Into the Woods and Testament of Youth bring out starry red carpets in London, while celebrities line up for the People's Choice Awards in L.A. and the National Board of Review in New York. We also get the first glimpse of Paul Rudd in Ant-Man, the next Nicholas Sparks romance The Longest Ride and the digitally animated Peanuts Movie...
In London, Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Daniel Huttlestone and Tracey Ullman were on hand for the UK premiere of Into the Woods this week. The film has been a box office hit in America over the past two weeks, and opens in Britain this weekend.
It's taken a long time for this stage musical to make it to the big screen, and while director Rob Marshall once again fails to give the story a sharp focus (see also Chicago and Nine), he at least lets the music and characters shine. Originally staged on Broadway in 1987, this musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine is a gleeful mash-up of fairy tales that continues on past the "happily ever after", eventually turning rather dark and emotional.
Once upon a time, there was a Baker and his Wife (James Corden and Emily Blunt) who learn that they can't have children because the Witch (Meryl Streep) next door has cursed them. She offers to break the spell if they collect a cow, a cape, a slipper and a lock of hair. Meanwhile, Jack (Daniel Huttlestone) annoys his mother (Tracey Ullman) by selling the family cow for a handful of "magic" beans; Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford) dodges a leery Wolf (Johnny Depp) following her through the woods; Cinderella (Anna Kendrick) sneaks to the festival to meet the Prince (Chris Pine) against the wishes of her nasty stepmum (Christine Baranski); and Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy) defies her mother by letting her hair down for a Prince (Billy Magnussen). After knotting together, each plot strand resolves happily. Until the next day.
This is very much a story of two halves, with the sharp, snappy, hilarious first act contrasting strongly against the rather disturbingly grim and grisly second act, as everyone's story unravels to reveal each character's deep neediness. What makes this show so clever is the way it undermines the usual fairy-tale happiness of most stories, cautioning that this artifice is actually a problem for children. While the songs are all clever and thoroughly engaging, none of them is particularly hummable on first listen, but each is packed with witty wordplay and serious subtext that gets under the skin.

Ok, so we already knew Meryl Streep had some pretty impressive pipes on her following her spectacular performance in 'Mammi Mia!' which, understandably, was then nominated for a Grammy award for Best Soundtrack, but 'Into The Woods' is something else. It's one thing being able to knock out a pop hit, it's another to reach impossible heights in emotional show tunes; co-star James Corden insists she's done just that.
When a Baker (James Corden) and his wife (Emily Blunt) are unable to have children due to a curse, they are advised by a witch (Meryl Streep) to venture into the woods in order to find a cow as white as milk, a cape as red as blood, hair as yellow as corn and a slipper as pure as gold. Along the way, they become intertwined in the stories of 'Jack and the Beanstalk', 'Little Red Riding Hood', 'Rapunzel', and 'Cinderella', in this original story based upon Grimm's classic fairy tales.

The 35 year-old British actor is reportedly the television network's first choice to replace the departing Ferguson.
CBS have reportedly found a replacement for Craig Ferguson to host the 'Late Late Show,' and their pick is British actor James Corden. The 35 year-old TV personality is likely to begin emceeing the late night talk-show once Ferguson leaves this coming Christmas, The Wrap reports.
Corden is reportedly being targeted by CBS
Corden's successful career took off when he co-created the award-winning British series 'Gavin & Stacy,' he also starred as Paul Potts 2013's 'One Chance,' and can be currently seen alongside Keira Knightley in 'Begin Again.'
Fans of the Oscar-winning 2006 Irish film Once (and its more recent stage-musical adaptation) may find this American drama a little derivative, but it's a strong story in its own right. This time writer-director John Carney has assembled a starry cast to nicely capture the rhythms of New York's streets. And the songs, while not quite as integral to the story, are gorgeous.
The opening sequence sets up the story from two perspectives, as music producer Dan (Mark Ruffalo) hears songwriter Greta (Keira Knightley) reluctantly perform at a bar's open-mic night. Both of these people are at their rope's end: always seeking offbeat talent, Dan is on the outs with his record label partner (Yasiin Bey, aka Mos Def), and wants to reconnect with his estranged wife and teen daughter (Catherine Keener and Hailee Steinfeld). Meanwhile, Greta has just been dumped by her rising pop-star boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine), who got his big break from a song she wrote. To stop her moping, her pal Steve (James Corden) encourages her to start singing her own songs. In Greta, Dan sees the kind of artist he longs to make records with, so with nothing to lose the two set out to record her songs at locations around the city for a new album.
Like Once, this is a love story that doesn't actually involve romance: these two people need each other to discover their life's passions. So Ruffalo and Knightley get the chance to create some terrific chemistry without much of a threat that they'll fall for each other. Indeed, each has other fish to fry, as they try to sort out their emotional connections elsewhere. Their flirty friendship plays out in a fresh, effortless way that generates some complex emotions and ideas. Ruffalo is always great at creating these kinds of loose, slightly hapless characters, while Knightley delivers an even more earthy performance, letting her own sparky personality emerge on-screen for the first time along with some serious skill as a singer. And the supporting cast add texture in just the right places.

