On Wednesday night, Into the Woods held its UK Gala Premiere in London with star-studded appearance by Director Rob Marshall, Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Colden, Daniel Huttlestone and Tracey Ullman. This movie was inspired by Grimm Brother’s fairy tales and comprised of 4 well-known fairy tales, “Red Riding Hood”, “Cinderella”, “Rapunzel” and “Jack and the Beanstalk”. The plot was centered around a couple, played by James Colden and Emily Blunt, who could not bear any children as they were cursed by the Witch, played by Meryl Streep. Later, the Witch offered to lift her curse if the couple could obtain 4 items instructed by the Witch. In search for these items, the couple met Cinderella, Rapunzel, Red Riding Hood and Jack and stories began to differ from what we know of…
Despite the cold windy weather, huge crowd of media and fans gathered before the start of the event. Meryl Streep’s appearance gathered loud screams from fans who hoped to capture her attention from a distance.
