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. »

The number of big movies left in the year yet to be seen is getting smaller and smaller, and one of the most intriguing on the way from Disney is "Into The Woods." Based on the smash hit musical and featuring an all-star cast and gnarly twist on classic fairy tales, the film has all the ingredients for a big holiday success. But can this ensemble hit the right notes? Well, a new featurette for the film is here, and it contains some of the first footage of the cast getting into the musical mood. Anna Kendrick and Meryl Streep in particular are highlighted, and while thanks to "Pitch Perfect" and the upcoming "The Last Five Years" we know the former can belt out a number, the latter Oscar winning actress shows that she's been practicing as well. The promo also features a nice bit of footage, finding director Rob Marshall »

No slouch himself, packing 250 pounds onto a muscular 6-foot-one-inch frame, Cena was eager to make the leap from action movies to comedy. “These are the people who make funny,” says Cena. “I was more nervous of that than anything I’ve ever done.”
At a time when Dwayne Johnson and Dave Bautista have successfully transitioned from WWE to the bigscreen with franchises like “Fast & Furious,” “G.I. Joe” and “Guardians of the Galaxy,” Hollywood is now calling on Cena to make the leap.
He recently wrapped showy roles in Apatow’s “Trainwreck,” which Schumer stars in and co-wrote; and “The Nest,” with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Universal Pictures will release the comedies in July and December of 2015, respectively.
But Cena, 37, isn’t looking to leave wrestling behind anytime soon. »

Fogelson, a film biz vet who headed Universal Pictures from 2009 through September 2013, will oversee all aspects of the company’s motion picture group, including its production, marketing, distribution and home entertainment strategy.