It has been written and directed by John Carney ('Once', 'On the Edge', 'Zonad', 'The Rafters'), and is the story of how music can change many people for the better - and, sometimes, for the worst.

Come on, let's do this." Having learned his lesson from last month's blunder, the One Direction singer wasn't taking any chances and instead replied "Great, but what is it with you and lapdancing? What happened the last time we did that wasn't pretty."
Steve Carell has revealed during the 'Anchorman 2' première that the filming was difficult, due to Will Ferrell being too funny on the set.
Actor Steve Carell had difficulty working on the 'Anchorman' sequel because he found Will Ferrell so funny it was ''almost impossible'' to work with him. The 51-year-old 'Despicable Me' actor apparently had no quarrels with immediately signing on for 'Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues', as the 2004 original was the "best fun" he's ever had. On the flip side, it made his job incredibly difficult, as he was almost unable to film certain scenes as he struggled to keep his composure.
In an interview with 'Bang Showbiz' at 'Anchorman 2''s premiere at The Odeon, Leicester Square, London, the 'Crazy, Stupid, Love.' star explained that: 'There's a scene we did in a lighthouse with Ron and it's probably the scene I laughed the hardest at. Will was so especially funny that day, it was almost impossible to get it [the scene] done.
The movie will tell the life story of the first 'Britain's Got Talent' winner.
James Corden stars as TV talent contest winner Paul Potts in One Chance, the sensational movie that has made waves in the UK and is now headed towards the US to spread the inspirational true story of one mind transformation from shop worker to opera singer.
James Corden Is Paul Potts In This Uplifting Success Story.
Directed by The Devil Wears Prada's James Frankel, the movie follows an aspiring singer who is held back by his low self-confidence and tedious shop job. It is only when he meets his wife, Julie-Ann Cooper (Alexandra Roach), that he receives the support he needs to enrol in a Venecian opera school.
When Paul Potts, an opera singer, auditioned for the first series of 'Britain's Got Talent' in 2007, he blew everyone away with his incredibly powerful vocals. Going on to win the show was a surprise to no-one, and it was not just his soulful arias that moved audiences, but his own emotional life story. Growing up he was frequently bullied and found consolation only in that of operatic music. Later, he met his devoted wife Julie-Ann Cooper who relentlessly encouraged him to perform and attend an opera school in Italy. His lack of confidence in himself caused most other people not to believe in him, but he took a brave step in leaving his job as a shop manager and giving 'BGT' a good shot - a decision that would change his life beyond recognition forever.

Johnny Depp, Lily Cole, Chris Pine and Tom Ford are amongst those featured in McCartney's exciting new video.
A week after Sir Paul McCartney's latest solo album, New, debuted, the brand new video for track 'Queenie Eye' premieres today (October 24, 2013). However, this isn't any old music video: the former Beatle has called on a few friends to help, with stars including Gary Barlow, Alice Eve, Kate Moss, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, James Corden and Jeremy Irons all featured.
A Little Help From My Friends: Paul McCartney Prepared To Launch New Music Video.
The song is named after and draws inspiration from a childhood game McCartney used to play in Liverpool. "Queenie eye, queenie eye, who's got the ball? It isn't in my pocket. O-U-T spells OUT!" sang a young Macca and the same lyrics are called upon for Paul's latest, upbeat track that has been described by Q Magazine as "jaw-dropping."
Pour yourself a glass of mulled wine, nudge Grandad to stop him snoring and grab the cat: 'One Chance' is on.
Picture the scene if you will. It's Christmas Eve. The kids are going crazy, running around, watching the skies. You've just poured yourself another brandy and, oh look, One Chance is just about to start on BBC1. You know, the Paul Potts movie with that fella from Gavin & Stacey in it.
It's going to happen. The movie - which hits cinemas in the UK on Friday (October 18, 2013) - is likely to become one of the festive feel-good movies that all the family can sit down and enjoy.
It stars James Corden as Potts, a bullied shop assistant by day and amateur opera singer by night. UK audiences will be familiar with the story. Potts became an instant singing phenomenon after appearing on Simon Cowell's ITV show Britain's Got Talent.

