the Woods. This twisty fairy-tale mash-up shows an appreciation for the virtues of old-fashioned storytelling, along with a welcome dash of subversive wit. It benefits from respect for the source material, enticing production values and a populous gallery of sharp character portraits from a delightful cast. Its skeptical view

Golden Globes Snubs: Sorry ‘Modern Family’, ‘Walking Dead’ & ‘American Sniper’

11 December 2014 6:02 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Few mysteries perplex Hollywood like the endurance and the influence of the Golden Globes, yet year after year the less than 100 members of the secretive Hollywood Foreign Press Association dole out names and somewhere a phone rings, a text is sent and a heart glows a little brighter in the early La morning with awards-season self-confidence. Then there are those who are harshly left out in the cold — like broadcast comedy, Boardwalk Empire and American Sniper were today for the 72nd annual Globes, which will be handed out January 11 on NBC with perma-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

Here are a few of the snubs. I’m updating this list so anyone we missed?

The Walking Dead – Let’s be clear, the AMC series is the most popular show on television, both cable and broadcast. The blockbuster zombie apocalypse series has beaten the mighty Sunday Night Football again and again this fall, »

SAG Award Nominations Analysis: Aniston, Gyllenhaal Boosted, ‘Selma’ Shut Out

10 December 2014 7:16 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It was a good morning for Jennifer Aniston and Jake Gyllenhaal, whose heralded performances in smaller films managed to break into crowded fields with nominations for the SAG Awards. Not doing as well today is Paramount, which found both their Oscar hopefuls, “Interstellar” and “Selma,” shut out of all categories.

With the SAG the first of the guilds to announce nominations for motion pictures, the SAG Awards are often seen as a great harbinger for the Academy Awards. Last year, all four SAG Award winners in film went on to Oscar glory. While there is no correlation between the SAG Awards’ best ensemble category and Oscar’s best picture, many continue to insist a connection exists. Last year, only three of the five film ensembles nominated went on to score best picture noms at the Oscars, with “August: Osage County” and “Lee DanielsThe Butler” left off the Academy list. »

SAG Awards: Predictions in an Unpredictable Year

8 December 2014 11:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sorry critics, but the SAG Awards are the first of the true precursor honors that indicate which way the Academy Awards may be leading. The nominees are voted on by 4,200 SAG members selected at random every year — 2,100 vote on film awards, 2,100 vote on TV awards. The full SAG-aftra voting body then selects the winners, who will be announced in a ceremony on Jan. 25, 2015. The nominees will be announced on Dec. 10 at an ungodly hour.

Last year, all four SAG award winners in film went on to score the Academy Award. (The fifth category, best ensemble, has no Oscar equivalent, though many erroneously associate it with best picture.) Still, there are always some anomalies in matching up the races every year — I still wonder if voters thought they were casting ballots for Melanie Laurent in “Inglourious Basterds” the year Diane Kruger got a nod.

And because the nominations are announced early, »

'Into the Woods': Cinematographer Dion Beebe on Photographing Meryl Streep

28 November 2014 4:19 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Into the Woods is the third musical that Oscar winning cinematographer Dion Beebe shot for director Rob Marshall. Together they previously collaborated on Nine and best picture winner Chicago. But Into the Woods, an adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's work, was a "different type of musical in that the lyrics are the dialogue of the film," said Beebe, who won an Oscar for Marshall's Memoirs of a Geisha. "We didn't choose a theatricality that we used on Chicago and Nine. It was important to focus on the songs as if they were dialogue and create a reality. The woods was

Off the Carpet: 'Into the Woods' arrives with 'Unbroken' on deck

24 November 2014 2:49 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Moulin Rouge!" (2001), "Chicago" (2002), "The Phantom of the Opera" (2004), "Dreamgirls" (2006), "Enchanted" (2007), "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" (2007), "Nine" (2009), "Les Misérables" (2012). Between them, 50 oscar nominations, only three of them recognized for Best Picture and only one of them taking the big prize. That's more or less the modern legacy Rob Marshall's "Into the Woods" is looking to enter into, a stage of relative reinvigoration for the musical film genre. Of course, then there are films like "Burlesque," "Hairspray," "Mamma Mia!" and "The Producers," which were stiffed by the Academy but were remembered in the HFPA's Best Picture — Comedy/Musical category at the Golden Globes. Not to mention others like "Fame," "Footloose," "Idlewild," "Rent" and "Rock of Ages," which weren't remembered at all come awards season (with "Jersey Boys" and maybe "Annie" likely to meet similar fates). All of that is to simply illustrate the ups and downs for these »

‘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. »

Marion Cotillard on 'Macbeth': 'I lost control of everything'

