    Yes hello, Norbert Leo Butz? Are you busy?

  3. Review: Into The Woods Delivers What Fans Want

    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. When Into the Woods was announced, there was a sense of dread amongst fans, along with the excitement. Was it really a good idea to change Jack's age? Was Meryl Streep a good casting choice, after missing the mark with the music in Mamma Mia? Would a Disney movie actually keep the Wolf’s dark vibe?

    I wasn't aware "buddy" was gendered?

  7. Watch The First Promo Trailer For NBC’S Peter Pan Live!

    And it's NOT terrible?

    I was all ready to good-naturedly laugh at this but... I kind of love it? Sure, it's just footage from the shooting of the last few "sneak peak" photo sessions, but something about the emphasis on all the behind-the-scenes production for the event struck me as weirdly charming. Which is fantastic, but I'm still fully prepared to laugh at Christopher Walken Hook when the special premieres on December 4th. That's happening . Let's just accept it.

  9. 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. We need to talk about Meryl's hair(yl).

Like last year's The Sound of Music, it will be a live production, and—oh, who are we kidding. You're all staring at Christopher Walken's giant fake mole, right? I know. It's okay. We all are.
