Into The Woods is an early 2015 movie that I am already looking forward to as some of out favourite fairy story characters are brought together in one big musical adventure.
A star-studied cast has been assembled including Johnny Depp, Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, James Corden, Emily Blunt and Chris Pine are some of the terrific and talented names on board.
And it is Meryl Streep who is in the spotlight in this new featurette – released by Playbill – as we see her sing to her daughter in a moving moment from the movie:
Rob Marshall is in the director’s chair for the film, which is based on the musical by the fantastic Stephen Sondheim.
Into the Woods is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests.
This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy) – all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (Corden & Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Streep) who has put a curse on them.
There may be some negativity over the release of a fourth Pirates movie – however I’m looking forward to it as it promises to be more like the first.
Johnny Depp is back as Captain Jack Sparrow but this time aournd it’s Rob Marshall who is behind the camera. As you may expect Geoffrey Rush is back as Barbosa but this time around they are joined by Penelope Cruz and Ian McShane – who is taking on the role of Blackbeard.
Jack Sparrow crosses paths with a woman from his past and he’s not sure if it’s love or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth.
When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard, Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is released 20th May. Take a look at the new poster for the movie:
Now I know that many people raised an eyebrow when it was revealed that Pirates of the Caribbean would be returning for a fourth movie.
But filming is underway and Johnny Depp is all set to return as Captain Jack Sparrow.
This time around it’s Rob Marshall in the director’s chair and Ian McShane and Penelope Cruz replace Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley.
In this action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise, Captain Jack Sparrow crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), and he’s not sure if it’s love–or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth.
When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.