21 November 2014 10:25 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Marion Cotillard has had what can only be described as a remarkable seven years. Truly. Since winning the Best Actress Oscar for her breakthrough performance in "La Vie en Rose" she's starred in Woody Allen's best film this century ("Midnight in Paris"), Christopher Nolan's Best Picture nominee ("Inception"), worked with Michael Mann ("Public Enemies"), smartly joined a Steven Soderbergh ensemble ("Contagion"), headlined a massive French-language hit ("Little White Lies"), was already robbed of a second Best Actress Oscar nomination ("Rust and Bone") and was the center of an acclaimed drama already well on its way to cinephile cult film status ("The Immigrant"). Throw in one flick for her life partner ("Blood Ties"), a paycheck too hard to turn down ("The Dark Knight Rise") and a musical that just didn't work ("Nine") and Cotillard is already well on her way to living legend status. Now, get ready to add  "Two Days, »

Marion Cotillard’s Curious Career

20 November 2014 7:24 AM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor 

Seven years after winning an Oscar for her portrayal of Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose (2007), Marion Cotillard could land a second nomination for her role in Belgian brothers Jean-Pierre Dardenne and Luc Dardenne’s Two Days, One Night (Deux jours, une nuit), which is Belgium’s Oscar submission. She was also in 2013 Cannes selection The Immigrant, which was released in May of this year. Since La Vie en Rose, Cotillard has mainly worked on small indie films both inside and outside of America, with the exception of Christopher Nolan‘s Inception (2010) and The Dark Knight Rises (2012).

Cotillard was introduced to acting at a young age — her father was a director and her mother was an actress — and began her career acting in a variety of French TV shows and films. Her first Hollywood role was in Tim Burton‘s Big Fish (2003). She appeared »

Off the Carpet: Where we stand after AFI Fest and self-proclaimed 'official' launches

17 November 2014 9:43 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A lot has happened to further set the stage for this year's Oscar race in the last week and a half. AFI Fest ultimately landed four major world premieres — "A Most Violent Year," "The Gambler," "Selma" and "American Sniper." Film Independent at Lacma added "Big Eyes" to the equation. "Unbroken" premiered in Sydney just hours ago as a show of appreciation (the film was largely shot in Australia) while screening to some press stateside (the big coming out will be Thanksgiving weekend). And the awards shows themselves have already started, namely the Governors Awards and the summarily dismissed Hollywood Film Awards. I suppose it's time to see where we stand… Christopher Nolan's "Interstellar" played to a disinterested Academy audience the weekend of release and didn't become the box office story it was expected to be (it will be just fine on that score, though — perspective).

Icon, Italian Style! AFI's Sophia Loren Tribute

15 November 2014 8:15 AM, PST | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Mark Cerulli

On Wednesday night, Hollywood took a step back in time and it was a beautiful thing. Italy’s most glamorous export, the lovely Sophia Loren, made a rare visit to screen two of her films to an adoring crowd at the Dolby Theater. The movie legend was greeted with a standing ovation when she walked out in a shimmering gown, escorted by director Rob Marshall who was clearly in awe of the star he cast in Nine, her last Hollywood film. Settling into two plush seats separated by a mountain of roses, Marshall introduced her as “A woman with a heart as big as all of Italy.” Loren opened up about her life, career and leading men in a 45 minute Q&A, punctuated by frequent laughter and some poignant moments when she remembered how movies offered an escape from the misery of post-wwii Italy.

AFI Fest Honors Sophia Loren, Actress, Fashion Icon, Mistress of Throwing Shade

14 November 2014 9:32 AM, PST | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

 Anne Marie from the AFI Fest on an International Legend...

At age 80, Sophia Loren is still magnetic. When the Academy Award-winning actress appeared onstage at the Dolby Theatre on Wednesday night for an AFI Fest tribute to her career, she received a two-minute long standing ovation. The audience whooped and yelled "Bellisima" before Loren, elegant in a black gown studded with crystals, could do more than walk onstage and smile. Once the furor died down, Rob Marshall, her director for Nine, interviewed Sophia Loren about her career, co-stars, and controversies.

“When I saw the movies, I forgot the war, forgot hunger. It was possible to believe there was another life than the one I was in.”

Despite her glamorous image, Loren's description of her early life growing up poor in the slums of Italy was bleak. When she met her husband, producer Carlo Ponti (who passed away in 2007), he took »

Tech Support: 'Budapest,' 'Into the Woods,' 'Exodus' highlight Best Production Design

13 November 2014 12:58 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Grandeur often rules the day in Best Production Design, which awards the men and women responsible for a movie's set design and construction. The category typically favors period pieces, though at least one fantasy title tends to find a home every year. It is rare for truly contemporary films to be nominated. However, the category is more open to fantasy and contemporary pieces than its cousin Best Costume Design. (Last year was the first year the costume designers had their own branch, but no easily discernible new trends could be observed in my opinion.) Recent years have also suggested openness to CGI-complemented work ("Life of Pi" and "Gravity" immediately jump to mind). On that note, it's worth mentioning that the Art Directors Guild has implemented a new rule somewhat under the radar for its precursor awards this season. According to the new provision, period films must now have the majority »
