'Into the Woods' isn't just Disney's big Christmas Day release this year and it isn't just one of the more impressive ensembles assembled for a fantasy film. It's the long-awaited big-screen version of Stephen Sondheim's beloved musical of the same name ... which makes it all the more baffling that the first 'Into the Woods' trailer does everything in its power to hide the fact that this movie is a musical. There is not a single sung word in all 107 seconds.
Today brings a new, extended trailer for 'The Giver,' the upcoming film based on the classic, award-winning young-adult novel of the same name by Lowis Lowry, and featuring Meryl Streep as a strict authoritarian figure in a dystopian future (because these are the only kinds of futures young adults have).
Young-adult movies aren't all romance and supernatural stuff, and in a few months we'll see one of the most acclaimed young-adult novels of all time brought to life on the big screen with 'The Giver.' But before then, we've got a whole set of big, beautiful new character posters to introduce you to the cast.
Sometimes, the jokes really just write themselves -- at least, when the jokes center on a punchy fake title, like a "Meryl-Go-Round." You already know what it is -- it's a Meryl Streep-themed merry-go-round -- and you probably already want to know how you can ride it.
The Weinstein Co. failed miserably with their last adaptation of a young-adult book franchise, 'Vampire Academy,' but perhaps they can turn it around with a beloved classic. The first 'The Giver' trailer has debuted online, giving us a look at a different futuristic dystopia, because we don't have enough of those already.
If you're still laughing at the four fake YouTube movie trailers Jimmy Kimmel rolled out at on the special post-Oscars installment of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' the late-night host has a treat for you -- a hilarious behind-the-scenes look at just how they made some of Hollywood's most celebrated stars turn their talents to the outing.
Despite such tragic and widely debated events involving guns over the past year, such as Sandy Hook, polls suggest no decline in gun purchases anytime soon. But perhaps movie producer Harvey Weinstein and Oscar-nominated actress Meryl Streep will change that, as the duo are teaming up for an anti-gun movie said to shake the NRA (National Rifle Association) to its core.
'August: Osage County' looks like the kind of film that's primed to win Oscars. Based on the Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Tracy Letts, the film is a high impact dramedy filled with all of the emotional turmoil and familial dysfunction you can imagine. The new trailer is probably only the tip of the iceberg.
