Trailer: Into the Woods

The first trailer gave me nothing to work with, as it was all just graphics and all the actors looking unusual. This however gives a glimpse of what the movie is really going to be about. Come Oscar season, if slots for best actress isn't going to be filled, I bet Meryl Streep will be a defacto nominee. Though set in a dark, bleak, atmosphere, it seems whimsical enough to work. However, if it translates well onscreen will be the question. Rob Marshall directed Chicago, which is one of the best onscreen musicals I've seen. He worked with a dark background there and filled the stage with enough pop of color that the musical numbers become distinct. He might just work his charm here, and along with a great cast, there is potential that this might work.
