INTO THE WOODS Images; Anna Kendrick is Cinderella, Chris Pine is Prince Charming, and Johnny Depp is the Big Bad Wolf
Director Rob Marshall’s (Chicago) adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical Into The Woods has appeared online. The Disney movie looks to put a modern twist on the Brothers Grimm fairy tales with intertwining plots from a few stories you may have read. It’s going to be a huge holiday movie I think; Marshall even had everyone sing live on set, and people love that. Sadly, we only get to see Johnny Depp’s hair arm.
Here’s the official synopsis:

This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden and Emily Blunt) their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.

The trailer for Robert Redford’s thriller The Company You Keep does a good job at getting my curiosity heightened for what looks like an entertaining cat and mouse game.

How many fat jokes can you fit into one trailer? Wait, is that a pun? Here’s the trailer for the musical “comedy” Pitch Perfect starring Anna Kendrick who goes to an all-girls college and reluctantly joins a cappella group. From there as I said we get a lot of fat jokes and sing offs.
Do these people ever get time to study? That would be awesome if the movie just freeze frames on them celebrating a win at regionals when a caption comes on the screen saying: “the group celebrated that night, but were in dismay the next morning when they realized they didn’t study for exams. They all failed”. Pay me.
Pitch Perfect opens on October 5th.
Here is the first trailer for End of Watch, which I was a little skeptical of as it uses the found-footage gimmick. Saying that, it does seem to work pretty well here; who among us didn’t like watching COPS on TV back in the day? Writer-director David Ayer (Dark Blue, Training Day) knows a thing or two about cop stories, so we are in good company there.
The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña, End of Watch opens September 28th.
A powerful story of family, friendship, love, honor and courage, End Of Watch stars Academy Award nominee Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña as young Los Angeles police officers Taylor and Zavala as they patrol the city’s meanest streets of south central Los Angeles.
Giving the story a gripping, first-person immediacy, the action unfolds entirely through footage from the handheld HD cameras of the police officers, gang members, surveillance cameras, and citizens caught in the line of fire to create a riveting portrait of the city’s darkest, most violent corners, the cops who risk their lives there every day, and the price they and their families are forced to pay.
Here is the new US trailer for ParaNorman, the great looking stop-motion animated film from Chris Butler (Coraline) and Sam Fell (The Tale of Despereaux). We showed you two other trailer worth watching last year.
In “ParaNorman,” a small town comes under siege by zombies. Who can it call? Only misunderstood local boy Norman, who is able to speak with the dead. In addition to the zombies, he’ll have to take on ghosts, witches and, worst, of all, moronic grown-ups, to save his town from a centuries-old curse. But this young ghoul whisperer may find his paranormal activities pushed to their otherworldly limits.
ParaNorman opens in the US on August 17, 2012 and in the UK on September 14, 2012.

Based on a pregnancy manual the comedy follows a few storylines centered around childbirth and raising kids

Below are two trailers for ParaNorman, a stop-motion animated film that centers on a young boy named Norman who is able to see ghosts, and it’s actually no big deal for him. It becomes a big deal however, when his small town comes under attack from zombies and ghost and he must save the day by stopping a centuries-old curse. This movie looks awesome, the second trailer below is the US version and it’s one of the best trailers I’ve seen in a long time. No narration, no set up, just good music and great looking animation.
ParaNorman opens in the US on August 17, 2012 and in the UK on September 14, 2012. Watch the goods below:
