‘Into the Woods’ Review: Not Your Typical Disney Fairy Tale, For Better Or Worse

by Matt Singer December 24, 2014 @ 12:13 PM
In the fall of 2013, APCO Worldside surveyed 70,000 people about the world’s biggest brands. They measured their responses in eight different ways—“understanding, approachability, relevance, admiration, curiosity, identification, empowerment, and pride.” The number one most loved company out of 600 choices: Disney.

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

by Mike Ryan December 16, 2014 @ 2:25 PM
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.

"What did John Krasinski do to me?!" Fun fact: Jimmy Kimmel and his wife live across the street from John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, which sounds lovely and fun and extraordinarily Hollywood. The Kimmels and the Krasinskis are pals! Really good ones, actually, like the kind that play pranks on each other.

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

by Jacob Hall December 10, 2014 @ 10:08 AM
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.

Why Meryl Streep Owes Emily Blunt (Big Time)

by Kate Erbland November 26, 2014 @ 9:29 AM
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.

Emily Blunt on 'Captain Marvel' Role: "Let's Call Marvel About That Right Now"

Warner Bros./Marvel
On Sunday afternoon, we spoke to Emily Blunt who is promoting her role in Disney’s ‘Into the Woods.’ During this conversation, Blunt referenced her character in this summer’s ‘Edge of Tomorrow,’ comparing that role to what a possible Marvel movie might be. It just so happens, Blunt’s name has been mentioned in Internet buzz as a possible lead in Marvel’s ‘Captain Marvel’ (due in 2018), which would be Marvel’s first movie with a female lead. Has Blunt heard this buzz? As it turns out, she has. And she seems to find that buzz quite flattering, but admits she has had no discussions with Marvel at this time.

by Britt Hayes October 23, 2014 @ 7:58 PM
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.