James Corden has won high praise for his turn as tenor Paul Potts.
The British media went into frenzy early on Tuesday (September 10, 2013) when James Corden had the guile to admit that he didn't provide the opera for his new movie One Chance, based on the story of Britain's Got Talent winner Paul Potts.
Although he's known to be a competent singer (he has just begun filming the Hollywood musical The Woods), Corden confessed that the vocals heard in David Frankel's new movie were provided by Paul Potts himself. Which sort of makes sense really.
"It was very, very straightforward - I would pretend to be singing opera, and then Paul would go into the studio and loop to my mouth. I hope I haven't given it away too much, but that's basically what happened," the actor told press including the Independent at the Toronto Film Festival this week.

They have appeared on the talk show on multiple occasions as they have gained the approval of the crowd.
Is new Fox sitcom going to be lost in translation?
We’re already grimacing at the prospect of an American remake of The Inbetweeners, but us Brits should perhaps be more worried that the US is also making what is effectively a Stateside version of one of our most British of comedies, Gavin & Stacey.
The trailer for Us And Them has been revealed and we’re really not sure about it, even though it does star Alexis Bledel and Jason Ritter. Ok, so the American Office ended up being a surprise success, and we have to hand it to them for pulling it off, but an American Inbetweeners? Gavin & Stacey? They go too far. As usual it looks like the comedy is going to lose all its subtlety with everything glammed up somewhat in what in the UK was traditionally a pretty humble, sweet natured comedy even as it made stars of Matt Horne and James Corden.

Ben Howard Is Surprise Winner In Otherwise Bland Brit Awards, 2013
Last night’s Brits ceremony could well have been the blandest Brits in years. Aside from a frisson of post-breakup tension between Harry Styles and Taylor Swift (who took to the stage wearing a sexy black hot-pant jumpsuit with gold embellishments) there was little in the way of shock, surprises, or backstage gossip (or if there is, it hasn’t made it’s way down to us yet!).
The details of this year's Brit Awards goody bag has been revealed. It includes a Treehouse holiday.
Adele, Mumford & Sons, Emeli Sande, blah, blah, blah: nobody really cares who walks away with the Brit Awards right? Lets face it, we tune in every year in the hope of some clunky presenting, a stiletto heel break, or a wardrobe malfunction. However, something else that appears to be of interest before every Brit Awards ceremony is the shadowy goody bags that each nominee and performer gets to take home. The Academy Awards put the stoppers on their Oscars gift bags years ago, owing totax concerns, but the British don't care about that. The Brit Awards goody bags and back - but what's in them this year?
Well, according to ceremony organizers, the biggest names in pop music will be taking home a Lucky Voice Karaoke Kit, in order to practise at home, we assume. For the girls, there's also a Jack French London Primrose Bag, while for the boys, it's a Twenty8 signature bag from The London Collection. Elsewhere, there's a Paperblanks journal ensuring telephone numbers can by duly scribbled down at the after-party, and there's also some Highland Angel cufflinks and Ti Senti Milani jewellery. Fancy.
Hey, there's also a scarf (for the cold weather) and some bamboo sunglasses (for the hot weather), as well as JBL headphones and a JBL 'flip' portable wireless stereo system. Should - heaven forbid - any of the celebrities forget to shower themselves in perfume and aftershave, the goody bag contains a Hugo Boss fragrance for the guys, and a Boss Nuit perfume for the ladies.

The BRIT Awards 2013 takes place tonight, but could they be doing so without their host James Corden? Reports suggest that the comedian and actor has developed a throat infection this week, placing his participation in jeopardy.
Yesterday (February 18, 2013) The Daily Mirror reported a source as telling them about the illness, in a manner that suggested him dropping out wasn’t out of the question. “James has suffered with it in the past so recognised the symptoms straightaway” they apparently said. "He knew he had to act fast and rest immediately to stop the viral infection developing any further” they continued, before adding “James has been really excited about presenting the Brit awards and doesn’t want to have to pull out so getting better in time for the big night is his number one priority.”

