The Princess Bride

  1. The Princess Bride as a Horror Movie? Inconceivable!

    Is this a killing book?

    I didn't need these creepy feelings about Westley. Take them back, YouTuber Phillip Raupach, please and thank you.

  2. There’s An Alternate Universe Where John Mayer Wrote a The Princess Bride Musical

    "There's a shortage of perfect breasts in this world..." ["Your Body Is a Wonderland" plays in the distance.]

    The Princess Bride is already getting a stage production, but in a recent interview director Rob Reiner revealed that musician John Mayer, among others, already took a crack at musicalizing what many consider to be one of the most perfect—certainly one of the most quotable—movies ever made. But it was not as the Broadway gods wished.

  3. A Trailer For Galavant, ABC’s Medieval Comedy Musical TV Series

    Cautiously Optimistic

    Musical TV series don't have a great track record but this new one from ABC might be just what the doctor ordered. At their recent upfronts, ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee called Galavant "Spamalot meets Princess Bride," which is pretty much on point. I'd add Robin Hood Men in Tights to that as well. I'll give it a watch but it will be interesting how it keeps up the pace each week. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  5. Andrew DeGraff Maps Your Favorite Movies With Beauty and Precision

    We've featured the work of Andrew DeGraff before, the carefully arranged, graphically precise maps of character locations in Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and others of our favorite films. This weekend, however, he opened a show of new paintings in Los Angeles, featuring maps based a slew of other films, including Alien, The Breakfast Club, The Princess Bride, and a massive map of The Lord of the Rings. But if you want to see that one in beautiful high res, you'll have to check out /Film.

  8. As We Wish: Cary Elwes Is Going To Write A Princess Bride Memoir

    Aaaaaas Yooooou Wiiiiiiiiiiiish

    Besides reboots, it's not often we find ourselves writing news stories about 80s films. And now we've gotten two in the same month about the same film - The Princess Bride. We recently learned it was being turned into a stage production but today, it's a book. A book actor Cary Elwes will be writing about his time working on The Princess Bride

  9. Disney Working on a Stage Version of The Princess Bride

    Aaaaaas Yooooou Wiiiiiiiiiiiish

    You are correct, this is not a screencap from The Princess Bride. No, it's from another piece of modern source material that parodied a very specific period in European writing and then was converted into a stage musical. It's just that no one spontaneously bursts into song in The Princess Bride like they do in Monty Python's The Holy Grail, but that might very well change.
