The First “Into The Woods” Trailer Has Arrived

Into The Woods
Not Convinced

The first trailer for “Into The Woods” is here, and it gives us pretty much nothing to work with. There’s no singing, which is a little odd considering that this movie is supposed to be a musical. There’s also no Johnny Depp, and about three seconds worth of words. Not impressed so far. I’m already disappointed enough that this movie has been Disneyfied — in its onstage life, “Into The Woods” was always meant to be a fairytale for adults with some not-so-pleasant themes. Since Meryl Streep, Chris Pine, and Anna Kendrick are in the kickass cast, I’m still holding out hope that this movie will be salvageable. Disney, don’t let me down! [DListed]

Etsy Spotlight: You Totally Need This Handmade “I’ll Have What She’s Having” Card

When Harry Met Sally

This summer marks the 25th anniversary of “When Harry Met Sally,” which is obviously the most beloved film of all time (or at least, it is to me). The Etsy shop Seas and Peas clearly knows how to celebrate with this awesome card depicting one of the movie’s finer moments. It’s handmade out of recycled paper, so even the trees will thank you for it! In Sally’s honor, I vote for the creation of a “days of the week underpants” companion card. [Seas and Peas]

That Time Two Chimps Went To See “Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes” In The Movie Theater

Chimps See "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes" In Movie Theater
They Gave It Two Opposable Thumbs Up

I will never forgive myself for not being at this Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, movie theater last weekend. Several employees from Myrtle Beach Safari decided to give their chimps a night out at BigD movies (yes, that’s its real name) to go see none other than “Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes.” If I were there, I’d say screw the movie, I’m watching the real monkeys.

19 Things You Need To Know About “The Fault In Our Stars”

the-fault-in-our-stars

We recently prepped ourselves for “The Fault In Our Stars” by reading the book before the movie’s release.

It was beautiful, perfect, and we sobbed throughout its entirety. It’s a love story that we haven’t seen in a long time and shows that no matter how sick you are, you should be living your life to the fullest while you can. A good lesson for everyone to learn.

TFIOS is out this weekend, so we put together 19 things that you should know about the movie in advance of buying your ticket. Don’t worry, no spoilers here! Read more on YourTango...

Seth Rogen Discusses A Groundbreaking New Concept: A Movie Wife That Likes To Have Fun

Seth Rogen On Movie Marriages

“My wife read the ["Neighbors"] script. She’s a writer. She’s one of the people who was like, ‘This isn’t how it would be. We get along, I want to have fun too…’ And then as we started talking about it, that actually became the most exciting idea of the movie to us, that we could portray a couple where the wife is just as fun-loving and irresponsible as the guy, and they get along really well. In a comedy, that’s almost non-existent. An actual healthy couple that really likes each other.”

Seth Rogen tells Studio 360 how his new movie, “Neighbors,” ended up defying the “nagging, super serious wife” trope and making Rose Byrne’s character just as fun-loving and misbehaving as her hubby. Turns out we can thank Seth’s wife, Lauren Miller (cowriter of the hilarious “For A Good Time Call…” BTW), for shaking some sense into the dudes who wrote the original script. Seth also had some really sweet things to say about how his own marriage is nothing like movie marriages: Keep reading »

“Heathers” Is Now An Off-Broadway Musical

What's Your Damage?

The oh-so-beloved 1980s movie “Heathers” is now a musical. I’ll wait for a moment while you squeal with glee (at least, that’s how I’d react if I were you). Rumors that “Heathers” would be headed to the stage, along with several incarnations of the production, have made the rounds these past few years. The show is finally playing off-Broadway at New World Stages in Manhattan and a cast recording is set to release in June. Playbill has shared some rehearsal footage to give us a better idea of what to expect. Keep reading »

Would You Watch A Documentary About Blogging?

So Many Bloggers, So Little Time!

Filmmaker Christopher Wiegand drove all over the United States interviewing bloggers (mostly of the “mommy blog” variety, it seems) about why they do what they do, and I’m cautiously curious. As someone who is a bit infatuated with the land of blogging — I even wrote my thesis on it! — I’d like to see if Wiegand has revealed anything groundbreaking about this bizarre industry. The film’s description is confusing at best. According to Wiegand:

The name “American Blogger” came not because I am representing all of America but because I am traveling America (40 states)  in my airstream and telling the story of the Blogger. This film is not supposed to be, nor is it, representing bloggers or America as a whole by any means. These are the women that said yes to my request, they knew my wife and trusted that I would tell this story in a positive way.

Um. Not what I was expecting. The film will be released on iTunes in early June, so you can find out for yourself just what this film is all about. Maybe we’ll be pleasantly surprised? [IndieWire]

Etsy Spotlight: Cute Pencils For Virgins Who Can’t Drive

It’s been forever since I actually used a pencil (do I still remember how? Kidding! Kind of!), but after seeing this awesome set of hot pink “Clueless”-themed pencils, I’m ready to bring graphite back into my life in a big way. I actually used to have one of those feather pens that Cher uses in the movie (I used it to take my history tests in junior high), but these are way better. They’ll go perfectly with my plaid mini skirt, knee-highs, and the loqued out Jeep daddy bought me. [$8 for set of 6, The Carbon Crusader]

Watch This: Celine Dion Finally Reveals Her Muppet Crush

Celine Dion Reveals Her Muppet Crush
Hint: He's Green.

I can’t believe I still haven’t seen “Muppets Most Wanted.” Not only does it feature all my favorite Muppets, it’s got two of my favorite comedians, Ricky Gervais and Tina Fey, and a cameo from my favorite singer of all time, Celine Dion. Life dream status. Anyway, while doing press for the movie, Celine answered a few important questions — including which muppet she has a crush on — in her trademark Celine style (read: a little crazy). Hopefully her hubby Rene doesn’t have jealousy issues surrounding frogs… [YouTube via Gawker]

Watch Jennifer Lawrence Dance Her Heart Out In This Deleted “American Hustle” Scene

Watch Jennifer Lawrence Dance Her Heart Out In This Deleted "American Hustle" Scene
Only JLaw Could Make Lip-Syncing This Photogenic!

Remember when Jennifer Lawrence manically cleans the house while singing “Live And Let Die” in “American Hustle”? Well, she also filmed a scene singing to “Evil Ways” by Santana. I think the director made the right call in choosing the first song (no song has more drama than “Live And Let Die”), but I’m all for extra footage of JLaw dancing it out, so let’s rejoice that this scene was released!
