Into the Woods

Into the Woods Video: Meryl Streep sings! She stars as a witch in the big-screen version of Into the Woods, an adaptation of the Broadway musical, and a new behind-the-scenes video includes snippets of her lovely singing voice, previously heard in 1990's Postcards from the Edge and 2008's Mama Mia. Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt, Chris Pine, James Corden and Johnny Depp also star; the movie heads to theaters on December 25. [Movies Coming Soon]


Anna Karenina

Therese Raquin: Keira Knightley will make her Broadway debut in Thérèse Raquin. The actress (above in Anna Karenina) is not a complete novice to stage acting; she previously starred in two West End productions in London. The play will open in October 2015. In the meantime, she stars in Laggies, opening today, and costars in spy drama The Imitation Game, hitting theaters in November. [New York Times]


Festival Express / Life Itself

The Grateful Dead: Martin Scorsese will serve as executive producer for a new documentary on music group the Grateful Dead. Amir Bar-Lev (The Tillman Story) will direct; plans are for the film to be ready in time for the band's 50th anniversary next year. The band became associated with the psychedelic movement in San Francisco in the late 1960s and then became legendary for their extended stage shows. [Deadline]



Laggies TV Spot: Before she heads to Broadway, Keira Knightley stars as a young woman stuck in permanent adolescence in the lighthearted comedy-drama Laggies, which opens in theaters today. Chloe Grace Moretz and Sam Rockwell also star; a new TV spot is utterly charming. [Movies Coming Soon]
