'Into the Woods' teaser trailer: No one sings, but everyone wishes

You wished, and it has been granted: the Into the Woods teaser trailer has arrived.

Just five months out from the Christmas Day release, the teaser for Disney’s hotly anticipated movie musical adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s beloved 1987 show has hit the Internet, fresh on the heels of a batch of production photos that made their way online Wednesday.

Into the Woods tells the story of a gang of fairy tale characters who enter a dark forest in the hopes of achieving their deepest wishes. The film stars Meryl Streep as the Witch, James Corden as the Baker, Emily Blunt as the Baker’s Wife, Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Chris Pine as her Prince, Mackenzie Mauzy as Rapunzel, Billy Magnussen as her Prince, Christine Baranski as Cinderella’s Stepmother, Lilla Crawford as Red Riding Hood, Daniel Huttlestone as Jack, Tracey Ullman as Jack’s Mother, and Johnny Depp as the Wolf. (Yes, the cast is that large, and they’re all pretty important.)

Below, watch the teaser—which is curiously devoid of any song, but has plenty of money shots of Meryl Streep busting down the Baker’s door. READ FULL STORY

Let there be light (or color).

Jonas bursts out of his black-and-white world in the new trailer for The Giver, the YA film based on Lois Lowry’s beloved book. The clip may seem pretty dystopian paint by numbers (don’t question authority! etc.) — but, of course, Lowry wrote the book that all the others are borrowing from decades ago. Except in this version, Asher flies a plane. READ FULL STORY

'The Giver' newcomer Odeya Rush on standing up to Meryl Streep

The-Giver-Odeya-Rush

Odeya Rush left her first audition for The Giver thinking that she’d not only botched it, but that it was, in fact, the worst day of her life.

After all, most auditions are five to 10 minutes, even when you’re a lock for the role, said the now-17-year-old Israeli-born actress. Director Phillip Noyce kept her there for an hour. “I’d never been in an audition room for an hour. We did it so many times. At the end, [Noyce] kind of threw one word at me, like ‘great!’ or something,” she told EW. “I walked out thinking that I was never coming back.”

It took five more auditions and readings with a slew of potential Jonases, including eventual co-star Brenton Thwaites, for her to officially get the offer to play Fiona. A month later, she was on a plane to Cape Town, South Africa, to start filming. READ FULL STORY

'The Giver' character posters: The eyes have it

the-giver-06

All right, I’ll admit it: I spoke too soon.

You may recall the outcry that erupted when the first trailer for The Giver, a long-gestating film adaptation of Lois Lowry’s seminal middle-grade dystopian novel, hit the internet in March. The main gripe from fans: The entire trailer was in bright, lurid color, even though The Giver takes place in a world ruled by “sameness” — there’s no real free will, no real individuality, and, most importantly, no color besides shades of gray, at least until the story’s protagonist begins to learn more about the world as it used to be.

A featurette released a few weeks later, however, revealed that at least some parts of the film were shot in black and white — and a new set of character posters appear mostly without color, minus a small strip that runs through the center of each image. The message: “We hear you, Giver fans.” Think this means they might reconsider that random spaceship too?

Check below for the full set of posters, featuring eight of the film’s major characters — including those played by Meryl Streep, Jeff Bridges, and, yes, Taylor Swift. READ FULL STORY

'Sophie's Choice': The little girl and the story behind that haunting scene -- EXCLUSIVE

Anyone who’s seen Sophie’s Choice knows the scene. A frightened Polish mother stands in line for the German concentration camps, holding her young daughter while her young son huddles closely against her. A rapacious Nazi officer makes some lurid remarks and then demands that Sophie choose which of her children will survive. Only one. The other will die. Sophie protests. She screams. And then… she decides.

If that scene — punctuated by Meryl Streep’s silent scream — is forever branded on the back of your skull, imagine if you were the girl being ripped from Streep’s arms. Jennifer Lawn Lejeune was just 4 years old and had never acted before she was cast as Sophie’s daughter, and that day of filming was practically as harrowing for her as it was for the film’s characters.

A 'Heathers' sequel with Meryl Streep? How Winona Ryder almost made it happen

At the end of Heathers, the 1989 black comedy about homicidal teenagers and figurative chainsaw intercourse, Veronica (Winona Ryder) makes herself the school’s new alpha dog and chats with neck-braced Martha Dumptruck (Carrie Lynn) as the screen fades to black.

But if Ryder had her way, that wouldn’t be the last we saw of Veronica. READ FULL STORY
