Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep star in the new Into the Woods trailer
Maybe I’m just a skeptic, but I’m still not sold on Rob Marshall’s INTO THE WOODS. It seems like it has all the ingredients to be successful; an all star cast, an Oscar winning director, a well known story and of course, Johnny Depp in a ridiculous costume. But the trailers aren’t doing anything for me and I just can’t get into it. But since this is Disney’s big holiday movie, expect to see a lot of advertising for INTO THE WOODS over the next month and a half. And expect to get completely sick and tired of the song in the trailer. Check it out below and see if you’ll be taking your family to see this on Christmas Day.
The official synopsis for INTO THE WOODS: Into the Woods offers a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. 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, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them. INTO THE WOODS stars Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, Lilla Crawford, Daniel Huttlestone, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski, MacKenzie Mauzy, Billy Magnussen, Tammy Blanchard, Lucy Punch and Richard Glover. The Rob Marshall directed film hits theaters on December 25th.
