    Sondheim’s beloved musical retains its dark charms.

    For many, bringing Into the Woods from stage to screen was something they never wanted to see attempted; and yet, the material just seemed too perfect for cinema to resist.

  3. First English Edition of the Original Grimm’s Fairy Tales Will Leave in All the Gnarly Parts

    Once upon a disemboweling...

    Most people already know that the, um, colorful stories of the Brothers Grimm would be unrecognizable next to the wholesome characters they've inspired in pop culture. But up until now, English speakers haven't had a translation that captured the full depravity of the Brothers' original work.

  5. Our First Look at Johnny Depp In Into the Woods Is Here, And It’s Ridiculous

    AAAAAAAAHHHHHH!

    Though perhaps it's not too ridiculous, on the scale of Johnny Depp-ness. Still... I'm not sure what to make of this. It's a goddamned fur zoot suit. If you need a palate cleanser, Entertainment Weekly's alternate covers—featuring Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Emily Blunt, James Corden, and Mackenzie Mauzy—are behind the jump.

  9. New Live Action Hansel & Gretel In The Works, Sadly Will NOT Have Jeremy Renner

    But it does have Neil Gaiman, so... fair trade-off.

    Were you hungering (jokes!) for another interpretation of the Brothers Grimm's Hansel and Gretel story? Because you're going to get one, and this time it might actually be a legitimately good film. No, really: Neil Gaiman is involved. It can't get much better than that.
