Disney’s newest film features stars Meryl Streep (which by herself is enough), Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Emily Blunt, and the man himself, Johnny Depp, among others. Yes, Into The Woods has a star-studed cast that boasts even stronger inspiration in Stephen Sondheim’s Broadway hit. The film opened this weekend to both rave critical reviews and wild success at the box office. Opening Christmas weekend isn’t always the easiest, especially when there are incredible biopics, scandalous controversy and that whole JRR Tolkien series finale to deal with. By topping $15M on opening night and projecting for over $40M in its first weekend, Into The Woods is well on it’s way to being one of the bigger live-action Disney films of the year. It’s received numerous nominations for awards season and currently boasts a 72% on rottentomatoes.com.
