A darkly comical teaser for Into the Woods arrived this week. This is the star-packed fairly tale mash-up based on Stephen Sondheim's award-winning 1980s Broadway musical. It shows glimpses of Meryl Streep (as the wicked witch), Johnny Depp (the big bad wolf), Chris Pine (the handsome prince), Anna Kendrick (Cinderella), and James Cordon and Emily Blunt (the baker and his wife). It's out in December in America and January in Britain. Watch 'Into the Woods' Trailer.
And there's also a trailer this week for The Theory of Everything, a biopic about noted astrophysicist Stephen Hawking that opens in US cinemas in November and in Britain in January. The film looks seriously inspirational as it focusses on the relationship between Hawking (a storming performance from Eddie Redmayne) and his wife (Felicity Jones) as they deal with his motor neurone disease diagnosis. It's directed by Oscar-winner James Marsh (Man on Wire). Watch 'The Theory of Everything' Trailer.
