Behind The Scenes: Into The Woods – From Stage To Screen!


Although Disney’s Into The Woods is doing well in theaters, it was considered to be a risky move – taking a three-hour hit Broadway musical and turning it into a two-hour movie. Plus, there was the fact that Into The Woods is not the lightest exploration of fairy tales.

On the plus side, director Rob Marshall was an old hand at adapting Broadway hits into movie form – his Chicago nabbed a few Oscars® – and the screenplay for Into The Woods was adapted by James Lapine, who, with Stephen Sondheim, created the original musical.

So, what did it take to take Into The Woods from stage to screen? Follow the jump to check out a video dealing with that very topic.

Into The Woods – What Comes After Happily Ever After?


Into The Woods takes four classic fairy tales – Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk and Rapunzel – and looks at what happens after their happily ever after endings. There have been several films in recent memory that have tackled this idea, but when Into The Woods debuted, it was a radical new idea. It’s still the best take on the idea.

Not-Quite-A-Fairytale Trailer: Into The Woods!


When Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s dark Broadway take on fairytales, Into The Woods, was optioned by Disney, there was a lot of fear that it would wind up being Disnified – so much so that Sondheim had to go on record as saying that that just wasn’t so.

Now the first teaser trailer for the film has been released and it looks a couple shades darker than the usual Disney version. Check it out after the jump.

Hope Springs: Two Old Pros Show How It’s Done!

1134602 - HOPE SPRINGS

Hope Springs isn’t the most original movie around. Indeed, its tale of an old married couple who have gone from passionate to barely roommates contains few surprises, plot-wise. What makes it work is the terrific chemistry between stars Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep and the way they add unexpected nuances in the oddest places.

MOVIE REVIEW: Fantastic Mr. Fox – Fabulous Fake Fur Fun!


Wes Anderson’s Fantastic Mr. Fox is one of the best films of the year!

Adapted from – and expanded upon – Roald Dahl’s excellent book, Fox is an original. An organic delight from start to finish. The story of a slightly egocentric fox [he has a trademark!] who gives up stealing chickens and squabs for the somewhat less exciting life of a newspaper columnist when his wife tells him she’s pregnant is an odd mix of civility and ferocity.
