Emily Blunt on ‘Into the Woods‘ and Why She Thinks ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Didn't Catch On

While standing in the hallway of New York’s Waldorf Astoria, Emily Blunt approached me, assertively, and said, “We’ve met before.” This happens from time to time before interviews, even from people I’ve never met, but it’s usually with an I hope I’m right question uptick at the end. This seemed different. I responded, “We have, Comic-Con two years ago. There’s no way you remember that.” Chit chat continued and, it was at this point, that a publicist approached us and asked that we not conduct an interview in the hallway, so we were led into a hotel conference room with a big round table. Even in a desolate room like this one, Blunt has the ability to be on and funny when nothing funny should ever happen in a room like this.

Things apparently got buckwild on the set of ‘Into the Woods,’ with acting queen of the world (that is her official title, by the way) Meryl Streep very nearly dying (read: probably not dying, but let’s go with it) when she almost fell off a table. It was, however, a witchy table that she happened to be jumping on while playing a witch, complete with witchy robes, which she (witchily?) tripped on. Streep’s fall was broken by one single brave soul: Emily Blunt.

Although the earliest looks at ‘Into the Woods’ gave us the impression that this wasn’t a musical at all, the latest trailers and featurettes have been thankfully much more musically-focused. The newest featurette gives us another peek behind the scenes of the upcoming film with music by the legendary Stephen Sondheim, and features none other than Queen Meryl Streep herself belting out “Stay With Me” as the movie’s wonderful and wicked witch.

'Into the Woods' Trailer: The Cast Actually Gets Around to Singing This Time

The first 'Into the Woods' trailer was strangely lacking in singing, which was an odd way to sell a movie based on one of the most beloved of all modern musicals. Thankfully, Disney has course corrected with trailer number two, which actually lets us see and hear the ensemble cast performing Stephen Sondhiem's iconic songs. It's an improvement by default.

When we saw the initial teaser for Disney's 'Into the Woods' movie, the thing that was missing from our first peek at the upcoming musical was the actual, you know, musical part. But thanks to this new featurette on the film, we can hear bits and pieces of the songs from the adaptation of the classic musical, from the mouths of stars like Meryl Streep and Anna Kendrick.

'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.