Gavin & Stacey actress Joanna Page has given birth to her first child, welcoming Eva Madelief Russell on Friday, February 15, 2013. The 34-year-old actress, who played Stacey in the hugely successful BBC comedy series, is married to former Emmerdale actor James Thornton.
Page announced the news on Twitter, telling followers, "We are delighted to announce that Eva Madelief Russell was born 15th Feb,10:58am, weighing 6lbs 8ozs at The Lindo Wing. She's adorable!" Page, who lives in Oxfordshire with husband James, recently appeared in ITV drama The Syndicate and Sky drama Gates, with Tom Ellis. She gave birth at the private maternity unit in St Mary's Hospital, London. James, Joanna's husband of nine years, also tweeted of his delight, saying he was "over the moon," after becoming a father. He also revealed that baby Eva weighed in at a modest 6lbs 8ozs!
An American version of Gavin & Stacey - renamed Friends & Family - is currently in the casting process, with Parenthood star Jason Ritter thought to be on-board. The original show followed the long-distance relationship of Gavin (Matthew Horne) from Essex and Stacey (Page) from Barry in the Vale of Glamorgan. Writers James Corden and Ruth Jones also co-starred as Gavin and Stacey's respective best friends.

What is it about London's Groucho Club that has celebrities returning week-in-week-out? Harry Styles, the youngest member of One Direction, turns 19-years-old today (January 31, 2013) and chose London's hippest venue as the place to party with ex-girlfriends Caroline Flack and Cara Devalinge and pals James Corden and Nick Grimshaw on Thursday evening. The boys had started the evening at a Mexican restaurant, but all roads led to London's most infamous hangout - an unassuming members' club in the heart of London's Soho district.
Caroline Flack turned up wearing a red fur jacket and some futuristic heels, while Cara opted for leather trousers and a striped jacket following an appearance at Burberry's bash at their flagship store in Regent Street. Harry and Caroline have been close since they dated for three-months when he was 17, with the Xtra Factor presenter describing him as "brilliant and so much fun." On Thursday, Styles opted for a weird looking shiny blazer, while Radio 1 breakfast DJ Grimshaw went for a fitted black jacket. In all fairness, Corden was probably the best dressed of the guys, in jeans, a shirt and smart sweater.
British star James Corden says he's still holding out for a role on Lena Dunham's Golden Globe winning comedy series Girls. The Gavin & Stacey actor was sounded out by Dunham and co-writer Jenni Konner for the first series, though his commitments to Broadway show One Man, Two Guvnors meant he was unable to take part.
The 34-year-old says he's still keen to hook up with Dunham - considered one of the most exciting writing talents in television. "I was approached to be in the first series but had to decline due to work commitments; I really hope it works out that I can be in the show in the future. I think working with Lena would be an amazing experience," Corden told Company magazine. The season two premiere of Girls aired on Sunday (January 13, 2013) to unanimous praise from critics. It follows the story of various twenty-somethings living in New York City, though without the glitz and glamour of Sex and the City, Gossip Girl and the like. Corden added, "Girls is smart, funny, moving and completely original. Lena Dunham has written a show about real people in real situations, and the best thing about it is that real people love it. It also has - what I think to be - one of the best male performances ever by Adam, played by Adam Driver. His performance is so captivating and brilliant."
Writer Konner revealed he had approached Corden for the show having become "obsessed" with Gavin & Stacey, the BBC comedy that made the actor a household name.

