BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
The post-Christmas weekend, which is also the last of 2014, saw a nice boost for most movies and some exceptional openings for the newcomers. It paints a good picture for the weekend, but it wasn't enough to dig the 2014 box office out of its major slump.
If you need another reason to love Emily Blunt, all you have to do is click on this story.
A number of films moved up and down the Awards Blend charts as we sailed past Christmas. As of Friday, December 26, here’s where I think our major contenders stand.
Frozen 2, at the moment, isn’t a guarantee – even though it feels like a no-brainer to us. After hearing Emily Blunt sing in Into The Woods, hiring her for a part in Frozen 2 feels like a no-brainer, as well.
Much like a pair of socks under the tree, these 10 films are those wonderful gifts that never started giving. Read on and see which 2014 movies from which we'd love to get our money back.
The way Emily Blunt describes it, they all sat around an enormous table and sang their songs, accompanied by one man on a piano. They all stared at their script pages, “pretending to look at our lines” and getting used to not being embarrassed.
Emily Blunt emerged as the next big action star. She easily held her own alongside action movie mainstay Tom Cruise in the summer blockbuster Edge of Tomorrow -- and even surpassed him. In light of her success, some of her fans have been campaigning for her to follow this movie up with the title role in Marvel’s upcoming Captain Marvel, but what does Blunt think about all this?
It’s beginning to look a lot like the Christmas movie season. See what I did there? I took a classic song lyric and used if for my own purposes. Genius. As is often the case with this time of year, studios have a couple of bigger flicks hitting the screens for when people are off of work. We’ve got unbreakable dudes, gamblers and treks into the woods.
Meryl Streep will most definitely go down as one of Hollywood's most legendary actresses. The average person doesn't have enough fingers and toes to count the number of outstanding performances she has on her resume, and she has the hardware to prove it. But just because she exists at an exalted status at this point in her career doesn't mean that she is above getting advice.
Emily Blunt saved Meryl Streep’s life on the set of Into The Woods. And she’s now relived the events during her interview on The Late Show With David Letterman.
There’s a lot of talent on display both in front of and behind this camera, with the music and lyrics of Stephen Sondheim giving Into the Woods a great foundation.
I am beginning to think Disney's Into The Woods may kill me, it so enjoys toying with my heart. Just yesterday the reveal of the long-shrouded Wolf (brought to life by Johnny Depp) slaughtered my expectations for this movie musical translation of the Stephen Sondheim Broadway production. But now Disney has unveiled the gorgeous new Into the Woods featurette you see above, which gives us our best look yet at this sprawling world of fairy tales gone feral.
How did I come to this place of hopelessness and despair? There was a time when I was eager to see Into The Wood's enthralling and rich Broadway musical of twisted fairy tales get a big shiny big screen translation. Let's step through the news that in turns won my interest and broke my heart with a helpful timeline. And GIFS, naturally.
Into the Woods opens in theaters on Christmas Day, but Marshall warns potential audiences, “I didn’t want this to look like a cartoon world. It’s not sunny, sunny, sunny—we wanted a sense of danger.”
While Johnny Depp is in a bit of a slump right now, he can still be considered somewhat of a hot ticket. If it wasn't for two fourteen year old girls in the 1980's though, he might not have gotten the role that jumpstarted his career.
Just yesterday Disney unfurled a treasure trove of stills from their much anticipated movie musical Into The Woods, but today they've given up a first look of its fairy tale figures in action in the form of a teaser and a trailer.
We've been reporting plenty on Into The Woods and the incredible cast that Disney has assembled for the live-action movie musical. Now, after months of having to repost that one mediocre picture of Meryl Streep looking like a retired Bellatrix Lestrange, we finally have an avalanche of new images!
And once again, this Disney insider is Stephen Sondheim himself. Though he's not calling it backpedalling. He's blaming The New Yorker for "misreporting."
Are you a fan of Stephen Sondheim's Into The Woods? Were you looking forward to Disney's tentpole movie musical version of it? Well, if you said yes to both, we've got bad news.
There's a barrage of high-profile projects coming out in the next 10 months that can qualify for the Academy Awards, but which 10 features do we feel are fighting fit for Oscar?
There should be a little something for everyone in the coming year. And to help you plan out your movie-watching year, we singled out 14 titles we’re looking forward to in 2014, as well as a list of additional can’t-miss movies.
This is one of the more high-profile release to come in 2014, as the Oscar-nominated Marshall is once again lined up with a prestigious project populated by some of the biggest names in the business, hopefully turning Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides into a very distant memory.
Brownlee isn’t exactly a child actress, though the ten-year-old is no stranger to singing professionally. Not long ago, Brownlee was a little belter out of Essex England who enjoyed singing at home. But when Ellen DeGeneres caught wind of her and her cousin Rosie McClelland’s cover of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass”—complete with tiaras and tutus—the girls became a recurring facet of Ellen.
The 28-year-old actor has appeared in a handful of indie films, including Whit Stillman’s Damsels in Distress, Ramaa Mosley’s The Brass Teapot, and Zal Batmanglij’s political thriller The East. But his more relevant work might be his performances on Broadway, where he is currently starring in in the comedy Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. He has earned a Tony nomination for the play. But can he sing? Yep.
Even though it looks like he’ll still be some kind of an anti-hero, it isn’t often we see Gyllenhaal as anything but the good guy. Actually, it’s in indie films like The Good Girl and Donnie Darko that the actor is allowed to embrace sketchy morals.
