Walt Disney Pictures has released a batch of images from the upcoming musical adaptation of Into the Woods, which is directed by Rob Marshall (Chicago) and stars James Corden (One Chance) and Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow) as a baker and his wife who head out into the woods to confront a witch, bumping into a collection of famous fairy tale characters on their travels…
“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. »

Robert Altman would be proud. His signature ensemble filmmaking style has become the norm rather than the exception in dramatic series. However magnetic the leads, they’re invariably surrounded by distinctive character players who get multiple chances to shine across a typical season.
Which creates an annual knotty problem for Emmy voters as they consider the supporting categories. Some turns can be singled out as guest actor or actress — late-1980s additions conveniently allowing the academy to spread a little more wealth around. But nominators are still faced with tapping only a select few per skein. Even more mysteriously, they’re wont to proffer a nod one year, only to deny one the next for the very same role. For example, the first year “Modern Family” was eligible, everyone in the cast but Ed O’Neill received a nom. For the next three years, the entire ensemble was recognized. But this year, »

That old saying about “three’s a crowd” doesn’t apply to Emmy statuettes on your mantle. Which is exactly why Homeland‘s Claire Danes will be hoping to score her third consecutive win as Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the 2014 ceremony.

Coming off the Showtime thriller’s uneven third season, though, Danes is hardly a lock. Among her competitors are 2011 champ Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife), who got left off the ballot in 2013 but roared back into contention this year with the CBS drama’s jaw-dropping, »
Cahill will host an audience Q&A following the screening of the film, which premiered at Sundance in January and won the Alfred P. Sloan Prize, which recognises excellence in motion pictures depicting science and technology.
The story centres on the work of a molecular biologist, played by Boardwalk Empire star Michael Pitt, whose study of the human eye leads to far reaching implications about scientific and spiritual beliefs.
It marks Cahill’s second visit to Raindance after showcasing his sci-fi feature Another Earth in 2011.
Cahill said: “I am thrilled and honoured to be returning to Raindance with my »

With the end of True Blood in sight, Carrie Preston is looking toward the future. And that future includes The Good Wife…and Kickstarter? Preston will reprise her Emmy-winning role of Elsbeth Tascioni on The Good Wife this year—the amount of episodes remains indeterminate—but beyond that? Well, that's where Kickstarter comes in. "There you go, I'll be there," Preston told E! News at Comic-Con after a Kickstarter was suggested. "I'll do the Kickstarter videos. I'll beg people, more Elsbeth! I am coming back for a couple more episodes, so…" Preston's The Good Wife character is not just a fan-favorite, but also beloved by the show's creators Robert »
Meet this year’s nominees, same as last year’s nominees — with one notable exception.
That’s the story in the 2014 Emmy race for Outstanding Drama Series, where True Detective — the dark mystery series that some Emmy watchers expected HBO to submit in the miniseries category — promises to make the outcome unpredictable.

After two consecutive wins as Best Drama Actress, Claire Danes ("Homeland") is looking to make it three in a row. If successful with her episode submission "The Star," she will join just two other leading ladies who went undefeated for three consecutive years: Barbara Bain ("Mission: Impossible") from 1967-1969 and Tyne Daly ("Cagney & Lacey") from 1983-1985 (she won a fourth in 1988). Can Danes pull it off? -Break- Exclusive: Emmy episode submissions for 'The Good Wife,' Jim Parsons, Claire Danes, ... Synopsis: In the Season 3 finale "The Star," Danes' character, Carrie Mathison, meets up with disgraced soldier Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) in Tehran immediately following his killing of General Akbari, the head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard. Carrie is under the false impression that she and Brody will travel back to America where they will live together and be parents to thei...' »
Late in last night's episode of AMC's "Halt and Catch Fire," the show's hero, computer salesman Joe MacMillan (Lee Pace), tries to dismiss a competitor who's never experienced the joy of creating something(*). Joe's rival points out that they're both in the computer compatible business, just trying to copy Ibm, and therefore neither can brag much about their flair for originality. (*) As you might expect, this column will have some spoilers for the season to date. Having apparently bested Joe with his own portable Ibm clone, he says, "You tried to be good. We just had to be good enough." It was one of many meta exchanges in the penultimate season 1 episode of "Halt," a series that has not only been reverse-engineered from past cable drama hits, but that seems acutely aware of that fact. So Joe is essentially a 1983 version of Don Draper: a mystery man in expensive suits »

When it comes to predicting Emmys, we might have a thing or two to learn from our Top 24 Users who reaped the best scores among all of our site readers last year. Out of those two dozen pundits, 19 scored better than any of our vaunted Experts and Editors, while the other five tied our very best Experts. And we all remember how many surprises there were in 2013. (Click here for our Top 24's current Emmy predictions.) -Break- Consider Philip T. In 2013, he tied two other users as Gold Derby's best Emmy predictor with 57% accuracy.

2011 saw the release of one of the quirkiest of the many independent film releases (and there were many oddball little flicks), Another Earth. This weird drama/science fiction/fantasy hybrid (it does indeed concern a twin to our big, blue marble) was the first collaboration between director Mike Cahill and actress Brit Marling (the two co-wrote the script). It was an uneven blend of mysticism and intimate character study. Since then Marling became one of the “indie” film scene’s “it” girls with leads in The Sound Of My Voice and The East, while scoring some supporting roles in mainstream studio flicks like The Company You Keep and Arbitrage. Now the two are back, working together (but not writing) on a science speculative/drama/love story I Origins. And while Marling is not the lead player this time out, it still has that offbeat, off-center vibe while being much more »