Jack Whitehall is reportedly under pressure to stand down as presenter of a prize at the National Television Awards later in January following complaints about his performance on Channel 4's Big Fat Quiz Of The Year. His suitability for the appearance was called in question by NTA presenter George Mitchell who told the Daily Mail (who else?) that he wanted to hold a "summit conference" to decide if Whitehall should still be invited.
The furore began when an indignant article in the aforementioned newspaper criticised Channel 4's broadcast. It slammed lewd jokes about The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, President Barack Obama, sprinter Usain Bolt and the singer Susan Boyle. Mitchell said he feared the controversy could "run and run" and offered Whitehall "the chance to withdraw."
However, creator and executive producer of the NTA (i.e, somebody with more power than Mitchell) told The Independent, "Contrary to spurious reports earlier today, I would like to confirm that there has been no crisis summit over Jack Whitehall's invitation to present an award at this year's National Television Awards. We are very much looking forward to welcoming him on January 23 for our live show."
Channel 4 must be breathing a huge sigh of relief that they didn’t decide to invite Frankie Boyle on this year’s Big Fat Quiz show, because they’ve managed to cause enough controversy, without having the sharp-tongued Scotsman on board. This year, the damage has been done largely by Jack Whitehall and James Corden, who were openly drinking a bottle of red wine throughout the show and made a number of crude jokes about The Queen, as well as Barack Obama and Susan Boyle.
Lord Burns, the chairman of Channel 4, declined the opportunity to speak to the Daily Mail about the show, but the British newspaper is up in arms about its distasteful content. The outrage has spread beyond the press, though, with Tory MP Conor Burns – a member of the Commons’ culture media and sport select committee – demanding to know why the show was aired as early as 9pm. “I actually watched some of the broadcast because we are staying with family for the holidays and I found it quite distasteful,” said the MP. “It was base, unfunny comedy and in some ways I thought its greater crime really was that it just wasn’t funny.”
At one point during the show, James Corden and Jack Whitehall attempted to cover up one of their answers, aware that it was inappropriate, but eventually revealed what they had written on the screen anyway. A sample of the ‘vulgar’ comedy on display during the quiz was Whitehall’s comment about Cary Rae Jepsen: “If you had given your number to someone like Carly Rae Jepsen and discovered how annoying she was, you would suck someone’s c*** to get rid of her.”
James Corden’s stuttering performance under pressure at last year’s BRIT Awards ultimately hasn’t ruined his chances of being asked back, with the event confirming that the actor and comedian will be returning to host the music awards in 2013.
The televised awards descended into controversy this year after Corden was ordered by production to tell best British album winner Adele to cut her acceptance speech short so that they’d have time to show all of Blur’s performance. Unhappy with that, Adele flipped the bird at the cameras and the event came under criticism for essentially telling the night’s biggest winner to get off stage.
Corden will be hoping that there’ll be no repeat of that this time round, with the organizers having hopefully learnt their lesson. In addition to his confirmation to return, organizers have also revealed that Damien Hirst will follow in the footsteps of Sir Peter Blake and Dame Vivienne Westwood in designing the statuette to be handed out to winners in 2013. According to the Telegraph, BRITS chairman David Joseph said: "We are delighted that Damien will become the third extraordinary creative Briton to re-imagine the Brit statue. He is truly one of the most important British artists ever and his unique vision will make winning a 2013 Brit an even more special proposition."
Is an x factor 2012 boycott on the cards? According to the Daily Record, a huge number of fans, including some celebrity viewers of the show – have decided that after last Sunday’s fiasco (October 7, 2012), they will no longer tune into the show. 'X Factor' has been plagued with allegations of results fixing, since one of the show’s producer’s was seen “crawling along the studio floor to have a word” with X Factor judge Louis Walsh.
Louis initially seemed to opt to save Carolynne Poole, from Leeds who was undoubtedly the more talented singer in the sing-off. However, Louis then back-pedalled and eventually said that he wanted to the vote to go to a deadlock, meaning that camp Rylan got through on public votes. Fans of the show were outraged; the actress Tamsin Outhwaite vowed not to watch the show again, saying “I feel free knowing I will never watch 'X Factor' again after last night’s fiasco. My weekends are mine again.” The comedian James Corden also branded the decision ”bullsh*t.”
The producer who spoke to Walsh during the sing-off was 62 year-old Richard Holloway. He released a statement to defend himself and the show against allegations of fixing, which read “We regularly chat to the judges during the show…On Sunday I was telling Louis the order the judges would vote in. We don’t tell the judges how to vote.” A show source said that Sunday night’s show had been “a shambles.” This could go either way for 'X Factor'. Disgruntled pessimists convinced of foul play may decide to leave the house for a change on a Saturday night. On the other hand, the rest of the country might start tuning in to see what all this fuss is about. And many viewers will simply want to see if Gary Barlow has stopped sulking about it all, yet.
D'Artagnan has always dreamt of becoming a Musketeer but being too young he's never been able to leave his home town of Gascony and make the trip to Paris. Now a little older and less naive he travels to Paris where, through a rather unusual scenario, befriends three seasoned and well respected Musketeers named Athos, Porthos, and Aramis.
